What do you do when an NHL player steals your dog and won’t give it back?
Maggie Hudson made a heartbreaking decision nine years ago that has haunted her ever since. To fill the hole in her life, she showers her rescue dog with love and affection. But one day, Kirby goes missing.
Six months later, NHL player Spencer Corbett is astonished when Maggie shows up on his doorstep demanding her dog back. He’d found the pug on the side of the road, collarless and in bad shape. But even when confronted with hard evidence she’s the dog’s owner, he begs her to reconsider. His own elderly dog is on her last legs and Kirby has given her a new lease on life.
After Maggie relents, Spencer can’t help but fall for her. Not only is she the most compassionate and selfless person he’s ever met, she’s witty, intelligent and sexier than sin and doesn’t even realize. What starts out as a friendship quickly turns into more, but when a woman from Spencer’s past throws everything into chaos, their fragile relationship is put to the ultimate test.
Animal Attraction may be read and enjoyed as a standalone sports romance!
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
But Maggie’s insecurities about never being enough for a popular pro athlete like Spencer are magnified when his beautiful ex enters the picture — along with the son that Spencer never knew he had. Since Maggie has some health issues, it just compounds her insecurities. I kind of felt like that was an unnecessary plot twist. I thought that there could have been enough drama between Spencer and Maggie with just her insecurities without throwing a kid and ex into the mix.
Overall, this was a cute contemporary romance. I have not read any other books in the SF Dragons series, but the focus was on Spencer and Maggie, with the other players being his teammates more than anything else, so I did not feel like I was missing pieces of the story. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
