But Gavin Tolliver has never forgotten the woman who has always held his heart. And when Mac rescues a stray puppy named Tulip, only Gavin, the town’s veterinarian, can help. With a little assistance from Tulip, Gavin vows to make Mac realize that their feelings are more than just puppy love…
My first thoughts reading the Title I was a bit thrown on how much of a romance story this would be, but don’t judge a book by its cover and all right? So I went in and I was hoping that it would not be cheesy. I can ensure you that the book was nothing of what I expected!! The story starts out introducing Mac short for Mackenzie who has come back to her old home town after 7 yrs because her best friend is getting married and she is looking forward to seeing her friends but worried about facing past failures! Meet Gavin the bride’s little brother and who is a veterinarian and has grown Up! Not only does Mac have to face the town that she left abruptly after being stood up at the altar but when she sees Gavin again after 7 yrs well let’s just say that the stars and the bed of his truck was a lovely memory. The chemistry is hot between these two and it’s fun to see the war in Mac as she tries to fight how she feels! I was rooting for her to get past her issues and give Gavin a try! All around the supporting characters are awesome and hilarious! Wonderfully written and such a sweet romance! Great, great read!
