New Release Review! Without Warning (Vigilance #2) Desiree Holt!
Without Warning (Vigilance) - Desiree Holt

 

 

When you don’t know how the story will end . . .
 
After years of hard work honing his craft, Blake Edwards is now an international bestselling author. But one thing he never imagined was that his fictional world would become all too real. When a stalker turns Blake’s latest book tour into a treacherous and nearly deadly trap, it’s time for Blake to hire protection. But the body assigned to keep an eye on him is someone he never wants out of his sight...
 
As a bodyguard for Vigilance, the private security agency in Blake’s hometown of Arrowhead Bay, Samantha Quenel has found the perfect outlet for her military experience. But her latest client is also a former high school flame, which might explain her willingness to protect Blake at all costs—even if that means staying in the same room with him, on the same bed, under the same torrid sheets...

 

 

 

Desiree Holt’s Without Warning is a thrilling read full of fascinating characters and suspense that kept me turning the pages in anticipation of finding out what would happen next.

 

Blake and Samantha have lots of sizzling chemistry and an heated attraction that heats up the pages of this romance, but the couple has a rocky past that adds to the tension and with the whole ‘not fraternizing with the client’ thing going on it keeps the suspense of whether they will have a happily ever after until the very end. The suspense of Blake’s stalker keeps readers on the edge of their seat throughout the story with lots of twists and thrill building events that pushes at the couple’s emotions and this story has another mystery that keeps readers wanting to know more… Blake has no idea why he was targeted which adds to the uncertainty of the situation.

 

Desiree Holt paints vivid imagery that makes it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene and brings her characters to life with the dialogue and vibrant personalities so that readers feel as if they have really gotten to know them. I was caught up in the story from the very beginning and though this is the first book that I have read in the Vigilance series, Vigilance Security has caught my attention so I will be reading Hide and Seek and looking for A Deadly Business when it releases in August.

 

 

 

Without Warning is the 2nd book in the Vigilance series.

 

The 3rd book A Deadly Business is set to release on August 21, 2018.

 

Without Warning is available in print or ebook at:

mixed feelings
Without Warning (Vigilance) - Desiree Holt

Blake had the piece of paper that said “ I know what you did “ - whoever this was moved like a ghost -silent and unseen, leaving Blake taunting messages. Who was doing this- a reader he had offended? A blogger? A reviewer? The notes showed up in different cities-wherever Blake had a signing. Different hotels and venues. Someone was tracking his tour. Not just the cities but the facilities- bookstores, event centers, wherever. Blake really wanted to enjoy his success a little after the hard climb it took to get to this point. After this signing blake had a week off. Sam and Blake had a crush on each other but only had one date as Sam wasn’t in the click Blake was in and his friends convinced hois to leave her alone and he did. That really hurt Sam. It had been fifteen years since that incident but neither had forgotten the other. Sam had been in the military for eight years and now worked for a very prestigious security firm- Vigilance - that was now based in Blake’s home town.  Blake and his agent decided he needed a bodyguard as the stalker was stepper up with his notes with threats now. Blake got an appointment to see someone at Vigilance and he was given a bodyguard and it just so happened to be Sam. Sam is cool to Blake part of it is a normal part of the job the other was personal. The same attraction was still there. Sam tried to fight it would not be right or safe to be sleeping with the person she was to protect.

I enjoyed this book but I did have mixed feelings about it. I didn’t really connect with Sam. Not the fact after a long time there were still feelings and mistrust you move on with your life especially from HS.i did love this had a lot of twists and turns. I also really enjoyed the suspense, intrigue,  and drama. I felt the ending was rushed. I did figure out who the stalker was but that was ok with me still enjoyed the book. This was a quick read with a good pace. I really liked how Sam was a female yet became Blake’s bodyguard. I would have liked to rate this 3.5 but can’t so had to give a three.

Awesome Romantic Suspense
Without Warning (Vigilance) - Desiree Holt

Without Warning by Desiree Holt is a must read if you enjoy romantic suspense.  Ms. Holt has once again delivered a well-written book and packed it with lovable, amazing characters.  Blake is an author with a stalker problem.  Samantha is a bodyguard working for Vigilance.  Samantha and Blake's story is an exciting second chance romance with plenty of action, drama, suspense and Ms. Holt's special spice.  This book hooked me at the prologue and held me captive until the last word.  Kudos to Ms. Holt for another fabulous read.  Without Warning is book 2 of the Vigilance Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Steamy Quick Read
Cupid's Shaft - Desiree Holt

Cupid's Shaft by Desiree Holt is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  This short Valentine story is well-written and the characters are adorable.  Jessie is dumped by her boyfriend just before Valentine's Day so she takes herself off to her cabin for a few days.  Riley is stranded when his car breaks down during a snowstorm.  Riley and Jessie's story is packed with drama, humor and smokin' hot sex.  I enjoyed reading Cupid's Shaft and can't wait for my next book by Desiree Holt.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Awesome Suspense!
Lethal Design (The Omega Team Series Book 3) - Desiree Holt

Lethal Design by Desiree Holt is an amazing romantic suspense book.  Ms. Holt has delivered a book that once started, you can't put down.  Shannon is a video game designer.  Owen is a bodyguard for the Omega Team.  When strange things happen to Shannon, Owen is assigned as her bodyguard.  Their story is packed with action, suspense, humor, and 5 alarm fire heat.  I loved this book from cover to cover and can't wait for my next book by Desiree Holt.  Lethal Design is book 3 of the Omega Team Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I read a print copy of this book.
