    Amazing

    WOW did I ever love this book! I'd love to give it more than 5 stars. The parts written from the point of view of Atticus were definitely my favorite parts. This is an amazing story of a woman's journey from a pretty bad place in her life to a very fulfilling life and her own HEA. Everything starts to turn around after she stumbles upon a little bundle of fur that would ultimately change her life. The story is packed with emotion. I laughed (a lot!), I cried (dang it Ms. Bennett), I cheered. Every character in this story is special but Atticus definitely stole the show. This book needs to be on everyone's must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Atticus is an Emotional Journey

    Atticus was cute, funny, happy, sad, and everything in between. I've never read a book like this, it's definitely unique. I've always loved chapters from a pet's perspective, and that was still the case for Atticus. Atticus is an adorable and trouble making dog who is just so lovable. I loved getting his take on things and how he views the world, it was hilarious! I'm pretty sure I laughed out loud for every single one of his chapters. The whole book is an emotional journey as Hazel goes from the worst days of her life to the best days of her life. I enjoyed seeing how much a cute, mischievous little puppy can change someone's life, and I believed it. Sawyer did a wonderful job writing this book. The storyline was emotional and real, with characters that you could empathize with and root for. This book shows you to treasure the ones you love, because you never know what tomorrow brings. I also really enjoyed that Atticus is based on her own dog, Atticus, and all the crazy yet adorable things he does. I could tell that Sawyer put a lot of care and dedication into this book to make it what it is. This book had me close to tears, but it's sort of a fitting end for the characters. I think Atticus will stay with me for a while.

    Keep a box of tissues handy!!!

    Atticus: A Woman's Journey with the World's Worst Behaved Dog is a standalone book. If you've read other books by this author, you know she writes a fabulous hot, steamy, page turning book. This is going to be nothing like them, with the exception of page turning. This book really hit home in a lot of ways, I found a lot of similarities between Hazel and myself, the journey she went through to find herself. Be prepared this book is going to make you ugly cry, I would keep a box of Kleenex's handy. I was more prepared for the comedic stunts of a wayward dog. I can relate, I have a Newfoundland that sounds like it is Atticus's brother from another mother. Good to know I'm not the only one with a destructive attention seeking, bratty dog! The book will make you laugh and cry. The book is very well written and the story line flowed, it was impossible to put down- surprising since I only read romance. There is a minute amount in the book, but it's not the focus and something that doesn't happen until way into the book. I loved the friendship that developed between Hazel and Oley, that then included Bernard and others into the fold. Watching the dynamic between Oley and Hazel was very interesting as well as how Atticus helped change Hazel's life, and helped her to find herself. It is obvious the thought and attention that went into this book, as well as the depth of the book. As the relationships evolve (not romantic type) and you learn more of the backstory, it was hard to not despise Oley's children. All the other characters you meet it is hard not to like them. The characters and their interactions felt very real and the situations realistic. This book was outstanding and was an easy to give 5 star rating. Though I hope no more are written like this because I used over half a box of Kleenex ugly crying. You've been forewarned! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!

    An emotional story of self discovery

    Oh my word. Not quite sure where to start. What a story! So many feels. The journey begins with down on her luck Hazel Roundtree, who has no home after her cheating husband threw her out. She’s living on a friend’s couch, bar tending, drinking, smoking and generally wasting her life away. After coming across a puppy stuck in a ditch with wire wrapped round him, her life changes very much for the better. Finding a vet and helping him to help her, befriending a homeless man, getting thrown out of her friend’s apartment and losing her job. Whilst the latter two might not seem like good things, they are in fact the push that Hazel needs to sort herself out. Hazel discovers that life with Atticus is much better, more fulfilling and so worth living. A story of self discovery. A story with so many emotions. I swear I don’t think I’ve laughed out loud so much whilst reading, Atticus was so so funny. There were of course some extremely emotional scenes and I did spend the last 10% of the book in tears. What a wonderful heartfelt story. Most definitely one of my favourite reads of 2018. Sawyer Bennett you never cease to amaze me. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest honest review.

    Sawyer Bennett at her best!!!

    I used to think The Hard Truth About Sunshine was my favorite Sawyer Bennett book. Not anymore!!!! I absolutely adored this book!!!! I laughed SOOOO much through this book!!! The absolute adoration this author has, not just for her own Berner but for the breed and all dogs, is clearly apparent through every page of this book! But this story wasn't just about the laughs! There was a lot of heartache, love, and personal growth on the part of Hazel, Atticus, and those around her. I cried my fair share of tears while reading it as well. And once again, Sawyer Bennett has proven that she is an extraordinary story-teller!!! This is a must read for all of her fans, as well as ANYONE who just wants a fantastic story with some really unique characters!!!
