4 out of 5 stars
I am such a sucker for a single dad. It’s one of my favorite tropes for some reason. I saw the synopsis of this book and signed right up. I wasn’t disappointed.
Milly recently moved to New York from Atlanta after a divorce left her devastated. She meets her new neighbor, Hudson, after she spills the contents of her purse all over the floor. Hudson helps her clean up. Shortly after moving to New York (in an apartment), her ex husband stops by with their 150 pound mastiff and informs Milly he’s moving to London and can’t take the dog with him. The dog, named Dick, makes Milly’s life more interesting – and difficult.
Her neighbor, Hudson, is a vet and has three dogs of his own – and a 5 year old named Wiley, who is the cutest little boy. He can’t pronounce his l’s and it’s so freaking cute. Wiley was the best part of the book, hands down. He kept calling Dick “Big Dick”, causing Hudson and Milly to have to explain what it meant every time and it was hilarious.
I have a few complaints. The book was about 75 pages too long. I also wanted to throat punch both Milly and Hudson in the last 25% of the book. They both acted incredibly stupid and immaturely, but it all worked out in the end.
I loved the side characters – especially Hudson’s family. His mom, dad and sister-in-law and brother were great. But Wiley – I can’t tell you how much I loved him. He made the entire book.
Overall, this was a good read and I would recommend it.
