Jori Garrison trains dogs for Warrior Wolf Pack, which provides service animals for disabled veterans. Four years ago, she was wrongly convicted of a crime—thanks to her no-good ex-fiancé. Now she just wants to live her life in peace with her beloved dogs. No men, no complications. But it’s hard to play it cool when a lethally hot male is on her tail—and the attraction is fierce, mutual, and dangerous…
Lauray "Law" Batisse is a Military Police veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. Haunted by the loss of his K-9 partner in combat, he’s reluctant to accept a service dog named Samantha into his life. But once he meets her trainer—the gorgeous Jori Garrison—he can’t fight his primal instincts. And neither can Jori. This sexy alpha male might be the only man strong enough to unleash her desires. And when unseen enemies start hunting them down, he and his new K-9 partner might be her only hope… to survive.
Jori Garrison has recently left prison having been wrongfully convicted of the crime of drugs pushing. She knows she's innocent, but just can't quite bring herself to go back to her old life. Jori has worked hard to become a dog trainer and now helps match up wounded veterans with suitable canine companions but there's one guy in particular who just doesn't seem to want to fit! Problem is, there's just something about Law Batisse that awakens Jori's need to scratch an itch and it looks like he's onboard with that but is once ever going to be enough?
Law lost more than his leg in Afghanistan; he lost his beloved K9 partner. Now they want to pair him up with a fluffy doodle named Samantha! So not happening but if Law is to get his job back as a State Trooper, he has to bite the proverbial bullet. So okay, he can do this and a week’s one to one training with the tempting Jori might just solve more than one of his problems. Then something strange comes to light and it's clear what happened to Law in Afghanistan and Jori's imprisonment share a connection; but it's not one that others ever want to be revealed.
Ms Ayres has surpassed herself with this story and I cannot express just how much I truly enjoyed it. Yes, there's a hunk of an alpha type as a hero but our heroine has so much going for her too. Jori may be down but she's not out and she's not afraid to live and love. The relationship and romance aside and we still have a really interesting story and it was fun crossing the t's and joining the dots as everything begins to unravel. Corruption, danger, and some truly nasty people who deserve all they get. Best of all? Samantha! Yes, that dog stole my heart and the author even occasionally gave us Samantha's point of view which was both funny and sweet. Clearly a lot of background research has gone into Primal Force and if you are searching for an entertaining standalone book then this could be your next read.
