“There’s lots of good banter. This is one of the things that McKinlay is good at. The romance between Mac and Gavin is sweet. But the author does put a lot of emphasis on trying to be funny. Some jokes hit the jackpot while other scenes seem to come across as trying a little too hard”

ABOUT A DOG is the first book in the Bluff Point series by Jenn McKinlay. McKinlay has written many bestselling mysteries but this is her very first Romance book. I’m a big fan of all her Mystery series so when I heard that she would be writing Romance, I knew I had to try it.

First off, I will say that this book is very light-hearted. It’s a perfect summer read if you just want something that you can breeze through. There’s quite a lot of emphasis on friendship in this book and actually the first few chapters really focus on introducing the new cast of characters in a fun way. While I did enjoy the banter between them, I did think that the pacing lagged a little bit. I personally thought it took too long to introduce the hero because we were so focused on Mac and her friends. But, that being said, it means that readers can look forward to the next books in the series because they are already very familiar with the cast.

Like I mentioned earlier, there’s lots of good banter. This is one of the things that McKinlay is good at. The romance between Mac and Gavin is sweet. But the author does put a lot of emphasis on trying to be funny. Some jokes hit the jackpot while other scenes seem to come across as trying a little too hard. It might just be me, but I think you need to really be in a good mood to be 100% into this book. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to book two and more of McKinlay’s Romances!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!
