Enhance your purchase
A chance encounter reunites two old friends. They never imagined finding each other again, or the attraction and danger that would result.
Lexie Greene hasn’t thought about Pierce Cagle in years. So when the popular boy she knew in high school shows up in the middle of the Somali desert, part of the SEAL team rescuing her and a coworker from kidnappers, she’s more than a little shocked. But her surprise turns to awe, then awe to respect…and attraction…when he saves her not once, but twice before they make it safely back to a US Naval ship. Before she can blink, he’s gone from her life again, but not before an emotional goodbye and a promise to keep in touch.
Pierce “Midas” Cagle hasn’t thought about Lexie in years. Though he’s not surprised in the least to learn that the shy, kind girl he knew is now an international aid worker, serving the poor both at home and abroad. His attraction to the woman she’s become, however…that’s definitely unexpected. He hates leaving her behind after his mission, but Midas is more thrilled than he can say when she chooses the Hawaiian branch of Food For All for her next assignment.
Their chemistry is just as strong as it was in Somalia, and neither Lexie nor Midas has ever been so happy. Nor could they possibly suspect someone is outraged that Lexie made it out of the desert alive.
** Finding Lexie is the 2nd book in the SEAL Team Hawaii Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Lexie Greene is an optimist with a huge heart who likes to see the best in others. Having an unhappy home life as a child and growing up with dyslexia, which caused her great difficulty in school, Lexie always did her best to blend in to the background. She did not have a lot of friends or a huge social life so after she graduated, she threw herself into her work which was volunteering at a local food bank in her hometown and later joining an organization called Food For All, that did what it could to help those in less fortunate situations. That’s how she found herself in her current situation, being kidnapped and held for ransom with a colleague in the Somalian desert. Her abductors are becoming impatient and she can tell it’s just a matter of time before they cut their losses and dispose of them both.
Pierce Cagle, also known as Midas by his SEAL team, is 100% vested in their current rescue mission of two kidnapped employees for an aid organization; especially since he has a past connection to one – Lexie Greene. Midas knew her in high school but has not thought of her in years, though seeing a proof of life picture of her stirs something deep in him. When he’s the one to rescue her, their connection is instantaneous and he hates the thought of leaving her behind. After their emotional good-bye after her rescue, both are thrilled to reconnect when Lexie chooses her next assignment at the Hawaiian location of Food For All. A growing relationship, strong chemistry, good friends, the start of a new life…everything is perfect until a surprising threat to Lexie follows her to Hawaii determined for revenge. She never should have made it out of Somalia alive and someone is determined to end her happiness once and for all.
This was a great story with charming characters and a compelling storyline full of action, suspense, danger, and romance. I loved the interactions between Lexie, Midas, and his SEAL team; the fun times and somber moments, and Baker! Need to know more about this man! Hopefully, more will be revealed in future books. Oh, and the next book – Aleck and Kenna…can’t wait!!
Pierce “Midas” Cagle and his SEAL team are in the desert in Somolia trying to rescue two people who were kidnapped. One was a major figure in Food For All, an international relief organization, Dagmar Brander, and a field worker, Lexi Green. When the asked ransom was met, the kidnappers doubled the ransom demand. Now the two had been hostages for nearly three months. It was imperative that they get them out, especially since it is possible that Dagmar had experienced a stroke. This was a semi-personal mission for Midas as he had known Lexi their senior year of high school. They had worked on an English project together. Now, he had a personal stake in this mission.
Lexi Green was alone in the world. She had lost her last relative and now her home was wherever Food For All took her. She was very good at her job and made friends easily. After being freed, she had recognized Midas as the “star” of high school; but never as a close friend. She was thankful to see a familiar face. They were taken back to the town they were kidnapped from because Dagmar’s brother in Denmark had arranged for Dagmar’s personal doctor to be there waiting for him. The SEALS didn’t like this idea; but since the Denmark team was in charge of Dagmar, they had no recourse. While in the hospital getting ready to leave for safety, the hospital was attacked and their targets for Dagmar and Lexi. Could Midas get her out of there and keep her alive? He was cut off from his team and all communication to them as the radios failed. They are on the run – two white people, one is surgical scrubs and barefooted and the other in filthy attack gear of the SEALS. Where in this town could they safely hide?
Lexie is beautiful inside and out, and I love the descriptions of her hair! She's kind and generous to a fault, and always sees the good in every situation, no matter how difficult it might be, an admirable trait, and something you grow to love about her.
Midas is a delight! Alpha to his very core, yet smitten even as he tries to fight those feelings just a bit. He's strong and powerful, a bit jaded, and the sunshine that Lexie brings into his life is magnificent to read about on the page.
There's layers of drama and mystery and intrigue, there's poignant and touching moments in the most dire of situations, and all in all, it's about trust, honor, loyalty, friendship, and most of all, love, and I loved every single page of it in this story, and how we got to experience it!
Susan delivers another fabulous story, that you'll easily devour in one sitting! So, hop on and enjoy the ride!
P. S. Love the moment with our resident silver fox! I am SO INTRIGUED by him, and love all the teasers we're getting!
P. P. S. Already so excited for Kenna's story!!! I cannot wait to find out more about Aleck!

Lexie and Midas/ Pierce went to school together. When his team is sent to rescue two aid workers, Midas can’t believe that it’s Lexie. I would have loved way more danger at this point. Lexie has supposedly been beaten by her captors yet she feels sorry for them having no money, and being desperate. It just didn’t add up to be honest.
When she goes to live in Hawaii, someone isn’t happy that she survived. I’m now 53% way through the book and there’s no excitement, and no danger!!! I’m sorry but this really isn’t this authors usual standard.
Lexi (awesome name) is an aid worker in Somalia who gets kidnapped along with another man. After the man has taken ill their respective governments step in to save them. Unfortunately the mans death creates a whole dangerous issue for Lexi. Midas is the SEAL tasked with her rescue and afterward he can’t see herself without her. Which is just as well as a member of the dead mans family comes knocking.
This instalment just shows how grief can negatively affect many people.
I live Lexi and her open heart and how she cares she much about others before herself, sometimes - like Midas - her naivety just makes me want to shake her, it also makes me think that we all shouldn’t be so cynical and jaded.
Midas - everyone needs a Midas. Loved him.
Another excellent book from Susan Stoker with this delightful Seal Team. Looking forward to the next one.
