Lilly: My life is like the love child of a train wreck and a dumpster fire right now. I’ve been canned, my professional reputation is shredded, and now I’m walking dogs to make ends meet.
But I still believe everything will work out. Somehow.
Then a dog at the park attacks my friend’s dog. At first, I’m ready to give the owner hell—but it turns out he’s in desperate need of doggie daycare. I figure, why not? I love dogs and I need the cash.
Too bad his cocky bad boy attitude annoys me. He’s too damn cute for his own good. And I’m not talking about the dog.
Easton: My coach is riding my ass and I’m not handling it well. When I’m saddled with an abandoned pooch, my teammate thinks a dog will keep my temper in check. I think I have enough problems already.
But when my new dog gets into a tussle that leads me to meet a smoking hot chick who knows how to handle the rascal, I start to think pet ownership isn’t all bad. At least it gives me an excuse to see Lilly again. . . .
Neither of us are interested in a relationship. First they steal your bed, then they steal your heart. And I’m not talking about the dog.
There are two kinds of people in the world – those who let dogs lick their faces and those who don’t.
ARC REVIEW ➞
I loved everything about this book. The characters had great chemistry, there is hockey and of course, dogs!
Easton is a professional hockey player and quickly becomes the caretaker of an adorable dog named, Otis. He runs into Lilly and offers her a job to watch Otis while he is gone for games or to take Otis out for walks. Lilly is in need of the money and the recommendation for her new dog walking business so she takes him up on his offer.
They have a business relationship, however, there is an attraction between them that they can both feel. Easton also is falling in love with Otis and loves having him around. I loved seeing their relationship progress from just business to something more. I love how some tough issues were tackled throughout this story and how both Easton and Lilly handled them.
This is a great introduction to a whole new hockey team, as well and I can’t wait to get to know more about some of the other Bears players!
Must Love Dogs…and Hockey is a fun, adorable hockey romance that has some depth to it. A MUST READ!
