2.5 Stars

I’m obviously the rare dissenting opinion when it comes to this story so please read all the other glowing reviews!

Oh yes, that sweet adorable cover hides a more serious book, something I wasn’t quite prepared for. Beware very strong in the closet overtones with small town bigotry that comes with so much hate.

Points for featuring a too cute for it’s own good puppy and an almost 40 year old ginger virgin who is ripe for the picking.

I wanted something fluffier and my rating reflects that
Yes, I totally picked this book up because of the super adorable cover. Yes, I'm a sucker for puppies - especially when they are cute Labrador Retrievers, lol! It also didn't hurt that it's free on Amazon right now ;)

A Joyfully Jay review.

4 stars

I picked up Daisy, Yellow because I thought it would be a bit of fluff to entertain me while on vacation. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find it to be a well written, character-driven book. The author perfectly captured small town life, Hunter’s genuine fear of what would happen if his sexuality was exposed, and Noah’s complete devotion to little Daisy. I was charmed by them and their sweet (and eventually hot) moments together. I was also delighted with bot

Contrary to what this cover would have you think, this is not a fluffy read. True, it has plenty of fluff- but there's more to it than that.

Noah and Hunter's story balances fluff, angst and the ever-present healthy dose of sexy. To be completely honest, I could have done without the sexy, but it was nicely excecuted, so I'm not really here to complain.

As every story taking place in a small town, it has its due amount of angsty prejudice (taken a bit too far sometime

While I liked the plot and I admit I am biased (I have a soft side for books with dogs in them), there were too many things wrong to make this book anything more than 3 stars. For starters, the whole present tense first person narrative was just weird. Aside from that, there were so many errors that I don’t know why the author thanked the proofreaders. Finally, I can’t believe this was the same author of the San Capistrano series, this book was sophomoric in comparison

Yes, M/M romance books that have one of the main characters very closeted tend to irk me a bit, but in the case of Daisy, Yellow, the more narrow-minded small town setting does a lot to temper that ire. I can’t imagine how Hunter must feel, especially in one of the more dramatic and upsetting scenes late in the story.

Hunter is 39 and has always been in that closet—and has never done much physically with anyone…man or woman…in all that time. This gives his character an touch of innocence when it

Daisy, Yellow is the first book by Angelique Jurd that I've read and I really liked it. I will also say that I had to read and digest this book, flopping between 3.5 stars and 4 stars until I decided on 4. I'll explain. The book was well written, although there were some slow parts to it, parts that seemed to drag a little too much for me, but the story as a whole was really good. I also feel like the end just ended. It didn't wrap everything up, but that is just my opinion. It didn't really lea ...more

This is just overall a super sweet book. At first, I thought it started a little abruptly but after the first couple of paragraphs, I was incredibly invested in this story. Noah and Hunter are both very genuine and their story was refreshing. There was a good balance of the MCs getting to know each other and us getting to know the MCs. The pacing was good and while the story was on the shorter side, I did not feel like there was a lack of details or that anything was rushed.

This is a delightful, entertaining, thought-provoking story that I loved and I could not put it down. It is well-written with amazing characters, a somewhat domineering cat and a lovely puppy. There are some very disturbing acts of discrimination that unfortunately are only too real and I love how the author gives a realistic portrayal of how hard it can be to live your life openly and honestly with the person you love. Noah and Hunter come from very different backgrounds and while Noah has been ...more

Another book by Angelique Jurd that I adore ..
The story line is extremely good and it hurts that some humans can be cruel and unkind ..
But it happens and in this book you feel the hurt and and love from their families I was taken apart with so much feels ..
Wonderfully written, I need to read the second in this series now .
A book to be remembered.

That's why he buys a full of energy and curiosity Labrador puppy and moves to the farm he inherited from his grandfather. Although he doesn't have the slightest idea how to deal with all the new responsibilities he accepted, he has enough determination and enthusiasm to try to settle down in the new place and take c

Love Overcoming Fear

Angelique Jurd wrote a wonderful book called JESSE'S SMILE. It reminded me of one of my favorite gay romances ETHAN WHO LOVED CARTER (by Ryan Loveless). I had planned to look Ms. Jurd up to see if she had written any other books I might enjoy. I never got the chance because DAISY, YELLOW was recently released. Of course being a pet lover I was immediately drawn to the picture of a beautiful Labrador Retriever puppy on the cover.

