Staff Reviews

Love after heartbreak? Amazing mental health rep? Funny and adorable? Yes please! Briana & Jacob have different reasons for feeling “broken” but through their jobs, they find themselves drawn together & slowly learn that broken isn’t the same as unfixable. Starting with faking dating to save face, quickly turns into two people falling madly in love while assuming the other has no feelings. Naturally they are wrong. A delightful read from the very beginning that had me sobbing by the end.

He has a three-legged dog named Lieutenant Dan, a plant room in his home, and journals using his fountain pen. In short, he's perfect and deserves every good in life. She covered her ex-husbands home in gallons of glitter-including the ceiling fan blades-when she learned of his affair. In short, she's goals and deserving of a sweet cinnamon roll. I'm also a softie for a good epistolary romance.

A novel of terrible first impressions, hilarious second chances, and the joy in finding your perfect match from "a true talent" (Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author).

Dr. Briana Ortiz’s life is seriously flatlining. Her divorce is just about finalized, her brother’s running out of time to find a kidney donor, and that promotion she wants? Oh, that’s probably going to the new man-doctor who’s already registering eighty-friggin’-seven on Briana’s “pain in my ass” scale. But just when all systems are set to hate, Dr. Jacob Maddox completely flips the game . . . by sending Briana a letter.

And it’s a really good letter. Like the kind that proves that Jacob isn’t actually Satan. Worse, he might be this fantastically funny and subversively likeable guy who’s terrible at first impressions. Because suddenly he and Bri are exchanging letters, sharing lunch dates in her “sob closet,” and discussing the merits of freakishly tiny horses. But when Jacob decides to give Briana the best gift imaginable—a kidney for her brother—she wonders just how she can resist this quietly sexy new doctor . . . especially when he calls in a favor she can’t refuse.
