Loved it….scream it out loud again…Loved it! This book had me from the get go. I was enthralled by the characters, by their story and oh yes that delicious angst. It had everything I could have asked for, and even had a little unexpected twist that made it even more delightful. You can stop reading now, just buy this book.
You are still reading? OK well here is the synopsis.
Dr. Hope Finlay is your typical uber-smart loner. She’s all work, very little play. She grew up in foster care after the loss of her mother to cancer. This tragedy and therefore background has caused her to keep everyone at arm’s length. Relationships are not her strong point. What she is, is a gifted emergency room physician.
Our other main character is Laleh Samadi. Laleh is a second generation Persian American, who in her parents’ eyes is an underachiever. Underachiever in the sense she passed on college because her passion was working in her family’s restaurant. Also, she refuses to marry without finding true love. Neither of her parents can understand Laleh’s actions and they do rib her about it, but overall they are a loving bunch.
So a heart condition brings these two characters together and a little mishap intertwines them into a roller-coaster ride of emotions. I won’t ruin it with too many details. These two lives become intertwined and it is funny, witty and straight up sexy. Hope and Laleh have banter too, which I am a huge sucker for dialogue, so this made my heart sing. I adore this book. Easily one of the best I have read this year. Jae is a writer that you can always count on to deliver a fantastic book and you always come away with a little more knowledge.
