Without Warning by Lynette Eason

Taut Writing and Breakneck Pacing That Will Keep Readers Up All Night 

Katie Singleton, a partner with the Elite Guardians Protection Agency, stumbles upon her next assignment quite by accident. Spotting blue lights at a familiar restaurant, she stops to investigate, only to discover that owner Daniel Matthews has become the target of someone who will go to any lengths to put him out of business. 

Daniel might be concerned, but he's not convinced that a bodyguard--and a female one at that--is necessary. A new attack and his niece's urgings are enough to make him reconsider. He and Katie must figure out who's behind the intimidation and threats--before a would-be killer strikes again. 
Witty dialogue and a simmering attraction will have readers flying through this tension-laced thriller. Eason exercises complete control of her readers' emotions as they race through the pages to discover the truth.

My review:

  I have been hooked on Lynette's books since the first one I read by her. Although they tend to be written for women more than men, I have enjoyed every book I have read by her.

 This series bugs me a bit, as the idea of female body guards guarding men just seems......weird.....but once I put that aside, I have been able to really enjoy this book and the one it follows.

 Without Warning brings back some of the same characters from the first book, and moves Katie Singleton to being one of the main characters. I liked her character a lot, as well as Daniel.....who was portrayed as needing a bodyguard without making him look weak or helpless.

  The book is packed with nonstop suspense and action. A lot happens in this book, and it had me guessing to who the guilty party was, although I was proud of myself to figure out a motive before it was disclosed.

 The romantic aspect was done well and wasn't overly gushy as some authors do. I read the book in one evening, and couldn't put it down until I finished it..... it is that good.

 This is the second book in the Elite Guardian Series, and though I'd recommend reading them in order, it isn't necessary to do so.

I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
