Marrying Emily by Susan Stoker

Marrying Emily (Delta Force Heroes) by Susan Stoker

Date of Publication: February 7, 2017

Blurb

Few people know better than Delta Force soldiers that life is unbearably short and achingly precious. So Cormac Fletcher isn’t waiting one more day to marry the love of his life, Emily.

Fletch has already adopted her daughter, Annie. Now it’s time to officially make Emily his too.

Emily understands just about every woman experiences a few wedding snafus―but they’re usually not of the harrowing, life-or-death variety. Fortunately for her, a guest list full of Delta soldiers and SEALs will make this an event to remember―for both Emily and the uninvited guests trying to ruin her special day.

Marrying Emily is part of Susan Stoker’s Delta Force Heroes series. If you remember, Fletch met Emily when she rented out the apartment over his garage. She was already having a hard time making ends meet and raising daughter Annie. A disgruntled soldier was shaking Emily down for money and making her believe it was at Fletch’s doing. Luckily, Emily wasn’t 100% fooled and Fletch has smart little Annie on the case as well.

Now, Fletch has adopted Annie and he’s about to make Emily his as well. But it wouldn’t be a Delta wedding without some drama at the reception. And you’ll all just have to see how that plays out. It does involve a mighty fine performance.

Despite this being a novella, it was full of the action and romance that Susan Stoker is known for, so you won’t feel cheated here. It’s full of humor, love, and suspense, and if you pay close attention, you might catch a whiff of a new series to come. (And I don’t mean the new Ace Security debuting in March)

Of course, aside from the Delta Force guys, we have heroes from our Badge of Honor series and the Seal of Protection series, including my favorite, Dude. (If you have to ask why he’s my favorite, you haven’t been paying attention. Just sayin.) I can only hope there are more…ahem…commanding guys like Dude in future books.

Her Dominant SEAL is book 9 in the Midnight Delta Series about a group of SEALs who work together dealing with the bad guys and find themselves in love along the way. Our lucky SEAL in this book? Drake Avery. He finds himself returning to a place he thought he’d never go back to when his little sister calls him frantically in the middle of the night. Home.

It seems his good-for-nothing father has gotten out of prison and set his sights on his 16 year-old sister. So Drake decides to go home to protect her along with his other sisters. His father and uncle have a plot going on that may have something to do with the drugs filtering through town, and his sister Piper has something to do with it, as well as her teacher.

Drake pulls Karen in for his protection, and finds himself falling for her along the way. But that just gives his father and the gang more ammo to use against him. Nothing like a little help from your friends.

As usual with one of Caitlyn’s books, I couldn’t put this one down. Of course, the title had me hooked from the start. (After all, I am a knotty girl!) And while I wish he’d been a lot more dominant, I loved Drake. He was especially wonderful with his sisters, and his interactions with headstrong sister Evie were a blast to read. And I believe I smell a book coming with Aiden and Evie. I’m skipping some in this series because I’ve only recently started it, but for me it’s actually exciting because I truly love Caitlyn’s books so much!

This book gets 5 Super Sexy SEAL Stars!

A Cry For Help

It only takes one phone call and Navy SEAL Drake Avery is rushing back to Tennessee in the middle of the night. His sisters are in danger and he will do whatever it takes to protect them.

A New Twist

Now is not the time for a relationship, but damned if Drake doesn’t cross paths with a smokin’ hot kindergarten teacher named Karen Eastman. Miss Eastman has Drake thinking naughty thoughts when he needs to have his head in the game. He never thought he’d be hot for teacher.

Demons from the Past

Part of the hell of going home is that you know everyone, and they know you.  Just when you think you can trust someone, they can turn on a dime.  Old and new enemies are thrilled to discover Drake has a beautiful new weakness:  Karen.  But messing with the women in his life, is a mistake.  You mess with the bull, you get the horns.

EXCERPT

“Now, I want you to tell me all about yourself.  Starting with how you met my father, what kind of relationship you have with the sheriff, and how you ended up in this car scaring the piss out of my sister’s baby girl.”

“I’m not scaring no baby.”  

Drake held onto his gun with his left hand and with his right, he reached over the front seat and wrapped his big hand around the man’s scrawny neck.  “You wanna re-think your answer?”

The man wheezed.  Both of Fred’s hands came up to try and yank Drake’s iron finger’s away from his throat.  It was no use.  Finally, he gave up, his eyes bulging.  

“Nod if you’re going to answer my questions.”

The man gave the best nod he could under the circumstances.  Drake dropped him back into the front seat of his car.

“Prison.  I knew your old man from prison.  We done time together a couple of years ago.”

“He got ahold of you awfully fast considering he just got out three days ago.”

“Huey.  Huey called us.  He told us ole Norville was getting sprung.  He rounded us up.”  Great, it was a family affair.  His dad’s cousin Huey was in on things.  He’d always hated that fucker.

“Who’s us?”

“Us.”  

Drake punched him in the back of the head.

