Review: Tracking You

Book Review: Tracking You, by Kelly Moran, 5 stars


Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.
Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: May 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: Tracking You is book two in the Redwood Ridge by Kelly Moran, right after Puppy Love and before New Tricks, though it can be read as a stand alone (I've mixed the order of the books and still managed not to miss anything). Of the series, Tracking You and New Tricks are my favorites.

In Tracking You I especially loved the fact that Gabby and Flynn have been friends since forever and can't really function one without the other. Seeing them discover their deeper feelings was both funny and sweet at the same time. And bittersweet sometimes too, especially when Flynn tries to hold back, to make sure Gabby isn't somehow biased by his handicap or by the fact that she has been by his side all her life. 

The part where Flynn actually makes a speech almost made me cry. For a deaf man, what he did took a lot of courage and though throughout the book I sometimes doubted the easiness of his speech, I found that that particular part of the story conveyed just the right message and that's something I really love in a book - besides the happily ever after, of course.


Happy Monday,
