    3. Another wonderful story that tugged at my heartstrings, New Leash on Life by Roxanne St.Claire. Again a perfect title for this wonderful and emotional story, but it doesn’t quite describe what you might expect. This is the second book in her Dogfather series but each book is a stand long read.

    4. New Leash on Life is the second book in Roxanne St. Claire's wonderful new Dogfather series. I loved that Shane Kilcannon was the second sibling to get his story. Shane Kilcannon and Chloe Somerset are pretty much as different as night and day. He works as a dog trainer, and doesn't care about getting dirty on the job. Chloe is a marketing expert who seriously hates to have a hair out of place. However, those differences made me absolutely love them as a couple long before they actually became o [...]

    12. See full review at HarlequinJunkieRoxanne St. Claire never fails to make me swoon over her heroes and want to befriend her heroines.

    13. This book is definitely a winner. It is the 2nd in the Dogfather series and is Shane and Chloe's story. I love the entire Kilcannon family and their dynamics; it is so nice to find a family that can work together and be so supportive. Shane is still dealing with the death of his mother and being thrown together with Chloe is just what he needs.He pushes her beyond her germaphobic boundaries in such a good way.

    14. Ms. St. Claire has a triple threat on her hands. Sexy hero, feisty heroine and adorable scene stealing cuddlers make for a tasty and endearing treasure.

Easy on the eyes, fatal to the heart. His sensitive side shines through with every rescue dog he saves. Chloe craves love but repeatedly experiences heartache. When work l [...]

    15. It was fun to read this book. I loved seeing Chloe go from a germaphobe who was a bit stuck up to being someone who fell in love for dogs and realized that dirt has it's place in a person's life. As much as I liked seeing Chloe fall for Shane, her falling for Daisy was even better. The story line with the town and what to do to get tourist was slightly interesting. I liked Chloe's idea, thought it was a unique idea that had the potential to bring lots of people to town. I was glad to see how thi [...]

    16. 4.5 starsThis is such a fantastic and sweet book! I loved everything about it. The main couple, Chloe and Shane are the sweetest thing together; it touched me how he dealt with Chloe's obsession with cleanliness, almost a germphobia. Also, it was endearing how Chloe started loosening up and I admired her ideas to develop tourism in the small town of Bitter Bark.As happened with book 1, the star in this book is from the four-legged variety, Daisy, a lovely and sweet dog that melted my heart. Oh, [...]

When his father starts trying to get his brother on the tourism council, Shane takes the opportunity to see Chloe again. Not everyone in town is happy with Chloe’s idea, but Shane thinks a good way to change pe [...]

    18. I found this book so much better than the 1st. The dialogue, story flow, character and relationship development/growth was very well done. I was especially appreciative at how the author incorporated "pit bull education" into the theme - using it not only as a chance to educate her audience about the misinformation about the breed, but also tying it with the theme of the story. Brilliant.I enjoyed the little mystery thrown in and the only other thing I have to say is if there were an actual plac [...]

    19. Wow! I am loving this series and book 2 is just as good as book 1. Being a dog lover, I really enjoy the dog characters. I love the Kilcannon family relationship, the heartache and barriers that Chloe and Shane worked through to get to their happily ever after. Great story!!

    20. I am thoroughly enjoying this series. I like Shane and Chloe as individuals and as a couple, but I must admit Daisy was my favorite character. I eagerly await Liam and Andi and Jag's story.

    21. I am really liking this series. The Kilcannon family is so likeable and the dogs are great. Shane is having a hard time dealing with his mom's death. When he runs into Cloe, he is immediately intrigued. Cloe feels an instant attraction to Shane, but she doesn't stay in one place long enough for a relationship. As they get to know each other, they both are changing their minds on a few things. Will it be enough for her to stay in Bitter Bark?

    22. Reviewed at Romance Is AgelessI absolutely love The Dogfather series – and this is only the second book, we’ve a lot to go yet. New Leash on Life is a delightful romance, but don’t be fooled by the “romance” part of this sentence. Shane and Chloe’s romance has so much depth and delving into some truly serious issues that this story goes way beyond a fun, lighthearted romance. I believe that once you finish their story you’ll have a change of heart toward some preconceived ideas abo [...]

    23. I was so excited to dig into the second book in The Dogfather series, New Leash On Life taking us back into the lives of the always entertaining Kilcannon Clan and featuring the quaint little town of Bitter Bark, North Carolina, with some interesting characters of their own.I wasn't sure who was more of the heroine - Chloe Somerset or Daisy, the beloved Staffie.

    24. I enjoyed reading this second book in Roxanne St. Claire's new The Dogfather series. Her voice rings through, and it was easy to get into the stories.

I fell in love with the Kilcannon family, and all they get up to.It is in the first book, we first meet Shane, and I was very intrigued. Ever the playboy, who seems to not want a connection with any woman in a serious relati [...]

    25. Roxanne St. Clair delivers another amazing book in the Dogfather Series. I loved every minute of the book. The strong characters are so memorable they feel like family. WOW!

    26. 3.5 The Dogfather series is about a family and their business of dog training facility and rescue. I felt in love with it at book 1 and I still want to read more, but I admit that book 2 didn't have the same entertaining qualities than the predecessor. Not because the characters weren't as lovable, but a lacking in the plot department. I don't want drama at all cost, and I usually prefer when there's not too much but I think different stakes would have enhanced my interest. Chloe's disdain for f [...]
