Without Warning by Lynette Easonwithoutwarning
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: August 2, 2016

For edge-of-your-seat, finger-clenching, teeth-gritting suspense, look no further than Lynette Eason’s “Without Warning”, book 2 in her Elite Guardians series. And, the romance is pretty swoon-worthy as well. I’ve been reading Ms. Eason’s books for a number of years, and every single one has grabbed me by the throat from the first to the last words of the story, spinning a tale of such realistic imagination that I fully expect to see the crime report in the paper the next day.

In “Without Warning,” restaurateur Daniel Matthews appears to be the target of a malicious stalker. As event upon event stacks up, worry for his safety prompts Riley, Daniel’s niece, to hire her self-defense instructor to serve as a personal bodyguard for her uncle. She’s already lost her parents; she can’t lose her uncle as well. Daniel, on the other hand, may be concerned about what’s happening, but as a former military man, he feels like he can take care of himself without backup.

Katie Singleton arrives on the scene of Daniel’s first crisis just in time to rush with him to the second. As part of the Elite Guardians Protection Service, Katie’s skills are respected from the city government, to the police station. She’s not used to anyone questioning her abilities — be they military or law enforcement. Can she convince Daniel that it never hurts to have someone watching your back before his stalker escalates even further?

I appreciated the fact that both of the main characters were, in their own way, wounded warriors. For some, the scars are visible, but for these two the nightmares aren’t limited to nighttime. I liked that their skills complemented one another and they were able to help each other on their individual roads to forgiving themselves. I also liked that neither one discounted the contribution Daniel’s 15-year-old niece could make to the investigation — even though sometimes she poked her nose where it didn’t belong.

Suspense lovers NEED to read this series! Lynette Eason definitely rocks the genre here! I haven’t read the first book, “Always Watching,” yet but I didn’t feel “out of the loop” by starting with book 2, and I know from my previous Eason experience that each book will be a gripping, can’t-put-it-down thrill ride from beginning to end. Book 3, “Moving Target,” comes out in January, and you can bet I’m eagerly awaiting the third installment!

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Rated PG: Bullets fly, someone dies, and the suspense is intense. Not recommended for children.
