The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.
I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)
Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.
Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.
Turns out no isn’t an option.
I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)
When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.
He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.
I’m not supposed to make him look twice.
And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)
Falling for him is definitely a mistake.
Here’s the thing…
Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.
I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
“Someday, Jake, love will find you. And when it does, you won’t have a choice but to accept it.”
“Suddenly all those cliches I’d made fun of seemed so real. The earth shifted. The ground moved under my feet. I was on cloud nine.”
“What was this between us? We hardly knew each other. We were both at crossroads in our life. And yet, knowing that didn’t seem to change this chemical reaction between us. It should have. It should have been a warning. I didn’t understand it. All I did know was that I wanted to be with him as well. I wanted to touch him. To feel him. Every beautiful inch of him. For as long as I could.”
When I think of romance, this is exactly what I want. I want a story that makes me feel. A story that makes me swoon. A story that pulls emotions out of me and turns my world upside down. And for me, The Thing About Love was exactly what my heart was looking for. This book…It just consumed me from the moment I picked it. From the moment I started reading this book, I just had a feeling it was going to be a special and unique read…And boy was I ever right! The Thing About Love is a beautiful and expected read. I had no idea what my heart would be in store for when I picked up this book and I’ll be the first to tell you, there is nothing I loved more than when a book surprises me. And let me tell you, this book surprised me in the best, best way.
From the moment I met Jules and Jake, I was hooked. The banter and chemistry between the two of them was just explosive. Jake is the sexy, broody, successful doctor. He’s been dealt some pretty tough cards in his life, but nothing means more to him than family. So, when his sister is determined to make him a part of her wedding planning, he’ll do anything to make her happy….And that’s where Jules comes in to play. There is nothing more that Jules loves than planning peoples special days. She is the kind of girl that you just can’t help but fall in love with. She’s smart, beautiful, kind, a bit clumsy, but has a huge heart. She loves love, but sucks when it comes to her own relationships. The last thing Jules ever planned on was Jake. Like I said, their chemistry is explosive and just oozes off the pages. They challenge and push one another. You could tell that these two were meant to be; that fate had brought them together. But, that their course must play out and that they must find their way in order to be happy…
The Thing About Love is a beautiful, honest and heartwarming love story that just captured my heart. From entertaining banter and delicious humor. To sexy good times and swoon worthy moments. To moments that just pulled at your heart and put tears in your eyes. This book hit all the marks for me. The characters are real, raw and easy to connect with. Their story is beautiful and intense at the same time. You will be glued to the pages and hit with a ton of emotions just as I was.
The Thing About Love is so much more than a love story. It is a story of family. A story of hope. It is a story of loss and letting go of the guilt that consumes you. It is a story of finding peace and living. But, most of all, it is a story about taking chances and holding on to love with everything you’ve got. This series is off to one heck of a start and I can not wait to see where this series is going to go next.
