Publisher's Summary

"Take me, all of me, broken and in pieces, or say to hell with me."
This book will break your heart!
From the best-selling romance author of The Education of Sebastian comes a sexy, heart-breaking, and heart-warming story about one man and his dog.
Alex is lost and alone, with only his dog Stan for company. He doesn't expect kindness from anyone anymore, but sometimes hope can be found in the most unlikely places. He has a second chance at happiness, but there's a dark side to Alex and a reason that more than one person has called him crazy.
Single mother Dawn is doing just fine. Except that her ex is a pain in the ass, her sister isn't speaking to her, and her love life is on the endangered list.
At least her job as a veterinarian is going well. Until a crazy-looking guy arrives at her office accompanied by an aging dog with toothache. Or maybe Alex Winters isn't so crazy after all, just...different.
Dawn realizes that she's treated him the same way that all the gossips in town have treated her - people can be very cruel.
Contains scenes of an adult nature. This is a standalone novel with no cliffhanger.

This book makes you feel!

Where does One Careful Owner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book rates right up there among the top of the audiobooks I have previously listened too. This book really made me feel. I cried a lot.

What other book might you compare One Careful Owner to and why?

I haven't read/heard any other books that will compare with this book. I consider this book one of a kind. I don't think any book has made me feel as much as this book does. I was absolutely drained emotionally by the time this book ended.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think the most heart wrenching scene is when Stan dies. I was absolutely gutted. I thought for sure he was going to pull through.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I wanted to see if Alex and Dawn could overcome all of the obstacles life was throwing them. I felt very invested in their outcome.

Any additional comments?

A word of warning do not listen to this book while at work. There are parts of this book that are absolutely heart wrenching. I cried so much that I felt absolutely gutted.

You have to be a pretty amazing author when the reader feels all the highs and lows in a story and this book absolute did that to me.
