When one door closes ... second chances open another ...

Ethan was lost after a major accident abruptly shifted him from a military life to a civilian one, from working with dogs to odd jobs ... In that time, he'd spent months healing from his physical injuries. When he connects with Badger and the rest of his Titanium Corp. group of former SEALs, Badger offers Ethan an opportunity he can't refuse. A chance to do the work he used to do ... with a twist.

Cinnamon works from home as a project manager plus is heavily involved in global dog rescues—dogs of all kinds. When Ethan walks into the next door's vet's office with an injured shepherd in his arms, she sees another lost soul—just like the canine ones she helps.

Ethan knows he's about to take a dangerous step, but he's on the job, and no one—on the job or not—hurts animals while he's around. This poor shepherd has taken enough abuse, and Ethan fears she is only the tip of a nightmare he's determined to uncover. But he knows she's going to lead him in the right direction.
He has his sights set on saving one dog in particular, Sentry: K9 File 01.

Loved this book. Great to read about our military heroes, both two- and four- legged, and helping them adjust to civilian life. Thanks for a great read and shining a light on the subjects.

Love it! Hunk men and dogs! What could be better! This is the first book in the series (and I have loved all of the author’s other series)! We are introduced to the first of a group of men who are dedicated to saving their canine companions from war. There is mystery, suspense and romance (and of course dogs!). This book had a great story, suspense some romance and a bit of sex. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A great beginning to a new series with K9 dogs as the focus and their rescue. Ethan was a trainer and handler when stationed and his first assignment is to find and retrieve Sentry, a vet dog that has been “missing” and needs to be found. He gets the request from Badger, and ends up while looking for Sentry, finding another dog in bad shape. When he brings her to the vet’s, he also meets Cinnamon, a woman who also loves animals, especially dogs, and has a business that finds families to adopt dogs. While Ethan continues his search for Sentry, he finds a shady business, bringing bad news to his front door and inadvertently dragging Cinnamon into the dangerous situation as well...can he help the dogs as well as Cinnamon. A great read with a slow burn between these two, a bit of steam, danger, some suspense, and melting heart scenes with all the dogs. I loved this beginning, Ethan was quiet, strong, and had a way with the dogs and Cinnamon didn’t beat around the bush and was a strong resilient woman. These two had sparks flying off the pages and I enjoyed their banter, along with the suspense and danger, made it page turner and a book I couldn’t put down. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

Ethan was struggling to find his place and his purpose after his military career. He agrees to a request from Badger to search for one of a number missing former military K9s. Before he can find K9-01 as he'd decided to call him, Ethan finds an abused female shepherd that he refuses to let suffer any more. Having been part of the K-9 unit in the military, he feels that he has the training and is determined that he can help "Sally" and also find the ones responsible for hurting her. Ethan also meets Cinn, another dog lover, and is drawn to her and feels a connection to another person that he hasn't felt in a while. As they get to know each other and he looks for K9-01, someone targets Cinn and Ethan has to find a way to keep her safe.

Oh my gosh.. I have so much respect for the men, women, and dogs that serve, and this book was outstanding! Ethan is on a mission of sorts.. he's going to try and locate a war dog, and check on it's wellbeing. He finds the dog and meets Cinn, a woman who helps rescue and rehome dogs from all over the world. Sentry was a well trained war dog, but he's been abused and tormented. It's up to Ethan to try to win over Sentry, and let him be the amazing creature he started out as. So much love for this book!

I really love the idea of this series; what happens to our K9 veterans. Ethan is at a crossroads in life on an uncertain path to his future, but a chance mission may just lead him to where he is meant to be. I really enjoyed Ethan and Cinnamon together. They had such great chemistry. Plus Cinnamon has such strength that will match perfectly with Ethan. I loved Ethan's passion for the dogs. I really loved the scenes with him working with the dogs. It's like magic with what he can do. It gives these animals hope. It really broke my heart to see what they were exposed to. This book is well rounded. It has heat, heart, humor, and suspense that at times kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read to more from this series.

