Book #2: Going to the Dogs 2: The Alphas Series
Source: Author and Purchase
My Rating: 4/5 stars
Sometimes in life, the best lessons are also the hardest lessons. When Pru Chambers walked out of Nate Taylor’s life, he learned the hard way that you can lose that which you love the most when you don’t devote time and effort to that person. To be sure, Nate has A LOT of money and a few very good friends but he doesn’t have Pru and that has haunted him since the moment she walked out of his life. Good thing he has those few very good friends who are willing to scheme on his behalf
Harper the Blonde Juggernaut (or Attila the Hun) Shaw has no problem interfering in the lives of her friends when they can’t clearly see what’s good for them. Harper can clearly see that Nate and Pru are meant to be together and with a slick bit of maneuvering, Harper has Pru roped into a deal that will require Pru to give Nate a second chance. While Pru is trying to figure out how to approach Nate, Fate) who apparently owes Harper a favor!) steps in to save the day. The lot across from Pru’s apartment is just begging to be overhauled and Pru is of a mind to turn it into a community garden. A community garden takes a lot of work and even more money which is how Pru finds herself, grant application in hand, sitting across from Nate at Alpha Group.
Nate has no idea Pru made a deal with Harper but having Pru back in his life in any capacity is a stroke of luck. Nate can feel the attraction between he and Pru but he knows she’s skittish about becoming involved with him again. Nate wants Pru back in his life for the long haul but in order for that to happen, he has to prove to and convince Pru he has truly changed. No more horribly long hours at work, no more single-minded focus on earning money. As Nate quickly discovers, Pru needs him to be steady and present now more than ever. Along with the community garden project, Pru is also dealing with a dilemma in her professional life, one she has struggled with for years.
As the community garden project rolls on, Pru and Nate grow ever closer. On a day to day basis, Pru sees Nate making a real effort to be present, to be available, and to be a true partner to her but she is still very hesitant to commit completely. Pru desperately wants to believe in the change she is seeing in Nate but history has a way of repeating itself and Pru is wary. In fact, even when Nate is ready to take their relationship to the next level, Pru has a hard time believing in Nate. To make matters worse, Pru is still having issues with her professional life, the community garden is running into significant problems, and Nate, in an effort to fully prepare himself for married life is reverting to some of his old ways. Yeah, it’s all sort of a big, fat mess that can only get worse before it gets better.
The Bottom Line: While Holding Still probably isn’t going to be my favorite read in this series, it is still a really good read and totally worth your time. From the beginning Nate was my favorite character and that carried through all the way to the end. Though he does make some mistakes, Nate is a truly changed man who has nothing but good intentions toward Pru and their future. Nate is steady and strong which is exactly what Pru needs him to be. As for Pru, she is a generally likeable character but I always wanted a little more out of her, a bit more courage, a bit more backbone, and a bit more faith in herself and Nate. Oh, she eventually gets there but I wanted to see eventually throughout. With that being said, there are still some really great moments for Pru in this read, Nate has some outstanding moments, and of course, there are the dogs. One mustn’t forget about the dogs who always create a wonderful dynamic in Dawson’s reads. The HEA for this read is so sweet and well-deserved after everything Nate and Pru endure to there!
I adored Nate. He is a sensitive guy who stayed with an ex-girlfriend longer than he should have because he loved her grandmother and didn't want to cut ties with her. He is a hard worker and loves with all of his heart. He thought that having money would make his life great, but he discovers that Pru is all he needs.
Pru has a fear of change. She doesn't want to lose her family by pursuing her own dreams and she doesn't believe that Nate can change and want to spend more time with her than her job. When the reality of it is Pru herself is afraid to change to make herself happy.
I loved this second chance love story. This group of friends is a lot of fun and I loved watching Nate and Pru reconnect and rebuild what they thought they had lost.
Going to the Dogs: The Alphas Series Book Two
Nate Taylor has never really gotten over being dumped almost two years ago. No one he dated seemed to be equal to that one woman. He continued his fight to get over her as it was past time. And then suddenly she's there, back in his life—through the AlphaGroup anyways.
Prudence Chambers had made a deal with the devil—okay, with Attila the Hun—fine, she made a deal with Harper Sinclair Shaw. Same thing. Prudence would get recognition for photographing the Harper's wedding and all she had to do in return was give Nate Taylor a second chance.
The dog park babes and their guys are back along with the men from the AlphaGroup. Ian has found his true love...and now, hopefully, Nate will. These tough guys become pretty weak when it comes to the women in their lives. Looking forward to the rest of the stories in this series.

I loved every minute of it and had a hard time putting the book down because I had to find out what would happen next. Very well written and a great cast of characters that all work so well together. They make you feel like you are right there in the story with them.
Nate is a workaholic and ruined his chance with Pru. Of course Harper Shaw has to stick her nose in and use her matchmaking skills to get the two of them back together since she thinks they are made for each other. So she gets them working on the same Community Garden Project. Will her matchmaking skills work? Will Nate and Pru have a second chance at love and make the changes in their lives that they need to make? Read the book today to find out.
Nate and Pru's second chance at getting it right was a fun filled, surprise packed, incredible journey filled with unexpected pit falls along the way. Loved them both - never stopped reading till the end.
Coco and her puppies were such a great bonus to the story - loved little Naz.
Another great book in the Going to the Dogs 2 series. Can't wait till the next.
