About this ebook

No good deed goes unpunished.
When an unwanted Valentine’s Day present is dumped at the shelter, volunteer Lily decides to foster the poor dog herself. A little attention is all he needs to blossom into a loving pet, ready for his forever home. Plus, helping a poor, rejected animal will distract her from her own problems. Win, win. Right? Wrong. Valentine needs more than a makeover if he’s going to be adopted. He destroys her home, hates to be groomed and when he behaves better for a perfect stranger than he does her, Lily swallows her pride and begs the good looking but quiet stranger for help
After losing his canine partner in a horrific moment that upended his future, sexy and stoic Shane turns to books, walks in the park and remodeling his grandmother’s home. No more intense K9 officer career, no more dogs, no more risks. But it’s hard to ignore the misunderstood mutt at the park and his well-intentioned, but clueless, handler. Shane reluctantly agrees to give her a few tips and tricks, but that’s all. He won’t care. He won’t get invested. And once Valentine finds his new home, his life can go back to normal.
But Shane doesn’t bargain on a new normal in town and, suddenly, Valentine’s Day will never be the same.

A Dog Called Valentine by Roxanne Snopek Neither lily nor Shane are in the market for a relationship though their friends and relatives seem dedicated to finding them the perfect person to make their lives complete. Shane is dealing with the probably loss of being an active duty policeman after being injured on the job and losing his K-9 partner as he rehab’s his grandmother’s home and gets on with his life. Lily is enmeshed in her mother’s NGO even though she would much rather be doing interior design and her new focus is to give back by taking in a foster dog. Well, the foster dog is a handful and a half that has her chasing Valentine hither and yon and right into the arms of Shane who knows more about dogs and training them than anyone knew. The two come to an agreement to get Valentine trained in time for an event that will find him a new forever home and while they work together they will pretend to have a relationship to keep their families and friends off their backs. This was a sweet feel-good story that had two worthy wonderful characters find their HEA. It was somewhat predictable but a fun way to spend the afternoon. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

Loved it! A sweet tale of how a couple is brought together by a dog named Valentine. Lilly is volunteering at the shelter when Valentine is dropped off. She decides to take him in as a foster until his forever home can be found. She never expected him to be as unruly as he turned out to be. Knowing he would never get adopted without some training she sets out to teach him as best as she can. Problem is Valentine only seems to listen to the stoic stranger they stumbled upon in the park. Turns out that stranger is a former K9 officer who has recently been injured as well as losing his partner. Shane has vowed to never become attached to anyone or anything again. Can he help Lilly train Valentine and not fall for them both? Recommended read

Loved, loved this heart warming romance of how a dog brings this couple together. Valentine, a foster dog will have you laughing out loud with his antics. Lily is over her head with Valentine, when she meets Shane at the park. Shane is dealing with his own past and grief of loosing his partner, but finally agrees to help Lily, since this is only temporary. Loved this story, you will be laughing out loud throughout the book. It shows how much unconditional love a dog can give you. Shane and Lily are just so cute together. I highly recommend this book!!
