Summary: 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.-The StoryGraph

What I Liked: Abby Jimenez has a superpower…and that power is creating swoon worthy men that somehow seem realistic while also being completely unrealistic. Jacob is a cinnamon roll hero that you just want to wrap up in your arms and give a big hug. His personal journey in this book was wonderful and I liked that he realized he had to work on himself before he could be a loving partner to Briana. And the patience and understanding that Briana shows him was fantastic. Jimenez also has a knack for writing stories that buck most romance trends. Case in point, this book, which is a romance set against the backdrop of organ transplantation and uses old-school letter writing as a plot device.  I normally hate when things in a story would be resolved if the characters just spoke to each other but it made sense in this book.  The misunderstandings were believable and made sense to the overall story. 

What I Didn’t Like: Despite loving this story, I hated the third act “breakup” and felt it was rushed and came out of nowhere. This was my only issue. 

Who Should Read It: Romance fans looking for a unique story with likable characters will like this one. 

Review Wrap Up: This is another hit for Jimenez who continues to write fun and thoughtful romances featuring unique story lines and likable characters.  I fell in love with Jacob and Briana and think you will too.
