His dog, his fur baby, Wicket, has run away.

With a few days left before his new job starts, Griffin takes Wicket on some coastal adventures and sends Dane photos of their fun, and so the start of something new and kind of wonderful begins.Griffin might have moved to Coolum in search of a new life, but what he finds is so much more. What he gets to keep just might take some four-legged help.

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.

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=

I liked how growly he got every time Dane and Griffin started getting handsy with each other. Like I said, he was very cute. I loved Griffin's land lady and her man caller, K. They were both very funny and a lot of fun. I loved the way Beatrice had no filter and took pleasure in embarrassing Griffin when Dane was around which was often. Even though the relationship moved a bit quickly their feelings for each other didn't seemed rushed. They had a connection and great chemistry so their feelings felt very real and not instant. If your looking for something easy with zero angst then pick this one up dolls! Happy reading! xx

    Runaway pup results in a sweet romance starting with text, phone calls and pictures. In the words of Griffin... "It was tender rocking, deep kisses, spine-tingling, ball-aching, cock-throbbing good." This is one of those books where you just sit back and enjoy it. There's no struggles. No fights or drama. No other people trying to ruin it. No crazy self-doubts or insecurities leading to stupid misunderstandings or separations. It's just easy going, sweet fluff.I rather liked it.

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.

While out and about discovering his beautiful new town, he stumbles across a fluffy little dog that seems to be lost and scared. As all decent people would, Griffin takes the pup home and loves on him a ridiculously cute amount, finally calling the number on the dog tag and letting the owner know his dog is safe and sound. Dane Hughes is away on a work conference when he gets the news that his dog has “escaped” his parents’ house. In a panic but with nothing he can do being stuck miles away, Dane waits it out and hopes for the best. A few days later he gets a call from a stranger named Griffin, saying that his dog, Wicket, has been found and is being cared for up in Coolum. They agree to leave Wicket in Griffin’s care until Dane returns from his work trip, with the two young men deciding to communicate back and forth via text, calls and shared photos during that time. Brought together by an adorably intuitive dog, Griffin and Dane hit it off immediately. Conversation is effortless between the two, and soon enough both men begin to acknowledge that there is some serious relationship potential at play between them, especially once they get a glimpse of each other via shared selfies and realise they have the hots for each other physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Once Dane returns from his conference, he and Griffin begin to date, initially attempting to take things slow even though their feelings and their mutual attraction is immense. Before they know it, the whole “let’s-take-it-slow” thing goes out the window and they're all boyfriend-ed up and loving on each other in a beautifully sweet and possibly forever kind of way. I loved this story; it provided all the warm and fuzzies I could ever need. Dane and Griffin’s growing relationship was all things sweet and easy, with a natural progression that felt spot on perfect to me and with absolutely zero relationship angst along their way to a spectacular HEA. The entire cast of characters were a welcomed treat, but ultimately, it was the dog that shined the brightest. I gave my heart away completely to little Wicket and I don’t care if I ever get it back. He was one of the most vibrant little animals I’ve ever come across on page, full of personality and exhibiting all the cute and ridiculous little doggie traits a dog owner/lover would expect to see. He was just too cute for words. My absolute favourite thing about this story was the sunny, laid-back setting of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Growing up holidaying every year in Caloundra (close to the main book settings of Maroochydore and Coolum) is practically the scene of some of my absolute favourite memories from my childhood (with my family) and early twenties (with my friends). When you know a book setting really well in real life it’s hard not to read with a critical eye, looking for inconsistencies and assessing the legitimacy of the scene being set. Having said that, N.R. Walker absolutely nailed everything here, from the gorgeous tropical and beachy scenery, to the mood and vibe of the people and places mentioned. Reading this story made me incredibly nostalgic and I’m more than impressed by the way Walker captured my favourite place on Earth with such accuracy and love. Finders Keepers has definitely been a great reading experience for me and now solidly stands in amongst (several of) my favourite Walker reads.

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

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.

The only thing that made me finish the book was Dane's dog, Wicket. He stole my heart.

Assuming the owner is nearby he heads home. However, when he returns the following day he realizes the pup is lost. Thankfully he has a collar with a number and he is able to reach the owner. Dane is beside himself when he discovers his furry baby has gone missing. He is overcome with relief when a stranger contacts him stating he’s rescued Wicket. Trouble is, he can’t collect him for a week since he’s out of town on work business. Luckily the sweet guy who found him is willing to keep him for the week. Then Dane discovers he’s hit the jackpot when they begin tentatively flirt-texting. Griffin is everything he wants in a man and Wicket has clearly given his approval. Maybe fate had a hand in this case of lost and found?What's to like: I really enjoyed the cast. Both Dane and Griffin are charming but the rest of the gang was lovely as well. Griffin’s landlady is a hoot! She is blunt and has the embarrassing but endearing quality about her. We are hanging in Australia for this one and ohmygoodness, I need to add Coolum beach to my bucket list. I could feel the sand between my toes and taste the salt in the air. I hope on site writing was a perk for this book. I found the dash of adrenaline just right. Great ‘seize-the-moment’ scene.What's to love: The ending! Gahhhhhh! I can’t even tell you how adorable the epilogue is. Of course, the build up getting there is wonderful. The suspense during the first week apart was fun. They move swiftly but surely. I enjoyed their eagerness and loved it when they focused on dating instead of just shagging. I mean, the shagging was hot but I found the budding relationship the core of this story. If you love meet-cute and love pups too, this story is just for you!Beware of: No drama. No stress. No angst. This story is pure sugar with a touch of sexy thrown in. Speaking of sugar, there’s a couple of stoners that have a sweet spot for special brownies.This book is for: This would be the perfect vacay book! Or beach book. Or long soak in the tub book. Or for those, I need a book hug days! I say, go buy it and save it (if you can resist) for that day you need a smile. I promise you, your face will slip into a grin with this one.Book UNfunk

Whew!The secondary characters added to the story and gave it some added depth.This was just the total package + dogs. Enough said.

    I’m lazy and as Ariana and I are on the same page, here is her review. In summary, it's sweet, there's no conflict, the MCs are adorable as well as the little dog and the others characters. However, it was too smooth for my taste.I liked it but didn’t love it : not my favorite from this author.

    5 sweet, sexy, laughing starsThe only thing I’ll say is read this book. It’s wonderful, light, and so NR Walker. You can’t go wrong. And no angst.. so nice for a change.... a sea change...

    Rated 3.75 stars. Saccharine sweet, but it's NR Walker and it features a cute puppy. And two hot guys. And some hot sex. So can you really go wrong reading this? I didn't think so. Go read it!
