Review: It's Always Been You (The Jacksons of Ann Arbor #1) by Elle Wright


The Blurb

They just crossed the line...Newly minted Dr. Lovely "Love" Washington plans to devote her medical career to helping women. But her own happy ending eludes her. Then one morning she wakes up in a Vegas hotel under the sheets with the very familiar and extremely charming Dr. Drake Jackson. The longtime best friends didn't only become overnight lovers. They got married, even if neither remembers tying the knot. And Love is tormented by sizzling memories of the passion-filled night they shared. Matters of the heart have always fascinated Drake. Now the aspiring cardiothoracic surgeon and in-demand playboy must confront his growing feelings for his oldest, most alluring, off-limits friend. Amid a disastrous family reunion and the unwanted attention of Love's persistent ex-boyfriend, the newlyweds are digging themselves deeper into a deception that has to end. Or does it? Has Drake finally found what's been right in front of him all along--the true Love of his life? 

My Review
I loved this book from beginning to end. I met Love in one of Ms. Wright’s previous books and I wanted her to have her own romance. Friends to lovers is my absolute favorite themes and I have read it presented in many different ways, but never in the same way as Love and Drake’s story. They had so much going against them (including themselves). These conflicts made their romance dramatic and propelled the story forward. It also helped that Drake and Love had such an intense chemistry, even though it brought up the question of how come they hadn’t been attracted to each other at that level in the past. Luckily for me Drake answers it, making me sigh with contentment.

I give this book five out of five stethoscope shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from AmazonUK
