Publisher's Summary

If you love sweet romances (PG-rating), look no further than Rachelle Ayala's, Have a Hart series. The Harts are a family of San Francisco firefighters. Their family motto is: Heart comes first.

    "Sweet, feel-good contemporary romance"

    Book Two in Rachel Ayala's The Hart Family: Have a Hart certainly lives up to the first book in the series. It is just as sweet and has the same feel-good factor.

    Jenna and Larry's story is a clear case of opposites attracting. Larry is a down-to-earth, true blue hero with the scars to prove it. His experiences have left him vulnerable and lonely. Jenna is an aspiring designer flitting about in the shallow fashion world. They contrast physically as well as in lifestyle choices making it seem impossible that they should work. Indeed these differences present large challenges for them to work through before they reach their HEA.

    Luckily there are a few more Hart siblings who need to find their partners. I am looking forward to hearing their stories.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Absolutely Captivating "

    This second book of the series was just as sweet as the first. It was funny, romantic and absolutely captivating. I really enjoyed Larry and Jenna’s story and was so happy to see Larry get his HEA. Of course I couldn’t help but fall in love with Harley! The only downside to the audiobook was that all of Jennifer Groberg’s voices sounded feminine. This book was given to me for free and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Fun, enjoyable book"

    Valentine Hound Dog is the second book in the Have A Hart series. Jenna is used to the business of the fashion world. She returns to town to do her annual fashion show with the proceeds going to charity. When she loses her town model, she asks a family friend and former firefighter, Larry, to help out. Jenna has been known to be self-absorbed and not having to think about things around her because her beauty has gotten her what she has needed. So when she starts to have feelings for Larry, she is questioned about her motives. Nobody believes her feelings are real. Will she be able to prove that she is genuine? And what will she do since this isn’t home anymore? Will Larry take a chance on her? If one little hound dog puppy has his way, they both with get what they want. I loved this story! The narrator is great to listen to. Definitely pick up this book!

    "A Hart felt story!"

    Cover Love: It's a cute cover that says a lot about the story.
    I loved this story. It is my first in the Have a Hart series( I did buy the first after reading this) (Christmas Lovebirds) and am eagerly waiting for Connor's story soon.
    Valentine Hounddog is a sweet short story about a beautiful fashion designer and an ex-fireman that was burned severely in a fire. This is a fresh take on the beauty and the beast story, though I hated whenever the presses or anyone referred to Larry as a beast. I never saw Larry as anything but a hero and a very sexy, sweet, kind man at that.
    Take a hot man that risk's his life to save children, falls in love with a cute, funny basset hound and a fashion designer he thinks is out of his league, you have a well-written story you won't want to put down.

    Jennifer Groberg does a great job narrating giving very distinct voice, making cute sounds for Harley and you can hear various emotions in her voice not just reading a book. I loved reading the story but liked listening even more.

    "finding love for Valentine's day"

    A good love story of an all about business no matter what it takes fashion designer, Jenna and burned and scarred fire fighter Larry and a doggie named Harley who brings them together. Jenna rethinks her career after falling in love with Larry as long as he can believe he is not one of her casual flings. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily giving a review.

    Story
    "What a sweet romance (with a puppy to boot)!"

    This was a clean, sweet romance that involves a burned fireman (Larry) who doesn't think a whole lot of his life or his chances at romance anymore and a beautiful woman who sees his scars as more than a disfigurement. They have a puppy (Harley) that keeps throwing them together and stealing the show. Jenna bought Harley to give to her brother as a firehouse dog, but Larry is watching him until she hands him over. It nearly broke my heart when little Harley wasn't received with open arms by the firehouse. Will Harley get his happily ever after and manage to bring Jenna and Larry together for theirs also?

    Sweet romance with a Cupid hound dog.

    This is the second in the Hart family series and every bit as good as the first. I like the characters and the sweet pup in this well written story. I voluntarily reviewed this audio book after receiving an advanced copy.

    "Hart's Know How to Love"

    I had not previously read this story, and I think it made this audiobook that much better for me. I'm already in love with the Hart family, but never expected Jenna to fall for Big D. This was an emotional listen for me, both with happy and sad tears. Jennifer Groberg was able to bring a great depth to the story that I know I wouldn't have been able to get when reading the book. She's truly a talented narrator.

    "WOW!!!"

    there's something so wonderful about being able to listen to a book instead of read it. For me it helps give more depth to the characters and the plot. This book I had read before but it was amazing to listen to it. It's one of those wonderful feel good romance novels. Rachelle Ayala delivers another wonderful novel.

    "Heart comes first..."

    The Hart family is back and now we have Jenna's story. This is a wonderful story that shows how 2 seemingly opposite types of people can certainly attract. Jenna is involved with high fashion and Larry is a former fire-fighter and now a school janitor.

    I loved listening to their story and seeing them overcome all the obstacles in their way. This is a well written story by Rachelle Ayala, and perfectly narrated by Jennifer Groberg.

    Story
    "Loved everything about it..."

    Funny, sweet, and sad, this book took me on an emotional journey. This is a modern take on Beauty and the Beast.

    The characters are great, they're easy to become attached to and I couldn't help feeling bad for them at times, Rachelle sure puts them through a lot. There's a lot of character development going into this series and it shows, the characters come alive off the page/recording and I couldn't help but want everything to work out.

    There are minor spoilers for book one in this book but not enough to have to read them in order.

    The narration worked really well, I thought it complimented the story really well. Excellent character voices and a natural flowing delivery.

    This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
