Nick needs a partner and instead of a person..... he gets Harley, a German shepherd who had been difficult to place. Jamie Chambers runs the Woof Gang training school, and Nick is instantly taken by her. She is a young widow who will never love again after her dead husband. Nick had a bad experience with marriage and never wants to be that vulnerable again. She suggests a "friends with benefits" arrangement and he goes along. He finds that he wants more and eventually, Jamie kicks him to the curb.
There's more to the romance and more to the cop story, too. What will endear you is what goes wrong for Nick in this story. He doesn't come off as a hero for most of the story; he comes off as snakebit. He redeems himself, though. Good one with an HEA.
Nick, as part of his quasi-punishment, is assigned a new partner in the form of Harley. Harley is a German Shepard trained by Jamie to sniff out drugs. A good portion of the book is about Nick and Harley as they ferret out the bad guys who are selling a new synthetic drug that's killing college students in Austin. Their interaction made me laugh out loud and warmed my heart. The other part of the book is about the growing relationship between Jamie and Nick. The reason I didn't completely buy into Jamie is because this very smart, gifted and beautiful woman could not make up her mind about Nick to save her soul. It was exhausting trying to guess if she would grab onto Nick with both hands and realize what a good man he was, or if she would live in fear that a bad event from her past would repeat itself. In the end, she came to her senses but not until she put me--and Nick--through the emotional wringer.
Lots of good here. The bedroom scenes are frequent, steamy and well written. Our hero has a sensitive side. Grammy, Gina, Jared, the twins and other supporting characters added to the story and were more than just props to Jamie and Nick. The synthetic drug story was quite interesting. While this wasn't my favorite from this author, I enjoyed it and hope that this becomes a series like Denver was. I'd definitely recommend it as a good read, rather than a great one. And sometimes that's all you need.
