About the Author

Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy—which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantics-at-heart come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She is a USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Montlake Romance and Entangled Publishing. Her novel, Fiancé by Fate, a 2015 Readers’ Crown Finalist, was an Amazon #1 bestseller for Series Romance. And recently, Wrong Brother, Right Match, won the Sweet Traditional category of the 2017 Golden Quill Contest and became a #1 Amazon bestseller for Holiday Romance and USA Today bestseller.

She serves on many volunteer boards in her community, but is most proud of her work on the Ocean City Free Public Library Board of Trustees, where she has served as President for over three years. She resides in a beach resort in NJ, and when she’s not involved in all the above, she’s taking care of her most treasured possessions: her husband, daughter, and dog (Sox).

Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Something smelled fishy the moment Wade Roberts stepped into his office. But that smell wasn't because he happened to work at a veterinary clinic.

Jane, who ran the front desk at his Sandy Paws practice, jumped up from her seat as soon as she saw him. "Oh, Wade, I'm so glad you're here."

He shrugged off his leather jacket and draped it on the back of a chair. "Why wouldn't I be here?" He was always here. One of the other two veterinarians on staff would be transferring out of state soon. And since his partner, Jeff, had a newborn baby in the house, the hours Wade was putting into the clinic might require him to set up a cot in the backroom and install a shower soon.

"Oh right, of course you're here." Jane sat back down and let out a nervous giggle. "But I'm still happy to see you. We're, uh, unusually busy this morning."

He grabbed his white lab coat where he'd left it hanging yesterday and slid it over his navy T-shirt. "Busy is good," he automatically replied, picking up his stethoscope.

Busy meant less time ... thinking. Without thought, it was easier to go through the motions of life and just exist. That's how he'd been getting through life since his wife passed away four years ago. But it seemed to be working out, and for now, it suited him fine.

Jane twisted nervously in her seat. "Yes, but there's busy and then there's busy."

"What are you talking about?"

She pointed toward the front of the clinic. "Um, maybe you should look for yourself."

The anxious vibe Jane radiated from her posture spiked his curiosity. Wade took several steps to peer into the waiting room.

Mother of Lassie. Jane wasn't exaggerating. Their office wasn't just busy. It was busy. The waiting room was completely jammed with owners — mostly women — and their animals. It looked like a pet epidemic. Dogs barking, cats meowing, birds squawking and — Is that a ball python draped over that woman's shoulders? Every seat was filled, and some people were standing or leaning against the wall.

He blinked and then stepped back, darting a glance at Jane, who wore an I- told-you-so grin on her lips.

What the hell is going on? Normally, a Saturday morning could get busy. After all, his office was only open until noon today and sometimes vacationers had emergencies with their pets that couldn't wait until Monday. It was also not unusual to see so many pet owners who were women. However ... He braced himself and sneaked another peek to make sure he hadn't been seeing things.

He hadn't.

Yes, it wasn't unusual to see so many female pet owners, however, it was unusual to see so many women looking ... bedazzled. Short skirts, high heels, hair straightened, some curled. Was that perfume he smelled through the animal stench? Almost every woman sitting with her pet was also wearing ... lipstick?

Definitely fishy.

He glanced down at Jane again. "Is today some kind of holiday?"

She gravely shook her head. "No."

"You sure?" He looked out into the room again. The women seemed to be surveying one another with equal amounts of animosity and ruthlessness that made the hair on the back of his neck stand at attention. "There's something weird going on out there."

"Um, yeah, weird." Jane slapped a folder in his hands. "Maybe you should just get started."

He nodded. He had to be reading too much into the situation. Women normally dressed up on Saturdays. Didn't they? After all, it was a hot date night. Saturday was also a big day for weddings, as his sister's friend Arden, a wedding planner, would remind him all too often.

The problem was that ever since Judy Tavish down at the Drip N Sip self-appointed herself as his personal matchmaker, he'd been on high alert to the attention of strange women — scratch that, to any and all women. Judy had apparently broadcasted his bachelor status to every single female — age not specified — within a fifty-mile radius this past summer. As a result, he'd been accosted by dozens of baked goods left on his porch, hundreds of pictures and love notes in his mailbox, and he didn't even want to think about embarrassing sext messages he'd gotten over the last few days.

