Tough Fibbie that he is, Jake wants nothing to do with Muffin until he finds out his beloved Aunt Sophie has tied his inheritance to his care of the dog, and that in the event of his default, all reverts to the lovely LeAnne. Quickly, we find out why Jake is so emotional about one of Aunt Sophie's properties. He's also suspicious about LeAnne's occupation and her up-scale resort for humans and their canine owner. Certain that she's fleecing the unsuspecting, he decides to play along with the terms of the will if only to debunk the doggie shrink. What evolves is one of the most entertaining stories I've read in a long time as Jake and LeAnne at first circle each other warily and then break down and admit their attraction for each other.
The book had me laughing and, in the end, crying. It was one of those books I wanted to go on for another 300 pages or so *just* so it wouldn't end. My heart went out to Jake and how important his Aunt Sophie and Uncle George were to him. And I loved LeAnne for her ability to get 'close' to him and help him.
I don't know of a better way to spend a couple of summer days, and if Amazon would let me, I'd give "Against His Will" a 6-star rating. I can't recommend this one highly enough and I'm looking forward to Ms.Jensen's next release.
But is it hot?
Jake Donnelly is an FBI agent who inherited some money and property, including a beloved mountain cabin, from his Aunt Sophie. Actually, Jake didn't inherit anything. Muffin, an overindulged bulldog accustomed to spending two weeks of his summer vacation at a dog spa, inherited the whole thing. When Jake learns that he is muffin's designated caretaker, he also discovers that the mountain cabin can be his - provided he takes exemplary care of Muffin. So it is that Jake winds up at the dog spa with Muffin, where he encounters comely dog psychiatrist LeAnne Crosby. He views her with suspicion and disdain, suspecting that she might have tried to fleece his aunt. And a pet psychiatrist? Seriously?
LeAnne realizes that Jake is suspicious of her, but that does nothing to dampen her desire for him. Or his for her. They sniff around each other (GET IT?), pushing and pulling against their attraction. And then a witness Jake and his FBI partner are protecting shows up, and some bad guys show up, and we have a different chase on our hands.
The subplot is just a ridiculous farce. It's almost as if Trish Jensen knew it was silly, but she couldn't stop herself from including it. The reason for it becomes quickly apparent (let's just say that it might involve that cabin in the woods), but you can't help but think that there would have been a more plausible way to make that magic happen.
Oh, yeah. The magic. The sex scenes are ... cute. A lot more cute than hot, let's just say. After all the teasing, I wanted a bigger payoff.Read more ›
Buy this book - the premise is creative, the characters believable, and you'll understand why Trish is the Brotherhood's favorite (and only recommended) romantic fiction author. She must have some Southern blood in her somewhere....
As an example:
...she was trying to tempt him.
"How in Hell did you lose her again?"
After mature consideration, and carefully reading through the surrounding text, one discovers that the scene and characters have changed to a different set entirely, but it's extremely irritating to have to work so hard for what ought to be a light read.
Whomever she paid to convert this book from its print format should be ashamed to have done such shoddy work, and the author really ought to get her money back.
Trish Jensen weaves a rompingly-funny, heart-tugging tail [er...tale] of romance and laughter as we follow Jake Donnelly through the peaks and pitfalls of pet parenting. With the gorgeous and brilliant Dr. Crosby to help him fall for man's best friend, and with hit-man Jimmy 'The Bunny' on his tail, Jake Donnelly is in for quite a vacation indeed!
Fetch this book home and curl up on the furniture with it. It's absolutely a must read!

As another reviewer said, the kindle version is seriously messed up - I would be reading about one thing, move onto the next page and the rest of the sentence was missing. Read morePublished on February 8, 2013 by trulyblessedmama
Trish Jensen is AWESOME!! I have enjoyed all of her books. I often laugh out loud while reading her books.Published on January 28, 2013 by L. Reyes
This was an OK story, but I almost stopped reading because of how irritating several things became. First was the switching from one set of characters and a scenario to another... Read morePublished on January 26, 2013 by J&KN in NC
