    ~4.5~This is a story about a boy and his (lost) dog, and about the dog (now drenched, dirty, and hungry) and another boy who rescues him. And finally it's about both boys and THEIR dog. Some books are so fluffy, it's like eating cotton candy: all sugar, no substance. And some books are so gritty, you need a shot of vodka to dull the pain. But THIS book is refreshingly simple, like a fresh, organic, juicy strawberry is simple: perfectly sweet, delicious, satisfying.

And finally it's about both boys and THEIR dog. Some books are so fluffy, it's like eating cotton candy: all sugar, no substance. And some books are so gritty, you need a shot of vodka to dull the pain. But THIS book is refreshingly simple, like a fresh, organic, juicy strawberry is simple: perfectly sweet, delicious, satisfying. Finders Keepers is a true-to-life, feel-good story about two men who have a real Meet Cute—first via text/phone and later face-to-face—and click on every level: they never run out of things to talk about; they have palpable sexual attraction; they like being outdoors, especially walking on the beach, LOVE kissing (each other), and get along like a house on fire. I j'adore all three MCs (yes, I'm including Wicket the sassy dog, because he makes this story and is absolutely a character in his own right). Griffin likes his job as a front desk hotel manager. He gets a big kick out of his 70-something-year-old landlady, Bernice (who is a fabulous secondary character!), and doesn't think twice about saving a scared, muddy dog and taking care of him until his daddy can come get him. Dane is so grateful to Griffin and feels a tug toward the kind man who rescued his dog. Dane isn't a complicated guy. He works in retail, gets on with his parents, and is all around mellow and ready to settle down. There is absolutely no relationship angst here. NONE. The guys fall for each other rather quickly, but the way the story unfolds makes this instant connection truly believable. I loved that Walker took time to develop the relationship. We are not TOLD the guys are perfect together; we SEE it (the story is told in a dual first-person POV).Finders Keepers doesn't feel overly fluffy or insubstantial. Not everything in life has to be hard. Sometimes people really do meet and fall in love with no drama or misunderstanding. Not everyone's life story involves bad parenting, homophobia, abuse, or violence. I was never bored, not for a moment, even though the most exciting plot point is Griffin's landlady falling ill. But, like I said, Bernice and K (her longtime boyfriend but don't call him that) are awesome characters who add humour and poignancy to the plot. Bernice is a hoot! Walker has really stepped up her game when it comes to the Hot & Sexy. This book is fairly steamy! And, HELL YES, that makes me giddy!I didn't want this book to end. When it did, I felt like I had misplaced a warm, cuddly blanket. This story made me HAPPY, and that's the best recommendation yet. N.R. Walker+ Dog on cover=

They were so adorable!-Wicket, the dog. He had a big personality in a small package, but the best part is that his role in the book never became cartoonish and over the top.-Bernice and K. Bernice is Griffin's hippy landlady and K....her "friend."They were a hoot, and I hope one day to be as cool as them when I'm their age. -TEXT Messages!!!! I'm a total whore for relationships that start via text/email/social media. In FK it kind of started with a text. -Alternating POVs. I swear I almost wept the first time I read an NR book with alternating POVs, and I was ecstatic we got both guys' thoughts and feelings. -Relationship development. We're with them from the start and although there's nothing that goes wrong between Dane and Griffin I was never bored. They were a joy to read. In the end, I can't say enough good things. I needed this book in my life, it proved a great escape from reality that had me smiling from ear to ear from beginning to end. 5 Stars.

    3.5 stars. It pains me to write this review, but this book just didn't work for me. The beginning started off amazing, and then somewhere during the halfway point I seemed to loose interest. The only thing that made me finish the book was Dane's dog, Wicket. He stole my heart. And I'm really tempted to get a dog, even if there's a chance that my mom might kick me out and never come visit me. An arc was provided in exchange for an honest review.

