8 Hounds a-Howling: Klein's K-9s book 2 (Klein's K-9s service dogs) by Marcia James 

Overall star rating --- 5

About the book:
The holidays are the perfect time for ex-lovers to get a second chance at love! This sensual contemporary romance novella is the second in the dog-lovers' "Klein's K-9s" series, featuring a service dog training facility, its skilled staff, and its compassionate volunteers.

Celebrity photographer "Jax" Jackson volunteers to shoot the Klein's K-9s annual fundraising calendar. His agenda: Convince past love and calendar coordinator Amy Walters to give him a another try.

Producing the dog-themed "12 Days of Christmas" calendar includes dodging dive-bombing birds, tackling runaway pigs, and handling 78 dogs who'd rather play than pose. In the midst of the chaos, will the reunited lovers find their happily ever after?

The review --
When you begin reading this book, you're immediately left wondering what the heck Jax did, because Amy seems to hate him, and the fun doesn't stop. The chapter titles are simply delightful and add to the reading fun. What can I say …. this is simply a wonderful book.

The whole story of them shooting the calendar, and him trying to get back in her good graces, and wrangling the dogs, and trying to get their shots. It's all just wonderful. I truly loved this book, and it was such a fun read.
