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.
Juliette & Jake….what an amazing couple to start 2018 off with. The wedding planner and the doctor. Sweet and sassy meets arrogant and sexy. Their first encounter is epic and will leave you laughing to the point of tears. Poor Juliette was mortified but kept herself together. I couldn’t get a good feel on Jake at first….to be honest I really didn’t like him. Jules says it best…
Bleeding heart my ass. He wasn’t patient, nor was he kind. What he was, however, was the prince of darkness. An arrogant ass I wanted nothing to do with.
I was REALLY glad that didn’t last long. The easy way the two of them come to interact with each other was genuine and special. What began as distaste for one another quickly shifted to something else, seeing each other in a new light.
Then again, she wasn’t like anyone I had known. Sassy, but sweet. Funny, but a smart-ass. Tough, but weak. She was such a contradiction.
They were building something without trying and denying it all the while. Juliette is surrounded by romance in her business and Jake is surrounded by devastation in his. Yet they complete each other.
I wondered if this was all a big mistake because I couldn’t wait to see her again. And that was so unlike me. So very unlike me.
I fell in love with their story, how they connected and shared their pasts. I cried….ugly tears because I felt their connection and could understand their stories. I couldn’t read fast enough to get to the end, I needed to see how it would all pan out.
I couldn’t recall a time any woman had sent a shiver racing down my spine.
Jake…you do the same for us!!!
