Welcome back to the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KU Book Reviews + the 1-Click Addict Support Group. This week brings a very bad good boy and a Buy It review for one of my favorites! Enjoy!
RATING: BUY IT
I’ve known Atticus for less than two days, yet I think I was meant to love him from the beginning of my life.
I don’t really know that I can write a review to do justice to Sawyer Bennett’s Atticus, but I’ll try. Just… bear with me, okay? This isn’t actually the first time I’ve read this particular book—but this story was one I had no qualms in revisiting. I loved it the first time, and this time? I loved it even more.
This isn’t a romance novel, not in the traditional sense. What it is, instead, is a love story between a woman—Hazel—and two very important things: her sense of self, and her rescue dog, Atticus. And it is beautiful. It’s full of feeling and heart—it moved me to tears again—but in true Sawyer Bennett style, it’s also full of laughs. Which maybe makes it the perfect book.
Atticus might be about the world’s worst good dog, but it’s also about so much more. Like family and forgiveness and friendship. And, as I snuggled up with my own two pups, I found myself marveling once again at how effortlessly Ms. Bennett shared that message without overdoing it.
Not to mention how she made such a bad good dog one of the all-time best romance heroes I’ve ever encountered.
“That dog changed me. For the very better.”
As of 11.11.2018, Atticus is available with Kindle Unlimited.
