BOOK BLURB:

 LOVE IS THE GREATEST RISK OF ALL

After multiple tours of duty, Brandon Forte returns to his hometown on a personal mission: to open a facility for military working dogs like Haydn, a German Shepherd Dog who’s seen his share of combat and loss. It also brings him back to Sophie Kim, a beacon of light in his life . . . and the one woman he can’t have. But Forte’s success means he’s made enemies in high places. Enemies who are now after Sophie . . .


When Forte enlisted and left without saying goodbye, Sophie did her best to move on. But with her first love back in town, looking sexier than ever, she’s constantly reminded of what they could have had. Then after he risks himself for her, Sophie realizes she’ll have to put her life in the hands of the man who broke her heart, knowing the danger -and the sparks between them- could consume them both.

PRAISE: "With an action-filled plot riddled with suspense and tension, Drake’s latest in her True Heroes series is the best one yet.  Steady pacing, engaging storytelling and genuine, vulnerable characters (coupled with the endearing heroic dogs that protect and love them) make this romance shine." ~ RT Book Reviews

EXCERPT:

Between one moment and the next, he was right there next to her, kneeling so they were face to face. She let out the air in her lungs in a rush, not sure of what she wanted to do or what he was planning to do. She parted her lips but didn’t say anything, didn’t want to put another question out there for him to address before he answered the one she really wanted to know.
Because she was hoping he was here for her—not his childhood friend—but for the very adult version of her who’d been waiting for him all this time.
Faster than she could react, his lips caught hers. The contact rushed through her in a lightning shot of surprise. Years of bottled-up frustration bubbled up and she leaned into him with a soft gasp.
And then he pulled back and she was left trying to catch her breath.
Slowly, carefully, he slid his arms around her back and under her knees. He cradled her against his chest and tucked her head under his chin. Circled as she was in his embrace, he held her close. He pressed his lips against her hair.
“That was too close yesterday, Sophie.” His voice was low, gruff, and almost cracked with emotion. “The thought of losing you just about killed me.”




MY REVIEW:


5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, pain, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
Extreme Honor (True Heroes #1)
Ultimate Courage (True Heroes #2)


This is Sophie and Brandon’s story. Sophie and Brandon have a past where they were together. But when he came back from his tours he was only offering friendship. Now they have settled in that relationship even if it’s not what they both want. Having that is better than nothing. But when Sophie is in danger and he almost loses her forever he knows he needs to step up and protect her and also fight for the love they both have for each other. Can he put aside his fears and claim her as his own? Can he figure out who is out to hurt her? Does it have to do with him or something she accidentally got herself involved in? Can Sophie allow him to claim her for his own? What happens if she has to let him go again? Or will the danger that is out to get her find her before they can figure out there future?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book.
