OK, first of all, this is a lovely story, I adored the characters (both human and animal) and the plot is... intriguing to me.

"Keeping Karma" introduces the reader to Alex, a veterinary student with a special gift... he can hear the animals he works with; Dylan, an animal control officer who takes an instant liking to Alex, when he brings in an injured fawn; and Karma, a ferret living with Alex and his other pets even though she's an illegal pet in California.

Alex and Dylan hit it off and are soon living together, quite happily, but Karma's constant hijinks and Alex's secret just might throw a wrench in the whole thing... read it and find out what happens! ;-P

I picked up this title because I've always liked the idea of actually being able to talk to animals. Though I was wary that Tory Temple might be writing a gay Dr. Dolittle, the author did no such thing! Instead, writing an enjoyable tale perfect for an afternoon read. ( )

Book description
Alexander Myers and his twin sister Tabitha were born with the incredible ability to "hear" the thoughts of animals. Alex has managed to keep this a secret and has actually used it to his advantage for his job, working in an emergency animal care clinic and volunteering at the animal shelter while he studies to become a veterinarian. One night while Alex is working the front desk, Dylan Travers, a local animal control officer, comes in with an injured fawn. When Alex and Dylan become involved, it gets harder and harder for Alex to keep his secret. On top of that, Alex has a little menagerie of his own in his apartment, including a ferret called Karma, who he's not supposed to have as a pet. As the two men become closer, Alex worries about how Dylan will react if Alex tells him about his pets and then his special ability. Add to that debilitating migraines from especially 'loud' animals, and a dangerous co-worker who Alex butts heads with, and life is suddenly far more exciting than Alex would like. Will he be able to keep his job, his pets, his lover and his sanity?
