Winter Reads: Without Warning by Lynette Eason


Revell; 350 pages; $14.99; Amazon

With a mixture of coffee and protein snacks this week, I have managed to reread the first two books in the Elite Guardian series by author Lynette Eason. (You can read my review for the book here!).

Published last fall through Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, Without Warning centers on a bodyguard company called the Elite Guardians Protection Agency.

While the first novel followed the agency's owner, the second installment centers on Katie Singleton, who had a brief part in book one. Instead of being assigned a new assignment, she stumbles upon one; well, she more or less accidentally finds a deadly plot to harm Daniel Matthews, a restaurant owner.

Final Thoughts: While Without Warning does connect to the first novel, it's more of standalone novel with a brand new plot. It follows a similar theme with a female bodyguard protecting a man, and of course there is a romance plot tossed about.

Yes, it feels a bit cliched, somewhat like a silly made-for-Lifetime movie, but it works well here. The author keeps the chapters short, which helps amp up the overall pacing. The two main characters, while likeable, were a bit stereotyped to me.

If you noticed that I keep using the word "bit" in this review, it's because there are few bits and scenes that I liked and several others that I didn't care much for.

In the end, I thought Without Warning was a fast-paced, suspenseful read; however, the book is held down by a few cliched, predictable moments.
