When the Right One Comes Along (K-9 Trilogy, #1) 
"When The Right One Comes Along"
Kate James

Brought together by disaster. Kept together by love.

In the aftermath of a deadly earthquake, it's chaos for trauma surgeon Jessica Hansen. Among the many victims, one patient stands out—San Diego Police K-9 search and rescue officer Cal Palmer.

Cal vows to help Kayla, a child orphaned by the disaster. But he needs Jessica's help. Will their shared concern for Kayla and for Cal's canine partner, Scout, allow them to put aside their personal torments and discover the difference love can make?

This book is filled with adventure from page one.  It keeps your attention and the pages turning.  I can't ever remember reading a book that involved an earthquake before, so I enjoyed the different story line from that perspective.  

I didn't appreciate the language that was dropped in here and there.  

I loved Scout and the relationship he and Cal had.

Cal heard a car pull into his driveway. Going by the sound of the engine, he figured it was a sports car. He thought the staid and presumably conservative doctor would’ve driven a practical sedan. For a few seconds, he wondered if his visitor was someone else.
He hobbled over to the window and squinted through the blinds in time to see the doctor climb out of a spiffy yellow Miata. She managed to do it gracefully despite her height.
As he watched, she noticed his personal car, a classic Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet he’d bought on a whim after leaving Lincoln. She tucked her hands in her back pockets and slowly circled it, stopping to peer in through the driver’s window before stepping back and giving his car a final appreciative look.
Well, what do you know? The doc likes fast cars.
Jessica Hansen looked much as he remembered her from the quake site. But a cleaned-up version. Seeing her in jeans, low-heeled sandals and a tank top made her seem more…approachable. The thing that struck him most was her hair—long, loose and cascading down her back. It seemed so incongruous with the prim and proper doctor he assumed her to be. Gorgeous hair, clearly intelligent and a fondness for dogs and cars. How could a guy not be captivated?
