Must Love Dogs meets My Not So Perfect Life in this hilarious romantic comedy about a dog trainer who’s a master at managing her four-legged friends, but when it comes to her love life…let’s just say she still has a lot to learn.
Cora Bellamy is a woman who thrives on organization. She’s successfully run her own dog training business for years, perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life. She’s given everything to her business, and her lack of social life (or slobber-free clothes) has been completely worth it.
But all that changes when she meets Charlie Gill, the hottest client she’s ever had. The only problem? Charlie’s taken. Luckily, Cora has a new friend—the sweet, lovably geeky Eli Crawford. More loyal than a retriever, he’s always there to help Cora with her problems, including her love life. That’s why she’s shocked to realize that even as things start heating up with Charlie, there might just be a more-than-friends spark between her and Eli, too.
As Cora’s life gets more tangled up than a dogwalker’s leashes—and as she prepares to audition for a dog-training TV show that may irrevocably change her entire life—she has to figure things out before it all goes straight to the dogs.
Charming, witty, and warm-hearted, Life on the Leash inspires you to cheer for every underdog looking for love.
This was such a light-hearted read full of doggies. An inspiring story of an ex-corporate girl who decided to follow her heart and passion to become a dog trainer. As a dog lover I enjoyed the tid-bits of different personalities dogies and their humans possess. The author creates a very authentic story that I have a feeling might even reflect her own life… or at least I hope so. Nope I am not jealous at all!
Cora spends her days teaching people how to properly interact with their pets and teach them how to behave (both species!). She has an amazing support system and a generally happy life except couple of things missing – true love, romance, and taking her passion to another level.
There are some flaws to her in fulfilling that goal what with a charming client who she has an inappropriately huge crush on. I especially love Eli who wins over Cora slowly and surely and proving that nice guys do win!
If you are a dog lover or aspires to be this book is defiantly for you!
