My name is Cyndi and I'd like to thank you for stopping by for another round of book talk on Book Club Thursday (BCT).

Each week myself and two best friends (Ann and Karen) blog all about books or book related themes. To learn more about each of us and BCT please take a peak at the page tab at the top of my blog.

This week is our Catching Up On. 

In a nutshell, these weeks mean each of us is reviewing a book,by a pre-picked author, that we are each behind on.

This month the author is Jill Shalvis(my pick is below). 

I don't know why I fell behind on Ms. Shalvis because she writes a heartfelt, easy to read, "comfort" book packed with humor and emotion.

This alpha male is going to bring out her wild side…
Sunshine, Idaho, is a small and sunny town—the perfect home for man and beast. Well, maybe not for man, as pilot-for-hire Brady Miller discovers when his truck is rear-ended by what appears to be Noah’s Ark.
As the co-owner of the town’s only kennel, Lilah Young has good reason to be distracted behind the wheel—there are puppies, a piglet, and a duck in her Jeep. But, she doesn’t find it hard to focus on the sexy, gorgeous stranger she’s collided with.
Lilah has lived in Sunshine all her life, and though Brady is just passing through, he has her abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire. It’s Brady’s nature to resist being tied down, but there’s something about Lilah and her menagerie—both animal and human—that keeps him coming back for more…

Like I mentioned above, I don't know why I let myself get so behind on Ms. Shalvis' books. The things /reasons I mentioned above for loving her are present here in this book.

I found Animal Magnetism to be a heartfelt humorous book that touched my heart and tickled my funny bone.

It's packed with chemistry between Lilah and Brady (and I'm not talking about the sex). 

It's also full of great secondary characters, including the animals(I'm a GIANT sucker for books with animals) and the brothers (sigh).

This book is filled with spot-on/real  dialogue and interactions/behaviors. The plot although predictable was also somehow fresh. Again, I loved the animals and the shelter setting. 

For me the character driven story is what really shines here although I had a tiny issue with the ending.

I'm glad I have the other books in this series already on my shelf (meaning I don't need to track the down) and I plan to read them soon. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts about this book or any other favorites you have by Ms. Shalvis.
