A story of heartbreak, pain, friendship and support. It also has love, passion, and emotional drama. This story will grab your emotions and keep you reading until the very end. The characters are well developed and at times you are unhappy and so sad, but you can’t help but love and feel close to them. I enjoyed reading this book.

Parker by Dale Mayer K9 Files Series Book Six Parker Cutter is heading to Iraq after his brother was killed, along with his crew. While there, the Titanium Corp has asked him to search for a missing War Dog. Samson. Since his brother's best friend was killed in the same incident, his friend's sister, Sandy, flew with Parker to the base. It was supposed to be easy. Fly in, stay for a service, fly home with the bodies. Look for Samson when he could. Nothing is ever that easy... Sandy Bressard, a nurse in the military...stateside. She'd heard about Parker from her brother. Knew he was a good guy. She was glad she wasn't alone on this journey that she felt she had to make. Ends up, she's really glad she has Parker at her side. Both Parker and Sandy will be ending their military service in the next few weeks. Their brothers' deaths helped decide that for both of them. What they didn't expect was what trouble they accidentally fell into when searching for a lost dog. Another page-turning adventure from beginning to end. **Sexual content and language

This is book 6 in the K-9 Files series and it features Parker and Sandy. These two are flying to Iraq to escort each of their brothers back home for their funerals. Well there, Parker was asked to find a retired and missing canine agent. The fantastic adventure that followed the search was full of mystery and suspense but drug on much too long. The romance definitely need more spice than a kiss on the forehead and talks about forever and all this in one day. I understand being put in danger repeatedly can bring two people together but constant adrenaline rushes should have spiced it up instead of making them tired all the time. The suspense and intrigue were fantastic. The romance definitely needed more...a lot more!

This is a series which sure has been an eye opener for me. The forgotten K9 war dogs who would've ever thought they could be neglected and luckily for them these books remind us that they are true heroes too. Action packed, full of suspense had me on the edge of my seat at times and I certainly couldn't put this page turner down. As usual there's quite a few twists that has I never expected. I am truly hoping that The K9 Files have many more future books to be released. Could be read as a standalone but you'd truly appreciate heading back to the first book before or after.

I’ve read most of the books in this series and this one was just as good as all the rest. I love the way the team supports each other and looks out for the best interest of the war dogs. The plot is well developed and the characters are great. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Parker and Sandy are both heading back to the war zone to bring their brothers home, they have never met but know of each other as their brothers were best friends and served together. What should have been a straight forward fly in and fly out turns into a twisted web of lies, betrayal, stealing and death that all starts with Parker looking for Samson. Who knew looking for 1 dog could blow open the evil that was lurking at the base, as well as throw two people together who needed someone else to lean on during their loss and have sparks fly as well.

Another hit by this author and the K9 series this one featuring Parker and Sandy. When Parker has to head overseas to collect his brother who died while serving, he’s accompanied by Sandy, who also lost her brother. The two brothers were best friends and this is the first time the two meet, so when a request is made to find a lost K9, Samson, he asks Sandy to accompany him while there, hoping to do something while there and keep them occupied while grieving. Sandy agrees and they set out from the barracks, only to find themselves in the middle of a ring who steal from the military for their own gain and don’t care who ends up hurt or dead in the process. A great read with steam and suspense with amazing characters and a K9 you would want for yourself. The story has all the feels and some sadness as the deaths of soldiers who gave their life serving their country. I love the no drama and the instant attraction, possessiveness and protection that comes with each story and once again doesn’t disappoint. Samson the K9 stole the scenes in this one as well and I loved that Samson was not hurt or abused while lost. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

The K9 Files are about wounded warriors, SEALS, who are enlisted to find retired war dogs. In the search and rescue of these valiant dogs these same warriors find themselves. Parker, a Seal vet, and Sandy, a military nurse, are on a mission to escort brothers home, killed in action. The book is sad and serious, warm and romantic. Seriously, it is a page turner. Wow! About the time I think I have it figured out another twist appears. I picked up the book and finished it in one sitting. Bravo!!

Omg..this book kept me up all night reading. I couldn’t put it down because right from the beginning I was hooked. Parker is heading overseas to escort his brother’s casket back to the states. Sandy is doing the same thing, and they meet up overseas. Parker is also going to be looking for a decommissioned wardog named Samson. Samson went missing from the airport while he was waiting to be shipped back to the states. Let the nonstop action and mystery begin. My emotions were all over the place with this book.. tears, anger, shock, and happiness. You’ll be turning pages and thinking you finally know who the bad guys are, and then boom.. more bad guys. This was an exciting read, and tops my list for favourite in this series.. although I do say that after I read each book in the series ;) There is a teaser at the end that leads into the next book, and I’m already anxious to read it.. pretty sure that will be my new favourite in the series haha. Outstanding read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Each book in the series has kept my attention from start to finish. I started this particular book with high expectations as I have loved every book so far in the K9 Files! The story of Parker and Sandy and the K9 Samson went well beyond my expectations. . Any book with animals that are rescued is a major plus for me. The story in this book is so real to life. The fact that Parker and Sandy were sent to bring back their deceased brothers who were killed while serving in the military was very eye opening and the story-line seemed so accurate that I was close to tears when reading it. The book centered around rescuing the military dog but also had some action, suspense and romance too. I loved this book and I look forward to reading the next in the series!

