Brianna’s life is a mess. Her divorce will be final in two weeks, her brother Benny has sunk into a deep depression with the start of dialysis, her best friend got married and moved away, and a new guy at work is her competition at the hospital where she works. Jacob’s first day at his new hospital is the worst when seven patients die on his watch and the nurses call him Dr. Death, not to mention that they hate him for some reason! When Brianna and Jacob meet for the first time it’s a disaster; she bumped into him in the hall, breaking his cell phone, and he acted like a jerk when he confronted her about it. When Jacob realizes why she is in a permanent bad mood around him, he writes her a letter! A beautiful letter at that. With his anxiety issues, he is able to communicate much better through written word, and they become pen pals at work. But when he secretly becomes her brother's kidney donor and she pretends to be his girlfriend in front of his family, the lines between real and pretend get blurred. This is a love story of epic proportions!— Christina

A novel of terrible first impressions, hilarious second chances, and the joy in finding your perfect match from "a true talent" (Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author).
Dr. Briana Ortiz’s life is seriously flatlining. Her divorce is just about finalized, her brother’s running out of time to find a kidney donor, and that promotion she wants? Oh, that’s probably going to the new man-doctor who’s already registering eighty-friggin’-seven on Briana’s “pain in my ass” scale. 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. Like the kind that proves that Jacob isn’t actually Satan. Worse, he might be this fantastically funny and subversively likeable 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.
