My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Starting a new job in a new town, veterinarian Carter Reece, makes a house call to a very special client.
Arrogant, moody and totally gorgeous, Isaac Brannigan has been blind since he was eight. After the death of his guide dog and best friend, Rosie, his partnership with his new guide dog, Brady, isn’t going well.
Carter tries to help both man and canine through this initiation phase, but just who is leading who?
So what did I think?
This was a lovely story. Isaac, who was blinded in an accident when he was a child, receives regular visits from the vet to check on his guide dog. Carter is new to town and takes over the vet practice, thus meeting Isaac.
Carter takes things slowly with Isaac. As well as being attracted, he admires the way Isaac handles himself and is so passionate about his job. Isaac, is very inexperienced and likes Carter very much. However he has abandonment issues which cause him to over-react in certain situations.
It was nice to see the story cover both Isaac’s relationship with Carter, but also his relationship with his guide dog, Darcy.
Secondary characters were also interesting including Isaac’s slightly interfering-with-the-best-intentions sister and Carter’s funny bisexual best friend Mark.
I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded. There was a real sense of realism to Isaac’s blindness and also some great humour.
“Can I introduce you as my boyfriend?” I smiled. “Of course you can.” He grinned. “A lot of them don’t know I’m gay,” he went on to say. “So I want graphic details of facial expressions, please.”
The story is sweet, the dogs are gorgeous and the ending is happy!
