The Thing About Love by Kim Karr
Genre: contemporary, romantic comedy
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: January 3, 2018
Rating: ★★★★✰


A sexy, sweet read about frenemies turned lovers

Jules knew she had to nail this job or she would be kissing her uncle’s wedding planning company goodbye. Will she still land the job when she thinks the bride to be’s fiance is hitting on her and she throws a cake in his face? Oh, did I mention he wasn’t the fiance…

The Thing About Love is a hot steamy read with some heartache along the way. I loved the frenemies aspect of the story and felt Jules and Jake’s chemistry was amazing and hot, hot, hot!

Jake I found to be incredibly hot and bullheaded. He was funny and sweet as well. Jules I felt was a bit of a disaster at the beginning, but I still felt she was a great character throughout.

This was a great read for me and what a great way to kick off 2018.

4 Stars!

Synopsis:
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.
