There's been little love in H.D. "Hound Dog" Fisher's life since the death of his beloved mom when he was a boy. Bounced around the foster care system, he ran away as soon as he could... and took the foster dog with him. As far as he's concerned, only dogs have no ulterior motive, never hold a grudge, and offer unconditional love. Now he helps run a no-kill shelter and leaves relationships where they belong: in the back room.
"Bean" Alexander settled in Kansas City to open his coffee shop after years of traveling. He never expected to open his heart too. When a man with a grudge takes a swing at H.D. while in line at Bean's shop, Bean jumps to intervene.
So taking a hit for H.D. gets Bean noticed, and H.D. feels obligated to pay a debt. But then the unexpected happens. A series of misadventures causes H.D. to open up - but falling in love makes him turn tail and run. Trust is a tough road to travel. Will good friends, a dog named Sarah Jane, and a bit of folk magic be enough to bring Hound Dog and Bean a happy ending?

So enjoyed listening to Hound Dog & Bean. It was written with insight, sensitivity and humor. I found it a touching and delightful listen. I'm looking forward to reading more books written by Mr. Thomas.
The storyline was good. The sex parts were great. But it did seem to be a little flat. The narrator was excellent.
I've tried twice to get through this audiobook but it's not happening. It wanders horribly, even secondary supporting characters drift off on internal dialogue tangents. Maybe the story picks up later on but I'll never get there because I'm bored to tears. I rate it three stars overall because it's not a horrible story, just boring. The characters seem to have the potential to be interesting but almost 3.5 hours into an 8 hour book I need to feel more than vague disinterest toward them. Hound Dog & Bean might be more enjoyable for other listeners it's just not the book for me.
