The Thing About Love by Kim Karr

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.

You know when you like a book but something is just missing that keeps you from loving it? That was the case with The Thing About Love. This book was a fun read that will definitely make you swoon with just enough emotion thrown in to keep you connected but it was just missing that umph that makes you fall head over heals in love with it. 

Jake is the hot doctor that you can't help but love. Jules is the sweet and quirky wedding planner that you can connect with.  There is instant attraction, the only thing is attraction doesn't equal love. Jules is hired to plan Jake's sister wedding. Her job is line with her uncle and she knows she has to pull this off. Even if she is on a TIGHT deadline. It doesn't help that even though Jake is hot, she can't stand him. 

The Thing about Love had many hilarious moments, filled with swoon worthy moments. It also had moments that will pull at your heart strings. Kim did a good job on intertwining all the elements and that allowed the book the flow well. I really, really wanted to love this book. I will say that this won't deter me from reading any future books by Kim.

I love when I get a book that is enemies to lovers. You know that there is going to be some really big fireworks that take place when they can’t stand each other and then again when they finally realize they are meant to be.  That is pretty much what happened in this book. Jake and Jules were definitely proving to one another that the other was a force to be reckoned with.

Dr. Jake hires Jules to plan his sisters wedding and plan it fast.  Dear old Grandma is dying of cancer and really wants to see her get married.  Now we all know how hard it is to plan a wedding, so just imagine having to plan if with someone you really don’t like- at all.  Then imagine seeing that person in a whole different light then you thought.  Actually seeing that he is the one that you have been looking for all along, you just had to open you heart and your mind and see what is right in front of you.

There were lots of laugh out loud parts to this book as well as those moments that made you want to grab the nearest box of Kleenex.  I am can’t want to see what happens with Jules MMA fighter cousin in the next book.
