She needs to get out of there, fast.

Eighteen years ago, Jack Radigan took Carrie Moore’s virginity—then broke her heart by marrying her best friend. Now Carrie’s Nana has died, forcing her back to Rhode Island, where she’s trying to sell off Nana’s estate before she runs into him. But Nana had a dog not even her lawyer knew about, and it appears Carrie’s plan is doomed. Because the Irish wolfhound seems to have an agenda all her own, and it involves making Carrie deal with Jack—the town’s animal control officer— on a daily basis. The havoc the beast wreaks is costing Carrie a fortune. Hopefully, it won’t cost the last whole bits of her heart, too.

Jack married Becky…but he didn’t love her.

She was pregnant and he needed to be a father to the child. Now, Becky’s gone, and Carrie’s back home. So when her dog runs amok in their town of Narragansett, it’s his job to get the animal under control. But first, he has to control his desire to kiss Carrie, the woman he was meant to marry many years before.

Sam's Review:
I wanted the dog. It was huge and caused a lot of chaos but I found her adorable.

Eighteen years has passed since Jack Radigan took Carrie Moore’s virginity and then married her best friend. The only reason Carrie is back in Rhode Island is to settle her Nana’s affairs. She wants to get everything done quickly so she doesn’t have the threat of bumping into Jack. However, she never expected to be in charge of a large dog intent of creating destruction and bringing Jack back into her life. During the course of her stay she learns a few hard truths about the past. Can Carrie and Jack move on?

I really enjoyed this story. Jack and Carrie are really well written and the story line is solid. I personally love tales of old high-school romances coming together and this book did not disappoint.

I only wish there could have been more explained or at least a few scenes of Jack and Becky together to really show the friendship and the struggle they had together. That is just my personal opinion otherwise this story is wonderful and I found myself laughing at the dog. She’s adorable.

I like the "big ol dog getting into trouble" element. That makes it sound like a fun summer read. What's the dog's name?
