Puppy Love by Lucy Gilmore

These adorable service puppies
are matchmakers in the making...

When Sophie Vasquez and her sisters dreamed up Puppy Promise—their service puppy training school—it was supposed to be her chance to bring some good into the world. But how can she expect to do anything when no one will take her seriously?

Enter Harrison Parks: a rough, gruff, take-no-bull wildlife firefighter in need of a diabetic service dog. He couldn't be a more unlikely fit for Sophie or Bubbles—the sweet Pomeranian she knows will be his perfect partner—but when Sophie insists he give them both a shot, something unexpected happens: he listens. Even better, he keeps on listening, even as Sophie and Bubbles turn his lonely, uber-masculine world upside-down.

As it turns out, they all have something to prove... and more than enough room in their hearts for a little puppy love.

To be honest, this cover is what drew me in. I have a soft spot for Pomeranians, and who doesn't love to see a handsome man handling a cute little pup?!?

When you think of a service dog, what do you picture in your mind? Maybe a German Shepherd, a Labrador, or Golden Retriever. When Harrison is in the market for a new service animal, he's referred to Puppy Promise. The Vasquez sisters run the service animal training school, they have a wide variety of pups in training and the expertise to match a dog to individual needs.

Sophie has had a rough go of life, not experiencing it the way most people do. She has the need to prove herself to not only her family, but to herself, and Harrison is her special project.

Harrison is the big, alpha male. He's a hero in his everyday life, but a hermit when not at work. Social niceties are not in his repertoire, and he doesn't believe he has the ability to love.

When Sophie and Bubbles integrate themselves into Harrison's life, everyone has something to learn. Some learn that life is more than their insecurities... and maybe, just maybe, love can truly heal.

I truly enjoyed this story more than I thought I would. I liked Sophie and her fiery nature, she was the perfect complement to Harrison's burly, grumpiness. Of all the characters, though, Bubbles was my absolute favorite! This was a cute story, with great characters, that kept my attention all the way through. If you're looking for a relatively light-hearted, romantic story – look no further!
