    Great read

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It isn't just a sweet, feel good, second chance romance...it is much more and that is the reason I stayed late in the night and almost overslept in the morning. I had to finish it in almost one sitting. There is another story there, mental health, PTSD and dealing with setbacks also was present. Writing style is good and all in all good reading material. I am looking forward of reading other books by this author

    Great read

    A sweet, feel good second chance romance that tackles some pretty serious issue with great care. Emma Mercer had her heart broken when Jackson Hardy unexpectedly joins the Marines and leaves her behind. Now ten years later he's back in town to care for his nephew while his sister recuperates from a serious car accident. When he sees Emma again for the first time he knows immediately that he's never gotten over losing her. Emma on the other hand will not forget the pain of the past. Doesn't matter how attractive she still finds him! Yet the more time she's around Jackson and his nephew the more clear it becomes that he is troubled and suffering from PTSD. He may deny it but Emma's dealt with enough soldiers with her emotional support dogs to spot the signs. Getting Jackson to admit he needs help won't be easy but she's determined to let the animals convince him. She just has to be sure to protect her heart in the meantime. I highly recommend this one

    Wonderful Read

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it. I chose this book to read because I am a dog lover (and Mommy to two former rescues) and having Emma training rescue dogs for EST dogs and trying to establish a no-kill shelter was a big pull for me. Also with Jackson being a Marine was another. These two characters were just fantastic to watch grow together again ten years after their break-up. Also Aunt Pepita (Emma's aunt) and Matthew (Jackson's nephew) are two wonderful supporting cast members well besides the dogs of course. This book contained dual POVs which was a big plus in helping to understand why Jackson broke up with Emma after high school. Being a sniper in the Marines, he is suffering from PTSD (which is something that I have never had.) So having his POV, was a BIG plus for me. To be able to see inside of the character's mind and understand his/her's actions, makes for a more enjoyable reading experience. This was a clean, sweet romance that I highly recommend to anyone.

    Second chance romance

    This is a sweet second chance love story that I just loved. Jackson, at age 18, dumped his high school love, Emma, and joined the marines. Ten years later, circumstances force him home to care for his nephew after his mother is in a car accident. When Jackson sees Emma again, he finds it difficult to face her, as he never stopped wanting her. Emma's heart broke when Jackson left as a teen, but it breaks even more to see him struggle with PTSD, while actively in denial that it exists. The author wove a lot of great information about PTSD and emotional support dogs into the story. Throughout the novel, Jackson maintains that he is leaving to return to his unit just as soon as his sister is better. Because of this, he maintains his distance from Emma, even while reaching out to her. I enjoyed the push/pull in this book. I especially loved Emma and how she made a non traditional role for herself. Jackson is the perfect brooding and sexy marine, so the two of them together are wonderful, proving that you never forget your first love. If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book, and it's out just in time to enjoy by the fire. I'm adding the author to my must read authors' list.

    4.25⭐ Heartwarming & Enjoyable

    In the Dog House was at times a heartbreaking story. But it was also heartwarming and sweet, and honestly not at all what I was expecting. But I found it extremely enjoyable to read. And with likable characters, an adorable eleven year old and lots of cute dogs. Not to mention the discussion and highlighting of serious issues, including mental health and PTSD. This story really had plenty to offer and easily held my interest throughout. And I would happily recommend it to others, as it really was a wonderful second chance romance, with a great message to boost. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review**
