DEFENDING ALLYE (Mountain Mercenaries Book 1) by Susan Stoker

Publication Date: August 7, 2018

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

6BED500B-38EF-4D33-8FA4-BFC0AAD006D4Love 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?

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 starsI liked this hot and sexy romance between Allye and Gray. He was all alpha to a sparky, Allye. Both are likeable from the beginning, even though the terrifying action began on page one as well.  It kept me tense and hot-and-bothered through the whole book. The sadistic and horrible actions of the human trafficker were a little too much for me, but I know that some readers are not bothered by that. I for one will be sleeping with the light on. The Mountain Mercenary Team are intriguing and had great interaction. I can’t wait to read the next one. If you like a sizzling-hot romance mixed with pulse-pumping action, this one is it.

CLAIMING BAILEY (Ace Security Book 3) by Susan Stoker

Publication Date: December 5, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

FFF946E4-FAC7-4FFA-8A8C-E3330CEABC50Opposites attract in the third Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.

Bailey Hampton will do whatever it takes to keep both herself and her little brother safe from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Hiding out in Castle Rock, Colorado, is only a temporary solution until she can earn enough money to get out of the state altogether. But when she meets handsome security nerd Nathan Anderson, she discovers a reason to stay and fight for what she wants.

Ace Security’s Nathan Anderson has always been the “numbers guy,” not the man any of the firm’s clients look to when their safety is threatened. But from the first time he ran into Bailey, she never made him feel like less of a protector than his brothers. Nathan was attracted to the petite, black-haired pixie with wild tattoos from the start, and by some miracle, she seems to return his interest.

But danger stalks Bailey and her brother, so it’s up to Nathan to channel his inner alpha and find a way to end the threat to their lives once and for all—and he’s not giving up Bailey without a fight.

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

I loved this installment in the Ace Security series. Bailey was reeling from bad life decisions that seemed insurmountable until she meets Nathan. I liked that he wasn’t some musclebound Adonis, but rather a geeky math whiz. It made him so appealing and loveable. It was smooth and fast-paced, and ended before I wanted it to. Tense, heartwarming and sexy – all in a nice package. I cannot wait until the next one!

CLAIMING ALEXIS (Ace Security Book 2) by Susan Stoker

Publication Date: July 4, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_9080Sometimes love is right in front of your face.

Nothing is more important to Blake Anderson than the work he does with his brothers at Ace Security. At least that’s what he thinks until he meets the fiercely independent Alexis Grant. The security firm’s new intern pushes all his buttons—and makes his temperature rise. But giving in to temptation might be risky business.

Alexis can tell that Blake has his doubts about her ability to commit. But while most people look at her and see only a flighty rich girl, she knows he sees much more. Determined to prove herself to Blake, Alexis jumps at the chance to work undercover. And when her case takes a dangerous turn, she puts her trust—and her heart—in his hands.

Now, as Alexis digs into the deadly secrets of a local gang, Blake will lay everything on the line to protect the woman he’s come to love.

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

I enjoyed this edition of the Ace Security series. Blake was super sexy (of course), but had a nice understanding nature that meshed with all she had going on. Alexis was relatable in a lot of ways, but a bit unreal in others. Perhaps a bit too much of a need for Blake to have to build up her self-esteem at times. Not that this detracted from the story, because I enjoyed how their relationship played out. The bad guys were a little one-dimensional, but made for a tense, fast read. It was my first Ace Security book, and I look forward to the next one – I was intrigued by the lead-in.
