    The blurb had me at mentioning dogs. Actually, even the cover was good enough to pick my interest. You Lucky Dog begins with a dog walker getting into trouble with the law. Because of it, Carly's dog, Baxter, who is a calm basset hound, is swapped with Hazel, another basset hound who has tons of energy. Hazel belongs to Max Sheffington, a neuroscience professor.

Max is working on getting tenure. He is also trying to find ways to help his brother who is autistic. He thinks that dogs might play a part in helping him. Carly is a publicist. She has only 2 clients and neither one it's making her job easier. Her dream is to work in New York and one of her clients might be her ticket there. She just has to convince him to believe in his work. When Carly and Max meet, they share more than the love of their basset hounds. Attraction leads to something more. I wish I had loved You Lucky Dog but I had a couple of issues with it. The main one being that I didn't feel the connection between the two main characters. They lacked depth and their insta-love was a turnoff for me. The second one was the plot with the parents, I just felt it was unnecessary and too easily resolved and accepted. I didn't feel any empathy for Carly's family. On the other hand, I felt quite a lot for Max's dad and his brother, Jaime. Despite my problems with the main characters, I did love Baxter and Hazel. Every scene they were in, they stole my heart. Cliffhanger: No 2.5/5 Fangs A complimentary copy was provided by Berkley via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Any book with dogs on the cover I am immediately drawn to so of course I was excited to read this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved so many aspects about it.

The romance was adorable and wasn't the main focus of the book but I was more than happy with that. I would say this book is mostly character development with a splash of romance. The romance we got adorable and I loved it. The two basset hounds were the stars of the book and what I wouldn't do to have Hazel and Baxter in my life. This book put a smile on my face throughout and I had a great time reading it.

    An absolute treat!Heartwarming and hilarious. Fab characters and furry friends. Julia London has written a sweet romcom that will have you giggling, smiling, and wagging your tail.

Max is a brain scientist, a Professor of neurological science at the University of Texas on the tenure track. He is equally perplexed to find that his lively Hazel has been replaced with a much more solemn dog, we later learned to find out is named Baxter. When Carly shows up at Max’s door with Hazel in tow there is an immediate connection... between Hazel and Baxter that is. OK well there might be a little bit of an attraction between Carly and Max but they are not willing to admit to that yet. On the outside they appear to be quite different Carly is quirky and free spirited while Max is A little more buttoned up and serious. However they cannot deny that Hazel and Baxter love spending time together and this offers them an excuse to also spend time together. What follows is a charming story filled with family, romance, growth, some surprises, and of course dogs. This story was beyond adorable! I did really like Carly and Max, but Hazel and Baxter stole the show! Carly was a great strong and spunky character who I would love to have as a friend. The things she had to do for her job especially wearing those crazy high fashion outfits created by her fashion designer client had me cracking up. Max was great and I found the research he was doing involving dogs and autism really interesting. Max’s brother was autistic so he had a personal connection to this research, this also led to many heartwarming moments between Max and his brother. Carly’s family on the other hand was quite over the top. The interactions between Carly and her family generally left me chuckling. This is an absolute can’t miss for anyone who loves dogs, romance, and humor. This book in emojis 🐶 🦴 🍕 👗 📸 🐕 *** Big thank you to Berkley for my gifted copy of this book.

Crazy mom telling you all about her boyfriend of the day, sister who cannot handle her kids, really random dog mix-up…..it’s the funniest story and I laughed out loud multiple times when reading. There were plenty of heartwarming moments that I think you would enjoy! Were the characters slightly cheesy? Yes, but honestly, it was just too funny and darn cute! Usually I’m not a fan, but these characters were written with just the right amount of cheesiness to keep me, an overly serious person, happy!

    This is a sweet romance with some laugh-out loud funny moments. Carly is a publicist for a fashion designer, and she has to wear his outfits as a part of her promotion--outfits that get her into some truly hilarious trouble when she has to do, well, anything. The theme of dogs carries throughout the story, and it is a definite strength of the novel.

