Taut Writing and Breakneck Pacing That Will Keep Readers Up All Night 

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. 

Witty dialogue and a simmering attraction will have readers flying through this tension-laced thriller. Eason exercises complete control of her readers' emotions as they race through the pages to discover the truth. 

Well, contrary to what the title suggests, I will give you a warning about Without Warning by Lynette Eason.  You will NOT want to put this down.  I fell in love with the Elite Guardian series since Always Watching And due to a crazy schedule and a mix up, I didn't get the chance to read this until Christmas time, during my break. It was definitely a highlight.  

Katie had always struck me as tough and filled with assurance. She is just that but with a little more grit mixed with sensitivity. Her care for Riley, Daniel's (her client) niece was endearing. And let me sidetrack her from our main couple and say, if there's a favorite supporting character for a story, I'd choose Riley. She'd animated, a teen with an "old soul" that's protective and alert. She was a pleasant surprise, since I'm more for the little kid sidekicks in stories.  OK, back to Katie and Daniel. Daniel, former marine and a great man. Honorable and righteous, he's a great boss, cares for others and finds ways to be supportive of his family, friends and staff. Now, that my friends makes a great book boyfriend. However, though the romance was great (Kate and Daniel are perfect for each other), I continue to love the dynamics of the Elite Guardians Agency the most. They protect and they love. They love God, each other and people, in general. Their friendship is key and glue to all the Elite Guardians novels.  They each have a past, and Katie is no different. When Katie realize what is at stake, she needs to find courage to trust God and herself. 

Action packed, suspenseful, romantic in more ways than one and message to "trust, despite" makes for one thrilling and non-stop read. A story that's not only a story, but able to learn character building from, just perfect. 

Lucky for me, Moving Target is out next very soon!
