What a great story. I really didn’t know anything about the book when I started to read it. We’ve all had a tooth ache and some of us may even remember the agony of our wisdom teeth giving us pain. Let’s add to that memory our fleeting crushes on the hot men beneath the scrubs and masks and you have the premise of Just Like Pulling Teeth.
I really do have to applaud the L.J. Harris for bringing us a brilliantly written story, we’ve all read Short Stories or Novellas where there is one stream of thought from beginning to end. This book gives us so much more, we have a cast of characters, 3 of which play a big role in the story and the other 2 as supporting cast. Aiden is our man with the wisdom tooth pain, his sister Rachel directs him to the dentistry office of Dr. Sebastian Anderson. Rachel and her husband Alex own a tat parlor together and Ana is Sebastian’s sister who helps him at the office.
Now back to the brilliantly written story. All of our characters are different in one another, yet L.J. has intertwined their stories into our main story, Aiden and Sebastian’s. It really felt like I was living the story along with Aiden, from feeling his phobia of needles, his love for his sister and his lust for Sebastian. There is a scene at the dentist office that will have you laughing out loud. Let’s just suffice it to say, the gas mask scene was so much fun and original, something I’ll remember for many many days.
A very well thought out, and put together story that will have you making dreamy eyes and laughing.
