    a charming canine contemporary romance

    In San Francisco Roxanne Bloom vows no more men in her life after her latest failed relationship. Her pit-bull-Boxer Lilith agrees with her assessment of the male of either of their species and has no problem displaying her canine rage at human men especially. This time Lilith attacks Roxanne's former boyfriend so the dog is in danger of being put down.

    Meanwhile matchmaking Mrs. Needleman believes that Roxie and dog trainer Eli Gallagher belongs together as they both cherish canines. Eli who plans to go home to Utah is in town temporarily as he searches for his biological father. He persuades Roxie and Lilith to come with him to Utah where he will work on the behavior of the latter and hopes to heal the human female misanthrope. As the pair fall in love, they return to the Bay, but soon secrets surface that could end their relationship that has just begun to gel.

    The latest doggy romance (see The Night She Got Lucky, Ain't Too Proud to Beg and Take a Chance On Me) is a charming canine contemporary romance. The prime story line is fast-paced and zany though a bit over the top of Nob Hill as the lead "triangle" (don't tell Lilith anything otherwise) confront a vile villain. Although a secondary subplot seems too quickly resolved, fans will enjoy Susan Donavan's wonderful Not That Kind of Girl as we wonder if the title refers to Lilith or Roxie (or both).

    Simply the best

    Susan Donovan pens another delightful story in Not That Kind Of Girl.

    Roxanne Bloom has had enough of the male species. Her last break up shook her to her very core and caused her to devote every spare moment to her man hating website and blog. Roxie's anger towards all things male has even spilled over to her beloved dog Lilith. When Roxie is attached in her own home, Lilith comes to her rescue but its Lilith whose life becomes in danger. Roxie turns to Eli Gallagher a well know dog whisperer to help save Lilith.

    Eli Gallagher knew Roxie and her man hating dog would be his biggest challenge to date. He is not sure which of the two is going to be harder to crack. Eli has always felt a special pull towards Roxie ever since their first meeting. He tried to keep his distance but when Roxie needs his help he drops everything to be by her side.

    The more these two get to know each other the more they realize they may have something special. Its going to take all the whispering in Eli's heart to break down the wall surrounding Roxie's heart.

    Not That Kind Of Girl is funny, sexy and a gem from page one. You will fall in love with these two characters and want them to get their happy ever after. Revisiting past friends in this series is an added sweet treat. You will hate to put this book down once you start. Susan Donovan writes such funny and sexy stories.
