First Thought when Finished: Rumor Has It is my favorite in the Animal Magnetism series so far.
Overall Thoughts:I loved how awkward Kate was and how guarded Griffin happened to be. This book just hit all my contemporary romance triggers and I enjoyed every minute of it. I also love that this book really delved into PTSD and how it can impact a person. I thought Jill tackled that with brilliance and didn’t make it a handicap for Griffin. All around this was a great book!
Narrated by Karen White/Length 9 hrs and 17 mins.
I enjoy Karen’s narration of the Animal Magnetism series. I have enjoyed every one and look forward to the next one! I think she a great match with Jill’s writing.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
