Always Watching

GIVEAWAY

EASON, LYNETTE
ALWAYS WATCHING

Intensity, skill, tenacity. The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians to protect his son. But when Wade's bodyguard is attacked and nearly killed, agency owner Olivia Edwards must step in and fill the gap.

Olivia's skills are about to be tested to the limit as Wade's stalker moves from leaving innocent gifts at his door to threatening those closest to him -- including Olivia. But in her mind, even more dangerous than the threats to her life is the hold her handsome client has on her heart.

My Review:

Squeeeaaaallllll! Happy dancing over this stellar start to what promises to be an amazing new series. So much to love -- especially the bodyguard heroines. Love that twist. Drawing on her law enforcement background, Olivia has started up her own agency -- and all the elite bodyguards are women. Each one waiting to share their own story I hope.

Always Watching is Olivia's turn and this book has it all. Creepy stalker, puzzling mystery, dashing hero, the lure of impossible romance. A truly delicious white-knuckle read on all counts. I shouted myself hoarse as I tried to warn characters of danger -- both real and imagined. As usual, they ignored me and seemed intent on charging into one threatening situation after another.

For all that Olivia is the bodyguard, Wade is no slouch. His manly pride won't allow him to stay on the sidelines while Olivia takes all the risks. Makes for some highly charged moments. Insert blissful sigh. If my heart wasn't racing over the suspense it was dipsy-doing over the romance.

A truly sublime read.

  18. I only have a few of Lynette Eason's LI books (that I haven't read, by the way!,) but I have been so excited for this one since it came up on Amazon's pre-order. A strong female in a typically male-dominated position is a unique premise. I love that it isn't a familiar romantic suspense trope. Thanks for another excitement induced review! :) tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
