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.

And this is why I read romance.
I just love finishing a book with a happy sigh.
I enjoyed Jake and Jules journey to finding love.
Jules and Jake didn't have the best of first meetings though and it wasn't exactly insta love.
The thing about love begins with Jules also known as Juliette who is a wedding planner anxiously awaiting a client who is coming to view the incredible cake that has been made and to go over her wedding plans in the hope to get the job, money is tight and business is struggling so landing the wedding of the governors son to his fiance would be the turnaround Juliette needs.
When the handsome, hottie Jake walks in the shop and during conversation about the cake starts to flirt and begins to hit on her then a few minutes later a woman who Jules thinks his fiance walks in. Jules without thinking face plants him with cake, disgusted that a soon to be married man would act that way. When another male walks in behind her Jules knows she has made a mistake. Jake Kissinger is the bride to be's brother.
Jules and Jake are great characters. The truth about love, truly is a story of finding real love and not settling for less.
I reached around 50% before anything happened between Jake and Jules and to be honest I was losing interest but when they got it on, they really got it on.
Jake and Jules had so much chemistry between them, it was so hot.
The thing about love has humour, hotness Great characters, it's told in first person dual pov and leads to a heart warming hea.
Did I mention Jake Kissinger was a doctor too? a hot doctor?
Doctor Kiss meet my bbf shelf.
Another entertaining read by Kim Karr.
