Unfortunately, he's recently been saddled with his mom's irrepressible pooch, a golden doodle named Barbra Streisan

2+/2.5 stars.

I think I've broken my recent contemporary streak.

This book wasn't necessarily bad; it just didn't sparkle/shine. I didn't connect with the heroine, who was distinctly unlikable for at least the first half of the book. She had a self-actualizing moment when she realized she was an unlikable know-it-all, but even then it actually felt a little uncomfortable to watch her strip herself down and try to remake/rediscover herself. Look at the title, the cover, and the blurb - this book

Keenan is a celebrity, a charismatic TV talk show host and a writer of an extremely popular sex series. He also leads a weekly lunch for women, helping different women at a crossroad in their love life with his ‘male’ input. He wants to help all the women in the world to understand men better. He thinks women complicate matters. He wants to write a book about it.
Tory is a failing psychologist. She is not good with interpersonal communications, dismal with clients, but her educational credential

I always love when an author involves dogs in their story, so I was drawn to the book based on the title. Is that a silly reason to read a book? Maybe!

I give Hello, Doggy! 2 stars because the plot sounded good, but the execution just didn't do it for me. Every few chapters I found myself tempted to put the book down and go on to something else, but I stuck with it hoping it would become more interesting because I knew the plot had potential. FINALLY, a little over half way through the book drew

Honestly, I didn't care for the character of Dr. Tory Hoffstra, she was so arrogant and cold that I couldn't warm up to her at all. She is an academia that wants to put a mark in the world, but cannot practice what she has learned as a psychiatrist. She is not during well at the practice that she is at and is fired. She is trying to become a published author, but the publishing company that she wants to work with says that she is not famous enough to be a lone author. She needs to work with a c ...more

Elaine Fox (love the name) you've done it again! Fabulous read.

Loved the Vulnerabilities of the hero and heroine in this one. I didn't always like Tori but I kept reading, and that is the most important part is it not?

This book was not set in the same town as the others in the series, but that was OK. Brady's (book 2) brother is the star of this one, and he's a celebrity. I hate celebrity books but I didn't mind this one at all, I suppose because Keenan was only slightly famous.

I liked, but othe

Dogs really aren't that interesting. Creating a series based on men and dogs gets boring. VERY SOON.


***SNORE**** BORING *****

This book was great. I loved the characters and the 'waiting to see what happens next' feeling I got while reading. I liked the phobia, the family dynamics, the situations and how everything was dealt with. I'm completely with Tory on some things. (A coward am I) The ending was sweet, a little humorous and perfect. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for the first book. (Brady/Lily) That one's going to be good if this book is any indication. I liked how well everything was written and the ba ...more

I wasn't sure I was going to like this book since it has one of those much-used romance plot lines, the "big deception." In fact, I stopped the book after about 10 pages because I didn't want to read another book where one main character starts the relationship incognito. But I picked the book back up yesterday and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the interaction of the two main characters, and I like how Ms. Fox handled the deception. Keenan and Tory are complex characters and likable people. A ...more

I really didn't like the heroine. At one point I got so annoyed at her I wanted the hero to dump her because he deserved so much better. The plot was cute, and I loved the dog, which is what inspired me to read this one, but overall I found the story lacking a lot. I'm surprised I finished it.

Saw this in the shelf at the $ store, and it sounded cute. Ended up being a fast paced, light hearted, and sweet romance. Glad I picked it up! My only complaint... the dog in the book was big, but the dog pictured on the cover is a little dog. lol

Great read about a man, his dog and a dog-phobic woman.

Writer has great style that flows and keeps you interested a d entertained. Good plot about opposites attracting, sisters, women and their men problems, and how to "seal the deal." I'll read more of her books.

Predictable, but kinda cute (maybe because of the dogs).

Took me ages to finish this mainly because Tory induced one too many eyerolls. Keenan's alright, but Tory's character was a bit all over the shop; I think I liked the two sisters in Saks, Sasha and Katya, more than I liked Tory.

So I thought that some light reading with dogs would be fun, so I chose this series of books. Unfortunately, the heroine was not likable, and her life was a mess that didn't really get resolved over the course of the book.

Leider konnte ich mich mit der Heldin, Tory, nicht sonderlich anfreunden. Ansonsten war das Buch unterhaltsam und die Idee gefiel mir gut.
