FROM THE BACK COVER
SHE'LL HAE TO DRAW ON ALL OF HER RESOURCES TO CRACK THE CASE--AND GUARD HER HEART.
After being dumped by her fiance, Chloe St. John has decided that the only male she likes is her K-9 German shepherd partner, Hank. But being over the whole romance thing has perks--like giving full attention to her job. Attention she's definitely going to need because a case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.
Deputy US Marshall Blake MacCallum is in a race against the clock to rescue his kidnapped daughter when Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man. But can she trust him? And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?
Buckle in. This fast and furious ride will have your heart pumping from the very start.
I am a huge fan of Lynette Eason so I just had to read her newest book, Called to Protect, which is the second book in her "Blue Justice" series. While it is second in a series it reads quite well as a stand-alone book.
While the subject matter of Called to Protect is detestable to me, unfortunately, it is something that is all too real in today's world. The subject matter is human trafficking and I must say that Ms. Eason deals well with the subject matter and created some very detestable characters.
The series centers around the St. John family who are all involved with the law in some way. This book highlights Officer Chloe St. John and her K-9 partner Hank, as well as, Deputy US Marshall Blake McCallum. Both have a loved one that has been abducted as part of a local trafficking ring causing them to eventually work together to bring the traffickers to justice. I will say that this story is extremely fast-paced and will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.
Both Chloe and Blake have issues in their past that cause them both to have issues in the area of trusting others. Can they overcome their trust issues to push forward and have a relationship with each other? Will they be able to break the trafficking ring? Those answers you will find between the covers of this extremely well-written book. If you love a good suspense novel with a little romance this is definitely a book you should pick up.
On a 5-Star Scale - 5 Stars!!!!!
I would like to thank Revell, a Division of Baker Publishing Group, for my copy of Called to Protect. I received my copy for free with no expectation of a positive review.
