ARMED ‘N’ READY (Federal K-9 Series Book 2) by Tee O’Fallon
Publication Date: February 25, 2019
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Nick Houston is as tough as they come, and he and his K-9, Saxon, are hot on the trail of a major illegal gun dealer. But his best lead—the beautiful owner of the Dog Park Café, Andi Hardt––is not cooperating. Doesn’t matter how sexy she is, or that his dog seems to be in love with her. She’s a suspect and he won’t cross that line. Ever.
Andi Hardt sank everything into her dream business—the Dog Park Café, a restaurant catering to dogs as much as people. Now everything is in jeopardy because of one extremely frustrating, incredibly hot state trooper. Like it or not, she’s in Nick’s crosshairs, and he’s calling the shots. Her only option: cooperate, or lose everything she’s worked so hard for.
Nick and Andi are catapulted straight into the danger zone, forcing them to make life-altering choices, and face their desires. Risking his life for Andi is the easy part. Risking his heart is the toughest assignment Nick will face.
I truly enjoyed this installment in the Federal K-9 series. Andi was easy to understand and know, making me like her from the start. I became invested in Nick immediately as well. I like that the author didn’t go too far into his closed off, determined nature, but rather lightly used that to help understand his past. They made a great couple, even when disagreeing. The people around them rounded out the story and made me wish I was a part of it all…even the dogs seemed familiar. The danger around them built to a wonderful climax, making me read faster and faster, as the sexy romance blossomed. I cannot wait for book 3!
