Stay.jpgCole knows he doesn’t deserve the white picket fence kind of life, and he’s always been fine with that, until her. The last thing he ever expected when he knocks on his client’s door is the answer to his deepest fantasies. One look and he knows Addison is out of his league, but that won’t stop him trying to make her his.

Addison never knew if someone’s interest was in her or her family’s wealth, which caused her to keep her guard up. Doubly so when the new dog walker showed up on her cousin’s doorstep with his good looks and sexy smiles. After his relentless pursuing, Addison finds herself wondering if Cole could be someone worth letting her walls down for. That is, until his past rears its ugly head, leaving Addison with the choice to run or fight for what she wants.

This is book is a republished version of Fetch. It has an additional 10,000 words and epilogue.


I really wish that I could tell you that there was something about this book that made me like it.  I think that the nicest thing that I can say about this, is that I like the cover.

I didn’t like either of the main characters, or how they interacted with each other.  Frankly, I could neither see nor relate to their apparent attraction to each other.  When I added that to what was (for me) a poorly executed storyline and a book that needed another edit, I’m afraid to say that it just wasn’t for me.

This was one of those occasions where I wish I’d taken heed of the other critical reviews.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
