High school physics teacher Lucy Savage is finally getting rid of Bradley - and his hideous green recliner. In fact, her front lawn is littered wiht her cheating ex-husband's belongings. Because despite standing her up in divorce cort, Bradly is out of her life for good. Or so she thinks.
When her sister takes her to lunch to celebrate Lucy's single status, all their talk of a no-good louse named Bradley catches the attention of a cop - who wantes to arrest the very same Bradley for embezzlement. And Officer Zack Warren figures the lovely Lucy can lead him straight to his target.
When someone shoots at Lucy and then blows up her car, Zack insists she needs twenty-four hour protection. What does he think her three dogs and attack cat are for? Still, he insists on moving right in to Lucy's house....
Now there's danger lurking outside and in her own kitchen, bathroom - and bedroom. Or maybe Zack, who looks like a bad boy with that shaggy dark hair and black leather jacket, is really one of the good guys, and just what Lucy needs.
“Have I ever mentioned how much I hate it that you were a psych minor? A minor, for cripes’ sake. With a minor, you’re not even allowed to psychoanalyze dogs.”Zack Warren
“That’s all I need is some dopey dog with big sad eyes telepathically telling me he never sees me and where have I been?”Zack Warren
“There were never any women who liked to cook for men every day. There were only women who cooked for survival and pretended to like it. And now there are men who cook for survival. Like you. Think of this as survivalist training. Very macho.”Lucy Savage
“You are going to get rid of his name, aren't you? Lucy Savage Porter always sounded like you'd married a rabid bellboy.”Tina Savage
“No wonder you're so screwed up. Life is not logical, and marriage certainly isn't. Stop analyzing things so much. Try impulse for a change.”Tina Savage
“You don't accumulate dogs. You meet them, and you both know that you belong together. And even if you know that's dumb, and you don't need a dog, and you can't handle the responsibility, and you don't even want a dog anyway, there it is and you have to go with it. It was meant to be.”Lucy Savage
“Listen, the best relationships of my life have been with dogs. And they aren't dumb at all. Einstein never brought a blonde in to my house, and Maxwell never stood me up in a restaurant, and Heisenberg never grabbed me in an alley.”Lucy Savage
