Intensity. Skill. Tenacity.
The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.
Katie Singleton, a partner with the Elite Guardians Protection Agency, stumbles upon her next assignment quite by accident. Spotting blue lights at a familiar restaurant, she stops to investigate, only to discover that owner Daniel Matthews has become the target of someone who will go to any lengths to put him out of business.
Daniel might be concerned, but he's not convinced that a bodyguard--and a female one at that--is necessary. A new attack and his niece's urgings are enough to make him reconsider. He and Katie must figure out who's behind the intimidation and threats--before a would-be killer strikes again.
Without Warning, the second book in Lynette Eason's Elite Guardians series, begins at a lightning pace that doesn't let down until the very end. While this is the second book in the series, I had no trouble jumping in without first having read book one. The action moves quickly and so much happens, yet I never felt lost or confused ... I just wanted to keep reading! Without Warning has a top-notch plot.
I really enjoyed the suspense aspect of this novel. I was constantly guessing the identity of the villain, and I ended up partially right and partially flabbergasted. (You'll have to read the book to see what I mean!) I especially loved Eason's choice to write portions of the novel from the villain's perspective—it gave glimpses of the villain's identity without revealing too much.
For me, the romance was just okay. I liked Katie and Daniel separately, and they were fine together, but I never found myself pulling for them as a couple. So even though Without Warning is classified as romantic suspense, I would say it's heavy on the suspense and light on the romance.
I decided to read Without Warning because a friend whose opinion I totally trust raved about Always Watching, book one in the series. I'm so glad I picked it up—I'm learning that you can't go wrong with a Lynette Eason novel! 4 stars.
Buy the book.
