Discover what makes Lucy Gilmore an instant fan favorite with this unforgettably funny enemies-to-lovers romcom starring:
• a grumpy dog show judge
• a determined former beauty queen
• and a Golden Retriever more interested in stealing bacon than winning Best in Show.
Ruby Taylor gave up pageant life the day she turned eighteen and figured she'd never look back. But when an old friend begs her to show her beloved Golden Retriever at the upcoming Canine Classic, Ruby reluctantly straps on her heels and gets to work.
If only she knew exactly what the adorably lazy lump of a dog was getting her into.
If there's one thing veterinarian Spencer Wilson knows in this world, it's dogs. Human beings are an entirely different animal. Especially stubborn, gorgeous women clearly in way over their heads. As judge for the local dog show, Spencer advises Ruby to quit while she still can, but her old fervor for winning has returned―and she wants to show the stern, broody-eyed judge that she's more than just a pretty face. In the end, she'll show him who's best in show.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Have you ever read a book that when you finish you simply can’t remember what you read? This was that book for me.
I was super excited to get into this book because it said enemies-to-lovers, which is like my calling, and a dog?! It sounded like my dream book. However, it just didn’t fit with me.
In this book you meet Ruby, and a woman who has left her pageant days behind and is now trying to enter her friend’s dog into the contest. I honestly couldn’t explain to you about her character because I was just so confused!
The beginning of this book had me doing a head tilt and left me wondering what the heck was happening. Maybe it’s the writing style and I’m just not familiar with it. All of a sudden a woman is trying to enter the dog into the canine contest, and then a guy comes along and says he’s the judge, but he’s actually not, he’s the twin of the judge?
I truly don’t know what else to say about the book. There was some spice from what I can remember. Maybe someone else will be able to understand this book more than I could, but it just personally wasn’t for me.
