ABOUT THE BOOK: 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:THE THING ABOUT LOVE by Kim Karr is a contemporary, adult, erotic, stand-alone, romance story line focusing on Dr. Jake Kissinger, and wedding planner Juliette Easton.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Jake and Juliette) THE THING ABOUT LOVE follows the building romance between ER physician Jake Kissinger, and wedding planner Juliette Easton. A case of mistaken identity finds our heroine smashing a piece of cake into Jake Kissinger’s face, only to realize her mistake may have cost her the biggest socialite wedding of the year. With the family owned Easton Design and Weddings of Atlanta on the verge of bankruptcy Juliette struggles to remain professional in the face of her attraction to the bride’s brother, and the potential for everything to fall apart. What ensues is the building relationship between Jake and Juliette when they are forced to work together to bring about the wedding of the year; and the potential fall out when love isn’t enough between our leading couple.
Jake Kissinger doesn’t do relationships. He is a man on a mission to get in, and get out, in the hopes of heading to New York to work for the same hospital where his father worked years before. Falling in love was never on the agenda but meeting Juliette Easton finds our hero caught between the woman he loves and the future he is determined to unfold.
Juliette Easton is a bit of a mess; an impulsive young woman who finds herself in trouble when her business decisions threaten the livelihood of the family owned East Design and Weddings. Winning the contract to plan one of Atlanta’s biggest weddings is sure to bring some life back into the business but a series of mishaps all but threatens to close down the thirty-five year old company.
The relationship between Juliette and Jake begins acrimoniously when Juliette mistakes Jake for the bride’s flirting fiancé. Forced to work together by the bride herself, Jake and Juliette will succumb to their attraction only to discover that love is never enough. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense but, once again, I do take issues with the use of a certain four-letter word-only used once (for shock value more than anything else)- but once is enough to push all of my buttons.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Jake’s sister (the bride to be) Rory Kissinger, and her fiancé Remington (Remy); their ailing grandmother Beatrice Beau Crawford Alexander; her butler and man-servant Roger; and home care aid Matthew. We are also introduced to Jake’s mentor Dr. Peter Wright; Jake’s estranged mother Monica; Juliette’s uncle Edward Easton and her cousin Finn; cake designer Montgomery and his partner Archer; and Juliette’s ex-fiance Jaxson Cassidy. I am looking forward to a happily ever after for Jaxson Cassidy.
THE THING ABOUT LOVE is a sexy and sassy story of romance and love; fate and forever. The premise is engaging and intoxicating; the romance is captivating and emotional; the characters are fun and inspiring.
