Ellen may not believe in storybook love, but it’s about to rewrite her life . . . Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she signs up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. They ask men the hard questions, compare their answers with hers, then she filters through the profiles of each provided “match.” After numerous email exchanges, she narrows it down to two promising candidates she’s excited to meet in person. When Ellen’s best friend asks her for a favor, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t get out of her mind. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but she finds herself paying for dog obedience class to spend more time with him. Ellen knows that in order to have a lasting relationship, she should take the safe route and go for one of the pre-screened guys. But, how can she think with her head when her heart keeps begging her to give Henry a chance?
This one was hilarious, it's the start of a fun little series by the auhtor and i', enjoyeing myself immesnly.  Ellen creates a profile online looking for the perfect guy, but she also gets roped into taking care of her friend's dog.  As with all stupid pets the dog eats his way throguh her pocketbook and she rushes him to the local vet, There she meets Henry a ho hunk of a man, but he doesn't have any of the qualities she requires from a guy. Or so she thinks

I loved reading this story and getting in the characters' heads and seeing how they thought. It made for some seriously funny moments.  Poor Ellen doesn't believe love and ever after because her mom never met a man she could keep.  Because of that Ellen went about love differently and yet when faced with having to change she fought it a little more than necessary.

I really loved the ending of this novel and don't want to spoil it but man oh man was Henry amazing!!! I loved that even though this was a romance novel, the author managed to make the characters liekable and relateable, she made Ellen a character you wanted to route for.  I loved reading her friendships, and can't wait to learn more about the other women in the series.

i Highly recommend this book and the series to follow ( as I have read two others already)
Happy Reading
