Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.
Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.
But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?
Warning: Do not read while sipping hot liquids. Or cold ones. Or while sitting anywhere laughter would be inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppies and a snarky pair of underwear.

It’s not what you think
I thought this book was going to be about a dominant female and male, but maybe the male submits to her in the bedroom. Nothing overtly domme/sub or BDSM, but maybe some elements. Something!
This book has none of that. The title refers to the dog on the cover, not really the relationship between the two main characters. However, the book is still very cute and lovely. Your average romance novel, but still funny and worth reading.
I usually hate split POV romances with a passion (it feels like lazy writing to me, to just switch POVs and tell me exactly what the other character is thinking instead of making me figuring it out through their dialogue/actions), but this is one of the few books where the split POV works because the characters think so differently. The guy has a unique way of thinking/talking that amused and stuck with me for days after I finished reading. It actually feels like two different people, instead of my worst fear, with which is different POVs obviously written by the same person because the narration is too similar, ugh.
It was alright..
Overall the book with okay and the only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of how much the main male character irked me. I love just about all of Elle’s Briar books, but this Blake guy annoyed me how he talked! He seemed overly pushy and really immature with his vocabulary which in my opinion made him unattractive. I loved the story line and had this character been written much different I would’ve given a better review. I think I’ll just stick to the Off Campus and Briar U series...
Fun and happy
I loved that book because it’s an easy read with very little drama and lots out happy times.
But as a Canadian I can tell you that there is no such thing as Toronto red as part of the colors of the Toronto maple leafs hockey team colors. It is just blue and white.
