Summer Lovin' Tour: When I Found You (K-9 Trilogy) by Kate James + Giveaway (updated 7/22)

Title:  When I Found You
Series: The K-9 trilogy
Author: Kate James
Publisher:  Harlequin Heartwarming
Release Date:  June 21, 2016
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Is she part of the solution…or the problem? 
It could be a terrorist threat. Or is it some other sinister plot? An unprecedented rash of security breaches at San Diego's international airport is putting passengers at risk and bringing the competence of the airport's chief of security, Ariana Atkins, into question. With explosives the weapon of choice, police K-9 unit captain Logan O'Connor and his bomb detection dog, Boomer, might be Ariana's best, if not only, line of defense. Logan is certain his belief in Ariana, and his growing love for her, aren't misplaced…but it wouldn't be the first time he's misjudged someone's intentions.

When I Found You by Kate James is sweet, heartwarming, action filled and have you turning the page faster than you thought capable. Logan is a hero, with a sensitive side. How could he not since he's the dog man in the book! His connection with Boomer makes me want a dog. I'm more like Arianna, even though I do like dogs. Anyhow, lets get back to Logan and Arianna. Both are stubborn in their own right, and very good at their jobs. A great match in appearance and in personality, not to mention their undeniable spark from the moment they met. It goes beyond the physical attractiveness and I appreciate that.  The many twists and misunderstanding through out makes you want to whack the book on something, but then that means you'll need to close the book and do so. Nope, ain't happening. The story will keep you reading, despite your angst at times.  This being the third book in the K-9 trilogy, I'm happy to report you don't need to read the others to get right into When I Found You, though it might sway you to read the others for sure.  

How many of the Summer Lovin' books have you read or are planning to read? I'm looking forward to my next one for sure!

On a side note, a funny thing when I was reading When I Found You. My husband and I started discussing the cover and noticing the unfinished Photoshop areas.  Yes, how geeky are we?!

  5. I adore dogs! I would like to give this series to my grandmother - she really enjoys Christian fiction.

  6. I'm not personally a fan of dogs per say, but I love the idea of them! I always love seeing them in the books I read. In real life I have a harder time dealing with various doggie smells and messes ;)
