Can’t Touch This
By Tess Hunter
I don’t want to touch it.
I really, really don’t.
He’s egotistical, crass, and my patient’s owner—which makes him totally off limits.
Yep, that’s right. He owns the wiener I’m currently working on.
A wiener dog—get your dirty mind out of the gutter.
I’ve also worked on his spoodle, his cocker-shitzu, and a cheagle—don’t ask. (And no, it’s not a sexual position.)
It doesn’t help that he also represents most of my joint-owned veterinary practice’s small clientele. We’d only just opened the doors a few months ago, and in he strode with a yelping Taco Terrier. One haughty look at our sparkling new facilities, he’d demanded royal treatment, even though I was currently finger deep up a squalling tom cat.
Ever since then, he expects me to serve him.
Any time. All the time.
Him and his revolving zoo of dogs.
One of these days, I’m going to swat him for being such a pompous ass but I can’t deny the way he handles his charges makes me want to see past the ‘do as I say and don’t ask questions’ barking exterior.
But then last week…he caught me staring at his um, cough, package.
His bossy commands switched to a cocky smirk.
He gave me permission to do something I promised myself I would never ever do.
I can touch it.
If I want…
It’s no secret that Pepper Winters wrote this. So of course when she revealed writing a ROMCOM under a pen name I about DIED! She’s so good at everything she does. The characters- the dark, light, good, bad, funny… she can write it all.
I did NOT want this book to end. I laughed out loud, I swooned, I cried.
“I shed my skin of Vesper Fairfax— co-owner and perfect student— and became a sexual minx instead.”
I love that Vesper is a vet. It just flows so well the connection that her and Ryder have over animals. They share the same passion and that’s so rare. Vesper is strong and independent with a few secrets under that set of scrubs she wears everyday. She learns new things about herself -and her sex life- all the while falling for the hot sweet talking dog rescuer that is willing to push those secrets to the past.
Ryder has a few secrets of his own. Just how kinky is he exactly?! Oh my gosh! Ryder is a man of many personalities in the bedroom- and out of it. He seriously has it all; Money, a huge heart, and a huge something else! The way he cares for his animals says a lot about him. He can go from loving and caring to hot and saucy in a heartbeat. Ryder and Vesper’s flirting made me smile so much my face hurt.
“Having her sitting on my furniture, drinking my alcohol, eating my food, and hugging my pets… it just made me want it forever.”
All funny banter and sex talk aside, Ryder and Vesper fell for each other so hard. SO hard emotions were running high, some old pasts came back and haunted them for a little while. But fear not, things have their funny little way of working themselves out.
Hot sexy talk, and oodles of puppies and kitties… Nailed it! I can’t wait for Can’t Own This!
