Emmaline Ryan has always been the smart, shy girl who plays it safe. But all that’s gotten her is a divorce and a mountain of debt to pay off courtesy of her ex-husband. Needless to say, she stopped believing in miracles and fairy tales a long time ago—except now she’s in desperate need of one if she wants to save her family’s animal rescue. She knows just where to go for help, but that means putting her faith in the hands of a man who once broke her heart without even realizing it.

Garrett Coleman met the girl of his dreams when he was just eight years old—only he never told her. But that was years ago. Now, Garrett has become a reluctant social media star—the shirtless #HotDoc and #SexyVet who saves scared and helpless animals. Sure, it’s been great for business, but he’d give anything for people to see the real him, preferably with a shirt on. When a visit home to Magnolia Sound has him running into the shy girl he left behind, he sees his chance at the future he never thought he deserved.

Unfortunately, he’s not the only one back in town, and wooing Emmaline just became a lot more complicated. A lot has changed since he’s been gone, and Garrett is going to have to prove that he’s up to the challenge. Emmaline might still be the sweet and quiet girl he left behind, but he’s not sure she’s willing to wait.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
This audiobook, narrated by , was so fun to read! I loved the small town theme and of course the fact that it’s around animals, makes A+ in my book! I mean seriously. Emmaline’s dog was named Axl and one of our own mini dachshunds is named Axl. It was fate that I listened to this. It’s definitely a 4 star read/listen. The narrator does a fantabulous job making Emmaline and Garrett come to life for the reader.

About Samantha Chase

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of contemporary romance, Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return in November 2011.

Although she waited until she was in her 40s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

With almost fifty titles currently to her name, she has no plans to slow down. You won’t find her books with the erotica or paranormal titles, all of her works are pure contemporary romances.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook, wearing a tiara while playing with her sassy pug Maylene…oh, and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