The theme of dogs carries throughout the story, and it is a definite strength of the novel. Max and Carly are brought together because of their nearly identical dogs, who are seemingly smitten with one another.  Max's research at the university deals with the neuroscience of the brain and he uses dogs in his research. His younger brother has autism, and he loves dogs. This book also has strong family themes, as both Carly and Max have complicated personal lives.  Max's love for his younger brother makes him a sweet and caring character, despite the fact that he may come across as aloof and overly "scientist-y" to others. While the tone of the novel itself is sweet, it has a bit of a gloomy feel to it. It's hard to explain. Maybe it's because of their personal lives, but I felt quite sad while reading it, even during the funny bits.  Both Max and Carly are under a lot of pressure--Carly with losing her job, her parent's divorce, the ever-increasing rent of her home, and Max with going up for tenure against the department's star researcher.  The one highlight in their lives seems to be each other, and of course, their relationship isn't easy. There's a major twist about halfway through the book that really puts a wrench in what they have found together, and while it seemed like it was intended to be funny, it did fall flat to me a little. I recommend this book to lovers of romance novels that have a strong dog-lovers theme. *Thank you to Netgalley and Berkley for the arc to review* This review appeared first on https://powerlibrarian.wordpress.com/ Instagram | Blog | Website | Twitter My 2020 Reading Challenge

    A dog mix-up brought them together, but it seemed like the universe was determined to keep them apart. I thought the set up for this book was fantastic! I won't tell you the whole tale, because it was quite funny, but the result was that Max and Carly, two people who probably would never have met, were brought together via this dog mishap.

There was that initial clash with Carly and Max having very different personalities and dog-parenting styles, but eventually, the four formed a sort of little family. Eventually all the together time gave way to more (as we expected), but family hijinks and career aspirations posed a threat to this budding relationship. Quick thoughts: • This IS a rom-com. Many have heard me complain about some books being slapped with that label and ending up a bit on the heavy side, but I would definitely call this a rom-com. The combination of zany antics, quirky characters, and humor kept it buoyant and I laughed quite a bit. • Romance approved! These two formed a delightful union. The attraction and depth of affection felt authentic to me. Seriously, I was in tears at one point, worried about the fate of their relationship. • The dogs. I could not get enough of the dogs. London did a wonderful job writing them into the story. They brought a lot of warmth and glee to the scenes they inhabited. Overall: A fun rom-com made even better with two adorable dogs.

    I have read other titles by Julia, so between her name and that cover, there was no way I was missing this. Carly and Max are just okay as MCs. They’re both hard working and devoted to their dogs. Unfortunately, that’s the best thing I can say about them. There’s no connection or chemistry and I didn’t care about their relationship.

I could have easily set this book down, never continued and been fine with not knowing the outcome. **Huge thanks to Berkley Romance for providing the arc free of charge**

I found this to be a perfect summer escape read many would enjoy, for being funny, and also for being such a light hearted read that involved really adorable hounds and so much more. If you are a dog lover, you cannot miss this!

"What, she was going to meet a great guy through a dog mix-up and suddenly find happiness? Only in the movies, girlfriend." I requested this book because hello, a meet cute through a dog mix-up? Sign me up! The hero and heroine share a dog walker and one day, their dogs, both basset hounds, are switched. Carly ends up with Max's hyper dog and Max ends up with Carly's sad dog. This book actually started off on a less than stable note and I was not sure if it would work for me. The prose has a strong romantic comedy tone that is rambly and chaotic in a stream of consciousness way. Carly was especially stuck way too deep inside her head; there was too much internal dialogue that came across as rambly for Carly and sciencey for Max. But I'm glad I stuck with the book because the writing improved as I continued reading. A couple of chapters in, the prose becomes less rambly and the focus is narrowed to dialogues and plot development. I can understand why some readers might not be patient with the writing style and if that's the only thing bugging you, my recommendation is to stick with it. One early reviewer wrote that the romance is insta-love and I beg to differ. This is actually a friends to lovers romance, with a fairly low level of angst. There are sparks of attraction when they first meet, but there is no insta-love. Max and Carly don't exactly get off on the right foot because of the dog mix-up, but they become friends and start meeting up for cute dog dates. Their dynamic is adorable; they're both such cute weirdos lol. Carly and Max snuck up on me and I'm enamored of them. I also really like how the author spent time fleshing out Max's job as a neuroscientist and Carly's job as a publicist. I was very invested in their career paths and I think the author did a great job writing their careers in way that is interesting and brings a lot of depth to their character arcs. Max's part of the story can be a little too sciencey, but it was easy enough for me to actually understand the kind of research he's working on. Carly's part of the story can be frustrating because she does not have the best clients, but you can't help but root for her success. And as for reviewers calling Carly a doormat...again, I beg to differ. I don't see Carly as a doormat; I see her as a person who is desperate to not lose her clients—her only source of income. My least favourite part about this book is the family drama. I love Max's family, but I had a really hard time liking Carly's family. These two families converged in a really dramatic and predictable way and I was not a fan of the so-called family conflict. It was annoying and not really necessary, to be honest. But everything else was great: the dogs, Max, Carly, their romance, and their individual careers. I'm so glad I stuck with this book because I ended up loving it!

