Alex Myers is keeping deeper secrets than just his pet ferret, Karma, who is illegal in California. Both Alex and his twin sister, Tabitha, can “hear” the thoughts of animals. It’s an ability he puts to good use working at an emergency animal clinic while studying to become a veterinarian.
One night, local animal-control officer Dylan Travers comes into the clinic with an injured fawn, and it doesn’t take the two men long to act on their mutual attraction. But the closer they become, the harder it is for Alex to keep Karma and the rest of his menagerie from Dylan. And then there’s the matter of his ability…. Will Dylan even believe him if he tries to explain?
Add to that debilitating migraines from especially “loud” animals and a scheming coworker threatening the clinic, and Alex needs Dylan’s support more than ever. Alex just wants to keep his job, his pets, his lover, and his sanity. But he can’t do it alone.
Okay so this is an adorable story. Light, fluffy, and there is A LOT of sexy times. The furry critters are the best kind of secondary characters for any book. Alex works in a Veterinarian Clinic… The night shift. It’s how he meets Dylan an Animal Control Officer!
So anyway, Alex can hear animals. When I first read that in the blurb I assumed it was very Dr. Doolittle but it’s not. He doesn’t hear them like all their thoughts. He gets emotions mostly. Hunger, happiness, tired, scared. All the “eat, sleep, friend, kill,” feelings lol. So I thought that was shockingly more realistic… If you expand your mind that is.
Dylan is such a sweetheart and crazy understanding. He really adores Alex and they have a serious attraction to each other. I mean sex on the first date? LOL these two say yes to that!
Of course there’s a bad guy who has tricks up his sleeve but this isn’t an angsty story at all. Simply a situation that actually doesn’t last very long. This isn’t written to drag you deep into the pits of suspense and drama. It’s a feel good book. A take me lightly story.
Tory Temple has written a story for readers who simply want to sit back, laugh a little, and enjoy some love.
