Review: Doc Showmance by Zoe Forward

I would say Dr. Ian Todd is my archenemy. But that would require us acknowledging each other, which we haven’t done since we graduated veterinary school.

He’s famous. As in, he’s the world’s “Sexiest Veterinarian Alive” with his own wildlife TV show and a string of glamorous girlfriends.

I’m infamous as a reality TV emergency veterinarian with a snark mouth, take-no-crap attitude, and zero dating life.

When asked to fake a romance with him on TV to boost my ER show’s ratings, I want to say no-way, but the extra money will pay off my brother’s loan shark debt. Even though Ian broke my heart, playing his love interest shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means getting to watch him squirm.

Lines get blurred when the TV setups stop feeling fake. Can I chance this might be real love?

Amber is a superstar emergency vet forced to work on camera as the hospital where she’s employed has a contract with a reality show. She’s not a big fan but she’s too busy at work to really care, until the day her nemesis walks through the door. Of all the vets the producers could have chosen to bring on board, they picked the one man she can’t stand. He’s the last person she expected to see working in her clinic but just when she thinks there’s no way this can get worse, the producers drop a bomb: she’s going to have a fake relationship with Ian on camera.

They went to school together and while they were never friends, they tolerated one another well enough until Ian inadvertently played a cruel prank on Amber. She has loathed him ever since so he’s got a lot of work to do to win her over. He’s less than thrilled either, since the producer is blackmailing him, but he’s forced to play along. And in all honesty, there’s nobody he’d rather fake date so Ian’s not too upset about the arrangement, unlike Amber. They have to play nice in front of the cameras, which is easier said than done, since Amber’s great at holding a grudge.  

I enjoyed these characters and loved their snarky banter. Their story is sweet and funny and I highly recommend it. I received an ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
