My Thoughts:
These two had their issues, for good and for bad.
Caleb, oh he just wants to take care of everything and I absolutely love him for that. Seriously, loved him. I would let him take care of me any day...ok nothing dirty there, get your minds out of the gutter!

Sadie has her own issues and she really wants to stand on her own two feet. Oh girl, let someone be nice! But her issues lies very deep.

Now what on earth could make these two form a relationship. He is a suit, all money and suave. She is a tattoo artist down on her luck.

A dog! Yes everyone loves a dog and they both fall in love with one. Omg the dog was the sweetest, it even made me want a dog! Schhh, not really though, I am afraid. But hey in theory.

Obviously the issues will bring drama and they have to work through it. And then this family of 3 can live happily ever after.

Oh and yes it is book 7 in a series. There is talk of other couples that they meet on their own, but I did not feel like I had to read those books to get this one. This is their story after all

A sweet tale.

Good female and male voices. A good range. And her dog voice was the best!

When it comes to the confident, charismatic Caleb Parker, Sadie Lane feels the spark—the kind that comes from rubbing each other the wrong way. She’s a tattoo artist, he’s a straight-laced mogul. But after they accidentally co-rescue an abandoned dog from a storm, Sadie sees a vulnerable side to the seemingly invincible hottie.

you’d better be sure… 

Caleb doesn’t do emotions. Growing up the underdog, he’s learned the hard way to build up an impenetrable wall. Perfect for business. Disastrous for relationships. He’s never worried about it before—not until he finally gets behind Sadie’s armor and begins to fall.

… someone is there to catch you. 

Both guarded and vulnerable, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Or are they? Shocked at their undeniable connection, can they ever admit to wanting more? That all depends on what they’re each willing to risk.

  4. I'm a "I'd like a dog in theory" person too! But Jill Shalvis always includes dogs to love in her books.

    1. I love dogs in theory :D I cn be all awww for them

  5. Yay, a book with a dog on the cover that actually involves said dog in the story! Glad the puppers was not just for show, and that it actually plays a big part in getting them together :)
