Force of Attraction by D.D. Ayres – a Review
The only thing more powerful than fear is desire…
A seasoned K-9 officer with the police in Maryland, Cole Jamison has left her old life behind her. With a new home and a new partner—a protective canine named Hugo—Cole is ready for fresh challenges. A crucial position on an important drug task force is exactly what she wants…until she discovers her gorgeous, infuriating ex-husband will be the DEA agent in charge.
FORCE OF ATTRACTION
Agent Scott Lucca may be a pro when it comes to undercover assignments, but this job is daunting even for him. Posing as a happy couple on the dog competition circuit means he and Cole need to get a lot closer than they’ve been in years. Playing a live-in couple should seem like a walk in the park compared to tracking a brutal criminal, but suddenly nothing could be more dangerous than the passionate fire they’ve rekindled…
Force of Attraction by D.D. Ayres is the 2nd book in her K-9 Rescue series. This series revolves around police rescue that uses K-9 dogs, and their owners. Cole Jamison is our heroine, and she is a K-9 police officer with her dog, Hugo. Cole is on the rise in her department, as she works hard to prove herself. She gets a surprise call to attend a meeting with DEA agents. While being offered an undercover mission, on a dog show competition, she gets a shocking surprise. Cole finds out that her partner in this mission will be her ex-husband, Scott.
Scott Lucca has never gotten over Cole, whom he lost due to his reckless undercover assignment a few years before. He is determined to prove to Cole that he still loves her, and it was his then assignment that screwed things up. Cole accepts the job offer, though she wants no part of Scott. What follows is a difficult assignment of pretending to be a happy couple with Scott, and working hard with Hugo, who is more a police dog, not a show dog.
While they play the part, and try to find out who in the show circuit is responsible for using dogs to bring in drugs, Scott has another issue that threatens him and his family.
It was a nice romance of a second chance at love, with Cole slowly realizing that she still loves Scott, and must find a way to trust him again. Scott worries that he has put her life in danger, as someone has discovered his identity from a previous undercover assignment and wants to hurt Scott anyway he can. The two cases make for an exciting story as we race to the final climax, with lives on the line and a surprising revelation as to the dog drug dealers. Force of Attraction was an exciting, romantic, sexy story, which I wholly recommend you to read.
