Moving Target by Lynette Eason

Moving Target by Lynette Eason

When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don't show up for Quinn's surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they did not leave of their own accord.

Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea where she is. But it's not long before she realizes she's in the clutches of a madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next game begins. Because if they don't win this game, they die.

My Thoughts: 
In book #3 of the Elite Guardians Series we meet Maddie McKay and Quinn Holcombe living their normal lives when in the quickest turn of events I've ever read their lives are thrust into darkness, danger, and a twisted game of death.

It was an interesting twist to see such a dramatic event take place so early in the story but it worked and kept me thumbing through pages quicker than I imagined. One of the things I didn't like in book #2 of the series (Without Warning review here) was the lack of protective behavior displayed by the hero but there was no shortage in this one and I appreciate that. Lynette Eason developed Quinn into the kind of hunky hero any girl would want by her side ... if only he'd get past his personal issues. No spoilers here but it was nice to see a hero come full circle and that bodes well for Ms. Eason's character development.

The plot was full of twists and turns and definitely had me guessing to the very end but I believe a part of that was just out of sheer confusion over the number of characters listed as potential suspects-especially when half the characters changed their names to hide their past. Definitely confusing. As much as I enjoyed the thrilling suspense early on in the story I have to say that it left me slightly disappointed with the climatic end-which wasn't nearly as climatic as the beginning-and a little unsatisfied with the level of motivation driving the killer.

Of the Elite Guardian Series, this was by far my favorite, though I'm actually really looking forward to book #4 which, Ms. Eason gives a sample chapter of at the end. This story, though part of a series, can easily be picked up as a stand alone but reading the series from the beginning is helpful to understand the characters past with each other. Moving Target will thrill Lynette Eason fans and satisfy readers who love a true romantic suspense story.
