I was looking forward to book two of this suspenseful series! I really enjoy suspense so when it came to joining the launch team, I had to apply. They sent me the ebook for review.


Protecting him just might cost her everything...

Elite Guardian Charlie Lee knows that there is no future with the woman he loves-fellow Guardian Lizzie Tremaine. And, he gets it-as a single mom, Lizzie has to protect her daughter. But more than anything, he wants the chance to prove himself.

Then, the unthinkable happens-while working undercover, Charlie is seriously injured...and his memory of the past four years is lost. Could it be the fresh start that he didn't realize he longed for?

Despite a friendship that's turned flirtatious at times, Lizzie Tremaine has held Charlie at arms' length. She's lost all the men she's ever loved, and is

unwilling to risk her heart again. Still, she's glad to keep an eye on him-as his bodyguard-and while she's at it, help him put the pieces of his past

together, including discovering who attacked him, and why.

But Charlie seems to have forgotten their agreed-upon professional distance-and suddenly, all the rules are off the table. She's seeing a side of Charlie she could possibly let into her heart. Problem is, the closer he gets to uncovering his memories, the closer he gets to trouble.

It's her heart...or his life. What will protecting Charlie cost her?

My Review:

I was looking forward to getting to know Charlie and Lizzie better after reading book one. Their story is one of constant action.

It's clear from the start that both Charlie and Lizzie have a lot in their past to overcome. Charlie, working undercover starts getting himself into a lot of trouble. I would say it "felt" like something bad happened to this guy constantly and that's because it does! He can't escape people trying to take his life. Lizzie is supposed to keep him safe, but somehow the bad guys keep getting close to him.

There's a lot of action, and sometimes it seems like Lizzie is blamed for things she has no control over because she's done her due diligence along with Charlie as her back-up. I was actually getting irritated with the characters because Olivia, Charlie's sister, and Lizzie were both blaming her for things she couldn't have anticipated.

I liked the Guardians all working together to help solve all of the crimes happening. I like keeping connected to all of the characters through each story because it makes me feel more invested in the team.

I was surprised at the ending and actually wouldn't have been able to connect the dots without events that happened to "out" the person. I always love when an author keeps you guessing! Both characters have to work through a crisis of faith to find healing.

Sami A. Abrams grew up hating to read. It wasn't until her 30s that she found authors who captured her attention. Now, most evenings you can find her engrossed in a romantic suspense novel. In her opinion, a crime plus a little romance is the recipe for a great story. Sami lives in Northern California, but she will always be a Kansas girl at heart. She has a love of sports, family, and travel. However, a cabin at Lake Tahoe writing her next story is definitely at the top of her list. Visit her at http: //www.samiaabrams.com.
