The Thing About Love by Kim Karr Release Blitz with 5-Star Review & Giveaway! My first favorite read of 2018!

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 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.

*****5 ++ STARS*****

Holy cow and wow!!!!! Kim Karr has knocked my socks off! This romance has EVERYTHING!!! It’s funny, it’s emotional, it’s romantic and sexy….it’s PERFECTION!!!!!

Jules is a wedding planner who has taken over her uncle’s successful wedding consultant company so he can enjoy retirement. One slight problem….since Jules has taken over, she is losing money, even after she has put her own savings into it. Now, her uncle has given her an ultimatum. She has to the end of the summer to turn things around or he is selling it. She thinks she has the perfect solution, land the governor’s future daughter-in-law as a client. Jules is positive she can do it, and she is more than ready for her first meeting to pitch her proposal. That is until a case of mistaken identity occurs, and she ends up smashing cake in the bride’s brother’s face. The brother who will be heavily involved in picking a planner. Yeah, Jules and Jake don’t start off on good footing, but as they spend more time together, the enemies become friends and even more. Too bad, they know hardly anything about love.

Not only did Kim Karr blow me away with the storyline, I fell in love with her characters as well, not just Jules and Jake, but with Finn, Montgomery, Rory, Jaxson, all of them. The additional characters were just as important to the book as Jules and Jake. These two were meant to be together. They had a lot to learn about love to get their HEA, but they were important lessons that were necessary.

Kim Karr is a new author to me, but she now sits at the top of my list of favorite writers. This book is a perfect example of why I have come to love her so much. She takes our own perceptions of love such as, love is patient, love is kind, and she turns them around. Through these characters, I learned that love isn’t always patient. I’m a perfect example of that myself. Sometimes love isn’t always kind. I know I don’t always use kind words when I’m angry at my husband. However, she also showed the magic of love in its imperfection. Through Jules and Jake, she showed me that love is happiness and joy. It can also be sad, and it also can be incredibly scary, especially when you give your heart completely to someone else who has the power to nuture it or destroy it. But, love is a gamble that is worth it every single time. Thanks, Kim Karr, for reminding me of that!

Looking forward to getting a book about Jaxson and one about Finn!
