Roxanne Bloom is surrounded by her friends who have all reached their “happily ever afters” and she is having a hard time putting on a happy face every time she hears some wonderful news about a new baby or dream job. She certainly doesn’t want to be a part of Mrs. Needleman’s meddling matchmaking attempts. Roxie was hurt in the past by love, and after being canned from her newspaper job at the San Francisco Journal she decides to start her own website, www.i-vomit-on-all-men.com, and adopts Lilith, a high strung, severely aggressive mish-mosh of Boxer, Staffordshire terrier (the less incendiary name for a pit bull) and some kind of hound, possibly beagle.
Eli Gallagher is everything a woman could want. Except Roxie, since she has sworn of all men. But Eli is the best dog trainer on the West Coast. Will he be able to give Roxie and Lilith the strength and courage to trust not just in each other, but possibly make them a family? Will Roxie finally get her happily ever after?
