Rescuing Sadie - Susan Stoker - Review

Sadie Jennings was used to being protected. As the niece of Sean Taggart, and the receptionist at McKay-Taggart Group, she was constantly surrounded by Alpha men more than capable, and willing, to lay down their life for her. But when she learns about a friend in trouble, she doesn't hesitate to leave town without a word to her uncle to help. After several harrowing weeks, her friend is now safe, but the repercussions of her rash act linger on.

Chase Jackson, no stranger to dangerous situations as a captain in the US Army, has volunteered himself as Sadie's bodyguard. He fell head over heels for the beautiful woman the first time he laid eyes on her. With a Delta Force team at his back, he reassures the Taggart's that Sadie will be safe. But when her past catches up with her, Chase has to use everything he's learned over his career to keep his promise...and to keep Sadie alive long enough to officially make her his.

4.5 Stars

Rescuing Sadie is a crossover title sharing characters from Susan Stoker’s Delta Force Heroes and Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. 

If you are not familiar with the Delta Force Heroes series, I would recommend reading Rescuing Milena first prior to this title, as the stories are interconnected.  I’ve read every title in the Delta Force Heroes series, and I’m also familiar with Ms Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series, so I was quite eager to read Rescuing Sadie. 

Rescuing Sadie features Sadie Jennings and Chase Jackson, both characters have appeared in Rescuing Milena so I was quite familiar with them.  Chase is an Army Captain, an alpha to the core, intelligent, strong, capable, protective and sexy.  He’s very honorable and has an incredibly strong work ethic. 

Sadie is the perfect match for Chase.  She’s loyal, determined, selfless, compassionate and brave.  Whilst he can come across as being a tad over protective she’s doesn’t let it control her actions.  She’s not afraid to speak her mind and is quite feisty, strong, resilient and confident.

The attraction and chemistry Sadie and Chase feel is mutual and quite intense.  Although this is a quick, fast paced novella length read it doesn’t lack for suspense, intrigue and drama. I love that so many of the previous Delta Force heroes and their partners appear throughout the storyline. 

Another engaging and entertaining read from Ms Stoker and I look forward to seeing which hero she will feature next.

New York Times, USA Today, #1 Amazon Bestseller, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Tennessee where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last eighteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, Indiana, and Texas. She's married to a retired Army man (and current firefighter/EMT) who now gets to follow her around the country.
