Mini-Review: Pawsitively Perfect by L. Austen Johnson

A short, sweet romance novella filled with puns, dogs, and longing.

Cover Design: All About Book Covers

After a rough breakup and particularly difficult winter, veterinarian Leigh feels ready to engage in the outside world again. That is until her dog, Pogo, slips his leash in a park and invades a stranger’s picnic. It’s bad enough that Pogo ruins someone else’s meal, but it is doubly humiliating when it is that of a gorgeous ex-Marine named James and his very well trained former military dog, Bucky. Oh, and James just so happens to be the head of the non-profit that Leigh is expected to work with as a co-coordinator on an event benefiting his organization and her vet clinic. Ugh.

Can Leigh get over her embarrassment and her fear of being hurt again to seize the reins—erm, leash—on love? Or do the two different types of “vets” just not mix at all?

My thoughts

L. Austen Johnson gives a cute clean romance for the Fourth of July (an American holiday). Dog cute. I think anything where your puppy gets you into trouble is real-life funny. I think we all have cute pet stories and Johnson taps into this.

Johnson also ties in a great message about veteran needs and animal adoption. The romance is sweet and doesn’t happen “overnight”. There are a lot of comedic events added to the mix. Overall Pawsitively Perfect will definitely have you chuckling over the Fourth of July.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
