After you’ve sold your soul to the devil, can you renegotiate with a dog?
Brilliant defense attorney, Finn Morgenstern, knows the worst guys pay best, so defending slimeball, Rance Franklin, becomes his path to senior partner and a whole lot of benefits. But then a walk home to his pricey townhouse brings him face-to-ears with a batshit-crazy little dog who just won’t leave him alone. So Finn takes the dog to the local veterinarian to find out how to get her back to her owners. Hello vet! Emerson “Em” Fairweather sure doesn’t match his stodgy name. Tall, platinum blond, and gorgeous, Em puts the pet in pet ownership. But Em has ugly secrets and Batshit dog is up to her ears in larceny. Suddenly Finn is the one who needs defending, and he’s faced with a choice between what he thought was important and a whole new batshit-crazy life.
Really I give this a 3 1/2 star rating. Mostly for the suspension of disbelief needed. The story was fairly convoluted as far as the crime or crimes happening, but it was still a cute little caper. With a dog that had a personality bigger than any of the humans.
Finn is a cut throat defense attorney, who ends up turning to mush for a run away dog. This is a smart guy, right? But he doesn’t know what to do with this stray dog. Ok, he was career focused, never had a pet before, etc. Just made me giggle a little.
Emerson is the vet he goes to for advice. From there, there is a bit of sexual tension (but honestly not a lot at all) as they get sucked into busting a crime ring- so they can get the dog back.
It was a fun read though, fluffy, cute, more than a few laughs. Definitely not hot and steamy, if that is what you are looking for, even though there are a few sex scenes. Both main characters were quite likable, I just didn’t feel their chemistry.
I am sure I will read book 2 when it comes out- especially if it is who I hope it is. I would put this in the fun beach read category.
