I'm not sure who I liked more...James or his K-9 partner, Bogart. No matter as they both kept me in the story.
A bit of background
It starts right off at full speed when Officer James Cannon tracks his "stolen" partner near an isolated cabin in the woods of North Carolina. Bogart's with Shay Appleton and the showdown between the three isn't pretty.
Once they figure out each other's situation, James gets Bogart back but not before he realizes that Shay seemed t ...more
Irresistible Force is the first book in the romantic suspense K-9 Rescue series by D.D Ayres and is told through the dual POV of both characters. There was a novella (0.5) released before this book, Necessary Force, but I didn’t read it and don’t feel like I missed out on anything. Both stories can be considered stand-alone books. The second book in the series, Force of Attraction, is expected to be released in the Spring of 2015.
A misunderstanding is what brings the two main characters in this ...more

The plot was good, original and fast paced. Both the Hero, James, and the heroine, Shay, are dealing with unpleasant ex's that are plotting against them.
The character James and his dog are well developed and reading about their work and training as a police K-9 team was interesting. James was a well rounded, likable character and he was believable. The ...more
Setting that aside Irresistible Force is a halfway decent Romantic Suspense. It's a debut so a little rough around the edges but overall entertaining and engaging. Its main weakness is there was just too much going on. It was kind of like Spiderman 3 in that sense....way too many bad gu ...more

I liked the book but a few things bugged me. I hate to get into them because I hate to give spoilers but they mostly involved the exes. The romance which was more a lust thing in my opinion came quickly. I will more than likely try this author again. I didn't dislike the book ...more

Determined to get away from an abusive ex, Shay Appleton is thrilled when an incredible stray is brought into the animal shelter where she volunteers.

Irresistible Force is the first full novel in the K-9 Rescue series. I really enjoyed its predecessor Necessary Force, even though a novella, it was well written with likeable characters and the well developed plot.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite as enamoured with this book. The storyline was one I have read many times in its various forms, just with the addition of a dog in the mix. It was pretty easy to work out that not one but two sepa ...more

Irresistible Force by D.D. Ayres was a wild ride. A supposed dog-napping of a K9 Unit dog brought James and Shay together. James may be trying to be a stick by the book kind of cop and Shay may be weary of law enforcement, but they definitely couldn’t deny their chemistry and mutual love for Bogart, the K9 Unit dog.
The chemistry between the two was definitely h ...more
Officer James Cannon is missing his cop partner, Bogart. He tracks him down to Shay's house. Not knowing how she got his dog in the first place, he proceeds with caution.
The first meeting of these two was electric. They are both upset and fighting to keep Bogart.

Well let's be honest, it's the cover that drew me in at first. Hot half naked guy + cute dog = winner! Then reading that synopsis, I knew I needed to get my hands on this book and it did not disappoint at all.
There were a lot of things that took me by surprise and plenty of original twists. Weird ex-boyfriend with stalking tendencies isn't a first, but if you couple that with Shay's past and the drama that James unintentionally brings to her front door, it makes for one hell of a ride.
The characters in this story were one of a kind. The male lead, a steamy alpha cop with a dog, was priceless. He didn’t necessarily have every ...more
Shay has a past that few could move forward from. She finally feels safe when she meets her Prince Charming, the dog she adopted one month ago. Until then she did not feel safe from her ex. James is on a mission to find his K9 partner who was abducted. He will push the limits of the law and his personal ethics to bring Bogart back safely.
I am not sure how Shay got up in the morning. Her past is so unspeakable that I am shocked she was a functioning adult. There were small glimpses at the ...more

Romantic suspense is in desperate need of some fresh ideas, and I guess a K-9 unit would do the trick!
A new-to-me author, I didn’t know what to expect, but I requested the book for review because it’s a genre I want to read more of.
There was a lot to like here, and there were also some of the problems I see pop up time and time again in these books. However, the author held my attention better than many who write books like these, and while the poor heroine seriously cou ...more