You will fall in love with Carly struggling to make it all work, the dogs Hazel and Baxter who bring these two together, and Max for never letting go. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

The love story between depressed basset hound Baxter and the cheerful basset hound Hazel charmed the heck out of me and kept You Lucky Dog sprightly when the main storyline threatened to drag it down. The romance between the humans took far longer to work its charm on me. Carly Kennedy’s life is one disaster after another. She’s struggling with starting her own PR business and her impossible clients aren’t helping any. Then there’s her family, with her overwhelmed sister who comes with a chaotic household and her recently divorced parents who are into finding their bliss and selling timeshares. And that’s all before the rent hike and the accidental dog swap courtesy of her (now fired) dog walker. Finding the cheerful, throw pillow-eating Hazel in place of Baxter is the last straw. She’s able to track down her dog at Max Sheffington’s house and sparks fly instantly…between the humans, that is. Max is a neuroscientist and trying to make his case for tenure at the university is the most important thing at the moment. He hopes the additional funding for his research will lead to help for people like his brother, who is severely autistic. The last thing he needs right now is a complication in the form of whirlwind Carly, but Max can’t help but find himself charmed. When it’s clear they need to keep seeing each other – for the dogs’ sakes, of course – the pull between them becomes stronger. But Carly has plans that don’t include staying in Texas, so things would be doomed between them from the start…right? I liked Max from the start. He’s cute, nerdy, and has a good heart – all of those make him an irresistible hero to me. Carly is overwhelmed and a bit too much for me at the start. I could feel her stress and author Julia London made it understandable why she was so short with Max. However, there was so much chaos and so much bogging Carly down that it took until the halfway point for me to start seeing the character beneath the stress. At that point You Lucky Dog improved, becoming a more interesting romance. It never blew me away, but it was solid and I was rooting for Max and Carly to get their happily ever after by the end. A host of supporting characters both add and detract from the story. I loved Max’s father and brother and welcomed any scenes with his family. As for the boatload of high maintenance family and clients Carly came with… I think there were too many over the top voices that dragged the story down. It was like being in a room with everyone shouting when these characters appeared and it was just too much. Sure, it made Carly more sympathetic when everyone was unlikeable. But it also made me put down the book a number of times for a break. So while You Lucky Dog ended up being just an OK read for me, I will say that readers with more patience for over the top characters might enjoy this book a lot more than I did.

However, between the lukewarm romance and the writing, I was pretty indifferent towards the story. I am never a fan of long passages of text and exposition, and unfortunately You Lucky Dog was full of them. I can’t tell you how many chapters were dedicated to painstakingly describing every minute of Carly’s day in detail. I don’t care and it lends absolutely nothing to the story. I also wasn’t a fan of Max’s internal dialogue. Max is a neuroscientist, yes, but I found it super pretentious and annoying whenever he would think something like, “the norepinephrine levels were increasing throughout my body at the thought” instead of simply, “the thought was exciting me.” The book does shine a light on autism awareness which was really appreciated. The author did a great job showing some of the challenges of living with someone/having a family member with autism. Max’s brother, Jamie, plays an important role in this book and it felt honest and realistic. As a dog lover, I was really looking forward to You Lucky Dog. Who could resist that cover or the synopsis? But when it came down to it, I did not enjoy the writing style and the story itself was mediocre.

