The Summer of No Attachments by Lori Foster
Release Date - June 22, 2021
Veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to move on from her current relationship. She and her boyfriend don't mesh, and she should have realized they were a lousy match a long time ago. She's ready to have some fun without being tied down or restricted. Her first step is to help her assistant and friend Hope find a place to call her own. That leads her to meet a newcomer to town who just purchased a lakefront home that has an apartment over the garage that Hope could move into immediately.
When she meets Corbin Meyer and his son, she can't help but fall for Corbin's son. After all, the very shy pregnant dog her practice just took on willingly goes to Justin. If the dog thinks Justin is okay, how can Ivey turn her back on him and his dad? Soon, she's spending a lot of time and becoming a big part of their lives. But is she really ready to bounce from one relationship into another where someone else's needs always have to come first?
I am a sucker for storylines where a single dad is doing everything he can to improve a child's life. Corbin is magical for that reason. Justin's mother is an addict and never was the mother Justin needed. She also never told Corbin about his son. The two have to adjust to their new relationship, which makes it clear that Corbin has to carefully balance his new role with his new romance.
As an added bonus, Corbin's brother shows up and happens to be the perfect match for Hope, if Hope is able to get past an abusive episode from her past. I loved that there were two romances in one. That made this book the perfect lazy summer day read.
