Hot military heroes, the women who love them, and the dogs that always have their backs. EXTREME HONOR is the first book in a high adrenaline contemporary suspense series from Piper J. Drake.
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's 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 hard-wired 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 . . .
We love books with animals in them and *spoiler alert* don’t worry, the dog is completely healthy at the end of the book. 🙂 We like the concept of the ex-military guys opening the kennel together and we are totally on board for the next books in the series. The hero was instantly likable, his primary focus is the welfare of the animals under his care. The heroine starts out a little rocky, but as the story and her character develop it all flows together. There was good dialog between the characters and Piper provided enough ‘technical’ knowledge without weighing down the story.
We rated Extreme Honor 4 stars.
