Happy Saturday y’all! I spent all evening yesterday reading Serve ‘N’ Protect (thrilling Friday night, I know haha) and man y’all, what a fun book! Thank you so much to Entangled Amara and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book! This book comes out on September 20th, so make sure you go grab it then!
Serve ‘N’ Protect 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
Ambushed and left for dead, U.S. Secret Service K-9 Officer Markus York is on the mend and laying low in a safe house while his team tracks down his attacker. But Markus isn’t good at sitting still. Even with his K-9, Ghost, for company, he gets restless and decides now is the perfect time to do some repairs around the house…and inadvertently tears open his wounds.
Fresh out of a bad relationship that ended after a car accident left her with limited mobility, freelance accountant Cassidy Morgan has sworn off men. At least, that’s the plan. Until a frantically barking dog leads her to a neighbor’s house where she finds a mysterious man out cold and bleeding on the floor…and mumbling things like “no, they’ll find me” when she tries to call an ambulance.
Yeah, that’s not at all concerning.
Despite Markus’s surly attitude, Cassidy senses there’s something else at work beneath his rugged, keep-your-distance exterior. Whatever it is, it’s sexy as hell.
With someone still trying to kill him, Markus doesn’t want an innocent to get hurt, let alone take care of him.
If only his dog wasn’t crazy in love with her.
If only the chemistry between Markus and Cassidy didn’t explode whenever they were in the same room.
If only Cassidy wasn’t a target now, too.
This book was so fun and cute! There was the perfect amount of action and to top it all off, a dog! A well trained secret service dog! I’m all for it! I liked Cassidy and Markus together. Both of them have tragic backstories, but they were able to play off of them in such a ways that didn’t make them seem too tragic (just enough baggage to make them interesting). The plot moved at a really great pace and I was never bored. There were two separate plots going on at once, but they were done in such a great way that there was no confusion or anything. I also really loved Cassidy’s family and Markus’s friends- such great side characters. Overall, Serve ‘N’ Protect was a quick read that was super cute and I definitely recommend it for some light action filled romance!
