Writing is a dream come true for me. Reading was something that helped me escape unpleasant things in life. Being able to blog about books that transport me to different times and places, well that's another dream come true.
5 Stars for Dog Days of Summer.
I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
"With a voice hoarse and dry, Jeremiah said, Here's how it's going to go. We'll go over things with Ricky and Janice so tomorrow will run smooth. Then, we're leaving together and tonight we're going to be together. No more of you avoiding me. I want you Joci and you want me. Stop this frustrating, ridiculous game of cat and mouse you've been playing this past year. It serves no purpose. I will have you tonight."
Jeremiah (Dog) Sheppard is a Marine Corp Gulf War veteran. He has raised his twin sons alone and runs his very successful Rolling Thunder Motorcycles, Inc.
Joci is a biker chick who runs her own marketing business and has raised her son alone. Having been cheated on in two former relationships, she steers clear of men. Understandably, she doesn't want to get hurt again.
Dog fell for Joci the first time he saw her. Joci, too, was attracted to Dog, but had turned him down on the several occasions he asked her out. He knew in his heart that one day she would have to give in; in the meantime, he would be patient.
As they are drawn together for a yearly veterans ride charity event, they are forced to face their pasts.
Can they build a future together? You'll have to read to find out.
I couldn't stop reading this book once I started. The characters are relatable and I found myself cheering for them every step of the way. There are some familial elements in Dog's family that makes the reading even more enjoyable.
I recommend this to all readers age 18+.
