Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Federal K-9 #1
Title: Lock ‘N’ Load by Tee O’Fallon
Author: Tee O’Fallon
Publisher: Amara, Entangled Publishing
Published: May 28th, 2018
What a brilliant start to a new series this proved to be – I really can’t wait to read the subsequent books in the series!
Take Trista Gold – one, shy, introvert, CIA computer geek, someone highly talented at analysing, programming and searching for evidence of spies on the black web . . . . make her a talented Russian linguist – then have her inadvertently make herself a target for those she’s endeavouring to uncover. A target they attempt to assassinate not just once but twice! Now have her saved both times by a handsome CIA K-9 officer, Sergeant Matt Connors, even though she’s scared of dogs!
This is a brilliant spy thriller and romantic suspense story. The main characters are superbly developed, both strong in their own way yet having vulnerable aspect that help make them easy to relate to. The situations in which they find themselves are action packed, life threatening and portrayed so you almost feel you are there with them. The attraction may be there from very early but, for very different reasons, neither act upon it until they had built up a relationship based on trust. This action packed story is packed with intrigue and I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into it. There are other excellent characters in Matt’s friends and their K-9 partners – I’m hoping some of these will feature as the main characters in future stories in the series! If you enjoy romantic suspense – with the stress on suspense – and stories involving K-9s you’ll probably love this story, too.
I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Crack CIA analyst Trista Gold is a whiz with the computer, but not so much with people. She hides behind her job, analyzing Top Secret code and making recommendations on national security. She doesn’t need a man in her life. But she will, very soon…
CIA K-9 officer Sgt. Matt Connors suspects that beneath Trista’s uptight appearance, there’s a sexy woman itching to cut loose. But he doesn’t dare act on his attraction. He’s a loner and always will be. Keeping away from Trista is a must-do directive. Until he doesn’t have a choice…
During a routine assignment, Trista stumbles across a cryptic exchange. She doesn’t think much of it…until someone tries to murder her—twice. Both times, Matt had been there to save her. But now she has to hide. And her new bodyguard, Matt, and his K-9 are the only hope she has against the powerful forces that want her dead.
