SOS Agency #2
As for the dialogue, it was well-written and a wonderful combination of intense and playful. The intense dialogue was due to the main characters back stories, especially how they coincide with the death of the hero's sister and Meg's work. It is also intense due to what Meg's husband is doing to her while she searches for the evidence she needs to put him away for what he's done to her. Certainly, this book took a number of twists and turns that left me wanting to discover more about the hero and heroine's pasts, what happened to the heroine's grandmother and why would someone want to hurt the hero's family. However, there were also some light-hearted moments that had me smiling, because the hero and heroine are good for each other. The heroine needs to realize that not all men are like her ex and that Cooper is a good guy that would go above and beyond to keep her safe. While the hero needs to realize that Meg would never put someone in danger and that what happened to his sister was not her fault.
Both the main characters were compelling and I loved the obstacles this couple had to face on their journey to happy ever after. Cooper had every right to hate Meg once he learned the truth about how her past ties in with his sister's death. But I was glad that he realized the truth of who was really to blame and helped the heroine to get justice for his sister's death and all police officers that could have lost their lives because of her soon-to-be ex-husband's greed. Cooper is loyal, hard-working and I liked how determined he was to protect Meg and his family. Because nothing is more important than family, and protecting those that are innocent and taking down those that are guilty. While the heroine, she's strong, brave, and I liked how determined she is to take down her soon-to-be ex after everything he's done to her. She's been through hell, and no woman should have to go through what she has. She's lucky that Cooper is on her side and I couldn't help but feel sorry for her after everything she learns about how far her husband and his associates have gone to. It was emotional blow after emotional blow for her.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story by Ms. Vanak, which encompassed a strong romance and fast-paced plot that entertained me from start to finish with its dialogue and wonderful characters. The way this story ended was a little scary from the heroine's point-of-view, but she was fortunate that she could protect herself long enough to learn some hard truths and for help to come to her rescue. Moreover, I liked how the secondary characters rallied around the heroine and helped her. I would recommend Shielded by the Cowboy Seal by Bonnie Vanak, if you enjoy romantic suspense or the sexy protector trope.
