First grade teacher and single mother Alexa Harris is no stranger to struggle, but for once, things are looking up. The school year is over and the lazy days of summer are here. Mini-vacations and relaxing twilight barbeques are on the horizon until Alexa's free-spirited younger sister vanishes.
Ransom calls and death threats force Alexa and her young daughter to flee their quiet home in Maryland. With nowhere else to turn, Alexa seeks the help of Jackson Matthews, Ethan Cooke Security's Risk Assessment Specialist and the man who broke her heart.
With few leads to follow and Abby's case going cold, Alexa must confess a shocking secret if she and Jackson have any hope of saving her sister from a hell neither could have imagined.

Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite Abby and Alexa had a rough childhood but they managed to survive it and learn to rely on each other, with Alexa the level-headed one and Abby the free spirit. But years later, single mom Alexa is preparing to enjoy an uneventful summer break when her sister is literally taken from her by masked men requesting more money than she can ever hope to have. There is one person who is more than qualified to help Alexa get her sister back, but he also happens to be her one true love and the father of her daughter Olivia. With no other choice, Alexa heads to Los Angeles with her daughter in tow to see if Jackson Matthews can, and will, offer his expertise. Alexa and Jack reunite and that is when the sparks fly and the action really begins in Cate Beauman’s Forever Alexa. Forever Alexa is a complex tale of long lost love, intrigue, and the secrets we keep. As Jackson and Alexa try to ignore the spark of attraction that has never faded, they must also navigate through a seedy underworld to find Abby before it is too late. Cate Beauman does a great job of building up suspense and showing us the tension between the main characters and breaking it up with the almost too adorable Olivia. The one problem I have is that Alexa is difficult to like. She attempts to insert herself into the investigation, at her and her daughter’s peril, when she has highly trained professionals on the job. At times I just wanted to shake some sense into her, but to Beauman’s credit it added a heightened sense of mystery and intrigue to the story. By the time you reach the end, a stiff drink will be needed to get your heart rate back to normal!
Cate Beauman has done it again with the fourth book in her Bodyguards of LA County series, FOREVER ALEXA. This is the story of Jackson Matthews and Alexa Harris, former college sweethearts who are brought together again by the kidnapping of her sister, Abby…..a kidnapping that brings a huge threat to Alexa’s daughter. With nowhere else to turn, Alexa reunites with Jackson, Ethan Cooke Security’s Risk Assessment Specialist. While he is surprised to see Alexa again after all this time, he is more surprised to see her daughter……Jackson’s mirror image. With the help of members of Ethan Cooke Security, Jackson and Alexa follow the clues that lead them to a seedy, dark world that Alexa and Abby never wanted to enter. Alexa will do whatever it takes to save her sister but will it cost her the family she’s always longed for and the one man she could never forget??? Cate Beauman is a master storyteller who brings her characters to life in the pages of her books. FOREVER ALEXA made me laugh out loud, groan in frustration and cry in despair as Jack and Alex worked both together and against each other to find Abby. Through her words I really felt the range of emotions Alex travelled during her lifetime…the joys and the sorrows. I felt Jack’s frustration and heartache as he fought to find Abby and hold onto his family. FOREVER ALEXA is a book that is impossible to put down. I loved the first three books in this series, Morgan’s Hunter, Falling for Sarah and Hailey’s Truth, but FOREVER ALEXA is far and above my favorite in the series. That being said, I not only recommend but encourage readers of romantic suspense to give Ms. Beauman’s books a try…..you will not be disappointed!!!
