TBR reviewer: Luta Wolf
Nate is hiding a deadly secret and plans to live out the rest of his life alone. When he is
assigned as head investigator to a missing dogs case he doesn't expect to be working so closely with the town veterinarian, Jordan.
As they work together to discover who is kidnapping these dogs, old feelings are brought
to the surface. Can they be together again or will other problems force them apart?
I’m not always a fan of plots that are about finding love again from a past relationship, however, the author played this pretty well. It never crossed that line of “how in the world could you take that person back”, so as a reader, I felt able to lay back and enjoy.
The first few chapters were a little choppy, with the character connection hard to come by. The details were also a little slow in coming but once we get into the real meat of the story, it began to flow much more seamlessly with an added plot of animal cruelty that not only educated but pulled at the heart-strings.
I only have one real complaint and that is the characters, they were a study in extremes. It made for some hot bed romp scenes but by the end, I thought I might need to go out and get some bi-polar medication. Nate Thrillson is a typical male in his in ability to communicate which as you can imagine caused no end of problems but add in his extreme ego and you almost have a cave man. Jordon gullibility as a teen had me wanting to scream but at the same time want to cheer for the sheer creativeness and determination. While as an adult she is less naive, she’s only gotten more creative and determined with a bit of an ego herself.
All together this is a really enjoyable book that I had fun reading.
