Perfect Partners ~ A Review



Perfect Partners by Maggie Cummings is a contemporary romance that tells the tale of Sara Wright, an elite police dog trainer and her student Isabel (Izzy) Marquez, one of Sara’s students. Izzy is currently a NYPD officer training to be in the K-9 unit. There are sparks when the two meet, but Sara has this rule about never dating anyone in service. The story follows the two as Izzy trains with her dog Chase, and the two go from teacher and student to friends and finally much more.

I liked this lovely story, but felt that there was something missing in the tale. The story is told in the third person POV through Izzy and sometimes Sara, but there was a part in the middle where we mostly see only Izzy’s POV, and I kept wishing I could have looked into Sarah’s mind to figure out why she was acting the way she was. I didn’t feel as connected with Sara as I did with Izzy because of this. I did enjoy the romance between the two. I liked the progression from teacher/student to friends and then lovers. The angst was about right for the storyline. Honestly, the best part for me was Chase, Izzy’s canine partner. I loved learning about how the dogs and their partners are trained and certified.

If you like friends to lovers romances, you will enjoy this book. If you are a fan of books about dogs, you will love this book. I enjoyed it, and I fit into both categories.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review. You can get your copy here
