Review for Watching Over Her by Terry Towers - 3 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
When Major VanBuren approached me with a very special and highly classified assignment, I felt honored. I’d been waiting for a chance at a covert mission. Imagine my surprise when he hit me with the details – he wanted me to befriend his eighteen-year-old daughter, newly arrived in town and harboring a broken heart. My new ‘assignment’ entailed becoming a glorified babysitter and her new BFF; I thought it was as honorable as being in charge of the cafeteria – complete bullsh*t if you ask me.
And then I met her...
Olivia is all legs, golden hair, and she has the most captivating blue eyes I’ve ever seen.
While my mind tells me to keep things on the up-and-up, my d*ck has other plans. What was supposed to be an easy bullsh*t mission is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous things I’ve ever been tasked to do.
MY REVIEW -
This is a cute story with some kink, and I enjoyed it! I liked that the characters relationship started as a friendship, and progressed into more. I enjoyed the forbidden element of romancing the boss' daughter, and also that Evan was asked by Olivia's father to befriend her; I wanted to see how that would play out, and I enjoyed the military aspect. Olivia's heart has been broken a couple times, so she has trust issues. Olivia is 18, so she a bit naïve, and Evan is around 24, so I was having a bit of hard time feeling the connection between the two, but I stilled liked their relationship, and I liked that they have similar interests that brought them closer. They also have some hot times! I found this story entertaining, and I enjoyed the angst between the characters at times. I wish there were more of an epilogue, and I wish the time jumps were a bit shorter. I listened to the audiobook version of this story, and I don't feel the narrators were the right choice for this book, and I felt the quality of audio was great, but as the book went on, I grew used to it, but I still feel like the audio didn't really add to my enjoyment of the book. All in all, I liked this, and I'll continue to check out books by Terry Towers.
