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.
Without Warning is a nice addition to Lynette Eason’s Elite Guardians series. This time we follow guardian/bodyguard Katie Singleton. She happens to be driving home one night when she notices policemen at the restaurant of owner Daniel Matthews who is the uncle of one of her self-defense students, Riley. A dead body has been found hanging in the basement of his restaurant and one of Daniel’s other places has gone up in flames all in the same night. Coincidence? Nobody seems to think it is. Because of this, 17 year old Riley decides to hire Katie and her team to protect her uncle so she does not lose him as her parents have already died in a car accident. However, Daniel is not your usual client as he is a former marine and has skills of his own.
This was a fast paced ride and the villain was quite wacked out. He/she did not seem to give the characters a moment of peace and they were constantly on their toes trying to stay one step ahead and trying not to get killed. I liked the chemistry between Katie and Daniel and I enjoyed visiting the whole team again. The stark white covers with the smoke around the characters I think are some of the best suspense covers I have seen. I look forward to Maddie’s story next.
