Summary

Books 1-4 in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series

Justice for Mackenzie

Daxton Chambers, a member of the oldest and most distinguished law enforcement agency in the state of Texas, never understood why people killed. But this new case, where someone was kidnapping and burying women alive, is a whole new level of depravity. As a Texas Ranger, it’s his job to keep San Antonio safe, but the killer always seems to be one step ahead of him.

Meeting Mackenzie, and finding out just how perfect she is for him, wasn’t part of Dax’s plan...but he’ll be damned if he’s going to walk away from the most interesting and fun woman he’s met in a long time. Unfortunately, anyone Dax cares about is suddenly in danger. It’ll take every ounce of knowledge he’s gained from years in law enforcement to keep Mack alive.

Justice for Mickie

For Cruz Livingston, becoming an FBI agent is a lifelong dream, guarding the streets of San Antonio a calling. His latest assignment - infiltrating the Red Brothers Motorcycle Club - will help stem the flow of illegal drugs brought into the city by the violent gang. He expects the job to be dangerous. He doesn’t expect to meet the woman of his dreams while undercover.

Mickie Kaiser is refreshingly sweet, but her sister is intimately involved with the RBMC’s president. Cruz can’t afford to come clean about his double life without putting his operation in danger, but as violence creeps ever closer to Mickie, his priority becomes crystal clear. Cruz will do anything to keep Mickie alive...even if it means losing her love.

Justice for Corrie

Blind since birth, Corrie Madison relies on her other sharpened senses in her job as a chiropractor. Never did she imagine she’d have to depend on them to identify a killer. But when a man enters her practice, murdering everyone in his path, Corrie is the only witness - putting her directly in the killer’s crosshairs.

Officer Quint Axton wasn’t looking for love, or even a relationship, until he meets Corrie. She’s everything he wants - if he can keep her alive long enough to explore their mutual attraction. The threats on Corrie’s life are escalating. Surely a blind person is helpless against a ruthless killer?

Hardly. Corrie is about to prove that disabled does not equal defenseless.

Justice for Laine

Reluctantly taking her best friend’s place at a photo shoot, realtor Laine Parker expects to assist the photographer for the day...not drool over the volunteer model, Westin King. The Texas Ranger and real-life cowboy is hot-on-hot sexy, from the tips of his boots to the top of his Stetson. Despite her visceral reaction to the man, the last thing Laine expects is a whirlwind romance - but that’s exactly what she gets.

Amazing hot heroes and strong women

I absolutely love Susan Stoker books but this is my first time at listening to her audiobooks and I was blown away! Erin Mallon as always does a terrific job of narrating these stories, giving them life and an element of suspense and excitement. Susan's heroes in her stories are some of my most favourite main characters, they seem to bridge the line between alpha, strong, possessive with sensitive, feminist, lovable guys. Her female characters are never simpering, damsels in distress however much they have to go through they always come through it stronger and more likeable than ever. I would love to live in a Susan Stoker world no matter how dangerous it can be!

Great value

Book 1: Mackenzie and Dax are a sweet couple and the interactions between them are adorable. However, there's a slight feeling that all their personal issues are fixed due to 'true love'. The bad guy is interesting and the desperate search for Mack is heartbreaking. Mack's rambling is hilarious and Dax is a dream come true.

Book 2: This story is simply distasteful. I get that the behaviour of the MC members is horrific, but I don't need a blow-by-blow account of what they're doing. By the time I was half-way through I was skipping whole chapters to get back to Cruz and Mickie. Their relationship is delightful and this part of the story definitely merits 5*. However, the prize for the dumbest decision in history goes to Mickie and I found it completely incomprehensible.

Book 3: The best book of the collection. Corrie and Quint are wonderful characters. Corrie is a strong, independent woman and Quint supports her strength instead of focusing on her lack of sight and feeling it makes her helpless.

Book 4: This one is a short story. Wes and Laine's relationship is basically love/lust at first sight with no angst at all. Honestly, it's a bit too sweet, even though I do like the characters. The desperate search after Laine disappears is moving and Wes's despair is very clear.

This is a great collection to start this series!

Susan Stoker writes books that touch on social issues that can be very uncomfortable. She does this to bring light into the darkness that is our world today.

This series is about a group of First Responders in San Antonio Texas. You meet police and firefighters and the women (and men) they fall in love with.

Erin Mallon does a phenomenal job of bringing these characters to life. You always know who is speaking, regardless of there being 2, 5, or 15 characters in the scene. How she does this is pure magic!

