## Holy hotness. Simon is a dream. This book is STELLAR. I know I sound like a broken record, but man Ms.Eden can write the hell out of a romantic suspense. In the words of DJ Khaled: "Another one"! Simon and Gwen have fabulous chemistry. I love that Gwen didn't wait until the end of the story to confide in Simon. And I love that she wasn't shy about letting him know how much he hurt her. So many times that fact is glossed over in a second chance story. Not so here. And the hero Simon? Can you say humina, humina? So protective and possessive. Just the way I like a hero. The suspense and intrigue was once again first rate and kept me guessing throughout. I highly recommend this book along with "Protecting Piper". I can't wait to see what Ms.Eden does with Ben's story ( I myself have already pre-ordered it).

The intensity and strong emotions, danger and fear, the potent, deadly action, and the second chance with your one and only soul mate who slipped from your life years ago, the ardent love affair in the middle of the risk and peril... I have such a serious case of book hangover right now, I can't wait for the end of the month and the next installment in the series, Ben's story! After reading Eric and Piper's story, I knew Simon's book would be tense and fierce. But this tale exceeded my expectations with the action and suspense, with the powerful secrets, and vigorous investigation to the case of Gwen's stalker. And the passion between Gwen and Simon just fed the flames that the suspense started. To tell the truth and trust him with all her heart was the only option Gwen had when after all the years she was face to face with Simon again. The fact that they both still trust each other, have this raw honesty when it came to the other, and that they did not fight for more than a short moment to surrender for the fervent passion still flaming as a tangible force between them -- it was just beautiful. The connection was real, the feelings bubbling back to the surface were unavoidable, the chemistry was palpable and strong, Simon and Gwen were adorably amazing together, with the kind of energy that takes your breath away. I loved seeing the whole gang working together, getting to the bottom of the case. Seeing the connection Simon had with Ben and Eric, the brotherhood that excited without bloodlines told about the bond of a friendship they had formed. This book was tough to put down after I first started it, the tempo of the unraveling tale is fast and I wanted to hang on to each word that took me for the wild ride. A vastly entertaining tale with a fabulous cast and crew, highspeed action, explosive suspense, and a ravishing, mindblowing love story of tragic soul mates whose destiny once drew apart... Yep, pretty amazing tale, indeed! ~ Five Spoons

Passion. Tension. Crazy stalkers. Childhood sweethearts. A great plot and exciting conflict and a plot twist. Who really is the stalker and what is the real motive? Can they pretend the past didn’t happen and keep things professional?  Absolutely not. Second chances don’t come around that often and Simon walked away from the love of his life thinking he had nothing to offer her, but when she walks back into his life and is in danger, he won’t stop until she is safe and his once again. I loved it. It was fast paced, steamy, explosive and had great characters and a great development of the relationship between the two. I loved it. So good. Excited to see what else is in store for this series; books 1 and 2 ended up being majorly explosive and I hope book three with Ben turns out to be just as great.

This is the next installment of the Wilde Security series. And it is as heart wrenching and suspenseful as the first one. We met Simon in Protecting Piper as one of the bodyguards and it was great to get his story. His past is not something he wants to share but the one girl who is his past has suddenly become his present and more importantly, his future. But they have to find out who is trying to stop her and no one is going to hurt Gwen again. You don’t have to have read the earlier book but this looks to be an exciting and addicting series so I would encourage you to follow each story.

The spotlights are shining brightly on this thrilling second chance romance as Simon and Gwen struggle with their past while trying to unmask Gwen’s stalker. The hero and the heroine of this story are strong, vibrant and easily steal the show as readers become enthralled by their rocky relationship that burns hot enough to singe readers. Simon and Gwen have an undeniable chemistry but due to some past events this romance is in no way a sure thing which keeps emotions high throughout and readers experience the whole gauntlet from heated passion, to hurt filled rage to tentative hope and of course they also experience the terror of not knowing who to trust. This fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge with some hair raising suspense and adrenaline pumping action. The suspense builds throughout the story as the stalker grows more bold and unstable and surprising twists ensure that have no clue who the culprit is until the very end. The story is also packed full of entertaining events that stem from Gwen and Simon’s relationship and a couple of explosions, betrayals, secrets and revelations ramp up the excitement even more throughout this page turning romantic suspense.

GUARDING GWEN is the second instalment in Cynthia Eden’s contemporary, adult, erotic, romantic suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Wilde Securities. This is Wilde Securities Vice President and former Navy SEAL Simon Forrest, and Hollywood movie star Gwenevere ‘Gwen’ Solomon’s story line. GUARDING GWEN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Gwen and Simon) GUARDING GWEN is a second chance romance between Wilde Securities Vice President and former Navy SEAL Simon Forrest, and Hollywood movie star Gwenevere ‘Gwen’ Solomon. Years earlier, high school sweethearts Simon and Gwen planned for a future: Gwen was going to college, and Simon had enlisted into the Navy but Simon believed he had nothing to offer the woman he loved, so he walked away without looking back. Fast forward to present wherein Gwen Solomon, now an award winning Hollywood actress was in need of personal protection, and Simon Forrest was her only hope. What ensues is the rekindling romance and relationship between Simone and Gwen, and the potential fall-out as Gwen’s life continues to spiral out of control. Gwen Solomon has a stalker who knows her secrets. Very few people know what happened including the man she hasn’t stopped loving, a man whose need to protect Gwen supersedes all rational distance and time. Simon Forrest no longer works in the field but seeing the fear in the woman he loves, Simon becomes both personal protector and lover for our story line heroine. From threatening texts and phone calls, to car bombs and murder, Gwen Solomon’s life is no longer her own. The relationship between Gwen and Simon is a rekindling but acrimonious romance; a second chance for two people destroyed by one man’s self-doubt, and a whole whack of a lack of communication. Gwen struggles with issues of trust as Simon battles for her heart. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters include defense attorney Kendrick Shaw; Gwen’s PA Van, her agent Evie, stunt double Raven Charles, and fellow actor Austin Quest. We are reintroduced to Eric Wilde and Piper Lane (Protecting Piper #1), as well as Eric’s brother, divorce attorney Ben Wilde, security specialist Julia Slate, and Eric’s assistant Dennis. Ben’s story is next in Before Ben. GUARDING GWEN is a story of second chances, betrayal, jealousy and revenge. The premise is intriguing and engaging; the romance is hot and heavy; the characters are energetic and captivating. GUARDING GWEN is a passionate and suspense filled story.

Gwenevere Solomon is now a famous actress, but years ago she was in love with Simon before he left to join the military. Now she reaches out to him at Wilde Securities where is he is the Vice President. She has a stalker and believes that Simon may be the only person who can keep her safe. Simon Forrest is shocked to see Gwen after so many years...he has never forgotten her and vows to keep her safe. Gwen finally shares, with Simon, an event from her past that may have come back to haunt her. As the stalker ramps up the danger, Simon along with his team from Wilde Securities will investigate everyone associated with Gwen for that one clue that may lead them to the stalker. Ms. Eden’s writing is such that you can feel the intensity between Gwen and Simon as they confront their feelings for each other and try to stay alive. A thrilling suspense and action filled story that will keep you turning the pages until the exciting end. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review.
