Fabulous #RomCom – The Dog Sitter by Zara Stoneley – fantastic fun read1

One dog. Two strangers. An unfurgettable romance.

Wanted: someone nice, normal and trustworthy to housesit a beautiful cottage in the Lake District while the owner is away on a business trip. Must like dogs.

Wanting to escape from crap bosses and useless boyfriends, Becky jumps at the chance of being a dog sitter and the perfect escape – rest, relaxation and a very cute pooch called Bella.

But looking after Bella comes with a catch, namely gorgeous, brooding, Chris Hemsworth-worthy Ash James, who claims Bella is his dog and will stop at nothing to get her back!

Becky’s not about to hand over lovely Bella to any Tom, Dick or Ash.  She’s determined to watch every move Ash James makes…even if it gets her very hot under the collar.

My Review:

This is a hilarious, laugh out loud, romantic comedy that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face – absolutely brilliant!

Becky is a talented artist but has had her confidence and faith in her ability knocked by her now ex boyfriend who is also her ex boss! Fed up, she decides to escape for a month, house and dog sitting in the Lake District for a well known Instagrammer with millions of followers. The dog is the boisterous, bouncy and extremely cute Bella, featuring regularly on her owner’s posts but it seems that this delightful pooch is also claimed by Ashley James and he wants her back!

Get ready for hilarious shenanigans, building self confidence, beautiful artwork, steamy dreams and watery dips in amongst everything in this fantastic read. It is a story with great characters, lots of laughs and a lovely, heartwarming romance in a beautiful setting. Bella really is the star of the story but it is also about learning to trust yourself and your own abilities, not letting others put you down and finding love. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have no hesitation in highly recommending it.

Thank you to One More Chapter and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read, giggled my way through with a huge grin on my face and honestly reviewed.
