Husky Love by Gabbi Grey (Friend of Gaynor Beach Animal Rescue book 4)

Husky Love is a sweet, slow burn romance featuring a young, newly single father recovering from an abusive relationship and a sweet young man at his own crossroads in life... and the dog that adopts them. 

From the blurb:


I may be young, but I've done a hell of a lot of growing up in the past year. I watched my big brother deal with the challenges of loving someone, went through some medical stuff myself, and changed my career plans and ultimately, my city. Gaynor Beach is smaller than where I was, but it has two attractions—my brother's big new house, where he's letting me live for now, and Rob Dunn. When I met Rob, just, damn. Like my brother, I wanted to help that sweet, stubborn guy and his cute kids get back on their feet. Maybe the rescue husky wasn't the right gesture, despite Rob’s connection to her, but a dog is love on four paws, and I plan to be there to help all the way.


I fled my abusive husband with my two kids and the clothes on our backs. I'm grateful every day for the support the Gaynor Beach folks have given us…okay, I'm not sure I'm precisely grateful for the rambunctious young husky Danny Reynolds gave us, but Trouble makes my kids smile, and that's a big win in my eyes. I'm determined to get back on my feet. I hate relying on other people to help us, but somehow it doesn't bother me as much when it comes from Danny. It's nice to have a real friend after all those isolated years, but do I want to keep him in the friend zone?

This slow-burn small-town gay romance novel is about fresh starts, accepting help, two sweet kids, and an adorable husky named Trouble.

Heather's Review:

This story was teased in the first book in this series, Love Furever, and Danny is James' brother and now we get the meat behind the bare bones information found in that book...

This book is definitely slow burn and very much a sweet romance with Rob and Danny figuring out their new normals as they find friendship, then more with each other and of course learn to blend a sweet, but sassy Husky pup into their new family...  Most of the angst comes from their other situations and the romance seems to grow and blend as they face their separate and connected challenges.  It doesn't hurt that besides the pup, there are also two adorable children and cameos from the other Gaynor Beach residents, including Anthony from the first series...

This book really combines the Single Dad series and the Animal Rescue series in a sweet and lovely way and gives them a HEA worthy of this multi-author series.  While it could be read standalone, I think you'll get more out of it if you know the history of the side characters and really both series.

Husky Love is currently available as an e-book in wide release.
