I found this book to be surprisingly deep emotionally and surprisingly mild regarding sex (some making out but the sex between the lines, the writing is about the emotional afterglow, not the act itself). Rather charming. Good action. Definitely interested in pursuing some of the author's other titles in this series. In response to the reviewer who complained it was a cliff-hanger I disagree. Just because the series isn't completed, he mastermind behind the evil is still out there for the team to pursue, the main storyline of this novel about main characters Ashton on Summer is complete without cliffhangers. A series generally hints at what the next book will be about, in this case another set of characters that the bad guy will be focusing on destroying, but I would argue that that is not a cliff hanger. We know what the next story in the series will be about, but that action in that story has not yet begun. I would argue that there is a difference between a teaser for the next book and a cliff hanger. This book is complete and I would recommend it for a fun easy read.

They say don't judge the book by its cover, but OH MY GOODNESS, if this is not the best cover ever! And the book does deliver what the cover promises. Daddy Defender is filled with riveting, knuckle-biting suspense and action intertwined with adorable, sweet, and swoon-worthy scenes. Ashton Fitzgerald is fun, kind, protective, and good with his hands. His growing feelings towards Summer Worrall and her cute little daughter are a well-known secret within Omega. Yet the convoluted history between Ashton's job and Summer's past keeps him from being open and honest with her, keeping the walls in place between them and their feelings towards each other hidden. Because Ashton has brought Summer's feelings to the surface again, emotions that have been deeply buried since her husband was killed. The connection and chemistry between Ashton and Summer are obvious and palpable, as is the connection Ashton has to Summer's daughter. These three form an inseparable unit, that nothing can destroy, no matter how much they try. The whole cast of characters are charming, likable, and attractive, the kind of people you want to hang out with, to get to know better. I found them entertaining and enjoyable, wishing there would have been a bit more insight to Ashton and Summer's personalities, as they were fumbling with their emotions and future possibilities. Maybe I just couldn't get enough of them... The continues threat and deadly force attacks towards the Omega team, Ashton, and Summer keeps the strain and stress high, gripping the attention and escalating the terror and angst. It is obvious the culprits do not care if there is collateral damage, as long as they manage to cripple the Omega, and ultimately destroy it because revenge is the game they like to play. Even though the story is brought to a satisfying conclusion, there is a sort of a cliffhanger, as the mastermind behind the desire to end the existence of Omega Sector is still at large, and the story will - apparently - continue through the series. A mesmerizing and sharp story with vivid images, dynamic characters, and powerful suspense and action combined with dreamy, lovely, and delectable romance and the cutest little girl with her hero in the middle of the battle... ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

4 1/2 STARS! Unexpected terror brings danger to the the fore front of the team's mind when they least expect it! With the kick-off of her new Omega Sector: Under Siege series, Janie Crouch brings us many familiar faces from her beloved Omega Sector Critical Response team!  These books are always fast paced and high energy and this one does not disappoint. Add in an adorable little girl and a hint of romance brewing and it makes for a great read! I'm looking forward to the next in the series! Widow Summer Worrall and her baby girl Chloe both have a crush on the guy that takes care of things around their house. Mistaking him as the handyman when he did a favor for her landlord, Summer continues to call Ashton with anything she can find wrong around the house ... she isn't really that picky, but she really enjoys seeing the sexy, shy guy! Omega sharpshooter Ashton Fitzgerald doesn't know how to tell Summer who he really is, so he's sort of just quietly played along and helped her out. When danger follows him to her door, it's time to get down to the truth and find a way to get the target off of her and her baby girl. When she finds out the past they share, will she still be attracted to him and want that date he promised her??

This is the 4th book of Ms Crouch’s that I have read, and am totally hooked. Daddy Defender is a spinoff of the author’s Omega Sector. This one centers around Ashton Fitzgerald, a sharpshooter for the Omega Sector, and Summer Worrall. Summer’s husband was killed during a hostage situation involving Ashton and his team. He feels responsible for her husband’s death. It was sweet the way Summer thought he was a handyman instead of a law enforcement agent. Chole, Summer’s baby is adorable and totally taken by Ashton. Summer finds out who he really is during a hostage situation she witnessed. Needless to say, she was hurt . Life gets complicated when someone decides to take revenge against the Omega Sector, and Summer and Chole become targets by association. The plot and characters were well developed , ad interesting. The story was full of suspense, a psychopath full of revenge, an alpha male with a soft spot for a little girl and her Mom , and romance. Though it definitely is NOT a cliffhanger, the mystery will continue in the next book, and I am looking forward to finding out what the author has in store for us.