Well, actually, some of those were pretty hot. He didn't know who they came from, but he'd almost been tempted to keep one or two.

Jane cleared her throat. "Doctor, your dates — er, I mean patients are getting restless."

Wade frowned. "Right." He took the folder in his hand and flipped it over. The name "Butters" was printed on the top tab. A six-month-old corgi mix. Typical six-month checkup. Piece of cake.

His technician, Becky, breezed into the office. "Morning, all. Sorry, I'm late. My fiancÃ(c) forgot he had to drive me to work today," she said with a happy yawn.

Wade grinned and tugged a strand of Becky's still wet hair. "Not a problem. How about you get a weight on Butters, then show her and her owner to Room A."

"Will do, boss," she said, heading in that direction. But after a few beats, she ran back in the office. "Oh my gosh! It's like animal Studio 54 out there."

"Oh, you noticed that, too?" he asked drily.

"Noticed?" she said, eyes wide. "You'd have to be blind and deaf not to notice that wildlife exhibit out there."

"We're not exactly sure what's going on," Jane said, biting her lip.

Becky folded her arms and smirked. "You're not? Seems clear to me Dr. Dreamy has a growing fan club going on. Saturdays are never like this when Dr. Benson is working."

Wade scoffed. "That's ridiculous. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that we're unusually busy today." At least he hoped that was the case. But considering the amount of attention he'd been getting lately, thanks to Judy, the thought had crossed his mind as well.

Becky shot him a knowing look. "Unusually busy with female clients. And did you see the outfit on the redhead? That is definitely a woman in the market for a man — sick cat or not."

Wade rolled his eyes, determined to brush off the notion. "Go do your job, please," he muttered. "It's just a busy workday. You'll see."

"Whatever you say." She shrugged at Jane, then headed back to the waiting room.

Wade shook his head. "She's obviously delusional after spending so much time with Arden, planning that wedding of hers."

Jane licked her lips. "Well ... I'm sure Becky does have love on the brain right now, but she also has a point. You're single and good-looking. According to Facebook, it's been a while since you've been in any kind of serious relationship. Everyone in town would like to see you settled. You have to admit that all — "

"Facebook?"

She swallowed. "Uh, yeah. You were kind of a hot topic last week."

"A topic with whom exactly?" he asked, already having a bad feeling about where this conversation was going.

Jane flipped her brown hair off her shoulders and settled back into her desk chair. "On Facebook there's a Cape Harmony Chatter group. We basically share gossip and news from around town. I forget how you came up exactly, but then all of a sudden you were on their top ten list of eligible bachelors this past week. I might have supplied the picture," she said with a guilty smile. "You were holding a kitten in here and it was so cute —"

Wade held up a hand. "Enough."

"Honest, I didn't know all that" — she waved frantically toward the waiting room, sending her bracelets clanking — "out there would happen. Oh my gosh, please don't fire me," she begged, clasping her hands together.

He pinched the bridge of his nose and sighed. "I'm not going to fire you." Good help was hard to find, and Jane was one of the best front-desk managers he'd ever worked with.

"Oh, thank you," she breathed. "Like I said, we were only trying to help. You deserve to find a nice woman."

He winced.

You deserve to find a nice woman.

He'd been hearing that mantra for the past year. Dammit, he wasn't interested in getting seriously involved with another woman. He happened to like his relationships short term — very short term. He'd been in love once. He'd been married. Check and check. Why couldn't people in town get it through their heads that he didn't want to go through all that again? Once-in-a-lifetime heartbreak was plenty. It made him tense to even think about it. No. When Miranda died, he'd vowed he would never put himself in another situation like that again. Because being the one left behind definitely sucked.

Becky walked back to them from the front waiting area, a large orange cat in her arms. "Okay, Doc," she said with a bright smile. "Butters and her divorced owner are waiting for you, just as you asked."

