Friends don’t let friends marry the wrong man. But where, oh where, is Mr. Right?
In high school, Greta Steinburg and her two BFFs made a pact: none of them would get married unless they all approved the man in question. Since then, Greta has had her fair share of romantic ups and downs—but now, after her latest failed relationship, she is done. Greta announces that her days of dating are officially over, and she’s kissed the idea of happily-ever-after goodbye. . .
Of course her friends will hear none of it. Instead, they insist that Greta go out with Jon, the hottest new DJ who just happened to be at her sister’s wedding. To get her friends off her back, Greta proposes that they pretend to date. The only problem is, for every fake date they have—from feeding angry rhinos to crashing a kiddie roller-skating party—Jon wants a real one. Each time they get together, their attraction grows. . .and soon there’s no turning back. Could it be that true love requires a leap of faith—and that Jon is the one Greta’s been waiting for all along?
Kayti McGee's That Thing You Do is a charmingly sexy novel about finding love in the least likely place.
Sometimes you just need THAT book that will pull you out of a never-ending reading slump. You need a book that is charming, sweet, sexy, and lighthearted to chase away all the nonsense that reality has to offer. I’m telling you right now…THIS is that book! I’m very familiar with Kayti McGee’s writing and I have to tell you that she kicked it up a notch with her latest release. THAT THING YOU DO has heart. It has humor. It has the perfect blend of sexy and sweet. Greta and Jon’s story will leave you will such a HUGE SMILE on your face, I guarantee it.
THAT THING YOU DO is the kind of book you can completely lose yourself in. I was entranced by page one, and never let go until the very last page was turned. I wanted to dive into this book, become a part of it, become a part of this group of characters that just made my heart and soul a little lighter. Be warned, the heroine, Greta, will frustrate the hell out of you, but she will also charm the pants off of you, which makes up for the love sabotaging that goes on throughout. And our hero, Jon the famous DJ, well, he was just a pure delight, a breath of fresh air cover to cover. He was determined. He was absolutely sweet and charming with a little naughty mixed in. I fell HARD for him pretty damn fast. He has his work cut out for him with Greta, but to him, she’s worth it, and once the walls start to crumble around her heart, there is NO GOING BACK for either one of them.
I absolutely ADORED this side of Kayti McGee’s writing. I can only hope she ventures on and continues to brighten my days with her fabulous love stories.
