Review: Got Me Wishing (Vet Shop Boys #2) by Casey Cox

Review: 4.5🌈

As much as I adored the beginning book in this series? Got Me Wishing just made the series and universe even better.

It brought in heavier themes such as addiction, animal abuse, forgiveness, redemption. It even weaves in kink shaming and how the judgements you make impact others. All done very sensitively and beautifully by the way. All while allowing the romance to remain center stage.

Yes, this story unpacks a lot besides a very romantic and emotionally rewarding love affair turned HEA.

Fulton Meyer, 34 yo vet, BFF to Noah Walters (Got Me Hoping #1), immediately turned into a favorite character of mine out of all the vets and peripheral people in and around the Vet Shop Boys Animal Clinic.

Prone to snarky lines, a funky fashion sense, and a seemingly endless supply of great t-shirts from Etsy that proclaim things like “I Kissed A Pug And I Liked It ~Kitty Purry”😂🙌… well there was just something about Fulton!

He needed his HEA! Plus there was some mystery going on as to why no man had ever stuck around.

Now in Got Me Wishing we get Fulton’s story. Casey Cox delivers the painful personal history that has made him who he is today, including the fact he’s so lonely. Except for all his cats of course. All eight of them.

Into Fulton’s crazy life comes Bishop Turner in one adorable “meet cute” scene turned lusty!

From poignant to adorable to funny to sexy, this introduces shouts destiny!

Trust me, you’ll be into this couple as quickly as they are … uh hem… into each other.

But the relationship? And actually getting to know one another? Each other’s layers? That take time .

This is a story of trust earned, pasts revealed, and love that comes slowly to those that need and deserve it.

I just love everything about this story. Beautiful elements, new characters, so many thoughtful moments between Fulton and Bishop as they explore their romance and future, as well as open up about their past.

If this is any indication where the rest of the series and romances are headed, I can’t wait.

Next up is poor befuddled, broken hearted Gus.

I highly recommend every story and in the order written. Take the journey with all the Vet Shop Boys. It’s one I myself am eagerly anticipating.

Vet Shop Boys series so far:

Got Me Hoping #1

Got Me Wishing #2

Got Me Looking #3- coming in January 2022

Synopsis:

A half-birthday + a second chance = one true love? As. If.

Who needs a man when I’ve got cuddly kittens?

No one’s ever wanted me once they discover my secret. I guess that’s why I’ve thrown myself into my work as a veterinarian, as well as become the proud paw-rent to my eight cat rescues. I’ve even managed to convince myself I’m purr-fectly happy being single.

So when Bishop, a handsome stranger, strikes up a conversation, I don’t expect it to lead to anything else. There’s no way a guy wanting to start over is interested in love. So why has Bishop got me wishing for something more?

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.
