Defending Allye is my first full length novel by Susan Stoker, and a story I really enjoyed. I liked the suspense that was thrown in around the whirlwind romance of Allye and Gray. The chemistry they shared added a sensual feeling to the intriguing story and I thought the blend of everything coming together was done very well.
This is definitely a series I'll be reading more of and even might jump to the second book as my next read. All of the secondary charact ...more
While this was a good book, it was also deeply disturbing and not for the faint of heart. Expect some horrifying scenes, a merciless villain, and the possibility of triggers for abuse victims.
When mercenary Grayson Rogers boarded the white slavers' boat, he didn't anticipate finding the victim handcuffed to the bed. After killing the men aboard, he freed the girl, Allye Martin, and ended up in the ocean. During the hours they spent in the water waiting for his friend to come to their ai ...more
Our main characters, Gray and Allye are what really made this story for me. Despite Gray's toughness, he was incredibly sweet to Allye. That is almost the perfect combination in ch ...more
Discussing your life story while trying to stay alive and swim to safety in frigid water didn't really ring true for me either.

WOW! This first book in Susan Stoker’s new Romantic suspense series is intense, gritty, sexy and HOT!
DEFENDING ALLYE (Mountain Mercenaries #1) by Susan Stoker has everything I am looking for in a Romantic suspense. The excitement takes off from page one with the alpha hero rescuing the heroine, but she is no ordinary, shrinking violet heroine. The villain of the book is pure evil and sadistic. (WARNING for those who have problems ...more
Ornaments will come later.
Defending Allye is the first book of the Mountain Mercenaries series. It was cute and everything and I love the two main characters buttt some things annoyed me. For most of this book, Allye is basically the victim. I get that she was kidnapped and shit..but it was kind of boring.
I did end up falling for Grayson and Allye though. They were cute and he's like the alpha always looking to save his woman. I'm glad ...more
Great first book to what is going to hopefully be an amazing series.
Gray and Allye were amazing together and smokin hot. I loved how she spelled her name every time after she was introduced to someone new. Allye had a sh*t childhood which made her very strong. She was perfect for Gray. Now the bad guy, Nightingale, was a seriously messed up mo-fo, and had his sights set on Allye. Gray and his crew of course swoop in and save the day. Great epilogue and the teaser chapter ...more
Truly this is a 3.5 star-ish book but the last 1.5 hours was pretty intense and good. It felt like the whole book was leading up to the last 2 hours of the book.
The great thing about kindle unlimited is that you can get audio books for free too, so this is one of those books I had nothing to lose to try.
The narrator wasn’t my favorite. Her voice was fine, she fit the heroine because she sounded older, BUT she pauses way too many times. She reads at a nice pace, but she pauses too long in ...more
Defending Allye is a new series by Susan Stoker so you know I was gonna pick this up! All the men of Mountain Mercenaries are former soldiers who now work for the mysterious 'Rex' saving women and children from the clutches of evil. Its like Charlies Angels, but instead of hot girls, its hot guys.
Allye is a dancer who has caught the eye of a sick, demented guy who wants to 'collect' her. Seriously, this guy is messed up and if you have triggers, you should check out the trigger warning. Trust m ...more
Defending Allye did suffer just a tad from first-book-in-a-series-itis, but it wasn’t a bad case so I easily got past it. My main issue was with the backstory of how the Mountain Mercenaries came together. I ...more
Love is a life-and-death risk for the Mountain Mercenaries as it is for everyone? nahh we don't get chased or almost drowning in the ocean, but trust me, you will love this story, I dare not s ...more
I volunteered to read an advanced readers copy of Defending Allye an leave a review. This is the first book in the new series , Mountain Mercenaries .
This story takes off from the start and never slows down . It's a fabulous rollercoaster ride . This story makes you feel like your right there . It is full of pulse pounding suspense , action packed . I couldn't put it down . I read it straight thru . The story is about a beautifully unique woman Allye Martin a professional da ...more
This is a difficult book for me to review. It is an exciting action adventure but the characters feel under developed and I didn’t enjoy the writing style. The Mountain Mercenaries are ex-servicemen who secretly work to protect vulnerable women and children from predators. This story focuses on Grey, a former SEAL and Allye, the woman he rescues from a sex trafficker.
There are so many series about private security/black-ops gr ...more
What? Who is rating this book?! No. You read the wrong book or something.
If you’re going for “totally unbelievable” -(And bad, groan-with-despair-at-the-impossibility dialogue) fine. Five stars. If you’re at all trying to read a story that maybe, in some parallel universe, possibly could have taken place... no.
No no no.
I’ve read many books from Ms.Stoker’s other series: SEAL of Protection, Delta Force Heroes, Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes. I’ve enjoyed her writing. Obviously. But this first one in the Mountain Mercenaries series was a bit of a hot mess to me.
Why? Everything was over the top awful.
Starting out, Gray single-handedly invades a yacht in the dark with the purpose of gathering intel about a sex-trafficking ring. He’s badass, but also ...more
This is an excellent beginning to a new series by Susan Stoker. I will definitely be looking out for future installments. Do be warned though, this is pretty gritty in places, no hiding the realities of the ways that the team get their answers, or remove danger.
Any fan of Stoker will recognise the ex-SEAL men who are prepared to risk their lives and use their skills to address wrong, and any fan of Charlie's Angels will ...more
I read it straight thru . The story is about a beautifully unique woman Allye Martin a professional dancer and Grayson (Gray) an accountant by day and a mountain mercenary ex military alpha hero .

It took me a bit of time to warm up to the story. The being is full of action which was a plus but it also a dash of the ridiculous (the USB seriously?). On a mission to stop people smuggles, Gray, a former Navy Seal, climbs aboard a boat in the middle of the ocean expecting to find money being exchanged but instead he finds Allye. – Side note, the author does after a little while explain how to pronounce Allye but until we ...more
