The Thing About Love
By Kim Karr
Releasing January 3rd, 2018

In The Thing About Love by Kim Karr, when Juliette 'Jules' Easton is hired to plan a wedding in just five weeks, she doesn't expect the bride to make her team up with the woman's brother. Yet, seeing as she's stuck with him, Jules is determined to make the most of the situation. However, she never imagined she'd fall for the arrogant and cocky doctor. Will Jules be able to convince Jake Kissinger that they deserve a shot at happy ever after, or are his plans for his future too important for him to stick around and find happiness with Jules?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Karr, and what a book it was. Really, it was incredibly well-crafted, compelling and a wonderful combination of intense moments and playful banter that made this story an absolute page turner right from the beginning to the end. The way this story started had me hoping for the best for the heroine, because she needs things to go her way due to what's happening with the family business. Will she be able to turn things around? Will she be able to handle planning a wedding with Jake? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine met where this story got very interesting, as the heroine doesn't make the best first impression when she meets Jake. Will he give her another chance to prove herself, especially after her case of mistaken identity?

As for the main characters, both are relatable, incredibly likeable and I loved every moment they conversed, especially in the beginning because there's a bit of discord between them because of what happened when they first meet. Moreover, the heroine is resilient when it comes to her job and being able to go on after the loss she suffered in her past.  I also liked how determined she was to create the perfect day for the bride, because if she doesn't, she could lose everything important to her; and I also enjoyed the challenge she and Jake provided each other, as it creates wonderful sexual tension between them that eventually spills over onto the pages in fan-your-face sex scenes that spice up the story. Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was that she would do anything for those she loves, which is proven by what she does for one of her family members.  

While the hero, he's been through so much in his life and the guilt he's felt over what happened to his father has him determined to follow in the man's footsteps. Will Jake be happy with the choice he makes? Moreover, the hero is also confident, cocky and I loved how he would do anything for family, because his gran and sister are important to him. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is that he opened up to the heroine about his past and how readers learn how connected their past is because they both lost people to one of the most terrible tragedies. 

Overall, Ms. Karr has delivered a must read in this book where the ending left me completely satisfied, as the hero realizes he can't live without Jules in his life. I also liked how the ending of this story helps the pair to heal from the hurts of their pasts because of what the hero discovers. I would recommend The Thing About Love by Kim Karr, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope or books by authors Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Lauren Blakely and Meghan March.


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.
