SOMEBODY'S BABY,(Darling, VT #3)

SOMEBODY'S BABY                                       DONNA ALWARD

                                      Veterinarian Rory Gallagher chose a different path from his brothers, both of whom became first responders in the lovely little town of Darling, Vermont. Rory's always had an affinity for animals--and the ladies. Known for his impressive track record in breaking hearts, Rory never meant to hurt anyone; he's just never been in a hurry to settle down. It's not as if he needs to pay a visit to the town's famed Kissing Bridge to magically find love. He'll know The One when he sees her. . .right?

Oaklee Ferguson is the kid sister of Rory's best friend--and, even now that she's all grown up, remains immune to the pet-doctor's charms. When she shows up at Rory's clinic late one night--devastated after hitting a stray dog with her car--Rory's so-called -bedroom eyes- are the last thing on her mind. Still, his care and kindness toward the dog, and his concern for her feelings, catches Oaklee by surprise. . .and soon the two (and rescued dog makes three!) begin to share a deep connection that neither could have ever imagined. Could it be that love has been waiting for them by the bridge all along?

PAT'S REVIEW

A very nice story about two people that have had their hearts hurt in love, and now must find a way to trust another person again. Rory Gallagher is the town’s veterinarian and is surprised one night when Oaklee Ferguson shows up after hours and is not looking like herself at all. Once down stairs he realizes that she is trying to tell him that she hit a dog and it is in her back seat. He is surprised that she was able to put the animal in her car and hence this begins the awkward romance that begins to take place between the two of them. There are many hurdles, first he is her older brother best friend and for him it just seems strange to now be attracted to her as a women after years ago being hit by her brother when staring at her when they were in high school. The good point is he is playing pro hockey so he is not in town. second she told him about her crush she had on him when she was a younger and how she knew he protected her when her brother left town and that made her feel special even though she knew she could do nothing about it at the time. Now the biggest problem, they each had their heart broken his is sad and painful, but hers. She was dating someone since her Jr. Year in high school, and they went to college together and before the last semester was to begin they decided to go to Vegas and elope. The problem is when he left in the morning to run errands he never showed for the ceremony, and on top of that text her while he was on a plane saying that “this was on him not her”, mean while she spent her two days in Vegas alone which was supposed to be her honeymoon until she could leave on her flight. She had to borrow money from her brother but did not tell him the whole story afraid he would leave during the playoffs to destroy her ex. So for the last two years no one has known why she came back to town alone after college. When you get to the story when she tells Rory he freezes up like most guys and does not open up about his hurt and so when he realizes he is in love with he must gravel. That part is funny along with some other parts of the story. I cannot give this 5 stars because I did not like the end, and some parts in the middle just dragged a bit. Overall not a bad story. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
