I give Next Door Knight (Man’s Best Friend Book 2) by Nicole Flockton, 4 stars.
Kerry is now single and having to take care of her retired, injured father. When her father’s caretaker does not show up, Kerry must find an alternative. She cannot afford to lose her job. So she does something absolutely crazy — she asks the man next door, who she barely knows, if he will stay with her father for a few hours. Amazingly, he agrees. Sure, he could be a serial killer, but her dog likes him and she is never wrong. That’s good enough, right? Oh and has she mentioned how extremely hot he is?
Caleb is on injury leave from the military. But it wasn’t just physical pain he indured. He also lost his K-9 partner too. This has devastated him and he never wants to be near a dog again. But when he meets his sexy neighbor with the dog who won’t say no, he starts feeling things he hasn’t felt in a long time. But he can’t let himself feel these things. Can he?
This was a great book. I love animals, so I was looking forward to reading this. I haven’t read a book with a therapy dog in it like this, so I was even more impressed. The characters are great — they all have their own issues, but are fun too. Not to mention Willow herself is a force to be reckoned with. The story is great — sad at times, but realistic. You can definitely see these as people you would know and love.
If you like a fun romance with a furry little friend thrown in for more adventure, this book is for you.