The premise of You Lucky Dog is so cute! Two basset-hounds get swapped and end up with different owners after their dog-walker is arrested.

The premise of You Lucky Dog is so cute! Two basset-hounds get swapped and end up with different owners after their dog-walker is arrested. The two pups could not be more different in temperament and Carly immediately notices that the energetic dog waiting for her at home is not her usually calm Baxter. Turns out, Hazel, aforementioned energetic dog, belongs to Max, a neuroscience professor. In the process of getting their respective pets back, Max and Carly find themselves being attracted to each other and forge a friendship. Their romance was pretty low-key. Their attraction to each other was almost instant and so may not work for every reader. I thought they were cute together and I enjoyed the banter they shared. There's a lot going on with both of these characters. Carly desperately wants a publicist job in NYC. She is stuck working with 2 clients who don't make it easy for her. She also faces financial issues and may have to move out of her beloved little cottage. Not to mention, she also has to deal with her parents, who are a piece of work. Max is up for tenure at his university but he has some tough competition. Max also has an autistic brother that his father is taking care of. I appreciated the insight into families handling adult autistic children and how it can impact the different relationships around you. It did feel like there was a bit too much going on with them in their own lives at times, which took away from the romance. Now the real stars of this book were Baxter and Hazel, the dogs. They were so adorable and just the best addition to You Lucky Dog. All in all, You Lucky Dog was a sweet story and I enjoyed my time with it. The puppies will definitely have you smiling as will the romance. :)

    You Lucky Dog is the latest romantic comedy from York Times bestselling author Julia London. Carly Kenney is struggling, her life and career seem to be stifling her.

Can these two fig You Lucky Dog is the latest romantic comedy from York Times bestselling author Julia London. Carly Kenney is struggling, her life and career seem to be stifling her. To make matters worse her sister has saddled her with a depressed basset hound. Max Sheffington is on the fast track to tenure, he’s content with his life and his dog. When the two dogs are accidentally swapped he meets Carly and is intrigued. But Carly wants to move and Max is preparing to cement his life as it is. Can these two figure out how they fit into each other’s lives? This book has gone on a lot of Summer Reading lists, and I was excited to pick it up based on the cover and the blurb. I’m always up for a good rom-com that feels light and easy to read and I’m a sucker for a dog on the cover. I loved Max, the sexy bespectacled professor and his charming dog Hazel. Max is the exactly perfect kind of sweet and nerdy hero that I want to read in a rom-com. I had a harder time connecting with Carly, who felt both too much and not enough for me. She was constantly put upon by her family and felt taken advantage of, and yet she didn’t really ever step up to them and take control of her life. The author included an excellent story line about Max’s brother and his autism. Her representation of Jamie felt very well developed and a good representation of how families deal with the challenges of raising children with autism. I hated Max’s dad and the way he seemed to be able to drop Jamie whenever it was inconvenient for him. Luckily, Max was a wonderful brother and his treatment of Jamie felt honest and real. Both Carly and Max’s families play a large role in this book which really took me out of their romance. When I read romance I want to be absorbed in the love story and all the extra family drama felt manufactured to create the “black moment” towards the end of the book. This external drama also slows down the plot for me and really made me less interested in the last half of the book. I think if the author had just stuck to the problem of their jobs the midpoint turn wouldn’t have felt so slow and cumbersome. The lead up to the romance between Carly and Max was super sexy and interesting. I enjoyed their “dates” with the dogs and the chemistry leading up to the sexy times was wonderful. I wanted more time between these two, I liked seeing them fall in love and it’s that chemistry that we need to sustain us through some of the tougher elements of the story. I personally am not a fan of this trend of adding a lot of drama to rom-coms as it only serves to slow down an otherwise quick and fun read. I enjoyed their banter, the dogs, and the secy times and I could have done without the plot around their families. Overall, this was a decently fun read that was light and fluffy with a decent amount of steam. Fans of Jasmine Guilory, Sally Thorne, or Emily Henry’s latest rom-coms will probably also love this book. ~ Lindsey

