Carter Embree has always hoped to be rescued from his productive, tragically boring, and (slightly) ethically compromised life. But when an urchin at a grocery store shoves a bundle of fluff into his hands, Carter goes from rescuee to rescuer—and he needs a little help.
Sandy Corrigan, the vet tech who helps ease Carter into the world of dog ownership, first assumes that Carter is a crazy-pants client who just needs to relax. But as Sandy gets a glimpse into the funny, kind, sexy man under Carter’s mild-mannered exterior, he sees that with a little care and feeding, Carter might be Super-Pet Owner—and decent boyfriend material to boot.
But Carter needs to see himself as a hero first. As he says good-bye to his pristine house and hello to carpet treatments and dog walkers, he finds that there really is more to himself than a researching drudge without a backbone. A Carter Embree can rate a Sandy Corrigan. He can be supportive, he can be a hero, he can be a man who stands up for his principles!
He can be the owner of a small dog.

Every time I read an Amy Lane book I wonder why I haven’t already read her entire backlist. Freckles was the same for me. It’s sweet, it’s wholesome, and there was a cozy little love story to go with it.
Life isn’t really simple for Carter. He adds most of its complications on his though so it shouldn’t be too shocking for him that his life isn’t smooth and ideal. Little does he know that this November his life will change completely and irrevocably for the best. His boyfriend has left him as they all eventually do typically after just a few short months. His job is sucking the life out of him especially since he knows that his firm is in the wrong this time. The quick trip to the supermarket for some basic yet much needed ulcer preventing medications leaves him as the owner of a small dog.
The insta-love Sandy sees going on between Carter and Freckles leaves him wanting to get to know even more about this unassuming pet owner. Sandy knows he’s not ideal relationship material. He too has failed relationships due to his very own shortcomings. Sandy is however getting his life to a place that he calls happy. He’s working as a vet tech while doing veterinary school the long way, a couple of classes a semester. He loves where his life is directed to go. Perhaps he can get the crazy-pants new small dog owner to see that a new boyfriend might go along nicely with a new dog.
Freckles has mastered the art of changing mens lives in her very short, very small life. She started with Carter then began her furry work on Sandy. She’s an adorable ball of accidental poops and fur and simply a must read. Her humans are there to assist her in making this book an interesting holiday read.
About Amy Lane
Amy Lane exists happily with her noisy family in a crumbling suburban crapmansion, and equally happily with the surprisingly demanding voices who live in her head.
She loves cats, movies, yarn, pretty colors, pretty men, shiny things, and Twu Wuv, and despises house cleaning, low fat granola bars, and vainglorious prickweenies.
She can be found at her computer, dodging housework, or simultaneously reading, watching television, and knitting, because she likes to freak people out by proving it can be done.
