BOOK TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - When I Make You Mine by Rae Daniel


When I Make You Mine
(The Richmond Series #1)

By: Rae Daniel
Publication Date: January 17, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Reeling from a recent break-up, Anne is surprised when she meets Jim, her handsome ER doctor. She’s been burned one too many times before, with the most recent relationship fail happening not even an hour before they meet! Catching her on-again-off-again now definitely-off-again boyfriend with her roommate, in her own living room, was definitely not how she planned on spending her Saturday. She definitely didn’t plan on spending it in the ER either!

It’s not been Anne’s best day, to say the least!

Jim’s been looking for ‘The One’ for what seems like forever. His work hours limit his dating life and any women who come into the ER are either drunk out of their minds or are on enough drugs to make rock stars jealous. Getting involved with a patient is the last thing that he wants or needs.

Until Anne.

Will Jim and Anne get their happy ever after or does Ben, her best guy friend, have intentions of his own?

Sometimes, you have to close your eyes and listen to your heart in order to see the future.

Every so often, I'll be in the mood for a short, sweet, swoon-worthy romance. A book with a great balance between plot lines and sexy times. And oh boy....Rae Daniel's When I Make You Mine checked all those great qualities in her debut novella. 

The story begins with an ultimate betrayal (which is not so surprising with an on-again, off-again boyfriend). Those types of guys usually don't know what they want and girls...if he is hot and cold with you, he is definitely not worth the time. Not only did Anne have a crappy boyfriend, she also felt like crap when she discovered him in an unfortunate position with her roommate. And it all just went downhill from there, when she landed in the ER on the same day. 

But looking on the bright side, she has a chance to come in contact with all the attractive male nurses and doctors, especially Dr. Jim. A hot, sexy, smooth talking doctor. A guy who knows what he wants, gets what he wants, and is also a gentleman about it. What makes it more interesting is how Anne is not put together. She's has greasy hair, unclean clothes, pants with holes, and Jim doesn't really care! All you really need is that connection. Nothing else matters.

SEXY TIMES - One of the most important scenes in all romance novels.

The connection between Jim and Anne is HOT. Who wouldn't want a doctor to make a house call...on his day off?! A doctor, who sneaks a way of giving you his number for "patient-doctor reasons", who also dedicates his time to make sure you are on the road to recovery. Now, he is a keeper! Jim is so funny that the banter between those two is too adorable. With all the smooth gestures and caveman antics, you can tell that Jim is all in. He is just as swoon worthy as any hero who goes after his heroine. When they both get what they want, it's pretty intense. And sometimes you wish you were in Anne's shoes. ;)

SLIGHT POSSESSIVENESS/JEALOUSY - Characteristics of a perfect caveman.

When a guy knows what he wants, he'll get what he wants (and in a not so crazy way). Sometimes you want a guy who is slightly possessive because it shows that he is really into you. What makes this hero different from all other heroes is the how he believes in THE ONE. Now you don't usually hear THAT coming out of a guy's mouth. And when a guy says it...he sounds like a romantic. Who wouldn't love a couple romantic gestures once and a while? :)

Overall, if you're in the mood for a short romance novel with steamy scenes and sweet moments, When I Make You Mine is the perfect book for you. It wasn't absolutely perfect for me but it had the things I need for a quick romance read.
