Release Blitz & Review...So Good (Alpha Dogs #1) by Nicola Rendell


AP new - synopsis.jpg

On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.

Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.

But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?

It feels so good.

I loved this sweet, fun, friends to more romance. Characters Rosie and Max are extremely likeable. The have a genuine connection after knowing each other for years and are best friends who will do anything for the other. They're each others support system and have always been there when times get tough.

Rosie has inherited her Grandmothers house and is desperate to get it fixed up. With Max been a carpenter by trade, he's more than happy to help her work on the house.....and that's when he stumbles across a naked Rosie and everything changes. There's always been an attraction between them but suddenly they're really seeing each other, and once their eyes are opened, it's the start of a really sweet romance. Throw in a chihuahua called Cupcake and a bad tempered old cat that I absolutely adored and the giggles soon start coming.

This is the first book I've read by this author but it definitely won't be the last. So Good is the first book in a new series and I can't wait to see what the second book brings.
