About the Book
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?
In My Opinion
The second book in the Elite Guardians Collection includes non-stop action, a team of bodyguards you will root for, and a friends-to-more romance. If you have read Lynette Eason’s Elite Guardians book and the first in Sunrise Publishing’s new series, you’ve gotten to know Charlie and Lizzie a little bit.
Charlie’s amnesia opened a convenient way for Eason and Sami. A. Abrams to give new readers some of Charlie’s backstory to new readers. It also made a good refresher for those of us who needed some brushing up and tied well into the current storyline. And it was kind of fun to see a different side of Charlie as he slowly gained back his memories and kept Lizzie second guessing her feelings toward the man.
There is a lot of action happening in this book. It seems Charlie or Charlie and Lizzie would just get out of a sticky situation when another bulldozed them. But that’s exactly what kept me turning the pages of this book.
Impending Strike is a book romantic suspense fans should move to the top of their to-read list.
