Locked-Down Heart (Combat Hearts #3) by Tarina Deaton
Denise Reynolds’s tightly controlled life is thrown off kilter when she’s given custody of her young cousins. If that wasn’t enough, Chris Nolton, an old flame, comes strolling back into town as suddenly as he left it.
He is leading the FBI Task Force intent on capturing the kids’ biological father, a gang member and is a dangerous man.
Chris and Denise have to rekindle their relationship and put their differences aside to help these kids who need them so much. They are lost souls because of the nature of their jobs and are trying to built a better life for themselves, specially Denise because of the children.
Denise helps as a therapist dog for PSTD soldiers and this is generous and brave way of dealing with her own shadows.
This is a great book with lots of actions, but still a sweet reunion of two people that are marked in life because of their job. Very well written and with adorable kids and dogs that will conquer you in the first chapter.
