Dating Dr. Dil features a love-phobic TV doctor who must convince a love-obsessed homebody they are destined to be together.
Kareena Mann dreams of having a love story like her parents, but she prefers restoring her classic car to swiping right on dating apps. When her father announces he’s selling her mother’s home, Kareena makes a deal with him: he’ll gift her the house if she can get engaged in four months. Her search for her soulmate becomes impossible when her argument with Dr. Prem Verma, host of The Dr. Dil Show, goes viral. Now the only man in her life is the one she doesn’t want.
Dr. Prem Verma is dedicated to building a local community health center, but he needs to get donors with deep pockets. The Dr. Dil Show was doing just that, until his argument with Kareena went viral, and he’s left short changed. That’s when Kareena’s meddling aunties presented him with a solution: convince Kareena he’s her soulmate and they’ll fund his clinic.
Even though they have conflicting views on love-matches and arranged-matches, the more time Prem spends with Kareena, the more he begins to believe she’s the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. But for Prem and Kareena to find their happily ever after, they must admit that hate has turned into fate.
Enemies to lovers may be my most loved romance trope ever, there’s something about that thin line between love and hate that just makes for some sizzling chemistry. Some authors do this trope better than others but I think this author may have done it better than all of them! True enemies who really and truly dislike each other and then a slow switch to lust. I found so much of this one to be original and I think I’m a romance specifically that can be tough. One of the most original and interesting things about this for me was that originally Prem and Kareena actually spend a night chatting over drinks before shit goes up in flames and pieces of their conversation are revealed slowly throughout the book. It provided such a fun insight into their instant connection and it made me root even harder for them knowing how great they could be together if they could just get along. Besides A plus romance, heat and chemistry between the leads you also have hilarious family drama brought mostly by meddling families led by aunties. Also lots of delicious sounding Indian food, which pair food alongside any story and I’m SO in but next to a romance as sweet, swoony and sexy as this and I was 🥰 Highly recommended by me if you couldn’t tell!
