Intensity. Skill. Tenacity.
The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.
When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians to protect his son. But when Wade's bodyguard is attacked and nearly killed, agency owner Olivia Edwards must step in and fill the gap.
Olivia's skills are about to be tested to the limit as Wade's stalker moves from leaving innocent gifts at his door to threatening those closest to him--including Olivia. But in her mind, even more dangerous than the threats to her life is the hold her handsome client has on her heart.

Olivia was a very strong heroine, but her constant push/pull with Wade and his emotions got annoying. I get that she wanted to maintain professional distance, but she should have just given in to her emotions rather than continually pushing Wade away. It made the relationship part at the end of the book rather unbelievable.
Wade was a complete idiot! He couldn't accept that the stalker meant him harm, so he did stupid stuff that wound up causing more problems for his bodyguards! He fought against their help at every step of the way, and wound up getting kidnapped and nearly killed for his trouble!
The story felt rather unbelievable at times, but it was action packed and held my attention well. I'll likely continue on with the series.
I figured out part of the mystery early in the novel, but I found myself questioning if I was right throughout the book. Regardless, this novel is fast-paced and you don’t have time to dwell on much before some other action is taking place. There were a few inconsistencies in the details and some elaborate elements of the plot that bordered on unbelievable. All-in-all, it definitely scored a five on tension and action.
The romance side of the novel is threaded throughout in spurts, but the main action revolves around the mystery and the spiritual growth of Olivia. If you are looking for a book heavy on romance, then this might not be your book. I skimmed through most of the romance parts because I felt it actually detracted from the action of the story. I didn’t really feel invested in their outcome as a couple.
The same held true for the characters themselves. I liked Olivia and Wade, but felt they could have been developed better. They weren’t flat, but at the same time, I just didn’t find myself investing in them – it was all about the whodunnit.
As far as the message, it was a simple learning to have faith message. Olivia didn’t trust in God, but through the story, she does. Like the characters and the romance, it just lacked the depth that would have made me really rave about this book.
I give it 4 stars because of the mystery alone and how Eason held my attention throughout. However, after the reveal, I really just skimmed through the ending. I feel like this was a first or second draft - all of the elements were there for an amazing book, but it just needed a little more depth in certain areas. However, the mystery was engaging enough for me to try more of Eason’s novels.
