    One thought on “Just Physical”

    1. I really enjoyed this! Jae just keeps putting out great books. I did read book 1 in this series which I enjoyed, but missed book 2. I really should have read it first considering Jill was in it, but when I saw this book at the library, I couldn't pass up on reading it. And enough of Jill's back story was explained so I didn't feel out of the loop.In this book the main character Jill, has MS. I don't think I have ever read a LesFic book with a character who had MS before. I've heard about people [...]

    2. My third reread of this week of a Jae book (well, 3rd reread of this week, just so happens to be by same author and in same series). I read this book the first time in 2015, again some distance away from prior book in series, though just a few months between books as opposed to the year between books one and two. That's the first time I read the series. This time I read the books back to back this week over the course of three days.Prior two books in this series kept knocking on my six star shel [...]

    3. 4.5 starsJust Physical by Jae stole my heart. This is the third novel in The Hollywood Series. While the book is a stand alone, if you have read the previous books, especially Damage Control, you meet up with some familiar characters. Just Physical is a star studded romance that you do not want to miss.Jill Corrigan is a tough, hard headed, stubborn actress. She is fiercely independent, which is a double edge sword when you have been recently diagnosed with MS. Jill is a hard character not to fa [...]

    4. You know a book will be well written, well researched and edited to perfection when Jae is listed as the author. She breathes life into her characters. Her scenes and settings are easy to visualize. Just Physical is all this plus an educational read on the challenges faced by those with MS. The physical side effects and current treatment processes are a given. What I had not considered before was the stigma that comes with an MS diagnosis. Careers are affected as are relationships. Jae brings th [...]

    5. This is not just a romance where one of the mc's has MS. This is a book about what it's like to have ms and the effect it has on your life, career, and any romantic aspirations. As well as the effect it has on those that love you. Being someone with ms, i have to say that i am astounded with how accurate and educational this book is. From the symptoms to the psychological mindset, this book was spot on. Especially the desire to shield others from being stuck as a caretaker. But it also reminds u [...]

    6. Another great book by Jae. So far I haven't found a story by Jae that I didn't like. And this time I've learned a lot about MS. And about stubbornness.

    7. This is a solid, skillfully-written addition to Jae's Hollywood Series.First and foremost, I really must give kudos to Jae for the significant amount of research she must have done to provide such deeply-understood, nuanced, realistic portrayal of the experience - mental, physical, emotional, practical - of someone living with a chronic (incurable) illness [in this case, Jill with MS]. Everything was captured - not just from Jill's internal experience and perspective but also the perspective of [...]

    8. My spouse has relapsing remitting MS, so this was an interesting read. We were already in a committed relationship when she was diagnosed, so we worked though the I don't want to be a burden issues very quickly. Thankfully her symptoms have been very slow to progress. She was diagnosed 11 years ago and has had no major exacerbations. Small flair ups but nothing major. Fatigue brought on by heat, and some falls and balance issues, but we feel very blessed that her MS has been mild. Migraines are [...]

    9. I loved Jill when I first read about her in Damage Control and was thrilled to hear she was getting her own book. I wasn't sure it could top that one though, and boy was I wrong. I loved Just Physical. Like, big time loved it, one of my favourites this year. Jill and Crash are fantastic, fully fleshed out characters who each go on a journey of figuring out what living with MS means, both as the person living with with it and the person who loves the person living with it. I was glad to see Laure [...]

    10. Slight departure from Jae's "become friends--slow burn--then lover's" formula. (And yes, I love that formula.)More of a "casual sex first---relationship complications---resolution" formula.

    11. Finally!It took me long enough to finally finish this. I don't even know why, since it's a decent book. I must say, I liked Damage Control much better though. I liked Jill in previous book probably more than I liked her in her own. And that's not a good thing. It was maybe because in Just Physical she was too frustrating and annoying with the - pushing Crash away, because I'm sick and I don't deserve to be happy and I can't ruin Crash's life because she shouldn't be with someone who has MS - thi [...]

    12. I loved this one. Like, it gave me big strong fighty fangirl love feelings. I liked Jill in Damage Control, but she's so good in this one. I loved, LOVED Crash. She's wonderful, and I hope we see more of these ladies in the future.I've seen some people on here talking about how there's way more sex than a usual Jae novel and whether it's too much. For me, it worked out just right. There are only two or three explicit scenes, and the rest is hinted at. All of it, however, propels the relationship [...]

    13. Was an enjoyable book when Jill wasn't being annoyingly stubborn and rude to Crash. I can understand an independent person wanting to do as much as they still can, but it doesn't give them the right to be down right rude to others who just want to help. It was nice to see Lauren and Grace make a few appearances; I hope their story isn't done. The chemistry between Grace and Jill was well written (again when Jill wasn't being rude), and Crash's sense of humor made their interactions fun. Crash's [...]

    14. This is 4th story in the Hollywood series, although I don't really count Dress Tease (#3), since I'd call that a snippet, not a story. Anyway, this is a follow on from Damage Control, and here Jill gets her own story. In all honesty though, Crash is the real star here. The story centres around Jill and her struggles with MS, which I give Jae extra kudos for, as she doesn't shy away from any aspect of living with MS, and there are several thought provoking scenes. The problem lies in two areas, 1 [...]

