By: Rachel Gibson
Releasing August 26th, 2014

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns to Truly, Idaho, and to the fate of sexy SEAL Blake Junger


Ex-high school cheerleader Natalie Cooper could once shake her pom-poms with the best of them. But she's paid for all that popularity—her husband's run off with what's left of their money and a twenty-year-old bimbo named Tiffany. Leaving Natalie to manage a photo store and having to see some pictures she, well, really shouldn't.


Then she comes toe-to-manly chest with Blake Junger. Exiled to a remote cabin in Truly, Idaho, Blake wants nothing to do with anyone. Instead, he's determined to struggle with his demons and win—all on his own. But the last thing he needs is Natalie distracting him with her luscious curves and breaking down the barriers of his heart.

Can be read as a standalone. Returns to Truly, ID and is about the second Junger twin, Blake Junger.

My Thoughts:

Honestly, I did like What I Love About You. I truly thought it was a cute book. Yes, there were somethings people might find offensive. For instance at the beginning of the story when Blake meets his neighbor and daughter he's an a-hole. You know what that could happen in life. Not everyone is a happy drunk or happy when they are stone sober and fighting the urge to drink. So, of course he's not going to come off as Mary Sunshine and he's definitely going to leave a horrible first impression. Yes, he did get off the wrong foot when he met Natalie Cooper. Oh well, it happens. Anyway, they have to come to a mutual agreement after all they are sharing a puppy together. Let me tell you, Sparky is a funny dog and not the brightest. 

So, Blake is a recovering alcoholic who is fighting the urge on his own. He's not a pleasant person at times. He might also think about sleeping with his neighbor a little too much even though he should avoid her like the plague, after all she a forever type of girl. He's dealing with his own personal demons. 

Natalie is a single mom basically trying to make it day to day. After he husband embezzled some funds and decided to leave with his girlfriend while his wife was pregnant. Yeah, Natalie's ex sounds like a real winner, especially now that he's in prison. Her friend Lilah tries to live on the wild side ever now again, but her focus is on her daughter. 

What I like about What I Love About You, is you have two unlikely people getting together. In a way they are trying to balance their relationship. Of course, you have someone realizing one is in love before the other, and yes it freaks the other out. However, it's a light fun and pretty easy read. This is one of those stories thats not going to stress anyone out. Yeah, you kind of feel bad for Natalie at the beginning of the story cause of what she has to pick up her life from. You might get the impression that Blake is kind of a horn dog cause he thinks of sex with Natalie all the time and he's a bit rough around the edges. Yet he starts to smooth them out. So yes, I thought it was fun. Overall, I enjoyed What I Love About You. So, if this sounds like something you might enjoy try it.