"Thanks," he said more gruffly than intended. But he didn't appreciate the "divorced owner" comment. He had enough matchmakers in town. He didn't need them at work, too.

Wade turned away and headed down the hall. Once he reached the exam room, he lightly rapped on the door and then opened it. He was greeted by a very attractive brunette wearing a tight red top with the shoulders cut out that accentuated a nice, trim figure. He shifted his gaze to her face, and she smiled prettily at him — and maybe just maybe a little too eagerly as well.

"Uh, good morning," he said, closing the door behind him. He cleared his throat and stuck out his hand. The woman's little corgi was curled in a ball, asleep on her lap. He looked down at the puppy. "And this must be Butters."

The wattage on the woman's smile increased and almost blinded him. "Yes, this is Butters, and I'm Violet. I just adopted her. It's not easy living alone. I'm sure you know what I mean, Dr. Roberts."

Good grief. Since when had his personal life become so public? Then he remembered Facebook. He could kick Mark Zuckerberg in the nuts. Or better yet, neuter him. "Uh, yeah. Dogs are great company. I have a yellow lab myself."

"Oh, how nice. Do you go to the dog park downtown? I've been meaning to take Butters for a while. Maybe our dogs could have a playdate," she said.

Wade suppressed a shudder at the word "date" — even though she was referring to their dogs — and kept his professional mask in place. "I have to admit I don't make it to the park that often. With my schedule, I usually just take her for a long walk around the block when I get home."

Wade was about to reach for Butters, but Violet leaned her chest forward at the same time. He pulled back. "Can you please put Butters on the exam table?" he asked nonchalantly.

The smile on Violet's face dimmed. "Oh, of course." She stood and gingerly placed her puppy on the table, leaning way too close. He shifted to the other side of the table. Maybe he should call in Becky to assist. And as a witness.

He began his routine of checking teeth and feeling for lumps, then listened to the dog's heartbeat. When everything checked out, he glanced at Violet. "Still feeding her three times a day?"

"Oh yes. Plus snacks," she said with a slight blush. "She's a growing girl."

"Any issues with bowel movements?"

"No."

"Great. Everything looks good to me. She's a very healthy puppy. My technician will let you know what kind of heartworm medication to purchase, and you and Butters can be on your way." He smiled, then took a step toward the door.

Violet didn't move. "That's it?"

"Uh, yeah, that's it. Unless you have any questions."

Violet brushed her bangs off her forehead and stepped closer. "Yes, there is something I'm a little worried about. I thought you would have automatically seen it."

He paused. "Seen what?"

"She has ticks."

"Ticks?" Wade looked down and examined the dog's skin through her fur once again. When all seemed fine, he looked up again. "I'm sorry, but I don't see or feel any ticks."

"Yes, they're right here, Doctor," Violet said, pointing to the dog's belly. "See those tiny bumps? I noticed them yesterday."

Wade's gaze followed to where she pointed and he suppressed a smile. "Uh, Violet. Those aren't ticks. Those are her nipples."

"Oh!" Violet's face grew red, then she looked under her dog again. "Really?"

"She'll be just fine. But if you're concerned about fleas and ticks, Jane at the front desk can give you a coupon for a special collar she could wear that works great."

"Oh, Dr. Roberts, you are so sweet," Violet said, placing her hand on his arm. "I'm so glad you were recommended to me. Please let me show my gratitude to you somehow."

Wade swallowed, noticing that Violet had yet to remove her hand from his arm. Gratitude? "Uh, completely unnecessary. But thank you. All in a day's work, really."

"Oh no, I insist. Maybe I could cook dinner for you. My ex-husband is a chef and he taught me quite a bit. One good thing to come out of our marriage," she muttered darkly.

"I appreciate the offer, Violet. Thank you, but you don't have to. In fact, you may not even feel the same about me once you see the bill," he joked.

Violet chuckled. "You're funny, too. And handsome. Judy was right about you."

Wade narrowed his eyes. "Judy?"

"Yes, Judy Tavish. She owns the Drip N Sip downtown."

"I'm well aware of Judy Tavish and her coffee shop." And her side job as a local matchmaker.

