Heartfelt Healing: A Review of Abby Jimenez’s Yours Truly

Yours Truly Abby Jimenez

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.

Our Review

Abby Jimenez’s Yours Truly is a heartfelt and compelling read that beautifully captures the complexities of love and personal growth. From the very first page, the novel draws readers in with its authentic portrayal of Dr. Briana Ortiz, an emergency room physician navigating the tumultuous waters of a recent divorce and a demanding career. Jimenez’s writing shines with wit and warmth, making Briana’s journey both relatable and deeply moving. The character development is exceptional, especially in the evolving relationship between Briana and the enigmatic Dr. Jacob Maddox. Their chemistry is palpable, and their gradual transition from colleagues to friends to something more is handled with a delicate and realistic touch.

Jimenez doesn’t shy away from exploring vulnerability, resilience, and the healing power of love. The dialogue is sharp and engaging, often infused with humor that lightens the more intense moments. Readers will find themselves rooting for Briana and Jacob, both as individuals and as a couple, as they confront their pasts and look towards a brighter future together.

However, one drawback of Yours Truly is that certain plot points can feel somewhat predictable. While the narrative is engaging and the characters are well-developed, some elements of the story follow familiar romantic tropes, which might be a bit formulaic for seasoned readers of the genre. Despite this minor criticism, Yours Truly remains a delightful and emotionally resonant novel that will leave readers with a sense of hope and satisfaction. Abby Jimenez has crafted a story that is both heartwarming and deeply affecting, making it a must-read for fans of contemporary romance.
