|It’s going to take more than a little luck and a lost dog to bring two lost souls together.
When a crooked-eared dog with a big heart and no owner to be found sprinted across Casey’s path, she had no way of knowing just how much her life would change. After agreeing to temporarily foster the lost mutt, she finds a new purpose in working with a local rescue—despite having no idea how to take care of a dog. She can barely take care of herself.
A lost dog isn't the only chance encounter Casey will have at her local park.
Charlie may have known a lot more about dogs than Casey, but it was his green eyes and relentless smile that first drew her to him. But, as the two of them connect and sparks fly, Charlie’s past comes back for him. They will both have to decide whether to face their secrets or let their pasts hold them back from finding happiness together.
|This was sweet. I really identified with Casey from thr beginning wigh her social awkwardness and introversion. And then came Baloo, who pretty much stole the show. I also really liked Charlie and what a nice guy he was, especially how unassuming he was (I am all about the beta guys *sigh*).
This was a fun and thoughtful rom-com that was definitely for dog lovers. The real romance here was Baloo and his new owners. Which was very sweet.
I liked all of the details about dog rescues and how much character growth Baloo brought on, as well as how he warmed up.
Could have possibly used more development on the human relationship side, though it was a pleasant read. It reminded me of one of those Hallmark movies that gives you the warm fuzzies.
