Book Summary:

Doug’s human, Julie, has been adrift since she lost her mom (which is strange, because she’s usually pretty good with directions). Doug just wants Julie to be happy, and he doesn’t think she’s going to get there while she’s seeing her married boss, Luke. What’s worse, she’s saying if things don’t work out with Luke, she might end up like her lonely cat-lady neighbor. Horrified by the prospect of a sad Julie and untrustworthy feline companion, Doug decides it’s time for an intervention.

Despite his short legs and some communication roadblocks, Doug sets out on a quirky, sweet, and hilarious mission to find his rescuer the love she deserves. Though he doesn’t totally understand the strangeness of human relationships, he knows he can’t give up on Julie – after all, being a rescue dog works both ways…


Doug the Pug is determined to find his human, Julie, the love of her life. Julie is attracting the wrong sort. She fell for a guy who is married and just a bald-faced liar. So, Doug is going to play cupid and maneuver Julie toward someone else. Someone that Doug likes!

I love that most of this story is told through Doug’s eyes…and mouth. It truly makes it absolutely adorable. Now, it is a simple read. But I found myself laughing and rooting for Doug!

This a such a cute and charming story! I absolutely fell in love with this dog and this story! (I am a pug mom and they are the funniest little dogs!)

Need a quick, adorable love story, THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
