4 "It's All About The Plan" Stars
“Life isn’t in the planning, baby. Life’s in the living.”
Then Came You by Jill Shalvis is book five in her Animal Magnetism series. I am a huge fan of this author and reading her books is always like coming home. This time we are back in Sunshine, Idaho revisiting the lovable crew at Belle Haven. This author seems to follow a familiar formula with many of her books; however, it is a formula that works and keeps me engrossed ...more
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 ...more
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.
This book follows a young woman on her internship Veterinarian tour. She is sent to Idaho when she missed her chance to get the Los Angeles Foo Foo clinic. Unhappy with this middle of nowhere place she sets he ...more
Sunshine, Idaho was never part of the plan for vet student Emily Stevens, but school is expensive and when life throw ...more
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 " ...more
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.
Wyatt is pleasa ...more
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!

I really enjoy this author. Her books have gotten a bit cookie cutter, but they are consistent. We know we will have an enjoyable read and sometimes ... sometimes she WOW's us. This wasn't a WOW, but it w ...more
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. She’s on her way to Idaho for her veterinary internship and Sunshine, Idaho is most definitely nothing like th ...more
Dear Mrs. Shalvis. You pierce my soul. I'm half agony, half hope. How can you constantly write novels like this one? Is it possible that you will continue to write like this?
Please, no matter what you do, stay true to your funny, hilarious, sweet, entertaining writing style.
This is the story of Dr. Sexy, aka Vet Doc Wyatt Stone and Emily Stevens, who starts her intership at the vet-clinic in Idaho, Sunshine. The story do ...more
Such a sweet addition to the Animal Magnetism series! Her books are always funny, and perfect to end a reading slump. As pretty much always with Jill Shalvis, I absolutely LOVED the hero. Let's face it, who ...more
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...
This is one of those rare series where the later books are better than the earlier ones. The characters are engaging, the r ...more
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 ...more
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.
Emily winds up in Sunshine, I ...more
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 ...more
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.
In the fifth instalment to the Animal Magnetism series, Jill Shalvis delivers yet another fun and sweet story for readers to devour. There’s something special about Emily and ...more
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
I just have to say that I am SO in love with Jill Shalvis and her books.
Then Came You is book 5 in her Animal Magnetism series and I am so in love with Wyatt.
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 ...more
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 ...more
I really didn't think I'd ever do the Trifecta Books (sounds, cover and title must all …be cute/sexy /etc) challenge. I mean it would really have to be those three things at the same time for me to do it and it's very subjective. So I just went along and did whatever challenges that worked for me when it finally happened, the trifecta book!
I know...I was shocked too!
But it indeed happened. I was very pleasantly su ...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 ...more
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.
Overall I do enjoy this series and typica ...more
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. I know I was missing back stories on the...more
