Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Release Date: January 3, 2018


The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of

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.



When I started this book there was a scene that almost made me stop, a scene where the heroine acts stupidly and it annoys me that the authors make their heroines act in this way. However, I continued reading and I don’t regret it.

Juliette’s job is to organize weddings, she knows what she’s doing and she’s doing it well, however the company is doing badly and despite all the efforts that Juliette is doing nothing is working. The last wedding she will have to organize is a very VIP wedding and she has little time to prepare it. She will have the help of Jake the brother of the bride, doctor and mule head.

Juliette after this first passage where she annoyed me becomes someone totally pleasant, she’s smart, a little crazy and especially she likes what she does. She doesn’t let anyone walk on her feet even though Jake manages to get her out of hinges. Their meeting is electric and the rest of the adventure is under tension, their attraction to each other is magic. They attract each other like two magnets and cannot separate.

Jake is a perfect man, he knows how to be caring, he takes care of his sister and his grandmother and absolutely wants to follow in his father’s footsteps. I love his way of taking care of people, he’s arrogant but tender and as much telling you that sexual tension is present from beginning to end. It seems like Jake and Juliet cannot do without each other. I also like his protective side towards Juliette that he discovers and which surprises him.

The thing about love is a love story, a love that binds two people who don’t want to believe and who are pushed towards each other. I loved their meeting and the various and varied moments after, the tenderness of their feelings and the love they feel towards each other.

Quick Word: A magical love story that allowed Juliette to find her North Star.
