Each are a stand alone books, however they all revolve around the same people. So if you enjoy reading a series and catching up on characters from previous novels then read them in order (Silent Night Standoff, Explosive Alliance, and High-Caliber Holiday), plus they are all good suspenseful reads.

I love the writing style of Susan Sleeman, her mystery, suspense, character development, drama and romance are all woven together in such an amazing way. Usually there are practical lessons to learn along the way too. You will fall in love with the entire FRS family, especially if you have read the whole series. Each individual comes from their own circumstances with their own baggage.
Darcie Stephens, a member of the FRS team, finds herself in the throws of running for her life. She must trust the one man she is trying to keep at an arms length. Darcie is a determined private woman. She has been through more in her life than most, yet she keeps it as hidden as she can. However she must face her past to find a future, if she can survive those who are trying to kill her.
Noah Lockhart has demons of his own he is trying to overcome, yet when Darcie is in need of his protection will he be able to protect her and keep his feelings in check? Noah is a good detective why can he not find who is behind this problem with Darcie? Will they ever catch a break?
I was given an ARC copy of this book from the author for my honest opinion.
BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Truly Riveting SuspenseMay 1, 2016BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another truly riveting addition to Susan Sleeman's First Responders series, Emergency Response takes up the story of EMT Darcie. The first sentence had me in another world of heart-stopping suspense, drug-riddled neighborhoods and desperation.
Fans of Dee Henderson's O'Malley series will find this novel especially striking a strong chord. This tale,even more so than the others so far, really focuses on relationships of the First Responders as a close-knit group. Darcie Stevens has been the one of the group to hold herself back because of her tragic past. As Darcie is forced to rely on Noah Lockhart, a detective, for protection, her double-mindedness about her feelings for him is reflected in his actions as well. Will Darcie choose to open up to Noah and her housemates, or will she play it safe with her emotions? I loved that there were so many different relationships woven into the narrative and affected by Darcie's choices. I loved seeing how the Responders are beginning to firmly gel into a cohesive, almost related group. They have developed emotionally with the progression of the series.
Susan's writing is concise, urgent, and full of a magnetic force that sweeps you into the adventure of terror and love. My recommendation is to set aside enough time to read this book in one setting. You'll be glad you did! Also,the stories can stand alone, but are so much more yummy read in order!
I gratefully received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Suspense that Will Keep You Turning the PagesMay 1, 2016SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Of all the members of Susan Sleemans First Responders Team, Darcie Stephens is the one Ive been most curious about. There have been mentions in every book about her past which just piqued my interest more. Now readers get to learn what happened with Darcie and her family. But Sleeman doesnt just tell readers about it. No, she starts readers off with a bang in Emergency Response.
From the first page of this book, someone wants Paramedic Darcie Stephens dead. Since Darcie is the only member of her team who is not in law enforcement, the fact her name is on what appears to be a hit list doesnt make sense. As Detective Noah Lockhart inserts himself in the investigation, both he and Darcie struggle with their growing attraction toward each other. Neither of them wants to share the pain of their past and with a murder hunting Darcie down, they may not get their second chance.
I enjoyed the fact this book dove deeper emotionally than the first three. As a reader, I got to experience Darcies tragedy and Noahs regret in a way that resonated. Yet, there is still plenty of action and suspense as Noah chases down the people behind the hit list, including an intense scene at the end (Ill give you nothing more than that). Youll be so into this one, you wont want to put it down (and the nice thing about the Love Inspired books is that you can finish them in a day).

The suspense never lets up, not for a minute, until the culprit is apprehended. When you start reading, it's hard to stop. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I look forward to her next book.
