Sit, Stay…Fall In Love?

Veterinary technician Jillian Everett has met plenty of canines—and some men who deserve "dog" tags. But when millionaire hotelier Nic Caruso strides into Paradise Animal Clinic, a scruffy border collie muddying his designer suit, Jillian has to sit up and take notice. Nic might be gorgeous, but she's had more than enough heartbreak for one lifetime in dog years.

Nic doesn't expect to fall for a dog in need—or his beautiful caretaker! The big-city bachelor is on Paradise Isle to wreak havoc on the town Jillian loves so much. For the first time in forever, Nic realizes there's more to life than work…and love might be worth a shot. But can Jillian tame this stray for good? Or will Nic remain a lone wolf forever?

My Review:

What a brilliant first in series novel. Meyer invites readers into the island town of Paradise with a flair for detail and a very friendly vibe. She brings the town to life in a manner that makes you want to be there. You really get the small town, hopeful vibe throughout. Not only does she set the town up for future novels in the series, but she also tells a wildly romantic, yet completely believable story of star-crossed lovers.

Jillian & Nic were a fantastic pair of main characters. They were such contradictions to one another, coming from completely different worlds yet able to connect with one another. I like how the nitty-gritty parts of relationships came into play here. It wasn’t simply chemistry, then ‘bam, married.’ Trist, compatibility, and a host of other things came into play. The rest of the cast was fun to get to know as well. I loved the personalities that we run into in Paradise.

This was a fun, funny, & romantic debut novel from an author that I’ll definitely be following avidly. I can’t wait to see where her pen takes her next.
