Always Watching by Lynette Eason

When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians 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 - including Olivia. But in her mind, even more dangerous than the threats to her life is the hold her handsome client has on her heart.

 Review: This is quite the crime story. From the get-go "Always Watching" has a unique bend to it. Unlike most private detective agencies written about in novels, Elite Guardians is run by a woman and staffed by women. The girls at E.G. are tough, well trained, beautiful, and ready to dish out a lot more than the bad guys would ever expect.

Olivia Edwards, the mastermind behind Elite Guardians, is well trained, scientific, and determined to do an excellent job protecting her client and bringing the stalker to justice. As Olivia gets to know her client and his adorable daughter, she becomes more and more determined to see them to safety as her own emotions become invested.

Unfortunately, the longer Olivia remains Wade's guardian the more aware she becomes that no one in his life can be trusted. As the incidents become more deadly, Olivia and her team scramble to put the clues together before she looses Wade for good.

I liked the story line of this book, the strong female lead in the unlikely role of protecting a man and his daughter, and the constant question of "Who done it?". Lynette Eason has written a fast-paced book that really toys with your emotions as you race through the pages to find out what happens. This book was not excellent, but it was good.

The one thing I did not like about this book was the graphic violence. There were a few scenes in "Always Watching" that were so vividly described and the crimes to heinous that it really bothered me. For that reason, I would not recommend this novel to a teenage audience but would instead suggest that it be fore mature adults only.

Thank-you so much to Graf Martin Commmunications for a copy of this book!
