She’s bringing his son home
A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans’s son safely home is more than a job. It’s a mission she can’t fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…
Other Books in the Series
This book had a lot going on emotionally, so brace yourself for a roller coaster ride of emotions! Love, respect, fear, suspense, worry, excitement, happiness, sorrow, and surprise. And don’t forget there are dogs involved!! Nothing makes a book wonderful like a dog character does, for this animal lover anyways.
This was a fast paced storyline, so make sure you are taking in every single world or else you might miss something. I liked Shannon’s character most of all. She had a heart of gold, and was dedicated to her job. But most of all, she was compassionate and not clingy. I do not like it when the main female character is clingy to the person they have feelings for. It ruins the story for me. But here, Shannon was her own person, and was more than willing to give Sawyer the time and space he needed throughout the book to figure things out on his own. Due to the circumstance surrounding their “feelings” for each other, this was extremely important. These characters needed to make sure they were actually feeling something for each other, and not just full of emotion during the crisis of Sawyer’s missing son.
Overall I felt it was a good book. It has a little bit of something for everyone. Just make sure you have your tissues nearby. There will be times that your eyes will get a little moist! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
