Sequel to The Doctor’s Secret
Copper Point Medical: Book Two
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.
I absolutely loved this story!!! Heidi gives us her take on two men going from enemies to fake boyfriend to sweet, loving partners.
Erin and Owen spend a lot of their time together snarking and stepping on each other’s toes but they both end up wanting to protect and rescue the other from their demons. I felt so much anguish learning about their pasts.
This book was pure emotional romance. Erin and Owen had such a strong emotional connection. There are a few make out scenes that are extremely mild considering this is a Heidi Cullinan book.
I suggest reading the first book, The Doctor’s Secret since almost all of the characters in this story are in that one as well. This book also continues the arc from the first book about the overbearing hospital board.
This was a great story with lots of emotions and sweetness. I strongly recommend it!
