Forever Strong by Piper J. Drake

On the beautiful Hawaiian Islands, not all is paradise in this high-stakes, action-packed romantic suspense.

He'll risk his life for her... but will he risk his heart?

Jiang Ying Yue assumed her kidnapping was random, that she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After all, who would want to harm her? But then her rescuer—a charismatic former soldier who takes her breath away—uncovers a traitor in her father's organization. Now, Ying Yue realizes that she's become a pawn in a dangerous game, and her kidnapper won't be satisfied until she disappears for good.

Zu Anyanwu's work with Search and Protect and his canine partner Buck have always been his first priority... until he's tasked with keeping Ying Yue safe. To him, the brave and resilient investment expert is more than just another client. But with danger closing in, Zu can't let his emotions get in the way of the most important job he's ever had—protecting the woman he loves.

M/F Military Romance

We find ourselves plunked right in the middle of this story. I'm unsure if book five has some of the beginning to book six, but I did read book four and saw a few characters that were mentioned. However, this is very much a standalone book in that it's solely about Jiang Ying Yue and Zu.

This is not as fast paced as book four. There is more backstory to the book, and I felt that this story was slightly jumbled.

I found that Jiang Ying Yue was very naive, despite the fact that she was supposed to have been a very successful non-profit starter. She had to deal with a lot of people and while there were hints as to what her degrees were in, it was never truly spelled out.

Zu and Buck, his K-9 partner, were somewhat hard to get to know. Zu was the leader and while he had some baggage in his past, he has to look forward. He has hand chosen his group and trusts them implicitly. When he meets Jiang Ying Yue, there is supposedly an instant connection. But Zu's behavior and lack of conversation leaves the reader feeling somewhat lost.

Overall, while this had a lot of action and plenty of mystery, the romance was very flat and I found the characters difficult to relate to. But having said that, I did like the action and mystery. It kept the story very interesting.
