About the Author
Marcia James finaled in eleven Romance Writers of America contests before selling her first contemporary romance. Her releases include Sex & the Single Therapist (the first in a comic romantic mystery series) and the "Klein's K-9s Service Dogs" contemporary romance series. A national and international ebook bestseller, she writes hot, humorous romances featuring heroines you can root for, heroes to die for, and funny dogs. In her eclectic career, Marcia has shot submarine training videos, organized celebrity-filled nonprofit events and had her wedding covered by People Magazine. After years of dealing with such sexy topics as how to safely install traffic lights, she is enjoying “researching” and plotting her novels' steamy love scenes with her husband and hero of many years.

Marcia James wrote a compelling story, anchoring it with a depressed race car driver who can no longer race and the woman who steps in to help him recover–with some help from a furry friend.
While Ms. James shines a bright light on the developing relationship with Meg and Tom, with some steamy romance, she also brings important attention to therapy and service dogs.
The spicy love story plays out beautifully alongside the excellent canine causes Ms. James subtlety points to. Her knowledge of therapy and service dogs adds a whole new dimension to the romance.
I will be very interested to see more of the service dog romance stories.
Usually in a romance everyone is perfect. That's not the case in this story. Everyone has flaws and that just makes them more human. Happily ever after doesn't come easy. It has to be fought for.
Meg has had a crush on Tom ever since high-school and she is determined to drag him out of he despondency kicking and screaming if necessary but will she succeed with paparazzi dodging their footsteps. Can an ugly little Chinese crested dog play cupid and bring these two diverse individuals together? Ms. Jame heartwarming tale is a delightful story and is definitely worth reading.

He's hiding out in a little cottage on his parents' property, avoiding the media, and everyone else except his parents. He's depressed, and convinced he has no future. His dream is gone.
Then Meg Klein knocks on his door. She's the younger sister of his high school girlfriend, but she's also, now, co-owner, with her aunt, of Klein's K-9s, a successful non-profit which trains service and therapy dogs for people with a wide variety of handicaps and disabilities. She has brought with her an experienced seizure alert dog who former handler, an elderly woman, has died.
He's a hairless Chinese Crested Dog, with hair on only his head, feet, and tail.
Tom's family is between dogs right now, but they've always had retrievers, and he has the expected Tough Guy reaction to a small, handsome dog, but grudgingly agrees to give him a try, for a week. (I have a great deal more sympathy for his immediate decision to call the dog Bob, instead of the name his previous owner gave him, "Baby." Small, cute dogs should never be given names that encourage strangers to treat them as toys or dolls. That's how small dogs get a reputation for being "mean.")
His resistance fades a little more when Bob alerts to the start of a seizure. When, after the seizure is over, Bob offers to shake hands, Tom is completely sunk.
That's the important part, at least to me. Other readers may be more interested in the romance between Tom and Meg, which is nicely done, and feels very real. It does have more explicit sex than I'm comfortable with, but I know for other readers, that can be a bonus. I like Tom, Meg, his parents, her aunt, even Tom's former pit crew captain.
It's a fun, enjoyable romance. Recommended.
I received this book as a gift, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
