Blurb: Zachary Cole’s new personal shopper is stunning in more ways than one. Gone is the staid, professional Jonathan. In his place is sexy, whirlwind Edgar, whose methods and lifestyle are less than orthodox. Still reeling from the experience, Zack can’t get him out of his head. He needs to see him again. Even if it does involve dragging his heavily pregnant sister and her dalmatian into his cunning plan.

Sick of being dumped yet again, dog-walker Edgar’s pledged to stay single and put energy into finding a career more suited to an adult instead. Zack might be extremely tempting…and just happen to pop up wherever he goes, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to change his mind. He’s got bigger priorities in life than a website designer after a brief walk on the wild side. His heart’s taken enough of a bruising. He’s not prepared to get dumped again.

Zack wants love. Edgar only wants friendship. Can the two men find common ground amid the chaos of Edgar’s life? Or is Zack going to find that no matter what he does, there’s no happy ending and he’ll have to walk away?

Review:
This is a fun, sweet and offbeat story of opposites attract.
Edgar and Zack couldn’t have been more opposite and yet, so meant for each other.
Edgar is a professional dog walker who feels compelled to get a ‘grown up’ job (not his words). He applies to be a personal shopper – it’s hilarious how he gets rid of the other candidates for the job – pure genius ☺. Anyway, he gets the job on a trial basis, which is how he meets Zach, a web designer. Zack is a staid, by the book kind of guy, but somehow finds himself intrigued by and bending the rules for Edgar.
Zack decides to pursue Edgar, the latter having sworn off relationships. What ensues is a comedy of errors that was fun to read.
The banter and the overall development of their relationship is fun to read. The point where Zack shows that he’s in the relationship for the long haul, is tender and sweet.
Definitely recommend as a fun, well-paced read.

4 stars out of 5
