Blurb: LOVE IS THE GREATEST RISK OF ALL
After multiple tours of duty, Brandon Forte returns to his hometown on a personal mission: to open a facility for military service dogs like Haydn, a German shepherd who’s seen his share of combat and loss. It also brings him back to Sophie Kim, a beacon of light in his life . . . and the one woman he can’t have. But Forte’s success means he’s made enemies in high places. Enemies who are now after Sophie . . .
When Forte enlisted and left without saying goodbye, Sophie did her best to move on. But with her first love back in town, looking sexier than ever, she’s constantly reminded of what they could have had. Then after he risks himself for her, Sophie realizes she’ll have to put her life in the hands of the man who broke her heart, knowing the danger -and the sparks between them- could consume them both.
Review: This book was so amazing that after I finished it, I went and got the first two and glommed them in a streak of pure gluttony. It took a ho-hum weekend and turned it into an I love Piper Drake extravaganza! She put some alpha males, beautiful rescue canines, and smart feisty women together and created….magic!
This is the third in the series and I have to say she saved the best for last. Omg these were the most freaking stubborn people in the whole damn world. Argh! If I could have driven to New Hope and slapped them upside the head, I would have. But so much cooler that I felt so invested, right? I have to give it to the girl, however. What he did to her when they were teenagers was so amazingly wrong and bad. I understand that he had reasons and there were issues, but jeez? Build a bridge and get over yourself!
The climax was exciting and well written with characters you become attached to. And for me? The best part is the dogs. I love rescue dogs. In my real life I cover a state USAR team that has an amazing canine team and I’ve had the privilege to meet and work with them. They are amazing and feisty, and their handlers have such a strong commitment and dedication to serving the greater good. Thanks for including then in this thought-provoking, suspenseful series!
