The only thing more powerful than fear is desire...

A seasoned K-9 officer with the police in Maryland, Cole Jamison has left her old life behind her. With a new home and a new partner-a protective canine named Hugo-Cole is ready for fresh challenges. A crucial position on an important drug task force is exactly what she wants...until she discovers her gorgeous, infuriating ex-husband will be the DEA agent in charge.


Agent Scott Lucca may be a pro when it comes to undercover assignments, but this job is daunting even for him. Posing as a happy couple on the dog competition circuit means he and Cole need to get a lot closer than they've been in years. Playing a live-in couple should seem like a walk in the park compared to tracking a brutal criminal, but suddenly nothing could be more dangerous than the passionate fire they've rekindled...


This novel can be read as a stand-a-lone.

I have come to really love the K-9’s in this series. You can tell that the author knows her dog breeds and has done her research on training, showing, and all things related to K-9’s. This in-depth and accurate portray just adds to my enjoyment.

Force of Attraction is book two in the K-9 Rescue series by D.D. Ayres.

Cole and Scott have a serious past. They walked away from each other instead of working things out. Now they are partnered up together to work an undercover assignment, but Scott’s past and undercover work is coming back. The past is far from buried; between these two.

A second chance romance with a little mystery and intrigue throughout the story. We are whisking into a world of drug trafficking, the dog agility circuit, bikers, and undercover police work. Add in our 4 main characters, Hugo and Izzy, Cole and Scott’s police dogs and you have a delightful read.

I will say Hugo stole the show for me. I just love Hugo and Izzy, the K-9’s.

I did had some issues with a few things in Force of Attraction,but I still ended up enjoying the novel. For one I didn’t care for the first sex scene. She was getting into character and being the character when she had sex with Scott and he went along with it. These two needed to get everything out in the open, before they got intimate with each other. I felt they didn’t need to have that much intimacies to pull things off and they weren’t ready to go their, at least in my eyes. They had to much to discuss and resolve from the past first. I also wasn’t fully on board with the undercover angel in this novel. They can be a couple, but not have to get as intimate as they did. It all comes down to them not getting it all out there; before they stared their undercover work.

Force of Attraction was entertaining and enjoyable. All in all, I enjoyed this book. This series is engaging and fascinating. I recommend picking up the K-9 Rescue series.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. I really love the dogs in this series, too! They’re so interesting. I haven’t read this one yet. It’s on my list, though 🙂

    • The dogs steal the show. I think. I’m really delighted with this series. Still have a few more to read before I’m caught up. ^_^

  2. oh I hate it when the sex scenes don’t fit right, especially with the story and the tone of the romance. I have heard some great things about these books though.

    • With series books their is bound to be a few that just don’t work out as you would hope. This one is my least favorite in the series. I’ve had such a wonderful time reading the K-9 Rescue series. I do recommend it!

  3. I have the first book in this series on audio, but I haven’t tried it yet. I really do need to try it. I would highly recommend Katie Ruggle’s new series, Rocky Mountain K9 Unit. I think it is similar. I really enjoyed the first book (and the previous series Search & Rescue).

    • I have both the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit and Search & Rescue series on my TBR. I plan to give them a try one of these day’s. Thank’s for the recommendation!

  4. I’m keeping my eye on this series. Sounds fun. I’ll probably grab the first book and see how it goes.

    • The third “Primal Force.” is my favorite in the series. We get the K9’s perspective as well as our leads (hero/heroine). All of them can be read as standalone except Rival Forces book 4, but if you prefer to read in order, like me, then that’s great too. The only comping thing is the Kennels most go to train at. Hope you enjoy!

  5. I was curious about book 1 when I heard about it so maybe one day!

    • I’ve uptown book 4 in this series so far. Primal Force is my favorite. I really liked book one Irresistible Force. It was and is a strong start for a series. This one Force of Attraction has been my least favorite. I just didn’t like the undercover and how the leads handled their issues. This is a series I’d recommend. Hope you enjoy when you get around to trying it.

  6. I read one book in this series and it was just kind of meh for me. I have been hesitant to pick up any other book in the series because of it. But I love books with dogs!

    • This series captured me so well; because the author knows dogs and what goes into training. It’s in-depth and well the actually humans come second for me. The dogs steal the show. My favorite in this series so far is Primal Force. We actually get the dogs perspective not just the humans and it was wonderful done. This one Force of Attraction is my least favorite.
      Thank’s for stopping in Samantha and checking out my review.

  7. Love this series too! Great review and yeah the k-9s are the best

    • Debbie Welcome! I’m have a lot of fun with this series. I only have a few more to go then I’m caught up. The K-9’s are the best part. Thank’s for stopping in and checking out my review. Have a great week!
