Got Me Hoping by Casey Cox (Vet Shop Boys #1) 5 Stars

Got Me Hoping is a fun and frisky romance between a Veterinarian and a guy finding his way!

From the Author:

It's just a one-night stand, they said. It'll be simple, no-strings fun, they said. They. Lied.

I'm done with love and being broken-hearted. The only dogs I want to deal with are the ones I treat in the veterinary clinic I work at.

But at thirty-four, having my first one-night stand can't hurt. Right? The rules are pretty simple.

1. Don't spend the night.

2. Don't see him again.

3. Don't share anything personal.

4. Don't fall in love with him.

But when Haze, the guy I spent a blazing hot night with and haven't been able to forget about, shows up as our new receptionist, the rules fly out the window.

There's no way one night could lead to anything more. So why has Haze got me hoping this might just last?

My Review:

Got Me Hoping is a sweet, relatively low angst romance with characters who you might meet at your local bar.  Noah is gun-shy after his past relationships ended badly and Haze is trying to figure out who he is and what he wants to do with this life, creating a sweet and often funny journey to their HEA.  Throw in 

  • a game of never have I ever
  • an adorable golden retriever who gives good lickings
  • a parrot starts screaming x-rated commentary in the waiting room of the Vet Clinic, 
  • a flamboyant fashionista and a successful cam boy as the two best friends
  • and a batch of soap that turns out wrong 
and you've got the recipe for a great read!  Another great part is that Got Me Hoping is available as part of your KU subscription!
