Model Behavior by Tricia Lynne

Even old dogs deserve a second chance at forever. Model Behavior by Tricia Lynne. Now Available.

This time around, they’ll both have to take risks to make it work.
Don't miss this fun and flirty second-chance contemporary romance.

Hayes Walker is screwed.

His body is giving out, his family is bleeding him dry, and he never prepared for life after football. When the Dallas Bulldogs offer him a coaching position instead of a returning roster spot, only two things keep him going—staying fit in case another football team picks him up, and spending time with a gray-faced Boxer at the Unlovabulls Dog Rescue.

Olive Russo is a woman who can walk through a kennel in a white pantsuit without getting a spot on her. The always organized PR pro will need her cool control when she’s forced to plan a fundraising gala for the Unlovabulls with the college boyfriend who turned her inside out. A decade ago, Hayes Walker broke her heart and sent Olive into a spiral of bad decisions that she’d rather her clients not know about. Now she is determined to keep the completely lickable Hayes off her to-do list—even if their chemistry is stronger than ever.

Dumping Olive was the worst decision Hayes ever made. When the amazing girl walks back into his life a full-fledged woman, he makes a play for her heart. But when Olive’s secrets are exposed and the NFL knocks on Hayes’s door, they’ll both need to leave their past where it belongs if they’re going to make it work the second time around.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series. I think you can read this as a standalone, but it would help to have the backstory to the shelter, and Brody's link to Hayes.

I really like Olive's chance to see that her perfect life is not a whole life. That being human makes her a better PR guru, not less of one. It comes at a lot of personal cost though, and we travel that journey with her. I also found the whole entry into the world of dog training fascinating and quite different to what I expected – it is fun how it is compared to coaching football players, especially the cues that are given off through movement.

Hayes let his mother ruin his budding relationship with Olive over a decade ago and seems in danger of doing it again. Thankfully he has a very good friend in Brody, and some tough love brings him back from the edge. We don't often see such blatant abuse from a mother to a son in stories, but it is a good reminder of how parents can do untold damage to their children.

Because they had history and chemistry, it was easy to believe that they would slip back into comfort with each other, as well as pull back in surprise at that ease. It made for compelling reading, and for a level of tension which hummed along waiting for the shoe to drop!

I will definitely be reading more of this series, as there are some delicious hints at who may be next, and I would love to catch up with Hayes and Olive as well as Brody and Lisa in the future.

Her laugh was a siren’s call, and I was starting to get too close to the rocks.
