#17: The Love Dog - Elsa Watson (With Giveaway)

(Affiliate link)


Fired from her job as a paralegal, Samantha Novak is in trouble. When Telltale, a Hollywood tabloid, asks her to write an expose on the reality television dating show, The Love Dog, Samantha is thrilled. She’s always dreamed of being a writer, and the fat paycheck won’t hurt. After being recently left at the altar, she’s not too keen on love either.  
Hired as the canine star’s handler, Samantha finds that digging up dirt on set is harder then she thought. Apollo, the show’s star, is a sweet golden retriever who takes his job as the “love dog” very seriously. He only wants to help couples fall in love and make everyone on set happy. Mason Hall, the show’s producer and leading man, is down to earth, charming, and... very attractive.
If Samantha doesn’t reveal to the world that the reality show isn’t exactly “real,” her new career will be over before it starts. But when she falls in love with Apollo and Mason, will she still have the heart to expose The Love Dog’s dirty secrets?
Elsa Watson returns with another charming "tail"!

My review for Dog Days


Review:
I liked this book better than the first only because the story had more of the dogs' viewpoint than the previous book. That is what I loved most, Appollos' viewpoint. Appollo is the beautiful Golden Retriever on the cover, and he is the sweetest dog ever. Well, after my Bella and Ewok, of course.
I really liked the other two viewpoints, Sam, the female love interest and Mason, the male love interest. They were both interesting characters for their own reasons, and I liked the sweet romance that blossomed between them.
The other parts of the story were fun to read and I appreciate that I didn't feel like I had read anything like it before. With the amount of books I read, that is saying something...
So for all you romance fans out there who have  a soft spot for the canine companion, give this book a try. It's going to warm your cockles.

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one.

Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
