When the universe screws you over, adopt a dog.
Paige Herbert doesn't know how she lost control of her life. Friday morning, she had her future planned. Sunday night, she's jobless and staring at her half-naked fiancé and a woman wearing her green robe.
Taking refuge in her childhood home, Paige decides this time around her life partner will have four legs instead of two. But her newly rescued pit bull is in bad need of obedience training…and the perfect guy for the job has Paige forgetting the past.
Dash Lamont doesn't want to go back to jail. Out on parole and working at an animal shelter, he's focused on living life by the rules. And number one on the list: avoid temptation.
And then, in walks Paige.
The woman parks in the middle of Dash's well-ordered life, demanding his attention with her offbeat conversation, sinful curves, and dream of a refurbished classic Chevy. Despite his decision to keep his distance, he somehow finds himself agreeing to her plea for help.
As the two spend more time together, awkward attempts at flirting, late-night dancing to jazz music, and a chance taken at a Halloween party lure the hesitant pair down a sensual road.
But when sins of the past work against the newly budding romance, Dash will need to decide whether to take his chance on love or stay in his safe lane, watching as Paige drives off without him.
If you like Helen Hoang, Lauren Landish, Christina Lauren, and Talia Hibbert you'll love this fun contemporary romance!
First time reading this author. It kept me reading. I liked Paige’s character the most because of her quirkiness. Not sure how successful the relationship between Paige and Dash would be in the real world, but it was interesting to imagine it. I think I would read another book by this author.
