Publisher's Summary

Opposites attract in the third Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.

Bailey Hampton will do whatever it takes to keep both herself and her little brother safe from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Hiding out in Castle Rock, Colorado, is only a temporary solution until she can earn enough money to get out of the state altogether. But when she meets handsome security nerd Nathan Anderson, she discovers a reason to stay and fight for what she wants.

Ace Security's Nathan Anderson has always been the "numbers guy," not the man any of the firm's clients look to when their safety is threatened. But from the first time he ran into Bailey, she never made him feel like less of a protector than his brothers. Nathan was attracted to the petite, black-haired pixie with wild tattoos from the start, and by some miracle, she seems to return his interest.

But danger stalks Bailey and her brother, so it's up to Nathan to channel his inner alpha and find a way to end the threat to their lives once and for all - and he's not giving up Bailey without a fight.

Nathan has been searching for Bailey for months. Fate intervene and sends Bailey to help Nathan.

In order to put an end to the Inca Boys gang, Ace Security needs to find Bailey. After Bailey sees and helps Nathan start his unreliable car, she hands him her card from the repair garage where she works. On the other side of the card he is stunned to see the woman has written her name, Bailey. Positive she is the one he has been searching for he takes his car to have it fixed by her. He had felt instant attraction towards her and that feeling increases each time they get together. He takes an interest in Jole her 10 year old brother also. The poor kid has problems from the time he and Bailey spent with the Inca Boys and especially under the terrible control of Donovan the leader of the Inca Boys. Donovan has been paroled and it's no secret he wants his property, Bailey and Jole back. Along with the rest of Ace Security they set a plan in motion. Nathan is the kindest most sensitive man just what Bailey needs. He is also a great role model for her Jole. Enjoyed the narration.

Solid addition to a great series

I really enjoyed Bailey and Nathan's story. It was sweet, funny, sexy and had enough twists to keep you listening, It also lets you see what is happening to the other characters from the previous books. I am a Susan Stoker fan and have liked all of her series so I was glad this one was no exception. You will get the most out of it from starting at the beginning of the series, but this is fine to as a stand alone. On a personal note, I got some ink in my younger years I was not proud of so I totally identified with that story point.

Healing Each Other

This was a really good read…all the way up to the very end when we have some great surprised. Nathan Anderson and Bailey Hampton both had early lives that left real scars on them…both physical and emotional. Neither thought they were good enough for each other…and yet they were exactly what each needed. As the Anderson brothers, Ace Security, continue to take down the Inca Boyz originally for what they did to Grace and Alexis in earlier books…but add to that trying to protect Bailey and her ten-year old brother, Joel. From being snatched by Donovan the leader IB’s. Honestly the best part of the story for me is how 3 people, Nate, Bailey and Joel become a unit of healing and trust together to survive their ordeal. The ending is such a surprise…never expected Nate Hampton nor Ace Ryder Sinclair to show up. Looking forward to the next in the series. 5-star worthy.

Stick with it if you’re a Stoker fan

It took until book 3 of the series for me to be fully drawn in. It’s got the Susan Stoker feel now, and this plot and character development is noticeably stronger than the first 2 books. I can’t help but think it would be a much stronger listen with a different narrator(s).

Revenge of the nerds

So much better than the first two! A smart guy without the alpha physic, a smart woman escaping bad teen choices; realistic reactions to the past trauma, and getting the bad guy without too much violence and science! And the name change at the end sealed the deal.

Nope

I can't even get through chapter 1. 100% vulgarity in the first couple minutes. No class or quality. Thus is not the first book I've listened to by this author and they've been getting more crass with each book.

Good story

We’ve met the owners of Ace Security, triplet brothers Logan, Blake and Nathan, in the prior books. Now we get Nathan’s story. Nathan has been searching for the gf of Inca Boyz gang leader, Bailey, ever since Alexis infiltrated the gang. Imagine his surprise when he accidentally meets her when she rescues him in a parking lot when his car shuts down. What follows is a good story of the nerdy Anderson falling for the tattooed, mechanic and former gf of a gang leader. Enjoyable but not as good as the prior.

Excellent book

Would you consider the audio edition of Claiming Bailey to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, so can't say whether this is better. What I do know is I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story has strong characters, excitement, tension, sexual attraction, romance, tenderness and humour - brilliant!

What other book might you compare Claiming Bailey to, and why?

It is similar to Susan's other series - different enough to warrant a read, but just as good.

What about Erin Bennett’s performance did you like?

Erin didn't try to do different voices, which rarely works. She read the story in a way that allowed her to disappear n the background, and let the listener become immersed in the tale.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were two moving moments for me - one when Joel talked to Nathan about his experiences with the ganag members; the other when Bailey realised she loved Nathan.

Any additional comments?

Just great!

I love this series

Great characters, diversified story line and women who find their own strength through men who respect them.
