Publisher's Summary

Veterinary intern Emily can't believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of in a Los Angeles clinic like 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.

Best book in the series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Jill Shalvis really shined in this one. Usually as a series goes along things start to go downhill but I really think this is the exception to the rule. Great story. Really well done.

What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

As always she was great. Flawless performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's hard to say without giving away important parts of the book and nobody likes spoilers but I will say yes, I was surprised when she left. I expected her to stay.

A- overall rating...

My Review:
Overall.... 4.25
Performance... 4.75
Story.... 4.0

I love this series for the combination of Jill Shalvis' amazing contemporary romance set in a animal oriented setting. It just makes for incredible reading. I don't usually listen to her books on audio, but my reading time has been taken lately with the books I have to review so I've gotten where I add the books I'm dying to read onto my audio pile. And her writing was just as good in audio...thanks to the incredible narration of Karen White. Wow...she's an awesome narrator. This book has a HUGE cast of characters and not once did any of them sound even similar. Her voice repertoire must be massive. Truly, she was excellent and I will search out more narrated books by her in the future.

But back to the story. Sweet, fun, so incredibly sexy...yep, this was definitely a Jill Shalvis novel. She just does not make a mis-step. I loved both Emily and Wyatt and their out-spoken, don't-mind-their-own-business siblings who simply don't want to see either of them hurt again. Because with the set-up with these two, someone...probably two someone's...going to get hurt. Emily is only in Sunshine for a year internship. She's an LA girl. Never planned to leave and she sure didn't want to go to Idaho. But that was her only choice. So when she arrives, she's already counting down her 365 day sentence.

But what she doesn't count on in Idaho is Wyatt, her one night stand...really freaking hot, knocked her socks off...one night stand who she thought she'd never see again. Oh, and yeah...now he's her supervisor since she has to shadow him in the vet clinic everyday. And Wyatt...he's oh-so-yummy and alpha and sexy and did I mention yummy? Yeah, Jill Shalvis knows how to write her heroes. So sexy!!

It's a great book, an easy, entertaining read, and there's even a bit of suspense and danger toward the end...LOVE that.

The book is by Jill Shalvis...so honestly...enough said. Read her. She writes consistently good contemporary romance, heroes that will melt your heart, and heroines that are so easily relatable that you can't help but feel empathy for them. Her books are phenomenal...and this one was, too.

"Lip Gloss Same Thing as Courage"

What did you love best about Then Came You?

If you buy just 1 book in this series, get this one. Best of the best. This is a funny, romance. Nothing heavy or dark, just great dialogue that can make a power walk fun. You must be in the mood to be entertained with good humor or you will miss it or NOT get it.
J.S. has taken time to write this book, and made sure all the elements in writing a good solid core romance is in this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wyatt our hero. Gads, J.S. made him as hunky, sexy, and as sweet as can be. To have all three traits in a character takes great writing skills. I thought Rumor Has It was my fave, but "holy cow", this books lights you up at the first paragraph. Again, you have to be listening for the humor, you can not be multi tasking, or you will miss it. I had to re start this book 3 times and realized, go for a walk and really get to enjoy this listen.

What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

I buy just about anything Ms White reads in a romance. Julie James series got me hooked on K.W. then I purchased all of this series too. Her male voices are just yummy and she makes them as hunky as these romance writers want them to be.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

yes to both. this series is a good core romance read= leaves you feeling good and light hearted. Yes, you do realize there is a life lesson, but it does not come in the form of "darkness and then the light".

Any additional comments?

Enjoy and have some fun!

Lighthearted.

This is book 5 in the ANIMAL MAGNETISM series of standalone novels connected to an Idaho veterinary practice. This is my first ever novel by this author and I think this a series you can read in any order and you won’t be lost.

I loved the protagonists who were wholly likeable and had a great chemistry and banter I enjoyed. Their siblings were fun too and provided lighthearted entertainment as well as serious moments. The only downside for me was that both main characters were stubborn and took too long to wake up to themselves for my liking. The wait was a little agony.

The community of secondary characters, some of whom appear as primary characters in other novels of the series, are easy to keep track of because the writer is skilled at supplying the reader information without force-feeding. So this novel was a very enjoyable experience from the perspective of getting to know and love a whole community.

Karen White did a great job as the sole narrator performing all the characters plus animal sounds. I was impressed by her performance.

I enjoyed this story a lot. I am checking out another book in this series as soon as possible.

Nice story, elevated by narrator

Really cute, romantic story, a little angsty, but never slow or over the top. But Karen White really sold it with the narration. I have all of another author’s books, all of which are narrated by Ms. White, and I’ve listened to them multiple times, each one was enhanced by the narration (I had read them all before I subscribed to Audible). And the story was definetly good enough for me to order the next in the series.

Sometimes You Just Don't Click with a Character

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I struggle with the story. I love Jill Shalvis's books, but Emily in the story made me want to beat her upside her head majority of the story. She was a hard character like, because she put an expiration date on the fun between her and Wyatt. I did adore Wyatt. So, it was a toss up on was it worth my time. However, it did give a glimpse on what is to come with Wyatt sisters so that's a positive.

If you’ve listened to books by Jill Shalvis before, how does this one compare?

Same quality like the other stories, but I just couldn't click with Emily. Other than that you get the same feel when you step into the story. You feel like you are there.

Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

Darcy (Wyatt's sister) was my favorite voice in the story, and I can't wait for her story.

Any additional comments?

Overall, not a bad listen. Not my favorite, but still okay. Will I stop listening to Jill's book, no. They are fun. Then Came You had positive moments, but Emily rubbed me the wrong way.

Cute Story, Very Funny

Where does Then Came You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not sure if it's one that I'll go back and listen to again, but it was very amusing and worth the credit!
