Title: Claiming Sarah (Ace Security #5)
Author: Susan Stoker
Stars: 3 1\2 stars
Wham Bam Thank you Ma'am romance with characters who fall in love with just one look and fight for what they want a wife and baby.
Cole will be remembered by the those who read her other books in the Ace security series. He is finally getting his romance, mystery woman whom he can save and a little extra in the end.
The story works as because it has built in audience but if this was book one in a new series it would fall flat and leave readers board. Once the romance starts the side story falls away and it becomes the same tings Sarah who is worried things are moving to quickly and Cole who wants to marry and impregnate her right away.
The author uses the current themes of life with Sarah having been adopted by to gay men who die in a tragic event.
Everything felt thrown together with and lacked any real focus.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Montlake Romance the advance copy of Susan Stoker Claiming Sarah.
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.
