Is she part of the solution…or the problem?

It could be a terrorist threat. Or is it some other sinister plot? An unprecedented rash of security breaches at San Diego's international airport is putting passengers at risk and bringing the competence of the airport's chief of security, Ariana Atkins, into question. With explosives the weapon of choice, police K-9 unit captain Logan O'Connor and his bomb detection dog, Boomer, might be Ariana's best, if not only, line of defense. Logan is certain his belief in Ariana, and his growing love for her, aren't misplaced…but it wouldn't be the first time he's misjudged someone's intentions.

I GIVE THIS BOOK:1 star1 star1 star1 star


MY THOUGHTS:

When I Found You was the first book I've read by this author, and even though it's the third book in the series it definitely stands on its own. I could tell that certain people were the main characters in the previous books, but that just made me want to read their stories and I think if you've read those books you'll love seeing them in this book.

The romance was sweet and I loved watching the relationship between Ariana and Logan develop. There were some very funny scenes that happened because of misunderstandings, but I do think a lot of the strife Ariana and Logan had could've been avoided if they would've spoken more and assumed less. Still, it was believable that things happened the way they did, because many times people try to avoid confronting people on things.

The mystery part, why the airport was being targeted, was kind of predictable to me. I figured that out rather quickly, so found it boring that it took them so long to figure out why. 

I love dogs and loved the K9 aspect to this story. It was interesting learning why Ariana felt the way she did towards dogs, I was very curious why and once explained I completely understood it, but I loved that she stilled cared about them.

This story was definitely a fun and fast read. I recommend it to any fan of contemporary romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
