About this ebook

When one door closes … second chances open another …

Ethan was lost after a major accident abruptly shifted him from a military life to a civilian one, from working with dogs to odd jobs … In that time, he’d spent months healing from his physical injuries. When he connects with Badger and the rest of his Titanium Corp. group of former SEALs, Badger offers Ethan an opportunity he can’t refuse. A chance to do the work he used to do … with a twist.

Cinnamon works from home as a project manager plus is heavily involved in global dog rescues—dogs of all kinds. When Ethan walks into the next door’s vet’s office with an injured shepherd in his arms, she sees another lost soul—just like the canine ones she helps.

Ethan knows he’s about to take a dangerous step, but he’s on the job, and no one—on the job or not—hurts animals while he’s around. This poor shepherd has taken enough abuse, and Ethan fears she is only the tip of a nightmare he’s determined to uncover. But he knows she’s going to lead him in the right direction. 

He has his sights set on saving one dog in particular, Sentry: K9 File 01.

I knew going into this that the dogs would touch my heart, they have already been through so much. Their training is tough, and for those who have served in military they have also seen and suffered much just with that. Many have lost their training partners, been shipped home and virtually forgotten. Ending up with people who don't care about them or only in as what those dogs can do for them. Ethan cares, it shows in everything he does and how he treats them, also in how they respond to him. Cinn loves dogs as well so this is a match made in heaven, they just have to go through some pretty nasty stuff to get there. Suspenseful and action packed story that is equal parts human and dog, there is some violence and some tense moments to keep you on edge. Mostly this is about relationships, human and canine, trust and love as well as training and commands, it is a learning curve for all but so worth it all in the end. Loving this new series that is an extension of the previous ones, taking the security business along another route, still linking with Badger, Levi, Flynn and the others which is great. To see these all helping each other as needed and cropping up in all the various series means continuation of the original stories I fell in love with. This has a fast pace and an originality of plot that is interesting and a bit edgy, I loved getting lost in reading it and learning more about these dogs who help keep us all safe in their respective careers.

This new series (which is an offshoot of other wonderful Navy Seals stories written by Dale Mayer) starts with Ethan agreeing to try and find a lost K9 named Sentry. Ethan started his search not realizing he would come up against ruthless men in a drug operation and he would endanger Cinnamon his new friend as well. In the process of finding Sentry, Ethan did not only meet a new friend but also reunited with old friends. The book moves quickly enough that I couldn't put it down. I was a bit concerned about starting a book with dogs as they can easily pull at my heartstrings but this story is well done and I'm really looking forward to the next in the series which is about Pierce and another search for a missing K9.

An awesome book in a new series and even got to see some of our favourite characters from other books that Dale writes. Ethan is damaged after getting injured and his trained dog killed. He doesn’t know where he fits in until he is given the task of finding Sentey K9-01. Cinnamon has her dogs, her house with land and her jobs of rescuing dogs from around the world and her day job. As Ethan finds a dog and chases down a lead bad guys target Cinn for the dogs. As her life in on the line it’s down to Ethan and two rescue dogs to do some damages control. A fabulous book that i read in one sitting. Can’t wait for more.
