This novel comes in all forms including eBook, and is 336 pages in length. With a full-time job and a high-energy five-year old, this novel took me two days to read. I give this novel 5 STARS. This story is a Contemporary Christian Suspense novel.
This is the first Eason novel that I have read, but it will not be my last. This book is SO good. The characters are well written and realistic, the suspense is intense, and the action never stops. One aspect I love about this novel is that I truly could not put the book down. I kept telling myself, "I can read one more chapter!" I love books like this. Always Watching is just such a FUN read.
Olivia and Wade are the main characters in Always Watching. Olivia is one cool chick, and it's all believable. Once a police detective, Olivia now owns and operates the Elite Guardians Agency, a bodyguard company comprised of some seriously awesome women. Olivia is strong and smart and powerful, but she is also vulnerable and struggles with some serious issues from her past. I could totally understand her need to build up walls with everyone, including God, but I was really happy when she finally reconciled with God and brought some of those walls down. Those moments really made this novel a 5 for me. Wade is a man's man. He is also smart, compassionate, and protective. This all combines to make one hunky male-lead! I appreciate his frustration throughout this book with not being able to control everything. What a relatable quality! However, Wade does come to realize that you just have to give everything over to God, which is one of the best themes of this book. The relationship that grows between Olivia and Wade is very realistic. They work so hard to be professional, but it's quite obvious sparks fly from the very first meeting!
The suspense in this novel is intense. There are moments in the story where I could not breathe! It's really one crazy thing after another with this story. The mystery, for me, was easy to figure out, but I wasn't reading this book for the mystery. I was reading the book for a good, action-packed escape. And, boy, did I get that and more. Overall, I really loved this story and look forward to reading book 2 in the series. If you are looking for a novel to escape into that is a true page-turner, then I recommend Always Watching. You will not be disappointed.

Crystal3 Stars Out Of 5Just So-SoJune 14, 2017CrystalQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Olivia Edwards of Elite Guardians Agency has been hired to protect popular psychiatrist and talk radio show host, Wade Savage, and his daughter after Wade begins receiving threats from an admirer. At first, the threats consist of macabre gifts, but soon escalate to cryptic messages and attempts at physical harm. As the threat of danger becomes more real, Olivia is afraid that she may not be able to stop the stalker in time.
The plot in Always Watching was a little slow getting started but quickly picked up momentum as the danger factor rose. At every turn it seemed the stalker was outwitting Olivia and her team! When the identity of the stalker was revealed, I was completely surprised! I will say, though, that the romance factor fell flat. There was very little "romantic" interaction between Olivia and Wade, so if you're hoping for this angle to the story you will be disappointed.
This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I have not been compensated by the publisher or author in any way.
Inkwell Reviews2 Stars Out Of 5Reivew from inkwellreviews.comFebruary 13, 2017Inkwell ReviewsQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I was hesitant to review this book because I didnt like it and its a much better experience when you review books you love. I love Lynette Eason, which is another reason that I was disappointed.
Ok Here goes
The storyline is about Olivia Edwards who is hired to protect Wade, a radio talk show host who has been getting strange threats. The organization that Olivia created is an all-woman agency. This I dont understand. Is this trying to push some kind of feminism? If so, shouldnt men be allowed in it. You know, equal rights and all? The whole series is about these woman, while I havent read any others in this series I am 90% sure that that they all fall in love with their clients, which is very unprofessional in and of itself. I was very unimpressed with her and her group.
Im sorry if Im spoiling anything for you, but Olivia never even stops Wade from getting into really dangerous situations. She didnt even do her job. I guess she kept him alive but just barely.
Honestly, Lynette Eason was one of my favorite authors. I really didnt want to dislike it, but I cant help it. I have bought every single one of her books but I will not be purchasing Without Warning (the next book in this series). I really hope her next series is better.
Mackenzie Carol4 Stars Out Of 5Always WatchingDecember 19, 2016Mackenzie CarolQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Always Watching is the first book in Lynette Easons Elite Guardians series, and is also the first book I have ever read by her. I havent really had a lot of success when trying out new suspense novels in the past so I was a little unsure when I picked up this novel, but I have to say, I really enjoyed it! Although it took me quite some time to finally find the time to get through it, once I got to the extremely suspenseful ending, it was pretty much smooth sailing to the end. I had a few suspicions as to who the stalker was, but I didnt know for sure and I absolutely had no idea who his/her accomplice was, so I desperately wanted to get to the end and find out. I have to say, once I did, I was completely floored!
Olivia Edwards is such an amazing character! I feel like that is such an empty statement, but there are no wordsor none that I am willing to usethat can truly describe how really awesome she is, with all her tough as nails, Ill protect you at all costs, bodyguard stuff. Shes truly fantastic, but what I really loved was getting to know the heart on the inside behind all her strong exterior. She had such a tumultuous past, full of the type of heartbreak and pain no one should ever have to go through, and it helped me to better understand why she is the way that she is.
Wade Savage is an extremely stubborn character! All while Olivia is trying to help him he continually places himself in the path of danger, and though I know it is just because he is a protector at heart, if I was Olivia I would have completely lost my patience with him! Otherwise, he was a completely wonderful and caring manand I guess that protective instinct just proves my pointand I loved watching him interact with his daughter, Amy.
All in all, this is definitely a very interesting story, and the mystery most certainly kept me captivated from page one. Wades stalker was a really serious threat, and was an extremely terrible person who committed some very serious crimes! Every time I read a suspense or mystery novel, I am taken aback by how horrible humans can be when theyre taken over by sin, and this book was no exception. I am happy to give this story four out of five bookshelves, for being a very enjoyable read, despite some of the conversation being a little bit surface-y at times (yes, I know that isnt technically a word). I have to say, the unexpected twists and turns had to be my favorite part about this novel, and I am excited to read more of Lynettes books in the future!
