Can you ever really forget the one who got away?

August Merriweather has always been good with animals. In fact, she’s known as Manhattan’s Dog Whisperer. Men, on the other hand? Not so much. She’s been falling for the wrong guys ever since her regrettable crush on Keaton Sax, older brother of her best friend, Leah, and the biggest jerkface this side of the Hudson.

Now an emotionally closed off widower, Keaton has become one of the most formidable men on Wall Street, but August knows his secret. He’s not driven by sales targets and bonus checks—Keaton just wants to give his family the security they never had. So when Leah asks Keaton to wrangle her over-the-top, dramatic husky at a weekend talent competition, Keaton says yes…and begs August to help him win the event for Leah.

Between obstacle courses, Molly’s husky temper tantrums and a cabin with just one bed, August is having a blast. Away from the pressure to have a “perfect life” with the “right guy,” she finds herself relaxing and getting to see the softer side of the man she once loved. Is this just a temporary truce? Or could Keaton finally be the right guy at the right time?


Just enough drama to counterbalance the laugh out loud humor! The final book in Stefanie London’s Paws in the City series is sure to please rom-com fans when a diva husky puts her paw down and hilarity ensues. I felt like there was a bit of a plot hole surrounding Keaton’s late wife that could have used some better back story building, but other than that the storyline flowed well with lots of humor, romance and affection. I really enjoyed this series!

August is an easy character to like. Her friendship with Leah is heartfelt and a powerful stability in her life. I enjoyed watching her keep Keaton on his toes even while falling under his spell.

Keaton is a sweetheart who will do just about anything for the sister he adores. I loved watching him fall hard and have to admit that he could love again.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a slap stick rom-com with lots of pet hijinx stealing the show. Sincere characters and satisfying happily ever afters.