The man let out a loud yell.  “Are you trying to kill me?” he asked as he tenderly touched the spot where Drake’s fist had landed.

“That was a love tap.  Give me names.”

“I don’t know everybody.”

The guy was a moron, Drake wanted to hit him again just to see if it would jumpstart his brain.  “Give me the names you do know,” he gritted out.

“There’s Al, he did time for trying to steal a car.  But it was an unmarked police car a block away from a police precinct.  He’s none too bright.”

“That must mean he’s dumber ‘n dirt if you’re noticing.”  Fred looked confused.  “Go on,” Drake prompted.

“Leslie is a man, even though he has a girl’s name.  He don’t like it when we try to call him Les.  He got beat up a lot in prison.  I personally think he liked it.  Getting beat up, that is.  Then there’s Snake.  He’s with the brotherhood.”  

Drake thought he knew what he was talking about, but he wanted to be sure.

“What brotherhood?”

“You know, the Aryan brotherhood.  He’s a Nazi.  He says next month he’ll have more guys coming.”

Fuck.

“Why is Huey so hellbent on recruiting guys to help my father?”

“It’s the other way around.  Norville tells Huey what to do.  Your dad and his cousin used to own this town.  Huey’s been trying to keep things together, but Norville says he’s going to own the county with all his contacts.”

“How does the sheriff figure into all of this?”

“Snake told me that he doesn’t want to get his hands too dirty, he just wants kick-backs, so Huey’s been paying him and a judge off.”

Drake swallowed hard to keep the bile down.  Just what kind of family tree had he fallen out of?  And where the hell was Huey hiding out, because he sure as hell hadn’t been at the homestead last night.

“Where you from, Fred?”

“Kentucky.”

“This your car?”  Drake could see the man consider lying.  He knocked him on the same spot on the head.

“Ow.  That hurts.  It’s my aunt’s car.”  Drake would bet anything that his aunt didn’t know Fred had it.

“Fred, you’re going to head back to Kentucky tonight.  If I see your ass in Tennessee again, I’m going to kill you.  Do you hear me?”

“Huey’ll kill me if I leave.”  Drake set down his gun on the backseat, leaned over the front seat, grabbed him by the throat and used the thumb of his other hand to dig into the goose-egg on the man’s head.  He was gratified by Fred’s scream.

“I’ll go.  I’ll go.  Please stop.”  Drake waited a moment, then he felt tears hit the hand that was holding onto Fred’s throat.

“Give me your gun and I’ll let you loose,” Drake promised.

“I don’t have one.”  

Drake dug in harder.

“It’s in the glove box.”  

What a dumbshit.  He’d had his gun where it wasn’t readily available.

“Open the driver’s side door and get out of the car when I let you loose, Fred.  Then go to the hood of the car and assume the position.”

“I’ll do anything.  Just stop hurting me.”  

More tears hit Drake’s hand.  He released Fred and prayed he wouldn’t make a play for the gun in the glovebox.  Not that he’d have a problem subduing the asshat.  Nope, he just wanted Fred to be conscious and able to drive back to Kentucky in the next ten minutes.  

Fred opened the car door and was soon pressed spread-eagled over the hood of the car.  Drake leaned over the front seat and pulled Fred’s pistol out of the glovebox.  He then got out of the car and frisked Fred and found a switchblade in his boot.  

“Pop the trunk of the car,” Drake directed, wanting to see if there were any more weapons.

The smell of body odor assaulted him when the trunk opened.  

“My God man, haven’t you heard of deodorant?” Drake demanded.  It had been rank in the car as the man sweated, but the pile of dirty laundry made him gag.  

“I was going to go to the laundry-mat,” Fred defended himself.

“Just get home to Kentucky and burn your clothes, you can’t save them.  If I see you here again, you’re going to be the first one I target.  Are we clear?”

Fred nodded.  

“Say the words.  Are we clear?”

“Yes.  I’m leaving town now.  Can I have my gun?” he asked, proving just how stupid he was.  

Drake shook his head and pointed to the open car door.  “You’ve got one minute for me to see taillights.  Otherwise you’ll be wishing Huey was here.”

Fred stood there looking at him.

“One, two, three,” Drake started counting, and Fred scrambled towards the driver’s seat.  He hit his knee against the door.  Once again, Drake had to listen to him whine.  Fred gunned the car trying to get it to go.  It was obvious the parking brake was on, but that didn’t stop him from continuing to press on the accelerator.  God, he’d be lucky to make it out of Sevier County, let alone back home to Kentucky.  Finally, Fred figured out his problem and the car lurched forward, and he did a fast U-turn.  It had taken longer than the allotted time, but Drake always gave extra consideration to the chronically stupid.

The Omega Team: Cooper’s Promise (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Shadow Alliance Book 2) by Caitlyn O’Leary

cooper

Blurb:

Cooper Laughlin, a member of the Omega Team, has been tied up in knots by his best friend’s baby sister forever. Even though the girl is now a woman, he still feels she is too young and inexperienced, and needs to be protected from everything and everyone, and that includes him.

