Barb's Book Review... Necessary Force

Necessary Force
It was supposed to be a sexy calendar shoot to raise money for K-9 service dogs. Photographer Georgie Flynn never expected to break all her personal rules and jump into bed with one of the hunky men posing. And after their steamy night together, she certainly never expected to see him again…despite their powerful connection.

When she's targeted by a stalker and possible bomber, Georgie finds that her gorgeous one-night stand is the only one who can help.

Brad Lawson, an FBI operative, and his K-9 bomb sniffing partner are assigned to protect the pretty photographer--and this time, he’s determined to keep things professional. He just didn't count on their explosive connection rekindling. But with a deadly threat on the horizon, will he be able to keep his body’s demands in check and complete his mission?

Okay, I have to say I loved this little novella. And honestly it makes me want more of Brad and Georgie. And of course Zander. Who could say no to that pup and his kisses. (grins) It was a good story. One that maybe can be explored in a book in the future? (makes puppy eyes at Mrs. Ayres) If not it was a great read and I can see myself reading it again.. just as I have done with the others in this series. The thing about this story that I liked the best is it shows the depths to which the partners (man and K-9) are connected. I mean when you are with your partner literally 24/7 its to be expected. I loved it!

***small spoiler alert***

In this first installment of the K-9 Rescue series we meet a cool chick named Georgie. She’s a photographer. Well photojournalist with an artistic flair is more accurate. Lover of all things and a sweet, down to earth gal from Nashville who resides and works in Washington, D.C.. A promise to help out her friend Yardley Summers of Harmonie Kennels sets out a course of lust, bliss, disaster and hopefully a happily ever after.

While on the photo shoot for a men's calendar (no not that kind) Georgie captures the moments of men in uniforms (drools) with their K-9 partners. Yeah, who wouldn’t want THAT calendar. The only reason Georgie agrees is for Yardley’s sake. I don’t anyone, whether they be man, woman or K-9 tells Yard no. I digress… So as the day goes on Georgie gets to work. She gets to see the men (who are professionals and not used to being ‘glammed’ up for a camera) in a new way. They are at ease with their partners, their K-9s at their side. There is a very special bond between a handler and his/her K-9 partner. There has to be that bond, that trust in order for the two parts to be a whole.

All is going good in Geogie’s day then she meets… tall, dark and oh so yummy. Phillip Dexter and his yellow lab Zander. There is that instant attraction between them and it makes Georgie a little uneasy. But as with anything in life her attraction, his attraction and a few drinks turns into a night of passion. Then the next day he’s gone.

Two months later though he comes back into her life. When her stalker (the secret admirer as he dubbed himself) goes too far, Georgie happens to be in the right place at the right time.. and then.. a hail storm gets her stuck between a rock and the FBI. Seems her secret admirer is into bombs and now he is dragging Georgie along with him. She quickly becomes a suspect. And when the stranger from two months ago walks into her apartment with his K-9 the fun really begins. Seems FBI agent Brad Lawson and his yellow Lab, Zander were actually at Harmonie Kennels months ago to keep a watch over her. Checking her out to see if she was really in the game of bombs with her stalker. Brad had cleared her at that time but now… the stakes had been raised.

As the stalkers intentions become more and more real it is the FBI’s hope that he will slip up and give Georgie something to use against her. But she is not going down like that. Georgie is willing to do anything she can to clear her name and help stop her stalker. The bad part of that.. (well one anyway) is that she is now face to face with Brad. He is her new shadow. He is there to keep her safe.. as only he can. He still has a thing for her and is willing to do what needs to be done to keep her safe. Thier personal times together can wait. For now. Or can they? When the lines get blurred things take a turn to the left. In order to get them right again they have to work together to stop the madness her stalker sets in front of them.
