Title: Watch Over
Series: The DeLucas Family #1
Author: Amy Reece
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
Melanie Blythe has a house, a career, and a cat. She doesn’t need a man. But she isn’t the only one who’s noticed the gorgeous cop down the street. When her faithless cat prances home from the cop’s house with a note tucked in his collar, it might be the beginning of something beautiful…or it might be Melanie’s death warrant.
Detective Finn DeLuca is stuck at home recovering from a hit-and-run accident, and has plenty of time to wonder about the woman two doors down. There’s something mysterious about the beautiful brunette, and he’s determined to get to know her.
But someone else has other plans.
As the two grow closer, someone is watching—and waiting. Sooner or later, their chance will come.
And the two lovebirds will never see it coming.
Watch Over is a sweet romance with a bit of suspense thrown in for good measure. I really liked the male lead, Finn, and I really loved his family and look forward to reading more books about his brothers. Melanie was ok - she was a little to clueless at times and it made it a bit difficult to relate to her. I did that the air that the threat against the couple brought to the book, but it was fairly easy to figure out who the culprit was. I still enjoyed reading how it all played out. The cat's role in developing a relationship between the two main characters was also really cute. The slight drawback for me was how sort of mild the book was - but that's just because my taste prefers a bit more oomph in my plot and sex scenes. I give Watch Over 3 out of 5 stars.
