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 . . .
First off...that cover...hot damn! Then of course there is the story...David is former military and now works with his buddies training military dogs. A special case comes to David, a dog whose handler was killed in action and happened to be David's good friend, and the dog, Atlas, now refuses to follow commands from anyone. Evelyn helps with dog training and was asked by her step father to make Atlas a special case. They each have their own way of handling situations like Atlas' but they need to work together for the dog's sake.
While working with Atlas, David makes a huge discovery about what happened his handler. At the same time trouble seems to come at Evelyn & David from all angles. Can they work together to find out who is trying to hurt Atlas?
Extreme Honor was a fast paced, edge of your seat story with quite the sizzling scenes between David & Evelyn. This is the first book by Piper J Drake I have read, I look forward to more in this series.
