Review: Puppy Love

Book Review: Puppy Love, by Kelly Moran, 4 stars

✩✩

After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients.Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.
Cade O'Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he's struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she's working for his family's clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance.He might just have a chance at convincing Avery--and her too-guarded heart--that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: February 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: Puppy Love is book one in the Redwood Ridge by Kelly Moran, though I've read it after going through New Tricks (book three) first - which isn't really a problem since they can be read as stand alones easily. I did find New Tricks a lot better than Puppy Love, though.


Don't get me wrong, there's nothing seriously wrong with this book, but there's nothing really outstanding either. If you discount the fact that Avery is trying to overcome the emotional scars of her fist marriage and Hailey's issues with autism, there isn't much of a plot. It's just boy meets girl, boy has a reputation as a playboy and doesn't want to settle down, girl has a troubled romantic past and doesn't want to go there again either, fast forward to the happily ever after.

So, while Puppy Love is still an entertaining and fairly quick read, it doesn't deserve more than four stars.


Happy Monday,
