Review: Called To Protect by Lynette Eason

"For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiancZ for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.
When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?"

This book reminded me in a lot of ways of one of my favorite books by Lynette Eason, Too Close To Home. The same scary stuff is going down, but a little bit further away from my dorm. {Cue nervous laughter} While the subject matter is scary and awful, it makes for a can't-put-it-down type of book. I wish it was a little longer, but I can't wait to get ahold of Brady's story. This series is really good. I enjoyed the first book a lot. One of my favorite characters is Tabitha St. John, the mother, and I wish she had a bigger part in this book, but I take what I get huh ;) I liked that there was a good deal of the story coming from Rachel's perspective. We weren't left in the dark for too long about what was going down where she was concerned. I loved that Rachel and her dad worked through the difficulties and I really hope the Chloe marries him because they are pretty perfect. The whole book was just spine-tingling, and all the siblings got in the dialog somehow, which was nice. I can't wait to read more of the St John siblings. This may turn out to be my new favorite Eason series. Who knows? I would definitely highly recommend this book, but be warned, there is human trafficking involved. I guess the storyline struck a new chord this time because my cousin is foster mom to several girls that were rescued from trafficking. Oh, and if you like cute pooches, Hank is adorable. He makes me want to go get a dog right now. I especially liked the fact that Rachel has type 1 diabetes, because my friend Megan also has this. While Megan doesn't use a pod.... she has a pump or something. I can work it, I just can't remember what she calls it.... she does need her insulin and has problems with high blood sugar and stuff and that angle of the story just made it so much easier for me to get invested in the story. 5 STARS!!!

OH I almost forgot, but I was so proud of myself. I pegged the bad guy the first time I saw his name. Either she gave me slow pitch, or I've read enough of her books to be good at this!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
