    Grayson Rogers from the Mountain Mercenaries is sent on a mission to gather information on a human trafficking business. On that mission he rescues Allye who was just kidnapped. When the man who purchased her isn't willing to stop going after her, Gray and his fellow mercenaries work diligently to bring this guy down. Our main characters, Gray and Allye are what really made this story for me. Despite Gray's toughness, he was incredibly sweet to A...

    3.5 starsWhile this was a good book, it was also deeply disturbing and not for the faint of heart. Expect some horrifying scenes, a merciless villain, and the possibility of triggers for abuse victims.When mercenary Grayson Rogers boarded the white slavers' boat, he didn't anticipate finding the victim handcuffed to the bed. After killing the men aboard, he freed the girl, Allye Martin, and ended up in the ocean. During the hours they spent in th...

    ARC received for reviewGreat first book to what is going to hopefully be an amazing series. Gray and Allye were amazing together and smokin hot. I loved how she spelled her name every time after she was introduced to someone new. Allye had a sh*t childhood which made her very strong. She was perfect for Gray. Now the bad guy, Nightingale, was a seriously messed up mo-fo, and had his sights set on Allye. Gray and his crew of course swoop in and sa...

    Check out all of my reviews at: https://www.avonnalovesgenres.comWOW! This first book in Susan Stoker’s new Romantic suspense series is intense, gritty, sexy and HOT! DEFENDING ALLYE (Mountain Mercenaries #1) by Susan Stoker has everything I am looking for in a Romantic suspense. The excitement takes off from page one with the alpha hero rescuing the heroine, but she is no ordinary, shrinking violet heroine. The villain of the book is pure evil...

    Thank the stars above! Defending Allye is a new series for Mrs. Stoker. Kind of. Sort of totally new, but it’s not. It’s sort of like shopping at Target. You know what you came in to shop for, but those dudes in the red and khaki just made a new display that catches your attention. So, you walk back to the front of the store and grab a cart. That’s what Defending Allye is. It’s a new display. And it’s awesome. I can’t tell you how exc...

    I've read quite a few of the books in this author's Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series and I really enjoyed those books, so I was excited to read more from her! I then saw this book on Netgalley and decided to request an ARC! I was really excited when my request was accepted and I started my ARC as soon as I received it! After reading, I can say that I enjoyed this book a lot! The plot had me intrigued right from the first chapter and it only to...

    The definition of ALPHA: Usually used as a term for a badass male who attracts women without trying. His superiority and pure confidence allows him to achieve success. He does not WANT, because he is the WANTED and BOY do I want Gray! Susan Stoker yet again wow's us with another one of her ADDICTIVE alpha heroes. Grayson Rogers loves being one of the Mountain Mercenaries, a group of ex-special forces guys that are sent around the world by their b...

We had gotten introduced to them in the last series she had (Ace Securities) and I enjoyed that series too, no you do not need to read it it was a just comment because I like Susan Stoker and I like reading her series hope you will to.

    ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~This is an excellent beginning to a new series by Susan Stoker. I will definitely be looking out for future installments. Do be warned though, this is pretty gritty in places, no hiding the realities of the ways that the team get their answers, or remove danger. Any fan of Stoker will recognise the ex-SEAL men who are prepared to risk their lives and use their skills to a...

    I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest review. This was a great start of a new series. Allye seems to have a pretty unlucky life, culminating with her recent kidnapping. Gray is a mercenary/ vigilante who’s been tasked with looking for a package at sea. Unbeknownst to him Allye is there. They grew close during the rescue, each sharing life secrets during the tricky rescue. They parted shortly after the rescue but soon met up again tr...

    WOWThis book is full of suspense, attraction and ultimately love. Poor Allye, my heart broke for her after what she went through. She was kidnapped to be sold to a "master" who was willing to pay any price to add her to his collection. The mercenary team was to intercept the money and hopefully gain Intel into the missing women. Never did they expect to find Allye on the boat. What starts off as a rescue quickly turns into so much more. I'm hopin...

    Awesome start to a new series. Already hooked. If I had to complain about anything it was the chapter lengths. Some were short while others seemed long with a lot meshed in them.

    I received a copy of this via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.There is something about a Susan Stoker book that just makes me feel good!I adore her sassy and layered heroines. I like that they are unique in how they deal with situations and that they are not cardboard cutouts. I also enjoy when they are sassy in danger, because who doesn't love sass, other than creepy people collectors who keep women under a wild animal preserve... but...

