So, the full title of this book is Fetch (Odd Jobs #1) and I was immediately intrigued. I mean, what kind of romance is involved in odd jobs? I'm over here thinking he's like a cleaning guy or garbage man. But then my blondeness got the best of me. I reread the title and put two and two together. Addison and Cole's story is about letting go of the past, throwing away the cliche's and allowing yourself to be happy regardless of how hard it may be.

A lot of heat in a small package…

Addison and Cole’s relationship began with a bit of chance and a little matchmaking but the sparks that flew were all theirs. This was a romance with a lot of smexy and humour right alongside it. Supporting characters provided a lot of the laughs especially Heather, Addison’s cousin. I liked all the characters, and obviously the romance was the focus, but I admit Heather often stole the show. Cole as well, with his low key job that he was uber-successful in, mean

Cute, fun read

One of the things I like about a hero in every story was his persistence. That he will do everything and will never give up that easily on the girl that he really loves. Well, Cole in this story was exactly that kind of hero. I liked his determination to get the woman he wants. And that's Addison.

“Addy, if you think you can run from me you have another thing coming. You can’t run away no matter how hard you try.”

If there is one thing they should both know about me, I don’t give

Fetch is the first book in the Odd Jobs series by author AJ Alexander. Fetch is a contemporary romance novel, and one that I really enjoyed at that. It is also AJ Alexander's debut novel, and it deals with plenty of adorable dogs, so you know right off the bat that it is going to be a huge hit with me. And the story lived up to the adorableness of all the furry friends.

Alexander proves that she can hold her own. Fetch is full of captivating moments and scene stealing characters intent on finding a place in your heart. Life is about finding the humor in moments of darkness and heading toward the light. Addison and Cole are a lesson in life, love and moving forward. The scope is not always pretty but the wisdom we gain helps us keep our heads even as we lose our hearts. Sweet and sassy never hurts when dealing with heartache.

A quick and quirky romance that didn’t just lean on lust it found itself knee deep in what can only be described as a sea of emotion. The first in a new series, the author didn’t leave anything to chance, she loaded the story with everything you could possible want but that didn’t mean that it had everything that you could need because there were times when I thought that the story was a little one sided.
Cole and Addison both felt something for each other when they initially met but Cole was mor

Fetch was an amazing story packed in a short(ish) read that never seemed rushed in my opinion. I've read the amazing AJ Alexander teaming up with other author's in the past, but this is the first one by her lonesome. Her talented writing style shone through the pages, and if you knew me & how I felt about the short reads, it takes a lot for me to see them as perfect, because I'm a girl who wants a big book. Now, this is the story about Addison, who is trying to break free from her overbearin ...more

This is book one of the “Odd Jobs” series. No cliffhanger so can be read as a stand alone. I’m looking forward to the following books because I am definitely loving all the characters in this book.

This is a super fast romance read. I think the four main characters are funny and the author did a great job in the development of said characters with as short as the book was. I think Heather (the cousin/best friend) is like super cool except the way she treats Wyatt had me no

I enjoyed this story from start to finish. A.J. Alexander did an amazing job on her first solo book. Fetch is the first book in the Odd Jobs series. The story itself sucked me in from the beginning and didn't let go until the very end. I loved getting to meet everyone, but this book focuses on Cole and Addison.

It wasn't easy for these two to get to this point. At times, I wanted to punch Cole. He was cocky and arrogant. But in the end, he redeemed

Who can say no to a story about dogs!

Fetch is a unique story that turned out to be really cute. Seriously, Cole was pretty dang smart starting up his own dog walking service. The beginning was a little choppy for me as the author bounced around with the different characters introductions. But once Addison and Cole met, I couldn't help but to get sucked into the story line. Addison had her issues with her father and I wanted things to work out between her and Cole after a little matchmaking by he

Fetch is the first book in the Odd Jobs series and the first solo book by AJ Alexander. This is a fast and hot romance book.

