This was a sweet romance with touches of humor. Brady is the loner who actually has more ties than he realizes. When he comes to Sunshine to visit his foster brothers, he plans to get in and out quickly. But Lilah and a cute little dog named Twinkles have other plans.At least, Lilah would have other plans if she wasn't so busy trying to keep ahead financially, run her kennel, and go to school. She doesn't have time for any emotional entanglements. And especially doesn't want to become emotionally entangled with someone who plans to leave.These two reluctant lovers haven't taken into account the chemistry between them. Both have to push past their fears to find out what they really want. Brady is a perfect hunky hero. His gruff exterior hides a heart that is quite tender and a very caring spirit. Killer abs don't hurt either! Lilah is strong-willed and always willing to help a friend or animal in need but she isn't so eager to let anyone help her. I enjoyed this romance and am eager to read the stories of Brady's foster brothers who seem like sexy hero material in their own rites.
