Release Week Review! Defending Allye (Mountain Mercenaries #1) Susan Stoker!
Defending Allye (Mountain Mercenaries) - Susan Stoker

 

 

Love is a life-and-death risk for the Mountain Mercenaries in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s explosive series of alpha heroes, hot action, and hard passion…

 

Ever since his rescue op off the Pacific Coast, Mountain Mercenary Gray Rogers hasn’t been able to forget his latest “job”—Allye Martin. Any other woman would have panicked during a rescue, but the wily dancer kept her cool—even after being kidnapped by an elusive human trafficker. And Gray couldn’t be happier when a grateful Allye follows him home to Colorado Springs…

 

For Allye, finding sanctuary in the arms—and bed—of the former Navy SEAL is only temporary. People are disappearing off the streets of San Francisco, victims of the same underground trade that targeted her, and Allye could be the key to dismantling the entire operation. She’s willing to do anything to bring them down. Gray isn’t—for good reason. But you don’t say no to a tough girl like Allye who refuses to play it safe.

 

Now Gray is risking more than ever before. The Mountain Mercenaries have his back. But is it enough to keep the woman he loves out of harm’s way?

 

 

The first book in Susan Stoker’s new “Mountain Mercenaries” series – “Defending Allye” is an exciting read from start to finish.

 

The characters are strong, easily connected to and have a sizzling chemistry that heats up the pages while singing readers with its intensity. Gray and Allye’s romance is one that starts off in a wrong time, wrong place kind of spot and then really begins to take off when the danger to Allye continues and they can no longer fight their attraction despite the emotional issues and other obstacles that are facing this couple.

 

The fast paced plot is full of thrills, danger and twists that keeps readers glued to the pages with anticipation and suspense while the Mountain Mercenaries search for and try to take down an underground slave trade that has targeted Allye. The story is quite intense, full of emotionally invoking issues and the bad guy is one that readers will love to see him get what he deserves which ensures readers keep turning the pages along with Gray and Allye’s growing romance that just may end up being over before it really gets going.

 

Susan Stoker has created a thrilling new action suspense world that is gritty and satisfying with vivid characters that I want to get to know better. “Defending Allye” kept me enthralled and hanging on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I love how “real” Gray’s feelings and reactions were and I can’t wait to read the next book in this exciting new series.

Six ex-soldiers. Six perfect strangers. Bound by the things they’ve done, the things they’ve seen, and the turmoil they’ve suffered. Until fate gives them another purpose…

 

When several soldiers find themselves frequenting the same pool hall, it’s more than coincidence. The world sees them as broken, but their singular skills make them perfectly suited for jobs outside the law, beyond it, hunting down criminals with the aid of a mysterious “handler.” Time and again, they’ve proven they have each other’s backs. Loyalty that will be necessary when, one by one, each man must call on his brothers in arms to save the woman he loves.

Claiming Felicity (Ace Security Book 4) - Susan Stoker

Ryder is alpha hot!     He has all kind toughness but beneath it all he is a softy with a huge heart.     Castle Rock, Colorado is where he meets Felicity while he is meeting his ½ brothers for the first time.    Imagine that stress and then he walks in on all the drama surrounding Felicity.    Talk about a lot going on in his world.     But he manages to keep it all together, open his heart to his new family and to find the love of his life.  

 

The brother’s in this story are all alpha males.   I loved that they questioned Ryder when he arrived but accepted him as their brother when it really counted.    They opened their homes, their families, and their business without ever doubting Ryder’s reliability.   It was wonderful to see a man who had no family get accepted into a large, loving family. 

 

The storyline of Ryder and Felicity was intense.    A woman on the run, a man wanting to taunt her and kill her, and in walks her hero.    It was refreshing to see Felicity not fall apart, she stood strong, accepted help, and stayed involve in saving her own life.   Felicity is a strong character that had a rough life but managed to find happiness in an unlikely place.    

 

I am new to the Ace Security series and am excited to read more about these amazing brothers.     I am also excited to learn more about the Mercenary Men and their stories.

Shelter for Blythe
Shelter for Blythe - Susan Stoker Shelter for Blythe - Susan Stoker


Shelter for Blythe is book 11 in the series but its a stand alone. However, we meet Blythe in Sophie's book. Blythe was homeless and living on the street near Sophie's place of employment. Blythe also plays a role in Milena's book; in a way, Blythe is helping the villain of Milena's book. Now, however, Blythe needs help. She is attacked on the streets. Squirrel, aka Sawyer, gave Blythe his phone months ago and they begin a few text conversations. This leads to a budding friendship that changes Blythe's life.

