WATCH ME – Book 1

Do you like to watch?

Watching gorgeous Gwen Hawthorne isn’t a hard job—but it certainly is tempting. Chance Valentine has tried to keep his distance from the sexy socialite for years, but when her father hires him to keep watch on her—as a twenty-four, seven bodyguard—Chance knows his control is about to be pushed to the limit.
Chance soon realizes that he isn’t the only one watching Gwen. Someone else is out there, a stalker who won’t rest until Gwen is destroyed. Every day, every moment…Gwen is in danger. And Chance knows that if he can’t unmask the stalker, then he may just lose the only woman he has ever loved.


★✩ My Thoughts ✩★
I've always enjoyed reading something from Cynthia Eden. Whether it's something paranormal or high intensity suspense, it's always a guaranteed good time to be had. Watch Me gave me plenty of heat and left me on the edge of my seat while I tried to figure out who the heck was trying to kill all of these people. While I was invested in the second chance at a relationship Gwen and Chance were getting, I was absolutely absorbed with the idea of a stalker/killer on the loose. The fact that whodunit was not someone I had guessed only made this story better. So if you like a story about a mysterious psycho and a damsel's need for the protection of the guy who got away, you're in for a treat!

WANT ME - Book 2

Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.

Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.

Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.

★✩ My Thoughts ✩★
This was just as thrilling as the last. After saving Sophie's life in Watch Me, Lex is put on protective duty again when her life is in danger. Neither of them can deny their intense sexual chemistry, which seems to get in the way of the investigation. Is Sophie using him? As a lawyer, she's used to keeping secrets, but when her secrets hindered rather than helped Lex to keep her safe, I wanted to knock her upside the head. What's with these women not trusting the men they've gone to for help? Why did you choose them in the first place? And why do they suffer absolutely no consequences??? Anyhoo, a psycho is once again on the loose and although this time I was close enough to narrow my suspects down, I was still surprised. Another winner in my book!

NEED ME – Book 3

Innocent…or guilty?

The cops think that Julianna Smith is a murderer. No one will listen when Julianna claims she’s innocent, and as the suspicions mount against her, only Julianna knows the truth…a killer is hunting her. Somewhere in the darkness, a stalker is closing in and preparing to deliver a final justice that she can’t escape.

Devlin Shade isn’t a man who trusts easily, and when Julianna Smith walks into VJS Protection, he’s well aware of her reputation—the sexy blond could be a cold-blooded murderer. Only when he looks at her, cold is the last thing that Devlin feels. There’s an instant attraction between them—hot, fierce, primal. And he agrees to take her case. He’ll be her bodyguard. He’ll keep her safe from the enemy hunting her, and he’ll also find out the truth about the mysterious Julianna. If she is a killer, he’ll turn her over to the cops himself.

★✩ My Thoughts ✩★
I sometimes felt that Julianna was her own worst enemy. She was on trial for the murder of her husband and she truly didn't remember killing him. No one believes her and someone is out to get her. Her lawyer (Sophie from the last book) refers her to VJS and Devlin is on the case. He's a pretty straight arrow but he knows that life isn't black and white. He grew up in all kinds of messed up shades of grey. So why is it, when she knows that he's on her side, even if it might be because he's being paid to be there, why does she insist on lying??? The guy literally saved her from blowing up with her car, gunshots, vehicular homicide, etc., and yet still... she lies. She keeps her secrets even from her lawyer who is trying to SAVE HER LIFE!! I was waiting for someone, anyone, to really call her out. But once again, the damsel who believes herself to be as skilled as the professionals, suffered no consequences. Whatever. At least there was plenty of suspense, action, and hot sex scenes to be had.

BEWARE OF ME – Book 4

Criminal. Killer. Monster. Ethan Barclay has been called many things in life, and he usually doesn’t care what people say about him. He’s tough, hard, and brutal when he needs to be. But even the most dangerous of men can have a weakness. Ethan’s weakness has—and always will be—Carly Shay.

Their pasts are tied together—twisted and melded by blood and death. Walking away from Carly was the hardest thing that Ethan ever did, but it was also his one good deed. He knew Carly deserved far better than him, and he wanted her to have a perfect life, a life that didn’t involve paying for Ethan’s sins.

Only now the secrets from their past have been revealed, and Carly’s life is on the line.

★✩ My Thoughts ✩★
Carly was the sister of Julianna, the heroine from the previous book. Ethan was the man who seemed to be everywhere and involved in every thing. He and Carly shared a brutal past and a moment of insanity binds them together for life. However, it's been years and after Ethan sent her away, for her own safety mind you, she's been trying to move on with her life. Nothing she does really works and now it's too late because Ethan is back because her life is once again in danger. Old enemies are gunning for her and the only person standing between her and certain death is the one man she believes isn't good for her. While I absolutely hated the way Carly not only viewed Ethan, but how she treated him, I loved Ethan far too much to hold it against how much I enjoyed this story. From the beginning of this series, he's been colored as the villain of every tale. He's dangerous and death seems to follow him around. Yet, I found that he was so much more than everyone assumed. There were many reasons for why the women in his life constantly leap to his defense and I'm so happy that the author gave us a chance to see him for who he really is. He may just be my favorite hero of this entire series and I have no regrets. Between the crazily intense action and suspense scenes and the sensual chemistry he shared with Carly, I found it impossible to put this book down. When I got to the end, I didn't want to let go.

In conclusion, if you're a fan of strong characters, being on tenterhooks trying to figure out what happens next, and instalove, you're gonna love this!
