Harley seems to have it made. He runs a successful construction business, leads a loyal team, and has a beautiful house with acres of land all to himself. Still, he can’t help but feel empty and alone. Though his friends have tried for years to hook him up with a nice girl, it never works out. Harley decides a dog would be great company, and so he heads to the shelter to foster one for the upcoming storm. When he enters the shelter, Harley doesn’t expect to finally meet someone who sparks a fire in his heart. He especially doesn’t expect for that person to be another man…
After a string of failed relationships, Ash has all but given up on finding the right man. Though he is a talented artist, he has lost most of his inspiration and lives his days at home, doing web design to pay the bills. The only thing that brings him out of the house is his volunteer work at the local animal shelter. When soft-spoken Harley comes in to foster the shelter’s most misunderstood dog, Ash can’t help but think this man must have a kind soul. Too bad Harley doesn’t swing that way… or does he?
The worst hurricane to hit the coast brings these two polar opposite men together. But can they weather the emotional storm of their pasts, and find peace in each other? Or will it all fall apart?
Stormy Hearts is a standalone novel featuring two hot men, two cute rescue dogs, and a happy ending for all four of them!
Yeah, it’s a first time author. Yeah, it’s KU. Yeah, no friends have read it yet. But. PUPPIES!!!!!
I’m goin’ in!
The dogs were adorable but not adorable enough to save this book for me. Ash and Harley had no chemistry that I could see and the plot was so boring! The book is about two men meeting on a trip inland to avoid a hurricane but nothing happened. They walked the dogs around and ate good food and not much else. As for romance, we had one, frankly, uninspiring sex scene and that was it. No chemistry + no romance + no hot sex = a book I can’t recommend, even to fanatic dog lovers like me.
