Release Day Review! LOVE OUT LOUD by Marissa Clarke (Animal Attraction #3)

Love Out Loud cover

A deliciously fun, flirty rom-com where love doesn’t happen by opening a door…it happens when you get stuck in one.

Veterinarian Fiona Nichols does not do well in stressful social situations. A little babble here, saying the absolutely wrong thing there. But that doesn’t stop Fiona from checking out the delectably hot guy in her building…from afar. Fate apparently has a nasty sense of humor, though.

Somehow Fiona gets herself and Hot Guy stuck in the building’s revolving door—all thanks to a certain squeaky dog toy…that unfortunately looks decidedly, uh, penile.

Must be time to meet the neighbors.

Turns out that Jake Ward is Fiona’s new public-speaking coach. A hot extrovert who always knows what to say. Fiona should hate the man on sight. Instead, she’s only finding him more attractive. And now she’s finally getting out of her comfort zone…only to get in over her head.

Such a sweet story!

I feel like we waited forever for this book–#1 and #2 came out in 2017 and 2018 (I honestly barely remember the details of them, but it didn’t matter for this one because it would have worked as a standalone anyway)–but it was worth the wait!

Love Out Loud is an opposites attract story–whatever you do, don’t refer to it as Pygmalian-esque!–and I loved that even though both Fiona and Jake had their own issues to resolve here (and each got *some* help from the other in resolving them) no one had to be “fixed” to be loveable.

Though “fixing” animals might have been a part of the plot. #sorrynotsorry 😉

Now that all of the Animal Attraction women have found their much deserved HEAs, if Ms Clarke wanted to work on some for Marcus, Elaine, or even Charise…*I* won’t complain!

Rating: 4 stars / A-
