Guardian Ranger
Guardian Ranger - Cynthia Eden

Veronica's brother, Cale, is missing. She turns to Jasper, an ex-military friend of Cale's. Unbeknownst to her, Jasper is also looking for Cale. It appears that Cale is guilty of murder. Jasper works for an elite, off the books type, government agency. 
Veronica was nice, although very sheltered. She grew on me as the book progressed and I liked how she came out of her shell. Yes, this contemporary romantic suspense still hit a pet peeve of mine (the heroine is a virgin- at 28).
I realize there were some things that Jasper couldn't share. My issue is he had moments where he lied and I didn't think he had to. He could have been more honest (to a point). Veronica forgave Jasper too quickly. Overall, this was satisfying. 
I do know who the next couple is (Sydney and Gunner), with Cale's coming in book 4. I'm assuming the underlying storyline (who was the one paying for the hits) will continue on the next book.

Release Day Review: Keep Me Close (Lazarus Rising # 2) by Cynthia Eden
Keep Me Close (Lazarus Rising Book 2) - Cynthia Eden

 

 

Flynn Haddox is a dead man. Literally. 

As a highly trained Navy SEAL, Flynn once worked covert missions for the U.S. government, but then his life was stolen away. Killed and placed in the secretive “Lazarus” program, Flynn was brought back from the dead and turned into a super-soldier. Now he has increased strength, enhanced senses, and a few psychic bonuses that he fights hard to keep hidden from the rest of the world. He also has no memory of his past…and a new, twisting darkness seems to be growing inside of Flynn. 

Cecelia Gregory escaped death once. Can she do it again? 

Dr. Cecelia Gregory was supposed to help the Lazarus test subjects. They didn’t have control of their emotions after the experiment, and her job as a psychiatrist was to break through the walls that the men had created. Too late, Cecelia realized that the Lazarus subjects were far more dangerous than she could ever imagine. The men came back from the dead, but some of them came back…wrong. Now one of the subjects has a dark obsession with Cecelia. The man known as Subject Five is hunting her. And he wants her dead. 

One man wants to kill her, but another just…wants her. 

Flynn feels a connection to Cecelia that he can’t deny. Not some sweet, innocent attraction—a consuming lust that makes him crave her all the time. Flynn knows that his feelings aren’t normal, but protecting her is his mission now. The man hunting Cecelia is just like Flynn—all the same enhancements, all the same strengths. And no weaknesses. One big difference, though—Flynn doesn’t plan to lose Cecelia. And he’ll fight his own darkness to prove his worth to her. 

 

 

 

 

The second book in the Lazarus Rising series just may have surpassed the first!

 

Flynn and Cecilia’s romance was touched on in Never Let Go as they were the main secondary characters but let me tell you that it in no way prepared me for just how turbulent and emotional their road to happiness would be. Of course, the sizzling attraction that flared every time they were in each other’s company proved to be undeniable as this couple grabs reader’s hearts and have them holding their breath. Cecilia’s past tugs at emotions while providing ammunition for the bad guys in some disturbing turns and Flynn may be a bit rough around the edges but that didn’t stop me from developing a major crush on this tormented soldier.

 

Keep Me Close drives readers to the edge with thrills and surprising twists in a plot that plot that is a perverse maze of obstacles and betrayals. The story retains its page turning status as new characters are introduced previous characters reappear including one of the bad guys who delights in the torment of Cecilia. The story draws a range of emotions from readers including curiosity, wrath directed at the enemies and empathy toward characters as they deal with all of those obstacles that are thrown in their paths to happiness.

 

I was so looking forward to reading Keep Me Close as I just read Never Let Go, so as soon as I got this one, I started reading and was delighted when I couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word. Once again, Cynthia Eden has created a world full of thrilling suspense, dynamic characters, and an original plot that guarantees that readers want more, which means I am waiting impatiently for the number three, which thankfully is due to be released in December.

 

 

 

Keep Me Close is the 2nd book in the Lazarus Rising series!

