Absolute Trust is the first book I have had the chance to read by Piper J. Drake. I have to say she certainly captured my attention and had no problem holding it until the very end. This book has all the wonderful things that make for a fabulous read. There is drama, action, suspense, mystery, dogs, and romance. What more could a girl ask for in a book, I can't think of much because this was a really really great story.
Brandon Forte has been through a lot and seen a lot. How could you not completely fall for this guy. He's protective of those he cares about, is great with dogs, and has the experience and know how to kick the bad guys' rear ends.
Sophie Kim has loved Brandon for years. When he disappeared to join the military he broke her heart. Sophie is a good girl that finds herself in a horrible situation. She has what most would consider a very mundane job in accounting. When she takes off from work early one day things start to blow apart and I do mean blow apart quickly. When her car explodes with her near but safe in the protection of Haydn, a very smart and well trained dog from Hope's Crossing Kennels.
From there the danger is on and intense. Brandon and Sophie along with the rest of the crew from Hope's Crossing Kennels start to investigate what is going on and form a protection plan.
There is plenty going on in this book that kept me intrigued and flipping pages as quickly as possible. I could not wait to see what was going to happen next and how Sophie, Brandon and Haydn might get out of the next situation. I also could not wait to see what was behind everything that was going on. I must admit there were a few twists that I sure did not see coming.
This is the third book in the True Heroes series. I have not had the pleasure of reading the first two and found this book to stand on it's own just fine. After reading this marvelous suspenseful romance story I'm sure the first two are great reads as well. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on them to read sometime that's for sure.
I know I would certainly not hesitate to read more of Ms. Drake's work. She has writing style that makes for an enjoyable page turning read.
I was given the opportunity to read this great story and it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
