How do you start over when the biggest mistake of your life has more than one million views?
Forget diamonds—the internet is forever. Social media consultant Isla Thompson learned that lesson the hard way when she went viral for all the wrong reasons. A month later, Isla is still having nightmares about the moment she ruined a young starlet’s career and made herself the most unemployable influencer in Manhattan. But she doesn’t have the luxury of hiding until she’s no longer Instagram poison. Not when her fourteen-year-old sister, Dani, needs Isla to keep a roof over their heads. So, she takes the first job she can get: caring for Camilla, a glossy-maned, foul-tempered hellhound.
After a week of ferrying Camilla from playdates to pet psychics, Isla starts to suspect that the dachshund’s bark is worse than her bite—just like her owner, Theo Garrison. Isla has spent her career working to make people likable and here’s Theo—happy to hide behind his reputation as a brutish recluse. But Theo isn’t a brute—he’s sweet and funny, and Isla should not see him as anything but the man who signs her paychecks. Because loving Theo would mean retreating to his world of secluded luxury, and Isla needs to show Dani that no matter the risk, dreams are always worth chasing.
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.
The Dachshund Wears Prada is a cute, light, contemporary romance with the sunshine and grump trope! I could easily see this book turning into a Hallmark movie. If you’re looking for a quick, easy romance read, then look no further.
I’ve never read any books by this author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. If I’m being honest, this book fell a bit flat for me. The writing style didn’t work for me. I didn’t become invested in the story until around the 60% mark. Before that, I found it easy to put this book down. I didn’t have an intense urge to keep reading. That being said, I encourage everyone to give this book a try! I think you’ll all enjoy Camilla the dachshund’s shenanigans!
