Summary

Love is a life-and-death risk for the Mountain Mercenaries in New York Times best-selling author Susan Stoker’s explosive series of alpha heroes, hot action, and hard passion....

Ever since his rescue op off the Pacific Coast, Mountain Mercenary Gray Rogers hasn’t been able to forget his latest “job” - Allye Martin. Any other woman would have panicked during a rescue, but the wily dancer kept her cool - even after being kidnapped by an elusive human trafficker. And Gray couldn’t be happier when a grateful Allye follows him home to Colorado Springs.... For Allye, finding sanctuary in the arms - and bed - of the former Navy SEAL is only temporary. People are disappearing off the streets of San Francisco, victims of the same underground trade that targeted her, and Allye could be the key to dismantling the entire operation. She’s willing to do anything to bring them down. Gray isn’t - for good reason. But you don’t say no to a tough girl like Allye who refuses to play it safe. Now Gray is risking more than ever before. The Mountain Mercenaries have his back. But is it enough to keep the woman he loves out of harm’s way?

A Great new series!

I loved this! and listened to it all nearly in one day.

Gray and Allye made a lovely couple. The way they bonded during her rescue at the beginning of the book was funny, cute, heartwarming and had me glued tot he story. I was invested in both of the them from the get go and couldn't put the story down.
I can't wait to read the second book in the story.

Narration was very good and the characters all very well performed.

a good read

Defending Allye is the first book in the in the Mountains Mercenaries series. I don't think this one grab me as much as her others in the Ace security series. The story Gray and Allye's story starts slowly and things happened really slowly throughout the book. All in all this story was interesting. I will continue to read the others in the series to see if they get better. I still love her books so I hope the others will be more gripping

SADISTIC PERIL

Sadism not a romance make. The ex-army, SEAl, warrior with romance is a new genre to explore further.

Loved reading defending Allye

I loved listening to this book and how the story evolved, it was pure escapism and the narration so well done with different voices for each character.

My favorite so far.....

I like this book. I’ve listened to a few of her books and enjoyed this story and narration the best. I really like the women characters in her books, they are all real.
I’ve read some of the other reviews and all I have to say, is if you’re looking for a totally realistic story line, then romance novels aren’t for you. Also, some of the reviews say that the men in these books are a little too Neanderthal, macho, and dominating. Of course they are, they’re all Special Forces! But all the men treat the lead female character with respect and I appreciate that.
This book does have some explicit sex in it, but again, it’s a romance novel so don’t expect anything more.
It’s a good story line and it is the first in a series. If you like romance novels and a good adventure story rolled into one....you will enjoy this book.

Eh, it's ok.

All the men seemed to be a little neanderthal-ish.
The book moved along slowly. It seemed the team seamed to be good at what they did, but only in the beginning and the end.

Storyline ok.. writing was horrible

got through the whole thing because the storyline kept you wanting to know what would happen. the sex writing could be alot more intellectual. Dont get me wrong, I love good sex scenes, 50 Shades is one of my favorites, if written well but unintelligent wording is just laughable for a suspense romance.

Not my style ....TMI

I prefer a little more adventure and less sexual details. It all starts to sound the same after awhile, so I skipped over most of it.

Meh

I finished it but probably won't listen to any more books in the series. One of the traits of the heroine Allye was that she was always rolling her eyes. Our hero Gray found her "sassiness"appealing. In response I rolled my eyes every time there was a descriptive sex scene.

Not a bad start to another badass series

Allye has been kidnapped. She’s not sure by whom or why, but it’s her lucky day that a savior appeared out of nowhere. Gray is on a mission to bring down a human trafficking ring and while following a lead he comes face to face with a beauty that wasn’t supposed to be there. While saving her is a given, he isn’t prepared for how much he will want to protect her and keep her safe. Unfortunately, the one man who paid for her to be his won’t stop searching for her and killing anyway in his way.

I enjoyed the book and it’s an excellent start to the series. The only issue I had was how could Allye go back to her life while the man who had her kidnapped was still on the loose? This baffled me from the start. Otherwise, meeting all of the mercenaries and learning a little about each one is going to be a thrilling ride.

Defending Allye

This one was good! Allye was kidnapped and ultimately rescued by Gray who didn't realize she was there. On the way to pick up, she does not complain and actually is sassy and helpful. He is totally captivated with her. By the time they are back to shore he knows he does not want to give her up but she goes one way and he heads home to Colorado. Soon she realizes she is being followed and calls the number she remembers and she is transported to Colorado and lands back in his lap. Women start disappearing when the trafficker cannot get to her. These alpha men are so hot and capable, I cannot wait to see where this series goes!
