About the Book:
For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiancé for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.
When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?
After reading the first book packed with action and excitement, I have to say I was rather disappointed in this one. First, I do want to commend Eason on tackling the difficult subject of human trafficking. As a mother of a young girl, the scenarios that played out in the book were very frightening because I could see them occurring in real life. As for the plot, at times I found myself actually getting bored and found my focus straying to other things. Also, although the interactions between Chloe and Blake were sweet, there wasn't much development and the "romantic" interactions they did have lacked pizzazz. The book had some interesting sections, but overall I was hoping for a more suspenseful plot.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. A review was not required but was voluntary and contains my own thoughts and opinions regarding this literary work.
