Addie Andrews is living a life interrupted.

Review: Mai Tai’d Up by Alice Clayton

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

This is the first novel by Alice Clayton that I’ve read.  I have been avoiding reading her, because I’m getting tired of New Adult in general, but when I saw in the blurb that protagonist Chloe runs a pit bull rescue, I couldn’t start reading this fast enough.  I was expecting a spicier romp, but Mai Tai’d Up turned out to be a sweet friends to lovers story, with a great sense of humor, a heroine who won’t settle for the easy way out, and a lot of dogs.  Oh, there’s also a couple of very hot smexy times near the end of the book.

Review: Unleashed by Rachel Lacey

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I took one look at Unleashed and was smitten.  How could I resist that cute cover?  It’s like the dog is forcing his human companions into close quarters, because he knows what’s best for them.  I envy a dog’s view of the world; everything is better with company, there is never a time when play isn’t appropriate, and there is nothing to bring contentment like a cuddle and a hug.  If humans acted more like dogs, methinks the world would be a much happier place.

Review: Ice Dogs by Terry Lynn Johnson

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Oh, dear, where to start?  I loved this book!  I received a surprise copy in the mail, and I was chomping at the bit to read it.  I had posted previously about Ice Dogs, because I think the cover is so striking, but I was worried that something bad was going to happen to one of the animals.  What if one of them died?? That would have ruined the reading experience for me.  I am STILL traumatized by Where the Red Fern Grows, and I read it when I was, what, 13.  While I can’t remember the death of every human character in A Game of Thrones, I still get upset over the death of Lady.  Ugh!  Reading stories with animals can be so trying for me!
