    Guardians picks up exactly where Hunted left off. The bodies are beginning to pile up and it's getting closer and closer to Vee. Now it's personal and her human side is not coping well. She's shocked and shutting down. She's also feeling guilty that she's letting her Horsemen down by not being strong enough. Plus, there's this voice inside her, a Vee that may be dangerous. In her desperation, she asks Joss to strip her of her human emotions feeling that it will make her stronger. However, if he

    Guardians picks up exactly where Hunted left off. The bodies are beginning to pile up and it's getting closer and closer to Vee. Now it's personal and her human side is not coping well. She's shocked and shutting down. She's also feeling guilty that she's letting her Horsemen down by not being strong enough. Plus, there's this voice inside her, a Vee that may be dangerous. In her desperation, she asks Joss to strip her of her human emotions feeling that it will make her stronger. However, if he does as she requests, will it take away her ability to connect with the guys? Will it take away the part of her that the guys love? The story is getting more complicated, darker. The Horsemen are following leads from Seth, Vee's on-line co-conspirator. Leads that have them dealing with beings they would rather avoid, Hunters, Demons, the ancient Collector. There are no answers, only more mysteries.

    Vee is getting closer to the Horsemen, but at the same time trust is disappearing and fear of her impact on the group is returning. Once again we are left to wonder who is Vee? Why a fifth now? Is she making them stronger or tearing them apart? There is confusion, fear, pain, hurt, suspicion, and anger among the group, not to mention the lust that always lingers between the guys and Vee. There's also a danger that can't be seen. A dark coldness with the power to destroy.

    This series just keeps getting better. Each book is entertaining, but this book took the series to a new level. The tension was there from page one and only increased with each page. The darkness is growing and the Horsemen seem at a loss. Several times one or more of them was seriously shaken by information coming to light. For the first time, they don't seem invincible. For the first time, Vee's presence seems as if it could cause them weakness, not strength. Vee is at a crossroads, who is she and whom does she want to be? There are no answers only paths to follow. Warning: The book ends with a cliffhanger that will gut you. Chaos can not arrive soon enough!

    Absolutely astounding. The plot is really thickening in this one, and I love how complex and intriguing the story is becoming. There are potential threats, and numerous enemies, around every corner, and even among themselves there is trust issues, seeping tension, and secrets being kept. I don't trust Seth as far as I'd throw him, and what darkness is inside all of them, especially Vee? I loved how the relationships developed in this one, even with the flaws and potential rifts between some of t

I don't trust Seth as far as I'd throw him, and what darkness is inside all of them, especially Vee? I loved how the relationships developed in this one, even with the flaws and potential rifts between some of the pairings. And that ending is killer (in a good way) and while I had suspected as much, it doesn't take away from the impact. I'm already chomping at the bit for the next installment. Fantastic job, Lisa. This series is one of my fave RH series right now. Up there with Curse of the Gods by JJ in my opinion. Can't wait for Chaos!

    Ahhh!!! Each book is better and better! Totally loved this book!!! The Vee and Joss scene was so hot and perfect and so glad that they finally got together in that way!! Another steamy Xander and Vee scene for the win. I’m worried for Vee and her wanting to lose her sense of humanity. I’m worried that Ewan won’t let go and help Vee be who she is. But I’m super worried for Joss and whatever demon thing possessed him and stole his life!!!!! And I need to know what Vee will do to help Joss come bac

But I’m super worried for Joss and whatever demon thing possessed him and stole his life!!!!! And I need to know what Vee will do to help Joss come back to life and get rid of that scary demon thing!!! And I also have a very bad feeling about Seth and the chaos that surrounds him! I have a feeling he is causing it. But I love this series!! Very anxiously awaiting the next book: Chaos!!!!

    Pretty much picking up where Hunted left off Vee is left dazed. She is having issues with loosing her human side. In order to become what she needs to be, she has to loose her humanity. But can she? Does she really want to? And if she does, would the guys feel for her differently. I feel like each installment the intensity of the flow gets kicked up a notch. The guys are frustrated with their investigation, and with their relationship with Vee. She is supposed to be the link, but is all she is d

But can she? Does she really want to? And if she does, would the guys feel for her differently. I feel like each installment the intensity of the flow gets kicked up a notch. The guys are frustrated with their investigation, and with their relationship with Vee. She is supposed to be the link, but is all she is doing breaking them apart? She has them going all over the place with their emotions. And Xander, I go back and forth from loving him to wanting to just slap him upside the head. All of the guys though are a perfect fit for Vee. And yes there is a cliffhanger for the ending, that will leave you going WTH you cant end it like this! But it sets up Chaos perfectly I believe.