"She's a great listener. Over many cups of her maraschino macchiato, she helped me gain perspective on my divorce. Then, after it was finalized, she told me about how you were in a bit of a dating slump. But honestly, looking and talking to you, I can't imagine why."

"I'm not in a dating slump."

Violet gave him a sympathetic nod. "Judy said you would say that."

He arched an eyebrow, banking down his growing annoyance at Judy Tavish's know-it-all-about-Wade attitude. "And what else did the great coffee guru say about me?"

"Nothing much," she said with a shrug. "Just that your sister was getting married this year and that you would probably need a date to the wedding."

Wade blinked, hoping he'd misheard her. "She told you about my sister?"

"Yeah. And that you were feeling extra lonely now because of how happy and in love your sister is. Kinsley, right?"

That did it. A red haze clouded his vision, but he forced himself to press pause before he opened his mouth. Even if Judy Tavish happened to veer pretty close to the truth, he didn't appreciate the interference of her or anyone else in his life. Especially Kinsley.

"You know, Judy is not the Wade Roberts expert she's touting herself off to be," he said hotly. "Believe me, there's no dating slump going on. In fact, the only reason I'm not dating right now is like anything else I do or don't do in my life: it's by choice."

Violet cocked her head. "So you're not interested in dinner?"

Wade wasn't sure what constituted "dinner" in her book, but considering Violet's emotions were clearly still raw so soon after her divorce, he doubted she was looking for his usual meaningless hookup. "Look, you're a very attractive woman, but no, I'm not interested in dating anyone right now. It's nothing personal. But I do appreciate the offer."

Violet seemed to take his rejection with a mode of decorum and delicately removed her hand from his arm. "Too bad," she said with a sigh. "If you ever change your mind ... "

Wade finally had the urge to smile. "I'll be sure to let you know."

"So what are you going to do about the others then?" she asked, stroking her sleepy puppy's head.

He stilled. "What do you mean?" he asked carefully.

Violet took one look at his face and laughed. "Oh dear. You really don't know?"

"Know what?"

She shook her head. "Judy Tavish didn't just tell me about your dating slum — er, uh, dating choice."

The uneasy fishy feeling from earlier when he'd walked into work was back in full force and creating a buzz in his head. "Oh no. Tell me she didn't ... "

"Oh, yes she did," she said with a laugh. "I think she even put out a message on Facebook, offering her matchmaking services for free. Unfortunately, there is a whole waiting room full of women who have the exact same idea I had when I came here."

Wade sank into his chair. "Why am I not surprised that Judy Tavish is responsible for all this?"

Violet made a face. "It wasn't just Judy. Carol from the consignment shop was in on it, too. They're convinced you need a woman and pretty much made you out to be some kind of unicorn man." Her gaze swept over him in an appreciating manner. "Not that they exaggerated much at all."

Unicorn man? What does that even mean? He shook his head, trying to clear it. "That's impossible. Those women are just pet owners who needed the services of a vet today."

Violet bit her lip. "One woman out there is legit. Two, tops. Maybe."

"That's ridiculous."

wade roberts is sick of everyone in cape harmony managing his love life. he had love before and when his wife died of cancer, he couldn't imagine letting himself fall for someone else like that. his sister's best friend, arden pearson, finds the whole thing slightly hilarious. but then she loves to needle wade every chance she gets. when wade uses arden as an excuse as to why he can't go out with yet another eligible single lady, it's as if lightning has struck. he and arden can pretend to be dating. arden thinks the whole thing is preposterous, but when her ability to close a job depends on her being engaged, she changes her tune quickly. pretty soon the fake engagement starts to feel real. and since they are stuck with each other through the duration of this fake business, they decide that being real while fake is the way to go. and then everything is too complicated by feelings they refuse to admit and truths that hurt to feel. sorting themselves out will take some time, but these two are especially good together. there is some really sweet emotional moments in catch him if you can, but there are also plenty of laugh out loud funny ones too. i really enjoyed this latest cape harmony story, and hope we'll see elena's happily ever after sometime soon. **catch him if you can will publish on august 13, 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (bliss) in exchange for my honest review.

