Explosive Secrets



Implicated by her criminal cousin, Nicki Johnson is now the target of a murderous gang. Dark-haired policeman Jackson Worth thinks she is hiding something, but his remarkable bomb-sniffing dog has no such reservations. He's there to protect her—no judgments, no questions.

And Jackson is a man of honor. He'll stand by this beauty and her unborn child. Because it is the right thing to do. And because guarding her has left his battle-scarred heart open to the possibility of love. Which changes everything…

My Review:

We're getting deeper and deeper into the complex series-length suspense and I'm dying to know who The Boss is! Hansen does a great job of writing her own unique story while juggling clues and characters from the previous four books in the Texas K-9 Unit series. It's all culminating in the big reveal in a couple of months.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this series -- love the K-9 angle and the fact that every book highlights a different service dog. So yes, while I love the heroes and heroines, it's the dogs that steal my heart every time. Titan, a black lab, plays a great supporting role in this story. How can anyone resist a bomb-sniffing dog with PTSD?!

Nicki and Jackson's love story has a rocky start and a next to impossible premise. Nothing like throwing the impossible at two characters and then sitting back to see what happens.Trepidation and regrets, uncertainty mixed with longing. The romantic thread is pulled as tautly as the suspense in this page-turner.
