Finders Keepers (2018) N.R. Walker

Finders KeepersGriffin Burke has moved to Coolum Beach for a new job–and a promotion. He’s good at being a hotel manager, even even better, he enjoys it.

“Do people really expect room service to be included?”

I scoffed. “You work in customer service, right?”

“Point taken.”

When he finds a lost dog, and calls the owner, he doesn’t expect much–except that the owner is away on business and Griff offers to keep Wicket for a few days until Dane Hughes is back from his work conference.

Dane was worried when his mother called to say that Wicket had escaped, and although he’s relieved when a guy calls saying he’s found Wicket, he feels bad that Griff is keeping Wicket rather than putting him in a kennel.

And then Griff starts sending pictures of Wicket having fun and Dane starts to fall for this cute guy who is clearly caring for his dog.

The two of them are ridiculously adorable.

“Do you want to know if I’m seeing someone?”

“Maybe.”

It sounded like he was smiling. “I’m not. Seeing anyone, that is.”

Okay, so that was one hurdle down. “And if you were looking—” I cringed at how ridiculous this was. “— and used dating apps, would you use Tinder? Or maybe Grindr?” I buried my face into the sofa cushion and rolled my eyes and wanted to die.

He barked out a laugh. “Are you asking me if I’m gay?”

ALSO, there is Bernice, Griff’s landlord. Who is hilarious and also adorable.

“You can ride a skateboard?” I asked. “I mean, I saw the surfboard in your living room and I assumed it was yours, but a skateboard?”

Bernice lifted her chin. “I’ll have you know, I skated with the best of them in the late seventies and eighties. Those arseholes at Venice Beach told me girls couldn’t do a frontside 180. So I did a 360 hardflip and shut that fucker up.”

Plus the cute dog, who is central to the story. And who also gets worried when the two humans he like might possibly be hurting each other. (They are kissing.)

It’s sweet and adorable and there are two romances for the one, so YAY!
