I read this book because there was something about the synopsis but also because Berkley Publishing has published it and lets just say the last few books I have read by them have been added to my favorite’s list . Those books are The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory and The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang . Nowadays I have started liking books with cutesy dogs and babies . They just add to the swoon of the characters’ and the character’s affection towards them makes the relationship between the main couple more swoony and sexy !!!! So talking about this book , I absolutely loved it. It was such a sweet read . A perfect pick for when you are feeling low . It definitely did help me when I was super nervous.!!
So this book revolves around Jocelyn Hillier who has a laundry business where she works with her MOM . They stay in a city which is a refuge for the rich also known as the breakup town. The story starts the day she saves a dog from being run over by a car (putting her own life on risk) and a rich old man happens to see this encounter . And hence he employs her to take care of his three squishy rich dogs who win prizes in dog competitions. Its just he wanted someone to love as much as he did.
The story takes an actual turn when this old guy dies and leaves all his property to his dogs and makes Jocelyn there care giver/legal guardian which ultimately makes her the owner of everything. So this leads to many people coming out of the bushes , the first being the old guys son Liam and also a women who ensures that these richly pedigreed dogs win Dog-contests. Everyone is in a rush for her money leading to too many lawsuits. But slowly and slowly you realise why the old guy must have left her the dogs because she loved them so much.
Now talking about the other side characters – there is a best friend who can see the future and her own love life is in the sides along with her dream of being a lawyer , her best friends amazing grand mom, Jocelyn’s mom which we all kids can relate to ( you will love her character) , Liam who is the main guy who goes from being hot and cold because he likes Jocelyn but at the same time he wants the property because he feels it rightfully belongs to his mom , then there’s Liam mom who is a peach. And lets just say the two moms end up making a good team. There is also a rich guy who Jocelyn dates in the beginning but lets say he was a dick.
This book talks about how money changes people . But at the same time I felt the book wanted to say that it wont change every one around you. Its upon you to decide and understand whos for the money and whos there for you. I believe dog lovers would surely enjoy it and if you are not one you will surely fall in love with those friendly creatures who like kids love you no matter what . And coming to the main couple , I really liked that even if at points they bicker what should happen to the property they still stayed together , there was just an amazing charm to it. Its just you could feel there connection from their early meetings. A spark that you can feel through the pages.