Sawyer is not like the other heroes from this series. He isn't a muscular, isn't as tall, isn't as 'manly' in his eyes. He is a bit self deprecating which was a bit odd. I'm not sure it was bad or good. Just different. Blythe's backstory is sad and fairly typically of many people who find themselves homeless. I thought Sawyer and Blythe were a good match for each other but overall, I felt the story was kind of flat. There isn't much danger or action; the plot mainly revolves around the relationship between Sawyer and Blythe. It wasn't bad, but it was a bit anticlimactic.

Bottom line: I liked the story and was glad to finally get more info about Blythe, but overall it was a little slow.

 
  • POV: 3rd
  • Tears: no
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes




authors like Kaylea Cross, Maryann Jordan, Sharon Hamilton...then you will probably like Shelter for Blythe!

Rescuing Wendy
Rescuing Wendy - Susan Stoker Rescuing Wendy - Susan Stoker


Rescuing Wendy continues the stories of the Delta Force team finding love. This time, the man who falls hard is Blade! Here are my thoughts:
  • At first, I was SUPER annoyed with Wendy's self deprecation. I get annoyed with heroines who are all like "oh my gosh, why does he like me? I'm ugly/fat/not worth it". I realize that MOST women are like this, but it gets annoying to read about it.
  • However, I did end up liking Wendy and thought she was a really unique character. What she did for her brother was amazing (yet very far fetched).
  • Blade and Wendy had some attraction and I liked that they got to know each other before ever meeting. I'm not sure I fully felt the connection between them, but it didn't ruin the story.
  • The suspense near the end with Wendy's brother Jack was a bit (a lot) over the top. A Delta Force team taking down some bullies? But, whatever, I still liked it! You just have to kind of suspend reality a bit. I know some readers hate that, but its not a deal breaker for me.
  • Jack is a cool kid and his relationship with Wendy really added a lot of awesomeness to the story!

If you like romantic suspense with imperfect heroines (and I don't mean physically imperfect), strong family bonds, and a touch of danger, Rescuing Wendy will be right up your alley!

 
  • POV: 3rd
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: secret identity, military
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series
  • Cliffhanger: not really, but the book really sets up the next book, Truck and Mary's story, big time!
  • HEA: yes




books by authors like Kaylea Cross, Janie Crouch, Katie Reus...then you will probably like Rescuing Wendy!

Justice for Milena
Justice for Milena - Susan Stoker Justice for Milena - Susan Stoker


I rave about Susan Stoker on this blog! Seriously, I even convinced my mom to read her books. I love that she publishes so frequently because I always have something great to read! Justice for Milena is part of the Badge of Honor series but is a stand alone. The plot does set up the plot for 2 upcoming books as well!

Milena and TJ were in love until he left her without a word. Typical guy-he thought he was too broken for her. Fast forward 3 years and TJ, the highway patrolman, crosses paths with Milena when she is found to be working as a nurse in a very shady 'school'. This 'school' and its 'master' create the conflict of the story and its very disturbing. The school was a front for child abuse and human trafficking. I thought that Stoker handled the topic with delicacy and didn't make it graphic. Human trafficking is one of the biggest problems facing the world today and it happens everywhere! I thought the story was realistic in the portrayal of this terrible ill of society.

Romantically, you have a second chance story. TJ realizes what a huge mistake he made. He did try (a little) to find her after he left, but she had already moved. Milena did search for TJ because she had something VERY important to tell him, but he was gone. Milena is very forgiving and caring. I don't know that I would have been as forgiving as her and certainly not as trusting again. But, I'm a cynical bitch!

Overall, Justice for Milena was a story packed with legitimate danger, really deplorable bad guys, and a love story that will make you sigh in content.

 
  • POV: 3rd
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: second chance
  • Triggers: The school is really a place where men go to have sex with children. Child abuse, human trafficking and other ills are present but NOT described in any way
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series
  • Cliffhanger: not for TJ and Milena but as I mentioned, the book sets up 2 future books so you are still wondering what will happen there
  • HEA: yes for TJ and Milena with epilogue




Celebrating Love by Maryann Jordan, After the Dark by Cynthia Eden, Dangerous Witness by Katie Reus...then you will probably like Justice for Milena!
