Guardian Trilogy



Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars
By Liz Schulte
Book 1: Secrets ~ Book 2: Choices ~ Book 3: Consequences

Olivia is a successful photographer with the closest best friend anyone could ask for. She stopped dating after a horrible break up over a year ago, and hasn't met a man that has interested her since. Until a random night at the bar when she runs into Holden, a gorgeous man that exudes sexuality and danger. Yes, this is the typical introvert girl meets bad boy novel- with a bit of a twist. She begins casually running into Holden in places she knows he wouldn't be- is he stalking her or is this fate intervening into her boring sex life? Olivia begins having lucid dreams where he shows up, and they feel so real. Could he be sharing her dreams with her as well? Stalker guy, totally nonchalant girl. So Twilight at the beginning, I was worried- but it does get better. Holden turns out to be a jinni, an employee of demons and hell. He sold his soul at a young age, he is a cold blooded killer. But Olivia sees so much more to him than his evil side. When her best friend commits suicide and Olivia finds the body, Holden is the only person there for her. He takes care of her while she mourns the loss of her "sister", and her ever increasing feelings are getting in the way of hating him. There is someone else out there, far more powerful than Holden, that wants her soul. Can Olivia and Holden together figure out who it is before it's too late to stop it?

This series is actually quite well written, with the exception of punctuation and spelling errors that irritate the hell out of me. It follows the typical lines of a paranormal romance, but there are a few crazy plot twists. Keep reading for spoilers...


There will also be a whole other trilogy in this series, called The Jinn Trilogy. I haven't read it yet, but it's definitely on my to be read list.
