Publisher Description

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

The stakes are personal, hot, and dangerous in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker's riveting Mountain Mercenaries novel.

As tough as Everly Adams may be, the Colorado Springs SWAT officer is near a breaking point. Her fifteen-year-old half sister, Elise, has disappeared from Los Angeles without a trace, and the window to find her is closing fast. Committed to the search is Mountain Mercenary Kannon "Ball" Black. He and Everly already have a history - of rubbing each other the wrong way.

Still, Everly has to admit the man is heart-stopping. His brash alpha swagger takes her breath away. And most importantly, as a former Coast Guard first responder, Ball has what it takes to bring Elise home.

Nobody's buying the LAPD's "runaway" theory. And the fear that Elise is the victim of a human trafficking ring is a gut-punch that Everly and Ball can't ignore. If only the trail were that clear cut. Because the one they're following is more insidious and intimately dark than they could have imagined.

Now as the bond between Everly and Ball grows stronger, so does the heat. And as the stakes rise, so does the danger.

What a Fantabulous Read!!!

This is Everly and Balls story.
I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to get into this story, but I was sooooo wrong! This author did an amazing job with Everly’s character. I thought she was going to be too...tough? much? for Ball. Nope! She was perfect! I was wondering if Ball was ever going to see her for the tough, take no prisoners chick that she is. He finally did (I KNEW he had to since this is a Susan Stoker story, but he took his sweet time about it). But when she went outside swinging and ready to fight, good lord, that was a GREAT SCENE!!
You NEED to pick up this book and or listen to it!!
Stella Bloom was freaking AWESOME as she narrated this story.
Perfect Audio Experience!!

My new favorite

Ok, I think this is my new favorite in the series. There were so many good things about Ball and Everly's story. Everly is a kick butting police officer and you do get to see her skills in this. I love a heroine who can hold her own.

Ball had me a little nervous at first. He is very obviously jaded about women but the author did such a good job of turning him around. It was subtle and realistic when he realized that just maybe he wasn't thinking full picture based off his past experiences. He gracefully acknowledged he was wrong. Good job Ball!

I really loved the addition of Elise's character. She is Everly's little sister who is deaf. This created so many great scenes with Ball and the rest of the Mountain Mercenary crew. The way Ball wanted to learn ASL was so endearing. Really how he treated Elise from day one had me loving him.

The best part was the plot. While very scary in real life, it made for an exciting and fast paced read in the book. We also get a glimpse into the next book and I gotta say that was cruel Susan Stoker! How do you expect us to wait after that preview???
