When I read The Doctor’s Secret, I found myself more interested in Erin and Owen than I was in the current couple. Maybe it’s because I love a good enemies to lovers story, because they always light up the pages.
Erin and Owen had fire.
There’s something about a sexy fight that really gets me going, and Erin and Owen really knew how to sexy fight. Especially because, for Owen, he knew he was sexy fighting. He loved it. He starts a fight with Erin specifically because it’s hot. It made me laugh every time.
I also really loved Owen’s protective streak. I love Owen in general, but every time he gets all growly bear over his friends I love him just a little more. When he got all growly bear in protection of Erin, I died. It was so adorable.
I also liked how small and delicate, but with a bite to him. He reminded me of those little fairy’s flying around the labyrinth in Labyrinth. The only time he was cowed was when his father was around.
That’s where the story went downhill.
There was a lot of plot in The Doctor’s Date, and a lot of it was good. Erin and his father was the only thread in the story that I’m not sure I liked how it ended. It was a little too perfect, personally. I don’t like when everything is all wrapped up in a bow. I feel like Owen should have been enough.
I already have the last story in the book in the trilogy, and while I’m not quite as interested in Nick and Jared, I’m still looking forward to reading it. I always look forward to Heidi Cullinan.
