Blurb: Needing a change of scene, Griffin Burke moves from Brisbane to Coolum Beach to start a new job. The beautiful white sand, aqua-coloured ocean, blue skies, and summer breezes are everything he longs for. What he finds is a mud-covered dog, lost and hungry, with a nametag and a phone number.
Dane Hughes is stuck in Surfers Paradise at a week-long work conference when he gets a phone call from his distraught mother. His dog, his fur baby, Wicket, has run away. Unable to leave and feeling helpless and miserable, he gets a text from a guy. “I think I found your dog…”
Griffin and Dane start talking, and Griffin agrees to look after Wicket until Dane can collect him. With a few days left before his new job starts, Griffin takes Wicket on some coastal adventures and sends Dane photos of their fun, and so the start of something new and kind of wonderful begins.
Griffin might have moved to Coolum in search of a new life, but what he finds is so much more. What he gets to keep just might take some four-legged help.
I loved this story. Yes, a story that had so little angst and was so full of sweet, furry goodness somehow fell into my favorites category. How did that happen? I usually prefer my love of the hard-won love stories, I love the tragic, star crossed lovers, and cheating…I love cheaters, too…but somehow, two guys and a dog going on adventures just wrapped itself around my heart and would not let go. I found myself grinning like a loon while reading this book, and I just could not help myself. This story is more than adorable, it is about finding your soulmate when you least expect it, and realizing he comes with a dog that likes adventures and looks like an Ewok.
Griffin and Dane and their dog, Wicket, are a package deal. But, before they become one, first Dane has to lose Wicket, and Griffin has to find him. The adventures, the text messages and photos, and the eventual meeting of these guys was beyond sweet. You are rooting for them because you just know that they belong together. And we aren’t wrong. The angst level is low to nonexistent, they communicate clearly (if not shyly, at first), and I loved Griffin’s famous landlady. Each individual aspect may not seem like anything special, but put together, this story is rock solid and makes your heart happy. I cannot recommend this book enough…enjoy!
Overall Impression: It was amazing!
