Release Date: February 2, 2016

Publisher: Revell

ISBN: 9780800723262

Genre: Fiction / Romantic Suspense

Series: Elite Guardians, Book 1

The plot of Always Watching is intriguing and original. Eason keeps you on your toes while you’re trying to figure out who the stalker is. Heck, I had no idea who it was until it was finally revealed!

Due to it being considered suspense, I was looking forward to a fast-paced thriller that will keep one on their toes. I was disappointed to find that it was actually a slow read because it was boring for awhile. I kept reading with the hope that it would redeem itself in the end. In fact, it was the ending where things finally get exciting and thrilling.
