Like Cats and Dogs by Kate McMurray


Lauren runs a successful cat cafe in Brooklyn. I’ve never been to a cat cafe but they sound fun with their own set of unique issues. She meets Caleb when he comes in for coffee and they have some chemistry but it quickly goes south. She brings in her cat to the veterinary clinic next door and realizes he’s the new vet. He’s quite surly with her which is why they get off on the wrong foot. We all like to self diagnose, even our animals, no need for the professionals to get offended lol. Google is an embarrassment of riches and death sentences. 

But then they were forced into close proximity and things got physical. Have you ever had a relationship with someone where things were hotter when you bickered? Like the opposites attracted and the intense arguing caused you to back them into a broom closet? ( Hmm note to self: ideas for husband)

This was definitely a cute read as Caleb was getting over a divorce and was scared to get into a new relationship but Lauren wanted more after a while.  Putting your heart back out there can be hard when it got broken and you didn’t see it coming.

Thank you net galley and sourcebookscasa for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.


Can you fight like cats and dogs, and still be perfect for each other?

Things are getting ruff in this Brooklyn neighborhood when new veterinarian Caleb Fitch moves in next door to the Whitman Street Cat Cafe and gets on the wrong side of cafe owner Lauren Harlow. Lauren has a few things to teach the new vet on the block, and rescuing kittens is only the start…

Lauren can’t ignore the fact that she is instantly attracted to Caleb, but he gets her even more riled up when he argues with her about how best to treat the cats in her care. Determined to smooth things over, Caleb comes to the rescue when a new litter of abandoned kittens is left on Lauren’s doorstep, and they confront the fiery attraction that’s been building between them from the start. But saving the baby kittens is only the first challenge Lauren and Caleb have to face, and when a real estate developer comes sniffing around their block, they’ll have to work together, or risk losing everything…
