Somebody to Love- Six Sentence Bookish Thoughts #73



What Somebody to Love is about:
Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist's assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn't the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn't the only thing that needs a little TLC….

2012 belonged to Jill Shalvis, but 2013 will be the year of Kristan Higgins my friends!!!! Holy moly, have I been living under a rock?? I'm so glad that I checked out two of Kristan's books over the holidays and that I decided to sit down early Sunday morning with this one. I read ALL morning long and if you were able to see my face I'm sure everyone would have been laughing at my expressions!! One minute I'm smiling like a dork, the next I'm crying, and before you know it I'm laughing, sighing, and basically just loving every single minute of this sweet, smart, romantic book!! I so loved Parker and all of her baggage, and James....be still my heart!!

Recommend? YES. YES. YES. If you like funny, sassy, smart characters with a lot of heart and flaws too, then this is an author that you must read. Seriously.

Reason for reading it? Because I've been following Jill Shalvis and Kristan Higgins Man Wars on Facebook and I've been meaning to read one of Kristan's books at some point.

  8. You've done it again - you made me check my library's catalog for Kristan Higgins. They have her - yeah - and now I can get in on all this laughing and sighing too.

  9. I am so excited that you loved Somebody to Love Staci. Kristan Higgins and Jill Shalvis are two of my favourite contemporary authors and I'm always confident that I'll love stories. Two of my favourite of Kristan's novels are Catch of the Day and All I Ever Wanted. I hope you get to read some more of Kristan's backlist.

    Kristan is visiting Australia in March for the RWA Conference which will be about an hour away from where I live so I'm hoping like crazy that I can get to Brisbane to say 'g'day' to Kristan....although more likely I'll just mumble about like a silly fan girl!
