Sara Wright is an elite police dog trainer fully committed to her job and happy to avoid any relationships with her coworkers. But when trainee Isabel Marquez enters her life with her gorgeous looks and charm, Sara finds very hard to stick to her own set of rules. Will Sara stay away from Isabel or give love a chance?
This is a sweet romance with the intriguing background of a police K-9 division training facility. Ms. Cummings, who is a police officer herself, submerge the reader into this fascinating world. It is interesting to see how officers and dogs train in different tasks for the detection of explosives. The author develops the bond between Isabel and her dog Chase in a realistic and, at the same time, charming way. Chase steals the show with his unconditional love and work discipline. Theirs is such a strong bond that casts a shadow on Sara and Isabel’s chemistry.
Regarding the romance itself, the attraction is ok but nothing off the charts. Their conflict makes sense in the scheme of things but I didn’t feel enough tension as it was solved fast. There is a bit of action at the end, but it felt rushed too.
Overall, a light and sweet romance with the intriguing background of a police K-9 division training facility. 3.5 stars.
