From author's website:
What happens when you find the right one at the wrong time?
Cara Medlen has a serious case of animal attraction. And it's not because of all the foster dogs she's rescued. She's got it bad for her incredibly sexy neighbor. Her one rule: Don't get attached. It's served her well with the dogs she's given to good homes and the children she's nannied. Yet the temptation of Matt's sexy smile might just convince her that some rules are made to be broken.
Matt Dumont doesn't need his skills as a private investigator to detect disaster on the horizon. Cara is everything he thought he'd never find—gorgeous, funny, and caring. But there's no way he can start a relationship just as he's about to move to another state. Talk about bad timing. As their attraction sizzles too hot to deny, they'll have to make a decision: forget the consequences and let loose, or forget each other and let go…
I'm on the fence about Unleashed. I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. I guess, I just thought the book would be different than it was. I was expecting a much more light hearted, Jill Shalvis-esque romance, I mean, check out that cover – it's a total Shalvis cover! Unleashed had some elements of that, but I expected more funny. Cara and Matt are dealing with issues a little more serious than the fear of a broken heart – Cara's fears are getting a life only to lose if she gets sick again. Matt's leaving town to help his aging mother and didn't plan on finding love. A misunderstanding puts them in each other's orbit, but once there, neither can find the will to leave.
Despite not being what I thought it was going to be, Unleashed was a thoroughly entertaining read filled with heat, cute animals and all the trials and tribulations of falling in love. Cara's BFF Merry gets her shot at love in Lacey's second book, For Keeps out on January 27, 2015. You can learn more at www.rachellacey.com.
