Abby Jimenez, author of Yours Truly

Dr. Briana Ortiz’s divorce is just about finalized, her brother is running out of time to find a kidney donor, and that promotion she wants is probably going to the new man-doctor. 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. Worse, he might be this fantastically funny and subversively likable 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.
