Description

This playboy has met his match, and she's organized...

After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients.Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.

Cade O'Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he's struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she's working for his family's clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance.He might just have a chance at convincing Avery--and her too-guarded heart--that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .

Puppy Love was a nice and emotional read for me.

I can't understand how hard the life was for Avery before she moved to Redwood Ridge but I was so glad she finally found a place in the World where she can forget all her insecurities and fears in order to make a better life for her and her daughter.
Cade is my favorite character,I loved how he became an important person in Avery and Hailey's lives,earning their trust inch by inch.

I liked how easy are the relationships between the characters,even if there isn't so much privacy in the little village,everyone feel loved and appreciated and they can easily feel at home.

Kelly Moran once again made me fall in love with a new place and an incredible bunch of new characters since the first page.I wasn't ready to say goodbye at the end,fortunately there will be a new book in the series released pretty soon.

Kelly Moran delivers a loving contemporary romance with heat and sweetness. This is the first in a series about three swoon worthy veterinarian brothers in small town Oregon. Avery Stowe is moving to town with her non-verbal autistic daughter Hailey. On their first night in town they rescue an abandoned puppy whose leg has been severed in a trap. She of course takes him to the vet clinic. It turns out she is just what the clinic needs. As the new office manager she is a fantastic organizer earning her the thanks of all three brothers. But youngest brother Cade O'Grady, the family playboy, finds her irresistible. This is small town romance at it’s best. No villains, just curious busybodies, likable co-workers and a vet with six-pack abs and a kitten on his shoulder. I appreciate the realistic depiction of autism and Avery coming from a less than perfect marriage. I have already read the second in the series so it was nice to come back and see where it begins. Thank you to NetGalley and the author Kelly Moran for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. (4.5 stars)

This is the first book in the Redwood Ridge series, and I loved it. I read books 2 and 3 first so it was nice to read Avery and Cade’s origin story.

Avery and her daughter move to town to be closer to Avery’s mom. There they meet Cade, his family and friends, and she even gets a job at their vet clinic. Loved the secondary cast of characters, and I especially loved the parts of the story that involved her daughter, Hailey.

Thanks to NetGalley for this book in exchange for my honest review. Puppy Love is available now!

Kelly Moran’s Redwood Ridge is one of my favorite fictional towns and 𝗣𝗨𝗣𝗣𝗬 𝗟𝗢𝗩𝗘 is the first book in this fantastic series. Cade and Avery are couple goals. He’s the good time guy running from commitment and love and she’s the curvaceous divorced, single mom with trust issues.

Cade and Avery find each other when neither one is expecting it. Watching Avery overcome her personal demons and allow Cade in, was both beautiful and heartbreaking as was watching Cade mature into the man he was always meant to be.

I absolutely loved this book. I’m giving 𝗣𝗨𝗣𝗣𝗬 𝗟𝗢𝗩𝗘 the judy.ann.loves.books stamp of approval, TBR and Enjoy!

A sweet, yet sassy and sexy love story. Avery Stowe and her daughter Hailey have moved to Redwood Ridge, Oregon. Recently divorced, Avery alone has had the care of her autistic daughter. She quickly learns that she has not only her mother’s support but also the support of the O’Grady brothers. Cade and his brothers run the Animal Instinct Veterinary Clinic and when Hailey finds an injured puppy, they take him to the clinic. Cade at first believes that Avery is an uncaring pet owner, only to learn that the puppy was a stray that she rescued. Avery is hired as the administrative assistant at the clinic and enjoys the warm and giving people of Redwood Ridge, even if she often feels as if she has entered the Twilight Zone in Mayberry. Cade is slowly falling in love with her and her little girl, but he has never wanted a serious relationship. Can he convince Avery that he is the man for her and he needs her and Hailey to make his life complete? I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review.
