But his best lead—the beautiful owner of the Dog Park Café, Andi Hardt––is not cooperating. Doesn’t matter how sexy she is, or that his dog seems to be in love with her.

When I got the opportunity to review this second book in the Federal K-9 series, there was no doubt in my mind as to wether I should take this opportunity or not. So thank you so so much St. Martins press and Netgalley, for providing me with an arc copy!

I've read and LOVED the first book in the series, which I've read twice already, so I was really eager to get my hands on this second installment.

Review copy was received from Publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I loved the action and law enforcement work in the second book of the Federal K-9 series. The author has 23 years as a federal agent and it shows. Although, I hope some things are fictionalized because Andi was in significant danger. Why didn't she have a Kevlar vest and helmet even?  We met Nick briefly in Locked N Loaded wi

I love this series!

I couldn’t wait to dive into the latest in this series! Strong characters, suspense and action, and, of course, four-legged friends, proved once again to be a winning combination!

Andi and Nick’s first meeting included a healthy dose of action as well as embarrassment. It may not have been love but it was strong and sparked a rocky relationship. Rocky? If volcanos are little nuisances...

Nick looked at Andi with suspicion even as each glance included desire. Andi couldn’t help t

This book captivated me from the heartfelt dedication through every single page, I could not get enough of this story. Andi is staying at a friends house while the plumbing at her place is being repaired. She's in the wrong place at the wrong time when the state police led by Sgt Nick Houston, serve a warrant to search the house. Nick is pretty hostile during his initial meeting with Andi, who is in the shower in her bikini bathing her dog. Nick's K-9 partner is Saxon, responds to commands given ...more

I truly enjoyed this installment in the Federal K-9 series. Andi was easy to understand and know, making me like her from the start. I became invested in Nick immediately as well. I like that the author didn’t go too far into his closed off, determined nature, but rather lightly used that to help und

Nick, a sergeant for the Massachusetts state police, and his K-9 partner, Saxon, are after a major illegal gun dealer. They have a lead, she just isn't cooperating. And while Saxon may be in experiencing puppy love, and Nick himself can't deny the pull he feels to her, it does make their job even harder. Besides, she's a suspect and he will never cross that line, regardless of how badly he wants to with her.

Having thoroughly enjoyed reading the first book in this series, Lock 'N' Load, I wondered if this would be as great a read so I requested and was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it - and it definitely is another superb story! It proved to be an enthralling, suspense filled story and a real page turner that I definitely didn't want to put down until everything had been resolved!

The second book in the Federal K-9 series is an exciting and passionate read that catapults readers right into the danger alongside the strong, captivating characters. Nick and Andi has some deliciously sizzling chemistry that readers can practically feel flowing from the pages as the characters send sparks flying in every direction every time they come into contact whether in passion or heated clashes.

This second book in the Federal K=9 series is a fantastic, fast paced story with sexy cop Nick and his K=9 partner Saxon at the center. Nick and Saxon are hot on the trail of an illegal gun trader and they don't have time to deal with the uncooperative owner of the Dog Park Cafe. Andi Hart won't risk her new business for anyone or anything. Not even the very sexy officer Nick Houston. Problem is he holds all the cards and ultimately she has to help him with his investigation.

Armed N' Ready was a fantastic read. Nice consistent pacing; nothing felt too rushed or too drawn out. The romantic aspects of the story felt realistic and were very enjoyable to read about. The characters were fantastic and while dealing with their own trauma they also had some great character development.

I loved the bits of action in this story as well. I felt like they were well placed and not just there to push the characters together. Totally great story.

This book had everything to keep the reader interested! You had the suspense of what was going on and why the police barged in on Andi when she was bathing her dog. You had the undeniable attraction between Andi and Nick. You had Nick's heartbreaking past. And you had a side romance between some of the other characters.

I found it hard to put this book down and it's been awhile since I've felt that way!