    Guardians picks up EXACTLY where Hunted finished, and this time, the dead bodies are becoming personal to Vee, meaning that her human side is finding it hard to cope. If she shuts down, they’re all left vulnerable to those who are after them.

    The plot in Guardians makes a huge leap forward, and exposes a new theory as to what magic the perpetrators seem to be using. They need the help of an age old character whose name is no longer releva

    Guardians picks up EXACTLY where Hunted finished, and this time, the dead bodies are becoming personal to Vee, meaning that her human side is finding it hard to cope. If she shuts down, they’re all left vulnerable to those who are after them.

    The plot in Guardians makes a huge leap forward, and exposes a new theory as to what magic the perpetrators seem to be using. They need the help of an age old character whose name is no longer relevant in the world he has long inhabited - he’s just called The Collector. And, what he reveals about their history, rips the rug out from under The Horsemen, along with everything they thought they knew about themselves.

    Vee gets closer to each of the guys, and as individual as each Horseman is, so too is her connection with them. One is resisting though, because as her relationship with them strengthens, so too does her power, and he’s worried about the end result. Is this Horseman protecting them through his tendency to overthink the relationship, or, is he actually depriving them all of the necessary links to their combined powers required to fight the evil that is old beyond ages.

    I have to admit, I’m finally using the hell out of the note feature of the Amazon E-Books App, and I’m leaving my own theories all over the place. I want to see if I’m on the right track. LJ Swallow is a mistress of words, and I’m completely bound to follow where ever her story leads. 4.5 stars for this Reverse Harem genre that is completely new to me.

    OMG How is it possible that these stories get even more intense and gripping each time? We're on the 4th novella, I should be bored by now, but no! I need more NOW!

    Guardians is continuing on literally from where Hunted left off dramatically, and it's almost like each part has jumped up a notch in just how intense it can be. More drama, more supernatural people, more sex, more twists and turns, and more mouth dropping shockers. It's just 100% more!

    If you haven't already started this novella series, you seriously need to. There is no point reading a book 4 review, get to my book 1 review and then start reading. Vee and the Four Horsemen will totally blow you away. And there is not long to go until Chaos!

    5 Massive stars.

    This time around things are heating up...

    And not just in the bedroom, Our Boys and Vee are on the hunt for Caseys killer or killers. Seth resurfaces and an old magic comes to light.

    Lisa has upped the ante in Guardians, and I loved every minute of it.

    We get to see some of the hidden insecurities of our seemingly bullet proof boys, Joss shows us the heat he was lacking in previous instalments and boy was it worth the wait.

    Ewan is now the present I want to unwrap..he is far more complex than earlie

    Ewan is now the present I want to unwrap..he is far more complex than earlier books had him appear to be.

    We get to meet an exciting new character "The Collector" so called for his love of well collecting things. I can't wait to learn more about him as it appears he is one of the original fae travellers to the earth realm.

    Lisa has expanded on her already well thought out and written world and the layers of the story reflect that. I feel like we are heading towards an epic crescendo of good versus evil, and the players are finally going to start revealing themselves and their motives.

    CAN NOT WAIT for Chaos book 5.

    Wow, this installment of the Four Horsemen series heats up, giving us some of the steamy moments that we have been begging for, but there is also a lot of drama and mystery to go along with it! I hope the next book has some answers to all these questions because this one is kinda killing me, especially the cliffhanger. Thank goodness the next book isn't too far off :)

    In this book, we get to learn more about what is going on in the darkness/what is going on behind the scenes, get to meet more interesting characters, and see Vee and her guys grow and sometimes take 2 steps back. Vee is doubting her human self and tries to figure out where to go from here, while her guys can't help but try and get closer to her. One of my favorites is targeted but hopefully will make it back/get some resolution soon. I am very cautious with Seth, not gonna lie. I think there is something going on the Horsemen won't see coming but we all will soon find out in 2018. I love seeing the softer side of Xander and the darker side of the others, good mix-up from the previous books. Another great book in the Four Horsemen Series!

    Another great book in this series which at first I was a little hesitant about bit am enjoying more and more as the series goes on.

    This book picks up straight where the last one, Hunted, finishes and we're straight back into the action. I liked that there was more charavter and relationship development in this book, however we still have a lot more questions to be answered. The end of this book did leave me hanging off the edge of that cliff, however hopefully it won't be too long till the next

I'm just sad it will be the end of the series.

    Five stars for this book from me, really enjoyed it and how everything is progressing along.
