Puppy Love for the Veterinarian



A New Leash On Love 

When June Leavy finds two puppies abandoned outside during a storm, she immediately feels a bond with the adorable animals. Swindled out of her life savings by her no-good ex, she, too, was left with nothing but heartache and struggles of her own. But when she arrives at the local veterinary clinic, June is met by dangerously handsome Dr. Ethan Singh, whose sexy smile threatens to disarm her hard-won emotional strength.

Back in Peach Leaf, Texas, to recover from an ugly breakup, Ethan gently tends to the puppies and their charming caretaker. But as the storm rages, so does the electric attraction between Ethan and June. Is this real, or a cruel phantom of lost love? Stranded alone at the clinic, only one thing is certain: they've got all night to figure it out



My Review

This was such a fun, sweet read of a book. I like how June and Ethan were brought together. You can't go wrong with puppies. Plus, June and Ethan made a cute couple. Although, they took things slow in the beginning. Yet, I can't blame Ethan as he really got his heart broken in a bad way. However with him being guarded and not giving into his attraction to June in the first few moments that he met her, made the connection that they shared that more real. I met a few people of Peach Leaf, Texas and from the descriptions I was able to get a brief image of what the town looked like. It seems like a very charming place to reside. Puppies, romance, charm, what more could you ask for in Puppy Love for the Veterinarian.


For many barbecue lovers, it’s all about the meat. Not so for this Texas girl—give me sides over the main course any day! I love all the classic southern barbecue pairings—mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, pinto beans, potato salad…and the list goes on. But my favorite of all, hands-down, no contest, is fried okra. I could seriously eat bucket-loads of this breaded, crispy, deliciousness, and it’s one of those rare treats that I love so much I don’t even think about the calories. And anyway, it can’t be that bad, right? After all, okra is a vegetable! ;-)