 

Stay With Me (Lazarus Rising #3) will be released on December 12, 2017.

New Release Review: Never Let Go (Lazarus Rising #1) by Cynthia Eden

 

 

He was more than just a man...

Dr. Elizabeth Parker didn't like wild, dangerous men...yet she still found herself falling for sexy Navy SEAL Sawyer Cage. He was her exact opposite--a man she should definitely stay away from, a man who lived for the thrill of danger...but he was also the man she found herself wanting more than any other.

But their secret relationship ended in heartbreak when Sawyer was killed on a mission. Grieving for him, the last thing Elizabeth ever expected was to find Sawyer listed as a test subject for the top secret government project she was heading--a project called Lazarus.

For years, Elizabeth had worked feverishly to unlock the secrets of life and death, and with her Lazarus formula, she finally thought she'd made a breakthrough. Only she never expected to use Lazarus on her lover.

But the choice is taken out of Elizabeth's hands...

Sawyer is given the Lazarus formula, and he's transported to a remote government facility. At that facility, Sawyer wakes once more, only he's not the same man. He's stronger, he's faster, his reflexes and his senses are ten times better than an average man's. The government calls Sawyer a super soldier... Elizabeth still calls him...hers.

Unfortunately, Sawyer has no memory of his life before Lazarus. All he knows is that something about the sexy doctor awakes a primal response in him. He wants her, and he'll do anything to possess her. Soul-deep, he feels that she was meant to be his.

Death waits in the darkness.

But something is wrong inside the Lazarus facility. The test subjects are holding back secrets, and danger seems to lurk in the air. The Lazarus subjects are super-human now, and some of those subjects have a very, very dark side. Twisted cravings drive them to the very edge of sanity. Can Sawyer keep Elizabeth safe from the madness around them...or will the growing darkness consume them both?

NEVER LET GO...a gripping new romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden.

 

 

Cynthia Eden’s newest series Lazarus Rising is off to a great start with Never Let Go!

 

It brings us into a military world full of action, drama, intrigue and romance with a touch of paranormal and as always with Cynthia Eden’s books a thrilling plot that just doesn’t let the readers go. It was medium to fast paced as the situations called for and full of thrills and the uncertainty of not knowing what would happen next which of course meant that I had to keep reading. The surprising twists happened throughout the book but none more surprising than the ones toward the end of the book which kind put a whole new perspective on the story and introduces readers to a character whose cagey, intriguing and leads us to believe that he just may have a few surprises of his own for us readers to uncover in future books.

 

All the characters were dynamic and attention grabbing with Elizabeth and Sawyer’s chemistry exploding from each and every page. Their romance was hot and steamy with some major emotional and turbulent times keeping the reader on pins and needles throughout. The secondary characters also added drama and chemistry to the book and ensured that readers will want to come back for more.

 

It is always a pleasure to read a book by Cynthia Eden and this is certainly no exception with its volatile topic that captures every readers attention as well as their imagination, I mean who isn’t captivated by the thought of bring the dead back to life, right?  Anyway, I am very excited that the next book, Keep Me Close is due to be released in just a few days because this is one series that I can’t wait to find out what happens next in.

Undead Or Alive - Cynthia Eden

This installment was short and moved quickly. I finished it in one sitting. I liked Amber and Cas, and their plot line was enjoyable and entertaining. The conflict and villain were good and there was even a nice twist I didn't see coming. I almost wanted more from their story though I finished not being disappointed. Cynthia Eden told a strong story, though short, and it had everything I like in a romance. Passion, excitement, strong characters, and a good plot and conflict. I enjoyed it and I continue to enjoy the Bad Things series.

Alpha One
Alpha One - Cynthia Eden
Juliana is a senator's daughter. Her dear old dad isn't a good person and has done things. Things of a criminal nature. Logan went into the military. His dad was a drunk driver who killed someone (and himself).
This had good suspense, with some TSTL moments, but nothing bad. I liked finding out what Julie and Logan's history was. Logan does get overbearing at times, but Julie holds her own.
