Without Warning by Lynette Eason


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. – from author’s website

Eason doesn’t disappoint in this fast-paced story that keeps you guessing. The characters bring the story to life and even though you most likely will never experience what they do, they are easy to relate to. In this second installation of the Elite Guardians series, the suspense doesn’t let you rest for long. Weaved throughout the suspense and trying to figure out who is behind everything, there are some tender moments between the two main characters which leave you wishing for everything to work out between the two of them. I love how Eason brings in secondary characters and sets up some of the characters story lines for the upcoming books in the series. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, don’t worry. Eason’s books can be read as stand-alones. Without Warning is a suspenseful book with a cute little romance between the main characters.

Wild and Free by Jess Connolly & Haley Morgan


For all the fullness of God available to His daughters, we often feel limited by two defining insecurities: I am too much, and I am not enough.

Co-authors and best friends Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have felt the same, until one essential question turned the tables on it all: If God is wild and free and he created women, what does this mean for us today?

Wild and Free is an anthem and an invitation in equal parts to find freedom from the cultural captivity that holds us back, and freedom to step into the wild and holy call of God in our lives. With fresh biblical insight tracing all the way back to Eve and a treasury of practical application, the authors reveal how women today can walk in the true liberty we already have in Jesus. – from LifeWay

Wild and Free gave two different perspectives on what it meant to live wild and free with Christ as a woman. I liked how the authors had different personalities and temperaments to include both the “strong woman” and “meek woman”. We both need to live wild and free and the authors captured what it means from both sides. I also liked that they included a response at the end of the chapter from the other on how that chapter also applied to them. The book also gave a different perspective than what culture often makes me think of what wild and free living is like.
