IMPENDING STRIKE by Lynette Eason and Sami A. Abrams, Reviewed by Rebecca and Paula


"The most beautiful angel stood over him. Her dark brown hair with an unusual purple streak flowed from her shoulders. . . He blinked the haze from his vision. Not an angel. A gorgeous woman."

"But who are you?" . . . Charlie didn't remember her. After being beaten within an inch of his life during an undercover assignment gone awry, Charlie Lee has lost his memory of the past four years, which means he doesn't remember his Elite Guardian partner Lizzie Tremaine. And Lizzie kind of likes this unencumbered version of the typically happy-go-lucky, borderline flirty Charlie. But in reality nothing has changed; Charlie's life is still in jeopardy, and Lizzie will never allow her feelings for Charlie to cross the line between professional and personal. . . she won't, she just can't.

This story! It was so enjoyable to join this author as she maneuvered through a genuinely complex plot line while tenderly and intentionally drawing two hearts together that should have joined forces all along; Hotshot and his lady! ("Lizzy Tremaine, will you be my girl?"- swoon-worthy stuff!)

"I'm choosing to trust God with you. He's the one with the plan for our lives and no amount of me trying to control that is going to change anything."

Welcome to the world of Elite Guardians where danger lurks with every assignment. It takes everyone to figure things out when Charlie, on an undercover job gets beaten up and losses his short-term memory, as he slowly regains bits and pieces of his life, he questions his relationship with his partner Lizzie. Is she his partner and friend or much more?

The excitement never lets up and is downright scary at times with drugs and arms deals and many a bomb threat.

This kept me turning pages to find out what happened to not only the threats, but the romance of Lizzie and Charlie. A great addition to the series, I enjoyed the camaraderie among the team members and the banter between Charlie and Lizzie. Can’t wait to read the next installment.

BackCover Blurb:
He loves her, but he can’t have her…

Elite Guardian Charlie Lee knows that there is no future with the woman he loves—fellow Guardian Lizzie Tremaine. And he gets it. Lizzie’s a single mom focused on protecting her daughter, and Charlie’s got his own baggage anyway. It’s easier, and safer, to keep things the way they are.

Then, the unthinkable happens. While Charlie is undercover, he’s seriously injured…and his memory of the past four years is gone. But maybe it’s the fresh start he didn’t know he longed for.

And now he’s getting too close…

Lizzie cares for Charlie, but she’s lost all the men she’s ever loved and can’t risk her heart again. Still, she’s determined to protect Charlie, and help him discover who attacked him—and why.

But in the process, she begins to discover an unburdened, impossible-to-resist version of the man she knows. And—along with the details of his attack—Charlie seems to have forgotten their reasons for keeping things platonic. Suddenly, all of their self-imposed rules are gone, and Lizzie needs things to get back to normal, stat.

It’s her heart…or his life.

Problem is, the closer Charlie gets to uncovering his memories, the closer he gets to trouble. What will protecting Charlie cost Lizzie?

Another edge-of-your-seat Elite Guardian thriller!
