    ***4.5 ‘#TeamNathan’ Stars*** Claiming Bailey was filled with all kinds of swoon worthy moments, not that I’m all that surprised considering we are talking about a Susan Stoker novel, but this one had more aww moments than the previous two novels and the dopey happy sigh happened many, many times. Add in a good dose of suspense and it made for a page turning read right up until the very add.Oh Nathan. I swear I fell in love with the man in ...

    First of all, you should be warned about some possible triggers. This book touches the subject of rape and we have an almost rape in the story. If you don't want to read about that, don't touch this book. I decided to change my original 4 star rating to a three because when the time came to write this review the first thing that popped into my mind was Joel and how much I disliked his character. I also didn't like the back and forth in some aspec...

    Anytime I read a series that has a detective, security, or some other agency, I'm expecting a lot of creative license, OTT alphaness, and hokey parts throughout. This book was so different. I was really surprised. Nathan is the tall lanky Anderson brother. He didn't serve in the military. ( I found this rather shocking, I expected the word "seal" written in all caps at least 15 times in the first chapter.) He's quite the self deprecating nerd. H...

    A nerdy, sexually less experienced man and a former gang whore collide in Claiming Bailey. Nathan is the geekier Anderson brother, more content to stay at the office and crunch numbers and do tech things. Bailey got swept up into the gang life at 14, but when she saw the effect it was having on her young brother, she ran. Bailey's life with the gang is difficult to read about-she was, for all intents and purposes, raped and physically abused. Nat...

    3.5 starsI found this book difficult to get into. Bailey and Nathan’s past abuse was..intense is the only word I can think of. There is dark subject matter Stoker handles with aplomb, yet I struggled to connect to the story. The romance was understandably slow-paced, yet written with enough nuances for Nathan and Bailey to bare themselves to the other literally- and figuratively speaking-later on in the book. Although the heaviness of the topic...

    Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:Claiming Bailey was WONDERFUL! Nathan our hero, is completely different than his brothers but his differences were something that I found pretty...HOT! He is soft spoken, sweet, not as muscular as his brothers, but smart and just as protective and wonderfully caring. He fit Bailey who is beautiful, tattooed, and who is determined to protect her brother from her mistakes that she made in the past. I found her to b...

    2.75 stars. This book did not really work for me. This is Nathan and Bailey's story. Bailey is on the run from her ex-boyfriend, the leader of a dangerous gang. He abused her and, when he started to do the same to her younger brother, who she has guardianship of, she took him and ran. Now she is hiding out in a small town, hoping her past doesn't catch up to her. Nathan runs a security company with his triplet brothers. They are big, strong men, ...

    This was the third book in this series..Aaand I have to say I was a little let down, maybe it was that I was excited and probably set myself up expecting more. I had liked Claiming Alexis and was intrigued by Nathan actually all the brothers but, since he was the quiet one ad not a fighter as the other two I wanted to see how he would be able to take care of someone, especially with her background. So as I mentioned I set myself up. I didn't get ...

    Before I say anything about the book, I want to say that how Susan Stoker described the issues that befell Bailey is spot on, we all have done some things we are not proud of, but this gal had more courage then a lot of people I know, all she had to do is to let go of her past and live for the present and future.Bailey Hampton decided to do whatever she could do to keep herself and her brother safe from the gang Inca Boyz gang. Even if it meant t...

    Wow!!! An amazing story of love, courage, and strength!!! Bailey got herself hooked in a gang at an early age. She was looking for acceptance and guidance. Unfortunately, she ended up in the wrong one. When the leader, Donovan, started dragging her little brother into bad things, she knew they needed to escape. Nathan may be a triplet with Blake and Logan, he was nothing like them. He was the geek while they were the muscles and he was fine with ...

    I think Nathan has got to be my favourite brother out of this triplets. I kind of dig that Susan Stoker made him Star Wars loving nerdy geek, I also appreciate that he's not all buffed with six-packs and abs of steel like his brothers. He's lanky and slender but with some muscle definition ... so hurry for the regular looking guys! I also like Bailey ... I kind of like her more than the previous 2 heroines. How gratifying is it to have an author ...

    Claiming Bailey a 5 star read!!!This book has checked all the boxes great characters, romance, intrigue, loyalty to family, and one of the best HEA endings of 2017. Susan Stoker rules when it comes to difficult relationships being built on heartache and pain. Her character development is so detailed and intense you can't help but love the heroes and truly dislike the bad guys. In Claiming Bailey you have 3 main characters all with hurt and pain i...

    Last book in the series, or so I thought. Well the geeky Anderson brother manages not only to find the elusive Bailey, but also charm his way into her good graces. It was an intense book with Bailey dealing with a number of self esteem issues stemming from her time with the Gang of Inca Boyz. Her relationship with her brother, Joel comes across as very true and vulnerable. Nathan helps her deal with everything from her own negative self talk to p...

    Intensely GoodLove Bailey & Nathan! From their first meeting, the sense of friendship is clear. The way they fall in love made me smile...even while Bailey's painful past brought me to tears. Her brother's role in her putting herself back together, & Nathan's role in helping them both heal, highlight the sense of family. And the surprises at the end... LOVED IT!!! : )

    Soooo Awesome!I was a little skeptical about Bailey from the last book and the history of the Inca boys made me wonder. Susan did a fantastic job creating a woman who made a teenage angst mistake and grew up and made better choices when it was time. Nathan could not have been a more wonderful match for Bailey. He is a math geek and she is an auto mechanic. Yet they have a respect for each other many couples can learn from. Bravo Susan! Another fa...

    "Claiming Bailey" by Susan Stoker. This is book three of the Ace Security Series. Finally, we get Nathan's story. I love Nathan - he's such a nerd but he's oh so sexy too. I liked Bailey too. Despite her past, she is a good person and her and Nathan are so sweet together. Ms. Stoker brings the story to life and creates such emotions and drama that keeps the reader turning each page eagerly. Having read the first two books of the series and truly ...

    This book melted my heart and made me smile with overwhelming joy at the same time. I absolutely adored Nathan and Bailey, throw in Joel and the main characters were off the charts amazing. This book hit a lot of chords for me personally and these characters felt like good friends talking directly to me about not letting the past define who I am today. I needed to hear that (or read it at any rate). I frequently learn new things from Susan Stoker...
