Happy Monday, Reader Friends!
Can you believe July is almost over? I’m sue some of you are enjoying the last days of your summer. But before you get back to a fall routine, let me share some reviews so you can add to your TBR pile. Today’s review is about Lynette Eason’s Called to Protect.
Let’s get started!
About the Book
The Blurb: “For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiance for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She’s over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.
When US Marshall Blake MacCallum’s daughter goes missing, he’s ordered to kill the judge he’s protecting and tell no one about his daughter’s disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?”
This book hooked me from the prologue. It’s probably one of the best prologues I’ve ever read. When the story starts, it’s six months after the prologue and I tell you, it grips you, knowing what that means. It invests you in the characters lives.
The suspense side of things was high octane. I was tense waiting to figure out who the number one bad guy was and how it was all connected. I was pleased that I guessed correctly, but still, the story didn’t end when the bad guys figured it out as well. I was on pins and needles waiting for the victims to be saved and for Chloe and Blake to save the day.
The romance side of things was pure sweetness. I loved the sparks between the two and the easy way they fell for one another. I look forward to seeing them in future books in this series like Izzy (from book 1) was in this book. The St. John family is one that intrigues you and has you wondering if they’ll all find happily ever after.
