Pilot Brady Cole is ready to turn over a new leaf. He’s always kept his relationships short and casual, until a one-night-only date became an obsessive stalker. Wanting some distance between him and the mentally ill woman, Brady moves into the other half of Lily’s duplex. His plans for a ‘date diet’ – his brother’s term for pursuing a relationship instead of just sex – is seriously compromised when he meets Lily. He’s instantly attracted to Lily, but for the first time finds himself wanting to know a woman as a person and friend, not just in bed. Doug has other plans for Brady, though.
Doug takes his job protecting Lily seriously. There’s no length he won’t go to, and barking and biting pants legs are just the beginning for keeping men away from his Lily. Nothing is sacred to Doug, not welcome mats, shoes, or even motorcycles.
BEWARE OF DOUG is wonderfully funny, a treat for both dog-lovers and fans of romantic comedy. The relationship between Lily and Brady was both sweet and steamy, and I loved that some scenes were written from Doug’s point of view. You knew exactly what that smile on his face was about! Fans of Ms. Fox will recognize the characters from GUYS AND DOGS, and enjoy catching up with Megan and Sutter. BEWARE OF DOUG is a great read, definite keeper-shelf material.
