Can these two find the love they deserve while raising four dogs, or are they destined to just be friends?

This is another fun novel in Megan’s Slayer’s Must Love Dogs series. I have read a few of them already. I adore the plots that are centered around dogs and the men who love them. We get to meet Kelly Haas, a man who can’t live without a dog and after losing his last one is searching for a new companion to enliven his rather boring life. Fate steps in when he finds a website for a Basset Hound rescue group. It’s incredibly sweet watching him fall in love with a one-eyed male named Louie.

Now Louie is going to bring his new human to the man who rescued him, Rob McMann. Their first meeting was electric and both men felt the attraction immediately. Rob is a man who puts dogs first and everything else in the background. His life was a hard one, his whole family refusing to accept the fact that he is gay. The only thing that keeps his depression away is rescuing dogs and watching them find a loving family. My heart ached for him because he lives a cold existence outside of the animals, foster animals and his own. He doesn’t have much of a support network and although his father had left when he was young, his mother forced him to be the stable man. He wasn’t able to show any feelings, he had to be stoic at all times. I got a feel for that when he finds out his mother is dying, and he has to handle her affairs. The author does a great job of getting the reader into just how bad his childhood was as he received nothing from his mother’s will, all of it went to his sister. His sister is another example of how bigoted people can be towards those that are different. She just thinks he can flip a switch inside him and fall in love with a woman.

On the other hand, Kelly is having had a more stable home life, although he feels incredibly shy and awkward. A great example of this is him blurting out to Rob, “I wanted to say hi before now, but I didn’t. I’m not usually shy, but I’m not great at making a move.” I love his character because he is caring. Even though he doesn’t know Rob very well, he offered him all the support he could when he learned that his mother had died. Rob really needed that love and understanding so that he could finally let his guard down. Their love making is hot but sweet as well. I could just see the connection between them crackling every time they are in the same room. It helps that the dogs are them to help them feel like a family, a pack.

There are a few things that I would have like to see changed. I know this is a rather short story, but I think they jumped into bed far too quickly. I would have liked to see the relationship develop a little slower, to get to know them a little deeper. It’s also interesting just how fast Rob opened up to Kelly.

In the end, it’s a sweet story about two men and their rescue dogs that bring them together when they most need it. Each partner brings something that is desperately needed in their relationship. I’m a sucker for any story that involves dogs, and this warmed my heart. You can tell that the two of them have found their soul mates and the life in front of them is going to be much happier.
