Big change between the first book and this one. Very glad I decided to continue the series. The tech was toned down a bit, and the emotion was definitely there. I loved how the relationship between Kyle and Izzy unfolded. Looking forward to the next book.

I liked the role reversal on this one--heroine is the protection, hero is witness being protected--but the heroine still has a thing for pretty shoes, a win-win! :) Although it took a while to really get "into" the story--Lizzy's a bit standoffish, partly because of the pressures of being a woman in a man-dominated field who constantly has to prove herself and Kyle comes off as somewhat stiffly formal, due in part to cultural differences--once the story got rolling I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the constant costume changes while they were incognito out and about on the streets, though I'm still having a hard time picturing Kyle in a red wig ;) It did seem like a few things were glossed over/left hanging toward the end--the involvement of Safeguard's counterpart on the opposite side, for example, and their sniper Jewel, who apparently has a past with Safeguard--though perhaps as the series continues that will come up again and be resolved later. This was my second book by Ms. Drake, but the first in this series--it worked just fine as a standalone, though seeing Lizzie's boss Gabe in action and hearing about Mayin's cooking had me adding book one ( Hidden Impact ) to my TBR before I'd even finished this one. Rating: 4 stars / B+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Oh what a good read! Female bodyguard and hot Asian male protectee. Lots of action and adventure. Kyle and Lizzy were made for each other! I love how they bring out the best in each other. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat and up past your bedtime.

Kyle Yeun isn't a bad guy but he got caught up in the nefarious practices of his company. But when he reaches his breaking point he reaches out to the Feds and agrees to testify them. When he wanders off from his protection and is attacked, he is saved by an off duty Safeguard Agent. She quickly snuffs out the threat and returns him to his protection detail. But when his safety is compromised he knows he needs outside help. He brings in Safeguard to protect him. And he wants Lizzy to protect him!! Lizzy Scott is working with Safeguard whilst she ponders her future. She's not a real team player, blame her sniper skills on that, but if she wants to advance she's going to need a partner or a team. When she is given babysitting duty of Kyle she is not exactly happy. He is a distraction of the sexiest kind and there is no place for romance when you are guarding someone's life. Kyle is not the easiest guy to protect, he can be arrogant, condescending and difficult. But he's sick of being left in the dark and wants to know what's happening and be involved in the decisions surrounding his safety, not dictated to and ignored. But as business and personal lines blue and they give in to the lust they feel, Lizzy just hopes that they can get out of this alive. What follows is a fabulously descriptive trek through Seattle as they attempt to outwit the bad guys and try to investigate a possible mole in the law enforcement agencies so far employed to protect Kyle. I loved all of Kyle's flaws. Whilst a perfect Alpha hero, his jagged edges and arrogance make you work to like him. Lizzy is kick%^& and so unflappable. She doesn't use her femininity to get out of situations and is a wonderfully professional under fire. They both feel the attraction but understand that the timing is less than perfect. I'm loving this series and can't wait for more!

I loved this book! It has very fast paced action as Lizzy, a Safeguard asset, is called into service to protect Kyle, a government witness. The threats against Kyle are very real and force Lizzy to take unconventional steps to keep him safe. As they try to keep ahead of the threats, they discover their attraction to each other. The result is romantic suspense at its best. This is a wonderful series that fans of the genre will love. While part of a series, Deadly Testimony is a stand alone novel.
