About this ebook

Previously published as Beauty and the Wiener.

She dreams of Prince Charming. He’s seriously rough around the edges. Can they collar a dognapper and steal each other’s hearts?


Addison Turner has her entire fairytale life planned out. But just as the dachshund lover is about to hit it big with her doggie grooming and fashion line, thieves snatch her valuable four-legged clients right from under her nose. And to her disgust, the only one who knows the show scene enough to help is the infuriatingly hot bartender who turns her down cold.


Cocktail-slinger extraordinaire Felix Vaughn longs to open his own bar. So when he gets a gig at a high-society tail-wagging event, he thinks his gravy train has arrived and isn’t about to involve himself with a suspected thief. But when more pooches get pinched and he’s fingered for the crime, he reluctantly teams up with the fluffy prima donna to find the pups and split the reward.


With her reputation on the line, Addison doggedly follows the clues, afraid she’s falling for a mutt. And as their chemistry reaches a boiling point, Felix reveals exactly how much of his heart he stands to lose…


Will they both end up in the doghouse, or will their love win Best in Show?


Falling for the Underdog is the riotous second book in the Rescue Dog Romance comedy series. If you like fiery relationships, crazy hijinks, and canine capers, then you’ll adore Casey Griffin’s tempting tale.

Dogs + Romance = Perfection! As someone who fosters Golden Retrievers and finds their forever home, I absolutely love this series for bringing attention to the homeless dogs or dogs who were surrendered to rescue groups for a multitude of reasons. The author seamlessly wove all types of dogs and their owners together into an enjoyable mystery where the Dog Groomer and Designer, Addison has been falsely accused of kidnapping or helping the Show Dogs disappear. She partners up with bartender, Felix who’s not always on the same page as her and often sending mixed signals. It’s fun watching Addison trying to find her “perfect man” and Felix telling her she’s always wrong. This is a great story and one I’m highly recommending for your reading enjoyment and pleasure. PEACE. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Addison is looking for a Prince Charming, not a snarky bartender. But when she and Felix become the prime suspects in a dognapping scheme, they join forces to prove their innocence. This book is cute, well-written, and entertaining. To me, it reads more like cozy mystery than romance. It doesn't have the emotional journey I'm looking for in romance. The mystery plot dominates. Thanks, Booksprout, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
