Review: The Husband Lesson, Jeanie London

The Husband Lesson

Karan Reece has no other explanation for this situation. Being assigned to work with her ex-husband, Dr. Charles Steinberg? She really must have offended someone to be forced to spend her days with him. The only good thing she can say is at least this arrangement has an expiration date. 

Funny thing, though, is that working together for a shared cause forces them to look at each other differently. She’s learning a lot about him and his strengths. And those discoveries are causing her to see him in a new way…a very attractive, can’t-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-you way. Seems that life with Charles is a lesson she’s willing to study again!

Review

The Husband Lesson centers on two characters who think things are going pretty well when actually they are going no where but in circles. Karan Reece is all over the place, until a judge slaps her down with some community service to a program co-directed by her ex-husband. Charles Steinberg is floating through life working, fishing, and wondering why he isn’t progressing. That is until his ex-wife shows up to reveal what he’s really been avoiding, and yet waiting on all along. Her.

There is a lot more meat in this story than romance. For example, not only does Karan have to do community service but she has to do a bit of therapy on the side. The sessions are light and short, but she is also assigned “homework.” Journaling. London really takes advantage of this fun, creative way to pull you into the characters point of view. The character spills about her past, present, and future in a rambling sort of way that is highly relatable. I felt as if I were apart of the character’s thought pattern. So there’s not a lot of swooning and butterflies, but the writing is wonderful!

My favorite thing about this book is how clever the setting and plot is. It opened up a multitude of conflict for London to play with, and she definitely does that. Other than a little too much detail in a couple of spots, I found myself laughing out loud, and pretty lost in the world of Karan Reese.

  1. I do love the Superromance line. Loved your review.

  2. This sounds like one I may need to pick up. *sigh* My brand new ereader is already bulging at its little seams.

  3. Ha. I bet it is. Mine ereader is always full of stuff. My TBR pile is out of control, a lot of which is already bought and not read yet.

  4. I agree, this one sounds good. I love most of the Harlequin lines. they are great fun reads that i use for in between books or when I don’t have a lot of time to read.
