Intensity. Skill. Tenacity.
The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

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.

My thoughts: WITHOUT WARNING is the second book in Ms. Eason's Elite Guardians series but it easily stands alone.  Daniel Matthews is flabbergasted when someone targets him by framing him for a murder then burning down his restaurant. Who has a vendetta against him--and why?  His niece is worried for his life and hires Katie Singleton to guard him -- thus beginning the series of what should be fatal attacks against Daniel. 

I did figure out who the bad guy was right away because I know the formula. And once the police officer mentioned there was an accomplish I went to work figuring out who that would be. And yes, I got that, too. But I didn't know why. And for the life of me I couldn't figure that out. So I had to keep reading to find out why. 

I usually love Ms. Eason's books. She's one of my favorite romantic suspense authors, but for some reason this book didn't grab me. Maybe there's too much drama in my own life, maybe not, but I couldn't care about these characters. I tried. I do like the way Eason works in a faith message and I will read the third book in this series, so she isn't losing me as a reader.  Considering all the five and four star reviews, it's probably just me and I might enjoy it more if I read it when there's less drama in my life. 

So don't take my word for it!  If you love romantic suspense and Lynette Eason, grab your copy of WITHOUT WARNING now. 

I was given a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

I haven't read any of Lynette Eason books. There's only certain times I want to be reading a romantic suspense. My work gives me plenty of drama. LOL
