Werewolves are real. Marius enjoys the irony that everyone calls him a dog whisperer, not just because he’s a werewolf, but for his work at the local animal shelter. He has a unique talent for pairing families with their perfect pets upon first meeting them. But he’s still looking for acceptance and a forever family of his own. Then Jack comes into the rescue looking for a big, mean dog. To prevent Jack from making the wrong choice, Marius convinces him to adopt a needy spaniel mix instead. But when Marius learns Jack is tormented by horrible memories while at his apartment, he opens his home to the sweet, scared man. As their relationship grows, Jack feels comfortable telling Marius about the horrors he suffered. Marius hopes his steady presence, protection, and love can help Jack reclaim the pieces of himself broken on that terrible night.
This book deals with the aftermath and healing that begins after an attack. I loved writing this book and enjoyed being able to get the emotions and feelings that I know to be true onto the page. Rescuing Jack is sometimes dark and often emotional and if you enjoyed the feel of Marked by Grief I think you'll like this one too. Like Marked by Grief, this book is extremely personal to me in that it deals with the darkest parts of my own life that I've had to deal with. Sharing these experiences with you lets me tell that tale in a way that doesn't have to hurt. At its center Rescuing Jack is a slow burn love story of one man bringing the other out of the darkness of his own life. I hope you enjoy it and that it touches you in some way.
