Book review: Animal magnetism by author Jill Shalvis

I discovered Jill Shalvis sometime last year. I can't remember the first book of hers i read but i have liked everyone that I've read. Not just so so like I've really liked them. When you like a author that much you can sometimes start to be afraid of disappointment. Luckily that has not happened so far!!! I Read Animal Magnetism last week and i really enjoyed it. I wasn't really sure what it was going to be about based on the cover although it's very cute. That kind of threw me a little but not long once i started reading. Here is the back cover blurb.

Animal Magnetism

This alpha male is going to bring out her wild side…

Sunshine, Idaho, is a small and sunny town—the perfect home for man and beast. Well, maybe not for man, as pilot-for-hire Brady Miller discovers when his truck is rear-ended by what appears to be Noah’s Ark.

The co-owner of the town’s only kennel, Lilah Young has good reason to be distracted behind the wheel—there are puppies, a piglet, and a duck in her Jeep. But, she doesn’t find it hard to focus on the angry, gorgeous stranger she’s collided with.

Lilah has lived in Sunshine all her life, and though Brady is just passing through, he has her abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire. It’s Brady’s nature to resist being tied down, but there’s something about Lilah and her menagerie—both animal and human—that keeps him coming back for more…


For starters this is a basic romance book. I love these. the kind you enjoy reading because there always some laugh out loud moments. My boys asked me more than once what's so funny. Gotta love that! If your looking for something like that this is a good book for you. This is the first of what i believe will be 3 books in this series. Brady, Dell and Adam were foster brothers today years ago. Dell and Adam run a veterinary clinic called Belle Haven. They've been trying to lure Brady there for a while and finally snagged him with a helicopter they want him to restore for the  clinics use. Brady did some time in special forces and learned how to fly and fix about anything. He promises he'll stay 30 days to get it running and then he's leaving. One thing stands in his way though. Little Lilah Young and her bruised heart and her myriad of animals at the shelter she runs just up the road from Dell and Adam's clinic.  Instant attraction when they meet that simmers to a boil. I love this contemporary romance. I mean i got to laugh out loud before the end of the first chapter. That's how i knew i was going to love the book. You can check out this book and read a excerpt at Jill Shalvis' website by clicking here. No idea when the next book in this series will come out but i believe i read somewhere it's going to be about Dell. I give Animal Magnetism 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. Loved it!