WOW! What a fantastic new series!! I love everything about it! I was totally captivated from the very beginning. This story grabs your heart and doesn’t let go. I enjoyed all the descriptive and informative details about the area and about the K9 Unit as a whole as well as the individual dogs, their training and the commands used. I love the heart of this story. It’s all about the dogs and their journey from trained military dogs to becoming retired or discharged military vets. They are still good dogs, well trained and very confused. This is such an in-depth and intriguing story. Cinn has the skills and connections to help dogs in need from all over the world while Ethan has the touch and instinct to train and handle even the most difficult dogs he comes across. This story puts you right there where all the action is. You can feel the heat and almost taste the dust when Cinn must improvise or get captured. This is definitely a rapid page turner! You won’t put this book down until you find out what happens! I am excited for this series and can hardly wait to start book two! Excellent job! I loved it!

4.5 Stars This is book 1 In the K-9 Files series and it features Ethan and Cinn. These two have a quick, strange friendship with an implied attraction. Any other book would have had me pulling my hair out at the slow pace of their romance but considering his personality, state of mind and her sort of prickly (not sure that’s the correct word to describe her) personality, their romance moved at the perfect pace. The story line was so good, full of action and adventure, that the romance took a back seat until much later in the book. The dogs were awesome and Ethan confidence in working with them was exciting. I love the concept and this first book in the series hits the mark! The story line has great flow and the characters are all mostly familiar from other series. I can’t wait to see what adventure the next book takes us on.

Ethan a K9 handler has been asked to look for a missing war hero canine. She has gone missing and the War Dept is worried about her. Cinnamon is a warm hearted lady that loves rescuing and finding homes for homeless dogs. Throw in strange activity at the place down the road, a kidnapping and drugs before you know it you have a major problem on your hands. Cinnamon is caught in the middle of it all, when the bullets start to fly. I will not give a spoiler. You will have a hard time putting the book down. I did because of the you just have to see what is going to happen next. I love Dale Mayer books. She never disappoints I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Ethan by Dale Mayer The K9 Files Book One Ethan Nebberly has always been somewhat of a loner, but since he's been out of the military...he's even more so. It's been tough. He'd lost his K9 partner...and his leg. When Badger asks him to help hunt down some former War Dogs, Ethan takes on the job. He soon finds something to look forward to again. Cinnamon “Cinn” Michelson loves helping dogs. So much so, she helps find dogs home that are from some of the foreign countries. When a new guy comes to town and finds an injured shepherd, she wants to make sure the dog is well taken care of. Not in the hands of some drifter who can't even take care of himself. War Dogs aren't your average pets. They've been trained as soldiers. In the wrong hands...they are a dangerous weapon. Add abuse to these beautiful creatures and Ethan has his hands full. Great story. Loved reading about the dogs. Looks like this is going to be another page-turning series. **Sensual content and language

I absolutely loved this book. It was so true to life. The story is about the main character being assigned to go in search of a dog who has served in a war. The dog has been sent home either due to injury, PTSD and/or illness and has been assigned to someone who is supposed to care for the dog and keep the dog for their own. But, for some reason, the dog has been lost. Things are not easy in the search for the dog but the main character is determined to protect the dog and the ensuing story keeps you guessing and has you rooting for the K9 and the main character. This book grabs your attention and doesn't let go! What an awesome start to a great series about an awesome subject! If you love dogs and action you will love this book!!

Love, Love, Love this new series by Dale Mayer from our Badgers group of Seals and their new company Titanium Corp, that employees former seals, who in this series is searching for K-9 units that the government has lost track of after their return home. This one has Ethan, a former K-9 handler and trainer searching for Sentry. He crosses paths with Cinnamon who works from her house and is actively involved in global dog rescues. This book touches all the bases, and can be enjoyed by multiple age groups. Suspense, K-9, romance, former seals, our wonderful friends, Levi, Anna, Flynn , who if you haven't met before you will definitely want to go read their own stories. Cinnamon is one intelligent, thoughtful, gutsy women and I loved how she took on each issue with calm and logic. Her banter with Ethan made me smile. His calmness as he took on aggressive dogs taught to harm was inspiring and his willingness to show all dogs can be re-homed if taught correctly made my day. You do not want to miss this series if you love former seals, dogs and their women! Thank you Dale Mayer, thank you Booksprout for this incredible arc! All thoughts and opinions are my own and were unsolicited.
