Lost and Found series #2,5
Former Navy SEAL K9 Handler Joe Flynn doesn’t understand why every stray in Denver seems to head his way. After losing his Military War Dog in Afghanistan, he doesn’t want anything to do with animals. But he doesn’t mind seeing Willow take care of his charges. Lusciously rounded, she’s the best thing he’s experienced all year.
Veterinarian Willow James loves seeing Flynn walk her way, though he brings her some truly sad cases of animal neglect. He tries to keep his emotions locked away, but she’s learned to read him over the past year. When one of the animals he brings in decides to adopt him, she starts to see the thaw she’s been waiting for.
She’s ready to take on the sexy former SEAL with all his ghosts, but is he ready to let them go for her?
This book was not about military action, suspense, or the admirable brotherhood of SEALs.
What you get instead is nothing short of amazing.
We get more insightful look into PTSD, what triggers them, what the person who has it goes through, and how they try to handle it, survive with it, live a life with it.
At the same time the focus is put on a military dogs, they role in the war and battle, and the relationship they have with their handlers.
And on the other hand, what service dogs can do, and how they help a person, not to mention rescue dogs. A lot of K9 information put into this story in very interesting and caring way.
There is also a beautiful, passionate, romantic story that develops between the SEAL and the vet. Their coming together, finding each other, is a tender and warm story, that made me melt with it sweetness.
Just all around adorable story, four *.
