Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalvis

Brady is coming to Sunshine, Idaho to visit his foster brothers, Dell and Adam. Their foster father left some money to the men and Dell and Adam bought land there and started a business. Dell is a vet and Adam trains rescue dogs. Brady was in the army and is a pilot. Dell and Adam bought an old helicopter and they want Brady to fix it for them and be their pilot. But Brady is not the type to stay in one place. On his first day in Sunshine a woman rear ends his truck. Fortunately he was not in it at the time. Lilah, a Sunshine native, does not have a good track record with cars. She apologizes and promises to pay him for the damage. She was distracted by the animals in her car. Brady and Lilah are attracted to each other but both say they do not want a relationship especially because Brady is only in town for a month. What will happen? Will he love and leave her?

If you like romance, read this book. I liked the characters of the people and the animals!

From the author:
Co-owner of the town’s only kennel, Lilah Young has lived in Sunshine, Idaho, all her life. Pilot-for-hire Brady Miller is just passing through. But he soon has Lilah abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire.
It’s Brady’s nature to resist being tied down, but there’s something about Lilah and her menagerie that keeps him coming back for more.
Excerpt:
“Legend says that if you take a moonlight dip, you’ll supposedly find your one true love,” Lilah said.
“Of course.” Brady nodded. “It’s always midnight. So, do you swim often?”
“Never at midnight.”
He couldn’t help it, he laughed.
With a slow shake of her head and a smile curving her mouth, she reached out and touched a finger to his curved lips. “You’re a cynic,” she chided.
It’d been a long time since someone had touched him, unexpected or otherwise. A very long time, and he wrapped his finger around her wrist to hold her to him, letting his eyes drift closed.
“For how big and tough you are,” she said very softly, “you have a kind mouth.”
He opened his eyes and met her gaze. “You should know it’s not kindness I’m feeling at the moment.”
“No?” A brow arched, and the light in her eyes spoke of amusement, along with a flash of heat. “What do you feel?”
Dangerous territory there. Nothing new for him. He did some of his best work in dangerous territory. “Guess.”
Still smiling, she leaned in so that their lips were nothing but a whisper apart. Even surrounded by a duck, two puppies, and a potbellied piglet, she still smelled amazing. He wanted to yank her in and smell her some more, but he held very still, absorbing her closeness, letting her take the lead.
When she spoke, every word had her lips ghosting against his, her breath all warm, chocolately goodness. “I’m more of a doer,” she whispered, and kissed him.
