Book review: Called to Protect by Lynette Eason

About the Book:

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 fiancé 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?

Bestselling author Lynette Eason warns readers to buckle in for a fast and furious ride that will have their hearts pumping from the very start.

My Review:

Author Lynette Eason got my attention during the first line of the second Blue Justice novel, and didn't let it go until the end.  With a can't-put-it-down plot and well-developed characters, this was a great read!

Men and women who enjoy police drama and suspense will certainly enjoy this book.  The romance takes a back seat to the investigation, action, and suspense throughout the book.  While the bad guys are really bad, and the premise involves human trafficking, Eason manages to keep it clean and readable.  The story focuses on Chloe St. John, sister of Izzy from Book One, but this reads well as a stand-alone.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Revell, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
