I'm not sure I can adequately express just how terrible this cover is. I mean, look at it.

Actually, no, sorry, don't; don't look at it.

I know this is a romance novel--I didn't need the horrible cover to confirm that--but with all the awkward photo-shopping going on with this one, it's particularly bad.

Thankfully, Jill Shalvis's novels are most definitely not bad. I haven't picked up her Animal Magnetism Series, mostly because I'm a bit of an anti-animal person myself (I'm scared of dogs and c

I really love the way this author write her characters. I can't help but like them, they never fail to be good honest what you want in a friend types. She ups that by adding animals, animal rescue, animal search and rescue, Veterinarians. Did I mention cute animals ? Adorable ones.

LOVED this one! Smart move, Jill Shalvis, really smart move. How am I suppose to resist hot badass alpha males rescuing animals?

And this was so much fun... The food brigade, lol!

Hope this is not the last one in the series!

Oh, boy. I loved this book! I only discovered the wonder that is Jill Shalvis a few weeks ago, because I have apparently been living under a big stupid rock or something. I read Simply Irresistible and fell in love! I knew I'd found something special, and apparently thousands of other people had found her first!

So as soon as I saw Then Came You on NetGalley I requested that puppy as fast as my finger would click! When I got the e-mail saying I'd been approved, I actually shouted "

What a cute story! I enjoy most anything this author writes, but I don't get to read as many of her novels as I would like with my review schedule. However, I'm hoping to feature the author on my blog in the near future, so I used that as an excuse to check out some titles I have missed. This one was miraculously available on the Overdrive app, so I quickly snatched it up. Now, I see why it was so popular.

Look out Lucky Harbor, this series is coming to take your belt for the contemporary romance series champion. Emily is a newly graduated veterinarian, who has been granted an internship in Sunshine, Idaho. She likes things planned out and is counting the days until she can go back to L.A. She let herself lose control once at a veterinarian conference and had a one night stand with a hot guy. I'll give you three guesses as to what happens next and the first two don't count.

An amazingly awesome book. I loved, loved, loved it. One of Jill's sexiest, imo, and so funny, but with a lot of emotion, too. She surprised me a few times, made me growl and laugh and smile. :-) Good stuff! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance.
Katie McGarry is my favorite YA author.
And Jill Shalvis is my fave contemporary romance author.

It's so wonderful to read books I love!

This was one of those books that could have been elevated to the next level with a bit more fleshing out of the characters (specifically the heroine). This series is one of my favorites from Shalvis but I found myself more interested in the scenes where we got to revisit Dell and Jade. Shalvis's continuing use of the term "beat" instead of "moment" "second" or "instant" is a bit jarring. Everything is "as hell" (sexy as hell, cute as hell). Others have mentioned cookie-cutter, and I worry that w ...more

No surprises here you guys – if you’re a fan of Jill Shalvis then you’re going to want to read this book.

Shalvis consistently writes romance that isn’t too angsty or heavy and has the perfect amount of sweet and sexy... and Then Came You fits perfectly. While I’m a diehard fan of her Lucky Harbor series, her Animal Magnetism series is a close second on my list. In book 4, we meet Emily.

Please, no matter what you do, stay true to your funny, hilarious, sweet, entertaining writing style.

One thing you can always count on in a Jill Shalvis novel, lots of love and caring: that's just for the animals.

When Emily Stevens arrives at the Belle Haven clinic in Sunshine, Idaho, she is interested in one thing only - finishing her year-long veterinary internship and moving back to Los Angeles. Little does she know that the best laid plans are often sent awry when she meets her new supervisor, Wyatt Stone - the one-night stand she never thought to see again...

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If there’s a Jill Shalvis book I can read early, you can bet I won’t miss it. She is an author I can return to again and again, knowing that she’ll put a smile on my face and give me all the warm fuzzies. Her romances are always what I’m looking for and need: heartwarming, funny, endearing, and sexy. There is nothing quite like a guaranteed happy ending, and Jill Shalvis writes some of the b

This is Wyatt and Emily's story. Emily is an intern who finds out that the vet at the clinic she's interning at is her first one night stand she was hoping to never see again. Turns out, though he doesn't fit in her grand plan for her life, he is exactly what she needs.

While this was not my favorite in the series so far, Jill Shalvis constantly comes through with just the right amount of yummy, funny and heart to ensure you will enjoy the ride. Emily and Wyatt had a lot of heat, considering Emi

Things get a little awkward when Veterinary intern, Emily winds up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho and has to work under the sexy man she once had a one night stand with. It seems that Wyatt remembers the night well because, he too feels the heat crawling up the back of his neck when he realizes that it is indeed her.

Who doesn’t love a hottie in glasses that is good with animals and even better with people. That is until it comes to the people he wants in his life. Wyatt’s biggest weakness is his fear of not letting people have their own choices when in reality telling so

I enjoy Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor so much but I never really try her others. Well, I tried the first book in THIS series and didn't like it much. However, I was still in the contemporary romance mood, and I thought why not pick up a latest one, hopefully it was better from the first book.

Well, on one hand, I adored the animal scenes. I swear, Ms. Shalvis writes great animals scene. With Emily and Wyatt both working at Belle Haven, dealing with animals, there were plenty of them to make

Finished this book at 4:00 this morning. What's better than sleep? A Jill Shalvis book! I loved this story (not that I don't love all of her books). I loved the reality of the relationship that neither Wyatt or Emily would say what they really wanted out of the relationship either out of fear or assuming what the other one wanted. I loved that Ms. Shalvis didn't make the sisters on either side so sugary sweet. They were real and ornery and outspoken. I did shed some tears and I did laugh out lou ...more

Julie: Then Came You is the fifth book in Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series. I am a late comer to this series, having started with the last book, Rumor Has It. Anne loved that book so much I knew I just had to read it. And after reading it I can see why it enchanted her the way it did. I may not have adored it as much as she did but it did draw me in enough to want to continue with the series and to one day go back and read from it the beginning. In

Well I love the Animal Magnetism books, but this one was a little painful for me. 😉

I don’t mind back and forth to a degree, but Emily takes the cake. I get the whole “I’ve got a plan” thing...yet when you have feelings for someone at some point you need to own it.

Wyatt was perfection.

Emily and Wyatt have fantastic chemistry and I did love them together.

If the denial was a smaller portion of the book this one would have been a much more enjoyable read.

What happens in Reno doesn't necessarily stay in Reno. Emily is a recent vet school graduate who is set to be an intern with a practice in Sunshine, Idaho. It isn't the internship she wanted, as she had also applied for one in LA, which was closer to her father. But she'll do the job required to fulfill her vet school scholarship, even if it means a year in the middle of nowhere.

Then Came You is the fifth book in Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series and the second book of hers that I’ve read. So why did I skip ahead to book five? I’ve been seeing other readers raving about how this was their favorite installment in the series so far. Even though I’m not one to read series out-of-order, I figured I could jump into Then Came You with no problems. And I was right! It read great as a stand alone.

Emily Stevens is never without a plan. That is to work as a vet in L.A. and to win over her study partner, John. But in order to make her vet dreams come true, she must complete a year internship in Sunshine, Idaho, even if it means deviating from her plan. What she didn't expect in this new change of plan was seeing her one-night stand from Reno in the form of her supervisor, Dr. Wyatt Stone.
