Book Review: Defending Allye

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?

Another winner for Ms. Stokes!  From the first page, I found myself hooked as Grey gets ready to dive into the ocean.  And the tension and pacing just goes up from there!  There is seriously never a dull moment from the very beginning of this action packed romantic suspense. And the best part?  This is the first book in this series!

I don't think the I have ever met a character that I immediately related to as much as Allye.  When she gets frightened, she gets snarky.  No freaking out for her.  No sir.  At least not until the emergency is over. 

I also found Gray interesting.  He is totally in control of himself and his feelings but Allye keeps taking him totally by surprise.  And his band of friends... No let me correct that.  His brothers are also intriguing characters that I am looking forward to meeting again.  

Actually we have met one of his brothers, Ryder, in the conclusion of another series, Ace Security.  It was actually through that series that I discovered Ms. Stoker's writing.  And I do have to say that if you enjoy unique, definite not run of the mill heroines and totally hot heroes overcoming the obstacles and dangers that seek them out, then check out her books.     

I do recommend DEFENDING ALLYE to any of my readers who enjoy a fast paced romantic suspense.  And now for the gentle warning.  There is a lot of sex and violence but you already knew that based on the genre.  Now what are you waiting for?  Go pick up your own copy.  Oh and the links below are for the Ace Security series that comes right before.
