After years of resisting his teammates' good intentions, big, bad and cranky Delta Force soldier, Magnus "Duff" McCormick, agrees to a blind date. Memories of his wife who died on their honeymoon derail his date with the beautiful redhead his friends introduce him to. When his date is attacked and almost stolen away, Duff comes to the rescue and sticks to her like glue, memories be damned.
Newly free-spirited Ivy Fremont, daughter of a senator, gave up her career as a lawyer to own and operate a gift shop, where mistakes won't cost anyone his or her life. When her world is turned upside down and her life is threatened, her blind date and his team of Deltas launch a mission to Costa Rica to save her.
During their escape from a gnarly drug cartel, Ivy and Duff learn they have more in common than just their friends' desire to get them together. Passions flare and walls around one intrepid soldier's heart come tumbling down. They find in each other a reason to live and fight to give love a chance.

Romantic suspenseful story, could not put down
Gwen set her friend Ivy up with one of Merlin’s Delta team mates as a blind date to go to Ugly Mug bar with her for a send off for a teammate. Ivy has never been to a military bar before and is a little reluctant since it is a blind date.. Merlin set up his teammate Duff as Ivy’s blind date. “For the record, I don’t like being setup”. Duff said. Wolf states, someone had to do it.
Ever consider I like being alone? Duff grumbled.
Yeah but we are hoping a woman can smooth out the ruff edges, and I’m bringing Nori, “she’s looking forward to seeing Duff take the fall for a female” says Wolf. “I’m not going to fall,” Duff muttered. “I don’t even know the woman.” Merlin chuckled. “Famous last words.” This is The Very Basic Beginning to a wonderfully suspenseful romantic story I just could not put down.
Strong, independent woman / Alpha man
Wow, what an adventure. I love that Ivy is a strong woman and able to get herself out of the mess she finds herself in. She doesn't show fear, even when you know she is feeling it. I think Duff was the perfect match for her. He's a leader, but he gives her room to be independent, even when he doesn't want to.
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Ivy’s Delta is book 4 in the Delta Team Three series by Elle James and various authors and is part of the Operation Alpha World, Delta Team Two series by Susan Stoker.
Up next is Magnus ‘Duff’ McCormick and Ivy Fremont, a Senator’s daughter, former lawyer and now a gift shop owner. Duff’s team members know he’s a man of few words but has walls built around his heart from a loss long ago that they know nothing about. This all changes when Ivy literally falls into his arms, kisses him and then disappears, his thoughts are to find her again as she has somehow put cracks in the walls around his heart and for the first time in 8 years he want more out of life.
What happens next...kidnapping, drug cartel, senator trying to stop illegal weapons, on the run, rescue in Costa Rica, fast paced and some steamy romance.
