    vet and the cop

    A really sweet, really hot fun love story between shy veterinarian Rayna and K9 officer Derek. After months of taking his dog to unnecessary appointment to vet Derek men up and ask Rayna out on a date. So they start a really sensual relationship in which Derek as the more dominant partner is testing Rayna's limits and is getting to know of her and sees her as the one. There is just one thing Rayna doesn't like cops and he has a daughter. The story is really more erotic but with great likable characters. We see that they have both a lot of baggage from the past, especially Rayna. And the fear is the main factor that they have to overcome to be happy. I would like to see Tish an Jeff story in the future. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

    Not for me

    Unfortunately for me, Avoiding the Badge just didn’t capture my interest. I made it about half way and ended up skimming the rest. While the writing style was just fine, I got tangled up in the character inconsistencies and a growing list of little problems that built on each other. I wanted to like Derek and Rayna but I struggled to connect with their characters. Derek was alright but there was something slightly flat about his personality. He’s pretty much obsessed with Rayna and he believes she’s “the one” almost from the beginning. He constantly mentions how pure and innocent Rayna is and he loves her makeup free face and he just didn’t seem to see any flaws in her even when they were there. As for Rayna, was too inconsistent in her actions; she doesn’t trust cops because her father was a cop and he cheated over and over again on her mother. Rayna is attracted to Derek but she wants nothing to do with him — until he asks her out and she promptly says yes. I expected a bit more resistance considering the build up to that point. I was also getting concerned for Rayna’s health considering how often she was throbbing in various ways. I don’t mind insta-lust or insta-love but I just didn’t believe it this time and that made it hard to accept how perfect they were together almost from the beginning. While I wasn’t completely on board with the insta nature of their relationship, I did enjoy the chemistry Rayna and Derek share in the bedroom. Derek enjoys some light BDSM and he begins to introduce Rayna to things like dirty-talk, dominance, and simple bondage. I felt that Dorothy F. Shaw did a good job showing how kink can develop naturally in a relationship, as opposed to characters meeting in a BDSM club. I wish this had worked out better for me but sadly I just couldn’t make the connection or find the interest.

    Loved The Dog!

    This book just didn't work for me. The blurb looked interesting enough, K-9 officer and a Vet and I felt it fell miserably short of that. Dex Hansen is the hottest thing in town and a K-9 handler. When his partner Axel is injured he meets Rayna the local Vet. After that, Dex starts paying weekly visits to the office, for "check ups" for Axel when he's basically too scared to ask Rayna out on a date. Rayna doesn't do cops since he father was a police officer and cheated on her mother relentlessly. Yet when he finally asks her out, she agrees. Then invites him home with her. Dex is dominant and the story alludes that he's got his mitts into a little kink, but the book doesn't show us that. Most of what we see are two one dimensional main characters, with two annoying as hell friends and page after page of redundant sex, leaving me to wonder if there's a plot buried under here somewhere when it's obvious there isn't one. I could drone on about a few other things the book lacked but that would just be repetitious. I knocked this up to 3 stars because of Axel. I loved that dog. I really had hoped this book would bring it and I'm sorry to say it didn't. *arc from NetGalley and Publisher for an honest review*

    Ok story

    3 Star Review of Avoiding The Badge (Arizona K9 #1) by Dorothy F Shaw Dorothy F Shaw is a new author to me. I really liked the premise of this story. What’s not to love about a book that includes animals? I found myself a little disappointed in this story.Although I liked the main characters of smoking hot cop Derek Hansen (and his K9 partner Axle)and veterinarian Rayna Michaels it was not enough for me to connect. I felt that the storyline was a tad rushed and that there could have been more time given to developing a deeper plot, but then that is just my opinion. Derek appeared to be almost fixated on Rayna and she seemed to be oblivious to his feelings. Rayna will not even contemplate dating a cop, as her father was one and cheated on her mother. Then suddenly Derek and Rayna were all over each other which was rather confusing. There was just not enough to keep my attention in Avoiding The Badge. However having said that, although this book was not for me, I will check out more from this author in the future.
