One minute Casey Shea was minding her own business, doing her job, teaching entomology to college students, and the next she was in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle fighting for her life.
Troy “Beatle” Lennon had watched his friends fall head over heels in love, but never thought it would happen to him. Until he sees a picture of one of his teammates’ sisters. That was it. The absolute joy in her eyes calls to him in a way he can’t understand.
But that joy is currently being threatened by an unknown person who’d had Casey kidnapped and hidden deep in the jungle. It’s up to Beatle to find her and keep her safe until the threat against her can be neutralized. Surviving the dangers of the jungle turns out to be the easy part…staying ahead of the killer is much more complicated…and deadly.
**Rescuing Casey is the 7th book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
REVIEW: RESCUING CASEY is the seventh installment in Susan Stoker’s contemporary, adult DELTA FORCE HEROES military, romantic, suspense series. This is Delta Force team member Troy ‘Beatle’ Lennon, and entomology professor Casey Shea’s story line. RESCUING CASEY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.
Told from three third person perspectives including Beatle and Casey RESCUING CASEY follows the Delta Force Team as they go in search of one of their own. Casey Shea, a professor of entomology, has taken three of her students on a field excursion to the jungles of Costa Rica only to find themselves abducted and imprisoned with no reason as to the who or why. Separated from the others Casey Shea will be forced underground with little hope of survival until her brother’s Delta Force Team comes swooping in to her rescue. Enter Troy ‘ Beatle’ Lennon, Delta Force Team member, and the man with whom Casey will fall in love. What ensues is the long trek to freedom through the Costa Rican jungle, and the hunt for the person(s) responsible for targeting our story line heroine.
Casey Shea specializes in bugs and Costa Rica is ripe for the picking but everything goes horribly wrong when the four young women are kidnapped and captured by an unknown foe. Rescued by Delta Force Team members including her brother Aspen ‘Blade’ Shea, Casey along with Beatle and Truck find themselves looking over their shoulders for incoming threats as they forage through the jungle on their way to safety. An independent and strong female heroine Casey is the perfect foil for our story line hero. Beatle Lennon knows immediately that protecting Casey is his number one priority but our heroine is battling one too many issues including starvation, dehydration and the possibility of any number of potential jungle-born ailments.
The relationship between Casey and Beatle is one of immediate attraction. Beatle goes into the mission with two objectives: rescuing Casey Shea, and claiming her for his own. The sexual energy is palpable ; the $ex scenes are limited but passionate.
We are reintroduced to the Delta Force Team including Truck, Coach, Ghost, Hollywood, Fletch and Blade. Casey’s arrival back to civilization will culminate with her integration into the circle of Delta Force lovers and wives.
RESCUING CASEY will fascinate and captivate your attention from the outset but I have so many questions about the circumstances surrounding how one female professor, and three young, college age women are left to their own devices in the Costa Rican jungle. As well, the Costa Rican’s government refusal to help, and the revelation of the person responsible is completely out of the realm of possibilities and reality that I struggled with the believability on so many levels.
RESCUING CASEY is a story of family, friendship, bonds and love. The premise is creative; the romance is loving and sweet; the characters are colorful and charismatic. Put reality on hold as your venture forth into the Costa Rican jungle and the world of the Delta Force soldiers.
