Training dogs and war are two things that David Cruz is good at. This ex-soldier’s toughest job is Atlas (who is a Belgian Malinois dog); his handler died while they were in combat together. There is no one at Hope’s Crossing that is able to get through all of the grief that the dog has. Evelyn Jones (a dog whisperer) comes into the facility and gets into Atlas’s heart. This curvy blond has skills, something that David hates to admit, is not just limited to dogs. Lyn’s work with the pooch puts her in danger, and David will go to great lengths to protect her.

Lyn finds out that David’s battle scars make him quite qualified to train these dogs. He is both tough and gentle, when he is supposed to be, David has been able to get closer than anyone else has been. The dog is going to be willing to let her in too. Someone is desperate, so much so that they do not want her working with Atlas. Trust, courage, and teamwork are going to be able to save the dog and two troubled hearts.

Fans of the novel found the author is able to give insights to things that some people may not have thought of.

Elisa Hall shows up, very cautious and on the run, he wants to protect her more than anything else.

Elisa cannot quite keep her past behind her for too long and is unwilling to put anyone else in danger. Alex guards her fiercely, but looks at her quite tenderly. It makes her feel a bit safer. Or more terrified about the secrets she is keeping putting those around her in danger. They will only be able to get away from their demons by trusting each other and letting go.

This is fast paced and action packed with plenty of romance to keep the pages turning. The novel shows two people work on their own struggles and develop a relationship with one another.

It takes him back to Sophie Kim, who is a beacon of light for him, and someone that he cannot have. His success means that he has some enemies in high places.

Now those enemies are after Sophie. When he enlisted, he left and did not say goodbye to her. Sophie tried her best to move on from him. Brandon is back and looking better than ever, and is always reminded of what they could have had together. He risks himself for Sophie and she realizes that she will have to put her life in Brandon’s hands. This is the man that broke her heart. She knows the danger and sparks could consume both of them.

Fans of the novel find that the main characters grab their attention and it is great to see them together. Some liked the way that Piper Drake writes, and puts all of the raw emotions and some of the build up towards the second chance romance in this novel. She writes in such a way that you cannot help but get pulled in to the main characters’ stories and keep on reading until you are finished. Yet another winner from a writer only capable of writing winners. Sophie and Forte are well drawn character, and you get the sense that you can see them grow together as a couple.