    ARC received from Netgalley for an honest review I was hooked by the cover and the dogs in this story, and I wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I didn't love it. I did like it, however I did not feel this one at all. I didn't really feel any emotion from either Max or Carly. And for most of the time I felt like Carly was just phoning it in and was a doormat for everyone around her. Baxter and Hazel saved this one for me. I couldn't help but smile every time they were on the page.

    This cover was everything and more! I totally loved it and enjoyed it. It focuses on two different characters (Max and Carly) with dogs with totally different personalities who swap dogs thanks to a very unreliable dog sitter *sigh**** but well it was such a cute book. I loved it so much xxx

There was something about it, though, that was lacking the magic. Maybe it was passion between the main characters? They were both level-headed, and the romance a smooth development. I don't know why, but I just felt a disconnect between their relationship development and the eventual "I-love-you's." Nevertheless, the premise sets it up to be a light-hearted and sweet romantic read that's perfect for a summer day.

    Any cover with two adorable dogs on it will always draw my interest and Baxter and Hazel more than live up to their cuteness. In fact, they pretty much steal every scene they're in. It's clear the author has a great love for, and experience with, dogs. They're the catalyst that brings Max and Carly together and keeps their relationship moving forward.

In fact, they pretty much steal every scene they're in. It's clear the author has a great love for, and experience with, dogs. They're the catalyst that brings Max and Carly together and keeps their relationship moving forward. By the end of the book, I wanted to adopt both of them. Some of the other characters, not so much. Carly and Max are both likable characters - okay, Carly is pretty annoying at the beginning but she grows into her likability - and though they may seem an unlikely pair at first, London deftly guides them along the path to eventual friendship with the potential for more. It's a sweet, low-key romantic journey, with a happy ending, but, as this is a romantic comedy, not a contemporary romance, it takes a bit of a back seat to everything else going on in their lives, especially Carly's. Both are at turning points in their careers, with Max on a tenure track at the university and Carly trying to salvage her sagging PR business while keeping her dreams of a New York career alive (she has two clients, neither of which is doing anything to help further those goals). A great deal of the story focuses on Carly's clients and career. Then there are the families. Honestly, I don't blame Carly for wanting to move to New York. With her family, I'd be setting my sights much further. Like, maybe Australia. As for Max's family, I felt London did a credible job of portraying an adult character with Autism (Max's brother) and both the joys and challenges of living with a person with special needs. I liked Max's father and brother a whole lot more than anyone in Carly's family, especially her mother. Carly's sister may have been annoying but I couldn't find one single redeeming quality in her mother. And I looked really hard. Overall, I enjoyed Carly's journey and was happy with the decisions she made, as well as how they came about. The author could have taken an easier path with her but it wouldn't have felt as authentic to her character. Because of that, I was confident she would move forward with no regrets and that her relationship with Max would be stronger because of it. I liked Max's nerdy sweetness and how he and Carly balance one another. I liked his relationship with his brother and his determination to support, encourage, and protect those he loves. And I absolutely adored the dogs. *ARC received for fair and unbiased review

