One crazy dog—one awkward vet—one naked pool guy—and one life-changing month in California to make friends, fall in love, and twist fate. Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that’s who.
When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for thirty days in Palo Alto, Sydney can’t turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within twenty-four hours of her arrival, Sydney’s cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked “pool guy.” Lautner, “pool guy,” has a hot body and a cool persona. With eyes of iridescent blue oceans, he is mesmerizing, sexy, and addictive. What he is not—the pool guy.
Dr. Lautner Sullivan is a college wide receiver turned pediatric resident. He knows how to woo a woman with flowers, pastries, and sweet tea. Lautner is every girl’s dream, but Sydney is not every girl. She’s immune to rainbows, fairytales, pixy dust, and the “L” word. The attraction is immediate, the friendship is earned, and the love is undeniable. Thirty days is their forever, but forever is not long enough.
4 out of 5 stars
This book has been on my kindle a while, and I decided to give it a try. Sydney has moved to Palo Alto to house sit for her aunt and uncle and on her first day runs into the “pool guy”. Turns out he is not the pool guy, but a pediatrician named Lautner. Why he is there is really cute and charming, and I won’t spoil it.
Lautner was awesome. I freaking loved him; he was so sweet and funny and incredibly smart. He knew up front that Sydney was only in town for a month. He wooed her anyway, in the cutest way possible.
Sydney, however, was not so awesome. She had some major issues, including her ability to NOT tell people she loved them.
There was some drama in this book, that I won’t spoil, but it was a bit annoying. And what happened made me dislike Syd even more. The only reason I finished this book was Lautner.
You may feel differently about Syd; I just did not love her. But Lautner; yum (picture Chris Hemsworth).
