Rescuing Casey; Delta Force Heroes #7 (Series)
by Susan Stoker (Author)
This review is from: January 8, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
This is the first Delta Force Hero book that I’ve read and I honestly have to say it won’t be the last. I was engrossed in the world Susan Stoker made right from the beginning and even though this is the 7th book in the series I wasn’t lost jumping in at this point.
Let me see if I can help any other potential readers out there, like myself, make the decision to dive right in and enjoy the series at any point and then go back and pick up Stoker’s previous books because I know you will want to get to know all the hot, alpha men in books 1-6 just like I do.
The book begins right in the depth of Casey’s kidnapping. She’s been shoved into a hole in the ground, in Costa Rica, with no hope of rescue. She does everything her big brother, Aspen “Blade” Carlisle, ever taught her to survive if this situation ever presented itself. The ironic thing is, Casey Shea (they have different fathers, giving them different last names) never once imagined it happening. She’s nobody. At least nobody important. She’s an entomologist, a bug professor, currently in Costa Rica researching bugs with three students from her class. Even with everything Blade has taught her on survival Casey knows her time is running out if she doesn’t find a way out soon.
“She liked Beatle. A lot. He could tease her all he wanted. It made her feel normal. Not like she was a kidnapping victim escaping from the scene of her confinement.”
Troy “Beatle” Lennon has always known deep down that Casey was special. Working with Blade he’d heard stories, but it was more than that, he just knew that once he met her in person it would hard to turn off what he was feeling. He never said anything due to the distance separating them, but now that she was in danger he could no longer keep his feelings at bay. Call it karma or years of training, but Beatle was the one to find Casey and pull her out of deep hole she’d almost died in. From that point on he refused to leave her side. She was his and he was hers.
“Beatle froze at the sight of Casey Shea smiling up at him. At him. Right then, in the middle of the godforsaken jungle, smack dab in the midst of a rescue op, Beatle fell head over heels in love.”
Finding Casey was the easy part, leaving the jungle alive is another feat they must tackle together. Is what they are feeling part of the adrenaline rush? Will they both feel the same if they make it out alive? If they finally find the kidnapper, how will their lives work when Casey lives in Florida and Beatle lives in Texas?
“It was scarier this time because she knew exactly what was in store for her if she was recaptured.”
I never once felt like I was missing part of the story. There was plenty of involvement from the other Delta Force Heroes and their women along with a few teasers for future stories to come on the heroes that haven’t found love yet. The action was realistic and never rushed. I will definitely read another Susan Stoker book in my future.