    DEFENDING ALLYE by Susan Stoker. This is book one of a new series by Ms. Stoker. Having read many of her previous books, I was looking forward to this one. Well, Ms. Stoker did not disappoint! This story tells the tale of Allye and Gray. I adored Allye. She's sweet and a bit quirky and a touch naive, despite having a bit of a rough life thus far. She made me laugh and smile throughout. Gray is tough and rough and uber sexy! He's all about protect...

    ***5 ‘Karma’ Stars*** Great start to a new series! Not that I’m all that surprised, but it still needed to be said. Defending Allye has all the things that I’ve come of love and enjoyed from a Susan Stoker book. Well written characters, a great family dynamic a good dose of smexyness and a mystery/suspense storyline that keeps me on my toes and turning the pages until the very end.I adored Gray and Allye. Gray is all kinds of honorable, p...

    This is the first book in the Mountain Mercenaries series that was introduced in the last book of the Ace Security series. This one is about Gray Rogers and Allye Martin. Gray is a mercenary that was hired by Rex after he saw some horrible things happen while he was enlisted. He is sent out on a mission to intercept a payment for a sex slave never expecting that she is already onboard. Allye is a dancer that was kidnapped right off the street on ...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.It took me a bit of time to warm up to the story. The being is full of action which was a plus but it also a dash of the ridiculous (the USB seriously?). On a mission to stop people smuggles, Gray, a former Navy Seal, climbs aboard a boat in the middle of the ocean expecting to find money being exchanged but instead he finds Allye. – Side note, the author does after a littl...

Grayson “Gray” Rogers jaded by a deployment gone bad now a former Navy Seal, working for the Mountain Mercenaries. His mission is to find and stop the man/group who is kidnapping women for sex trafficking. Allye Martin abandoned by her mother and in and out of foster homes believes karma is against her.

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This is a difficult book for me to review. It is an exciting action adventure but the characters feel under developed and I didn’t enjoy the writing style. The Mountain Mercenaries are ex-servicemen who secretly work to protect vulnerable women and children from predators. This story focuses on Grey, a former SEAL and Allye, the woman he rescues from a sex trafficker. There ar...

    Really enjoyed Reading this!I Loved the characters, and the book neither Started nor continued as i expected! The Beginning pulled me in straight away, in a scene i did not see coming. The situation felt realistic and the characters responses made sense.I loved how different the people included were, and by different i mean imperfect. I loved that the Main female was not portrayed as a “typical” beauty from romance standards, but was uniquely...

    This is a fantastic action packed romantic suspense that kicks off a new series from this author. Amazing characters, a fast pace to the story and superb writing make this a book not to be missed.The men of Mountain Mercenaries are highly skilled and determined to protect the innocent from danger. When a prominent San Francisco dancer, Allye Martin, becomes the obsession of a very powerful and dangerous man he has her kidnapped to be delivered to...

    Defending Allye is Book One in Susan Stoker's new Mountain Mercenaries series. Even though this series appears to be a spin-off from an earlier series, it stands perfectly fine on its own. I can attest to that as this is the first book I have read by this author and was able to follow along just fine. I do plan to go back and check out the Ace Security series, however.This book was jam-packed right from start with lots of action, drama, and suspe...

    Amazing start to this new series! Gray & Allye are perfect for each other! I love them together! From their hot and sexy times to the support and strength they give to each other. Allye is smart, sassy, fearless and strong; I love that in a heroine! Gray is a strong, sexy bada$$ former SEAL and lucky for Allye he is now a Mercenary whose team rescues people from bad situations. He rescues her from that boat to hell she was on and their time toget...

    This one is great start for a new series. I started reading and couldn't stop until I finished it in almost one sitting. I was that much hooked to it!It is a fast paced complicated and suspenseful storyline and I have to confess that I am weak for the men in uniform and ex-military, so this book was a very enjoyable reading material. It is even more greater that is about men who are getting into action to be there for the people that needs their ...

    I really liked the connection between Allye and Gray. From the moment they first met, there was something familiar with them. The more they got to know each other, the more comfortable they became with each other. The fact that their lives were nearly completely opposite didn't factor into the growing feelings between them. The bad guy was so bad, he was truly scary. The fight against him could only end up one way, and justice was served. An acti...
