Review: The Doctor's Date (Copper Point Medical #2) by Heidi Cullinan

Published June 18th 2019 by Dreamspinner Press
Genre: M/M, Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The hospital’s least eligible bachelor and its aloof administrator hate each other… so why are they pretending to date?

Dr. Owen Gagnon and HR director Erin Andreas are infamous for their hospital hallway shouting matches. So imagine the town’s surprise when Erin bids an obscene amount of money to win Owen in the hospital bachelor auction—and Owen ups the ante by insisting Erin move in with him.

Copper Point may not know what’s going on, but neither do Erin and Owen. Erin intends his gesture to let Owen know he’s interested. Owen, on the other hand, suspects ulterior motives—that Erin wants a fake relationship as a refuge from his overbearing father.

With Erin suddenly heading a messy internal investigation, Owen wants to step up and be the hero Erin’s never had. Too bad Erin would rather spend his energy trying to rescue Owen from the shadows of a past he doesn’t talk about.

This relationship may be fake, but the feelings aren’t. Still, what Erin and Owen have won’t last unless they put their respective demons to rest. To do that, they’ll have to do more than work together—they’ll have to trust they can heal each other’s hearts.



While I may have liked this book slightly more than the first, this wasn't what I thought it would be from the synopsis. Erin and Owen's situation ended up being quite different from what I was expecting, so that threw me off. Somehow, they made things work by dealing with their issues together. The more time they spent together, the more they made sense as a couple, and I wanted to see them get their happy ending.

Overall, this was just another okay read. It was a bit boring at times, and there's not much excitement. I'm glad that the spelling of Erin's name was cleared up for me (it really bothered me in the first book!) I'll still be reading the 3rd and final book in this series since I need to know what happens for the next couple.

My rating: 3 stars
