Rigid and predictable.
Sarah Buchanan would never in a million years have used those words to describe herself. Never. But it’s been almost a year since her longtime girlfriend left her for a man, and she’s suddenly realized that those words now describe her with frightening accuracy, along with one more: boring. Deciding it’s time to escape her disaster of a life, at least long enough to turn it around, she takes a temporary position with her company overseas. The hardest part is leaving her blue-eyed dog, Bentley, behind. But at least he’s in the capable hands of her family. She thinks.
Natalie Fox is the exact opposite of Sarah. She’s flighty, spontaneous, and lives in The Now. It’s how she’s always been, and for better or for worse, Natalie loves her carefree life. When she finds a stray, skinny, terrified dog with blue eyes outside the coffee shop where she works and decides to adopt him as her own, things seem just about perfect to her.
