LOVE IS THE GREATEST RISK OF ALL
After multiple tours of duty, Brandon Forte returns to his hometown on a personal mission: to open a facility for military service dogs like Haydn, a German shepherd who's seen his share of combat and loss. It also brings him back to Sophie Kim, a beacon of light in his life . . . and the one woman he can't have. But Forte's success means he's made enemies in high places. Enemies who are now after Sophie . . .
When Forte enlisted and left without saying goodbye, Sophie did her best to move on. But with her first love back in town, looking sexier than ever, she's constantly reminded of what they could have had. Then after he risks himself for her, Sophie realizes she'll have to put her life in the hands of the man who broke her heart, knowing the danger -and the sparks between them- could consume them both.
I received a copy of Absolute Trust from the Publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This was the first book that I read by Piper Drake and the first that I read in the True Heroes series. I really enjoyed these books because as we know I like books with more than just romance which this one delivered. This book had a great mix of romance, mystery and suspense.
In addition to the writing style I really enjoyed the story that Piper wrote with Sophie and Brandon. I think that she did a really great job developing the characters and building their relationship from when they were in high school to present day. Another aspect about Sophie and Brandon's story was to see how their relationship grew through the turn of events in the book. You were really able to see how much they loved each other and how it was more than just about romance.
Lastly, my favorite part of the book just like in Ultimate Courage was the dogs. I am a sucker for anything about dogs so when they played a key role in this book it was hook, line and sinker.
Can't wait to read more from Piper Drake and to see what characters she has in store for more of her books.
