Jessica, the protagonist, works in an animal rescue shelter, and wants to become a veterinarian. She is smart and loveable, and is essentially the darling of the small town she lives in, with its varied and interesting inhabitants her surrogate family. So, she is smart, but vulnerable. She is realistic, but has a soft side. She’s no fool but she wants to believe in her feelings. And she has an adorable side-kick dog named Banjo. I am on board with her as a character.
She has a best friend who is a sex-psychic. I am so intrigued.
They quote the Sound of Music to each other. I am loving this.
Eric, the love interest, is hot but a, uh, “curmudgeon,” to use the characters’ words, and set out to destroy the animal shelter that Jessica has devoted her life to. He’s complicated and not easy to like at first, but as the reader, you feel the same strange attraction that Jessica feels. It’s confusing and irresistible. I’m sold.
Better written than it needs to be, with a solid story, totally freaking hot sex scenes, and characters who genuinely learn and grow, I just loved this book. Check it out!
Enter Eric Slaughter, who just inherited the building that houses Jessica's shelter. He's a no nonsense business man, not used to giving things away for free. He looks at the bottom line. But meeting Jessica, and seeing her passion for what she does, he just might soften up a bit.
Even though Jessica is a proclaimed good girl, Eric lights a fire in her, and their chemistry is explosive. I loved reading their story, every line.
Maria Monroe has become one of my favorite authors. Definitely give this book a read.
Excellent writing, intriguing, well-developed characters, and lots of sexy scenes...everything you need in a romance novel!
