A Stella Review: Roxy’s Recovery by Kim Breyon

RATING 4,5 out of 5 stars

As the newest veterinarian in the small town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Vaughn Winters doesn’t have time for relationships. He is too busy healing injuries and establishing his reputation as a trustworthy vet. But when a strange man waves him down on a stormy night seeking help for his injured dog, Vaughn simply can’t refuse.

Obviously homeless and with no means to pay for Roxy’s medical care, Vaughn throws caution to the wind and strikes a deal with the hesitant stranger that would allow Roxy the time to heal and provide some much needed TLC to his property as well. As the days pass, Vaughn’s curiosity grows. Alex’s dedication to the job is as surprising as the sexy tats hidden beneath his rugged clothes. What could have pushed this kind, hardworking man to the streets, or cast such dark shadows in his otherwise bright blue eyes?

Will six weeks be enough time to earn Alex’s trust? Or will asking questions cause him to tuck tail and run as soon as Roxy is able?
Roxy’s Recovery is a 61k standalone contemporary romance involving two men, a meddling sister, and a seriously sassy pug.

Roxy’s Recovery is an awesome reading, it called to my heart and I fell soon deep in love with the characters. The romance deals with some important themes, as being homeless, still the story was easy to read, there wasn’t too much angst, on the contrary, through all the novel I got a sense of positiveness, of joy and openness. The way Vaughn is ready to help Roxy and her owner with no hesitation, he goes ahead and decides to host both of them until Roxy will be fine. Alex has been hurt bad, it’s not easy to trust Vaughn but he had to, it can’t risk Roxy health. He has to wait and try to repay the young veterinarian trying to fix his properties. Week after week the two men learn to know each others and strong feelings start to rise between them.

I will definitely have a look at the other titles by Kim Breyon, I very much enjoyed this new release, I found ti well written and with amazing characters, but most of all it lightened my soul, it gave me hope, it’s a story full of love, and especially the love shown for the dogs let me see how a good job the author did.

The cover art by Cate Ashwood is lovely and well done, I love this artist style.

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
