4.7 Stars

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.

Jules has just taken over her uncle's Atlanta wedding planner company ... and it's not going good!
She needs to get hired for this huge society wedding or her uncle will have to sell the company!
But instead of impressing the bride with the amazing cake she had made, she kinda, accidentally - or not so accidentally - starts a little 'fight' with the brother of the bride!
Sexy Doc Jake!

And he is kind of paying for the wedding ... so ... not good!
But even if Jake wanted to stay far away from the crazy - and sexy - wedding lady, he doesn't have a choice. He needs this wedding to happen - and happen fast. And his sister is back at college - so it's on him to help Jules plan a wedding - something he never ever thought he'd do.
Let the fun times begin!



This story was so funny and cute and sweet right from the first page!
A really adorable romantic comedy
I loved it!
But of course there are also lots of very serious and moving parts too. I might have cried a little .. or a lot☺!

We have this really hot and rich and slightly crumpy doctor.

And the pretty, but slightly clumsy wedding planner!
Perfect recipe for an amazing romantic comedy!!!
But we also have the sad stories about both their parents and Jake's grandmother. Heartbreaking!

Then there's the introduction into a character who'll get his own book soon - Finn - Jules' cousin. He wants to be an MMA fighter.
And Jules' ex Jaxson will also get his own book. (Btw. Jules accidentally sends him a very erotic video - which she wanted to send to Jake! LOL!)

I really enjoyed reading this book.
It had an amazing feeling to it. Not sure what I mean by that. Maybe it was the southern thing or the no-mega-exaggerated-dramas or the wedding atmosphere. I really loved the feeling that came over me while reading. I know, I'm weird. ☺

The only thing I didn't love-love. Atlanta in the heat of summer! Ugh - I hate heat and it's winter here! So I would've preferred a more winterish book set in a more winterish place - BUT - pfff - that really doesn't have anything to do with the story - that's just me being weird again! ☺

THE THING ABOUT LOVE was an adorable & funny & sexy & heartbreakingly moving Wedding Planner Romance!!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Dr. Jake - this one is MINE!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

It is always a good day when a new Kim Karr story turns up on your kindle.

A grumpy doctor who doesn't want to be near her. The wedding planner who doesn't believe in love any more.

Yep, you can just feel right from the first slice of cake that there is going to be sparks between our lovelies.

I adore our lovely wedding planner Jules. She is completely adorable in her slightly clumsy ways.  I couldn't help but love her.

Jake.. le sigh. He made me want to get sick so I could go find him at my local ER!

There are great secondary characters rounding out Jake and Jules' story. I freaking love love love Monty and Archer and they need their own book stat!

There is also Jule's cousin Finn and her ex Jaxson that I need more of - soon.

There is just something about this story that I loved.  It is not something I can put my finger on and say "that's it!". The Thing About Love just as a wonderful vibe about it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the first word to the last.

I wanted more.

Please give me more, Ms Karr. And don't make me wait too long (I know, greedy and impatient here!!)

I look forward to seeing what Ms Karr brings us next.
