My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is Wyatt and Emily's story. Emily is an intern who finds out that the vet at the clinic she's interning at is her first one night stand she was hoping to never see again. Turns out, though he doesn't fit in her grand plan for her life, he is exactly what she needs.
While this was not my favorite in the series so far, Jill Shalvis constantly comes through with just the right amount of yummy, funny and heart to ensure you will enjoy the ride. Emily and Wyatt had a lot of heat, considering Emily could not keep her hands off of Wyatt to save her life. Unfortunately, I just didn’t feel the chemistry and the love. Wyatt was a very good guy, but he just never expressed his feelings to Emily and it was difficult as a reader to see exactly why these two were meant to be together. Why was Emily different from Caitlin, who we find out was Wyatt’s recent ex-fiancé who chooses to leave the small town of Sunshine? Does Wyatt fall in and out of love pretty easily? I just wish there was something that stood out to me about these two characters that solidified their reasons to be together. It doesn’t have to exist in every book I suppose. It just felt like an average couple, which we probably all are…but I do like every couple and every story to feel magically special in some way. Ultimately, I liked the story, I liked the characters well enough, and I’ll always read Jill. I just wished for a little bit more zsa zsa zsu!
On a side note, a few personal things I’m a little over: the fact that there’s always someone in this series who has one foot out the door. The references to “good parts” or “lady town”. Not all women refer to those things in the same way, so it sort of takes me out of the story since it’s in almost every book with every heroine.