When there’s only one person you know you can trust. In this exciting and frustrating endeavor, Parker Cutter, whose war injuries had taken him permanently out of active military duty, has been working with Titanium Corp as an electrician and builder and is ten days away from his official discharge. The death of his brother, Jerry, has him on his way back to Iraq to accompany the body home after a military honor ceremony. On a since-you’re-going-there-anyway request from Geir, Parker has agreed to look for decommissioned War Dog Samson, who was last seen waiting to be boarded on a plane back to the U.S. from the same Iraq base to which Parker is headed. At takeoff time, Samson was nowhere to be found on the plane, at the airport, or at the base. On the flight from California to Iraq, Parker meets Sandy, whose brother, Jeremy, and Jerry were best friends and died together in the same event. Both military themselves, Parker and Sandy share their belief that their brothers’ deaths are significant factors in their own decisions to leave the military. Both had done tours in Iraq and had friends in the town near the base there. Sandy has been a military nurse working in the US, but it was Jeremy’s influence that kept her in the service. Without him, she cannot see a future for herself there. With so much in common, Parker and Sandy form a bond that began from their shared grief, but then expanded as they worked together to find missing War Dog Samson. Frustrated by bureaucracy and black-market greed, they each find themselves to be the only ones they can trust through this whole ordeal. A real page-turner. Just could not put it down. Great read!

This is another excellent addition to this entertaining series. The story is filled with action, adventure, drama, excitement, danger, suspense, emotions, edge-of-your-seat twists and romance. Parker and Sandy were interesting and likable characters. I enjoyed how their story unfolded and seeing this couple tackle every obstacle that they went up against.

What had seemed a simple but tragic journey to return home with their brothers bodies turned into a nightmare involving attempts on their lives, espionage and danger. Parker and Sandy also used their short time in Iraq to search for missing K9 Samson. This is a really well written and exciting story which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This is the sixth book in the fabulous K9 series, all standalone, all with fantastic characters but all with one aim, to bring war dags who have valiantly served their country, back to the US for a carefree retirement. At some point all have these dogs have disappeared and have to be found. Parker has the sad task of accompanying his brothers body back from Iraq after he had been killed in action. Sandy and Parker's brothers had been best friends and had both been killed on the same mission, Sandy was also heading out to Iraq to bring her brother back home. Parker, who was shortly to leave his SEAL team, had a couple of days spare whilst in Iraq before his flight home and he was asked by his commanding officer if he would mind having a scout round the base for Sampson, a K9 who had disappeared from the base despite being already crated for a flight to the US. Sandy, who until recently had been a military nurse, and Parker fell into an easy friendship when they met and decided to travel together. Sandy offered to help Parker search for Sampson and it quickly became apparent that all was not well at the base. Who could they trust with their suspicions when they found a body, everyone was a suspect, where was Sampson ?, the body count was stacking, they were both in grave danger and they were unarmed.. This book contains intrigue, treachery, suspense,kidnapping by rebels, murder and of course romance. I absolutely loved this story, the end is where you find out who the perpetrators are and then it gently leads into the next story......I can't wait. Would I recommend it ? you bet .

Just when you thought it was safe…. When Parker heads back to Iraq, it’s to pick up his brother’s body and to try to find Samson, a missing K9 war dog. Sandy has also gone to the base to pick up her brother's body. As a distraction from their grief, Parker invites Sandy to accompany him on an initial search. Finding Samson went relatively smoothly, but staying safe until they leave is going to be much harder. I received a free copy of this book from the author through Booksprout. This is my honest and voluntarily given review. This book is very suspenseful. I didn't want to put it down and read it in a little over a day. Their relationship is very believable. I love this book and I think that it is my favorite in this series. This book can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

(4.5)A brief interlude and than bam flat out go,go,go. Fast paced suspense. This book touches on a lot of different emotions. Parker and Sandy are flying to Iraq to bring their brothers bodies home. There brothers were in the same unit and friends. Parker has been asked to do a general search, investigation for Samson, the missing K9. I will say relatively early in the book they get Samson, and then bodies start dropping and more. Every couple of pages there was a new twist, a new frenemy. I personally thought someone would be involved who wasn't;trying to avoid spoilers and that always makes a book extra special. Yes there is romance, its dealt with light enough that 16 and up could read. These days 14 and up. I digress. I personally enjoy watching a friendship, relationship build and then when they get together its not hard core erotica. Win for me!! Every book that I read by Dale Mayer has something to make me think. This one was what happens to military dogs, different handlers, being retired, etc.

Parker and Sandy are both on their way to Iraq to escort their individual brothers home after they were killed in action. The brothers, Jerry and Jeremy were best friends, however, Parker and Sandy (both military too) had never met until this trip. Parker and Sandy (a nurse stateside) are both considering retiring after this loss and Parker is still healing from injuries of his own. Parker had been asked if he would consider checking on the disappearance of a K9 war dog while he was gone since the dog was last seen at an airport near the area where he would be traveling. Sounds simple but from here we are introduced to a rebel camp, kidnapping both dog and later girl, greed, cover up and generalized chaos. Quite an adventure coupled with the sad original reason for going on this trip! Very well done. I really enjoyed this story and stayed up way too late reading! The sign of a very good book. The epilogue includes a hint about the next book including Carter going back to one of his favorite places with a history for him and his search for Matzuka, another missing K9. Love these books!
