I loved the dog fighting ring storyline. It was a change of pace from the sex slave or drug cartel storylines that seem to permeate books today.
The heroine was on the youngish side and certainly naive, but it worked for the story. And she's got pretty good aim with her Jimmy Choos.
Ian/Fitz was a good "bad guy", a great cop and I loved that his and Jessica's relationship actually developed over a few months even though their attraction to each other was instantaneous. The circumstances at the start of Falling in Danger lend itself to lots of sexual tension between them.
And Bruta...what can I saw about this big, scarred Pit-bull? I think had I been in Jessica's place I would have been terrified of him in the beginning but your heart can't help but feel for what he has to endure as a fighting dog. As a dog lover I couldn't help but cringe at his brutal treatment...I felt so sorry for him. I certainly grew to love him...you wouldn't be human if you didn't and I was so glad he got to show his true colors. In the end he was the true hero.
I will definitely be reading more from this author.
My only warning to dog lovers, is that some of the scenes are sad and the discussion of true events are even sadder. I teared up a few times and you will too, especially when you meet "Bruta". LOVED HIM!! Speaking of LOVED.....Detective Ian Cole...um.....HELLO!! Mr. Detective is undercover when we first meet him, working to break the "Dog Fighting Ring" case, when he gets stuck babysitting, Jessica Brady, whom the idiot father and son team, have kidnapped to try and get money from her father. Jessica is everything that he doesn't need at that moment, when he is so close to blowing the case wide open, but her sweet voice and curvy body set off a protective streak in him that even he doesn't recognize.
I don't want to tell you too much about the story since it just came out today, and I sincerely want you all to read Kaylie's New Release, especially all my DOG lovers....we need to help support the rescues!! But I will say, I really, really liked this book, I liked our heroine, Jessica, who is funny and spunky, and I already drooled....I mean told you about Ian Cole....even his name is HOT!! And "Bruta"...who seriously makes this book SPECIAL.....we all need a Bruta in out lives!!
So my recommendation to you is to PURCHASE this book!
The synopsis gives you a very clear explanation about the book so I will not reiterate that but I will tell you I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The book is very well written especially since it looks like this is only the second book by this author.
I love the male character, Ian, he has a strength about him that is written so clearly into the character it is hard not to fall for him. Jessica is great too, except I would have been happier to not have her on the verge of tears so often. I also enjoyed Bruta, the pit bull. The book is about dogfighting and the rescue of fighting dogs and Bruta is a poster child for these innocent victims. It breaks your heart to know that these dogs are out there forced into a life they do not want and yet the books celebrates the "parents" who rescue these dogs and rehabilitate them. The only thing is I wished the author had given us a little more of an epilogue/chapter 15. It felt a little abrupt of an ending when it comes to the couple and the dog even though, yes, it is a happy ending a little more detail would have been nice. But other than that this book is great and is not a story to be missed.
