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.

Fabulous action and suspense!

4.5 Stars
This is book 1 In the K-9 Files series and it features Ethan and Cinn. These two have a quick, strange friendship with an implied attraction. Any other book would have had me pulling my hair out at the slow pace of their romance but considering his personality, state of mind and her sort of prickly (not sure that’s the correct word to describe her) personality, their romance moved at the perfect pace. The story line was so good, full of action and adventure, that the romance took a back seat until much later in the book. The dogs were awesome and Ethan confidence in working with them was exciting.

I love the concept and this first book in the series hits the mark! The story line has great flow and the characters are all mostly familiar from other series. I can’t wait to see what adventure the next book takes us on.

Ethan the K-9 files

I loved this book. Could not put it down. I have a shepherd and know how loyal they can be. I’m looking forward to reading all in this series

MWD suspense story

I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 1 in The K9 Files series. This book centers around Ethan and Cinnamon. (yep Cinnamon is a human not the K9...)

Ethan out of the military and lost after a major accident abruptly ended his career and took the life of his working dog. Seemingly drifting, Ethan connects with Badger (see the SEALs Of Steel series) and Badger offers Ethan a chance to work with service dogs again… Tracking down several Military Working Dogs that have gone missing.

Cinnamon works as a project manager and is involved in global dog rescues. (I suppose this “matches” them.

Ethan finds a shepherd that’s injured and meets up with Cinnamon at the neighborhood vets office. And the story moves on from there.

I’m going to preface this; I felt there was just not enough backstory and information in order for me to get firmly involved and committed to this story. The whole thing felt rushed and almost like an outline was followed and little boxes were checked off in what could have been a great beginning to a new series. Working dogs, in my opinion are the greatest heroes in the world. They serve and protect those they love, for cuddles and belly tickles (and maybe a few tennis balls..)

I was very excited about this series and just didn’t feel it hit the mark. I have read everything Ms Dale has published, and I know her work usually flows much more smoothly. Also, I wouldn’t really classify this as a romance, but as more of a mystery/suspense story. I still think the book is worth your time and money.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
