From the New York Times bestselling author of Rumor Has Itand the Lucky Harbor series comes the story of a woman whose world is turned upside down by one night's torrid fling...

Veterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship.

Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans...


My Thoughts:  After reading my first Jill Shalvis book, which happened to be one from her Animal Magnetism Series, I was hooked.  I loved her writing, her humor, the way she makes her characters be so personable and real.  Needless to say, I was so excited to be able to read Then Came You, her latest release in the Animal Magnetism Series, and I absolutely loved it.  Each book is a companion novel and can be read as a standalone, something else I really love.  

We met Wyatt Stone in the previous novels, and I must say that he has quickly become one of my favorite male leads thus far.  Emily has graduated veterinarian school and finds herself doing an internship in beautiful Sunshine Idaho.  The only problem is that Sunshine Idaho isn't were she wanted to be.  She wanted to be in sunny California.  She has a plan for her life all mapped out and this isn't on it, so she is counting down the days until her year is up and she can get back to LA.  Wyatt is a vet at the Belle Haven Veterinary Clinic and also happens to wind up being Emily's supervisor for the next year.  They have a rather awkward moment when Emily arrives as they both recognize the other from their hot, steamy, and oh so memorable one-night-stand while at a conference in Reno.  That moment morphs into quite a hot one, which gets more awkward before it is over with, and very humorous.  Before everything is said and done, both Wyatt and Emily will have to decide what they mean to each other, and what they are willing to do for love.

I loved Emily's character and was able to connect with her immediately.  She is funny, driven, caring, and simply a wonderful person who has had a really hard go of it, but just keeps on keeping on.  Wyatt is hot, sexy, and just to die for.  He's been burned in a recent relationship, so he struggles with commitment.  He is also an Alpha male all the way around, which he demonstrates on more than one encounter.  I loved watching their relationship develop and I loved the combination of steamy romance mixed with humor that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.  The story itself was captivating and I thoroughly enjoyed every page from beginning to end.  It was absolutely delightful

If you haven't read a Jill Shalvis book yet, then pick this one up.  You will fall in love with both the book and with her, and I can guarantee you will want more from this author.  She's fabulous.  If you are a contemporary romance fan, Then Came You will leave you completely sated in every area with a smile on your face and on your heart.  Check it out.

“Look,” she said, “apparently you bring out my inner slut. I’m not going to thank you for that.”
Wyatt smiled that sexy smile of his. “I could make you.”
She pointed a finger at his nose. And then lowered it so it was pointed at another part of his anatomy entirely. “Don’t even think about it.”
“Oh, I won’t,” he said silkily. “But you will.”
And she knew he was right.” 



At lunch, she sneaked out the back door for a breath of air that didn't include the delicious scent of Wyatt.  The day was bright, the sun warm, and she texted Sara almost blindly:  he's got two-day scruff and is wearing army cargoes, and I want to eat him up with a spoon.  Tell me no.
