Novel: Finders Keepers
Author: N.R. Walker
Released: January 31, 2018
Part of Book Series: standalone
Needing a change of scene, Griffin Burke moves from Brisbane to Coolum Beach to start a new job. The beautiful white sand, aqua-coloured ocean, blue skies, and summer breezes are everything he longs for. What he finds is a mud-covered dog, lost and hungry, with a nametag and a phone number.
Dane Hughes is stuck in Surfers Paradise at a week-long work conference when he gets a phone call from his distraught mother. His dog, his fur baby, Wicket, has run away. Unable to leave and feeling helpless and miserable, he gets a text from a guy. “I think I found your dog…”
Griffin and Dane start talking, and Griffin agrees to look after Wicket until Dane can collect him. 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.
Post Author’s Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
Fluff, fluff, fluff. N.R. Walker is an author who doesn’t dabble much in angst when it comes to her books – but Finders Keepers is a whole new level of pure fluff. Not that it’s a bad thing, not at all. Sometimes relationships just don’t have any drama and just unfold quietly – which is the case with Dane and Griffin. Griffin finds Dane’s lost dog, they both meet, and they fall in love. As simple as that.
Sometimes you just need a book to read that makes you feel warm and fuzzy as you finish it. This is that book. The romance is free of any drama, but it still feels very organic. They’re not billionaires falling in love with their fake boyfriends. Dane and Griffin are simple men, with ordinary jobs that may not seem stellar, but they enjoy what they do. And that, ultimately, makes this novel feel so real, and makes you connect so well with the romance. It makes you feel like you, too, can have a romance like theirs.
