Publisher's Summary

For Sidney Hale, rescuing dogs is more than a hobby. It’s a calling. A deep-seated need. An unstoppable compulsion. For reasons so unsettling, she shares them with no one…until she meets Decker. After coming to her rescue while Sidney battled to save a dog - literally - the gorgeous SEAL proves he can be trusted with her secrets, her safety…maybe even her heart. 

Saving an abused pit bull from a suspected dog fighter brings Decker “Gumby” Kincade not only the dog he’s always wanted, but the first woman in ages to catch his interest. Sidney’s reason for rescuing Hannah, and animals like her, is shocking…but it makes Gumby want her even more. Her harrowing past has made her the strong, brave, compassionate woman she is today. She could be The One…if Gumby can help curb her habit of putting herself squarely in danger’s path. 

But he may be too late. Hannah’s previous owner is enraged over her loss…and looking for revenge. 

*Securing Sidney is the second book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings. 

This story examines the stark reality of dogfighting and other animal abuse, and includes brief descriptions that may be unpleasant for some listeners.

MHO

This really is a good book/performance. But for me (tender heart for dogs), it was a little too graphic. I know it has a warning at the beginning,, but I tried it anyway. I enjoyed this couple's story.

I am so darn glad to be done with this book.

Overall, I like Susan Stoker and her books are an auto buy for me. Most of the time I’ll listen to the story imore than once.

This story, though, not so much. In fact, I’ll be returning it to get my credit back. I just did not like the heroine. I know she was supposed to be great hero of dogs who was also vulnerable and harboring childhood issues. I get that. And I was willing to go with that theory for the first dog rescue. However, after the second and definitely by the third dog rescue, I thought this had to be the stupidest girl.

Her stupidity was so far gone that it was hard for me to finish this book. Seriously, I could only listen to it in small doses before I was done. It took days for me to finish this book. I did finish it, though, I don’t feel any measure of happiness as I usually do when finishing a romance especially by a favorite author.

I was relieved to be done. It’s not just the stupid heroine, though, that made it hard to listen. It was the narrators male voices, especially the hero. Somehow she made him sound old and slightly constipated, not at all sexy.

The handy woman gets the SEAL

Sydney Hale, handy woman and dog rescuer, met Decker ‘Gumby’ Kincaid when he came upon her fighting with the man who was mistreating a pit bull. When Gumby adopted the badly injured dog, Sydney’s heart melted a little...but she feels that she’s out of his league...after all, her baby brother is a notorious serial killer. Gumby is drawn to the brave, outspoken woman and the pair become fast friends. Can Gumby get past Sydney’s insecurities and show her that she’s worth loving? Will the dog fighters become more of a threat than imagined?
Another captivating story in this new series. Looking forward to more.

Romance & Danger & Dogs... oh my

For animal lovers- it’s a sad and vile story. The heroine is an emotional basket case with goo cause. She also sometimes doesn’t use much common sense because of it. The narrator did a good job- giving the characters different tones

Romance, Action and Doggies- Whats not to love?!

I am a huge Susan Stoker fan (she is an automatic pre-order for me), but I am a bigger dog fan. I have 3 rescued fur babies and I was worried about being about to handle a book that describes dog fighting/other abuses. If I did not already trust this author, I never would have read this. I should not have worried. Stoker is respectful and only describes enough so you get the idea. She does not revel in the pain or the gore. Ok that aside on to the reason we love these novels—the romance. : )
Sidney and Decker are sweet, believable and a good match. As with all Stoker’s heroines Sidney is intelligent and not a doormat. Yes she is damaged, as we all are, and you want to yell at her at times, but you understand why she does what she does. Decker is amazing, sexy and protective. The third member of this love fest is the rescued pittie Hannah. You will be smitten, I promise.

Narrations is as great as it can be with one talented person. Her voice lets you clearly know who is speaking and all the emotion/action/etc. is present. I was not crazy about Decker’s voice, but the only way to make it okay would have been a guy to narrate his part.

As always it is awesome to hear about past characters and get a sneak peak at the next story. Piper is intriguing…

Awesome!

I love how Susan writes books about real people, and the struggles they go through. Loved the story! I love Savannah Peachwood as a narrator as well.

The Redeeming Heroine

I loved this book. I really enjoyed Sidney and Gumby's relationship. In the past, we have also seen the hero mess up and he has to go crawling back. Well in this book its the heroines turn. She's trying to right wrongs from her past and in doing so she messes up. Action, Adventure, Suspense, and Romance are all in this audio.

Sidney was stupid

Sidney could have been read better like Caite. Caite had intelligence and smarts. Sidney was acting like most people. Thinking of what they wanted to do with no regards for others who could be harmed by Bad decisions.

Good romance!

I liked this story, except sometimes the heroine really does stupid things. She’s the sister of a famous serial killer and her life has been traumatized by this. Her parents disowned her for testifying at her brothers trial. She has a compulsion to rescue abused animals because of things she’d witnessed her brother do. She meets the hero when he interrupts a fight she’s in with an abusive dog owner and he rescues her. Can they figure out a way to handle her compulsion and be together? Narration was well done.
