Sheriff’s Deputy Hayden Yates has worked hard to gain the respect and admiration of her fellow law enforcement officers. She’s succeeded so well, in fact, that she’s become just one of the guys. As her friends slowly begin to meet their soul mates, Hayden longs to be seen as a desirable woman, and not the tomboy she’s always been.

I don't know how Susan Stoker keeps these amazing books coming, but she does. After each one I say "That's my favorite!" Well, this has to be my favorite so far! Her plots always have substance and suck you in. I didn't want to put the book down AT ALL! Sleep? Ha! Not when a new SS book comes out!

JFB is all about Hayden and Boone. I was so happy to see that the hero was a mature male dealing with a serious issue that many people don't think about...male domestic violence. Susan wrote the story e

For those that know me Contemporary Romance is not my top pick in genres to read, but I do pick them up every now and then. I have to say this is my favorite from Ms. Stoker that I’ve read so far.

Hayden is a Deputy Sheriff. Tuff, strong, and an independent women who is more like one of the guys then a women, but she still is feminine.

Boone is a cowboy, takes great care of his ranch, those that work for him, and has a strong moral code of not hitting a women for any reason.

Ex girlfriend is a stalker and the heroine is a cop. Loved Boone the hero and liked how he made Hayley find her feminine side. She totally found her other half in Boone. I really love these series but I don't like her sex scenes for some reason. This one was okay but I don't feel the romance at all. It's just my old lady opinion so don't jump me. I just want more romance. I do love the writing style other than that. She is a new favorite author for me.
Although these books are nowhere near as steamy as I like, I can't help but being drawn to these stories.

Maybe it's the devoted heroes, or the action in the storyline. I can't put my finger on it. I like that the hero is devoted and looks out for his heroine.

I was a little apprehensive of this book because the heroine was the actual public servant (sheriffs deputy) and I was afraid she would be too alpha. Although she wasn't a "girly girl" Boone did bring out a more feminine side to her.

Wow, what a spin on her normal stories. The cop was female and the abused was a man. I loved it!! So different, but so good.

Susan Stoker’s Badge of Honor series is an integrated series though each book can be read comfortably as a standalone. These strong, sexy, modernized romance suspenses follow the lives and loves of hard-working Texas law enforcement and emergency personnel. A solid storyline, engaging dialogue, and some smoking hot love scenes zip you right along as we watch two strong, independent, slightly stubborn people fall head over he

Only women can be in an abusive relationship...well, that's what rancher Boone believes. He's tall, strong, a rancher used to hard work, and has strong morals. He's not a victim of domestic abuse...except he is. His ex-girlfriend, Dana, who refuses to accept the "ex" part, decides to show up at his house and create a scene. Yes, I said create.

Thankfully, Sheriff's Deputy Hayden doesn't accept the situation as is, which would be that Boone is the abuser. She investigates, asking questions of both

Barely 3 stars. I really liked the idea of the guy being the victim of domestic abuse in this plot - not that I want to see a man abused, but the fact that men can even be the victim is something that is disregarded all too often. It's nice to see an author acknowledging it, even if she does do a piss poor job of portraying it realistically and undermines herself at every turn by making the H a TSTL moron and the h an over exaggerated tomboy.

I've decided to check out a couple other books by Susa

Another great story.
Deputy Hayden is used to be seen as one of the guys and slowly starting to realize that she wants something like her other friends she wants to be loved. Coming to a domestic violence scene she does her job asking questions and getting the basics on the situation. Hayden isn't some rookie she knows her stuff and she knows that Boone Hatcher didn't abuse his girlfriend she is just an ex who couldn't grasp of him ending their relationship.

Reading a Susan Stoker novel is like sitting at a slot machine where you've just hit a jackpot ~ the adrenaline rush is fierce and wonderful!

The Badge of Honor series is an amazing collection of stand-alone books, with characters that will keep you engrossed in their lives, as if they were part of your family.

Justice for Boone is no exception ~ what's not to love about a tough cowboy with a 6'3” frame showing his vulnerabilities to a very strong, independent sheriff's deputy.

WOW! In this new book in Susan Stoker's Badge Of Honor series, we have an outstanding, sweet, tough female Texas Ranger who falls for a victim. But honestly I didn't see Boone as a victim. He is tough, protective, caring, sweet, kind, and just an all around gentleman and sweetheart. Hayden and Boone just made such a freaking cute couple! I fell in love with their romance and story.

This sixth book in the series is now my favorite...I absolutely love Boone and Hayden together. Ms Stoker has completely leaped over the high bar she continually sets for herself in her stories by creating these two characters who are so perfect together. Her method of storytelling continually brings out the depth of the characters whether it's with humor as she did with the banter between Boone and Hayden:

“Great. So? Do you want to grab a bite to eat with me? Are you hungry?”

She wanted to. Oh

I think what struck me about this one was how lonely Hayden was. Sure she had a great career, great friends, but they were mostly men who treated her like one of the guys and she had a secret girlie side that she hides, even from herself. Her longing and slight jealousy of friends that have found "the one" nailed how lonely she was.

