My Thoughts:
Cora quit a good job with god pay and followed her passion instead. To train dogs. I did like the fact that she took a chance and went with it and she is great at it. I do not like dogs but she made me want to like dogs. She was sweet, kind, loved dogs beyond anything, and ack, with one flaw, her taste in men. But hey, a heroine needs flaws too.

She trains dogs. She hangs out with her roommate Maggie. She meets new people as she gets new clients. She spews vitriol over a famous dog trainer (who sounds like such an arse!). And she gets a crush on someone who is taken. Yes here red flags went on, I do not like a poacher, but I mean it is not her fault she fancies someone who is taken, someone who might be flirting with her. A woman has eyes and she does her best to keep it proper. It was a dangerous route to take storywise, but it did feel like she needs to learn. And hopefully find a good man. But who am I kidding. That blurb already spilled it, someone else might be in the wings too. She just have to see him.

I liked all the dog personalities and her friends. They were great. Then there was hunky Charlie who seems so right, kind, thoughtful...but taken. A dilemma for sure.

A fun story that also has some deeper things to say about training and dogs. I enjoyed it.

I like her voice and she was great here. She really fit the part.

Cora Bellamy is a woman who thrives on organization. She's successfully run her own dog training business for years, perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life. She's given everything to her business, and her lack of social life (or slobber-free clothes) has been completely worth it. But all that changes when she meets Charlie Gill, the hottest client she's ever had. The only problem? Charlie's taken. Luckily, Cora has a new friend-the sweet, lovably geeky Eli Crawford. More loyal than a retriever, he's always there to help Cora with her problems, including her love life. That's why she's shocked to realize that even as things start heating up with Charlie, there might just be a more-than-friends spark between her and Eli, too. As Cora's life gets more tangled up than a dogwalker's leashes-and as she prepares to audition for a dog-training TV show that may irrevocably change her entire life-she has to figure things out before it all goes straight to the dogs. Charming, witty, and warm-hearted, Life on the Leash inspires you to cheer for every underdog looking for love.


  1. Hi Blodeuedd I have this in print on my shelf. I can't wait to dig in now. Thanks

  2. Don't like dogs :-O jk

    I love dogs. I bet I haven't gone more than a year without a dog in my life (that I can remember, maybe when I was really young). Sounds like a cute story. Glad you enjoyed it.

    1. Dogs are scary ;) Scaaary! They are cute, but not close to me

  3. I don't like a poacher either. I'd be rooting for Eli. :)

  4. Glad it was good even with the crush on the unavailable guy. I love furry-baby characters so this would pull me in.

    1. I guess you can't help whom you crush upon

  5. You don't like dogs?! Dogs are awesome!! This sounds like something I would enjoy :)

  6. The pet business is booming right now, so starting a dog training business might not be such a bad idea! And I was confused because in the blurb it said Charlie was how were things heating up with him? Then I saw your review, and gah, no I cannot deal with a poacher either. No no no, bad bad bad.
