There are some major grammar issues with this writer. She doesn't know how to use pronouns. She used "him" when the meaning was obviously HER and then used "he"r as the subject of a phrase. "....her and Ian went...." Subject and object pronouns are not interchangeable and neither are gender specific pronouns. There's also a timing problem. Five weeks ago Aunt Tilly died and within a month or less of the book's plot line, poor old Aunt Tilly had been dead five months.
Callie and Owen stole my heart! Callie and her group of girl friends gave me a Sex in the City vibe with each lady being a stand out with something different. Callie is our girl next door who loves to be active and always falls for the wrong guy. Owen is a sexy nightclub owner who doesn't do relationships. When their dogs get together, Callie and Owen find themselves pursuing a relationship that is everything they didn't know they could have! This story was sexy and fun. Owen was broody and a little damaged, but Callie helped him see that he deserved to be loved. I loved watching Owen let his walls down. I will definitely be jumping in to read the rest of the books in the series! I love these women and I can't wait to see the men that complete them!
This book is a really cute story, however, it bogs down through the first 1/3 on the "woe is me, I'm not worthy, I have a tragic past" theme. I would have preferred it lighten up a little, it is a romantic comedy.
I would recommend this as a little light reading, and to continue the series, if you really enjoy it. I, however, am not sure I will try for another book.
It does need another Beta Read and Edit. There are typos, there are run-on sentences/thoughts or lack of punctuation and breaks to know where a thought/action ends and whether it's the next hour or day. It's distracting from the story and one of my pet peeves.
I love self-publishing authors. they have great stories, they just need more than one Beta Reader, one that is not a close friend and will tell them where corrections are needed. Errors can be found by these readers that editors also miss; It is catching the stops & starts in a story that are hampered by incomplete thoughts/sentences or a change in how the author wants a sentence to read, forgetting to delete all of the previous try.
Good luck to this author and I hope this series has done well for her. If previous books were to go through another review and cleanup, I'd jump at the next story. If future books go through a cleanup, I'd consider buying more from this author.
The first in a series that seems to have a good reader following, the he said/she said alternating POVs work well together. Well written and well pace, it's a good easy romance read. The only caveat being: must love dogs. Because there's a lot about dogs.
Luckily I love dogs. The heroine is a dog trainer, and two of her best friends (also single women) are a dog groomer and a vet, so you know right away there's lots of potential to keep this theme going. The hero of this story is the bad boy next door, a rich playboy nightclub owner who inherits a Great Dane from his great aunt. Her dog is Jack, his is Jill, and guess who runs off and gets pregnant? Even my young niece went "awww" at the sweet cute-meet setup. (No, I didn't let her read this book! I just gave her a verbal outline of the plot. I'm a good aunt! just not a great aunt - ha! humor!)
The comparison to Sex in the City is slightly exaggerated, at least for this first book. Situation-wise and humor-wise it fits, but don't expect Samantha getting it on in a sex swing or crazy monkey sex... our heroine Callie is pretty much a girl-next-door, despite her apparent history with bad boys that's alluded to but never explored.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, I'd give this a solid 4.5 out of 5 and recommend it for the beach bag!
