This book was completely amazing. I loved it. It heals my soul to read about veterans and animals. It is so important to talk about Ptsd and J.A. Coffey brought everything to life. This book is emotional, heart-rendering, and worth the read. My soul is happy after this book!
Being an animal lover myself I couldn’t resist reading this book by Ms. J. A. Coffey. Even though it is part of a series the book can definitely stand alone with no problems of course I will have to read the rest in the series just so more about her wonderfully complex characters. This is also the first book I have ever read from Ms. Coffey so I figured it couldn’t be bad since there were going to be dogs in the book plus this is definitely not going to be my last I will get more books to re [...]
There was so much emotion in this story. I loved the storyline and the characters. They were well developed and seemed so real. There were many times that I laughed at the dialogue between the characters. Allison Dare was a spitfire and very independent. I was really cringing in the very beginning when she came in contact with her inheritance from her cousin. Especially after reading that all of her pets ended up dying but then when she got the little fluff “Precious” she thought of fiving h [...]

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Double Dog Dare (Southern Seduction, #4) . . . I had so much fun with this light, easy, quick read.

J.A. Coffey blazed into my life with this book which was the first book I have read by this author. I picked it up due to the blurb and thankfully it did not disappoint me.Allison Dare is my kind of leading lady - plenty of attitude in a small delicious (well, Mack seems to think so) packet. Ex military she is used to being in charge and becoming the adopted parent of a disobedient puppy does not sit well with her. However, the endearing thing is it is not because the puppy behaves like a puppy, [...]
Loved it! Great story and very well written. Awesome characters, totally fell in love with Mack, he is definitely a great book boyfriend. Also liked Allison a lot, she is a strong character, just like Mack. I don't like weak females and she was definitely not weak. I loved that she was kind of clueless when it came to the puppy (Precious) and that some funny moments happened because of both of them. The story was really good and kept me reading till I was done. The story is also touching and sad [...]
Double Dog Dare took a while to grow on me, but grow on me it did.

Allison is dealing with being sidelined from her high intensity career thanks to brittle bones and stress fractures in her feet. Mack lost part of his eg in Afghanistan, but it is the loss of his partner, a German Shepherd named Gunner that has affected him the most.Both the p [...]
I recently discovered Ms. Coffey in the Shades of Desire romance set, and I truly enjoy her writing. Her characters meld naturally together- their jobs are so different, yet I love how she makes their differences work together.Gutsy Allison Dare was a background character in a former novel, "Hell on Heels," and this story picks up where the last one left off, healing foot and everything. Allison gets tossed into a situation she can't control, and for someone used to barking commands, getting bar [...]
This book looks at a lot of issues returning military members face--PSTD, injury, loss. All this was dealt with I think realistically, but with such empathy I think I got a glimpse of how difficult life back here can be for them. Mack has lost his leg and more importantly his willingness to let people in. Allison may not have been wounded in combat, is forced to change the way she contributes and also suffering from the loss. The connection and immediate and electric. So rewarding to see them he [...]
