There’s been little love in H.D. “Hound Dog” Fisher’s life since the death of his beloved mom when he was a boy. Bounced around the foster care system, he ran away as soon as he could… and took the foster dog with him. As far as he’s concerned, only dogs have no ulterior motive, never hold a grudge, and offer unconditional love. Now he helps run a no-kill shelter and leaves relationships where they belong: in the back room.
“Bean” Alexander settled in Kansas City to open his coffee shop after years of traveling. He never expected to open his heart too. When a man with a grudge takes a swing at H.D. while in line at Bean’s shop, Bean jumps to intervene.
So taking a hit for H.D. gets Bean noticed, and H.D. feels obligated to pay a debt. But then the unexpected happens. A series of misadventures causes H.D. to open up—but falling in love makes him turn tail and run. Trust is a tough road to travel. Will good friends, a dog named Sarah Jane, and a bit of folk magic be enough to bring Hound Dog and Bean a happy ending?
My View – Story:
I had a very hard time getting into this story. It was very slow moving and the characters were not interesting to me. Bean’s mother and the potential FF pairing were actually the only two things that sparked any kind of connection with me. My mind kept wandering and I had to repeatedly go back in the recording because I would lose a whole chapter before I realized I was using the book more for noise in the background than for anything else.
I am sorry to say that this one just didn’t work for me. You may like it, I always encourage others to form their own opinions, but for me, this one fell flat and I just could not listen to the entire thing.
My View – Narration:
I think part of the reason I could not get into this story was the narration. Charlie David has an easy to listen to voice, but his reading is very effeminate and there are no distinct character voices.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
