Goodreads: Coming home will always give you a second chance… When Riley Leighton and Levi Duncan finally meet again, the chemistry between them is as hot as ever. But as much as Levi has missed Riley all these years, he still remembers the heartbreak when she left him the first time… Riley has spent a lifetime running from love. Now that she’s home again, starting her dream job at the local pet rescue, she also has another chance to get it right with Levi. Everything Riley’s wanted but thought she couldn’t have is almost within reach. “Uplifting…brims with kindness, hope, and a stalwart belief in second chances.”― Publishers Weekly for To Be Loved By You
Ope’s Opinion: This was a very predictable, sweet romance. It is a part of a series, but you could read it alone. If you enjoy books focused on rescue animals and cute dogs, you will really enjoy this story. At times the animals were more central in the story than the romance.
Even though the main characters knew each other previously, the romance seemed a little quick when they reunited. It would have helped to see them get to know who they are now.
The ending seem to be setting up for the next book, although I could not find that to confirm it.