A great second book in and tense and fab series. After getting over the set up (him forcing her to help with the investigation to get her life back) I enjoyed the story. Saxon and Stray are wonderful and the twist st the end completely unexpected.
I look forward to reading the next story in the series. Maybe it will be Eric...
Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled for the ARC.

Nick Houston is the next K9 handler in line for an unconventional romance!

Nick is part of a task force looking into the financial convolutions of an associate of Andi Hardt, He and the task force give Andi a bit of scare when they carry out a search of her Ex's home whilst she is only in a very small bikini! Saxon is a very good K9 partner and ndi and her dog has coralled efficiently.

But as the story progresses it becomes clear that Andi is innocent but she is still tangled up in the miss and sh

Another new author. Another romance I enjoyed.

Armed N' Ready definitely falls in the romantic suspense category, a sub-genre I haven't read in a while so I it was thrilling to go back and see two main characters falling in love while also trying to catch the bad guys.

The romance between the hero and heroine (Nicholas and Andi) was slow-burn, and done right (like Tee O' Fallon did) is a delight to read. I enjoyed knowing both hero and heroine individually and together, and I especially loved th

This is book 2 in the Federal K-9 series and can absolutely be read as a stand alone! I hadn't read book 1 before reading this one and understood everything happened in it with no problems. Sgt.

He is trying to help take down a gun trafficker but he doesn't feel like she is helping or cooperating with the investigation like they need her to do.

Another winner for Ms. O’Fallon in the Federal K-9 series. Andi Hardt, owner of the Dog Park Café, is washing her dog when police break in to the house where she is staying. Her friend, Joe, is out of town and offered her the use of his home due to plumbing issues in her home. Sgt.

Attention grabbing from page one! With the second book in her Federal K-9 series, Tee O'Fallon brings us another great story that keeps us on our toes throughout. The characters have a rich back story, the setting is exciting and the taboo attraction between them is powerfully compelling. Really enjoyed the story and look forward to more in the series!

I honestly really enjoyed this whole series. This book in particular I loved. I loved how the hero was so moody. I love the broken guys. I love reading about when the hero falls for the heroine. And I loved the hero's dog.

I really liked the heroine. She was fabulous. She wasn't winey or anything. I loved the scenes between the two main characters. I really enjoyed their banter back and forth.

The suspense was great. I love when a book is half and half. Half suspense and half romance. Sometimes i

O’Fallon gives readers a well-paced suspense story and I really enjoyed seeing how the case played out. I had no idea where it was going but it was totally believable – nothing came out of left field and felt unconnected to the rest of the story, which is always a plus for this kind of book.

Both characters were really fun and their interactions entertaining. It’s a bit of a slow burn as they have to deal with how she fits into his case, giving them plenty of time to get to know each other (and c

Tee O'Fallon hit another story out of the park. I rooted for both Nick and Andi to realize they were in love with each other. Both were morning prior relationships, and were not looking to start anything. Nick was investigating Andi friend for money laundering, and selling stolen guns on the black market. Nick was attempting to search the house for incriminating evidence, and finds Andi bathing Stray while wearing a very skimpy bikini in the shower. He keeps the other male officers away from the ...more

As with every other book by Tee O'Fallon I have read, this one is just amazing too! I loved Nick in all his alpha, overly controlled, protective mode with a tender side no one gets to see. The way he was drawn to Andi and she to him upon their first meeting was perfect. How he bulldozed his way into her everyday life to get more facts and information was pretty entertaining. But it allows Andi along with us readers an opportunity to really get to know Nick more. Thus made me like him even more. ...more

Suffice to say that I downloaded this book yesterday evening around half past eleven and finished it at half past five...

I really loved this book! I laughed and I was shocked and I held my breath - Nick and Andi, our hero and our heroine kept me on my toes. Andi was an amazing character, I loved that she was capable and no push-over but someone who fights for what (or whom) she wants. With Andi and Nick's pasts, well, they had their work cut out for them because experiences like that aren't easy