This was a nice read. This is a "clean" romance, and I usually like a little more spice in my stories. The writing was good though, and kept my attention right from the start. I thought Wade and Arden had great chemistry, and made a very believable couple. I liked the secondary characters, and felt like they fit well into the story. The ending was great, and I would love to find out what happens with Elena. This was a first for me from this author, but I will definitely be reading her again.

I loved the dynamic in this book between Arden and Wade. They have known each other most of their lives, and seem to be pretty good friends. And out of necessity, then engage in a fake relationship/engagement. But this is so much more. I loved their banter. I smiled so many times while reading it. They were written with such a comfort between them. It was pretty great the way they supported each other and encouraged the other in their careers. And then, during their angst time, my heart broke along with tears in my eyes. I love stories that hit you just right, making you feel. And this one is perfect. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Jennifer Shirk never disappoints with her romance novels. Love her sweet and sassy characters and the ones who unsuccessfully fight off falling in love with them. Arden and Wade decide to 'fake' date and become 'fake' engaged for reasons both of them have, but soon realize nothing is fake about how they really feel for each other. As usual, when I finish a Jennifer Shirk book, I'm already looking forward to her next one!

Wade Roberts, widower and the town's veterinarian, is happy with his single life. After losing his wife to cancer, he vows to never open up his heart again to that kind of pain. Unbeknownst to Wade, the elderly ladies in town have set up a "blog" on Facebook encouraging all the single women to seek out Wade in hopes of helping him move on to find love again. When he walks into his clinic only to be bombarded with a room full of "sick" animals and their gorgeous owners, he knows something is up. He receives baked goodies, texts, and love notes in the mail as well. In order to get the ladies off his back, he enlists the help of his "pal" and sister's best friend Arden. Wade's request couldn't come at a better time for Arden. Her wedding/party planning business is suffering due to a runaway groom. In order to land a new, high profile client Arden agrees to Wade's plan of having a fake relationship. When the client voices concerns over Arden's business being the best fit for her daughter, Arden blurts out she's engaged too. One thing leads to another, then Wade gives Arden an engagement ring and the fake doesn't feel so fake anymore. At least not to her.... Fake relationship to fake engagement to fake real relationship to ??? I absolutely LOVED it! Humorous, snarky, heart wrenching, and swoon worthy all entwined into one awesome story. This is my favorite Jennifer Shirk novel! Although it's the second novel in the series, it can be read as a stand alone and you won't miss any of the nuances. I also loved how Arden incorporated the dogs from the shelter into a wedding and a Valentine fundraiser. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Catch Him if You Can (Accidentally Yours) by Jennifer Shirk. This is veterinary Wade Roberts and wedding planner Arden Pearson’s story. I loved this story! I loved Wade and Arden’s characters. The banter between Wade and Arden and with the other characters had me laughing at times. Wade and Arden both have issues from their past that has them not interested in relationships. Due to some crazy circumstances Wade and Arden end up in a fake relationship. But does it stay a fake relationship? A fun, emotional, and heartwarming read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Another great book from Jennifer! I loved this story, fun, romance and wedding hi-jinx! What could possibly go wrong with the towns most eligible bachelor who happens to be a Vet and the local wedding planner now trying to live down a wedding where the groom decided to leave the altar and ex pat to the Bahamas. Poor Arden. Wasn't like her Magic 8 ball could have predicted that. When Wade arrives at work on Saturday morning to a waiting room full of single women with any sort of pet imaginable, he knows something is up, his office help snickers assuming he knows he's the talk of the town and the owner of the town coffee shop who fancies herself a matchmaker and rules the towns facebook chatter, decided that Wade needs to date. Since he's been widowed for 4 years, he's still not willing to put himself out there. Meanwhile he's angry, goes to the coffee shop to tell her to cease and desist, behind him in line is Arden. Arden thinks it a bit humorous, but doesn't quite get the morning he's had. Wade is Arden's best friends older brother. Arden always had a crush on Wade in high school but when he met the girl he who later marry, Arden tossed that one. Arden has her own history too, being left at the altar. Arden is now helping his sister plan her wedding. Wade has to think fast on his feet so tells a tiny fib about he and Arden dating, which escalates when Arden has a VIP bride who she really needs for her business to pick up and tells the mother of the bride she's engaged... to Wade. Let the games begin! What a great story and how fun,romantic, a splash of crazy and a couple of oops moments all at the same time. Absolutely had a good time reading this one! *arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review. All thoughts are my own*

