*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
This is an enjoyable quick read. Starlyna is depressed that she didn’t get her dream job and has to move back in with her parents. She finally moves out on her own again, but falls further into depression until she meets a cute Chihuahua that she takes home and names Happy. She knows she needs to find Happy’s owners, but is so attached and is happier than she has ever been.
Joshua has not only lost Albert/Happy but his crazy girlfriend has finally broken up with him at the same time. He is not sure if he misses his ex-girlfriend or Albert/Happy, but finds relief when his Chihuahua is returned. He doesn’t want anything to do with Starlyna, but he can’t stop thinking about her. Starlyna and Joshua decide to basically share custody of the dog, which makes them spend more time together and get to know each other.
As Joshua and Starlyna spend more time together they start to fall for each other and Joshua finally asks Starlyna on a very romantic date that make the sparks between them electric.
Overall, I felt this book could have been longer with more details and more romance. However, this is the first book of what appears to be a series so stay tuned for Happy Deep Within.
I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a love for dogs mixed with a little romance.
My Favorite Heartfelt Moment: When she opened her eyes, she saw the words my beautiful Star, you are a joy to be around.
Overall, I give this 3 stars!
