This wasn’t supposed to happen. Especially to a guy like me.
I’ve been called a dog, I admit it. Maybe more than once. The truth is I’ve dated a lot of women, but I can’t see myself settling down. I’m just not that kind of guy…or dog.
Try telling that to my mom and sister.
The two of them have managed to trick me into taking a vacation in some backwater town. My cousin Doug lives here—as if that doesn’t tell me everything I need to know about Truth Harbor.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my cousin. He’s sort of awkward and pitiful, but he’s still family.
At least he’s finally convinced Claire, the woman he’s crazy about, to go on a date with him. He tells me he’s in love with her. The poor guy sees wedding bells in their future.
But then Doug gets called away on an emergency and asks me to take Claire out instead. He wants me to build him up, to tell her what a great guy he is, to help him win her heart.
I never should have agreed to it.
Because now this dog is the one falling for Claire.
