Publisher Description

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.

A great start to the series.

An awesome book in a new series and even got to see some of our favourite characters from other books that Dale writes. Ethan is damaged after getting injured and his trained dog killed. He doesn’t know where he fits in until he is given the task of finding Sentey K9-01. Cinnamon has her dogs, her house with land and her jobs of rescuing dogs from around the world and her day job. As Ethan finds a dog and chases down a lead bad guys target Cinn for the dogs. As her life in on the line it’s down to Ethan and two rescue dogs to do some damages control. A fabulous book that i read in one sitting. Can’t wait for more.

What an excellent start to this new series! Ethan appears to be a gruff loner but hidden beneath his exterior is a concerned, kind man who cares deeply for animals especially trained service dogs.

How his story develops is written with great understanding and skill to make this an interesting and entertaining book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
