⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 When I Found You is suspense and intrigue from start to nail-biting finish….
When a succession of security breaches at the San Diego airport calls chief of security, Ariana Atkins, reputation as a capable, proficient, and adept security expert into question, K-9 unit captain Logan O’Connor and his explosives detection dog, Boomer, are on the scene to help with the investigations. There’s an instant chemistry between Logan and Ariana, one that cannot be ignored. Romance desperately tries to flourish while both are diligently trying to get to the bottom of a series of explosions at the airport that are risking innocent lives, including Ariana’s. Oddly, Ariana’s body language when in the presence of Boomer suggests fear or dislike for the incredibly obedient dog. Why is she afraid of dogs? Logan cares enough to find out about that and any other secrets she’s willing to confide. But when evidence begins to point in the direction of Ariana as a suspect in the unusual occurrences at the airport since her nearly one year tenure there, raising questions as to her true intentions, can Logan put his doubts aside and continue to pursue a relationship? Or will he have to walk away from the woman he’s come closest to falling in love with?
I really enjoyed this book. Kate James’s settings and scene descriptions are so visually stimulating. I felt as though I was at the airport, in amongst the loud roaring of airplane engines and SDPD personnel bustling about in pursuit of a perpetrator. I could picture Ariana’s self doubt and the resultant anxiety regarding the circumstances surrounding her, and the decisions she had to make. She could appear so outwardly strong in her position as chief of security, and yet vulnerable and uncertain in matters of the heart. She was a likeable character and easy to root for. Logan and Boomer were the perfect pair: brave, capable and determined. What’s not to love about a police dog and a handsome, rugged handler? These three were meant to be together, and I am hoping to hear more about their story in future books.
If you like to read about tense situations that raise your pulse, along with a bit of blossoming romance, you’re sure to love When I Found You. Very, very detailed and well written.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
