Nervous Nellie says…….
This is a contemporary military romance. 172 pages, so it’s a quick read. No cliffhanger, can be a standalone, a little violence but nothing grisly, sex was alluded, but not the driving force for this book. Plenty of military descriptions of battle and weapons, definitely good vs. bad. I loved it.
Normally, I don’t review contemporary romance because it “could” happen in real life, but when I saw this book was dedicated to the Military Working Dogs PLUS part of sales to be donated to the foundation that helps train dogs to be companions to servicemen and women who suffer from PTSD, I had to have it. My support will always stand with our military. The things they do, see and are put through just so I can be free, deserve major recognition.
This book was a fun read. The couple were brought together for the sole purpose of healing a service dog shot in the line of duty. The romance was fun, the bantering between the team-mates was good-natured and the rescue operation had a strong willed female that practically rescued herself. This was a score all the way around.
