Rescuing Emily (Delta Force Heroes) Paperback – July 19, 2016
Enhance your purchase
She was only supposed to be a tenant, but when she was threatened because of him, she became so much more.
Renting out the apartment over his garage shouldn’t be a life-changing decision, but when Delta soldier Cormac “Fletch” Fletcher meets Emily Grant, he feels an instant connection. He can’t stand the thought of Emily and her young daughter living anywhere unsafe. Offering cheap rent is a small price to pay for their safety…and Fletch’s peace of mind.
Being a single mother is difficult at best, but renting the extremely affordable space from Fletch makes Emily’s life a lot easier…until it doesn’t. Suddenly all the money she’s saving thanks to Fletch’s generosity is going into the hands of a blackmailer. And what little food Emily can afford goes to her daughter Annie, so the girl doesn’t go to bed hungry…leaving Emily weaker and weaker.
When miscommunication has Emily assuming Fletch is in on the blackmail, he not only has to gain her trust, but also deal with a man holding a grudge against Fletch and his entire Delta Force team. A task made more difficult when the dangerous man gets his hands on Emily and Annie...
** Rescuing Emily is the 2nd book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Lesson: if someone bothers to give a book a one star review it means that the book made them angry enough to warn others.
I have read quite a few of her books and enjoyed them so I didn't bother to read any reviews before buying. Big mistake.
The other negative reviews are all correct and I agree with them and have more to add. The heroine is incredibly stupid and starves herself rather than confront her landlord. Also it was in such embarrassingly bad taste the WAY that this author wrote about the heroine and the hero's sexual fantasies and THEN reveals them? It was painful to read and so frustrating that I stopped reading the novel and started reading the reviews. Thankfully other people felt as disappointed as me about the standard of writing in this book.
Fletch feels an instant connection to Emily and her daughter, Annie. He offers to rent the room above his garage to them, and for a while all is well until Emily is blackmailed by someone intent on doing harm.
In this story, Susan Stoker brings us face-to-face with the lengths a mother will do to ensure the safety and well-being of her child. Blackmailed into giving away her hard-earned money, Emily would rather go hungry than see her child starve.
Other people would see Emily's actions as an act of cowardice. Why did she keep on paying the blackmailer? Why did she not tell Fletch? Why would she let herself get sick, knowing that someone was threatening her and her child?
Some would even go to the length of asking—why did Susan Stoker introduce such a weak character? Why did she create someone stupid enough to fold in the face of trouble?
And Annie, she is just a child, why did Susan Stoker portray her as too worldly?
I cannot, in all honesty, agree with those who would say that Emily was weak. She is not. Yes, most of us would have acted differently, given the same circumstance.
But, and I say this mildly:
In a perfect world, women are not considered the weaker race.
In a perfect world, all of us women know how to fight.
In a perfect world, women are accorded the same respect as men who demand respect.
In a perfect world, women are given the same opportunities as men.
In a perfect world, ALL women are allowed to speak up for themselves.
I have fought against tyranny and oppression. I have stood toe-to-toe against a pastor who believed me too opinionated, one who insisted that my place was a few paces behind a man; that I should do nothing but obey and do what I am told to do.
Fortunately, I was brought up to fight for what I believe, and knew, was right. I survived, and I can stand proud and say I can slug someone without an ounce of remorse if push comes to shove. Or when boundaries are breached and those who want to hurt me do so through those I love.
People like Emily? We cannot honestly say they are weak for succumbing to pressure. In fact, I would say that they are by far stronger than some of us. Especially when there is a child involved. As a mother, a sister, an aunt or simply a friend—should we really just scoff when one of us needs our support our understanding and help, the most?
Or should we be aware enough to tell them to not be afraid to reach out? To tell them that they are not alone.

Emily is a single parent trying to bring up her daughter, Annie, on very little money. She is rather timid except when it comes to protecting Annie and then she is like a tiger protecting her cub.
She begins renting the apartment over a garage belonging to "Fletch" who is a member of an elite Delta military team. The chemistry between Emily and Fletch is apparent from the beginning but she begins to doubt him after a visit from one of his enemies.
Emily and Annie are in grave danger, can Fletch and his team get to them in time ?
I love the adoration and protective manner that Fletch shows toward Emily, I love the way he interacts and cherished Annie, a highly intelligent, witty six year old, I love the respect and the bonding that the Delta team have for one another, in fact I loved everything about this book and I can highly recommend it

it was amazing
Poor Emily, she has had rotten luck where men are concerned. No wonder when she gets blackmailed she falls for it, trust is a hard thing for her to do. Fletch is awesome though, and soon takes to both her and Annie. Annie is adorable and I can see her being spoilt by all Fletch's team. This story shows how easy it is to be at cross purposes when communication isn't full or followed through, it causes all sorts of problems. An easy read you just don't want to put down, the characters are mostly loveable and easy to like. It is intense in places with some dramatic scenes, as well as the great chemistry that builds between Fletch and Emily as we move through the book. Annie is the star of this story in my eyes, she not only steals the heart of Fletch but the other members of the team and me as a reader. I can bet right now that when she grows up she is going into the Forces, maybe one day we will get her story something I would love. Susan manages to grab her readers form page one to the end, leave them wanting more every time. Each book leads into the next at the end so to get full enjoyment I do suggest you read in order and all the books, the characters also go on with into the other books as this is a Delta Force Team Series so you get some continuation throughout.
This was an amazing book. Annie stole almost every scene and I loved her interactions with Delta! I was crying happy tears into my kindle by the end. Such a great series.
