Keeping her safe from a deadly cartel might be the easy part of our relationship…

As a former NAVY SEAL and Guardian, rescuing Isabelle LaCroix was my job.

Falling for her was not.

But that didn’t stop me.

Boy, did I fall hard.

Just my luck… Izzy isn’t looking for happily ever after. Especially not with a guy like me. She’s got big dreams, and she’s as strong, smart, and indepe

Isabelle and Booker are a perfect match. She's outspoken and takes no crap and wants to be her own person. Her brothers sure know how to get under her skin and I like her mother. When she's kidnapped, Booker will stop at nothing to get her back. I am concerned about Forest and what's wrong with him. There's plenty of action, suspense, intrigue and daring escapes. HEA for now. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. ...more

Booker and Isabelle’s story. Isabelle is recovering form the kidnapping during her work in Nicaragua. With her 4 protective brothers and her parents.what happens next is what you should read. Suspense to the max. Heart breaking and heart stopping. I read until late in the night. I absolutely recommend this book to anybody who loves romantic suspense.

This is a fast paced, very enjoyable and captivating book. Isabelle, (Izzy to all but Booker), is a bit of a handful, doesn’t take orders well and is determined to make a difference in the world. Her overprotective, macho brothers are forever trying her last nerve with their obnoxious antics and attitudes. She joined Doctors Without Borders to help make a difference and partly to be free from her brothers. She was kidnapped in Nicaragua along with her friends and colleagues and was rescued by SE ...more

Rescuing Isabelle

"Hang on, Isabelle. I’m coming for you." - Booker

"Mom leans over to Dad, and the two of them kiss. It’s brief, there and gone before I realize it, but what a tender kiss it is. I want that in my life; a connection between two people binding them together forever. The kind of love encompassed by a gentle press of the lips. I want a love that transcends time, and I want to be a part of affection that lasts a lifetime." - Isabelle

Wow, my kindle just went up in a huge inferno with the chemistry which is Bookers and Isabelle's. Izzy has already been rescued once by the Bravo team, and is now a member of the Guardian Hostage Rescue Specialists in their medical facility. Booker, (Bravo 2), is insanely hot and constantly pushes Izzy's buttons, which results in a love/hate relationship, full of arguing and constant sparring, until Izzy decides to go home to her family and get some respite. Meanwhile, the Guardians have been wo ...more

Booker Holloway was one of the Bravo team members there to help rescue the hostages and most of their doctors. Since then, he and Isabelle have feelings for each other but she has ...more

Rescuing Isabelle is the story of Bravo Two (Booker) and Isabelle who we meet in Rescuing Angie. As with other Ellie Masters books you don't have to read the first book in the series but trust me, you won't be disappointed getting to know Bravo!

Izzy and Booker have a clear attraction but seem to be like oil and water, always fighting. Booker reminds Izzy too much of her over protective brothers and Booker doesn't know how to be anything other than who he is.

Loved this great entertaining military romance. Fantastic and rather delicious characters, sexy encounters, great action sequences to protect and save loved ones and enough sass from Isabelle to really provide entertaining moments of great sexual tension. There was a balanced mixture of emotional scenarios throughout the storyline to keep me entertained and and focused to finish this truly fantastic read. Noticing this is book two in the series and not having read the first book I didn't feel lo ...more

Ellie Masters has a new team of Guardians on duty and their stories are ready to be heard. Bravo Team has been furloughed, but now they are back and they are bringing the suspense and steamy chemistry with them.

We met Booker and Isabelle (Izzy) in Rescuing Angie and now Rescuing Isabelle just continues on with that story. It was easy to tell that Booker had a soft spot for Izzy when they met but Izzy took her time warming up to Booker's brand of possession and protection. She's had enough protec

Isabelle LaCroix or Izzy to her friends is a pharmacist. She grew up with four older brothers who are overly protective.

It is a knack that Ellie Masters has that she is able to bring humor into the most stressful situations, and Izzy's brothers (her name for them at least) achieve that here. She also has a knack of getting readers invested in her characters, and my heart ached for Forest; if anyone deserves peace, it’s that man – Ellie…. Please?
Rescuing Isabelle is everything you would expect from the Guardians, and this time it’s Booker and Izzy, Angie’s best friend since their abduction. But Nicaragua comes ba

I love this series, there's just something about these action heroes I can't resist.  They lure me in with their pure alpha maleness, I love their strength and protective natures, the way these guys snap into action all guns blazing to rescue those in need is the ultimate aphrodisiac. 