    15. It’s easier to write something if there’s something super positive or super negative to say. I’m not sure I have much of either to note.This is my ninth book I’ve read by Jae. 17th ‘thing’ if you include the short stories. It seems that I both almost like everything I read by Jae, and have some odd vague reluctance to leap in. Like there’s this second book in a police series that I’ve been eyeing for more than a year, but I still can’t seem to get myself to start it. And, despi [...]

    16. It's a 3.5 for me on this one. It's an enjoyable read and I really appreciate all the research that Jae had put into the book. I do feel like I learned a lot more on the struggles and the problems for a MS patient after reading this book, it does feel a lot too much though, after it start repeating itself. I do love how the author wrote about Crash, compare how she studied her stunt, researched on it, and met her fear full on to her relationship with Jill. Crash is wonderful. Jill, to be honest, [...]

    17. I've attempted to start this book as a standalone, and end up abandoning it half way and gone back to Grace and Lauren's book. If this is your first book, I'd recommend as well at least you go back to start from the second book. That would help you a lot in understanding and appreciating the dynamics of this closely knitted circle of friends.Great romance story between the stubborn but courageous Jill, who has been battling MS symptoms for some time already, and Crash, the stunt double of Jill. [...]

    18. 3.5 When the author mentioned Jill as a side character in the other works, Jill is very likable. However, in this book, I find her personality to be very very very stubborn. Then again, her stubbornness is understandable due what she going through, but that's still an excuse. Here is one unexpected thing in this book that took me by surprise. Just Physical is a book by Jae, it's Jae! But wow, the sex scenes appeared way too fast especially since it's coming from Jae- because up until now, it alw [...]

    19. I think I may be in the minority but I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as the previous two in the series. I thought the stuff about Jill learning to cope with her MS and Crash learning about the disease and how she would deal with possible future situations was good but the back and forth and mixed messages from Jill made me want to shake her. I also had a tough time moving past a character being named "Crash."There were definitely parts of the book that I enjoyed. I liked the stuff about t [...]

    20. Another of the Hollywood Series, in Just Physical we follow the story of Jill Corrigan, who we met as Grace’s best friend and co-star in Damage Control. As with others in the series the books are linked, but not interdependent, and if you haven’t read the earlier titles this stands alone as a very good read.Jill has MS but is determined to stay strong, independent and self-sufficient in every aspect of her life. She meets Crash on the set of her latest movie and the attraction is instant. Ji [...]

    21. Not sure why this left me cold. I so liked Jill before. For some reason I can't pin down, this all felt like it never left the storyboard stage and didn't fully come alive.I don't know what exactly I wanted more of, but this felt lacking. The writing made me cringe a couple of times, which I never expect from Jae. Skipped through some scenes toward the end which I only ever do when I'm not really into the story.

    22. I had a hard time rating this. On the one hand, this is very well written. I enjoyed the main characters, both individually and together. I was engaged in the story. On the other hand, as I progressed through the story I grew more and more uncomfortable with what I saw as the removal of Jill's agency. I'd prefer to get the perspective from someone with a disability rather than just plowing ahead with my opinion, but I guess this is my review. The story proceeds in a way I guess most of us would [...]

    23. Tried my best to power through and DNF'd at 80%. I hate this book because it hates me. Ableist trash all the way down. Especially hateful toward wheelchair users. Hates fat people too, just because it can.

    24. For a long time, having been somewhat new to the scene of the F/F romance novel world, I drank from a lot list of books, one after the other after the other. A sort of, literary thirst that I couldn't really quench because I hadn't ever really thought to read the genre (although it suits me so well). Everything was (at least a little) exciting. I didn't care so much about exposition, plot, or grammar as I read book after book. Eventually, the novelty wore off and all of the building blocks of go [...]

    25. Great read!Before my sister-in-law died two years ago from cancer, she had been suffering with MS for about ten years. In some ways, the character Jill reminds me of Sandy. She was unwilling to talk to us about her condition. She told her husband that he should divorce her because she would bring him down with her illness.Thankfully, Bill never listened to her and was with her till the end. This is some if the essence I got from the relationship between Jill and Crash. The fears Jill experienced [...]

    26. Once again a solid book from Jae. I really liked reading about Jill's life and struggles. I liked that it was very real, even the ending, it's not 'all is well and this was just a hard time'. No, we know she'll still have struggles ahead of her, whether it is with her disease (not knowing how badly it will evolve) and how it will affect her relationship with Crash, or with her career as her disease gets in the way.I've enjoyed Crash's character very much. She's a very patient woman that one ;) . [...]

    27. I have read the entire series and this one was just as good as the others. Jae is one of my favorite authors. I loved Jill and she was my favorite character, I'm glad she got her own book. I really shouldn't have to say much, read the book you will enjoy it.

    28. Jae always delivers a well balanced romance with interesting characters. I really enjoyed reading about Crash's stunt work as well as the difficulties faced (both physically and emotionally) with Jill's MS. While I'm certainly no expert on either, everything feels authentic and well researched.
