Not That Kind of Girl

Roxanne Bloom is through with love. Fresh on the heels of a bad break-up, she’s decided to devote all her time to her man-slamming website—and her man-hating dog, Lilith. But this pit-bull-Boxer is so good at unleashing her fury (and her owner’s) that the male victims keep piling up…and now it’s time to get some sensitivity training. Enter Eli Gallagher, one of the best—and hottest—canine experts in town.

The more Eli gets to know Roxie, the more he senses that she’s been hurt by men in the past—just like her dog. With a little gentle prodding, and a whole lot of patience, Eli hopes to gain Roxie’s trust and soothe her broken heart. Eli can see that Roxie’s bark is way worse than her bite. But she’s not putting her guard down just yet—even if she is falling deeply, madly, doggedly in love with him...

I'm making this short....well, shorter than usual...I didn't care for this story. Thing was I was really looking forward to this book, but I wasn't able to really get into the characters or the story for that matter. I found Roxie a pain the behind and Eli was ok but something about him didn't rub right. It was nice to see the rest of ladies though. And that little twist at the end just blew me away. Ewww....

This book was truly a waste of my time. And hate saying it, because I like the author. I was hoping for another He Loves Lucy and this one was anything but that. Grrr!