Izzy and Booker have intense sexual chemistry and they both know it. Izzy tries to keep Booker at arms length to protect herself as she thinks she has him all figured out. The witty banter between them was hilariou

Intense and suspenseful writing that grabbed my attention and never let up. Ellie Masters is an author I definitely want to read more of her books!

The storyline picks up after book 2 in the series which I haven’t read yet. I had a few moments where I wished I had read the previous book for more context to the situations being discussed or referenced by the characters. As you will see by my 5-star rating this didn’t prevent me from loving this story.

This is book 2 in the Bravo Team Series, it is fast paced and full of action and suspense!
This is Isabelle (Izzy) and Bookers story. Theses two have some intense chemistry from the start, but keep butting heads at every turn.

From arguments full of sexual tension to a standoff to a kidnapping and then a rescue, this action-packed story has it all. Yet another great read by Ellie Masters. The chemistry between Booker and Isabelle is explosive to say the least. You can feel it in every interaction they have. Booker is overprotective and overwhelming like her brothers, the Dingelberries, whom we met in Rescuing Angie. Everyone is telling Isabelle what she should do. She wants to stand on her own and show her fierce inde ...more

This book has all the feels. Funny, aggravating, terrifying, anxiousness, military grade testosterone, swooning.
I've probably said it before, but this author amazes me with her descriptive attention to details, making you feel like you're in the moment with the characters and just as in awe of Mitzy's magic. And her electronics, too. I enjoyed that we had already met Isabelle and Booker in GHRSBT #1. I loved the banter between Isabelle and Booker, but I especially loved the rescue. (That's not a

Izzy and Booker light up the pages. This story focuses on Bravo 2 - Booker. In Bravo 1 Izzy and Angie were kidnapped from their Doctors without Borders assignment. Now Izzy is becoming a Guardian as their pharmacist.

Those she was rescued from in story #1, haven’t forgotten her. As danger scalates, and includes risk to her family the Bravo team jumps into action.

These stories are in-depth, complex, and emotional. You really get to know the characters, and the whole team. A

More drama for and around The Guardians
Booker, Bravo 2, has his eye on Izzy and determined to get her. Booker is bossy and overly protective which grates with Izzy because her four brothers are the same.
She is a pharmacist and after being rescued by the Guardians has been offered a job. She is independent, tendency to be bullish in arguing with Booker and though she is greatly attracted to him, is definitely deliberately annoying him.
Her independence is wearing at times, because she considers

Chapter two in this new series of Guardian Hostage Rescue - Bravo Team Book Two. Sparks fly between Isabelle and Booker. They just rub each other the wrong way, or Booker can't help himself. He likes to get her motor running. Recommending that they belong together, he gets advise to not go guns blazing, but his response is fabulous, "You're basically telling me not to breathe. I'm a protector at heart." Loved her family, the Dingleberries and totally swoon worthy when Booker interacts with her m ...more

Booker has wanted a relationship with Isabelle since he was part of the Bravo team who rescued Abbie and her from a cartel, but they always seem to be in a state of verbal warfare. Izzy decides to spend some time with her family on their Texas ranch, but then the Guardians discover that people are still after her. Can Brooker and the team get there in time to keep her safe?

Izzy is a strong character who doesn't want to be controlled by her family or Brooker, but can she make a relationship work

Bravo Two, Booker has had a crush on Isabelle since he assisted in her rescue with her friend Angie. Izzy loved her job with Doctors without Borders because it was one way to get out of her small town and away from her over protective brothers, lovingly named the Dingleberries. She's attracted to Booker, but he seems just as over protective as her brothers so instead of giving into the attraction she fights him at every turn. I loved her interactions with Booker and her family. When she's once a ...more

Rescuing Isabelle is the 2nd book for Bravo Team and continues the suspense plot while telling Booker's and Isabelle's story. Their tug-of-war is entertaining, their verbal battles witty and fun while the chemistry is leaping of the pages. Not only do we get to re-visit Angie and Brady, but also meet up with Isabelle's family in Texas. I'm partial to Texans anyway, but you just have to love those guys!