Brenna moved across the country to be close to Cooper two years ago, and despite her best efforts, he has kept her squarely in the friend zone.

reviewfbknotty1

When a stalker threatens her safety, all of Cooper’s pent-up emotions break free. Is there a way to keep her safe from both the stalker and Cooper’s own need to dominate?

I love Caitlyn O’Leary. As yet again with my knotty self, I was introduced to her books late, Declan from the first book in the new Shadow Alliance series was my first taste, and it was like eating a meal from a Michelin chef. (That’s kinda like Gordon Ramsey, or Bobby Flay good!)

Now, I’ve read this offering, a hybrid of the new Shadow Alliance series by Caitlyn, and The Omega Team from Author Delilah Devlin. (Of course, I went and bought those too!)

In this book, Cooper Laughlin is a member of Omega team. He has a little issue of having a crush on his best friend’s baby sister, and even though she’s 23 years old, he still see her as too young and experienced, especially for his darker desires.

Brenna has been in love with Cooper her whole life it seems, and she even moved her schooling to be closer to him. But after he says the wrong thing to her, she decides to move on. But when a stalker decides to become obsessive and turns from creepy to dangerous, Cooper finally realizes that Brenna may just be what he’s needed all along. Question is, is it too late?

Aside from this being a novella, it’s packed full of the uber-Alpha heroes that Ms. O’Leary is just so talented at writing, and Cooper is hot, sexy, and dominant, just like I like them! Brenna may be inexperienced, but she’s smart, sassy, and takes no prisoners. No-one is taking Brianna for granted! Just loved this Kindle World novella.

This is most definitely a 5 Star Orgasm!

Her Vigilant Seal by Caitlyn O’Leary

Hanging on by a Thread
Sophia Anderson takes care of everyone but herself. She will stop at nothing to keep her family safe. When she goes searching for her runaway little brother in a bad part of town, she becomes the one in need of rescue.

A White Knight
Navy SEAL, Mason Gault, faced many dangers while in the line of duty. No matter how bad a mission has gone, he finds solace in three things: His family, friends and the waves of the Pacific. When he hears a woman’s screams for help, he charges in to save her without a second thought.

A Dangerous Love
Sophia is burdened with scars from her past. Mason understands that empowering her spirit is just as important as protecting her well-being. As their love and passion soars, so do threats against her. Can Mason continue to be the compassionate white knight that she needs, while ensuring her safety?

reviewfbknotty1

What can I say about this book but WOW! I absolutely loved it! I have a thing for female characters that are down on their luck, in trouble, and end up in a situation where they need rescuing, (sometimes because they are hurt) by a hunky, alpha, dominant, hunk. (I said that huh?) Military is always a plus. We have that all in spades here, and Caitlyn O’Leary has made a lifelong fan out of me.

Mason is home after a mission gone bad. Sofia has been watching him surf on the beach, she has a sick mom, and a brother to worry about. Later, she ends up having to look for her brother when he goes missing, but her venturing in the worst part of town gets her into her own trouble.

When the tables are turned on her during her attempt to rescue someone, Mason saves her life. He ends up going to the hospital with her and taking her home the next day and getting to know her, but she thinks he’s to good for her.

Her attackers get out on bail, and they have her name. Can Mason protect her and prove she’s good enough?

Just LOVED it! Mason is one hot SEAL, and the rest of the guys on his team are going to be just as great to read about. This is one series I’m adding to my “MUST READ” pile.

Leather and Lace (Trident Security 1)

trident1

 

I’m finally getting to read a series from book one! (Okay, I’ve done it before, but not lately, as you can probably all attest to.) I’m already a fan of Samantha Cole’s, so I knew I was going to enjoy this going in to it. I’m glad I was right. Leather and Lace is the first book of the Trident Security series. It’s about a group of hot guys who work for a security agency that are ex-military,  are of the kinky persuasion, (Oh yeah, I need a bodyguard methinks.) and protect and defend.

In this book we have writer Kristin Anders who is writing a BDSM romance. She’s having hot fantasies about her character, Master Xavier, club owner. When she decides to take a break, she goes to an Irish pub for a drink. She sees 6 of the hottest guys she’s ever seen. When her computer fizzles, one of them comes over to fix it, but it’s Devon ‘Devil Dog ‘ Sawyer that catches her attention. He looks like her Master Xavier. Devon and Kristin run into each other again in the BDSM club that Devon co-owns. Turns out he’s a dominant. After a hot how-do-you-do, they decide on a week-end of no strings week-end sex. 3 days, then they part, but will they, or won’t they? And someone has it against the team at Trident. , can they find out who in time?

This was just an awesome book, and you can bet it will be one I will definitely read again. Very well written with complex characters and enough suspense to keep me hanging. I’m definitely excited for the rest of the series.

I give Leather and Lace 4 and ½ Hot Domly Orgasms
