Allie can't believe her luck. This summer she gets to do the one thing she loves the most, be around dogs.
It works out great, especially since Allie's mother owns a dog grooming shop. With a little mention of starting up a doggy day care, Allie is officially a dog-sitter in the shop, and she gets paid for it.
Being in charge of a doggy day care sure does has its benefits, like being able to see the new guy in town, Jack, who just so happens to love dogs and decides to let his own dog, Barkley, stay at the day care. But his sweetness towards the dogs and very attractive looks just doesn't excuse how much of a jerk-boy he is.
Of course there is always company that isn't really wanted, and for Allie it's Megan, the very rich and very snobby girl who happens to have one of the meanest and most unfriendly poodles around, Tallulah. It's bad enough that Megan just can't keep her paws off of Jack, but also owning a dog who happens to pick on other dogs is just so inexcusable for Allie.
But why is it that this sometimes nice jerk-boy, Jack, is becoming more interested in Megan then he is in Allie? And why is it that whenever Allie is with a pack of dogs in public, something has to go terribly wrong? Allie just doesn't know why everything bad has to happen to her. But maybe, just maybe, there is still a chance for Allie to make everything she ever dreamed of officially work out -- like her first kiss.
Another great addition to the FIRST KISSES line of books, PUPPY LOVE is both charming and satisfying. The interaction between Allie and Jack is what makes this book worth reading, since they will make you believe that anyone can find the perfect person for their first kiss.
