Passion is always worth fighting for…

Jori Garrison trains dogs for Warrior Wolf Pack, which provides service animals for disabled veterans. Four years ago, she was wrongly convicted of a crime—thanks to her no-good ex-fiancé. Now she just wants to live her life in peace with her beloved dogs. No men, no complications. But it’s hard to play it cool when a lethally hot male is on her tail—and the attraction is fierce, mutual, and dangerous…


Lauray "Law" Batisse is a Military Police veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. Haunted by the loss of his K-9 partner in combat, he’s reluctant to accept a service dog named Samantha into his life. But once he meets her trainer—the gorgeous Jori Garrison—he can’t fight his primal instincts. And neither can Jori. This sexy alpha male might be the only man strong enough to unleash her desires. And when unseen enemies start hunting them down, he and his new K-9 partner might be her only hope… to survive.


A few notes before we get started:

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

I love that the cover is true to the book. The covers so far for the K-9 Rescue series have fit the books perfectly. The dogs that are featured on the covers, are the pets in the story.

The K-9 Rescue series has fast become a favorite of mine. The author highlights the different ways that service dogs play a integral part in service to our country. You can tell that the author has done her research on the different ways to train service dogs for all types of jobs. This in-depth and accurate portray just adds to my enjoyment.

Primal Force is book three in the K-9 Rescue series by D.D. Ayres.

This is my favorite so far in the series. I love the romance, drama, suspense, & the K-9. It was brilliant to give the reader the K-9, Samantha’s, perspective in this novel along with Jori and Law’s. Getting the K-9’s POV was marvelous; because it added a whole new dimension to the story. Law and Jori where a wonderful couple to fall in love with. I liked them both from the start and couldn’t help, but get caught up in their hot steamy romance as well as everything else that was going on. The danger and excitement just added to the story and relationship building between our couple.

Primal Force had me laughing and crying. I was captivated from the first page and had a delightful time reading. This series is engaging and fascinating. I recommend picking up the K-9 Rescue series.

Rated: 4.5 Stars

    • Ya, It’s wonderful to have the cover mesh with the story. I really like it when they do. Thank’s for stopping in Debbie.

  2. Anything that has you crying and laughing is always good. It’s also
    Cool that dogs play a big part in the series, adds some flavor to the “usual”.

    Happy weekend!
