The advance copy I read of this book is my first book by this author, and I found it to be masterfully crafted, with thought, care, insight, and attention to detail—poetic prose that touch the heart and echo on the soul, full of deep emotion, abundant in pain and loss and, best of all, overflowing in joy and love. Nate and Lauren are both characters I immediately fell in love with. Nate’s being mired and stuck in the grief and loss from his past immediately resonates, as does his instinctual stuffing the feelings away in a box and burying them deep. Lauren’s free spirit and altruistic need to save the world and fix everyone both attract Nate and scare him silly. I thought Lauren was a bit naïve at first, but circumstances beyond her control shake her to her foundation, causing her to reevaluate her beliefs and gain a more mature perspective. I found the relationship between the two fascinating. A lot of push and pull, but both characters learn and grow and find a way to be what the other needs without compromising their own progress.
This book has a bit of everything – the pain and grief of loss, the willingness to change and grow, realistic life events that demand reexamining core beliefs and protective mechanisms, and deep, abiding love. Nate’s big family is warm and welcoming and painted in such a way that the reader feels like a peripheral part of the family, and Lauren’s family is equally endearing. I like the fact that the first book in the series is parallel to this one – Nate’s brother Zach’s romance with Ashley happens in the same time frame as Nate and Lauren’s, and now I want to read that book, as well. And I hope the other brother, Josh, will have his own book soon. I really enjoyed “My Sexy Veterinarian,” full of heart, sweet sensuality, spunk and courage.
Great book! My first Bonnie Phelps but NOT my last! It's part of a series, The Texas Kincaids, a large, loving, devoted, boisterous family, full of moms, dads, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins. Very well written with friendly, funny, delightful characters and wonderfully descriptive details about their lives and surroundings. I'm very excited that there is a whole series about this captivating family.
This book is about Nate and Lauren. He is a veterinarian and she is a counselor. He is all about structure, order and control (not in a bad way) and she is a free spirit that thrives on spontaneity. Nate is struggling to come to terms with the death of his beloved fiancé and Lauren, sensing his struggle, wants to help him. But Nate doesn't want help and his family, especially his mother, is pushing him to move on and resume dating. His telling them he isn't ready seems to fall on deaf ears.
When Nate meets Lauren, he is instantly attracted to her and kinda wants to pursue it but he also sees her as an opportunity to get his family (mom) off his back.
Lauren is very attracted to Nate as well and is all for pursuit, so when he asks her to pretend to date him to throw off his family, she is disappointed but agrees to go along with it, hoping to help him in the process.
Pretending to date a woman you are intensely attracted to to fool your family, what could possibly go wrong? Could Nate decide he wants more than pretend?
A few issues made me put it at 4 stars. The similes overflowed the pages like a raging river in a monsoon; in other words, enough to drown a reader. Inconsistent timeline; depending on the reference, Sharon was diagnosed 36 or 24 months ago, died either 36, 30, 28, or 18 months ago, and they were supposed to get married either 26 or 17 months ago. There was quite a lot of missing punctuation, maybe not an issue for most but a pet peeve of mine. Nate held many sexist beliefs which he called “traditional.” While Lauren thought he didn’t really think that way, she wasn’t sure, and other than Nate trying couples yoga (“yoga is for girls”), he didn’t seem to show any change of those beliefs.
The h is a therapist and wants to help H who is still suffering from losing his fiancé, so I expected some drama. There was a ton of emphasis placed on therapy and grief throughout the entire book, making *a whole lot* of heavy drama, and not all in a good way. It often felt much like a self-help book and not nearly enough like a romance.
Overall, still an enjoyable book.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
