This series is so cute! I love the addition and fun that the dogs add, and being able to re-visit the all the characters in the next book really help bring them to life. Our attention has turned to Addison this time. She's on the fast track to making her high-class grooming salon the next big thing in the dog show world. But it wouldn't be much of a story if something didn't go wrong.

A TAIL AS OLD AS TIME…
Addison Turner has scripted a perfect future for herself, complete with a fairytale ending. She will become the name in doggie fashion design and live happily ever after with the husband of her dreams—and her dachshund, Princess, by her side. Just when her plan is on track and she’s gaining recognition at the local dog show, Addison is hit with some Oscar-worthy drama. A group of prize-winning show dogs are stolen from under her nose, and she’s stuck asking for help from Felix Vaughn, an infuriatingly hot bartender who is the exact opposite of Prince Charming.
When more dogs go missing—and Felix becomes a suspect—the two team up to clear their names. Although Felix and Addison fight like cats and dogs, there’s an undeniable spark between them. And as the trail to the missing dogs heats up, so does their red-hot chemistry. Can Addison be persuaded to throw away her script to find an ending that just might be better than she ever expected?
The show dogs are kidnapped right out from underneath everyone's noses and Addison is being blamed. Her business is suffering and the annoying know it all bartender, Felix, isn't willing to help her. But when he gets roped into the blame game, he doesn't have much of a choice. More dogs are gone and no one seems to trust anyone else.
Felix was awesome!!! I want him. He is one of the best romance heroes I've had a chance to 'meet' in a long time. He's sweet and he really has his priorities in order. He also saves the day in the most perfect way and throws a good bit of humor into the dialog.
It was Addison I had a bit of trouble with. She's quite a judgemental person and a bit of a gold digger. But she loves Princess, her dachshund, and the little dog helps to ground her in a strange way. Princess is a bit of a diva herself, so they are a perfect match.
Felix and Addison come together while they try to clear their names. They both have to grow a bit (Addison a bit more than Felix) and there's some great tear jerking moments near the end. I will definitely be picking up the next book as soon as I can!
