Book Review - Called To Protect


For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiancé for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.

When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?

Like all of Lynette Eason's books, this one was another exceptional read. It was rather difficult at times because the subject matter is about human trafficking. It really put me on edge at times but it was definitely worth reading.

It was fun reading about the St. John family again. They are such a great family and I enjoyed getting to know them again. This book definitely stands alone but the first book in the Blue Justice series, Oath of Honor, is well worth reading if you haven't yet. I really enjoyed that book, too!

This book focuses on Chloe and her K-9, Hank. I really loved reading about how the police officers work closely with their dogs and I fell in love with Hank and all he could do. I also enjoyed Blake, who has been friends with the St. John family for years but is now relying on them in a professional capacity as his daughter has been kidnapped. Blake is a U.S. Marshall and the bad guys who have taken his daughter are demanding something of him that is beyond the pale.

I loved the character of Rachel, Blake's daughter. She is so complex. She is strong yet so desperate to feel loved and worth-while at the same time. I really like how the author makes her such a real person as she struggles with what has happened to her. As I said, because this focuses on human trafficking, there are a lot of tense moments in the book where I just wasn't sure I could plod on with the story, but I'm so glad I did. Yes, the hard moments are hard, but it's well worth the read and it was an enjoyable read - just difficult in places.

The story has so many twists and turns and just when you think that things are going to be solved, something new happens and you're off and running again with the characters of the book. It's definitely a fast paced book! I really enjoyed this and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
