When one door closes … second chances open another …
Ethan was lost after a major accident abruptly shifted him from a military life to a civilian one, from working with dogs to odd jobs … In that time, he’d spent months healing from his physical injuries. When he connects with Badger and the rest of his Titanium Corp. group of former SEALs, Badger offers Ethan an opportunity he can’t refuse. A chance to do the work he used to do … with a twist.
Cinnamon works from home as a project manager plus is heavily involved in global dog rescues—dogs of all kinds. When Ethan walks into the next door’s vet’s office with an injured shepherd in his arms, she sees another lost soul—just like the canine ones she helps.
Ethan knows he’s about to take a dangerous step, but he’s on the job, and no one—on the job or not—hurts animals while he’s around. This poor shepherd has taken enough abuse, and Ethan fears she is only the tip of a nightmare he’s determined to uncover. But he knows she’s going to lead him in the right direction.
He has his sights set on saving one dog in particular, Sentry: K9 File 01.
K9 book 1
I enjoyed the book very much and I felt everything that Cinn was going through and not every book needs to be hot and steamy it was about K9 and how we loose track of them after they come back from the war.
Good start to a new series!
Emotions Not Found
This whole book felt like a draft. There was no emotional connection and the relationship was poorly developed.
Overall there was an empty feeling to the whole thing. Too much distance between story and feeling. More Tell than Show.
The pain was obviously fictional to the point I could read it without cringing (which isn’t right).
I want to be able to imagine, feel, the struggles the character endure. Put my self in their shoes. Not read the tenth person account of of a whispered story.
This entire narrative felt forced and like the writer had forgotten to add in the other details that come with later editing.
Also for the first time ever I had hardly any emotional attachment to the dogs involved, they were pure fiction, not real animals I could cry over if something happened.
Then there were the massive plot holes and the anticlimactic overall story.
This was pure sympathy fiction not empathy filled with hot air.
