Real heroes aren't born, they're made
K9 handler Arin Siri doesn't like taking orders, and she works best when it's just her and her dog King out in the field. But when she discovers a wounded soldier of fortune during a Search and Protect mission, she has no choice but to get him to safety. The last time she and the roguish, sexy Jason Landon tangled, they were on opposite sides of the conflict, but this time, he's claiming to need her help.
When Jason wakes up in a hospital on Hawaii's Big Island, he's shocked to discover Arin guarding him. She's the last person he expected to see, but she's also the only person who can help him bring down a kidnapping ring. As they draw closer to danger-and to each other-they must race against the clock to discover who the kidnappers are working for, or risk becoming collateral damage themselves.
She’s a difficult but fantastic character!
This is book 5 in the True Heroes series and it features Arin and Jason. Arin was a unique character because she knew her faults and embraced them freely. She even adjusted her life to better deal with her aggressive personality traits. She’s not a touchy-feely, “let’s share our secrets” kind of woman. I think that’s why Jason worked so well with her. He could read her from the start. The action and suspense unfolded at the perfect rate. With everything going on, I felt well-informed every point. The dogs were awesome and the action wouldn’t have been the same without them.
The end was not what I expected but it was perfection. I felt I knew her by that point and to see her behavior at that moment brought a tear to my eye. This book is fifth in the series but can be read as a standalone. FANTASTIC READ! I can’t wait to read more from this very talented author.
