Embarrassing Moments From Jill Shalvis' THEN CAME YOU

Emily Stevens from Then Came You is a woman who knows what she wants — to finish her veterinary training and build a successful career. But instead of treating pampered poodles at a Los Angeles practice, Emily finds herself in Sunshine, Idaho delivering farm animals (without even getting to change out of her power suit!)

Emily prides herself on her discipline, intelligence, and common sense, yet all of these desert her the moment she gets to Sunshine. In fact, everywhere she turns she finds herself in some seriously awkward situations. Here’s a taste of a few of the cringeworthy scenes Emily stumbles into…


Embarrassment With A Side Of Sexy

Wyatt took another long, careful look at Emily and Wyatt’s mouth went grim.
He could join her club. This was the stuff nightmares were made of. Going to school in your Spiderman pj’s. Giving a public speech naked.
And discovering you’d accidentally slept with your boss.

Embarrassment With A Side of Exaggeration

“Listen, regarding my … boyfriend.” Oh boy. Emily squirmed some more. “The truth is, the relationship is sort of …” Non existent. “Silent.”


“Yeah. Like the K on knight. Actually, to be honest, it’s more of an implied thing.”

Wyatt was looking amused again. “As in made up?”

She sighed.

And he laughed. “You’re a nut.”

Yes. Yes, she was. A complete nut.  “Let’s go back to ignoring each other,” she said a little desperately.  “Can we?”

“Absolutely,” he said.  “I’m good at ignoring nuts.”

She sighed again.

Embarrassment With A Side Of Rejection

“Is it just me?” Emily asked softly into Wyatt’s silence, knowing she shouldn’t.  “I’m the only one struggling here?”

He looked at her for a long moment, but didn’t respond to that either.  Instead, he dropped some cash on the table, stood up, and pulled her with him.

Mr. Professional.

She should appreciate the effort.  She should replicate his effort.  “Where are we going now?”

“Home,” he said, taking her back to his truck, opening her passenger door for her.  “To bed.”

She went still and took assessment of how she felt about this. Her girlie parts were on board.  Standing so close to him between the truck and his big, warm, strong body, she gave in.  “Okay, good.  Maybe just one more time—

“In our own beds,” he said.

“Oh.”  She blew out a breath.  Nodded.  “I knew that.”

Veterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship.

Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans...
