Jill Shalvis ROCKS! Then Came You and her Animal Magnetism series are must-reads for any season. It’s always a happy day in my house when there is a new Jill Shalvis book to be read, but it’s a huge celebration when there is a new series to be enjoyed. Really. It. Is. Earlier this month I saw that Jill had a new title, Then Came You. I snapped it up! Yes, she’s one of my must-buy authors and after my mini-celebration, I settled back to begin reading. But then I realized that this was book five in her Animal Magnetism series and I hadn’t read the previous four titles. Oh my, now I was celebrating big-time. I know that Then Came You could be a stand-alone title, but why wouldn’t I want to read the four preceding stories and get the scoop on all the characters from Sunshine, Idaho. It’s Jill Shalvis. Small town romance. Humor to keep you laughing-out-loud for hours. Stories that center around animals, hunky vets, their family and friends. The question is not why would I read the four earlier titles, but why hadn’t I before! That situation was quickly remedied in one weekend. I flew through books one to four. Fell in love with a pet duck (Animal Magnetism). Emphasized with Jade, while rooting for Dell (Animal Attraction). Cried a bit with Holly and Adam (Rescue My Heart). And totally lost my heart to Tommy, Kate’s younger brother, in Rumor Has It. I felt like I had moved to Sunshine, Idaho, by the time I began reading book five, Then Came You. I think my golden retriever and four cats would like to visit Drs. Dell and Wyatt. Yes. I. Do. (And I wouldn’t mind seeing them myself!) Then Came You sets up that perfect oops moment when two people who never thought they’d see one another again wind up working together for a year. Yes, what happened in Reno didn’t stay in Reno. (Perhaps the vet conference should have been held in Las Vegas.) Veterinarian intern Emily arrives in Sunshine, Idaho, already out-of-sorts and literally counting the days till her year internship is finished. She had hoped for the more glamorous slot in LA, where she’d be tending star's teacup dogs, instead of getting down-in-the-dirt with livestock at a ranch. Her year only became harder when she realized Wyatt, her new boss, was her hook-up from Reno. They hadn’t exchanged last names. They didn’t intend seeing one another again. But it seems neither one could forget the other. I really enjoyed this story and thought Wyatt was almost perfect. Why? His two sisters had already trained him in most things woman related. Their interactions were wonderful as was Emily’s with her sister. As with Rumor Has It, the families were as central to this story as the main protagonists. Once again I found myself laughing-out-loud with situational humor that Shalvis writes so well. The pages also scorched my Kindle a bit as Emily and Wyatt’s relationship progressed. The Kleenex box came out at the end of the story, as it does quite often with Shalvis. She’s an author who knows how to give her readers an all-encompassing emotional ride, and have them line up eagerly for the next. I highly recommend the Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series and Then Came You. Jill Shalvis ROCKS!

Then Came You is the fifth installment in Jill Shalvis's Animal Magnetism series, and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. In it, we're back at the delightful Belle Haven veterinary clinic, where apparently being outrageously hot, witty and sexy is a prerequisite for all employees. I'm not much of an animal person anymore (due to allergies), but my kids are about to be proud parents of a duck and a chick (stealth FRIENDS reference, FTW!) and let me just say, if we had a clinic like Belle Haven, the duck and chick and I would be visiting on the regular. Anyway. Besides the great setting, Then Came You comes complete with an adorably awkward set-up between lead characters Wyatt and Emily. Imagine you walk in to your first day on the job. Hot vets are everywhere, being all nice and charming and welcoming you into their work-home. You're so ready to begin your career, to put your time in so you can move on to a brighter future in gorgeous Los Angeles. Then it's time to meet the vet with whom you will be working closely over the coming year. Your eyes meet across the crowded room....only to notice that hunky vet is your one-night stand from a convention in Reno. That sound you heard is the record scratch of doom. What happens in Reno is supposed to stay in Reno, right? Or something like that. And this little predicament is what drives Then Came You. Despite the lingering attraction, Wyatt and Emily know they should maintain a strictly professional relationship, keep their distance. That's not so easy when the one person you need to stay away from is the one person who sets your knickers on fire. Never mind the fact that Wyatt has deep-seeded abandonment issues and is living with his two volatile yet hilarious and badass sisters, and that Emily has absolutely no intentions of staying in Sunshine once her year is up. It's a perfectly impossible situation and I loved seeing these two work through the issues that hold them back, towards a future together. It is said the course of true love never runs smoothly. That may be true, but Wyatt and Em's course was awkward and hilarious and flat-out sexy. (this happens to be my favorite course) Then Came You is only the second Jill Shalvis book I've read so far, and I have to say there's something about her style that suits me so well. I think it's that she's nailed the perfect mixture of endearing characters and story that's full of both sexy and humorous moments. If you're looking for feel-good romance with a strong dose of sexy, look no further than Then Came You.