We mere humans didn't have quite as much fun trying to get him clean again =P Griffin is new to town and is out exploring before starting his new job, one day he finds a what appears to be abandoned small and muddy brown dog. He decides to take it home and try to find its owner. It all started with the text he sent to the number attached to the dogs collar.Dane is in a panic, his beloved dog Wicked has run away and he can’t be out there looking. He’s stuck at a work conference, feeling truly miserable and praying his fur baby will be alright. Then he gets the text that will change his life: “I think I found your dog…”That text marks the start of something new for both of them. It starts as a connection to Wicket but soon grows into something more. Both feel that there is something special between them, a connection they can’t explain and don’t want to. Their relationship is borderline insta-love. But it worked. It didn’t feel like it came out of the blue but grew into something real and wonderful and so, so sweet.Bernice was a hoot and a half, special brownies and all. She and K were great secondary characters and everything quirky hippies should be. Not sure if I’d survive having them as neighbours or renting from them myself, but I had a lot of fun whenever they were around. I never quite knew what to expect.Then there was Wicket. I just loved and adored him. This fluffy ball of cuteness sure made my heart melt, with every lick and cuddle. He can definitely count me in with the hoards worshipping at his paws ;) There wasn't much seriousness to this story, it was completely angst free. Backstories for the characters were all but non-existing. But you know what? I didn't mind that. I didn’t mind that at all. It didn't feel lacking in any way. It felt like we were here and now, in the present where the past and future didn’t matter much. For some reason it worked for this book, without it having this shallow feel to it. It focused on what was most important.Finders Keepers is a definite must read for all dog lovers out there. It’s cute and fun and everything a feel-good story should be.A copy of this book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

Hi. I left some voicemails… I think I found your dog. Dane Hughes left his beloved pooch, Wicket, with his Mum and Dad in Caloundra while he attends a mandatory work conference in Surfers Paradise. When his mum calls frantic because Wicket's run away, Dane is crushed but unable to do anything about it.Then he receives the text message and some voice mails from a guy who says he found a dog.Griffin Burke got a promotion which meant moving from Brisbane to Coolum Beach. He has some time before the new job starts and sets out to explore his new home base. While hiking Mount Coolum Griffin finds a muddy Wicket. Thinking at first he belongs to some other hikers he leaves the dog at the National Park, but returns the next day to find the dog still there - wet, muddy and miserable. He finds a name tag with a mobile phone number and so begins a beautiful romance.Told in a dual POV, Dane and Griffin immediately hit it off. Since the conference won't end for several more days Griffin agrees to keep Wicket with him until Dane can come and get him. It's really cute the way Griffin takes Wicket with him on his adventures of exploring Coolum Beach and the way he keeps Dane in the loop through pictures, texts, and phone calls.Really, Finders Keepers is just a super sweet, super cute, low angst romance with the bonus of a cute dog. I loved Bernice and K, I loved how Dane and Griffin try to go slow, but really can't help wanting to be with each other, but mostly I love how N.R. Walker writes about normal people and situations, and how she takes every day living and shows how romance and love can be found in anything. Finders Keepers just hit the spot for me and made me happy while reading it and I found myself smiling about the story even days after reading it.Recommended!Advanced Review Galley copy of Finders Keepers provided by N.R.

    4.5 stars from me. Yes, this was sugary sweet but it's so nice to read a [practically] angst-free story nowadays. A HEA, a bit of a back story to Griffin's landlady Bernice, and a wonderful dog called Wicket who brought his owner Dane, and the probable love of his life Griffin, together. Cute. Ooh, btw, this is Coolum Beach.... gorgeous eh??.....

