The Thing About Love
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 Thing About Love by Kim Karr is most definitely my favorite book by her to date. Written in dual perspective, we meet Jules and Jake.
After getting the wrong impression about Jake, Jules has to work closely with him to plan his sister’s wedding. The two are off to a rough start but all of that changes as they begin to work together. Of course Jules is working to save her business and has no interest in a man. As soon as the wedding is over, Jake is leaving and has no desire to find love.
However, life has a different path for both Jules and Jake and they are forever connected in a tragedy that has jaded both of their lives.
The Thing About Love was a sexy, sweet and heartbreakingly beautiful story of two people, destined to be together from the moment they locked eyes. I was emotionally invested in this story and did not put it down until I had finished it. The Thing About Love is a unique love story that is a must read!
I haven’t read it, just wondering why a doctor is walking around without a shirt. Really...
