These adorable service puppiesare matchmakers in the making...
Dawn Vasquez never takes life too seriously. But when she rescues a golden retriever named Gigi, Dawn begins to imagine what it'd be like to settle down and let someone rely on her for a change. Unfortunately, Adam Dearborn--a handsome, hopelessly buttoned-up cattle rancher in need of a guide dog--has also fallen in love with the little ball of fluff and stubbornly insists that no other animal will do.
Adam isn't sure what drives him to fight to keep Gigi for himself, but he suspects it has something to do with his growing--and unfortunate--attachment to Dawn. Her whirlwind spirit and sunny disposition might make her a delight to be around, but they also make her unsuited for the difficult life of a rancher. He should be able to put her out of his head. But what's a love-struck cowboy to do when what he wants and what he needs have never seemed so far apart? And can he allow himself to take a chance on everything Dawn has to offer: puppy kisses, puppy love...and her.

Here is what I thought

I have really enjoyed this series (or maybe trilogy since it was about three sisters) and this latest one was no exception! It was a lot of fun.

Dawn is the carefree middle child and she has taken on that role very well. Her older sister is very straight-laced and her younger sister was sick a lot as a child and always babied. So Dawn sort of fell into the middle and lives with carefree abandonment and never sticks with one man for long. She has done this for so long that its what everyone expects of her especially her sisters.

Her and her sisters run a service dog place that sets dogs with those who need a bit of help. Dawn in one of her reckless moments cons her friend Zeke into helping her rescue a dog that is being mistreated by a horrible man. The guy also known as “No pants Shotgun” take after them and the only thing they can think of to do after the police give chase is to go to Adam’s house and pretend that they were getting theΒ  dog for him.

Adam is Zeke’s brother and he is a handsome, and somewhat grouchy rancher who has a bit of a vision impairment and is in need of a service dog but he refuses all the time. When Dawn and Zeke come with this little mistreated puppy and pawns it off on him to get out of trouble he decides he is going to keep it. Maybe it’s mostly because it keeps bringing Dawn back to his house even though he knows she would never want to be with someone like him.

I really liked Dawn as she can take about anything and give it a positive spin and she is very good at hiding her emotions. She tries to hide a lot of how she is really feeling with sex, even with Adam. She really likes him but doesn’t really know how to come out and say so and Adam doesn’t help because he pushes her away in his own way because he doesn’t think she would really want to be with him. Sometimes that was very frustrating!

There was a lot of funny moments in this that made me laugh so much. Dawn really is my favorite sister! Adam has a very stubborn cow that he named Dawn! So it was funny when Dawn the woman was scolding Dawn the cow. πŸ™‚

If you want a really fluffy fun contemporary romance read then I suggest you read this whole series and it was just pure fun!


Originally read this for Barb’s Puppy Love challenge in February but then things just didn’t go my way the later part of Feb and first of March so just now getting it reviewed…lol. πŸ™‚
