What's Hot?: The Doctor's Date by Heidi Cullinan
" This tear-jerker is a captivating winner."
About the book
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.
Reviews and What Readers Say
“Thoroughly enjoyed this read and had been looking forward to Erin & Owen's story since Heidi first introduced them in bk1. I like how their relationship progressed, how they both worked together despite their apparent differences and how they supported each other almost immediately.”

“ I enjoyed this story about Owen and Erin (and finally learned why Erin’s name is spelled this way). They both had a lot of trauma, and it was lovely to see them work through it together.”

“ Im always up for a good enemies to lovers story and honestly I was highly anticipating reading this one because the main characters in this story were introduced in the first book and they were always at each others’ throats. However, the tone of their relationship quickly changed in my opinion when this book started. A fundraiser for a new cardiac unit at the hospital bring also a bachelor auction and our HR Direction Erin Andreas decides he will bid whatever it takes to have Owen to himself. That starts a chain of events and reactions that I felt were a bit out of character and I had a hard time grasping the reasons why.
Both Erin and Owen have their own personal and mental issues to deal with because of their past and their parents and I liked how this book tackled that. Overall the story was enjoyable and I’m still a fan of the group of friends in this small town hospital. But I don’t think I got what I was expecting when it comes to the romance and the relationship. Owen and Erin were adorable when they were together though, and I’m interested to see how this series will end enough to probably read the third book as well.”
