Publisher's Summary

Honor, Loyalty, Love
David Cruz is good at two things: war and training dogs. The ex-soldier's toughest case is Atlas, a Belgian Malinois whose handler died in combat. Nobody at Hope's Crossing kennel can break through the animal's grief. That is, until dog whisperer Evelyn Jones walks into the facility...and into Atlas' heart. David hates to admit that the curvy blonde's mesmerizing effect isn't limited to canines. But when Lyn's work with Atlas puts her in danger, David will do anything to protect her.
Lyn realizes that David's own battle scars make him uniquely qualified for his job as a trainer. Tough as nails yet gentle when it counts, he's gotten closer to Atlas than anyone else - and he's willing to put his hardwired suspicion aside to let her do the same. But someone desperate enough to kill doesn't want Lyn working with Atlas. Now only teamwork, trust, and courage can save two troubled hearts and the dog who loves them both....

Dogs, Military Guy & Smart female - Perfect combo

For me the most troubling aspect was having 2 narrators--who would read the entire chapter--and all voices. Then the other narrator would read the next chapter--and all the voices. I think either one could have read the entire story and it wouldn't have been so jarring. Other than that, the narrators portrayed the male and female voices clearly.

I loved the story and look forward to reading more in this series.

David and Lyn had a rough first meeting but they came together for the sake of Atlas, the dog. They both are attracted to each other, but Lyn wants to keep their relationship on a professional level. David reluctantly agrees. But the attraction grows.

Lyn's relationship with her stepfather is "odd". She was very sympathetic to David's relationship with his family--but very negative and sharp with her stepfather. At times it was like she was baiting him or looking for something to be mad about.

I loved Atlas. What a great character. He is my favorite part of the story.

I believe PD could have worked Rojas & Forte into the story more--especially as they will be in future books. Thank heavens for that! I'm ready to read the next book!

Finally a Hunky Guy with a Heart

So glad someone has written an entertaining romantic suspense featuring a smart, hunky guy who loves animals and appreciates a strong confident woman.

After experiencing the horrors of war, Cruz wanted a peaceful life training dogs with his friends. Enter Lyn, who was hired by the Army to assist in rehabilitating one of their military dogs (Atlas) who was traumatized by loosing his handler.

While Cruz and Lyn had professional differences in the beginning, Cruz always treated her with gentleness, respect and admiration. Cruz was not an alpha jerk or sexual bully; he had seen enough suffering to last a lifetime.

Likewise Lyn was kind, confident and spunky - not a submissive bimbo - who managed to use keep her cool even when confronted by unexpected violence. This was my first novel by Piper J. Drake but it won't be my last.
