Goodreads:  Summer flings with no strings mean nobody gets hurt.
At least, that was the plan…

After putting the brakes on her dead-end relationship, local veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to soak up this summer on her own terms. The way she sees it, no dating means no disappointment. Why complicate life with anything long-term? But when she meets Corbin Meyer—and his troubled young son, Justin—Ivey’s no-strings strategy threatens to unravel before she can put it into practice.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Ivey’s best friend, Hope Mage, a veterinary-clinic assistant who’s affected by an incident that’s colored every relationship she’s had. Though Hope’s happy for Ivey, she can’t quite open her own heart to the possibility of love. Not just yet… Maybe not ever. Soon, however, she’s faced with a dilemma—Corbin’s older brother, Lang. He’s charming, he’s kind…and he may just be the reason Hope needs to finally tear down her walls.

And as the sweet summer months unspool, the two friends discover love won’t give up on them so easily.

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and like most romance series, you don't have to start at book one as each book centers around different characters.  Book one focused on a set of sisters who run an animal rescue farm and this book focuses on the veterinarian who volunteers her time to the sisters when they have an animal who needs special attention and one of her techs who helps her in her office.  

While I completely fell in love with the women and their story unlike book two where the women felt flat.  I didn't love their romance journeys as they felt way too quick from the hello to the I am in love stage!  Because I enjoyed these two women, their stories kept me reading even through an eye roll or two as they met a set of brothers and were instantly falling in love.  

I loved that both women had back stories and were full fledged characters.  AND the brothers that they fell in love with were too.  This book had a fantastic set of characters, I wouldn't have minded a slower roll and more than one book that followed their journeys.  

It was fun to see the couples from book one make an appearance and honestly wouldn't have minded if they had had more in this book.  I wonder if there will be another book set in this Kentucky town with two more women to follow as they find love and happiness.  

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
