Two hearts on the mend and one adorable mutt get a new leash on love in this romantic short story from award-winning author Rebekah Weatherspoon.
Andre Monroe is ready to move on from heartbreak, and the first step is bringing home his rescue pup. He’d bonded instantly with the playful Zeus, and was already planning their first adventures. But one thing he definitely hadn’t daydreamed about was Zeus accidentally being promised to someone else – or that he might go home empty handed and broken-hearted all over again.
Janelle Johnson is not giving up her claim to Zeus. He already has a hold on her heart (and his own Instagram handle). After the year she’d had, she needed this dog. But when she sees the disappointment of the big, burly handsome man who’s clearly just as in love with the dog as she is, she proposes a deal to Andre – for one month they’ll co-parent the dog. How hard could it be?
Both of them agree to the unusual arrangement. Sharing a dog with a complete stranger isn’t quite the walk in the (dog) park they imagined, but as they work together to give Zeus a loving future, their four-legged friend might not be the only one who’s found a happily ever after.
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating perspectives, clearly defined.
I loved this sweet & sexy novella. Super cute & low angst meet cute romance. Weatherspoon’s ability to evoke those “just starting out flutters” was perfect. Andre & Janelle are both out of breakups and decide a dog is the best way to go for companionship. Unfortunately, the shelter has promised Zeus to both of them – so the answer is coparenting. Fun fur baby adventures turn into more for this couple.
This was my first time listening to either Marissa Hampton or Chinua Hawk and I enjoyed them both. Great matches for Weatherspoon’s style and characters. Delightful listen.
