I loved the Wedding Ringer and this one as well.
I love watching shows about zoos and zookeepers with their animals. It is such an amazing job to care for an exotic, endangered animal.
A romance between the very competent career driven keeper and the host of the wildlife docuseries. Well he’s the son of her idol and she can’t wait to meet him but then after he makes a bad impression she does the same back.
I will say once they got into a good working relationship their crazy animal, bug facts was superb. I’m definitely a person that says something absurd when it gets to personal or I get uncomfortable.
They both had issues with their childhood. Not everyone is meant to be a parent or was the right time for them unfortunately. Especially for Lucy as she sees her little sister get the childhood of her dreams. It causes her to ignore her mother and not get close to her half sister.
I love when families get a second chance though it will take awhile to get to a good place. Whereas, some are just toxic and you have to cut out.

A zookeeper always on the fringe learns to go after her wildest dreams—including a certain television star—in this charming and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by Kerry Rea, author of The Wedding Ringer.
Lucy Rourke has two great loves in her life: the gorilla troop she cares for as a primatologist and the laundry list of reality TV shows she watches to escape the fact that her actual love life doesn’t exist. And like a reality contestant gunning for the final rose, Lucy’s laser-focused on one thing: getting promoted to head keeper. So when a wildlife docuseries hosted by hotshot TV personality Kai Bridges chooses her zoo as its summer filming location, she sees an opportunity to showcase her beloved gorillas to the world and land a starring role in her department.
When Kai and his film crew arrive, however, it’s obvious to Lucy that Kai cares more about sky-high ratings than the gorillas, and he considers her a camera-averse know-it-all whose wardrobe consists entirely of khaki. But she’s surprised to discover there’s more to him than his rugged good looks and cheesy catchphrases…and that maybe a promotion isn’t the only thing she wants. But when secrets from their pasts threaten to complicate everything, Lucy discovers that happiness and success aren’t the same thing—and that finding joy just might mean getting a little wild.
