Retired Master Chief Rusty Kuzinsky has worked his fingers to the bone preparing a retreat called Never Forget, a place for Navy SEALs to find solace and healing after grueling operations. Just as his first guests are due to arrive, a military war dog suffering from PTSD lands in Rusty’s lap, requiring attention he can’t spare.
NCIS Special Agent Maya Schultz has her hands full raising a teenage son on her own. Ten years ago, Rusty witnessed her husband’s death. Now he’s offering her son a summer job caring for his new dog. Maya can’t tell what’s more dangerous—the crazy dog or her attraction to a man she should not find attractive.
But when her son suddenly goes missing, Rusty and his unhinged dog become Maya’s only hope.
