Erin Timms took a new job as a veterinarian in Sunshine, Colorado for two important reasons: to get away from her ex, and to give herself a chance at a new life. But when devastating news of her ex follows her there, she begins to think she has made a terrible mistake.
Tall, stunning-looking Jon Miles had only one goal: to save the mountain canyon where Sunshine is located from businessmen who want to exploit it. But how can he do that when he is already an outcast?
There was nothing to suggest they’d ever meet, much less strike a spark of red-hot romance. Except that Erin can never turn away a stray. . .
.Heather’s Review – 4 out of 5 Stars!
Let me start off by saying that I love animals and I love books. With that being said, I knew I would like this book.
Erin Timms is starting a new life in a small town. Her ex-boyfriend that she supported through medical school broke up with her when he graduated. Later, she found out that he cheated on her with one of her so-called friends. She ends up moving from Dallas, TX to Sunshine, Colorado to see if small-town life is better for her. Erin started working with the local vet in hopes that when he retired she would take over and buy his practice.
Jon Miles is in Sunshine, CO on business. He is currently dating Ashleigh, who is the daughter of the CEO of a resort in town. He is trying to save the small town from the resort overtaking it, and will do anything to make sure there is no more damage to the canyon.
One Friday night right after the vet closed for the night, there was banging on the front door by a man holding a dog who is obviously hurt. Not being able to turn them away Erin opened the door and let them in. John Miles explained that the Golden Retriever had been hit by a car and that the dog didn’t belong to him. He doesn’t mention that Ashleigh is the one who hit the dog and told him that she wished she would have killed the mangy dog when she hit him. Thank goodness Jon is an animal lover and did everything in his power to help the dog they call Max, including pay for all of the medical expenses. They have an instant attraction, but Erin will not give him the time of day since she knows he has a girlfriend.
With fighting the new resort, Erin helps Jon gain the trust of some of the shareholders, but will it be enough? Since Jon has obvious feelings for Erin, he continues to pursue her, but with her own past of being cheated on, she does not want to get involved. Between all of this is a beautiful love story. Erin is so afraid to trust Jon but she just can’t help it and falls in love with him. They both learned some lessons along the way but most importantly, they learned to believe in each other.
There were some hot sex scenes in this book so I would recommend 18 and over. I will be recommending this book to a lot of people I know that love dogs. Max brought Erin and Jon together.
I also want to say that I love that even though Erin and Jon were just friends at the time, Jon was so sure they would be together that he had her help him pick his house and furniture so that she and Max would like it and feel comfortable there. To me, that’s the stuff that matters. Caring about the other person enough to want to do anything to make them happy. This was a great read. This was my first book by Natasha Stories. I will be looking into her other books now.
