I don’t want to touch it.
I really, really don’t.
He’s egotistical, crass, and my patient’s owner—which makes him totally off limits.
Yep, that’s right. He owns the wiener I’m currently working on.
A wiener dog—get your dirty mind out of the gutter.
I’ve also worked on his spoodle, his cocker-shitzu, and a cheagle—don’t ask. (And no, it’s not a sexual position.)
It doesn’t help that he also represents most of my joint-owned veterinary practice’s small clientele. We’d only just opened the doors a few months ago, and in he strode with a yelping Taco Terrier. One haughty look at our sparkling new facilities, he’d demanded royal treatment, even though I was currently finger deep up a squalling tom cat.
Ever since then, he expects me to serve him.
Any time. All the time.
Him and his revolving zoo of dogs.
One of these days, I’m going to swat him for being such a pompous ass but I can’t deny the way he handles his charges makes me want to see past the ‘do as I say and don’t ask questions’ barking exterior.
But then last week…he caught me staring at his um, cough, package.
His bossy commands switched to a cocky smirk.
He gave me permission to do something I promised myself I would never ever do.
I can touch it.
If I want…

My Review

I think this was the only time I gave a Pepper Winters book less than 5 stars but it came pretty close. I really tried to, but the FMC, Vesper, got on my nerves one too many times.

I loved that this was such a departure from what I've come to know and love from this author. There was none of the darkness, no suspense, but the underlying theme of love still remained and boy can this author right about love. This story was light and sweet and refreshing, and the only angst was that which the characters created within themselves.


So swoon-worthy that I have to repeat myself!

He was such a lovable character. So freaking sweet, sarcastic, humble, sexy, gorgeous, generous, compassionate, etc. I LOVED him so much. He had devoted his life to rescuing animals and it only served to further endear him to me. Vesper was a vet who had a huge heart for animals as well. Together they just worked. They fit and their union was almost seamless.

Can't Own This is next and I'm so excited to see what PW has done with it. The blurb for it is so interesting!
