Addison Turner has scripted a perfect future for herself, complete with a fairytale ending. She will become the name in doggie fashion design and live happily ever after with the husband of her dreams—and her dachshund, Princess, by her side. Just when her plan is on track and she’s gaining recognition at the local dog show, Addison is hit with some Oscar-worthy drama. A group of prize-winning show dogs are stolen from under her nose, and she’s stuck asking for help from Felix Vaughn, an infuriatingly hot bartender who is the exact opposite of Prince Charming.
When more dogs go missing—and Felix becomes a suspect—the two team up to clear their names. Although Felix and Addison fight like cats and dogs, there’s an undeniable spark between them. And as the trail to the missing dogs heats up, so does their red-hot chemistry. Can Addison be persuaded to throw away her script to find an ending that just might be better than she ever expected?
I loved this book. Honestly I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up this book. It was the title it sounds like a beauty and the best retelling but it really wasn't. I guess in some ways it kinda did but if that is why you are looking towards this book then I wouldn't suggest you pick it up for that reason. Instead if you are interested in a interesting batch of characters, a mystery, romance and above all else dogs you'll love this book. Being a dog lover myself I found myself appreciated this book a bit more. I loved the characters and seeing that spark between her and Felix even if she was trying to fight it. He after all wasn't what she was looking for in a man. Then there is that connection and heat between the two. Whew. It was really good. I loved that there was loads of mystery, drama and mishaps to keep things interesting. I enjoyed making guesses on who it would've been and was thrown when I found out it was it in the ending. Overall a great book I really enjoyed it.
