Call’s life always seems to be on the cusp of working out, only to unravel at the last moment. For instance, when she meets the guy. The man she’s been fantasizing about from afar. The one who walks his beautiful Siberian husky around her neighborhood. Their first meeting is nothing like she hoped; in fact, she wishes she never met him.
Charles Beckett is in need of a good dog-sitter, but he gets more than he bargained for when a cheeky American bartender shows up at his house fifteen minutes late. The job interview quickly turns into a sparring match and Call leaves vowing to run him over with her truck the next time she sees him.
It’s up to their dogs now to bring the pair together.
Will Call finally have one of her dreams come true? Or will the Englishman be another checkmark in her long list of unrealized promises?

He walks toward you with wanting in his eyes. Ha, that sounded cheesy, too.
What I really wanted was for him to notice me while he was walking his beautiful Siberian husky. I thought he might have waved at me once, while I drove past him. I seriously obsessed about that possibility for three days. I even tried my best to walk my sweet mutt, Toby, during some of the same times I’d noticed him walking his dog, but I hadn’t run into him yet. Not that I was sure what I would do if I did, but I just wanted an up-close vie...
