Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Gh ...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
Ok, now, I liked this. Mostly the action parts. After the big badass rescue, it all became very soap opera-y.
I don’t like it when it’s over the top in terms of sentimentality, it’s just not credible.
Verbose speeches about true love coming from all those hunky Delta guys.. fine I can buy one or two but really?! Everyone is a love guru?
The relationship the leads had.. I didn’t buy it.
This book is good for its action. The romance and the over the ...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 was a quick and easy read. Rayne and Ghost had a insta-love type of romance with some suspenseful moments thrown in that added a lot of intrigue. I loved getting to meet the Delta Force team too and now I can't wait to get the rest of their stories. ...more

Rescuing Rayne is the start of a brand new series called Delta Force Heroes. Fans of Stoker's SEAL of Protection series will find an easy transition into this series. It also helps that a few SEAls drop in occasionally too. This Rayne and Ghost's story. Ghost is a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy. He isn't that way to purposely hurt women, in his eyes he thinks he is protecting them. He is a part of a Delta Force team. He knows hi ...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
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
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

Rayne, I loved her, she was such a brilliant character, she was strong and independent. I loved how she was the night in London with Ghost, From the very beginning I was drawn to her character. During the terrorist situation, Rayne is in the h ...more

Any of you that have read Susan Stoker is probably already a fan. Rescuing Rayne will turn you into a super fan. I seriously loved every word. It seemed so genuine and you just felt like the characters were real people. The story had a great balance of action, love, friendship and conversation. The characters were well developed creating that bond that only the best writers can create.
Ghost, a member of the elite Delta Force, has to keep the majority of what he does and ...more
Book 1 in the ‘Delta Force Heroes’ series. There are 9 books so far and each features a different member or hero of Delta Force. This was a free offer on Amazon and this is my honest review.
Rating MA: mature audience, explicit language, graphic sexual descriptions [soft porn], trigger warnings for violent physical acts, explicit descriptions of violent intentions… the enemy hadn’t raped her [yet] ...more

After less than 24 hours spent with a handsome, enigmatic stranger, whom she is sure must be a spy or a soldier, finds Rayne falling in love. Unfortunately, the wonderful man whose tender attentiveness has captured her mind and heart has warned her, up front, that all he can offer her is that one, unforgettable day.
Keane "Ghost" Bryson is a Delta ...more
I bailed at this point because I was just bored.
The initial scenes of touring London were just dull for me mainly because I live in London and it was just one big sight-seeing trip of stuff that I’ve already seen and is a bit boring for me. It just went on and on and on.
Rayne finds Ghost’s basic good manners romantic and r ...more
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
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...
