I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and some stories have been awesome and I’ve loved them and then there’s been some where I’ve barely made it to the end before I deleted them from my iPod.
So I’ve decided that every week I’ll share with you all one of my favourite stories. I’m going to start with Freckles by Amy Lane. The story was released in November 2016 but I’ve only recently found it and I loved it. I read it again today, and every time I read it I love Carter and Sandy more. And little Freckles!
I know it’s supposed to be a standalone but I’m hoping that Amy will take pity on me (and anyone else who loves the story) and give us at least a short story with the characters soon. I want to know what happens with the cases! (I want to see Marc get his ass kicked!) And when Valkyrie and Freckles meet! And Christmas day! And there are a few other characters I’d love to read more about *hint hint*
I thought it was a sweet read and I could tell you all of the parts of the story that I really loved (like “It means you can’t make me.”) but I don’t want to give the story away too much.
So here is the blurb along with the Riptide and Amazon buy links.
Carter Embree has always hoped to be rescued from his productive, tragically boring, and (slightly) ethically compromised life. But when an urchin at a grocery store shoves a bundle of fluff into his hands, Carter goes from rescuee to rescuer—and he needs a little help.
Sandy Corrigan, the vet tech who helps ease Carter into the world of dog ownership, first assumes that Carter is a crazy-pants client who just needs to relax. But as Sandy gets a glimpse into the funny, kind, sexy man under Carter’s mild-mannered exterior, he sees that with a little care and feeding, Carter might be Super-Pet Owner—and decent boyfriend material to boot.
But Carter needs to see himself as a hero first. As he says good-bye to his pristine house and hello to carpet treatments and dog walkers, he finds that there really is more to himself than a researching drudge without a backbone. A Carter Embree can rate a Sandy Corrigan. He can be supportive, he can be a hero, he can be a man who stands up for his principles!
He can be the owner of a small dog.