You've got a new-to-town guy named Noah and his new puppy Daisy. A bee sting introduces Noah to small town vet, Hunter. Hunter's lived in a mostly bigoted town his whole life and has stayed single out of fear. The two get together but end up being outed which results in the town turning on the two.
Between Daisy, the yellow pup and Hunter's cat there is plenty of animal shenanigans to add cuteness to the couple's love story. It was very sweet and fun! However I was a bit bummed by the dark turn t

This is the first book in The Paw Prints Series. A wonderful book the writing was good. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters interesting. The characters were developed and thought out. Noah Jenkins and Hunter Ross are the MC’s of this book. There was humor, a cat, a dog, bees and snakes, family, a hospital, hate crimes, a farm and more in this book. I’ll admit that the title is interesting, and an answer was given fortunately.

Daisy, Yellow is an amazingly sweet, yet sad romance by Angelique Jord.

This story contains so many wonderful things - a precocious pup, a small town vet, and a former city man now turned farmer. It also centers around the small town's bigotry, homophobes, and their absolute inability to accept something other than what they know.

When Noah arrives in town, Hunter feels the attraction, but is unable to allow himself to come out. Not even for Noah. The town's folk are homophobic and had previously

The start of the book was cute. When Daisy, Noah's dog is rushed to the vet and Noah meets Hunter, you see the spark between the two men. And while I loved that Hunter stepped out of his comfort zone for Noah, he still is so deep in the closet (and rightly justified as it turned out) that he is unable to come out. Then the book gets a little dark. Some of the town, who doesn't know that Noah and Hunter are together, see them once and feel it's okay to go after the two men for something they susp ...more

And here we have yet another fantastic book by Angelique Jurd... with pups!

With her usual knack to write complex characters and the right amount of conflict to make the story interesting this book will also make you smile (if not outright laugh) with the serious conversations hold by Hunter and his cat, and the way Daisy (the yellow Labrador from cover) keeps getting them together.

Bigotry and hate is a serious issue in this book, which leads to some very sad, emotionally charged moments, and mak

This was a sweet, emotional yet heartbreaking story. The book was well written and flowed nicely from beginning to end. The discrimination Hunter is subjected to was captured realistically and powerfully.

Hunter was sweet but closed off whereas, Noah was the complete opposite. These two were so sweet together and I enjoyed their interactions and banter.

Noah and Hunter, along with Noah's pup Daisy and Hunter's cat Rosie, are adorable. Hunter finally has a love life for the fist time ever, now that he's met Noah. Their chemistry is strong, and they are sexy, sweet, and often funny together. The men are both loving pet owners and dedicated sons. I like their parents as well. If only Noah and Hunter could enjoy their new love without having to worry about small town hate. That is the part of the story that isn't pretty at all, but as someone with ...more

I wanted something light and fluffy, and while this book started out all adorable and sweet, its subjects quickly turned serious.

It was heartbreaking to see the events unfolding near the end, and while the epilogue was hopeful, it still left a bitter taste in my mouth. It wasn't because it wasn't believable, it was quite the opposite: sadly, you could definitely see things turning ugly in the blink of an eye.

This is a great love story full of adorable pets which I love! Noah and Hunter make a great couple and they have incredible chemistry. They also have a great understanding of one another and really support one another. Lots of bad stuff happens to them because of the discrimination and hatred in the small town where they live but I really liked seeing them band together and overcoming everything. I would love to see more of them in future stories to see how they have overcome everything that hap ...more

I found this to be a very enjoyable read. Both guys needed each other and they both had some growing up to do. Though the one who learned the most happened to be older than both Noah and Hunter. It only takes one negative push to cause a landslide. As much as I liked Noah and Hunter, in my opinion the ladies in here were the true champs though Hunter’s dad is pretty impressive as well. This is labeled as book one and I’m intrigued as to where the author will take the next one.

A sweet tale of two men falling in love. One recovering from an infidelity, the other closeted from fear of reprisals from the small town he lives in. Cute puppy and cat dynamics are the only comedy relief in a story packed full of drama. When news leaks that the two men are dating, bad things start happening, as feared. Girl, so much drama. Definitely will pick up the second book when it comes out.
