Publisher's Summary

All defenses are down in the fifth Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.

Sarah Butler isn’t flattered. She’s angry and unnerved. She’s been getting intimate gifts from a man she barely knows. Nothing threatening yet, but there’s just a weird vibe she can’t ignore. Her recourse is Ace Security. Their solution: self-defense lessons at Rock Hard Gym with a personal, hands-on instructor. One look at the bearded, tattooed, green-eyed alpha is enough to take Sarah’s breath away.

Cole Johnson is definitely the man for the job. He’s eager to train her. Eager to get closer. And when it comes to Sarah’s instincts, Cole knows she’s not imagining things. He’s also not imagining the intense attraction between them - and his desire to protect her is growing. But so are Sarah’s fears, the worst of which come true when she disappears.

Enlisting the help of Ace Security, Cole will stop at nothing to find the love of his life…before she vanishes forever.

Abandoned by Chapter 5

Omg. This story was too perfect. Girl is being stalked, Meets Mr Perfect, he tells her that she belongs to him if they have sex ( mental abuse) also he wants to inpregnate her the first time they had sex. I felt like screaming. i literally had to stop my car to take it off.

Another Stoker classic story

If you enjoy a light fun romance, listen to a Susan Stoker story.

This is the last in the series so it’s best to start in order so you understand the other characters mentioned.

Good author, weak Heroine, overbearing hero.

I read Claiming Grace ages ago, book one in this series. I drive a lot, so I go through alot of audio books. I purposely avoided reading the next 3 books in this series, but I was going on a road trip, and did not have time to find another one, so I gave in and downloaded this book. I very quickly remembered why I haven't done the others yet. The author did a very good job, it was very well written. The narrator did a very good job, But I just cannot do the Alpha Male books. I spend my whole time rolling my eyes, saying "oh would you shut up already", or saying "of course", as I did during this book. If you do not like the books where the female character is week, cries a lot, and has the whole Pity Me attitude, you will not enjoy this. If you do not like the books where the man makes all the decisions for the female, she always thinks about if he will like it or not before she makes ANY move, and he calls all of the shots, making decisuons for her without consulting her, you will not like this book. I do enjoy the books were the male character is a good guy and he takes care of the female character, But not to this extent. I feel the main male character Was very overbearing, and the female was very weak. I dont enjoy books where they're in loooove within months time and wanting to start a family. Sentences like "Cole had refused to allow her" and "they'd probably fight, and shed probably cry 🙄 when things got crazy" just annoy me. This has nothing to do with the author's writing, she did a very good job, but if you do not like the overbearing alpha male books, you may want to skip this one.

Not for me

This story was quite boring and I didn't like the overly low self-esteem whiny at times Sarah. It got old. I found much of the story boring. It does have a good ending. The narration was good.

Another really good book

Another really good book in the Ace Security series. So glad Cole finally found his one. Sarah was such a sweetheart. Enjoyed reading this book, just enough intrigue, hot and fun.

Sappy and serious agenda driving

Gay adoption is something that all states should allow... period! This point is solidly driven home to the point of a bow-beating. Adopt older children and give them a loving environment... mildly pushed.

I do enjoy most of Susan's books and this one definitely has a unique premise; however, the extraordinary over the top instalove bordered on psychotic stalking and obsessive control. Hiring a person to teach you self-defense to protect you from an obsessive person who is after you, only to fall madly in love with another obsessive person was strange.

Be warned, at least 50% of this book is the H or h raving about each other.

Finding your angel.

Sweet story...Sarah was adopted and raised by a loving couple but lost them to a tragedy several years ago. Now she’s all alone...and facing a stalker. When she contacts Ace Security and they recommend that she take self defense classes, she doesn’t expect to fall for the grouchy gym owner. But Cole is everything that Sarah needs...can he save her from the stalker?
Good story.

Another enjoyable story

I'm a big fan of SS and, while not her best, this is still a solid and thoroughly enjoyable finish to the Ace Security series. Cole is a great hero and I also liked Sarah, although she's a bit too perfect to be true. The danger Sarah is in turns out to be very different from any previous stories and I liked how it was resolved.

One thing that annoyed me a great deal was that SS seems to have forgotten the sequence of events in Saving Felicity, as there are several references to Felicity being taken and needing to be found. If you've read/heard that story, you'll know that isn't how it played out!

EB's narration is good, but not great.
