Sleeping With Dogs & Other Lovers
by Julia Dumont
Meanwhile, her high-maintenance mother busily concocts harebrained schemes for meddling in Cynthia’s affairs.
And her new best girlfriend—the sexy proprietress of a chic Beverly Hills dog-grooming salon—just happens to roll with a purebred entourage of curiously gifted canines.
Before long, Cynthia’s personal, professional, and amorous lives begin crashing hilariously into one another.
Join Cynthia as she begins her own ”Second Act” and find out who accidentally slips into bed with whom, who has a penchant for low-cut lederhosen, and who winds up naked and alone on a beautiful beach in Malibu!
I enjoyed this book a great deal. It was humorous and sexy and a lot of fun.
I loved the character of Cynthia, a girl who's down on her luck when it comes to her own love live but is so amazing when it comes to everyone else's that she starts her own dating service. I liked her relentless, but somewhat flakey mother, and her new friend Lolita as well. Lolita's dogs were downright weird, and you never knew where they were going to show up next.
The story is engaging and fast-paced with Cynthia on a romantic roller coaster as she tries to juggle dealing with her mother, making sure her clients all have the perfect first date, and dealing with her own love life all at the same time. It was so much fun it made it hard to put down.
But I think my favourite part of the whole book was the way she dealt with her on again/off again lover Max. It was epic. :-)
