Must love dogs... And sexy vets

Another fun easy going romance by Jill Shalvis. A great beach listen. I really liked Dell and Jade's story. Playful banter and hot romance with a perfect happily ever after. As for the narration Karen White did significantly better with this book than with the first of the series. Very distinct characters and the added emotions of a good narration. All in all it was time and money well spent so I recommend it.

This one surprised me!!!

If your looking for a good love story this is the one for you. This is a straight forward love story, no vamps, wolves, or changlings. Just a good honest love story with alot of fun and a strong cast of supporting characters. Its hard to find a good book while waiting for my favorite authors to put out something new, but this is a good book. If you don't like love stories, then this is not the book for you.

Crush on the Doc.

This book is similar to the first book, only not quite as quirky, more serious. I enjoyed the first book more, but this book was pretty good just not great. If the next couple of books in the series comes out on Audible, I would listen to them. Karen White was good, I thought she sounded like Meredith Grey off of Grey's Anatomy.

MAGNETISM OF ANY KIND

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. Continues the lives introduced in the first book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have added a little more drama, romance, sex. This installment in the series is a little flat. I like a story that produces a bit of anxiety and suspense/drama.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like Karen White with the exception of the "hitches" in her sentences/words. Could have flowed better and male voices could have been more distinct. Not a deal breaker for me, however.

Do you think Animal Magnetism Series # 2, Animal Attraction needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. We were introduced to other characters, Adam being one. Let's hear more about him.

Even better than the first book in the series.

I like almost all of the Jill Shalvis books I've listened to. Love the "Lucky Harbor" series and this is right up there with that series.

slow story, lethargic narrator

Another narrator may have kept the story going for me -this one had a 'sad and sorry' tone most of the time -no man other than a shrink would be interested in a young woman who carried that dispostion around most of the time - so I don't think it was appropriate for the story!

Very enjoyable

Great story. Really great plot. You’re gonna fall in love with the characters. All of them. I just wish the ending would have extended back to them in Sunshine.

3.5 stars: Everything is just ok

Would you try another book from Jill Shalvis and/or Karen White?

I am listening to all the books in the series because they are fine, but I don't love them. They are very formulaic which is ok, but don't expect anything special.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would not have made the main character half Native American. The only purpose his ancestry seems to serve is to make him hot/exotic. It does nothing to really further the story line and it's not like the author shows any understanding of the culture in the writing.

Was Animal Magnetism Series # 2, Animal Attraction worth the listening time?

I would not carve time out of my day, but I don't mind putting it on when I am traveling or doing other things. Because the story is not especially compelling, I find myself loosing track of the plot and finding that I am not really missing out on much.

One of my favorite series

Animal Attraction is the second book in Jill Shalvis' Animal Magnetism series and in it, we get to get up close and personal with the oh so hot veterinarian Dell Connelly. We got to meet Dell and his handsome broody brother Adam in book one, Animal Magnetism, and I couldn't wait to read his and Jade's story. Dell is quite the player and is somewhat of a man-whore. The only woman who isn't falling at his feet, however, is his receptionist, Jade Bennett. There is definitely chemistry between the two, much they try to ignore it. Jade has a past that has left her vulnerable and caused her to leave her old life behind, ending up in beautiful Sunshine Idaho. Her past has also kept her from letting anyone get too close to her as well. Dell sees a lot more than she is aware of, and is determined to help her heal. Dell also has issues from his past that have caused him to have commitment phobia, but Jade can also see past his disguises as well. Try as they may, they can't avoid the inevitable and things get hot and heavy between them, and not only physically. Their feelings run deep, but when push comes to shove, will Dell have the guts to hold onto this woman who has captured his heart, and if he does, will Jade have the guts to let him have it?

I loved Dell''s character. He's such a great guy, despite his man-whorish past. I also love the relationship he has with his brothers. Of course there is the fact that he is a total hottie who will cause you to melt in a puddle with his smile. You also get to see plenty of Brady and Lila, who were in the first novel, and then there is Adam, and I think he is going to wind up being my favorite by the time I read his story, which is next in the series. While this is a series, each book can easily be read as a standalone, though after reading one, you'll want to devour the rest of the series. Animal Attraction is an awesome contemporary romance that will capture your attention and your heart and I can't recommend it highly enough.
