Always Watching

Guys, a small miracle happened in our house last night; my husband told me to pre-order a book. This is a major milestone as we are such opposites when it come to reading for enjoyment. While hubs tends towards avoiding it as much as possible and reading non-fiction at that, it’s not unusual for me to devour three fiction books a week. You know what convinced him? Lynette Eason is in the collection of stories.

I can’t even recall how I got him to read Always Watching, I can’t even remember how I got a copy as it’s not my normal genre. In all likelihood I won it off of someone else’s awesome blog. But, he did, and now he’s hooked. And while some of her stories can get a bit scary for me since I’m a pansy (even Jurassic Park gives me nightmares), I will keep reading her books forever and always because she’s a great writer and it’s something we both can enjoy. I’ve just learned to start her books on a Saturday morning when I have “nothing” to do and can get most of it read in a day (I read FAST ya’ll.) I am always surprised though when it gets to be late and I have to put it down because Lynette is so good at drawing you completely into her story world. I find her premise for this series very interesting as it revolves around an agency of female body guards. Go girl power! I love that Olivia defies cultural norms and kicks butt while her big strong man needs rescuing. What Olivia doesn’t know is that she might just be putting herself in the villain’s sights.

Bonus: I went to look up the Amazon link, and it looks like it’s free on Kindle right now!

always watchingThe bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have more than just skill and prowess in common–they’re also all women. When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians in order 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. Olivia has the feeling that she’s next on the list. And to complicate things even further, she realizes that her heart may be in as much danger as her client.

Bestselling author and fan favorite Lynette Eason drops readers right into the action in this fast-paced new series with a unique twist. Readers will love these strong female characters who put it all on the line to save lives.

Rescue Me

rescue-me

When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him–not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff’s department and PEAK Rescue, but in his private life. He’s the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father’s accidental death. And he’s the one–perhaps the only one–who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she’s nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.

Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on–namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.

Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.


Rescue Me is the second book in the Montana Rescue Series by Susan May Warren focused around a PEAK Rescue Team. While the main story focuses on Sam and Willow, we also dive into the relationship between Jess and Pete, though be prepared, as like Ian and Sierra, their story is on-going. We got a taste of Pete/Jess in Wild Montana Skies, and it was great to get to know both characters more in depth, along with the rest of the team and several other characters in Mercy Falls.

The action is jamb packed throughout the story and with multiple relationships developing, the story is firmly in the page-turner category. Even with several characters to follow, the storylines are easy to follow as you jump between viewpoints. I also think it’s interesting to see a rescue from both sides, i.e. the rescuer and rescuee, thought I suppose you could argue about who falls into what category.

I don’t dive into cover art comments too often, but I love this cover and the Sam is just too handsome. I must say I wasn’t imagining him quite so good looking in my mind, but, oh, after reading the story focused on him, it fits so well!

P.S. Susan’s author note at the end is touching. I usually skip over these, but am so glad I read it. Don’t forget to read it as well.
