I'm a sucker for small town stories and add to that three sexy brothers working with animals? What we got here is a fun contemporary romantic read. I am never disappointed with a Jill Shalvis contemporary and Animal Attraction is no exception.

I fell in love with both Jade and Dell right from the beginning. Jade moved to Sunshine, Idaho eighteen months before the story began. She went through a very traumatic experience and left Chicago to escape her family and her memories, though she eventually planned to go back home. When Animal Attraction began, she was working as a receptionist in an animal clinic and had about a month left in Sunshine before she leaves for home. Dell was Sunshine's sexy veterinarian. Animals love him (and vice versa) and the ladies love him more. On the outside he was friendly with a ready smile for everyone but he doesn't let anyone too close except for a few friends. Both have trust issues and do not let people get too close but for different reasons. I like that they have that in common. They are also reluctant to start anything because Jade is leaving and it was great watching them fight their attraction to each other. It was great watching them get together--their chemistry was great.

I also really liked the relationship Dell has with his brothers, especially Adam. It was fun seeing them interact and give each other a hard time. I am looking forward to reading Adam's book--I think I already know his heroine. I did wish that there was some dialogue (or some kind of resolution) between Dell and his mother. There were a few scenes between them and I know the issues in their relationship cannot be resolved quickly but it felt like that secondary story line was left hanging.

The writing and the pacing was great. The dialogue felt authentic to the situation. There is also great humor in this one. Animal Attraction is the second book in a series but it can be read as a standalone. I myself did not read the first book but after reading this book, I am definitely moving up Animal Magnetism (Brady and Lilah's book) up my to-be-read pile. Brady and Lilah were super cute in this book.

If you're looking for a fun contemporary read, you should definitely check out this series and Jill Shalvis (if you haven't already). Animal Attraction is a light, fun, sexy read and highly entertaining.

Great Book

I read the other book in this series, ANIMAL MAGNETISM, and immediately after I finished it I wanted to get this book. It was even better. The hero is a really cool guy and I liked him a lot.

    Velvetstar to Horseclan

    Two thick sheet like pieces of rock leaned against each other with brambles growing over the back and sides. It created a cozy den to the side of the clearing, both large and spacious but confortable and warm. The grassy floor was dotted with moss, green and ready to be made into nests. -Warriors Den-

    Disappointing

    I have read most of this authors books and am now making my way through this series. I was disappointed by this book. The lead characters were both likable, particularly Jade, but I never really cared what happened to them. They didnt have as much chemistry as I thought they would. Interesting storyline. Not a bad book but not a good book either.

    Of course if you are a Connelly, then things aren't always what they seem. Well, that is to Jade of

    But that doesn't stop her sassyness get in the way and she tries everything she can to prove that she can
    do it all. Even if that means going up against Dell, one of the stubbornness men she has ever met.
    And she's had her share of stubbornest. 

    Can Dell tame the girl?
