Danielle Clark’s life is going according to plan. She’s in the middle of her surgical residency and she and her fiancé, Will, are the perfect match. At least that’s what everyone says. When Will brings home a rescue dog, it’s hard to tell who’s less enthused, Dani or her cat, Jinx. The dog wreaks havoc on the household and needs training, but who has time for that? Certainly not Dani.
In steps Kara Britton, owner of a successful kennel. When she picks up Dani’s dog for day care, the sparks fly. The wrong kind of sparks. A frazzled Dani forgets her own dog’s name and Kara is appalled.
The two women verbally spar at every opportunity, but beneath the surface is a growing attraction that neither expected. During one of their many heated discussions, they share a why-I-oughtta kiss that rocks both their worlds. Dani’s engagement weighs heavy on them both, and they make a conscious effort to stay apart, but fickle fate and meddling friends seem to delight in throwing them together.
Will Dani choose the safe path and stay with the man she’s expected to marry? Or will she dare to love Kara.
