TRACKING YOU (Redwood Ridge #2)

TRACKING YOU                                          KELLY MORAN

Love isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent.

Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.

Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.

MY REVIEW:
     Wow, this author took the simple friend to lover and made it so much more.  This had so much drama, emotion, humor, laughter, tenderness, and tears.  I love stories with a family unit and boy the O’Grady boys are it.
     You see the older O’Grady who has now passed on, which was the father to the three O’Grady boys, started Animal Instincts clinic.  Like their father all three are veterinarians.  Drake the oldest and a widower is a surgery vet, who sees patients too.  Cade the youngest brother and is engaged to Avery, the office manager, is the in-house vet.  The middle brother and the one the story revolves around, Flynn, he makes house calls, travels, and also does in-house visits too.  Along with his vet assistant and best friend Gabby Cossette. 
     The thing is that is unique about Flynn is no one but his family and Gabby thought he was capable of making it through the vet program.  Especially, when his dad passed away during the program and he lost all hope of moving on.  You see Flynn is deaf.  But he did at the push of a good dedicated friend, Gabby.  From the age of five the now at thirty, Gabby had been by his side.  In kindergarten when she came to their school new and he was the only one who would play with her.  She was in love.  She didn’t know it so was he.
     Especially, when he found out years later, that she had asked her parents that first day to take her to the rec center to learn how to do sigh language, so she could talk to her new friend.  They did just that.  She always was there to include him and make his life easier.  Even tried to be his wingman when it stabbed her in the heart.
     Anything to make it easier and make him happier.  They knew each other the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Yet, they were holding the most important piece of information how they really felt about one another.  Then one day a kiss, changes everything.
     Doubt, family, fears, feelings, jealousy, and trust creep in and friendship gets tested.  All the characters were all encompassing you really felt a part of them and theirs.  I give this book 5++++ Stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at
