Small dogs can make big changes… if you open your heart.

Carter Embree always hoped someone might rescue him from his productive, tragically boring, and (slightly) ethically compromised life. But when an urchin at a grocery store shoves a bundle of fluff into his hands, Carter goes from rescuee to rescuer—and he needs a little help.

Sandy Corrigan, the vet tech who eases Carter into the world of dog ownership, first assumes Carter is a crazy-pants client who just needs to relax. But as Sandy gets a glimpse of the funny, kind, sexy man under Carter’s mild-mannered exterior, he sees that with a little care and feeding, Carter might be “Super Pet Owner”—and decent boyfriend material to boot.

But Carter needs to see himself as a hero first. As he says goodbye to his pristine house and hello to carpet treatments and dog walkers, he finds there really is more to himself than a researching drudge without a backbone. A Carter Embree can rate a Sandy Corrigan. He can be supportive. He can be a man who stands up for his principles!

He can be the owner of a small dog.

Carter hated his job – or more specifically his totally horrid boss – and found himself floundering at work and unable to hold onto a relationship with another man. A chance encounter at the grocery store has Carter left in possession of a tiny fluff of a puppy – and his life is irretrievably changed.

I really enjoyed this fun and friendly story. Filled with loads of emotion and humour it was a real breath of fresh air for me. I usually find pet stories hit and miss – either the pet side of the plot consumes the story and I feel like the romance isn’t shown enough, or the exact opposite where the pet plot is virtually forgotten. I thought this story struck a really good balance between the two, largely because Sandy worked at the vet’s office and so large aspects of Carter needing help with Freckles included Sandy too and helped showcase their blossoming relationship.

I found both Carter and Sandy to be interesting and relatable characters. While their romance grew quite slowly I found it realistic, understandable and very sweet. Readers who are happy for a slower-pace in the sizzle department should find this a lovely story focused on the characters and on Freckles working her way into Carter’s affections and poor Carter finding his whole life turned inside-out. I had to laugh – my sister is a lawyer and some of Carter’s reactions (drawing up a contract for his dog-walker while making soup and the dog-walker got to know Freckles as a classic example) made me laugh, because while cheesy and seemingly silly – my sister would TOTALLY do that herself, just off the cuff and because as a lawyer it’s second nature to her.

So I have major kudos for Ms. Lane in creating relatable, realistic and fun characters and breathing some real life into this story. I absolutely enjoyed it and would strongly recommend it. With a lovely slow-burn style of romance and a gorgeous itsy little puppy I can’t imagine anyone not loving this story like I did.
