Publisher's Summary

Love is an act of bravery.
Retired Navy SEAL Alex Rojas is putting his life back together one piece at a time. Being a single dad to his young daughter and working at Hope's Crossing Kennels to help rehab a former guard dog, he struggles every day to control his PTSD. But when Elisa Hall shows up, on the run and way too cautious, she unleashes his every protective instinct.
Elisa's past never stays in her rearview mirror for long, and she refuses to put anyone else in danger. But with Alex guarding her so fiercely yet looking at her so tenderly, she's never felt safer...or more terrified that the secrets she keeps could put countless people in grave peril. The only way for both to fully escape their demons will take the ultimate act of courage: letting go and learning to trust each other.

Love Love Love the Dog

While I enjoyed the main characters Alex (dog trainer & single dad) and Eiisa (woman on the run from crazy ex-fiancé), the dog (no idea how to spell his name) and Alex's daughter Boom stole the show.

There were some issues with the plot (a little too rushed, a few dumb moments) yet overall it was engaging and entertaining. The author is obviously talented so her books should just keep getting better.

Ultimate Courage

I'm kind of surprised the dog didn't have more of a role in the story, but I guess an unsocialized dog wouldn't interact with people the same way a normal dog would. That said, I liked the twist on "heroine running from abusive ex" storyline.

I have a general complaint about "love at first sight" stories. Especially when the woman is emotionally traumatized by her ex. There's no reason the author can't drag it out over months instead of a single week. All I'd need would be a prologue and a heading saying "6 months later". It would be more believable & not take me out of the story everytime it's mentioned the couple has only known each other for a week. 🙄
