LOVE IS THE GREATEST RISK OF ALLAfter multiple tours of duty, Brandon Forte returns to his hometown on a personal mission: to open a facility for military service dogs like Haydn, a German shepherd who's seen his share of combat and loss. It also brings him back to Sophie Kim, a beacon of light in his life . . . and the one woman he can't have. But Forte's success means he's made enemies in high places. Enemies who are now after Sophie . . .
When Forte enlisted and left without saying goodbye, Sophie did her best to move on. But with her first love back in town, looking sexier than ever, she's constantly reminded of what they could have had. Then after he risks himself for her, Sophie realizes she'll have to put her life in the hands of the man who broke her heart, knowing the danger -and the sparks between them- could consume them both.
Brandon Forte is back in town after leaving his best friend to go in the military without explanation. Forte has a dog training facility where he is training dogs for the police or military. This brings him back in the same town as Sophie Kim the girl he left behind. Things escalate when dangerous things start happening and Sophie is in constant danger. Forte knows he’s made some powerful enemies that now have Sophie in their cross-hairs. Will Brandon be able to save Sophie and show her how he really feels?
In an Oyster Shell – It was a steamy action-packed romance.
The Pearls – This whole series is a great concept. Centered around a dog kennel run by ex-military makes for an endless fodder for narrative. This is the third book in the series and was a great addition. The concept of dogs in the narrative is an interesting aspect. If your an animal lover and want a hero story this book is for you.
The characters were strong and well-developed. I really liked Brandon and his relationship with Sophie. They have been friends for a long time and that’s a great way to start a romance. The tension between the two of them is palpable and Brandon’s response to danger keeps him and Sophie close.
The romance was steamy and satisfying. It was a long time coming and the conclusion was fulfilling.
This book made me go back and read the other books in the series. I hardly every do that.
The Sand – It wasn’t a clean romance.