Jill Shalvis continues to entertain and enthrall with her books. Then Came You is about Emily, a vet intern, who had a one-night stand at convention and now finds that he is her new boss. Wyatt is looking for stability and love but Emily has a plan to move back to L.A. in one year. As they get closer they must decide if love can change plans.

This book was a complete joy. I always love reading Jill Shalvis’s books because the character-driven plots are engaging and brilliantly orchestrated. I could not put this book down. Wyatt was a complete dream! He is patient, kind and has a heart of gold. He claims several times that he’s not always good, hinting at a little bad boy attitude, but I never saw or experienced it while reading. Wyatt’s been hurt and the absolute LAST thing he wants to do is invest time in another woman who isn’t interested in sticking around Sunshine, Idaho...but it seems he just can’t resist the charms of his new intern, Emily. Emily drove me crazy through the whole book with her big “plan” to intern at a prestigious Veterinary clinic in L.A. and to date/marry some guy named John she’s not even involved with. Emily doesn’t want to have to struggle financially like her parents did when she and her sister were growing up. That’s understandable, but I just wanted to shake her every time she threw her plan up in Wyatt’s face but then turn around and initiate their sexual encounters. But, you know what they say about the best laid plans…Emily never had a chance :) I am not an animal person but I loved reading about the animal aspect of the book. The animal interactions complimented the angst-y scenes giving the story balance and continuity. I also loved being introduced to the citizens of Sunshine and learning about them and their animals. Some stories were full of joy, while a few were full of sorrow. Aside from Emily being a total butthead, I absolutely loved the story. The characters were amazing, the chemistry between Emily and Wyatt was powerful and their passion was explosive! And I cannot tell you how many times I laughed out loud! The dialogue was delightfully witty and had me smiling throughout the story. One of the best book’s I’ve read this year and I’m heartbroken that we have to wait until April 2015 for the next one. Thank you, Ms. Shalvis for this amazing story, it was…enchanting. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

Jill Shalvis is one of my go-to authors when I want to spend some time with wonderful characters that tend to be drawn inexorably together and have chemistry aplenty. The dialogue is never stilted and the male and female characters are always people that you would want to have as friends. Emily, the veterinarian intern, head off to Sunshine, Idaho to work for a year. This internship is not the one she hoped for but she will make do. Wyatt is one of the veterinarians that she will work with – and there are sparks aplenty. Both of them have issues to be dealt with if they are to end up together. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who wants a book filled with witty dialogue, wonderful two and four legged creatures and likes a happy ending.

This was the first I read in the series. The character interactions are real. I will go back and read the other books in the series.

Another amazing story in the Animal Magnetism series.  Emily and Wyatt were perfect for each other.  They  have great chemistry, crazy family members, and a love for animals.  Looking forward to the next book in this  series.

This is the first in the series for me, but I loved it.  I've read a few of Shalvis's books before--mostly in the Lucky Harbor series--and have felt a bit ambivalent about them.  Her writing is usually good but fairly predictable, and not all her characters are equally well-developed.  But this book really worked for me.  I loved Emily and Wyatt independently and together.  Their struggles felt real, their backgrounds were interesting and logically played out, and their relationship developed well.  While I picked the title up on sale, I'm willing to go back and pay more for earlier titles in the series now that I know Shalvis's writing is more nuanced in this series. I like the mix of romance--hot, but not over the top--and humor.  And I respect that there's real character development here that makes this plot work.
