Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: True Heroes #5
Title: Fierce Justice
Author: Piper J Drake
Publisher: Forever, Grand Central Publishing
Published: February 26th, 2019
I’ve read earlier books in this series and was keen to read this one, too. I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Search and Protect are working with the authorities in Hawaii to help recover people who have been trafficked. Whilst involved in a mission, one of their K-9 handlers, Arin Siri, discovers Jason Landon knocked out. They met on a previous mission when he’d been one of the mercenaries endeavouring to protect someone’s property – property he had been unaware housed people who were being trafficked. Now he’s on his own mission to bring down the kidnapping ring behind the trafficking and it was whilst on a scouting mission he’d been knocked out. Arin is unsure whether to trust him or not but his intel helps, and the opposition are gunning for him . . . So begins an action packed race against time to discover just who is behind the kidnappings and bring them to justice whilst freeing their victims.
What a page turner this story is! King, Arin’s canine partner, has a fantastic starring role in this search for the victims and is amazing. All the human characters have their flaws which somehow make them more believable and easier to relate to. I really appreciate how this author manages to weave threads from previous stories into this one so it can be read and followed by people who haven’t had the pleasure of reading the earlier stories, making it possible to read it as a standalone – mind you, I suspect it will tempt to you to read the earlier stories, too. The strong partnerships between the K-9 characters and their handlers, their formidable skill set and mutual loyalty are evident throughout this story. I enjoyed how King gradually accepted Jason although Jason remained understandably wary of King when Arin wasn’t present.
This is an action packed, superb addition to this enthralling series and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it and the earlier books. I can’t wait to read more in this series and other books from this talented author.
#OwnVoices romantic suspense…
K9 handler Arin Siri doesn’t like taking orders, and she works best when it’s just her and her dog King out in the field. But when she discovers a wounded soldier of fortune during a Search and Protect mission, she has no choice but to get him to safety. The last time she and the roguish, sexy Jason Landon tangled, they were on opposite sides of the conflict, but this time, he’s claiming to need her help.
When Jason wakes up in a hospital on Hawaii’s Big Island, he’s shocked to discover Arin guarding him. She’s the last person he expected to see, but she’s also the only person who can help him bring down a kidnapping ring. As they draw closer to danger-and to each other-they must race against the clock to discover who the kidnappers are working for, or risk becoming collateral damage themselves.
