For Shay Appleton, it’s love at first sight when a gorgeous stray dog is brought into the animal shelter where she works. She just knows he’ll make a terrific watch dog—and with an abusive ex who won’t let go, she needs all the protection she can get. But Shay never suspected that her new pet is actually a trained police K-9 named Bogart—until Bogart’s even more gorgeous, human partner shows up on her doorstep.
Officer James Cannon is one tall, strong alpha male who’s convinced that Shay stole his dog. But once he gets closer to the suspect, he realizes that this stubborn, independent woman not only needs a guard dog, she needs James as well. It seems that someone from her past is stalking her, and threatening her life. When danger meets desire, will James risk his career and his best friend…to protect the woman who’s stolen his heart?
Irresistible Force by D.D. Ayres
Shay Appleton escapes to her family lakeside cabin with her newly adopted dog to get away from her abusive ex-boyfriend. Little did she know trouble was following close on her heals. It seems her dog is actually a K9 named Bogart and was stolen from his partner, bring Officer James Cannon crashing into her life. She also has a psycho ex hot on her tale.
Angry isn’t the only thing that explodes when Shay and James meet, you could cut the sexual tension with a knife. James quickly realizes that Shay is in trouble and he and Bogart comes to her rescue.
There is lots of emotional baggage and personal conflicts getting in the way of a healthy relationship. The one thing they have in common is Bogart, the extremely talented and wonderfully smart K9.
Irresistible Force was a good story that deals with stalking and an abusive ex while the characters work through their emotional issues. The plot was pretty predictable but enjoyable so I give Irresistible Force 3.5 stars.
Drool worthy cover, no pun intended.
