Summary

Love runs wild at the Sagebrush Flats Zoo,
where a motley crew of big-hearted animals
helps the most unlikely couples find love.

When Katie Underwood discovers a litter of newborn cougar cubs, the last person she expects to come to the rescue is her former crush--and high school nemesis--Bowie Wilson. The worst part? He doesn't seem to remember the trouble he caused her.

As a single father and owner of a cash-strapped zoo, Bowie struggles to balance budgets while raising his pre-teen daughter and a host of rascally animals. He considers himself lucky when Katie agrees to lend her talents to a publicity campaign in support of the zoo's animal rehabilitation programs--until he learns just what she's planning...

This time, Katie is determined to resist Bowie's charm. But a lovelorn camel, a matchmaking honey badger, and a nursemaid capybara have different plans. Can they and the rest of the zoo's menagerie help Bowie break through the barriers surrounding Katie's heart?

Love can't be tamed...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kerr's small-town romance with a fresh setting of a family-owned zoo brings a regretful former high-school bully together with the target of his pranks. Katie has returned to town to help her parents after her policeman father is shot. Bowie is a single father trying to keep people coming in the door of his declining small zoo. He hires Katie without realizing that she hates him for the suffering he caused her, and she turns her ire into a brilliant social media PR campaign by having Bowie kiss a pig and recreate other stunts he forced on her. Time with baby cougars, Bowie's wonderful 11-year-old daughter experiencing bullying, and disclosures about why Bowie became a bully help Katie realize that he may be the man for her, even if she doesn't want him to be. The zoo setting, including the short scenes from the point of view of Fluffy, a matchmaking honey badger, make for very enjoyable reading. Fans of pet romance novels will thoroughly enjoy Kerr's love-at-the-zoo tale.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kerr's outstanding debut contemporary adds an element heretofore missing from romance novels: narration by a wiley, interfering honey badger. All Fluffy wants is for the Black-Haired One (aka zoo owner and single dad Bowie Wilson) to partner with the female biped (aka home-for-the-summer marketing professional Katie Underwood) and make babies. Naturally, the bipeds have more complicated lives than a yenta honey badger, and they do their best to push back against Fluffy, Katie's matchmaking mom, and their own screaming hormones. Back in their high school days, Bowie did his cruel adolescent best to make Katie's life miserable because she wasn't as pretty or popular as his girlfriend. Katie bears the scars to this day, and at 29, she is positive she wants nothing to do with him. However, when she shows up with a litter of abandoned cougar cubs and volunteers to help feed them, nature runs its inevitable course. This hilarious story is sure to delight both Fluffy and contemporary romance fans. Agent: Sarah Phair, Trident Media Group. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
