Lynette Eason is a favorite author of mine for writing suspenseful fiction with a side of romance. Elite Guardians is her latest series featuring a group of ladies who have a company that offers protection to people in trouble.
In Always Watching, Olivia Edwards is the main guardian trying to keep Wade Savage alive. Olivia has a past that she is trying to ignore rather than face, and since Wade is a radio host with a business in psychology, he has the ability to get her to open up. I always enjoy the sincerity in Ms. Eason’s characters. They are easy to get to know and become fond of.
There are a number of plot twists and turns throughout the story, and the conclusion is not at all what I expected! I loved seeing how Olivia and her crew were completely committed to each other and the task at hand. Their loyalty to their clients was inspiring. My other favorite part was the family aspect, as Wade has a 12 year old daughter, and is raising her as a single dad.
Always Watching is a fast paced novel, the story moves along quickly. When I started the story I was reluctant to put it down. Once I finished it, my 14 year old son quickly grabbed it and started to read it as well. After spending a few hours today in it he was three quarters of the way through and would not put it down even to eat supper!
NOTE : I received a copy of Always Watching in exchange for an honest review by Revell.

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. Olivia has the feeling that she’s next on the list. And to complicate things even further, she realizes that her heart may be in as much danger as her client.
