This is a lovely, light romance with a cast of varied personalities and emotions. There is no real drama to tense you up, yet it never got boring or saccharine. Kurt may have seemed a bit too standoffish at first, and Kelsey too naively optimistic, but it all worked. It was real ...more

It may sound silly, but so often characters act like children throwing a tantrum – so yes, it is noteworthy ...more

She gives everything that she has to them and with that devotion, she also makes an incredible friend. When she is asked to head up a rehabilitation program for a dog fighting ring, she ...more
I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
The ARC was provided by Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for an honest review.
This is a sweet opposites-attract contemporary with just a hint of magical realism. It’s the second in the Rescue Me series, but I read it as a standalone. I’m very much looking forward to going back and reading the first book soon!
