My Review

I think I can never make a mistake picking a Susan Stoker book. I have read them almost all and I can say I love her characters, some more than others, and in this case, I loved Allye more than Gray.

Allye is a professional dancer than finds herself the target of a very dangerous and obsessive fan without even know it. Because of this she’s kidnapped, rescued and has to be watching her back 24/7. She’s strong, resilient and capable of keeping up with the badass ex-SEAL that comes to her rescue.

Gray left the Navy SEAL’s because of various reasons but mostly because he felt betrayed. He found a new job thanks to Rex and now he helps save peoples lives again. He and his crew are trying to take down a sex trafficking ring but can’t get enough evidence to kill the head honcho. When a mission of getting information turns into a rescue, things change for Gray in a personal way that he was not expecting.

Like I said before in this review, I love Susan Stoker’s characters, especially her female ones. There is not one that is incapable of saving herself, mentally or sometimes physically. Allye is not the exception, this girl has a mind of still. Her body may be fragile and her heart too big but she’s not going to be taken down so easily. Gray was a good compliment for her but I felt like he was a little whinier than her and I did not like that from him. I get he had his past to deal with but still, it’s my personal preference intervening here.

The writing was great, the plot, the characters, it was a fantastic first book for the Mountain Mercenaries Series. I would absolutely recommend this book to those that love strong females that get in trouble and the strong man that save them, finding love along the way.

About the Author

New York Times, USA Today, #1 Amazon Bestseller, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana.

She debuted her first series in 2014 and quickly followed that up with the SEAL of Protection Series, which solidified her love of writing and creating stories readers can get lost in.