Cole is a dog walker. Addison is a future teacher. When Cole is out picking up dogs for their morning walks, Addison answers the door at the home of Cole’s client and his best friend, Heather’s home. It was instant lust (and possibly love) for Cole, Addison did not feel the same. Despite Cole’s heart being broken in the past and his man whore ways, he is willing to give al

Has an incredible condo makes lots of money and has Heather as his best friend. Cole is known as a man whore, but who can blame him after the women he loved crushed him.

You’ve got ladies with plenty of sass and sexy men who would do anything for them along with puppies and the perfect bit of drama to keep you hooked start to finish in this book! I adored AJ Alexander’s writing in this. She perfectly balances the serious with the sweet and even funny with Addy’s cousin Heather around.

This was a cute story. Heavy on the romance, but it seemed one-sided. I liked the fact that Cole is a dog walker. This is such an ordinary job and he seems to be successful, but we didn't see a lot of him actually walking the dogs. I liked that Addison was trying to break free from her overbearing parents and assert her independence, but she was quick to acquiesce when her father found out she was in New York and insisted she visit.

Addison moved away from her parents to get away from her father's controlling ways. She wants to make it on her own. She comes from wealth, but with wealth comes expectations and her in particular, her crazy, do it my way or lose everything kinda dad.

Cole wants to live a happy life. He left school to start his own business as a dog walker. He's done very well for himself, and also because of a broken past relationship, he really doesn't do relationships. Until Addy.....

Fetch by A.J. Alexander is book one in the Odd Jobs Series and tells Cole and Addison's story.
Cole is the born bachelor. He's a free spirit, women come and go and he works as dog walker.

This is the first book by A.J. Alexander that I have read and I really enjoyed it.

This story was unique and overall really cute.

Addison is trying to make a life for herself and not what her parents want of her. She is living in California with her cousin and doing just that.

Cole owns his own business that just happens to be a dog walking company. He has really made a name for himself and also really loves what he does. Cole also has a reputation of being a man whore. When he meet Addison all

This was a cute, fun quick Insta-love story. Cole is a womanizing entrepreneur who was scorned by an ex. Addison is a woman trying to stand on her own and get out from under her father's reign. When these two meet there is banter between the two, but explosive chemistry. This was a fun read as they both try to make each other cave. This was quite a roller coaster between these two. You also get a little back story between Heather (Addisons cousin) and Wyatt friends of Cole.

This book was just ok, filled in a few hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Cole seemed to fall for Addison in first seconds of meeting (bit unrealistic) then spent the majority of the book trying to make her his.
Addison was trying to escape her rich controlling father, her character was a bit up and down and cried too much for my liking.
Much preferred her cousin Heather as a character, she came across as funny and sassy.

Absolutely love this book. It's one of those books that you want to read over and over again. It's an enemies to lovers book. Full of humor and romance. A.J. had definitely outdone herself on this one💖 I would definitely recommend it too. I mostly love how the playboy changes to a one woman man. A must read for anyone who loves a good romance.

A quick romantic read that had me smiling most of the way through. Cole and Addison have an undeniable spark, but she is not interested. What will Cole have to do to show Addison that they should be together forever??? A great story!!! It was really nice to have a male hero, that was not a billionaire or deemed an alpha in this story!!!!

Cole has his own business walking dogs. He meets Addison while out walking a dog. Addison is a rich girl trying to assert her independence from her parents. These two fall in love and have pasts to overcome. Will Cole be able to settle down after being hurt by other women? Will Addison be able to become independent? A good romantic read, looking forward to more in this series.

When Addison and Cole meet the sparks fly, and he is determined that she is the one for him. True love never runs smoothly though, and the past comes back to haunt them both.

Fetch is a very cute romance. Cole isn't just a dog walker but the owner as well. He comes off as a play boy but he is loyal as they come. Once he meets Addison its all over for him. I love how he just knows his future is with her. Addison is running from her demanding father. She is trying to prove she doesn't need anyone to make her own life. Little did she know that Cole would enter the picture and turn her life upside down. Like all stories there is a little angst to be had. There is unrequi ...more

I am easily pleased when it comes to guys and dogs. It was totally flip of the switch for Cole. He'd definitely given up on settling down, but one night with Addison changed everything. It is a roller coaster. The build up was amazing!! I am so happy I read this book. I cannot wait for Wyatt and Heather's story!
