When the universe screws you over, adopt a dog.
Paige Herbert doesn’t know exactly how she lost control of her life. Friday morning, she had her future planned out; Sunday night, she’s jobless and staring at her half-naked fiancé standing next to a woman who's wearing her green robe. Taking refuge in her childhood home, Paige decides she needs to start over. This time around, her life partner will have four legs instead of two. Problem is, the abandon pit bull Paige rescues is in bad need of obedience training, and the perfect guy for the job has Paige forgetting the pain.
Dash Lamont doesn’t want to go back to jail. Out on parole and working at an animal shelter, he’s focused on living life by the law in addition to his own set of rules. Number one on the list: avoid temptation. And that’s exactly what Paige Herbert is. The woman parks in the middle of Dash’s well-ordered life, demanding his attention with her offbeat conversation, sinful curves, and wet dream of a refurbished classic Chevy. Despite his decision to keep his distance, Dash somehow finds himself agreeing to her plea for help.
As the two spend more time together, what starts as a business relationship, slowly turns toward friendship. Awkward attempts at flirting, late-night dancing to jazz music, and a chance taken at a Halloween party lure the hesitant pair down a sensual road. But when sins of the past and judgmental families work against the newly budding romance, Dash will need to decide whether to take his chance at seducing the woman of his fantasies or staying in his safe lane and watching as Paige drives off without him.
