After quitting her high-stress job as an investment banker, selling her swanky San Francisco condo, and breaking up with her money-hungry fiancé, Olivia Montez fulfills her lifelong dream of moving to the country and starting a rescue ranch for homeless dogs. She purchases a seventy-acre property with plenty of room for the dogs she has rescued to roam and recharge until they can be adopted into forever homes. But when her new foster dog Rex escapes and jumps over a six-foot fence to the adjacent property, she has to introduce herself to the handsome man next door.
Navy SEAL dog trainer Chris Castillo has no interest in getting to know his pretty summer neighbor, even though she brought him the first home-cooked meal he has had in years. His country summer rental home is his refuge from his stressful life. Chris will be back to his Team soon, thousands of miles away from Olivia. Getting involved with a woman now would make it harder for him to leave.
But when Olivia begs Chris to help her train Rex, a fearful mutt with a wet nose and warm heart, Chris can’t say no. Chris spends more time with Olivia while preparing Rex for an agility contest in hopes of getting him adopted. But he still misses his friends and job overseas.
Olivia is appreciative that Chris has helped her with Rex, but she is reluctant to get involved in another relationship. Though she enjoys learning more about the simple country life with Chris, from fishing in the lake to late-night talks around the campfire, she is determined to settle at Rescue Ranch, and she doesn’t want any distraction, especially in the form of a gorgeous Navy SEAL, to steer her off course.
Is there any hope for finding a future together, or has their budding romance gone to the dogs?
