K-9 Trilogy #3

Is she part of the solution…or the problem?

It could be a terrorist threat. Or is it some other sinister plot? An unprecedented rash of security breaches at San Diego's international airport is putting passengers at risk and bringing the competence of the airport's chief of security, Ariana Atkins, into question. With explosives the weapon of choice, police K-9 unit captain Logan O'Connor and his bomb detection dog, Boomer, might be Ariana's best, if not only, line of defense. Logan is certain his belief in Ariana, and his growing love for her, aren't misplaced…but it wouldn't be the first time he's misjudged someone's intentions.


My Thoughts

When I Found You is a wonderful story with the airport as the main setting. I have been in love with airports across the world since I was small, so this story is totally a must read. And I have to say that it doesn't disappoint. The story was wonderfully written with the right amount of suspense and action. This book is much better than the previous one and Ariana Atkins become my personal favorite heroine.

Ariana would never thought that the incident of two drunk girls would forever change her life. When she met Logan O'Connor, she was not prepared for his charm and his kind nature. 
Logan O'Connor was pleasantly surprised that the airport's chief security was a very beautiful and tough woman. She intrigued him from the very beginning but he didn't like the hassle of relationship and one of the reasons is his sister just experienced heart break. But when she refused him, he knows that he won't let her go. When there were bomb threats directed to Ariana, Logan immediately jumped into action with his dog, Boomer to track the bombs and find out if it was real or a prank. 

My favorite scene for this book was when Logan and Ariana hanged out and Rick Vasquez was there. At that time, Logan and Ariana were playing a game of reading people. Unbeknown to her, she was reading Rick, Logan’s close friend. It was fun to read about the characters from the previous book. In this part, I also get to know more about their awesome reading people skills. 
Fortunately, Logan saw her perseverance, dedication and intelligence and knew that she was really good in her job. He believed in her despite the event that came afterwards put her into the list of suspects. I’m impressed with him because he trusted her from the beginning. He never gave up on her. He’s the book boyfriend readers often dream about. He’s dependable, strong, loyal, and a great leader. 

This couple is one of my favorite.  They complemented each other perfectly. To see that Ariana was trying to conquer her fear to move on and to try getting to know Boomer was one thing that shows how serious they are. 

And again, we are reminded that these cops have dogs that are a part of them, a part of their life, and a part of their family. It was an emotional aspect of this K-9 series. I can feel them and their love for their canine partner. Logan ‘Jagger’ and Boomer were inseparable. 
It was also interesting to know how the airport’s security system works too and the people that were involved in it. When their problems turn out to be way more than I expected and I’m completely mind-blown. 
Love this book!

I really recommend this book for anyone that loves a story that warms your heart.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
