For those who want some more info, here it is.
It's all about Delilah Gould, a very shy dog trainer, and about Jason Mitchell, a new player of the Blades. Jason and his best buddy, Newfoundland Stanley, are new in town and in need of a place for Stanley to stay when Jason is playing. Jason and Delilah meet on a hot summer day and there is instant attraction between them and even better Delilah adores Stanley and is prepared to train and board him.
From a working relationship they go on to a more intimate one and at the beginning they have a lot of fun and enjoy their life together, but soon realize that because their temperaments are totally different not everything is perfect. Delilah is very shy and happy to stay at home with her dogs while Jason wants to enjoy every aspect of his new life in New York and wants to spend every night out meeting new people.
Jason expects Delilah to be more outgoing but doesn't realize that he is hurting her more than helping to overcome her insecurities.
After a disastrous evening spent at one of Jason's colleagues home they both decide to end their intimate relationship. They still have contact because of Stanley and after Delilah helps Jason out in two critical situations he realizes why he fell in love with the shy Delilah and that they are perfect for each other if they accept the other just like she/he is.
Delilah and Jason are really sweet together and I especially love her. She is one of my favourite heroines.Read more ›
I like both Delilah and Jason, but I can't see them together, they are just too different. Delilah is good with dogs and all in all a good person, but she prefers the company of dogs than of humans. Jason is a nice guy, not too cocky for a professional athlete and of course he loves Stanley. But I just can't condone the way he treats Delilah a couple of times. Since he is busy with the games and she has to keep the business running by walking dogs they spend a lot of time together adjusting their timetables. He gets all sulky when she says she hasn'nt got time because she has dogs to walk. When they do get together and go out with his teammates she gets tonguetied and awkward, he is not very understanding and actually berates her for her shyness. Jason takes it out on her after he has a bad day, she lets him get of with him way to easily. At the end of the book I realised that they spend more time arguing than enoying eachothers company.
And don't get me started on the dog part of the book. I own a dog and spend a lot of time in the park with other owners. I don't know if they make dogs different in America, but I just can't imagine a professional dog walker take several dogs out at the same time, like Delilah does. I actually know a walker and she would never think of doing that.Read more ›
Hopefully Deidre's next book will be a return to form, with a hero strong enough to know his own mind, and a heroine that doesn't go around insulting his friends.
