Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch.

One brown eye. One blue.
Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation.

She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems and besides… no one had ever stopped to help her.

Who we’re ultimately meant to be is a journey without end, but there’s always a defined start…

Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming. She named him Atticus. He grew up to be a very bad—and completely awesome—dog.

A heart-warming and deliciously funny story about the world’s worst behaved dog and how he taught his human how to love again. Atticus will take the reader on a wild romp of mischievous misadventures in search of a much needed happily ever after.

Atticus is not really a contemporary romance. The genre is fiction, with a side a new adult and a bit of romance.  There are a few times where we move forward in time which seemed to work well. I often don’t like time jumps.

This story shows a life, personal growth, redemption and love.  The tale is of a girl and her dog. Hazel finds giving her heart selflessly, with no expectation of anything in return, brings the best rewards. Atticus also teaches her to love herself.

Hazel starts at the bottom with no money, no education, no real family or friends and then no job. But she has to provide for Atticus, so she pulls herself together. It is the best kind of story with realistic people who have hopes and dreams, faults and failures, who make mistakes and have good hearts and great ideas.

I love the characters. I love Hazel and Oley (70 something veterinarian) and Bernard (homeless war veteran). I laughed. I cried. I felt and cared deeply. Highly recommended.

About Sawyer Bennett

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe

  1. I have enjoyed everything I’ve read by Sawyer Bennett so far and a dog book?! Hell yes! This is going on my must read list!

    • It is a very special book, not like the rest of the crowd. It is more about life than just a romance. Not that there is anything wrong with romance.
