Published by Forever Genres: Contemporary, Suspense
Former Soldier David Cruz may have left the military but he didn’t go far. He now helps our canine heroes rehabilitate. At the Hope’s Crossing Kennel David trains dogs in need of special help. His current trainee is Atlas, a Belgian Malinois who lost his partner in combat. Since Atlas arrived David has been unable to create a bond with the dog.
Evelyn Jones a successful dog whisperer has been sent in to help with Atlas. She’s a firecracker with the attitude to match. David may be put off by her attitude but he can’t deny she’s gorgeous. Lyn also manages to immediately connect with Atlas. It doesn’t take long for David to connect with Lyn as well.
Grief isn’t the only thing Atlas must overcome. Danger haunts the shadows waiting to strike out. Will David be able to protect Lyn and Atlas?
I LOVE Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake. There are so many things about this book that I love I don’t know where to begin. I was enthralled right away with Atlas’ background. Drake created a wonderful connection between the reader and her characters in Extreme Honor. She also managed to develop top-notch suspense surrounding heroic Atlas and the danger lurking in their midst.
David definitely has the sensual, soldier with a heart of gold vibe oozing off the pages. He has plenty of internal scars of his own but I wouldn’t mind taking him home to meet the parents! I get such a kick out of his first meeting with Lyn. She’s giving him the alpha chick, “I’m not taking any sh*t” attitude, but he manages to play it cool and sexy. I knew then that these two where not going to have any trouble in the chemistry department.
Extreme Honor captures the heart with its endearing characters, steamy passion and fantastic plot! I was on the edge of my seat from page one until the thrilling end! I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in Piper J. Drake’s True Heroes series.
