Can love really strike twice?
Colin Dent knows what he wants out of life—his career at the advertising agency and his dog. Love is great, but he needs to know the guys in his life understand his dog is his family. He thought he had the perfect combination when he and Matt were a couple. But Matt didn’t stick around.
Matt Miller didn’t leave Colin because he wanted to—Colin hadn’t wanted him any longer. When Matt’s sister leaves her dog, Willie, with him for good, Matt not only understands separation anxiety, but how much it hurts to be forgotten. Then he sees Colin at the dog park. The old feelings rush in and he wants to open his heart, but he hasn’t forgotten the past.
Colin wants a second chance with Matt, but will the time and distance apart be too much to overcome? Or will the love of their dogs be enough to push these two former lovers back together for good?
When Matt takes his dog Willie to the park, another dog connects instantly with Willie.
Matt feels awful when he understands this dog belongs to Collin, his ex.
They ended their relationship because of Collin's first dog, who hated Matt and Matt didn’t see the importance of the dog in Collin’s life. Collin chooses the dog. So, here they are now, both with a dog.
Collin wants a second chance with Matt, only Matt’s heart is still shattered and even though there is a strong connection, he knows it won’t survive a second break. Collin is determined and takes every chance to connect with Matt.
This is somewhat a sweet story, super light, just like the cover suggests for me. I’d love to say that I adored this story but I’m afraid I can’t. I struggled to connect with their conversations and thoughts, they flutter and were indecisive. I tried hard to like them, still, both personalities couldn’t capture my heart, I’m sorry to say but even their dogs couldn’t. What I did like was how the hurt of Matt was described, at those moments I felt the emotion. For me, it would have been a more comfortable read when I had known how old they both were, and how long ago they separated, and the story had more development with characters’ traits. I missed a lot of background story that’s why I felt a bit lost while reading.
For the readers who love a short and light read with dogs, love, hurt and a happy end this one suits.
