A millionaire businessman. A vegan, animal-loving personal assistant. A small town called True Love. When you mix these three ingredients together, you have a clean, contemporary “Animal Sanctuary” romance novel written by Eliza Boyd.
No Kidding in Love is Boyd’s second installment of her Animal Sanctuary romance series. (I posted about her first book in the series, A New Leash on Love, a few months ago). I enjoyed her first book in that series so much, I was excited to read the second book (
due to my own
’s release in November, I had to postpone reading and reviewing Boyd’s)
. Now that I’ve had time to complete No Kidding in Love, I’m happy to report I enjoyed her second book, too.
Different primary characters than found in A Leash on Love (although some characters from the first book migrate to this one), and a focus on farm animals (primarily goats), this story weaves humor and love for animals into a romance story involving a millionaire (Trent) reluctant to become involved with any woman due to heartaches he experienced years before. His personal assistant, Macy, however, has been secretly in love with the man for years. She, too, experienced loss prior to coming to work for him. However, Trent’s gentlemanly manners, his brilliance in business, and his kind family of origin make their mark upon Macy’s heart. Can she continue to keep her secret as the two travel to True Love, Arizona, where, once again, they spend a week with his family and she begins volunteering
the Animal Sanctuary? Can he continue to push his own feelings for her away as they spend more time together in a town known to bring couples together?
Boyd’s characters are likeable (although I admit to becoming frustrated with Trent). Of course, I
LOVE the animal sanctuary concept, and bringing goats into the story versus the usual dogs and cats is unique and fun! (especially talking about the baby goat!) And weaving Macy’s skill of event planning to help raise funds for the sanctuary is an added
bonus – she’s not just a rich guy’s personal assistant!
Boyd has authored many clean romance books – it’s definitely “her jam!” She writes about small towns and about billionaires. I’m sure I’ll be adding more of her work to my “to-read” list this year.
For a delightful, clean romance read this winter or during February (Valentine’s Day!!), pick up a copy of Eliza Boyd’s No Kidding in Love. If you love clean romance, fun characters, and rescue animals, you’ll enjoy this book. No kidding!
