She’s tempting his basic instincts…

Sunshine, Idaho, is a quiet ranching town, a perfect place to give injured animals a refuge…or to find one yourself. Veterinarian Dell Connelly suspects there’s a reason his clinic’s uber-efficient receptionist has taken shelter here.

Jade Bennett couldn’t be happier to escape the big-city jungle to work with hurt animals, and have a forlorn stray kitten make its home under her desk…or enjoy the gorgeous views of her ruggedly sexy boss.

Jade is used to planning everything in her life, but Dell’s seductive, alluring ways have sparked an uncontrollable desire. And though Dell has never had time for love, Jade’s strength and sass is the kind of call no red-blooded male can resist…

Jill Shalvis makes me ache for a small town life with close friends that are more like family. And the hot men in her Animal Magnetism series make me envious of the gals in Sunshine. (shh don’t tell my husband.) Animal Attraction is the story of vet Dell and his assistant Jade.

Jade ran from her Chicago life to the quite small town of Sunshine, Idaho 18 months ago. She runs Dell’s vet clinic like a well-oiled machine. No one questions her and her multiple spreadsheets because she knows the workings of the clinic inside and outside. But no one really knows much about Jade because she’s kept herself closed off. Sure she’s made friends with workers at the clinic a few around town but she’s never invited anyone over to her place to hang out.

Dell, much like the other men in Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series is a serial dater. He never has trouble finding a date and mostly with a different woman each time. But something about Jade has him slowing down his dating life. She knocked him for a loop the moment she walked into his clinic to interview for the position of receptionist all those months ago. But Dell only let’s four legged females into his heart.

Slowly Jade and Dell let the other one into their personal lives and much to their surprise, into their hearts. Shalvis’ has created another funny, spunky and sexy romance and I for one can’t wait for more from Sunshine, Idaho and its citizens.

Karen White does a lovely job of bring the people (and animals) to life in Sunshine. Her voice is just purrrfect for this series.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
