She's bringing his son home

A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans's son safely home is more than a job. It's a mission she can't fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…

Sawyer Evans is camping with his sister, parents and 4-year-old son, Dylan, when he wakes up to find him missing. Shannon Clemens is a San Diego K-9 officer who tries to find him, along with her police-service dog, Darwin. Emotions are high for both of them as Sawyer is anxious to get Dylan back and Shannon works relentlessly to produce a positive outcome while dealing with a deep personal loss. Shannon and Sawyer are both likable characters and became closer as they dealt with the stressful situation they were in. Their relationship had its ups and downs and I wasn't sure how things would work out for them.

Kate James is one of my favorite authors! This book is a great addition to her San Diego K-9 series. It wasn't easy to figure out who took Dylan and what their motive was. I enjoyed the mystery aspect, as well as the sweet romance. I also loved catching up with characters we've met in other books and getting a glimpse of what they're currently doing. Each of the books stand well on their own, but it's definitely more fun to read them all! This is a great series for anyone that enjoys clean, contemporary romance!
