FBI agent Jake Donnelly had a tough childhood, but he had a sanctuary with his Aunt Sophie. She was kind, patient, and loved him, and he grew to love her and his uncle very much. For years, at the end of her life, Aunt Sophie tried to fix him up with Leanne Crosby, pet shrink and owner of a dog spa where she would vacation with her bull dog, Muffin. When Aunt Sophie passes away, she leaves her entier estate to Muffin, to make sure he is well cared for during the rest of his natural life. Jake, of course, is awarded Muffin, and then eventually the estate upon Muffin's death, as long as he accepts the dog. Jake does not, under any circumstance, want the dog, and says so. Until he finds out that if he doesn't take the dog, Leanne Crosby, whom he thinks may be a quack and a rip off, will get Muffin and inherit the estate upon his death. He decides he will take the dog to keep his Aunt Sophie from being swindled after she is gone. He learns of a final provision. He must take Muffin for a mandatory spa vacation, 2 weeks a year.

This story had me laughing from the very fist pages. I very much enjoyed the humor, and the way Muffin was given character and played a role in the plot. The sparks eventually fly when Jake and Leanne meet and they try to resist them, because they both have troubles trusting each other. It is a warm and touching story of how man falls in love with woman, and man falls in love with his dog. There is action and adventure around every corner, and don't forget the romance. When a book can make you laugh and touch your heart too, you know it is a winner.

I highly recommend reading this book. It is sure to please.

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Trish Jensen's novels are entertaining and always laugh with them. Thier are some love scenes that I skipped over. Lots of Plot,humor,suspense and action in it.
FBI Agent Jake Donnelly just found out is beloved Aunt Sophie left her property and millions to her bull dog Muffin. Jake will inheirit after Muffin's long healthy life. But if Muffin gets put to sleep or a accident the place will go to Leanne Crosby pet shrink.
Jake is not happy that he has to take care of Muffin. Muffin is not a happy dog and now he has to spend two weeks at the pet spa that Leanne Crosby owns. Jake thinks she is running a con. So he had his partner check up on her.
Leanne Crosby is a widow who's husband left her a lot of money. Her pet spa used to be a prison with tennis courts,golf course. It has a hotel and cabins 3 restraunts, pool.
I have never thought of the idea of going to a pet spa but now I have different view.
especially about pet shrinks I could use one.
Leanne is beautiful and she does teach Jake a lot how to make Muffin happy and by thier playing together is gives them both exercise and fun. Leanne is ready to fall for Jake when Jake's partner drops off his fiance at the dog resort.
It is really his witness who keeps getting found by the bad guys. They can't tell anyone else who she is till she testifies they need to keep her safe thier must be a traitor in thier office. Because of the situation more humor, drama,action occurs.
Against His Will was first published in 2000.
I like to read novels of Trish and will be reading more of her work in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.

From BackCover:
FBI agent Jake Donnelly is not a happy camper. His favorite aunt is gone and he's gained ... not the childhood retreat he loves, but custody of a bulldog. Worse still, the terms of the will require him and Muffin to spend two weeks at a dog spa owned by a quack canine shrink named LeAnne. But after one look at the luscious LeAnne, Jake knows the dogs aren't going to be the only ones drooling at the Hound Dog Hotel. At a place where doggie astrologists talk about the Puppy Love dating service and breakfast is eaten at the Chow Chow diner, it is easy for desires to be unleashed. Private therapy sessions with the lovely doctor soon have Jake eating out of her hand and deciding maybe Muffin is man's best friend if he can bring his owner and his trainer together for good. ( )
