Summary

Honor, Loyalty, Love

David Cruz is good at two things: war and training dogs. The ex-soldier's toughest case is Atlas, a Belgian Malinois whose handler died in combat. Nobody at Hope's Crossing kennel can break through the animal's grief. That is, until dog whisperer Evelyn Jones walks into the facility...and into Atlas' heart. David hates to admit that the curvy blonde's mesmerizing effect isn't limited to canines. But when Lyn's work with Atlas puts her in danger, David will do anything to protect her.

Lyn realizes that David's own battle scars make him uniquely qualified for his job as a trainer. Tough as nails yet gentle when it counts, he's gotten closer to Atlas than anyone else - and he's willing to put his hardwired suspicion aside to let her do the same. But someone desperate enough to kill doesn't want Lyn working with Atlas. Now only teamwork, trust, and courage can save two troubled hearts and the dog who loves them both....

HEROS BOOK ONA

Would you consider the audio edition of Extreme Honor to be better than the print version?

I CANNOT SAY AS I HAVE ONLY AUDIO AND I FOUND THE CHARACTERS DRAW YOU INTO THE BOOK AND THE STORY COMES TO LIFE

What did you like best about this story?

ALL OF THE STORY TELLS YOU OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND DOG AND THE PROBLEMS THEY GO THROUGH

Have you listened to any of Daniel Thomas May’s other performances? How does this one compare?

DANIEL AND KRISTIN ARE GREAT IN BRINGING THE CHARACTERS TO LIFE AND WOULD LIKE TO HEAR THEM TELL MORE STORY'S

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

THERE IS ALWAYS A MOMENT IN THESE BOOKS THAT MAKES YOU CRY . IT MAKES THE BOOK BETTER FOR IT .

Any additional comments?

CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK 4

Dogs, Military Guy & Smart female - Perfect combo

For me the most troubling aspect was having 2 narrators--who would read the entire chapter--and all voices. Then the other narrator would read the next chapter--and all the voices. I think either one could have read the entire story and it wouldn't have been so jarring. Other than that, the narrators portrayed the male and female voices clearly.

I loved the story and look forward to reading more in this series.

David and Lyn had a rough first meeting but they came together for the sake of Atlas, the dog. They both are attracted to each other, but Lyn wants to keep their relationship on a professional level. David reluctantly agrees. But the attraction grows.

Lyn's relationship with her stepfather is "odd". She was very sympathetic to David's relationship with his family--but very negative and sharp with her stepfather. At times it was like she was baiting him or looking for something to be mad about.

I loved Atlas. What a great character. He is my favorite part of the story.

I believe PD could have worked Rojas & Forte into the story more--especially as they will be in future books. Thank heavens for that! I'm ready to read the next book!

Gute Hunde

Author not for me. 1st this is a romance series 2nd a mystery 3rd K-9. I wanted a stronger K-9 story. Male reader good with both make and female. Lady reader sounds like a greatly improved Sophie Eastlake.

I appreciated the story, but not the porn portions

Why an author chooses to wreck a good story with porn, is beyond me. I thought the story was engaging and kept me interested, however, when the porn portions started, I fast forwarded through the portions. I'd be interested in buying another book by this author, but don't want to pay for porn. I read the reviews on the book that follows this one, and found the same complaint in the reviews. No more of this author, for me.

Good story line, but...

Would've really enjoyed this book if not for the porn... I fast forwarded through that, but it lessened the experience of this book for me...I would love to go on to the next book in the series, BUT, I will have to weigh if the listen is worth it to me...

Just terrible

Any way you want to measure this, it is awful. They should have put a beautiful blond wrapped around this leg on cover. I can’t image anything that could be worst. Will demand a refund. JM

Finally a Hunky Guy with a Heart

So glad someone has written an entertaining romantic suspense featuring a smart, hunky guy who loves animals and appreciates a strong confident woman.

After experiencing the horrors of war, Cruz wanted a peaceful life training dogs with his friends. Enter Lyn, who was hired by the Army to assist in rehabilitating one of their military dogs (Atlas) who was traumatized by loosing his handler.

While Cruz and Lyn had professional differences in the beginning, Cruz always treated her with gentleness, respect and admiration. Cruz was not an alpha jerk or sexual bully; he had seen enough suffering to last a lifetime.

Likewise Lyn was kind, confident and spunky - not a submissive bimbo - who managed to use keep her cool even when confronted by unexpected violence. This was my first novel by Piper J. Drake but it won't be my last.

Minutes into Chapter 2 was ENOUGH !

Digusting.
I wanted a strong story of a woman that could work with military k-9's, a careful plot, involved teachings.
Not a whiney wimp and full blown crude men pornography scene.
Absolute failure and shows how talent is lacking.
I have some good k9 stories I found via Amazon, and as a woman that has actually dealt with handling & training
Working dogs, including police dogs, I will NEVER recommend this disgraceful attempt.

love Atlas

I am a dog lover and I have great respect for trainers and working dogs trained for the military. This book is a great story about such a dog who lost his handler. The story gets suspenseful by the minute as we follow David and Lyn's investigation to find out why is Atlas wanted so much by unsavoury characters. Atlas gets attached to Lyn the minute they meet and there is hope that he will recover from the loss. A few twists thrown in makes for an interesting listen. It ends up with a positive note with a HFN for David and Lyn and of course Atlas. First book from Ms. Drake and will check out the other books in the series for sure.
My first listen to the narrators and I really enjoyed their voices and variations for the characters. I will definitely check out their other audios.

Loved it!!

This is a new author for me, I’m so glad I gave this book a try. Well written with excellent character development. I listen to this book almost nonstop! I like when there are 2 narrators female reading female characters and male reading male characters

Flawed Story

This just doesn't make sense. (Hard to explain the flaws without spoiling it but I will try) Lynn pulled a favor to get put in a position to work with Atlas. But shortly after arriving her room is searched and she is attacked twice. What info could she possibly have when the person in charge of this operation and the one who put her in the position to work with Atlas is the person who facilitated her access - she hadn't even been on the job more than a few hours. And the attackers threaten to do harm to her knowing who her step dad is? It just doesn't make sense. There are other serious flaws in the logic of this story. Second I didn't find Lynn's character all that likable. She comes off at times as a bitch, pushy, (e.g. the first meeting, when Atlas is taken), immature (e.g. listening at the door, pouting that David isn't telling her everything ...). This is first and foremost a romance story so it doesn't have to make sense and if you approach the book this way you won't be as disappointed. If you want suspense, action and a strong heroine this isn't the book for you. If you want a strong heroine and action try the Pike Logan series with Jennifer Cahill by Brad Taylor. I also didn't find Kristin's narration all that strong but it might have been the material she had to work with.
