Review & Bookstagram Giveaway: Impending Strike by Sami A. Abrams Presented by Lynette Eason

Impending Strike is an exciting addition to the Elite Guardians Collection series, which is also a continuation of the Elite Guardians series. I am enjoying the chance for side characters from the original series to have their stories told.

One of the things I really liked about this story was the way Charlie’s true personality came out when he ended up with temporary amnesia after being attacked. He was still the same man, yet Lizzie was finally able to see the serious side of Charlie, the side that wasn’t covering up his pain with jokes and deflection. And he was able to recognize his true feelings for Lizzie when he didn’t have a lot of other history floating around inside him, prompting him to keep Lizzie at a distance.

Charlie and Lizzie had some big troubles and concerns that weighed them down in life and made both of them hesitant to love anyone again. Lizzie especially needed to learn to trust in God and recognize that her decisions in life were not the catalyst for various tragedies that she endured.

I really liked these two together. They had a great connection as friends and romantic chemistry that finally had the chance to break through in this novel.

Protecting him just might cost her everything…

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?

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