Rescuing Rayne - Susan Stoker (Delta Force Heroes #1)

Published Date: February 9, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough. 

Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Ghost" Bryson hadn't planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost, right down to the tattoo on her back. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning. 

Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they're in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier. 

** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings. 

I think this is my favorite Susan Stoker book just yet. Simple yet beautifully written. Although majority of the books that Stoker writes often keeps you on your toes here and there but this is a book that is suspenseful all throughout. I personally loved this because although it is not something I would usually read, it gave me everything that I needed. 

The Delta Force Heroes series does brush up on the Texas Heroes but as said, they are stand-alones and each one is absolutely perfect with your alpha male, strong heroine, and beautiful background story. I think that I love these series because the characters are named after non-traditional names. Not that there is anything wrong with traditional names but you kind of get tired of hearing "John", "Brad", "Michael", "Lily", etc. It gets tiring if there are so many similar names within different stories and Stoker uses the fact of nicknames in the book as well. 

It gives a sense of mysteriousness and and eagerness to learn what is buried under each of the characters. 

Plus Ghost and Rayne will ultimately steal your heart away.

Somehow, Stoker can give you the heebie-jeebies of her antagonists and they drive you crazy because they are so disgusting. Like somehow, you have to rinse yourself clean but you can't rid of the feeling of wanting to finish the book either. So with a high 5 out of 5 stars for this book, I urge you all to start the Delta Force Heroes. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
