Publisher's Summary

Porter “Oz” Reed knows as well as anyone the damage words can do. So while he’s not looking for a relationship, he has no problem standing outside his apartment looking intimidating as his sweet neighbor finally kicks her verbally abusive ex to the curb. Just in case. But it’s Oz who’s punched in the gut when, at that precise moment, his 10-year-old nephew Logan is dropped on his doorstep. 

After finally ditching her ex, Riley Rogers is ready for a break from men. But her plan to stay single takes an immediate hit when Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome from next door comes knocking, panicked at the prospect of caring for a nephew he never even knew existed. Riley’s only too happy to help. After all, Porter had her back when she needed him. And she feels a kinship with Logan...whose story hits a little too close to Riley’s own.

As they team up to make Logan feel safe in his new environment, Riley and Oz quickly fall hard for the boy and each other. But they’ve barely adapted to their altered lives when Logan shares a secret that changes everything - again.

Shielding Riley is the fourth book in the Delta Team Two series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliff-hanger endings.

Devastatingly amazing!

I didn’t think it was possible for Susan Stoker to write a book that would make me cry harder than The Boardwalk anthology, but Shielding Riley surpassed that tenfold! My mom happened to stop by right after the secret is revealed and she honestly thought my cat had died. I was absolutely hysterical. She’s an avid reader of the books as well, but she does the e-reader version. I told her to prepare herself. This one hit me harder than Alabama’s story and I may need to join a support group. Hats off to you, Susan!!! This book may have wrecked me, but I will definitely listen to it again. 💜

Finding Love and Family on this troubled journey

What an incredible emotional story. Virginia Rose gives an outstanding performance that actually had me in tears at certain points of the story. Oz discovers he has a nephew because his estranged sister was murdered and he becomes the boy’s guardian. He knows nothing about raising children and asks his beautiful neighbor Riley for advice. These three form a bond very quickly. His 10 year old nephew Logan is a fabulous character and I just loved his transformation as he learns to trust Oz. Riley has a problem with her ex that they think is alright. This story had me in tears but also made me smile. Grab the tissues and get ready to become drawn into this story. You will be cheering for these endearing characters created by Susan Stoker. So deeply touched my heart.

Over the top mushy

I am beginning to feel like all of these books are the same. The hero falls fast and is super crazy sweet and they always have these long drawn out mush fests. The heroine is all "omg he's so perfect and I'm so lucky". There is no banter, no humor, no well nothing. The kids are great. Virginia Rose did an amazing job narrating a boring book.

small spoiler alert but skip this book

Like other reviewers have said, Susan Stoker's books all are pretty much the same story on repeat with different names which is probably why I own a few of them; they're a predictable listen. This book was a bit much though, I felt like she added extra horrible drama regarding kids just for the shock value and its pretty much what the whole book is.
This isnt a romance, just a bunch of horrible family drama where 2 people happen to get together in the midst of it. There is a little girl chained up in a dog crate which is awful but I draw the line with a few topics in romance books and ped0philes is one of them. I listen to romances to escape, not have terrible garbage like that in my mind.
Susan - if you want to raise awareness about how bad things can be for kids in the foster system, inappropriate touching, abusive situations, drug use, etc that's a laudable cause but I for one dont like being suckered into a soapbox sermon in the guise of a romance. This book is all the wrong kind of feels. I am returning ASAP

Same plot, different names

As much as I have enjoyed Susan Stoker’s books and I have them, they are beginning to all sound repetitive-different names and a few circumstances but it’s getting so predictable. I am no longer happy on release day.

Good story

Another good story in Stoker''s Delta Team series. I loved how tough Aspen was and how Brain and his team respected her. Virginia Rose does a good job with the narration.
