The Thing About Love ~ Kim Karr ~ New Release & Review

Title: The Thing About Love
Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 3, 2018


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.

Review Copy Provided by Author

This took me a little bit to get into, but once I did, I was hooked!
Jules and Jake get off to a rough start and while I wouldn’t call them enemies, there is definitely animosity when they start working together.
5 weeks working together and their chemistry explodes into something more.
One of the things I appreciated about this story is that both Jake and Jules ended up taking a hard look at who they were and if they were living their best life. Both characters seemed to blossom as individuals when they were together. The thing I loved about their maturing process was that the changes were for them as people being their best, not just about making the relationship work.
Ms. Karr does an excellent job of blending steamy and emotional with some unexpected humor thrown in as well. This is a book where I was happy with the ending, but still wanted more. I’m so glad that there are more books coming in the series, I just hope we get glimpses of Jake and Jules.
