Review: Animal Magnetism


Sunshine, Idaho, is a small and sunny town—the perfect home for man and beast. Well, maybe not for man, as pilot-for-hire Brady Miller discovers when his truck is rear-ended by what appears to be Noah’s Ark.

As the co-owner of the town’s only kennel, Lilah Young has good reason to be distracted behind the wheel—there are puppies, a piglet, and a duck in her Jeep. But, she doesn’t find it hard to focus on the sexy, gorgeous stranger she’s collided with.

Lilah has lived in Sunshine all her life, and though Brady is just passing through, he has her abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire. It’s Brady’s nature to resist being tied down, but there’s something about Lilah and her menagerie—both animal and human—that keeps him coming back for more…
Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: February 2014 (for the Kindle version)

Offensive content: this book is pretty heavy on the sex scenes. They are not more graphic than in other Jill Shalvis' books, but they are recurrent throughout all the book, so consider yourself warned.


Ok, so this is not a new book, and is, in fact, another classical example of me reading a series in backward order, since I've read books 2,3 and 4 some time ago and somehow, always missed book 1, Animal Magnetism. But, to be honest, I'm not very sorry I did, since now I have an excuse to go back and re-read all the others.
Animal Magnetism has the usual quality that Jill Shalvis has gotten us used to, though here's nothing particularly new to the storyline. It's a bit heavier on the sex scenes, but it's still immensely enjoyable.
The story flows consistently, the characters  are all well portrayed and you just have to love all the animals in the book, from Twinkles the dog, to Abigail the duck, and to Lulu, the sheep that thinks she's a dog. For the animal interaction alone it's worth to read this book. 

Jill Shalvis' style of writing hooks you from page one, right until the very end. There are no slow moments, no unnecessary information. All in all, easy to read and sure to account for some well spent winter evenings.  

Happy readings,
