Lynette Eason: Always Watching

By Kelly Bridgewater

The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have more than just skill and prowess in common--they're also all women. When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians in order 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. 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.

Bestselling author and fan favorite Lynette Eason drops readers right into the action in this fast-paced new series with a unique twist. Readers will love these strong female characters who put it all on the line to save lives.

My Thoughts:

I love Lynette Eason's writing. She always takes me for a thrill ride with her strong heroines. In her latest book, Always Watching, it is a first book in her new series entitled Elite Guardians. With Eason's book, I know there will be strong characters, a slight love interest, and non-stop action. If it is even possible, I think Always Watching is one of her best books written so far.

Getting to know the characters and watch them interact is one of the major reasons I enjoy getting lost in a novel. Olivia, the bodyguard, is the type of heroine every woman should admire. She is strong but has flaws that make her totally relatable. I instantly empathized with her and couldn't wait to learn more about her as the novel progressed. Wade, the hero, is a single father who will do anything to protect his almost thirteen year old daughter, Amy. He puts her safety above his own on a number of occasions. This makes his a hero worth pining after. Plus, it doesn't help that he is handsome.

In order for me to completely lose myself in a novel, I have to enjoy the twists and turns. And there needs to be a lot of them. In suspense and thrillers, they should be non-stop. Eason knows this, and in Always Watching she does a great job at keeping me on my toes. I didn't want to put down the book even thought my body kept telling me it was time to go to sleep. It was a thrilling plot with lots of chapters ending in a moment of panic, which made me flip to the next chapter to see what happens. 
Just like I enjoy my books.

The romance should be pretty downplayed for me. Eason does that. Yes, there is moments where Wade and Olivia question why they are feeling emotions for each other, but not too much to classify this book as a romance book.

Always thrilling, Lynette Eason's newest book, Always Watching got my attention in the first couple of chapters and did not let go. I didn't even guess who the bad person was. I had ideas, but they were proven wrong. Good job! I highly recommend this thrill ride for lovers of suspense and mysteries.

I received a complimentary copy of Always Watching from Lynette Eason and Revell Publishing and the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Purchase Always Watching
