Tail of the Dog

Love dogs and smoking hot men? The Love Off Leash series is for you. Different authors. Unrelated stories. Shared theme of new love and pets.

Attorney Sam Trevisani never thought he’d play the bad guy, but now his job makes him the enemy of every dog owner in town—and whenever he meets his main opponent, Dan Bailey, the vet gives him the evil eye. Tired of playing for the wrong side, Sam has to find a solution. Maybe the tempting Dr. Bailey can help him find a solution for his restless need for change. Or maybe it’s his attraction to the vet that pushes him to pay a late-night visit.

Tired of town politics and manipulative games, Dan has no interest in helping the flashy lawyer. Yet Sam's dogged interest in him proves oddly appealing. Dan reluctantly allows the attractive lawyer into his house, and sparks fly. Sam doesn't mind hookups, but Dan doesn't do them--yet in one night, they both change their minds.

Determined to keep Dan from running away from something promising between them, Sam has to get past his attorney uncle, Dan's pack of misfit dogs, and a powerful but unpleasant client who could end not only the town's chance for a dog park but any chance of romance between the lawyer and the vet.

Customer Reviews

A fun, light read

his is a quick, fun, sweet, humorous story. It was light and filled with laughter. Sam was by far my favorite character. His whole personality held a sort of schoolboy mentality. I don’t know if he was truly as clueless as he sounded at times or he was just that adorable. Maybe a little of both.

This is an enemies to lovers story without a doubt. When Sam and Dan first meet they are on opposite sides of the fence. Sam is a lawyer for a tightwad and Dan wants a dog park on the land that the tightwad owns. You can see where this is problematic.

We follow the two guys as they explore what they want. Dan with his tons of dogs and laid back attitude. Sam with no dogs and a very lonely life. It is very fast paced, maybe too fast at times. I wanted more time with Sam and Dan to truly feel the chemistry. It was there but slight. I wanted more because they were so lovely.

This is a no angst book. Next to no conflict. A truly feel good book that just puts a smile on your face. Summer Devon's writing is as lovely as ever and I'm always a fan of her style.

The Private Secretary

Down on his luck and desperate for employment, Ezra Seton is offered only one job: to work in the house of a heartless bully, the very man who drove Ezra’s lover away. Gritting his teeth, Ezra takes the position. But neither the new job nor the master of house are close to what he expected. Still, he vows to keep his distance, no matter how difficult maintaining his composure in the face of relentless drollery becomes. 

Robert Demme’s pleasure-seeking days are over. Having rescued his cousin Ambrose from a lunatic asylum, he expends much of his energy pacifying the fragile eccentric. Hiring an assistant offers some relief—and also intriguing temptation. Unfortunately, the fascinating Seton apparently loathes him. Determined to discover the reason, Robert uses his considerable wit to get under the man’s skin, stunned when his plan backfires. Instead of unraveling the stalwart secretary, Robert has undone himself. All he’s accomplished is a deepening his own interest. Perhaps he senses Robert’s not-so-innocent attraction. 

When the two spend the night together in an inn, their mutual desire proves too strong. The secretary and the gentleman succumb to lust. But when Ezra’s old flame reappears and the cousin’s experiments go awry, it’s a battle to discover which will win the day: love or lunacy. 

This edition includes a selection from Simon and the Christmas Spirit, a title by Summer Devon and Bonnie Dee.
