Vet school drop-out Tess Grasso dreams of having her own pet therapy business, but she meets one disastrous obstacle after another. There’s no denying she has a way with animals, so in the meantime she puts her skills to use at a local no-kill shelter. Between helping her furry companions and a budding relationship with fellow dog lover Mason Redding, Tess begins to find fresh confidence…
What Tess doesn’t know is that Mason is recovering from an accident, hoping to get back to his pro-baseball career. He’s afraid the truth will ruin everything-and he’s right. But in the midst of hurt and betrayal, a free-spirited stray Husky enters their lives, and teaches them a few things about faith, love and forgiveness.

My Rating: 4 stars
My Forever Home is the third story in the Rescue Me series. And once again my heart was captured by not only this couple but a stray Husky with definite opinions of his own (in his own unique voice).
Tess and Mason make an interesting couple, each with a love of dogs, strays of the world and the work they do. Unfortunately, Tess is unaware of Mason’s real job, as a professional baseball player and a rather famous one as well. That oversight on Mason’s part will matter, and may even be the ending of something between them that could be amazing.
I enjoyed Mason and Tess’ romance, it’s a slow burn in many ways and they are both likable people who fit well together. I adored John Ronald who stole scenes with his personality, his voice, his devotion and dedication to a rescue of his own. We get to visit again with old friends, and as always, the shelter is the center of this world.
If you’re in the mood for a good story, a tender romance, a bit of hiding in plain sight and love animals at all… then My Forever Home is a story you’ll want to pick up. I had such a good time with this story and would recommend this and the entire series to any Romance reader.
