May’s BOTM is a novel of terrible first impressions, hilarious second chances, and the joy of finding your perfect match. Yours Truly is another bestseller from Abby Jimenez.
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 likable 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.
“But remember, you can’t spell disappointment without men,”
I honestly chose this book because of the cover. It’s too cute not to pick up, especially after reading the synopsis how could you not choose this? Romances are either a flop or great for me not many go in between. This romance was amazing from page one all the way to the end. I would recommend this romance to any avid romance reader but particularly the avid Nicholas Sparks readers out there.
“We’re all a little broken, Briana. We are a mosaic. We’re made up of all those we’ve met and all the things we’ve been through. There are parts of us that are colorful and dark and jagged and beautiful. And I love every piece of you. Even the ones you wish didn’t exist.”
Briana and Jacob are relatable characters from the start. Jimenez writes about topics that are not often seen in fiction but are very real-life struggles for many, such as anxiety, divorce, depression, kidney failure, and organ donation. She writes amazingly along with the character development making this book five out of five stars for me.
