My Review: This book immediately captured my attention; adorable dogs on the cover - check, small town atmosphere - check, secret lovers - check. I had a lot of fun reading this book, it definitely gave me modern day Romeo and Juliet vibes with family feuds, verbal duels, and a lot of longing lovers. Luckily, this is a contemporary romance so we get that happily ever after and it doesn't take a turn for the tragic. I really enjoyed the characters, Taylor's reluctant return but still full of love for her family. Josh just kind of gets sucked into the turmoil without wanting it but by family blood. I also loved that the dogs played such a role in the story, it kind of makes me want huskies! The family feud was really played up a lot but Martin also manages to poke a bit of fun at it by showing through various characters how ridiculous generation long feuds end up being. All in all this was a fun and enjoyable read and I am looking forward to more books in the series!
My Rating: I was really drawn in by the cover of this book and was intrigued by the synopsis, and the story did not disappoint. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for more in this small town and hope to see the family feud broken down! I give it a rating of Four Paws.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. The above is my honest review and opinion.
