So I first tried the True Heroes series with book three, Absolute Trust and I soon learned that I needed to read this series in order, so I set down Absolute Trust and request from my library the first book Extreme Honor.
Extreme Honor is a light and easy romantic suspense read. I had an ok time reading. It was a little bland, but enjoyable enough. I did have some trouble getting into the story; because it’s slow to get going, but once you hit 60% things start to pick up.
The suspense was predictable and of course not completely resolved by the end. Some threads where left open to carry on into the next book. And, the romance did have some heat with a little tension, but I never felt that the couple connected.
My main issue with this one and where I had trouble was the dog training. Why? Well I’m a fan of D.D. Ayres K-9 Rescue series and that women knows her dog breeds and the training that goes into military dogs, police dogs, and well all the different types of work a dog can do. I didn’t feel that Piper J. Drake did much research on the different areas, that she didn’t understood dogs; let alone working dogs, and I never felt that her characters connected to the dogs they worked with. It was disappointing.
Extreme Honor was meh and enjoyable enough to read. I will say I’m intrigued to check out the next book Ultimate Courage just from the except that I read at the end of Extreme Honor.
Rated: 2.5/3 Stars
