Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "G ...more

Ghost knows that he should stay away from Rayne. He's a top secret Delta commando and ties are dangerous. But when she agrees to his one night only and no attachments plan, he can't ...more
This is the first book I have read by Susan Stoker. Rescuing Rayne is also the first book in the authors new Delta Force Heroes, series, and while I found it in the main enjoyable, there was one point that I didn’t 100% feel needed to be played upon as much as it was.
Things were going really well up to around the halfway point. I knew when I started reading that the book partially would focus on the capture and then rescue of Rayne, that really wasn’t the problem, ...more

Rescuing Rayne (Book 1)
Rescuing Rayne is the first book in Susan Stoker's new Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book will be a stand-alone and doesn't have to be read in order.

But when his flight home gets delayed until the next day, Ghost and Rayne spend the day exploring the city. Unfort ...more
There could have been more action, but I'm an action junkie so take that criticism with a grain of salt.
Also, there was a lull in the book when the MC's are separated, but it was gearing up for the good stuff!
What I liked about the way Susan Stoker wrote this?
Typically after the climax, authors end the story shortly thereafter. However, Susan did not. I was exci ...more
I've tried a couple of times with Susan Stoker, but her books are just not my jam. I don't know how to say it other than she writes very traditional heroes and heroines. The H is always a no-relationship kind of guy who swears he isn't a romantic, and that the women he has one-night stands with understand the score. The heroine has never had a one-night stand and wants to find true love. (Is there a MadLibs-style book out there that authors are using to write their books? Because ...more
From the beginning, you felt the anticipation and build up and connection between Rayne and Ghost. Even though their relationship began as a "one night stand" - Susan wrote it so that you definitely felt the "more" that they did, even if Ghost was just too stubborn for his own good the next morning. Shoot, I even felt abandoned the next morning! But how they stay ...more
I was torn over this rating. I enjoyed the story. It was pretty good, until the hero abandoned her with a lame note. In general, I like my heroes to have a set of balls, and I just do not enjoy when they do not. Now he definitely pulled it together after some serious "girl like" counseling from his badass Delta and Seal brothers (which was super weird). But he did not go after her. She was set in his path. So it is hard for me to feel the love, when I know that he should have never gone ...more
Ghost and Rayne’s story takes place over a long period of time, they first meet and then reconnect months later. The initial meeting I really enjoyed, there were no expectations, they had fun and enjoyed their moment in time. Their one night stand was passionate and when he leaves broke my he ...more
I have tried to get through Susan's books in the past because I see these 5 star reviews. I thought "Maybe these are her first books, let me try something new"....
The writing is repatative, switches POV each paragraph, with lots of unnecessary words. And all of her characters are the same person with a new name. It just is missing....something.
Even the sex scenes the dialogue is weird, and there is too much filler. It just isn't well balanced.
I ended up not being able to make myself finish the ...more
I only gave it 2 stars because I liked the begining. Unfortunately it couldn't hold this level through the end. The more I learned about Ghost the more I disliked him...
“The scars will fade, but, Rayne, the scars only show the world how tough you are.”
I can already tell that I will need to read this whole series! I think I have a new addiction and it’s called Delta Force Heroes!

It was great to see Ghost get the lecture from Wolf, someone who had been there, done that with a woman. Better was that he did it around all of Ghost's teammates and they agreed with him. Rayne took the truth of Ghost's life pretty good and started looking ...more

Rayne is sweet, spunky and somewhat of a realist with a romantic heart and a touch of naiveté. She loves the idea of love, but knows that fairytale endings don’t always come true. But though she is sweet, she has a spine of steel. Ghost surprised me. He is a soldier to the core a ...more
