I enjoyed this story a lot. It was a novella but still had everything it needed for the story to be complete. The plot was very good and it was an easy read. But it started a little slow but I don’t really believe it took away from the story. I loved the dogs hi jinks  they added a lot to the story. I laughed a lot and out loud and that is always good. I loved how Jonah took time out of his life to dog sit the three dogs, I enjoyed the slow burning romance between Krista  and Jonah. Also could Krista and Jonah manage a relationship while online. I did love the characters  and the  in and outs of this story and I recommend.
