IrresistibleForce

ISHO SummaryWhen adrenaline runs high, so does the force of desire…

For Shay Appleton, it’s love at first sight when a gorgeous stray dog is brought into the animal shelter where she works. She just knows he’ll make a terrific watch dog—and with an abusive ex who won’t let go, she needs all the protection she can get. But Shay never suspected that her new pet is actually a trained police K-9 named Bogart—until Bogart’s even more gorgeous, human partner shows up on her doorstep.

Officer James Cannon is one tall, strong alpha male who’s convinced that Shay stole his dog. But once he gets closer to the suspect, he realizes that this stubborn, independent woman not only needs a guard dog, she needs James as well. It seems that someone from her past is stalking her, and threatening her life. When danger meets desire, will James risk his career and his best friend…to protect the woman who’s stolen his heart?

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. This is book one in the series K-9 Rescue.

I’m not gonna lie.  The cover definitely caught my attention – not just with the hot guy but the dog too.

I totally loved James! He’s hot. He’s truly a nice guy and he’s a cop (which automatically increases the hotness level). In tracking down his missing K-9 partner, Bogart, he meets Shay. He’s drawn to her and their chemistry sizzles.  Add to this the fact that Bogart likes Shay too.  He ends up trying to protect her from crazy stuff that keeps happening to her.

Shay Appleton has got to be one of the toughest, strongest females I’ve ever met in any book.  She’s endured so much but she keeps on going.  I’ll admit that at one point in this book I felt so bad for her and I didn’t know how it would be possible for everything to turn out positively for her.

D.D. Ayres has created characters that you love and want things to work out for but she equally creates characters that you hate.  I don’t think I’ve hated any exes as much as the ones in this book.

I enjoyed this book a lot and gave it five delicious cups of coffee and I’ll throw in some doughnuts too (I couldn’t help it.  The cop thing compelled me to throw in the doughnuts. Yes, I’m a nerd.)

Title:  Necessary Force

Author:  D.D. Ayres

Release Date:  July 1, 2014

NecessaryForce

ISHO SummaryIt 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?

I’ll be honest.  I don’t usually prefer to read novellas but I so enjoyed Irresistible Force  that I decided to buy Necessary Force and give it a shot.

I loved it!  It was a fast read. Even though it is a novella there was suspense.  I was so curious as to what would happen.  Lucky for Georgie, Brad (hunky FBI agent) and Zander his K-9 partner were on the case and helped her with the crazy stalker and possible bomber.  I was totally surprised by the outcome.  Good job D.D. Ayres!!!

I gave this four yummy coffees (would’ve been five if it was longer) and I’ll throw in some doggie treats for Zander.

What I’m currently reading:

A Flawed Heart by April Emerson

I just received this ARC for my honest opinion.  I just started it and so far so good.  I will post my opinion soon.

What I recently read:

It was a long weekend for me and I was able to read and read and read…

UnBeloved by Madeline Sheehan

I had been waiting for this for a while.  Like everyone else that loves this series, we finally got to read Dorothy’s story. As usual I got sucked into this world of bad ass bikers and I did not want to leave.  As expected Madeline Sheehan did not disappoint. If you haven’t read this series, do yourself a favour and go read it.

Irresistible Force by D.D. Ayres

I received this ARC from NetGalley and went into it not knowing what to expect.  What a pleasant surprise.  I really enjoyed it. Sexy and suspenseful is a very nice combination.  My opinion will post closer to release date.

Cooper by Harper Sloan

What a great book.  If you’ve read the other books in the Corps Security Series then you definitely don’t want to miss this one.  I’ve always said that Greg Cage is my favourite from this series.  He still is but Asher Cooper is a very close second.  Harper Sloan makes you love all of these characters.

What I hope to read next:

Tamed by Emma Chase

Having loved Tangled and Twisted, I am definitely looking forward to reading this one.  I love Emma Chase’s writing style.  I have no doubt that I will love this one.

Time for you to tell me what your W…W…W… are.  SHARING IS CARING!