Just because I received this free does not mean my review is not honest. Y’all know I only believe in honest reviews.😉 Can I just say how much I LOVED this book? This book had such fabulous things in it. Hot guy? Check. Dogs? Check. Autism rep? Check. First off, I love how this book was different than other romance/ rom-coms. Does it still fit those categories? Yes! But it also drew in more diversity with the autism. As some of y’all may, or may not, know, my brother has autism. So to see autism getting seen more in books has me excited! Just because someone is different doesn’t mean it’s bad! Everyone should be represented in books! One thing that did get on my nerves, and the reason this is not a five star read, is how they treated Max’s brother Jaime. Jaime has autism and is heavily dependent on his father to help care for himself. My brother is completely dependent upon my family and I, so this hit home for me. I didn’t agree with how Toby would handle Jaime sometimes. He basically blew his son off to go marry this woman he’s only known a few weeks— was even willing to pul his son is a disability home. While I have nothing against home for people with autism, sometimes it’s a good thing— I just did not agree with how the father handled it. He totally disregarded Jaime, and I felt like he just wanted him off his hands. To be honest, it made me fairly sick. Is having a child with autism hard? Heck to the yes! But my family would never treat or throw my brother away like that. It just stuck under my skin. Another thing that got on my nerves was Carly’s family. Good Lord those people are so annoying! I felt stressed just reading about them. Carly’s mother is insane, plainly not caring for her family and nearly destroying Max’s in the process. Ugh! And Mia? Help me Father God..🤦🏻‍♀️ She needs to get her children under control. Like babe, take a chill pill and control your kids! You can’t let them do whatever, you know? Dunno, maybe I was raised in a different time.🤷🏻‍♀️ Other than those two minor things, I absolutely adored this book! I loved the pacing! I felt as if it were perfect for the book. I loved every aspect of the dogs in it and how Max even did neuroscience around dogs and autism. Love, love, love!❤️ Overall this books absolutely phenomenal and I highly recommend. Solid 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley Publishing Company for an E-ARC for an honest review. This was such a fun and breezy little romance novel.

I will admit that I didn't particularly like Carly at first, but as I continued to read I found her rather endearing.

I will admit that I didn't particularly like Carly at first, but as I continued to read I found her rather endearing. Max was utterly adorable in his nerdy self, and I felt that these two really did work well together. I also liked how their relationship progressed naturally. They started off as two dog owners who had their dogs switched then somwhat acquaintances that had doggy play dates to friends to lovers. Their chemistry was a bit lacking, but I really did enjoy them as a couple. One of the major downfalls with this book was the drama between Max's dad and Carly's mom (who is the absolute worst person in this entire book). I didn't think it was needed to add more drama to Max's and Carly's story. Carly was very vocal about moving to NYC, and Max is up for tenure. That could have been enough to create some conflict between them, which after the forced drama between their parents, was the main reason for their "split up". Even then, it wasn't like they never spoke to each other again, and they respected each other's decisions and boundaries. The end decision Carly makes was all on her own, and I really appreciated the author for that. The other downfall is Carly's family. They brought the book down for me. I hated all of them, especially her mother and her sister, who apparently just loves to get pregnant and have children like they're accessories but can't actually handle them. She angered me the most. I did appreciate the Autism rep, but I will warm people that they use "disorder" quite a lot when referencing Jamie's (Max's brother) autism. It is technically in the DSM-V as a neurocognitive disorder, but there's a lot of personal beliefs regarding that. If you have Austim or know someone with Autism, please be cautious. It may be a hot topic or a button for you. Also, the treatment of Jamie by his father was also appalling, but I tried to think of them as a family unit, and how being Jamie's caregiver had to be exhausting for a 60-something year old man. I'm not excusing it, and there were times where I was like, "Wow, f*ck you, dad," but it did push the story along with Jamie's story arc, and it does have a lovely happy ending. All in all, if you like dogs and breezy romances, this is one to check out. It's the perfect book for the summer.

    I love the premise and the cover of You Lucky Dog by Julia London. Both are so darn cute! The book is a little bit romantic comedy, a little family drama, and the third-person narrative makes for unique romance fiction. The main characters, Carly and Max, have a few things in common. They both own basset hounds. They both have difficult family situations. Lastly, they have the same dog walker, who has difficulty staying out of trouble with the law.

It’s not hard to see where this is going! The basset hounds get mixed up and returned to the wrong owners, and the fun ensues as owners and dogs deal with the mix up amidst their usual life chaos. I liked Max, and his devotion to his family is admirable. His struggle to balance his family’s needs and his attempt to secure tenure as a neuroscience professor is stressful. Carly is a publicist with big dreams and too-few clients. Her financial issues and difficult parents are not quite as compelling a story to follow. While I found Max and Carly’s romance and banter to be cute, I didn’t feel much chemistry between these very different people. I did not care for the use of third-person POV in the telling of this story. However, I loved, loved, loved Baxter and Hazel, the mixed up basset hounds; they were the stars of the tail tale.

