Goodreads:  She needs a fresh start. He’s got scars that haven’t healed. With the help of some rescue dogs, they’ll discover that everyone deserves a chance at happiness.

After a year of heartbreak and loss, the only thing keeping Constance afloat is the dog rescue she works at with her sister, Sunny. Desperate for a change, Constance impulsively joins a new gym, even though it seems impossibly hard, and despite the gym’s prickly owner.

Rhett Santos keeps his gym as a refuge for his former-military brothers and to sweat out his own issues. He’s ready to let the funny redhead join, but unprepared for the way she wiggles past his hard-won defenses.

When their dog rescue is threatened, the sisters fight to protect it. And they need all the help they can get. As Rhett and Constance slowly open up to each other, they’ll find that no one is past rescuing; what they need is the right person—or dog—to save them.

Kritters Thoughts:  From the opinion of a dog mom, a book where the two sisters focus a lot of their time on rescuing dogs who need a new good home is one that I am excited to read.  Constance is the older sister who after their mother dies ends up raising her younger sister and Sunny is that younger sister who hasn't had a lot of burden on her shoulders and has spent her life rescuing/stealing dogs and giving them a better life through adoption or through a program where they become a helpful aid to veterans in need.  Rhett is a veteran who owns a gym and hasn't completely mentally or physically healed from his years and many tours and maybe an encounter with Constance could change his life.  

Although there were moments in this book that I felt missed the mark and felt forced to move the story along, overall the story was enjoyable.  I appreciated that the sisters had two very different journeys in the book.  They both reacted to their childhood trauma in different ways and it informed the way they entered love.  I was glad to see two women grow up in the same home end up in different situations that are so polar opposite.

If you are an avid reader of the romance genre, there may be moments where this book doesn't live up to others, but you can appreciate good characters and sweet love story.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
