Ruff Around the Edges - Roxanne St. Claire

Aidan Kilcannon thought he would be in the Army for life, but when his best friend, Charlie Spencer, is killed in action, his plans change.  As Charlie is dying, he makes Aidan promise to get his dog Ruff back to Bitter Bark and to take care of him.  Wanting to honor his best friend's dying wish, Aidan calls his dad, Daniel "The Dogfather" Kilcannon for help.  Once Ruff arrives in Bitter Bark, Daniel informs his son that there is a paper stating that the dog was left to Charlie's sister, Rebecca "Beck" Spencer.  

Charlie and Beck were raised by her Aunt Sarah and Uncle Mike when their parents were killed in a car accident.  It just so happens that Beck is here staying in Bitter Bark for awhile because her Uncle Mike had a stroke and he and Aunt Sarah need help running their pizza place Slice of Heaven.  Aidan reluctantly takes Ruff over to Beck because he doesn't have any proof that Aidan wanted him to have the dog.  Ruff is a big, rambunctious, bad dog and Aidan is hoping Beck will change her mind once she sees him.  Unfortunately, Beck is just as stubborn as Aidan and she wants Ruff to help her heal over the loss of her brother, just as Aidan does.

As Beck and Aidan spend more time together between making pizza at Slice of Heaven or dealing with Ruff, sparks start to fly.  These two souls who both feel lost in a new life that they weren't expecting to have, start to form a strong bond.  Aidan is all ready to jump feet first into something more serious but Beck has reservations because everyone she has ever loved has died.  It takes a serious leap of faith for these two to get to their happy ending, but they finally do in such a great way.

As always, I just adore Roxanne St. Clair's books.  She has wonderful characters that go on such an emotional journey together to get to their happy ending.  Aidan is just a sweet, sexy military man and Beck is sweet, friendly and just wants a big family again.  Read this book, you will not regret it.

Ruff Around the Edges
Ruff Around the Edges - Roxanne St. Claire Only through the power of love can a broken soul find the courage to heal. The beauty of that adage is that Ms. St. Claire and her Kilcannon clan don't just use it for the two legged warriors, but for the four legged ones as well. Ruff Around the Edges is one dog's quest to unite two broken hearts and create a family. Ruff has seen war, loss and despair, yet he manages to keep hope alive for a soldier and a sister coping with a tragic loss. Brought together by pain Aidan and Beck learn the meaning of faith through the eyes of love and the heart of a dog. Totally cuddleworthy masterpiece.

Bad to the Bone - Roxanne St. Claire

Roxanne St. Claire has a way of bringing out your emotions with every book she writes.  I admit, I get teary eyed reading every one of Roxanne's books.  She even warned her readers that this one WILL make you cry and boy did it....big, sobbing crying involved in this one!  

Molly Kilcannon is a single mother who got pregnant her freshman year of college during her Thanksgiving break.  Molly had to leave UNC Chapel Hill to go to college locally but she managed to still become a veterinarian.  The only way Molly has been able to be the person she is now is because of her wonderful family.  Prudence "Pru" Anne Kilcannon is now 13 years old, beautiful and smart and Molly couldn't be any prouder.  Molly wished Pru's dad lived to have met his daughter, but unfortunately he died just after she was conceived.  No one in Molly's family knew who Pru's dad was except for her deceased mother.  Imagine Molly's surprise when Pru's dad is actually alive and well and back in Bitter Bark, NC.

Trace Bancroft was the "bad boy" of their high school years and the guy Molly crushed on.  He never forgot his special night with Molly, even when he had to quickly leave Bitter Bark and ended up in trouble spending 14 years in jail.  Now Trace is back with his dog, Meatball who is in need of medical attention.

The attraction between these two is still there in spades.  While Trace and Molly try to figure out their relationship, they realize they need to tell Pru the truth.  Trace is hesitant to tell Pru just yet and Molly agrees to wait until Pru's special project is finished.  All hell breaks loose one day and everyone's life is turned upside down.  It will take an act love and determination to fix everything.

It has been a while since I have sided with the underdog right from the beginning.  Trace has grown so much in the last 14 years.  He has owned up to his mistake and is trying to be a better man.  The way Trace feels for Molly is just perfect and real.  Throw in a newly found daughter and he is finally complete.  Molly was just wading through life, trying to replace her mom in everyone's life but never really taking time for herself.  Maybe deep down she knew it was Trace or no one!  And of course his dog, Meatball who was too cute!  By far, this is my favorite book in the story and my favorite cover!  I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!
