Hershey's Choice - Darlene Fredette (Giveaway - bookmark made by the author!)

4 Stars!

Britt may be Hershey’s choice, but can the boisterous Labrador convince his owner?
Engineer Ryan Jerome has a knack for designing the future but can’t create one for himself. When Ryan lets his dog, Hershey, take the lead, going to the park is never the same. Unintentional meetings, a soiled coat, and a meddling mother are a few of the obstacles in his way of convincing Britt he’s not a stalker. Will he accept his dog’s direction and open his heart to the beautiful woman with a side of crazy?

Ruined weddings, divorced parents, and disastrous relationships have left event planner Britt Wells a non-believer in happy-ever-after. She’s readying for a future in interior design with one last wedding to oversee. Complications arise when she learns a suspected stalker and owner of an unruly dog is related to her client. Falling for Ryan and Hershey were not part of the plan. Can she put aside her doubts in relationships and take a chance on love? 

An avid reader since childhood, Darlene loves to develop the stories swimming in her head. Following a career path in administration, she excelled in the art of editing and design, which eventually led to a position as Director of Administration and Marketing.
Now, making her dream come true to write full time, Darlene writes heartwarming contemporary romances with a focus on plot-driven page-turners.

Super cute!  This was a real nice romantic, flirty, but clean chick-lit type story. Just my genre!
This has a good spider-webby plot that will keep you turning the pages and wondering what will happen next.

I really liked the two main characters - Ryan and Britt (and of course, Hershey, the dog, even though I am not a dog person). They are fun and quirky and Ryan is the kind of leading man that grows on you. I loved all the flirting going on in here. That's what I really want in a romance - the flirting! The eye contact, the light touches, the subtle smiles, the suggestive comments - all this is what gets to my heart. I guess I am a hopeless romantic. I don't want explicit sex, to me that's not romantic, but all the flirty little moments - now that's romantic! Darlene is great at that - And this one has a lot. Almost enough to give you goosebumps.
I love the way she wrapped it up in a nice sweet ending too! And you know how important that is to me.

If you are looking for a clean, but fun flirty and quirky little romance - this is it. 
PS&BTW - you don't have to love dogs to love this book!I am not a dog lover, alas - I am a cat lover! I kind of felt like such a trader reading this book because I did fall in love with Hershey.
This is my 4th book by this author! She is a good solid romance writer.
Thank you Darlene for sending me your latest book for my honest review - always a pleasure!
