Review: THE HUSBAND LESSON by Jeanie London

103626332From NetGalley:

There’s been a mistake!

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!

After I finished this book I just felt…meh. It doesn’t really feel like it was a romance novel. There is a happily ever after, but it comes at the very end of the book. The couple never even goes on so much as a date throughout the book. Karan and Charles do share a past, which makes the HEA more believable, but I just felt like something was missing. Most of the story is about Karan and her self-centered behavior. Karan sees the world in one way – how it affects her. This changes as she visits a therapists and learns some things about herself. Charles is very one dimensional. He comes across as emotionally unavailable in the beginning and it doesn’t change really throughout the book. I didn’t feel a connection between the two.

the book girl gives THE HUSBAND LESSON a 2/5
