Overview

Beware of Doug by Elaine Fox

Lily Tyler's very interested in her sexy new neighbor, private jet pilot Brady Cole. Brady could really go for smart, gorgeous Lily. The fire that's generated whenever they're together isn't just chemical . . . it's nuclear!But then there's Doug . . .

The real ruler of the roost—Lily's noisy, nasty, match-mauling pooch—Doug likes to greet anyone he dislikes with yaps, nips, and very unpleasant surprises. And Doug does not like Brady. (Doug, in fact, doesn't like anybody—except Lily, of course. And, oddly enough, the squeaky clean, partner-track attorney whom Lily's domineering dad would love for his dutiful daughter to marry.)

Brady's no canine fan to begin with—and Doug's the devil-dog incarnate! But Lily could never get serious with anyone who doesn't click with her precious puppy—so Brady's going to need a lot more than great looks, smooth charm, and hot passion to get himself out of the doghouse and into Lily's life!

Elaine Fox is a witty, modern day romance author that is able to make the story suit many reader's actual lives. Her characters are each very unique and create strong emotional responses in the reader (you end up loving some, and hating others) and throughout the book, she switches perspectives from one character to the next, traveling through Lilly, Brady, and even Doug's mind! I thoroughly enjoyed this book: couldn't put it down! A wonderful tale that many, many people can relate to in regards to the battle over the high expectations that people (including ourselves) lay down for us, and how to overcome them. Make us another, Fox!

In Fredericksburg, Virginia, Sutter Foley¿s newly hired private jet pilot Brady Cole moves next door to English Literature Professor Lillian ¿Lily¿ Tyler. When he introduces himself to her and another neighbor Nathan Williams, the pilot and the professor are instantly attracted to one another. However, as if he knows Doug the dog goes berserk when Lily and Brady meet as he hates any man who ventures inside Lily¿s circle as he is the only acceptable male. On top of that, the howling Tricia arrives to call Brady an SOB for leaving her without a word.--------------- Doug detests Brady and Brady detests Doug as each senses a rival for the affection of Lily. However having made many bad relationship judgments, including Tricia, Brady decides to stay away from his neighbor though he enjoys spending time with her. Lily desires him, but Doug rejects him so she follows her canine¿s instincts even if that leads to Gerald the lawyer, who she feels no passion for because it is Brady the pilot whom she fantasizes making love with.------------- Contemporary romance fans will appreciate that Elaine Fox ignored WC Fields¿ admonition of never costarring with a child or an animal as Dog steals the show especially when he provides is first person account on his rivals for the affection of his significant other. The amusing story line is fast-paced from the first howling and never slows down until the ¿new guy¿ tries to persuade his canine adversary that he a ¿good guy¿ because to win Lily¿s heart he must win Doug¿s first.------------ Harriet Klausner
