{About the Book}
The guardians, the shadowy heroes of the top-secret program designed to protect members of the most elite government organizations, are being hunted down one by one. There is a single explanation: a traitor must be embedded somewhere in their midst. But if they themselves are the target, who will protect them?

CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she’s never really believed in their existence until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade, one of the last guardians standing, is unimpressed with Renee’s qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more, but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.

{My Review}
Safe House is still another fabulous book by author Traci Hunter Abramson. I was excited to read another book that includes the Saint Squad of Navy Seals. If you haven't read the other books in that series you've been missing out.

This book, Safe House, is about the Guardians, a secret group of agents that protect the most elite in the USA Government. Members of the Guardians are being killed off and it's up to the Kade, A Guardian, CIA operative Renee, and members of the Saint Squad to find out who is behind the murders. This book is such a sweet mixture of mystery, action, and romance. Traci knows how to do this so well in all of her books. 

One thing I noticed in this book is that the suspense factor is high as the characters are waiting for things to happen as they are figuring out who is behind all of the mayhem. Also, this novel focuses highly on the emotional growth of both Kade and Renee as they both finally learn how to open up, let go and allow themselves to fall in love. I truly enjoyed this aspect of Safe House. The romance was a key factor of enjoyment for me while I read this book.

Safe House turned out to be a fast read for me, lacking a little on action but huge on character growth as two lonely, vulnerable people work together, risking their own lives to finally reach out and grab a slice of happiness for themselves. I hope there is more to come in this series.
