Joss Perrault left Sky, Colorado after high school with no intention of ever returning, but all that changes when she inherits Atramentum. Burned out on public accounting after too many sixteen-hour days, the allure of operating a small, independent bookstore is too tempting to resist, and Joss decides to walk away from the career she spent the last decade building to move back to the resort town high in the Rockies. Cupid strikes as she’s moving into her new place outside Sky and, contrary to popular belief, Cupid has four legs and a tail, hits like a linebacker, and answers to the name George. Before Joss can recover from being tackled by the Great Dane, she finds herself face to face with George's mom, Maeve Dylan. Joss is immediately smitten with her beautiful neighbor, but their conversations walk the line between friendliness and flirtation like it’s a tightrope, and Joss is reluctant to do anything that will risk their budding friendship. Thankfully for her, however, George doesn't give up so easily.


I found this book on kindle unlimited.  

I've found that in many lesbian romances almost all the characters are gay which is unrealistic - what I liked about this book is that Joss's friends are all different, some heterosexual, some gay and Maeve is bisexual.  

I loved the characters and that George, the Great Dane is pretty much one of the main characters in the book.  She has personality to spare and is a driving force behind Joss and Maeve getting together.  Some of the scenes made me chuckle as a person with several dogs I loved the George was afraid of vacuums and that putting a vacuum on the stairs kept her from going upstairs.  

Overall this is a fun read with just enough drama - because every romance has to have a bit of that! I think if I had to complain about anything it would be the title which I can't pronounce, can't spell and had a hard time looking up on amazon because of my inability to figure that out.
