Awesome romantic story that has such humor and love with a bit of angst thrown in. What was so sweet is it has a theme built in around animals , which being an animal lover myself, I totally adored. Vesper is a vet and totally rocks at her job because of her love for the animals. Only thing is , she has this client, Ryder Carson , who is quite bothersome because he is always around. He is so cocky and very flirty and in her face. Very distracting for Vesper because she doesn’t know how to respond at times—she doesn’t know if he is coming on to her or if he is just a touchy feely gentleman.
Ryder knows one thing- he wants the sexy, sweet and innocent vet but she gives off the “hands off” signals. No problem for Ryder, he likes challenges and she is going to be his greatest. These two have the sweetest and hottest courtship in the book. The humor and the banter is entertaining while the storyline is light and sweet, which is different considering the author is Pepper Winters writing as Tess Hunter and she is known for writing some pretty dark novels while this book is very light, sweet and romantic, not a dark cloud in sight. Not to say there isn’t some angst, what romance novel doesn’t have some but this is pretty funny and the flow of the story is spot on. You will be able to connect with the characters right away and the story line with the animals will spark a chord in everyone. I really loved this book and can’t wait to see what Ms. Winters aka Ms Hunter has next coming out.
My rating: 4.6 stars ****