The situation where Hayden first met Boone showed what a great cop she is. Instead of going with what things looked like, like her fellow deputies were going to do, s

Hayden and Boone were interesting, and I enjoyed the role-reversal that was at work in this book.

Hayden is a female police office, Boone is a cowboy who we meet when there is a domestic violence call at his home...but he is the victim, although it takes him a minute to see it that way.

This could easily have turned into a cliche, with the author trying to preach that women can be police officers and that men can in fact be domestic violence victims..and while th

OMG this was such a great book. The chemistry between Hayden and Boone is very explosive. When Boone Hatcher's ex girlfriend calls the cops, he never expected a female officer to respond. When Sherrif Hayden Yates is called to a domestic dispute, she never expected to find a sexy cowboy being acused of hitting a women. Things are not always what they seem, or are they? . If you love strong independent females and sexy domineering cowboys, you will love this book.
Loved how Susan showed a male abuse victim it's not very common but happens. I remember watching a experiment about the percentage of people stepping in and when it was a male victim was very low. So I really loved how she showed that. This has to be my favorite!

Lots of girls go naturally through a tom boy stage, often to spend time with an older brother or they just get on better with boys than girls. Others are very much girly girls, then you get those in the middle that like a mix of both. For Hayden form what I picked up in previous books I felt there was an underlying girly girl needing a chance to get out, it was buried deep and hadn't been allowed to come out up to now. She is seen as very much one of the guys within the groups of various law enf ...more

Deputy Hayden Yates notices something wrong when she enters a Domestic Violence call. Boone Hatcher would never hit a woman ever not matter what. He was in his own home and being accused of assaulting his ex girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend that could not get it through her head that she was no longer welcome in his life. The set up was executed well. Officers that don't look deep enough were ready to cart him off right away. Only one took the time to investigate and do the job that needed to be do ...more

Susan Stoker’s world is just freaking awesome. Another story of true love and the journey there.

Hayden has been feeling out of sorts since her friends are finding love and the feelings of loneliness are affecting her more than she likes.

While on a domestic abuse call that Hayden feels is bogus she meets Boone and feels drawn to him. Boone is reeling from the allegations of his psycho ex but connects with Hayden despite feeling overwhelmed.

Hayden is in law enforcement and is as dependable as they come. Boone is a cowboy with a crazy ex. Sparks fly when they meet during a call Hayden responds to at Boone's ranch.

I absolutely loved this book! I love that Boone can see through to the woman beneath the facade that Hayden presents to the rest of the world. He sees her need to be treasured for herself. Can Boone and Hayden survive the turmoil thrown their way and come out together on the other side? Read this book and find out!

I was super excited when I saw that Hayden was getting her story told. I have always been curious about her. I loved every bit of this book. I know it had to been challenging to balance the situation Boone finds himself in and his character. I felt like the author did a great job of tackling a tough subject with this book. I have to admit I fell more in love with Hayden after getting a better look at her past and how it made her how she is today. Hayden is amazing and may very well be my favorit

Hayden is a Sheriff’s Deputy who works hard and is damn good at her job, but she is one of the guys, so most don’t see the sexy, desirable woman beneath the clothes.

Boone is sex on a stick, a tall stick, but is attracting the wrong women. When one trys to set him up for abuse he finds one sexy deputy who stands up for him.

But two strong, independent, stubborn people are going to buck a few heads and that is exactly what Boone and Hayden do, but once they open up they can set the sheets on fire

Another hit from Susan Stoker’s pen!! Sometimes an Alpha man also needs saving. Hayden is a sheriff’s deputy and while she has everyone’s respect, everyone sees her as one of the boys… deep down she longs for romance and the love that her fellow officers share with their women. Hayden meets Boone when he finds himself on the wrong side of a domestic disturbance case, lucky for him Hayden is an exceptional investigator who seeks the truth and don’t take things at face value. Both Boone and Hayden ...more

Another winner by the fabulous Ms Stoker. I was thrilled to be invited to read this one early.
This is the story of Boone the cattle ranch cowboy and Hayden the cop. Hayden is seen as one of the boys and so insecure in her femininity. Then she meets Boone while on the job investigating the harassment by his ex.
Boone is the one to bring out the hidden woman and sweep her off her feet. So many feels in this book, I laughed, got teary and at one point thinking shoot the b*tch...not Hayden, you'll ha

I loved the bit of role reversal in this story. Hayden is definitely a great deputy, but you feel for her. She has always tried so hard to be the son her parents wanted, so much so that everyone treats her like one of the guys. Boone is an alpha male cowboy with strong beliefs in what you don't do with a lady - even if her actions call for reactions. Hayden and Boone meet when there is a domestic violence call at Boone's ranch. What follows is great. We get to see the feminine side of Hayden com ...more

Hayden & Boone! Two thumbs up! I can't even describe adequately how this one made me feel, but let's just go w/ HAPPY! Hayden is super smart, sassy, and TOUGH, and she's pushed her feminine side so far down that the 'tough' part is all her friends & co-workers see. Boone sees past all that, and the way he helps her to open up & discover that part of herself is truly a beautiful thing. And the way they are both so protective of each other... LOVE IT! : )
