TITLE - The Thing About Love
AUTHOR - Kim Karr
An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
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.
“The Doctor and the Wedding Planner, 5 stars”
Jake is dedicated to his family, a hard worker, and an honest man. He loves his Grandmother and baby sister something fierce. Loves his job more than most and is always up front and honest with women about where they stand. He knows where he’s going and it’s only a matter of when. No one person or woman will change his mind. Even if she’s everything he thought he never wanted.
Jules is trying. She has a job she loves but can’t seem to handle all the responsibilities that have come upon her. Leaving her floundering. She has one shot left to right her mistakes. Her last job is a difficult one but it also brings her a form of happiness into her life, Jake and his grandmother. She truly finds her footing for the first time in years even though she knows there is an end date.
Karr took this story in a direction that I never even thought of. She gave Jake and Jules a bond that was ingenious. They were able to show each other their scars and accepted the other one for who they were. They weren’t out to change each other, knew the score, and fell in love despite all of that. I can’t wait for the next two stories involving characters from The Thing About Love.
