About the Author
Amy Lane exists happily with her noisy family in a crumbling suburban crapmansion, and equally happily with the surprisingly demanding voices who live in her head.
She loves cats, movies, yarn, pretty colors, pretty men, shiny things, and Twu Wuv, and despises house cleaning, low fat granola bars, and vainglorious prickweenies.
She can be found at her computer, dodging housework, or simultaneously reading, watching television, and knitting, because she likes to freak people out by proving it can be done.

Carter Embree has always hoped to be rescued from his productive, tragically boring, and (slightly) ethically compromised life. But when an urchin at a grocery store shoves a bundle of fluff into his hands, Carter goes from rescuee to rescuer—and he needs a little help.
Sandy Corrigan, the vet tech who helps ease Carter into the world of dog ownership, first assumes that Carter is a crazy-pants client who just needs to relax. But as Sandy gets a glimpse into the funny, kind, sexy man under Carter’s mild-mannered exterior, he sees that with a little care and feeding, Carter might be Super-Pet Owner—and decent boyfriend material to boot.
But Carter needs to see himself as a hero first. As he says good-bye to his pristine house and hello to carpet treatments and dog walkers, he finds that there really is more to himself than a researching drudge without a backbone. A Carter Embree can rate a Sandy Corrigan. He can be supportive, he can be a hero, he can be a man who stands up for his principles!
He can be the owner of a small dog.
Freckles: Review by Tracy C Muth
**copy provided by author/publisher via Divine Magazine in exchange for an honest review**
After a trip to the grocery store, Carter suddenly finds himself the owner of a new puppy. He's never had a pet before and is at a loss of what to do with his tiny new friend. When he takes her to the vet he meets Sandy a vet tech. Sandy thinks Carter is a little crazy, but cute as well. Neither Carter or Sandy have had much luck with love, but maybe Freckles was sent to bring them together.
This looked like such a cute story, and I couldn't wait to dig in. It started off so cute and Carter and the dog's antics were funny, but it quickly turned annoying. The dog became the center of the story and I just wanted to skim ahead and get to Carter and Sandy's portion of the story. The characters are well developed individually, but as a couple I was left wanting so much more. I wanted more page time with the two of them. I wanted more dialogue, so they got to know one another and I could get to know them as a couple.
The premise of the story was good, the characters had a good chemistry and it was an enjoyable read, but I just found the romance portion really lacking. I was left wanting so much more when I closed the book. Still, a recommendable read!!
