Synopsis: An accidental dog swap unleashes an unexpected love match in this new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.Carly Kennedy's life is in a spiral. She is drowning in work, her divorced parents are going through their midlife crises, and somehow Carly's sister convinces her to foster Baxter--a basset hound rescue with a bad case of the blues. When Carly comes home late from work one day to discover that the dog walker has accidentally switched out Baxter for another perkier, friendlier basset hound, she has reached the end of her leash.
When Max Sheffington finds a depressed male basset hound in place of his cheerful Hazel, he is bewildered. But when cute, fiery Carly arrives on his doorstep, he is intrigued. He was expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with firm ideas about dog discipline. And Carly was not expecting a handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese. Baxter is besotted with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For his sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Okay, this is cute. So cute! I am always a sucker for books with dogs in them, so it was a no brainer for me to read You Lucky Dog. I loved the premise. The idea of dogs getting switched and it bringing the two owners together. This was really sweet, really fun, I liked it a lot. What made it even better was that one of the dogs was named Baxter, I have a precious puppy (he's not really a puppy, but I still call him that because he will always be my puppy) named Baxter!
I really enjoyed Carly and Max's relationship progression. It started with such a cute premise and it was just really sweet to see them grow closer to each other. I also loved all the family elements in this book, that just made it sweeter still. I love a book about opposites attracting, which was Carly and Max.
You Lucky Dog was just a really cute read that made me feel good. If you like dogs, I'd say pick this book up. If you like sweet romances, this one's for you too. I'm glad I got the chance to read it. With the way 2020 continues to go, I need a feel good book in my life.
