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 Review:

Ariana is the Chief of Security at the San Diego International Airport. She meets Logan, a police K-9 unit captain, during an incident involving two drunk women who make a bomb threat. There is an instant physical attraction between them but neither of them are ready to act on that. Breaches in the airport's security keep Logan coming back and the two of them need to work together to figure out what's going on. Their attraction grows but there are obstacles in the way of them pursuing a relationship.

I loved both Logan and Ariana! Ariana worked hard to get where she was. She also has some fears and insecurities: she's nervous around Logan's dog, Boomer, and he is determined to get to the bottom of that. She overhears a conversation which leads her to believe Logan has a girlfriend so she's confused by the signals he sends her. Logan is a competent, loyal, handsome and happily single man. He's in danger of losing his heart to Ariana and is more open to a relationship but he has some concerns. He's kind and generous to his sister who is having some problems. And he's super easy to fall in love with!

I loved the unique setting of an airport. The breaches that were happening were realistic. I figured part of it out but there were twists and turns along the way to learning the extent of what was happening. I love romantic suspense and this was a fantastic blend of both! I was hooked from the beginning, had a hard time putting it down, and was satisfied at the end! There were characters from the other books who make appearances. You don't have to read the other two to figure out what's going on, but if you have, it's fun to get updates on them. This was a fun series and I'm looking forward to reading what Ms. James comes up with next! 

My Rating=5 Stars
