Scottie Kinland works as the Kennel Manager for the Paws For Care veterinary clinic. Spending his days with animals is the only way he can feel safe. He has first-hand knowledge of how cold and calculating humans can be. How could he ever forget? He wears the scars on his face and his heart.
Lance Franklin likes to play the field. Still reeling from a lying cheating fiancée, he’s plowing through men like aspirin; only the pain of betrayal still stings. When he takes his mom’s dog in to the Paws For Care clinic, he’s immediately drawn to the quiet loner Scottie. But Scottie wants nothing to do with Lance.
Lance persists and he manages to forge a fragile relationship with Scottie. But just as both men begin to believe perhaps fate has something beautiful in store for them; the past collides with their future in a shocking way.
Memories Follow by S.C. Wynne is an interesting story of Scottie who has a violent past that makes him nervous and Lance whose broken heart leads to a playboy attitude. When they meet at Scottie’s work first impressions don’t really help matters
My biggest issue with this story was the first sex scene. Scottie spent so much time being nervous and not wanting to be alone in Lance’s house and then all of a sudden Scottie has his hands down Lance’s pants and they are screwing. It just had no flow for me and the scene didn’t do anything for me either. It felt to me like it needed to jump the story forward.
I felt like Lance pushed for the relationship for the whole book and Scottie followed along nervously until he wanted sex. The twist was also, I don’t know, unnecessary drama. It just didn’t feel right that the layer who meant that he never felt safe again in his home town came from New York and yet that’s the city he moved to.
Lance was certainly my favourite character. Along with his mum and the Vets staff they made the story for me. I also loved the dogs. I always love the animals in books, they usually make me warm and fussy.
At the end of the day, this was an ok book. It was easy to read and it wasn’t emotionally hard. Though people should be warned that there is past violence. This might be the right book for you, it just wasn’t for me.
