1) Totally loved this book.  Haven't really read much from this author but I definitely like her writing style. Words and pages just flowed and made it hard to put down. I really liked the MC's Hope and Laleh as well.  
2) Jae consistently gives us good stories, expertly written.
3) A roller coaster of emotion, but a really good read. Laleh & Hope kept me sucked in as their story unfolded.
4) Really a great book. It is a very refreshing read, with a plot that is intriguing, full of interesting details that keep the reader inside the plot. I was pleasantly surprised by how much science, paranormal and history goes arm in arm and fit so well together. I will for sure read again this book, good job!

Dr. Hope Finlay loves her job as an emergency room physician, especially since it allows her only brief encounters with her patients. She learned early in life not to get attached to anyone because it never lasts. Laleh Samadi, a waitress at her aunt’s restaurant, is the exact opposite. She easily connects with people and loves her big, boisterous Persian family, despite their tendency to meddle in her life. When Laleh needs to be rushed to the ER with heart trouble, Hope saves her life. Afterwards, strange things begin to occur: Why does Laleh suddenly know even the most obscure diseases, while Hope is fluent in Farsi? Soon, they can no longer deny that there’s a mysterious connection between them—one that becomes stronger with each passing day. Are they losing their minds…or their hearts?

1) A very good collection. I have liked almost all the sotries and the variety offered made the read even more interesting. Still unsure about why the author come to put this stories together, because there is not a real connection going from one to the other.

A collection of stories ranging from sweet to spicy, about men loving and lusting, struggling and pining. In Breaking the Rules Greg is getting back on his feet after overcoming cancer, and asks his crush to go with him to a photoshoot for moral support—and a chance to act on his feelings. Cherry Bomb is about Carl, the only openly gay member of a frat, and his brothers have played a prank on him by sending him alone to a gay bar with a twist. In Love with Zeus's Son forces Eros to help his best friend learn whether or not he has a soul mate, and learning the answer may well break the heart of the god of love. Love and Cake brings sweet treats and sweet surprises when Rowan agrees to make cupcakes for his sister's engagement party. In Lover's Lane Danny runs afoul of some greasers and is saved by his brother's best friend, who takes him to Lovers Lane to hide—and reveals some intriguing things Danny never expected. Luck of the Irish brings good fortune to Jamie, who is more than happy to spread the joy around—especially to the best friend he's secretly in love with. Nurse Levi has heard it all about being a male nurse, and he has no time for stereotypes and clichés. Not until a hot, cute fireman shows up suffering wounds from saving a kitten, anyway. And in Will You Be the Wolf to My Captain Dee a day of cosplaying his favourite character goes better than Bennett could have ever imagined.

1) This story is good. It was interesting enough to keep my interest and different enough in setting to capture my attention. Some parts seemed not totally necessary plot wise but it never become a real problem. I really enjoyed it.

1) A very wonderful read. I really enjoyed it from start to end. It is quirky and funny and the element of surprise is always behind the corner. I really liked particularly the writing style that put me into the story after a few sentences and left me there till the very end. Well done!
