Author: Lola Keeley


Skilled surgeon Veronica Mallick runs her London hospital department like she runs her surgeries: with hawkish efficiency. Then her perfect world is turned upside down by the arrival of a new Head of Trauma.

Cassie Taylor is a brash, no-nonsense army surgeon, fresh from the front lines, and trying to find her way in civilian life. She’s all action and sharp edges, not too interested in rules. She’s even less interested in bureaucracy, or playing nice with her uptight, paper-pushing colleague, Veronica.

While they’re circling each other warily at St. Sophia’s hospital, Cassie becomes entangled in some shady financial dealings.

Their shared search for the truth draws them closer together, sparking heated moments as they try to see justice done. But in exposing a scandal, can they also find some common ground? How will they both deal with being attracted to a woman they don’t even like?


An enemies-to-lovers lesbian romance about sexy, smart doctors cutting to the heart of what matters.

    Lola Keeleys second book is also a good one. Although I sometimes lost track of who says what, all in all it was a good read. The bitchy doctor and the ex-army doctor are like fire and ice, but sometimes that’s a good match!

    I really enjoyed Lola Keeley’s second book Major Surgery. This is a medical drama/romance that will keep your interest all the way through the book. The story revolves around two characters; St. Sophia Hospital’s surgical department head Veronica Mallick and the new head of the Trauma Department, ex-army surgeon Cassie Taylor. The two meet under less than friendly terms, but as the tale unfolds they slowly become friends and then more. There is drama in the story, both medical as well as personal. There is some angst and a fairly slow romance. I enjoyed the pace of the story as well as the romance.
    The only real problem I had with the book was something I don’t think the author could have helped since it involved the medical system in the UK. I didn’t understand the way the hospital system worked there, especially the way they divided up the departments. I also didn’t recognize some of the titles given to the staff, since many of those titles in the story were abbreviations that I didn’t know. I finally just started ignoring those things and hoped it wouldn’t cause me problems understanding the story. Thankfully, it didn’t and I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
    Ms. Keeley has proven with this, her second novel, that she is an excellent author. I can recommend this book to all who love a good medical romance. I look forward to reading more of her writing in the future.

    Major Cassie Taylor is head of trauma and Dr.Veronica Mallick is head of acute medical unit at St.Sophia’s Hospital
    Both are highly professional,highly dedicated doctors sharing or trying to share the A and E unit.
    This is a great story.
    If you enjoy watching two head strong,complicated women work out their issues while saving lives then this is the book for you.

    This was such an amazing read! I’ve been waiting for this since I heard its first announcement and it was well worth the wait. The characters were complex and incredibly enjoyable to read about. The story was engaging and I finished it in two sittings. Once I started read I just couldn’t put it down!

    I think it was the exceptionally desirable characters in ‘Major Surgery’ that first grabbed my attention. Veronica appears to be a bit aloof and the classic Ice Queen, but appearances can be deceptive. Army medic Cassie makes quite an impression from the get-go. She is determined, unconventional and very, very hot. The London teaching hospital setting was perfect. It gave us a chance to wander the capital’s streets, which were recognisable and familiar and an integral part of the story.

    Lola Keeley impressed me with her previous novel, ‘The Music and the Mirror’, so I was looking forward to this new one. She did not disappoint. She writes of small, seemingly insignificant looks and glances that could be missed, except we know what they mean. When Veronica can’t keep her eyes off Cassie we know why. The slow build-up was perfect – the sexual tension at some points was palpable. I couldn’t get enough. ‘Major Surgery’ is the kind of story of that will have you cheering . Wonderful !❤️❤️

    Two women who know what they want from life. What could possibly go wrong? What can hopefully go right? A medical romance that has drama, both personal and professional, a great cast of characters and an interesting plot line.
    I enjoyed this story from the first page. It is realistic and well written. I look forward to reading more books from this author.
    I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.