I loved this book! It's a sweet lighthearted fake relationship romance that left me with a big goofy smile on my face. It starts with the light freak out Wade has when he sees his waiting full of the town's single ladies and carries on as the town embraces the new relationship between Wade and Arden. While Wade has his reasons for avoiding relationships Arden definitely has him rethinking his position. Watching these two slowly fall for each other is a fun journey. I highly recommend this one.

Wade is the town’s veterinarian and it’s been four years since his wife passed away from cancer. He has no interest in feeling that kind of pain again, so his dates are few and far between however the townspeople do not agree and he is growing weary of being set up everywhere he goes. Arden is the town’s wedding planner who believes in happy ever after for everyone else besides her. She thought that she had found it once but when it didn’t work out in spectacular fashion she has made her business her sole focus. Arden is Wade’s sister’s best friend so when he asks her to be his fake girlfriend to get the matchmakers off his back she ups the ante and now they are involved in a fake engagement to help her business but what happens when it begins to feel real? The interactions between the two were full of heat and humor which only made the book more fun. It was quite clear to everyone around them that they belonged together but convincing them was not quite so easy.

This is my second book by this author and I jumped at the chance to be a reviewer. Jennifer Shirk didn't disappoint me at at. I loved the fun, witty banter, the swoony chemistry, and the idea that these characters were friends before ever fake dating. Both characters have internal conflicts to overcome and that added depth and excitement to this romance. I loved my time with Wade and Arden and seeing the events unfold through both of their POVs was a perfect choice to tell their story. I also connected with Wade and Arden as both care for animals; I hope to see more animals as characters in Jennifer Shirks future books.

Loved this book! This is a wonderful book that opens with Wade, a widower and veterinarian, being pursued by what seems like every single woman in town. Apparently, some of the town's nosy and interfering folks have announced that he is looking for love. Too bad that he is still grieving his late wife and has no interest in finding love again. Arden doesn't believe believe in love or happily ever after for herself....an odd affliction for a wedding planner. They find themselves in a fake relationship to solve both of their problems, but then it starts to feel real... The author created characters that I cared about and made me feel invested in their story -I wanted them to get their HEA ending. I couldn't put the book down and found myself flipping pages just as quickly as possible. Fans of the genre will love this book and want to put it at the top of their TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list. While this is part of a series, this is a stand alone novel, however, it's so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.
Nicola1202 10 months ago
It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Jennifer Shirk and I’m scratching my head as to why because she always delivers a light, engaging romance with endearing characters. Even more so when the couple in question are a Doctor Who loving, bespectacled, widowed veterinarian and his sister’s best-friend who may plan weddings for a living, yet having being left at the alter herself, has sworn off men. “They were practically two relationship-dysfunctional peas in a pod.” I have to confess, the fauxmance trope isn’t one of my favourites and a deceased spouse can make or break a story for me, but Shirk does a fabulous job in bringing her reader a heartfelt romance between Wade and Arden as they fool the town that they’re dating, and have some fun together whilst doing so. “I want an animal happy to see me and to lick my face when I come home and to snuggle with at night. “Then you’ve just described me.” Whether at home or away, Catch Him If You Can is a perfect read for summer, or any season for that matter, and whilst the second in the Accidentally Yours series, can easily be read as a stand-alone. I won’t be leaving it so long before I read a Jennifer Shirk novel again.

Chase away the clouds and let the sunshine in. Shirk lit up my day with Catch Him If You Can. When Wade and Arden decide to say goodbye to love, they end saying hello to forever. A bit of small town matchmaking full of big city personality had me losing my head and finding my heart. Hot fun in the summertime.
