Release Blitz: The Thing About Love

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

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.


My Review:

I have to begin by saying it took me a little bit to get invested in this story, well maybe a chapter or so, but once I got into it, I was completely addicted! Juliette runs her uncle’s wedding planning business that is currently in severe financial trouble, but the wealthy Rory Kissinger chooses her to plan her wedding. Rory’s sexy older brother Jake is an ER doctor that is not very impressed with Jules in the beginning. But I loved her quirky confidence and loved the theme of love finding us in unexpected situations and unexpected people.

This novel was funny, frustrating, romantic, sad, and happy all combined into one fabulous package. Author Kim Karr definitely expressed her sense of humor, but also touched on several serious subjects surrounding failing businesses, drug addictions, deaths of family members, and so much more. Don’t let that scare you into thinking that this is some depressing tear-jerker because it’s truly amazing and left me with a warm, fuzzy feeling. It’s just that The Thing About Love is not just a wonderful, steamy romance – it addresses real world issues and problems that any reader can identify with in one way or another.

Regarding characters, both Jake and Jules were fantastic. However, I must admit that Jake’s grandmother was exceptional, wise, and for me personally, she stole the show in this one. However, all of the secondary characters were fantastic and just added to my love of this novel.

The Thing About Love is my first time reading Kim Karr, but most definitely will not be my last. This was a wonderfully complex but “feel-good” novel that should absolutely be added to your TBR.
