Top Secret Target

GIVEAWAY
MENTINK, DANA
TOP SECRET TARGET

Her true identity is a secret
The next explosive Military K-9 Unit thriller

With his ex-wife on a killer's hit list, military police lieutenant Ethan Webb and his K-9 partner, Titus, must guard the woman posing as her. But courageous private investigator Kendra Bell refuses to be just bait -- she wants to help bring down the killer. Can she play her part without falling for her pretend ex-husband?

My Review:

I somehow got behind on this Military K-9 Unit series so I happily get to play catch-up with books 3, 4 & 5 -- and have to do it quickly since the sixth book releases in September. And this is a long series -- nine books! I'm not sure I can handle the over-arcing suspense through to November! That wily Sullivan (crazy killer/stalker dude) is so brazen it has me spitting mad! Gah! Thankfully, each story has it's own mystery (or two) to solve so each book brings some resolution and, of course, a romantical happily-ever-after. :-)

But, oh no, early on I feared that I wouldn't connect with this heroine because of this:

"I don't like dogs," she snapped.
"That's okay. He probably doesn't like you either." (p17)

Bwahahaha -- great comeback, Ethan! And one of the reasons I loved him right away. He and his dog, Titus, are simpatico. Seriously, they know what the other is thinking and the they finish each other's sentences. Blissful sigh -- I do so adore a dog whisperer hero! And Titus -- that's him on the cover, isn't he handsome? -- well, he's right up there as far as hero material go so this book offers up double swoons for the canine devotees out there.

Thankfully, Kendra warms up to Titus -- seriously, how could she resist his charm? Speaking of which, Ethan has a bushel full of his own so I was a goner for most the read. Luckily there were enough hair-raising moments to slap me out of my fangirling stupor. And it's all punctuated with some great (and unexpected) laugh-out-loud moments! That's sweet perfection to this happily-ever-after-lovin' reader.

  1. Ignore the attempted comments...I seriously hate autocorrect! Here's what I intended to say:

    I've only read Mission to Protect by Terri Reed so I'm also woefully behind on this fabulous K-9 series! I didn't realize there is going to be nine installments, whew :-)

    1. Ha! I deleted the deleted so it's all good. Auto correct sure can get funny notions sometimes. The ninth book in this series is a Christmas novella collection -- stories so I'm thinking the grand finale is November. But yes, this one has been longer than the usual six month continuity series. Not that I'm complaining -- the more dog stories the better, I say! Good luck, Trixi.
