A sweet second chance romance + shelter animals = great series start! It's easy to root for Matt and Claire (and their changing menagerie!)--it's clear from the start that even though Matt had ended things between them years ago that the spark wasn't gone. Fortunately, life seemed to be determined to throw the two of them together almost nonstop; unfortunately, Matt was more sure than ever that he still wasn't the person that could give Claire her HEA. It's hard to say who was more frustrated by his stubbornness, Claire or the reader, but he does eventually get his head out of his you-know-what and decide to grab happiness when it's right in front of him, resulting in a very happy (hopefully) ever after at last. Along the way there's all kinds of cuteness with the animals they're helping, fostering, adopting, and training, and some rather obvious clues about what direction future series books might take. If you enjoy second chance romance featuring furry secondary characters, give this one a try! Rating: 3 1/2 stars / B- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
If you're looking for a lovely, easy going second chance romance to escape into, look no further! This story even has some delightful fur babies to keep you sighing! Claire Asher was devastated when her High School sweetheart broke up with her after their prom so many years ago before he went off to serve in the armed forces. She discovers he's home again, almost recovered after serious injury, when he visits the local animal shelter where she volunteers, looking for a pup for his eight year old niece. The attraction between the two is still there but he's adamant that he's not good enough for her. Can a cute puppy his niece names Sparkle, together with other rescued animals, help bring these two together to find a HEA together? This is a second chance romance where he's determined he's not good enough for her so he'll leave again. It doesn't seem to matter what she says or does, he's attracted but sure he'll have to leave. With the animal shelter, the waifs and strays in it, blind dates, healing, a horrendous storm and so much more this is a gentle story of love lost and found again. I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
