Publisher's Summary

Aspen "Blade" Carlisle is the last of his Delta Force team to find love...and he’s pretty bummed about that fact. Which might explain why he finds himself chatting up a telemarketer as if she’s a long-lost friend. But Wendy is surprisingly easy to talk to, so when they go from occasional calls during her work, to nightly conversations on their cells, it somehow feels right. So right, Blade eventually convinces the funny, sweet woman to meet him in person.

When their first face-to-face meeting gets high-jacked, Wendy Tucker is sure she and Aspen made a big mistake in taking their relationship to the next level. But the man is nothing if not persistent. Before long, Wendy’s allowing the handsome soldier to spend more time with her and Jack, the teen brother she’s raising, than anyone she’s ever dated. Though she knows there are limits to how close she can get to Aspen, no matter how much she likes him. Limits carefully constructed to protect Wendy and Jack from a past they’ve been running from for years.

But dating Blade means having an entire team of Deltas at her back. Which may come in handy not just with Wendy’s past...but also when her brother faces a current threat.

Rescuing Wendy is the eighth book in the Delta Force Heroes series. Each book is a standalone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Swoon...love Blade

Aspen...aka Blade...is enthralled by the woman, Wendi, he has only ‘met’ on the phone, when she called to sell him insurance. They’ve developed a relationship of sorts over the phone and finally decide to meet in person...let’s just say that the meeting didn’t go as expected! There’s not a dull moment in this book! Bullies who are up to no good & Wendi hiding a huge secret; another secret that rips apart the Delta Force team. I could not stop listening until it was over. Great book!!

Go Blade Go!

Susan has a way with words and a way to tell every story. I love Wendy. She’s the perfect person for Blade. It’s obvious from the start that these two are going to set sail on an adventure that will set their path to forever.

Wendy and her younger brother Jackson (Jack) are hiding in plain sight. They’ve been running for years. Wendy has done any and all things she can to try and get them to fly under the radar, yet be able to live comfortably.

When Blade comes into the picture things get heavy, then dicey and all kinds of trouble starts. Not for Wendy, but for Jackson. Bullies start harassing him and his friends at school which leads to a lot of trouble for a lot of people.

The Delta team and their women have to deal with an ultimate betrayal and in the end #OperationFixThisSh*t starts....

This story wasn’t as action packed as most of the others, which I guess is good but I was expecting more I think. More bang if you will. I did enjoy it and as always, I can’t wait for the next book!

Amazing but too short!

Really enjoyed this story; I’m so happy Aspen (blade) finally got his own story. Really wished it could have been longer.

The count down is now on to when Truck and Mary’s story comes out.

Recommended

This story is a little different from most of the other stories in this series. The relationship between Wendy & Blade begins without any life or death drama and progresses naturally. It would seem this story ordinary with the typical bumps and bruises but in fact it is pivotal for the Delta team. You'll just have to listen/read it to find out why.

Great story- what a shocker

Wendy and her brother have been on the run for years. Just when they got to a point where they’ll be somewhat safe, she goes and falls in love. Blade can’t believe his luck when he and his mister woman finally meet and they feel immediate sparks. Now if they could only overcome her past and insecurities, they may have a chance at HEA.
Blade’s story was very good. Wendy was great and you understood her more and more as the story unfolded. Loved how another live at first sight couple emerged.
The real kicker was the secret that Truck has been keeping from his friends. It set up the next book- Mary’s story. So sad to see the group so fractured but that kind of love and devotion will keep them together forever. They just have to get over the hump.

I so love all of the Delta Force books

I wish I could say this is my favorite of all the Delta Force Rescue books, but they are all so amazing, it would be impossible to chose an actual “favorite”. They are all stand-alones (though slightly better read in order, just for the character identification), with exciting characters, nonstop action, unparalleled romance, and, of course, the HEA. The characters in this (as with all of them) are epically heroic, yet believable at the same time. And I can’t leave out Stella Bloom, since she expertly brings all of the characters to life. I’ve read them all, multiple times, and each time is a good as the first.

Another great one

Again another great one. I always love these sweet guys. There was not as much action in this one, which was a bummer. Overall it's still good.

Well worth your time

I have read all the books in the series and enjoyed all of them. But this time round I thought I would give Audible a try and I am glad I did, I am really enjoying listening to the books again, having someone read to you brings the characters to life. I recommend Audible to listen to your favourite Authors.

No trust at all

I really didn't like Wendy. She was weak and selfish. Blade did all of the running and her default was to shut him out of her life. She never gave him her trust and only let him in once her secrets were revealed another way. They didn't have a proper relationship and I just wanted him to walk away. Blade blamed himself for getting frustrated with her constant lies, but she didn't seem to mind lying about every part of her past because it was more comfortable for her. She even lied about things that weren't connected to her secret, she just thought they'd make her look bad. It was clear Wendy didn't truly believe he'd betray her, but she preferred to maintain her habit of secrecy instead of caring that she was hurting him.

Loved it

As with all of the delta force heroes books, I loved it. Easy romance to listen too, with a bit of action & steamy sex scenes. Love the way the characters intermingle between books.
