Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestseller.

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.

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.

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.

Different but amazing in its own way!

I love this book more then the rest of this series. It is at a different speed then the others. My heart goes out to the "villain" in this book. I love how she didn't have the same rhythm of writing the way other authors do in a series that it starts to be easy to predict what is going to happen. This book wasn't as stressful as the others were and it was nice to enjoy.

I love this author so much. That this is my 65 book of hers and counting. I am so excited when new books of her come out. She is a very strong author and she knows how to transport you to new locations. I get so excited when she talks about people from her other series.

Repeat

The narrator/write says the same thing over and over. More like they are trying to fill the book than write a story.

Who wrote this book?

Sarah is a hand wringing heroine of old. I kept expecting her to swoon. Cole is a total alpha, but needy as hell and just short of pounding his chest. At around 50 mins before the end, there were glimpses of a real Stoker book, but then it faded into stupid again in the end. Save your money and time

Refreshing

It's great to have a story where the tension isn't brought on by such grizzly scenes as some stories I've encountered. The intensity is preserved, while lightening the trauma. Thank you Susan Stoker for your diversity.

Emotions brought to life

I love this book most out of all the series which is strange to say I think of it as a lovely added little extra to the main series - Cole not being one of the brothers.

An engaging storyline where Sarah needs help and approaches Cole to give her the physical tools needed to defend herself. She gets way more than that and Cole finds himself way more intertwined in this relationship than he expected.

I love their “meet-cute” and how the story progresses

I liked how the narrator brought the real emotions of this story to life, and carried you along the journey with them.

An absolute gem of a read/listen and I loved it was included within the kindle unlimited package as an audiobook too.

Loved it! Shame it is the end of this series

A fantastic last book in this series, bittersweet, as I loved each and every one of the characters for different reasons. The humour is constant, the interactions between the friends and brothers kept me smiling and grinning throughout, there is suspense and lots of hot and steamy scenes. The epilogue brings all 5 books to a swoony closure, I just didn't want it to end, sigh. The narrator did an excellent job and pulled me into the story and kept me there.

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.
