There can be something magical about meeting someone you might never have bumped into yet when accidentally thrown together sparks start to fly. In 'Forsaking All Others', since the actual incident stems from a friend’s dog getting skunked, it is amazing that the dog walker and dogsitter ever hooked up. The rest of the story is even more extraordinary and enticingly special with some jalapeño peppers thrown in for added spice!

While the writing was compelling enough to keep me reading, the premise - that a monogamous woman falls in love with a polyamorous one and vice versa and it all works out in the end...well, I guess it is a romance, so by definition not terribly realistic, but I just couldn't buy it.