Griffin and DaneFor me, pets and honestly kids in romances can, at times, be annoying. They can pull you away from a moment, cock block that perfect scene or simply draw you away from the relationship that is being developed. But this sweet dog did none of that. If anything…he did the exact opposite. Wicket was magnificent. I loved this dog to pieces. He was so much a part of this couple, their relationship and their story…a true secondary character all on his own. I mean Wicket I swear had lines and full on adorable conversations with these men. *melts*This story just brought a smile to my face from start to finish. A story with no angst but still rich in depth and strongly developed characters. And I would be remiss if I did not mention Bernice. My heavens…this lady was everything. I adored her from her first moment on page. The lines this woman had…her sass, he glassy eyed wit…I am grinning like a fool and I did not even eat a brownie. So if you are in need of a perfect feel good read…look no further. I mean seriously…if you have not bought it for the cover alone I am not sure what to say. *An ARC was received from the Author in exchange for an honest review*

When you can only wish you were half as cool as the landlady when you grow up? When you think about the [mumble mumble] and think [mumble mumble mumble] as your heart goes awwww (I can't go posting spoilers now, can I?!). Then this NOT the book for you... Just kidding!!! This book is delightful and you should just go buy it now! This is a cute, fun, sexy read. It makes you want to head up to the Sunshine Coast and visit all the locations noted in the book. It makes you want to bake. It potentially will make you want to mow some lawns (or at least to sit back with a couple of beers and watch someone doing it for you). It makes you happy in that intangible way a good romance does and it heats the pages as it does so. I loved this book! I love the way Griffin and Dane meet and how their relationship progresses; I love the secondary characters and the way they are woven into the story; I love the ever-loving guts out of that little ewok of a dog! This is not a slow burn romance. It's not insta-love either. The romance gathers momentum beautifully and you are very much engaged in an HEA. A recommended read.

It's love at first impression when the two MC's start their growing emotions even before they meet in person. But you can feel that the connection is there through the chat conversations and phone call. How the author write the scenes and build the reader anticipation was amazing. Even it's insta-love and both Dane and Griffin had laid their feeling on the table, but its written in medium pace and slow. The chemistry was there right from the start, the sexual tensions between the two MC's were also feels right on it place.The secondary characters were also lovable. I really like Griffin's landlady, Bernice and her 'no filter' mouth that put Griffin's face in fifty shade of red so many times. And I blushes along with Griffin each time she teasing him.I love the way the author include the dog feelings by showing its mind through his cute expressions. It's another plus side in this story. Finders Keepers is a fun, sweet and heartwarming story with a dog that took part as a matchmaker and finding his daddy a new lover and have their HEA in cute and simple way.N.R. Walker never fails to amaze me with her simply ordinary story but wrapped in amazing writing. “Finding him that day was the best thing that ever happened to me. Because then I found you.” “Finders keepers?” “For always.” Highly Recommended!*ARC is kindly provided by the Author in exchange of a fair, unbiased and honest review*

It is not part of the plot. in fact the plot basically is that both men do anything for the dog. The problem is that the list of actions taken by Dane do not include nor allow him time to go and get the dog before going out for the night. ooops. I think there was even a wrong name used but I might have been confused about who was speaking. I was oten confused because their voice was pretty much identical. Walker is normally above such simple problems. And I did find several things so poorly done that I was jarred right out of my happy place. But it just kept putting me back to the happy place. Griffin and Dane are super cute together even before they are together. Meeting through Dane's lost dog was silly but adorable. I liked them together, I liked them with their families and with Griffin's neighbour. The men recognize that things are moving quickly and so hold back a bit but only a teensy tiny bit. A tiny bit of drama in their world and they realize they better just accept it for what it is. Sticky sweet love. And I loved that. I think my favourite moment was Griffin telling his mum about Dane. He knows he has to tell her. That it is not right for Dane's parents to know and not his. She needs to know that not only has he met someone but that this someone is very important. He does not wait to call her in private. He calls her right that second and tells her with Dane listening in. super awww. The ending continues along in syrupy goodness and we get our HEA. A happily every after with a great nametag!

    This failed to hold my affection past the first couple of chapters, and then at the three quarter mark, lost my attention too. These characters were truly too conflict free and the story lacked complexity for me. It felt like a first book by a first author who was playing it safe, vastly different to the experience I had with "On Davis Row," which I loved. This is sweet and fluffy and cute but also predictable, monotonous and stale.

    Super sweet, super sexy, super low angst, and exactly what I needed. I loved the characters and story. If you are looking for fun, hot, funny, and no unnecessary drama this is perfect. I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
