G. Bianco, 2019
Ok I need to tell you guys all about Yours Truly which is out today, because it might be one o f my favorite reads of the year so far. This Abby Jimenez novel (which is a spin-off of her previous novel Part of Your World but works as a standalone too!) shows that sometimes things aren’t always as they first seem.
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.
I honestly forgot how much I loved Abby Jimenez’s writing until I read this book! Not only was this just an overall amazing romance that had me binge-reading it until 1am, but the mental health rep and ways in which health and illness was shown in this book made the story that much more meaningful!
Not only is this fake dating workplace romance so fun to read, but both main characters were amazing and having the dual POV really helped me feel connected to Briana and Jacob and understand their pasts and present feelings.
I honestly found myself crying at the most random times because this book was just so beautifully written! Between the letter-writing, the pining, and the slow burn romance made this book so phenomenal!
If you’re looking for a touching romance that shows a lot of character growth, then I highly recommend this book (or honestly anything by Abby Jimenez because all of her books are fabulous)!
