Always watching is the first book in Lynette Eason's new Elite Guardians Series
Olivia Edwards operates an all female private security company. 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. Wade's father hires Olivia's 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 to admitted his 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 scenario's 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.

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.
