5 Brilliant, Shock Factor Stars!!!
I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
One telemarketing call can change everything, so it seems. Blade is desperate to see the woman behind the voice; however, Wendy is scared to break the magic. Can Wendy be open and honest with Blade, or will her past change everything?
Susan Stoker has written a seriously brilliant story, that although it gives the heroine and hero a different spin compared to many of her other books, it isn’t lacking action, suspense, or romance; it does however, have a huge shock factor, that even shocked me. This story builds up a lot of anticipation to the final book in the series Rescuing Mary, although on some level this book can still be read as a standalone.
I love the angle this story takes with Blade and Wendy’s story, it was a refreshing change and it didn’t take away from Susan Stoker’s unique writing style. She brings the characters to life, almost as if you are watching their story unfold on screen rather than on the pages.
Blade was a strong, caring, and patient man. He never pushed Wendy and he was always open about his feelings and true intentions.
Wendy was a slightly more complex character, and I found myself constantly guessing what her background story was. The relationship she had with her brother shared was an unbreakable one, Wendy had truly given her life to care for him and it was clear how much he appreciated her sacrifices.
If you have been reading the Delta Force Heroes series, you will have likely been awaiting Truck’s story, the next book in the series. Blade’s story builds up a lot of tension regarding Truck and Mary’s story, and wow, Susan Stoker did amazing!
If you love reading military romances, I highly recommend the Delta Force Heroes series, and would suggest you read them in ordering starting with book #1, Rescuing Rayne.
