    Adorably fun.

    Tons of cute and cuddle worthy moments await. Sweet Child of Mine seems to thrive on the premise that less is more. Kerr goes for romantically sweet more sensually hot. Not only is there a chance to fall in love with a falling in love, but there is also an eye opening message behind the romance. Getting to know some adorable animals and making a point about protecting the vulnerable. Laughter, love and insight await in an adorably fun package.

    Adorably grumpy hero, lots of cute animals

    I loved the first book in this series, and this one is as good if not better. The zoo setting is absolutely not just window dressing in this series which is one reason I love it so much. Between the Sorcha, the polar cub foster, Frida, the old grizzly who "adopts" her, Sylvia, the capybara who is a substitute mother to all of the orphans, the honey badger antics, and more on Lulubelle the lovelorn camel (you'll have to read the first book for that), there's plenty of animal action. The heroine is June, the best friend of the heroine in book 1. June is a statuesque, put-together blonde bombshell who single handedly runs her beloved nana's English tea shop in the small town of Sagebrush Flats, invents and markets amazing jams, and is also dealing with her nan's mental deterioration from unknown causes. June is used to managing everyone and everything around her. She's a friendly force of nature who refuses to take "no" for an answer and is sure that she knows best for everyone (often because she does). The hero of this book is Magnus, a reclusive, grumpy, Scottish author who wrote 2 amazing books, one about his childhood on an isolated croft in the Orkneys, the second about his "adoption" of 2 polar bear cubs while working as a roughneck on a North Sea oil rig. He then moved to London, got snarky and sarcastic and his writing career fell apart, so at his agent's suggestion, he's volunteering at the zoo at Sagebrush Flats to help raise a polar bear cub that they've gotten a grant to foster. His father was abusive and he has a strong stutter that he was never treated for, so he hardly talks and pushes everyone away. June's nana spent the war years on the island next to where Magnus grew up so June is desperate to get him to talk to with her nan although he hates remembering his childhood. They also get off totally on the wrong foot when June tries to introduce herself at the local bar while Magnus just wants to be left in peace on his first night in town. Slowly, as June starts helping Magnus manage his stutter (both she and her brother also stuttered) and Magnus agrees in return to spend time with her nana, their best sides are revealed to each. Under the grumpy exterior, Magnus was such a caring person who'd had very little love and affection in his life and was starved for it. June was a person who honestly wanted the best for everyone, but just didn't understand when to step back and let them solve their own problems. I think that some readers are going to have real problems with June, but I thought she was wonderful. Did she sometimes push things too far? Yes, but she did it out of genuine love and caring. Watching Magnus slowly blossom and come alive under her unstinting affection was sweet and beautiful. I hope there will be more books in this series (and lots more animal adventures at the zoo) and I can't wait to get my hands on them. I received this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
