I read this story in the anthology Hot In Here. I enjoyed it very much. The hero is a more "normal" man than some romance heroes. He is a lumberyard owner rather than a firefighter or EMT or military man. Those occupations automatically say "hero". However, the hero of this story is a normal man and his heroic tendencies are a bit subdued rather than flashy. He still wants to take care of those he loves; he does it without a uniform, though. The heroine rescues abused animals and this story revolves around them being introduced by a pair of Chihuahuas and falling in love along with the dogs. Big, tough Buck has a very soft spot for the abused little Chihuahua rescued and being fostered by Sadie. The dog, Tish, loves to steal his boxers or a sock or some other item of clothing. She builds a nest under the furniture and watches from it. He understands why she flinches when he reaches for her, and he is as gentle with Tish as he is with Sadie. As you can imagine, though, with a Chihuahua running around the yard waving his boxers like a flag, the story has the laughs as well as the heat for which Foster is known by her fans. The copyright is 2004, so it was written before I started grabbing each new Lori Foster book as it was released. I expected the story might be less polished and perhaps have a less interesting plotline than her newer works. I was mistaken. This is a very enjoyable story.

This story sucks I hated it and the three dollars i spent on it was the worst decision of my life

## Terrible. Three dollars is too much to ask for this book. I read this in an hour and ten minutes. And the story is ridiculous. The hero decribes the heroine as plain, spinsterish, bottoned up, cold, and prudish. As a matter of fact he says calling her plain is an understatement. Why does he want her so bad then? There has to be some kind of attraction. And he's constantly in the back yard with various women kissing and touching, generally has women falling at his feet because he is so gorgeous. So again I ask, why does he want her so bad? Do not waste your money on this.

A Lighthearted ‘Tail’ Originally published in 2004 in the anthology “The Truth about Cats and Dogs”, “Tailspin” is a lighthearted romp that touches on the seriousness of animal abuse and animal rescue. Those who follow Ms. Foster’s books and on social media know how important the care and treatment of animals is to her. Those who read her books know she writes strong, alpha males with protective streaks a mile along. Buck Boswell is one of those heroes. He’s bold, brash, and goes after what and who he wants. Who he wants is Sadie Harte, his neighbor and animal rescuer. By helping her rescue Tish, an abused Chihuahua, he also rescues Sadie. Sadie is innocent, vulnerable, and wears her heart on her sleeve. She doesn’t believe a guy like Buck would want anything to do with her. But as she watches him with Tish, she realizes they have more in common than she thinks. “Tailspin” gives us a humorous look at falling in love and insight into the care of rescue animals. Ms. Foster has ‘spun’ another ‘tail’ for your keeper shelf (or e-shelf).

Short, sweet, sexy and still packed with a lot of emotion and love. I read this story ages ago when it was part of an anthology but now that it's reissued on it's own I decided on a reread. And I still loved it. Buck was so hot and Sadie was such a sweetheart. Even though this was just a novella the story was just as satisfying as a full length novel. And my heart just melted reading about the interactions between the humans and the animals in the story. I love stories with pets in them and this one was just so aww worthy to read. Oh! Apparently Buck was the last of his group of friends to fall in love so if you want more novellas to read, I believe there are three other guys in the group that have stories to read. I may have read their story way back when but I'm going to look them up and reread them again. I really think all four stories should be reissued in one complete book so I don't have to go hunting them all down ;) Happy reading.
