Published by Berkley Publishing Group on 2014-07-01
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
From the New York Times bestselling author of Rumor Has It and the Lucky Harbor series comes the story of a woman whose world is turned upside down by one night's torrid fling... Veterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship. Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans...
I have been a Jill Shalvis fan for a long time, specifically her Lucky Harbor series – but I adore everything I’ve read! My TBR pile is normally so long (what book nerd’s pile isn’t??) that I’ve actually avoided picking up her Animal Magnetism series. Until now. I was in a bit of a reading slump when it popped up on Netgalley and I couldn’t help myself! Well, let’s say I’m sucked in and need to go back and read the rest!
I wasn’t necessarily a huge fan of Emily – I’ll be honest. I got annoyed by her “plan” and her stubbornness. But she was the only hiccup in this story for me. (Normally the lead character being less than stellar would be a huge hiccup – but it wasn’t really.) Wyatt is an amazing leading man, and I loved so much about him! His t-shirts were adorable, his swoonworthy factor high, and his following of the Casserole Brigade was fantastic!
But what really made this story? The surrounding characters. Emily’s sister, Sara, and her rant about Emily giving pieces of herself away? I was cheering out loud as I read! And Wyatt’s sisters? They are phenomenal too – especially Darcy! I can’t wait to read more of this series to find out her whole story.
Then Came You was full of laugh out loud moments, swoons and “I just want to smack you!” moments. A one-night-stand turned into an epic love story was done just perfectly! While I adore every Jill Shalvis book I’ve read? I have to say that this book made me fall in love with her writing all over again and I can’t wait to read more!
