Visa GC Giveaway and Review of 'Bound by Duty' - Military K-9 Unit #2 - by Valerie Hansen
About the book:
Assignment: Single Mom Surveillance
The Military K-9 Unit series continues
Her serial killer brother’s escaped—and it’s single mom Zoe Sullivan who’s under suspicion! Sgt. Linc Colson trusts two things: his instincts and his Rottweiler K-9 partner, Star—and certainly not the pretty face he’s assigned to monitor. He’s done everything to keep her from getting under his skin—now he must stop those who want to put her six feet under.
I enjoyed this exciting suspenseful story and the mystery element there was to it, too. Strange things have been happening to Zoe and it's not clear if her brother's behind it or someone else entirely. There was some investigation in the story, which I like, along with the action and sweet romantic elements, of course. Zoe and Linc have two good reasons not to fall in love, they've both been burned in love before, so they fight their attraction for each other, and they're working together and their bosses wouldn't like it. They're continually thrown together for the case, though, and he comes to be the only one she's sure she can trust. Her little boy was very cute and Star was great. I love animals in stories; they bring such a great presence and it was especially fascinating to learn more about a military K-9 and how they operate. There's some talk of faith as Zoe is a strong Christian and Linc has turned his back on God after feeling like prayers weren't answered. I thought the ending seemed a bit rushed; Linc never seemed to confide in Zoe about past trauma and they didn't really discuss his newfound faith. This story mostly worked well as a stand-alone, however, there were a few things mentioned that must have happened in book one. I'd recommend it if you like suspenseful stories!
I received a copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated. This is my honest opinion.