But from the moment that Carly knocked on Max's door, I was hooked! Carly and Max seem like oil and water at first. But the more they open up to each other, the more that attraction and underlying chemistry sizzled. Max is the perfect mix of 'brain scientist' nerd and awkward that I could not help but fall for him right along with Carly. And Carly was such a boss chaos-coordinator! She was wound so tight and just tried so hard. I did find her stiffness to be a little off-putting in the beginning, but I came to understand that was all part of the 'tough and together' appearance she always felt that she needed to convey. One thing that I really liked about this book was the honesty in the relationships and how they just faced the hard truths head on. They didn't drag it out, they accepted that sometimes the timing of stuff just sucks. It made the ending so much sweeter when Carly realizes how she can have her cake and eat it too. I will definitely be recommending this one to everyone that will listen and it was one of my favorite books that I read this month! Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley for my advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I was really looking forward to reading this story. Not only is the cover adorable, but the whole idea of a romance building all because your dog walker returned the wrong dog to you just sounds too cute. However, with that being said, this one just didn't work for me. The main character was a little annoying for my taste and seemed very conceited and full of herself. There was also a lot of inner-dialog that just seemed very choppy and disorienting. So, I never fully connected with the characte I was really looking forward to reading this story.

There was also a lot of inner-dialog that just seemed very choppy and disorienting. So, I never fully connected with the characters or their story because of it. In all honesty, I wish this story focused more on the switched dogs, than everything else. I kind of felt like that whole scenario took a backseat in this story. I don't know about you, but if let's say, I had someone who watched my dog while I was gone and I came home to find that there was a different dog in my house... I would flip out. I wouldn't just shrug it off and go about my day wondering when my crazy dog-sitter will return my calls. No, I would be a panicking mess wondering where my dog was. So, I was a little taken back when Max just sort of seems fine with it all and just brings "his" dog to work like nothing is wrong. Like I said, I really wanted to like this story. The cover and the sound of it seemed like it would be a sure win for me. However, I had a hard time connecting with the characters and found myself not really wanting to pick up the book because of it.

    I thought this was a great RomCom! Hazel and Baxter are Bassett Hounds that accidentally get returned to the wrong owners due to a mistake by their mutual dog walker. It takes a few days for them to track down each other and exchange their dogs. Turns out Carly’s sort of depressed dog, Baxter, really enjoys spending time with Hazel, Max’s dog, so they end up spending more time together for the dogs’ sake (nothing to do with a mutual attraction, wink wink, nudge nudge).

Along with some great dog scenes, I enjoyed both Carly and Max’s individual storylines. Carly was laid off from her publicist job and is working with a couple clients on her own as she job hunts. Almost 30, life is not going as planned. Max is a neuroscientist and is hoping to get tenure. They also both have lively extended families who play a role in the story. I really enjoyed the light-hearted feel of this book despite the multiple storylines. It definitely kept me engaged. I also liked the witty banter. There is a low steam level which worked for me. Overall it’s a slower burn, friends to lovers kind of romance. And they were brought together by their dogs which is awesome! A great lazy weekend read!

However Carly and Max are both in different directions of their lives currently. Can they make it work for the dogs and for themselves? I really enjoyed the writing in this book. The meet cute of the characters and their initial hatred for each other drew me in. I am always a fan of those tropes. I really liked the way Carly wasn’t going to just sacrifice her career for a man and was willing to put herself first. Another aspect I loved was that Max’s brother was autistic and the author really tried to educate readers on how Max worked with triggers for his brother and other ways to support someone on the spectrum. This is definitely a cute book and the fact that it involves dogs makes it even better!

They meet when the dog walker they hired is arrested, and their dogs are accidentally switched. This a funny and charming story about meeting the right person at the wrong time, and as always, Julia London writes a book that will have you hoping for their HEA even when it seems everything is lost. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend reading it not only are Carly and Max delightful, so are their dogs, Hazel and Baxter. Medium Steam.
