Description



Book Synopsis



A novel of terrible first impressions, hilarious second chances, and the joy in finding your perfect match from "a true talent" (Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author).

Dr. Briana Ortiz's life is seriously flatlining. Her divorce is just about finalized, her brother's running out of time to find a kidney donor, and that promotion she wants? Oh, that's probably going to the new man-doctor who's already registering eighty-friggin'-seven on Briana's "pain in my ass" scale. But just when all systems are set to hate, Dr. Jacob Maddox completely flips the game . . . by sending Briana a letter.

And it's a really good letter. Like the kind that proves that Jacob isn't actually Satan. Worse, he might be this fantastically funny and subversively likeable guy who's terrible at first impressions. Because suddenly he and Bri are exchanging letters, sharing lunch dates in her "sob closet," and discussing the merits of freakishly tiny horses. But when Jacob decides to give Briana the best gift imaginable--a kidney for her brother--she wonders just how she can resist this quietly sexy new doctor . . . especially when he calls in a favor she can't refuse.

"Abby Jimenez's words...sprinkle humor and warmth all over my life." -Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

Overall a good read. I just finished reading “Just For The Summer,” & it’s also a 4 star book for me. I like Abby as an author but when I compare her books to others I’ve read they’re not my absolute favorite.

Took me a while I took breaks in between so that’s why I gave it 4 instead of 5 because usually I don’t want to put the book down but I still enjoyed the read!

An emotional story about two people who have been hurt in their past relationships & are now learning to love again. It also touches on anxiety, trauma, & kidney failure. I loved Briana & Jacob! As someone who struggles with extreme social anxiety, I related to Jacob so much. The author depicted the mental health aspects in this book so well, this is one of the best representations of social anxiety I've ever read! When Jacob would go into a spiral of overthinking, as someone who struggles every second of every day- I felt that to my core! Jacob was the sweetest, shyest, most awkward, & anxiety-ridden golden retriever hero. Everything he did for Briana was so swoon-worthy. Protect him at all costs. The 1st 3/4 of the book was AMAZING, & the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the miscommunication really drug on & got a little repetitive! But overall it was a good rom-com that literally had me laughing out loud at times, & swooning until I melted into a puddle! I loved it & Jacob's family!

Yours Truly is nothing short of a masterpiece. It’s emotional, intense, sweet, and wonderful. At times, would it have helped if Jacob and Briana just talked to each other instead of making assumptions? Yes. Was I totally fine with them not doing so because it prolonged the story that I wasn’t ready to end? YES. I’d absolutely give it more than 5 stars if that were possible.

LOVED this! I haven’t read a good romance in some time and this one made me truly laugh out loud in certain places. Such a great beach read, plane read, train read - whatever! I highly recommend.

Overall I liked this book. I would say 3.5 out of 5. I just wasn’t obsessed with it. I didn’t really get into it until 3 quarters of the way through it.

Abby has done it again! She made me laugh, cry, and even both at the same time. If you like “Part of Your World”, you will love “Yours Truly”. Dr. Briana Ortiz’s life is in shambles. Her divorce is about to be finalized, her brother needs a kidney, and the Chief of Emergency Medicine job she was so sure of getting might be given to the new doctor, Dr. Jacob Maddox. Dr. Jacob Maddox’s life isn’t any better – his ex-girlfriend is marrying his brother, all his patients have died on his first day, and all the nurses hate him, including Briana. After an encounter in the sob closet and a letter, Briana sees that Jacob really isn’t that bad. When Jacob’s kidney is a perfect match for her brother, Briana is more than willing to return the favor. The two build their relationship by helping each other through Jacob’s crippling anxiety and Briana’s trust issues to create a mosaic (as Jacob explained). This book reminded me of a cross between “The Hating Game” and “The Spanish Love Deception” but with its own flair. It touches on some important topics like mental health and anxiety without stigmatizing it. While reading the book, I did become a little frustrated with Jacob and Briana’s communication problems, but I reminded myself on how I communicate when I’m anxious and it made me realize that Abby hit it on the nail. I loved that Alexis and Daniel as well as the town of Wakan (Kevin Bacon, too) was included from “Part of Your World”. I truly did not want the book to end. “Yours Truly” is a must read for anyone that loves contemporary romance and I will be recommending this to all my friends and fellow book lovers. Thank you to #NetGalley, #AbbyJimenez, #Forever(GrandCentralPublishing) for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I absolutely adore her books and this one doesn't disappoint! Abby has such a way of developing her characters. It's like an instant connection and I can't wait to watch the story unfold. There are so many sweet moments in this book, but also so many hilarious, laugh out loud moments. Oh Jacob, just wait till y'all meet Jacob! ❤️He's my fave! As with all of her books, I consider this a must read. 4.5 stars

Read A Book With McCall - 1 year ago
THOUGHTS: Abby Jimenez has quickly become an auto buy author for me. Her rom coms always hit the mark with their witty banter, charming characters, swoon worthy men, and a dose of reality. I was so excited to receive a copy of this ARC from Netgalley and it did not disappoint. I’m personally not a huge fan of the fake dating trope or miscommunication, but in this case the characters made up for that. • Jacob is the sweetest most intuitive man, and Bri is refreshingly down to earth. I loved the dynamic and banter between these two. I also love hearing the references to other characters from past books. I really enjoyed this one. I already pre ordered my hard copy. Thank you to Netgalley and Grand Central Publishing for the chance to review this book early in exchange for an honest review. • READ IF YOU: -Have always wanted a pen pal -Create safe words/phrases to leave events early because your anxiety is too high. -Have a nosy/overly involved family -Have a pet parrot who curses. • Yours Truly is out today.
