Series: Animal Magnetism #1
Published by Berkley
But when animal-loving Lilah Young crashes into his life, Brady can’t help but take notice of her. Their chemistry is undeniable and neither one of them is able to stop thinking of the other and let it go. Instead, Brady agrees to stay a month with Dell and Adam, his foster brothers and good friends with Lilah until he can fix their helicopter that needs a good upgrade.
While I instantly loved Jill Shalvis’s writing style, I did not feel the urgency to blaze through this book like I thought I did. Animal Magnetism is a quick and easy read, one that will make you laugh out loud and make you grin like a silly child. But apart from the dynamite dialogue and amazing characterization, I didn’t feel like that plot progressed as much as I liked.
For most of the book, there is that lingering fact that Brady will be leaving in a month and while Lilah and Brady seem be developing a relationship rather than a no-string-attached agreement on sex, I still wished there was something more to it than just that.
I’m interested in checking out Animal Attraction, hoping that my love for the characters overrides any lingering feelings I had for this one.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
