What is Charlie Rockwell supposed to do when the sad Rottweiler's eyes connect with hers through the TV screen and work their way straight into her heart? She adopts him without a second thought or the slightest knowledge how to take care of the large, needy dog with the traumatic past.

Ethan Porter is not happy when a savage Rottweiler picks a fight with his mild-mannered Golden Retriever at the dog park. But his anger quickly dissipates when tears begin to form behind the eyes of the dog's beautiful owner—eyes that are far too
familiar for his liking. Disregarding his instincts, Ethan can't deny her plea when she asks him to teach her the basics of dog ownership.

Can he ignore the fact that she bears a strong resemblance to his ex and finally learn to trust again? Will she find committing to both man and dog more exciting than the freedom of a single, unrestrained life?

A man with a painful past, a woman who fears commitment, and a dog with only one more chance at life—together, can they find love?

Walk Away With Me is Darby Davenport’s first romance novella. Darby is also known as Emlyn Chand, author of young adult and children’s books.

Walk Away With Me was a cute story. Told alternately from Charlie’s and Ethan’s perspectives, it was interesting to get inside each of their heads and see their thought process. I liked that despite being a short story, there was quite a bit of character development for both of them. They learned a lot about themselves while learning about each other, and discovered that love can come in the most unexpected forms, and when you least expect it. 

I liked that animals were a big part of the story and that the author brings to light the need to rescue animals that are in need of a home and give them love and a stable environment.

Overall a light and fun romance, Walk Away With Me is sure to please romance fans looking for a quick read.
