Article Type: Audiobook Review, Book Review
About the Book: Sunshine, Idaho, is a quiet ranching town that provides a perfect refuge for injured animals . . . and sometimes, people. And veterinarian Dell Connelly suspects there’s a reason his clinic’s uberefficient receptionist has taken shelter here.Jade Bennett couldn’t be happier to escape her well-meaning but smothering family and their expectations, not to mention the big-city jungle. There’s nothing like working with animals, having a forlorn, grumpy stray kitten make its home under her desk . . . or enjoying the gorgeous views of her ruggedly sexy boss to help her forget her past.But Dell’s seductive, alluring ways have sparked an uncontrollable desire, one Jade hadn’t expected to feel again. And though Dell has never had time for love, Jade’s strength and sass is the kind of call no red-blooded male can resist.

First Thought When Finished: Dell + Jade = Fun and Hotness!
Story Talk: This is the second entry in Animal Magnetism series and with each book I fall a little more in love! The fact that we get to know and love this town in each book just adds to the richness. I am an animal lover, rescue enthusiast so part of me was going to love the premise by default. The other part of me fell in love with the way Jill wrote the community. She built the story so that the characters would shine. It was fun, heart-warming, and beautifully told.
Character Talk: I loved Dell and Jade! They were a fantastic mix of fun, a little damaged, and a whole lot of heart. I felt they were both where they needed to be and the fact that they knew each other for a year made it that much more fun! Their love of animals, Dell’s want for Jade to feel strong, and Jade’s need to organize his life had me smiling the entire story!
