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.

The story begins with Wade’s stalker showing up at a dinner. She’s jealous of the woman he has with him, and the reader learns she’s capable of killing.
The book quickly shifts to here and now. Madelyn McKay has been assigned to tail Wade. She’s part of a team of bodyguards, headed up by Quinn. She knows her stuff, and she’s ready. Except that the stalker is one step ahead of them. Madelyn gets a dart in her and her throat cut. She’s barely alive when the emergency crew gets to her.
Soon, Wade walks out of his work into a darkened parking lot. He senses a presence. He, too, is poisoned with a dart . . . and is taken to the hospital.
Wade is the father of a precocious twelve-year-old, Amy. When he recovers enough to go home, he finds out that his father had hired the bodyguards. Amy suffers from anxiety attacks, and Wade will protect her at all costs. He isn’t happy with the bodyguard detail and wants to live his life as normally as possible, even if it puts him in danger.
Until they almost get Amy.
Always Watching is full of action, to put it lightly. Though I guessed the identity of stalker, I didn’t figure out her accomplice until just before it was revealed. There’s a little bit of realistic romance, and a lot of action. No graphic violence, no kissing (except light pecks on the cheek and forehead), and no bad language. This book is strongly Christian from the very beginning.
Besides a compelling plot—who doesn’t want to catch a stalker?—I enjoyed getting a thorough education about what bodyguards do, how they secure an area, and how they advise their clients. Even though Wade doesn’t always take their advice, he becomes more aware of why they do what they do—and that the consequences are literally as important as life and death.
Most of this novel is about Olivia, one of the bodyguards in the group, and her interaction with Wade and his family. It’s fascinating how the author develops the characters! I think you’ll want to read this one!
Unfortunately the women were quite incompetent in their job. A couple of times they let a 12 year old girl out of their protection and placed in danger. There was also the problem with the medical examiner not knowing the difference between suicide and murder by gunshot wound.
There was a lot of potential here, just wasn't realized. Story fell into cliched territory. I didn't mind the religious overtones, actually added authenticity to the characters.
