Gary Sanchez credits a therapy dog as aiding him with his recovery while in the hospital. He understands how important those visits were and decides to pay the experience forward once released. Adopting Angie was the first step in that process. Gary soon learned that his special canine had enough love and patience to aid those in need and to help him with the next stage of his own recovery.

Doctor Mirman Hamardi vividly remembers his life as a child. The love and support his mother gave him helped Mirman to achieve his dreams. His attraction to Gary comes as a surprise after their initial meeting, but he cannot deny enjoying their time together. Will his past trauma be too much for him to accept Gary and Angie in his life, or does Angie have enough magic to heal one more wounded soul?

Canine TLC is Deirdre O'Dare’s latest release in the Canine Cupids series. The importance of healing mentally and physically, learning to be patient with others and learning to face fears were important messages throughout the tale. Mirman hit on how scars aren’t just visible and it made me sit down to access how many scars I’ve hidden in my lifetime and how I should try to heal those wounds instead of letting them fester.

The story has a positive message but Deirdre throws us a bone and adds a touch of erotic spice. I’ve come to enjoy reading this series. I never know which subject matters will be touched on and I’m always guaranteed a good read. Those who’ve enjoyed the series may wish this tale was a bit longer, as do I, but it’s packed full of what we’ve come to love.