A REALLY ENJOYABLE BUNDLE

What a great bundle of ‘badge’ books this was.. sexy heroes who instantly know what (.. or rather who) they want and don’t stop until they get her, quirky, strong, loving heroines with realistic bodies and entertaining and exciting plots that start off sweet but turn deadly as the suspense and danger levels rise. There’s a whole lot packed into each story.. and there’s different feels from each.. but I did have two favorites from the four. However, my personal hero was Erin Mallon who single-handedly brought a multitude of varied characters to life, gave impressively believable male voices and didn’t hold back with the inflections as each dual POV storyline hurtled its way to the intense climactic drama before its HEA ending.

Worth a credit? Yes.. this is a great way to package the series and I can’t wait to see if they’ll do it with books 5-8 because then you get a lot for just one credit.

Erin Mallon is the BEST!

~~~Book 1~~~

1) Erin Mallon can make most audiobooks better by at least 25%.
2) I loved Mack, but her rambling started to work my last nerve after a couple of hours. Still enjoyed listening and I will buy the other boxed sets.
3) Okay, back to Erin. Her male voice is so good I often forget it’s her.
4) Can anyone else hear a radio playing in the background? At first I thought it was my clock radio, but I’m listening with Bose QC35 noise canceling headphones. Max out the volume and tell me if you can hear it. NEVER MIND—The geeks of the interwebs say that my headphones are picking up low frequency radio signals.
5) Have I mentioned that I LOVE Erin Mallon’s work? Well, I do.

Where’s the romance??

This is the first series book I could barely finish the first story let alone the entire series! It was very vulgar no romance at all. Loved her other series but this one I’m going to have to return... sorry

A wonderful beginning..

Justice for Mackenzie

Dax and Mac make a great couple. She was sassy and goofy all at once. I was hanging by a thread when she was abducted..great suspense. This is book one, so the setup of all of the friends ha started. There are a lot of names and titles to keep track, but so far, I’m loving this group of law enforcement/ medical personnel. Great read.

Justice for Mickie

I did not like this one. The story was good and I get it, but the language was too much, Mickie’s sister was a pain, Mickie’s was too naive for her own good and I couldn’t believe that Cruz would put himself in such a position. This story was gritty and dark. I couldn’t wait for it to be done, but I appreciated connection between Cruz and Mickie and how his friends came through for him when it was all said and done.

Just for Corrie

Quint and Corrie were absolutely adorable. He was so enthralled with her and her abilities. Corrie gave us a heroine that was different than the others. It made you proud of her and how she took on her captures. It was a shame that her friends paid a higher price than she did, but she still showed remarkable strength and Quint showed that he was just the rock she needed. Thoroughly enjoyed the story, even with more of the harsh language.

Justice for Laine

Laine and Wes had instant connection and lust. They connected quick and deep and I loved it.

I couldn’t believe how careless Laine was, especially in her profession, but how else would we have had a chance to get the entire gang together again. This one was a quick read and equally as enjoyable.

For this who read any of the Delta series, Tex is here too. That man is everywhere.

Enjoy!

Worth the purchase!

The book is slow at first. But hang in there, the adventure is just about to begin. I finished the book in 2 days. I just couldn’t put it down. This is the first time listening to any of this author’s work. I just purchased 2 more from this series. I can’t wait to start them!

A full pack of goodness!

This was a nice collection from Susan Stoker. I loved all her stories---I have Mackenzie's ebook and audio, have read/listened to it several times 'coz, wow!

This one made me go through a roller-coaster of emotions, with Mac, then Mickie's story (I cried, dang it!). Corrie was like bite-my-nails good, and I loved how Susan Stoker showed us that courage and determination will always, always, triumph over doubt, insecurities, confusion and fear.

Laine's story was refreshing, in that her conflict was not necessarily man-made. Here Susan Stoker gave us a light read, yes, but it does not even take away from the rest of her Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series.

Lastly, Erin Mallon's performance was, and as always, perfectly spot on! Thank you for narrating Susan Stoker's stories!

love this series

The first book in this bundle just about killed me, I almost didn't continue but I'm glad I did. Susan Stoker pulls you so far into the story that it feels like your one of the characters so when something bad happens it feels like it happened to one of your close friends or family members. Each story will keep you on the edge of your seat but don't fear each book has a HEA. Erin Malone did a wonderful job narrating these stories which added to the feeling that you were there with the rest of the characters. I would recommend this to everyone.

Good story, but poor narration.

I loved the stories, but the narrator spoke to fast. Also, the male voices mostly sounded like a teenage boy whose voice was changing. It didn't fit with the big, tough hero image of the characters.
