Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Nick Houston is as tough as they come, and he and his K-9, Saxon, are hot on the trail of a major illegal gun dealer. But his best lead—the beautiful owner of the Dog Park Café, Andi Hardt––is not cooperating. Doesn’t matter how sexy she is, or that his dog seems to be in love with her. She’s a suspect and he won’t cross that line. Ever.
Andi Hardt sank everything into her dream business—the Dog Park Café, a restaurant catering to dogs as much as people. Now everything is in jeopardy because of one extremely frustrating, incredibly hot state trooper. Like it or not, she’s in Nick’s crosshairs, and he’s calling the shots. Her only option: cooperate, or lose everything she’s worked so hard for.
Nick and Andi are catapulted straight into the danger zone, forcing them to make life-altering choices, and face their desires. Risking his life for Andi is the easy part. Risking his heart is the toughest assignment Nick will face.
Each book in the Federal K-9 series is STANDALONE:
* Lock ‘N’ Load
* Armed ‘N’ Ready
After reading Lock ‘n Load I was very ready to read on about the tight K-9 officers and there dogs. After Matt, we now meet Nick. He is a tough as nails officer, who has a personal vendetta against people who deal in weapons. He has seen firsthanded how those weapons can be used with devastating results.
When he has a search warrant against a criminal, he (literally) stumbles upon Andi, the criminal’s girlfriend. Andi can’t believe her bad luck when she is caught redhanded in her ieny-tieny-bikini, while giving her dog a washing in the tub. The gordious hot detective however, is also the culpritt of all her problems right now: he has frozen her accounts since she is a suspect in an investigation.
Barely able to keep her dog cafe afloat, she really dislikes the broody detective. Too bad his dog is very cute. But when her ex-boyfriend is in danger of being killed, she turns to Nick to help him. Can they trust each other? Find out for yourself in this funny, explosive and fastpaced story. Four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
