Summary

When Aspen Mesmer asks a complete stranger to kiss her one night in a bar, she never expects to have an immediate connection with the man.

Kane “Brain” Temple knows he isn't the kind of man women look at twice, but when Aspen did just that after their explosive impulsive kiss, he's thrilled.

But even as things between them get serious, someone doesn’t want either to be happy, and is willing to do whatever it takes to break them apart. 

Shielding Aspen is the third book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Loved it

A real kick arse heroine battling discrimination in the Army. Meets her match with Brain who shows her just how a “team” should be. Match made in heaven .

Disappointed

I was so looking forward to this book, especially the aspect of a female medic in the army and dealing with a hurricane. Stoker constantly mentioned being a woman in a mans role to the point it became tiresome, which is a disappointment since I firmly support women in all roles of life. It seemed like it was the only goal/achievement of Aspen. But the ending was so depressing! I fast forwarded several times, which I have never done in a new release. I felt discouraged and down when the story ended and was very disappointed in Brain. I won’t listen to this story again.

Loved Brain & Aspen

I really enjoyed Brain and Aspen’s story and I loved that author Susan Stoker writes strong heroines in her books and this one was no different. Aspen shows she is smart, strong and capable of performing her duties in a field where men are mostly prevalent. I enjoyed the connection that Brain and Aspen had and how their relationship developed throughout this book as well as the action packed scenes. Virginia Rose did a fantastic job narrating this book and bring the characters and story to life. I listened to the audiobook all in one day and enjoyed every minute of it. The epilogue already has me anticipating future books in this series.

Great story and character interaction

Loved the interaction being the Brain and Aspen. A great look at the true life of gender issues both in true life and in the military.

Loved these two

Aspen and Brain were a great couple. Sure, at times, it got a little annoying because there was so much emphasis on Brain being (smart)..so much so that it is his identity..when he lost what makes him “him” he was lost and depressed.

Aspen on the other hand had her own issues being a woman in the military and setting “firsts”..needless to say, the hate was real for her and she had some hard choices to make.

I’m loving the series and how each member is finding their woman before being thrusted into a life and death situation. What I really liked was that Aspen wasn’t put off by Brain’s anger..it would have been a pain if she kept her anger longer than necessary.
