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!

Rescuing the Prince by Victoria Leybourne
Rescuing the Prince - Victoria Leybourne

 

Leybourne has some fun with the fairytale fantasy and makes it her own, without chipping away at the appeal. Rescuing the Prince turns the table on the fairytale we know, to create the one we want. Not only is there a prince, but a feisty heroine with a lot to say. Rhian and Cor want the dream. Yet circumstances send them in each other's direction as a necessity. A sweet modern intro to a charming author equals romance gold.

Rescuing Sadie
Rescuing Sadie - Susan Stoker Rescuing Sadie - Susan Stoker Pretty much what I expect from a SS book! Although, after all this, I really think Fletch, Emily, and Annie should move. That house has some bad juju.

Rescuing Casey (Delta Force Heroes) (Volume 7)
Rescuing Casey (Delta Force Heroes) (Vol... Rescuing Casey (Delta Force Heroes) (Volume 7) - Susan Stoker


Rescuing Casey harkened back to why I fell in love with Susan Stoker's books. There is danger and mystery along with the deep emotions. Those who aren't fans of insta-love will find this book trying though. Beatle loves Casey after just seeing a picture of her. Personally, I enjoy the insta-love. I like stories where the conflict is external and not between the couple. Many NA books are angsty because the conflict is internal and those stories get emotionally draining. Maybe because I am getting old? Who knows; regardless, I love books like Rescuing Casey where the conflict is external.

Casey is a professor of entomology at The University of Florida. She takes 3 students to Costa Rica for research and they are kidnapped. One of the students is the daughter of an ambassador and when she doesn't call her father, he sounds the alarm. Casey's brother is Blade, one of the men on the Delta Force team. Once he is made aware that his sister is missing, he and his team report to Costa Rica to save her!

The kidnapping and rescue were harrowing enough, but Casey then has to traipse through the jungle, injured, avoid dangerous jungle insects, and escape a second kidnapping attempt. Things don't get easier once they leave Costa Rica either! And throughout the danger and mystery of who kidnapped Casey, you get this building relationship between Beatle and Casey. Plus, you get more of the other Delta Force guys and their wives/girlfriends and more Annie! Rescuing Casey provides a dramatic rescue, a hidden threat, and a love story that is scorching!

 
  • POV: 3rd
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: military, brother's friend
  • Triggers: Casey is kidnapped and tortured; she is not raped (none of the girls are)
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an inter connected series
  • Cliffhanger: no; but there are several snippets to get you interested in the next few stories!
  • HEA: yes, with epilogue




Overwhelming Force by Janie Crouch, Mine to Save by Diana Gardin, Thin Ice by Maryann Jordan...then you will probably like Rescuing Casey!
