When her company is hired to protect a famous radio psychiatrist, she soon discovers this is anything but an average job.
Wade Savage has a problem. He is being stalked. He thinks that he can handle the problem until the stalker turns their deadly attention to his daughter Amy. Wades father hires Olivias firm to protect his son and granddaughter.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found that although the roles of who is the protector and who is being protected are reversed, Olivia was no less a women just because she was the one taking all the risk. She is not written as an over the top, female jock that we see so much of in movies and on TV. She is still a woman with all the thoughts and feeling that go with that. Wade likewise was still very masculine, intelligent and even a hero in his admitted need for help protecting his daughter. Sometimes it is easy to get carried away when writing such strong characters so I was very impressed at how realistic the author wrote these characters.
The author also incorporated God and faith into the story. Wade was a strong Christian and his faith in God shined within the story. Olivia character had a background that made her keep God at a distance. I found both of these scenarios something that as a reader I could connect with.
The story was a fact-paced thriller with a budding romance that will keep a reader up until the earlier morning hours needing to know what is on the next page.
I cant wait for the rest of the series.
4.5 out of 5 stars for a nearly perfect book.
Rosa5 Stars Out Of 5Action packed suspense!August 27, 2016RosaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you like Christian romantic suspense, this is a must read! Always Watching is yet another gripping, good-to-the-last-page novel. Ive read all of Lynette Easons books, and loved each one. However, I think this one might be her best yet!
Always Watching is the first book in a new series, Elite Guardians. It starts off with a bang, right from the first chapter. There is a lot of intensity, action that will keep you guessing until the end.
Olivia is a member of the Elite Guardians, a team of female bodyguards (I love this conceptits different!) hired to protect Wade Savage, a well-known radio show celebrity. Hes being stalked, and now he and his daughter Amy are in danger. Olivia puts her lifeand her heartin danger as she works to protect Wade and Amy, racing against the clock to figure out who the stalker is before anyone else dies.
The ending was great, a complete surprise for me. I kept guessing, but was not able to solve the mystery of the stalker myself. There were some cleverly-misleading clues given here and there.
Olivia is a character I liked immediately because shes real. Her issues were real. Shes attracted to Wade, which is a no-no, because he is her client. Wades faith in God strengthens this story, and allows us to see Olivias journey to trusting God.
I was given a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for my honest opinion.
And now I cant wait to read the next book in the series, Without Warning, coming this summer.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Always WatchingJuly 6, 2016Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4ALWAYS WATCHING is a fast paced romantic suspense, the first book in the much anticipated (by this reader) new series by Lynette Eason. I borrowed this book from a friend to read (so was not obligated to review) but I will because I really loved it.
Once I picked up ALWAYS WATCHING my attention was completely snared by the plot. Even the opening chapter, written in the "bad guys" point of view grabbed me. I had to keep reading. I was so engaged in the story I forgot to even try to figure out who was behind the attacks until about three-fourths of the way through, then I started having suspicions and trying to work it out. There was a twist I didn't see coming which is all I'll say about that since I don't want to give anything away.
If you like romantic suspense, you will love ALWAYS WATCHING. The sexual tension between Wade and Olivia isn't as palpable as in some of Ms. Eason's previous books, but the suspense tension is definitely high as you wonder how Wade's stalker knows him and his schedule so well.
A definite twist on who the body guards are, a group of strong female characters who have untold resources and abilities. ALWAYS WATCHING is a great book.
footballgal5 Stars Out Of 5Kept Me on the Edge of my Seat!July 5, 2016footballgalQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Topping my favorites list for romantic suspense, this book is one of the best modern suspense novels I have read! It was intense and kept me on the edge of my seat, I couldn't put the book down because I simply had to know what was going to happen next. Author Lynette Eason leaves the reader guessing about what will happen next as she takes you through the twists and turns of this insane thriller. It is a race against death, will Olivia and the Elite Guardians be able to stop Wade Savage's stalker before it's too late? Though this book is labeled romantic suspense and that's indeed what it is, it isn't focused solely on Wade and Olivia's romance, it was focused more on surviving the eyes and mind of those always watching. I enjoyed both immensely. The characters were very likeable, especially Wade's daughter Amy, not only was she likeable but she was very relatable since she dealt with anxiety. I appreciate Ms. Eason's effort she put into bringing to life the struggles of her character. This book was my cup of coffee to say the least but I must warn you that if you don't like high suspense with shooting and more, than this book probably isn't for you. However if that's something you enjoy than I highly, highly recommend this book to you! My personal rating five stars! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Wow! I couldn't put this book down ... Romantic suspense veteran Lynette Eason gives us a fast paced, exciting plot that flips the typical bodyguard/protector trope upside-down.
It was a neat twist that Olivia is the "protector" instead of the usual romantic suspense plots of the man having to protect the heroine. However, that didn't make Wade any less masculine or a less attractive love interest. They have great chemistry.
The main characters were likeable, honest, hardworking people. I easily connected to them like they were my friends. I felt anxious and fearful for both Olivia and Wade as the mysterious stalker escalates from leaving Wade things to harming others. Several times I thought I knew who the stalker was, but with unforeseen twists, I discovered I was wrong. It'll keep you guessing until the end!
Lynette Eason's Elite Guardians series is off to an amazing start! I look forward to reading Without Warning, featuring Olivia's co-worker, Katie Singleton, releasing later this summer.
