ARC REVIEW After Love by Kathy Clark
Nick was introduced in the last book of the Denver Heroes series and ever since then he has had rotten luck. His boss has had enough and is making him get a new partner, not just any partner but a K-9. Knowing this is the only way he can keep his job he hesitantly accepts. Jaime is the best service dog trainer around, she works with Nick and Harley together so they can be a functional working unit. Having a K-9 for a partner is a lot more work than Nick expected but the quality time Nick spends with Harley the more the bond grows between them. Their is an instant attraction between Nick and Jaime but Jaime is only open to a sexual relationship, normally that would be what Nick would want but he feels a certain kinship with her and for the first time since his wife broke his heart Nick has wanted more. But he goes along with it hoping to eventually change her mind. Jaime becomes scared of how she feels and pushes him away. The case Nick is working one intercedes and things quickly escalate. Trying to find the person or people behind a synthetic marijuana that has so far killed several college student, Nick has to go undercover to track the distributor before anymore are killed. When the shit hits the fan Nick is targeted personally.
Overall, I loved the story the characters and especially Harley. I look forward to the rest of the series.
