Review: Called to Protect (Blue Justice #2) by Lynette Eason

About the Book
For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiance for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.

When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?

Bestselling author Lynette Eason warns readers to buckle in for a fast and furious ride that will have their hearts pumping from the very start.

My Thoughts

I loved Oath of Honor, the first book in this series, and couldn't wait to dive into the second one. I didn't know if it could possibly be as good as the first one, but I had no need to worry. It definitely is! It's an intense nail-biter from the very first page. It had my anxiety high and my heart racing.

Dealing with the serious topic of human trafficking, Called to Protect is a compelling, heart wrenching, and hard to put down read. It's disturbing to think that what happens in this book is actually happening all over the world right now. It wasn't always an easy read, but it's an important one. I appreciate books that shine a light on these heinous crimes.

One of my favorite aspects of this story was the relationship between Chloe and her K-9 partner Hank. The amount of trust they had in each other was awesome. It just reiterated how amazing those dogs are. 

It was great being back with the St. John family and even though this is book two in the series, it stands alone just fine. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys heart-pounding suspense. I can't wait for the next one!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.

Five Stars


  1. This series does sound good! (Mostly because of the dog.) Have you read Margaret Mizushima's Timber Creek mystery series? She's got an awesome cop/K-9 partnership in her books, too. The dog, Robo, is my favorite character in that series. :)

    1. I haven't read that series, but I'll definitely check it out. I love books featuring K-9s. Thanks for stopping by, Lark! Happy reading! :)

  2. I haven't heard of this series, but it sounds really good. And I love the cover. I'm gonna have to check it out.

    1. The series is fantastic. I think it's Lynette Eason at her finest. Thanks for visiting, Ash! Happy reading! :)
