The Watcher is a sexy, pulse-pounding romantic suspense from USA Today bestselling author Bella Jewel!
NOW YOU SEE HER...
Seven years ago, Marlie Jacobson was kidnapped by a serial killer--and lived to tell about it. But it was actually her mother who told the story, in a bestselling book that made Marlie famous. Today, she's known as the girl who slayed a killer. The one who got away. Now, there's just one thing Marlie wants to get away from: her past. But when her little sister disappears, her worst fears come rushing back--with a vengeance.
NOW SHE'S GONE.
Kenai Michelson is a world-renowned investigator. Dark, brooding, and dangerously good-looking, he's the kind of man Marlie would normally avoid at all costs. But Kenai is her only hope in finding her missing sister. Together, Kenai and Marlie follow a trail of clues that leads them towards the truth--and into each other's arms. As her trust in Kenai grows, so does their fierce connection. But will their desire turn deadly as they close in on a ruthless enemy who's watching their every move?
Another superb book by Bella Jewel!! This book was heart pounding, sexy, thrilling & suspenseful!!
I just loved Marlie's character. She was determined, tenacious, sweet & strong. She lived through hell and when he was freed, all she wanted was peace, but her mother (of all people), didn't give that to her. She was thrust into the spotlight whether she wanted to be or not and she felt the need to escape, so she did. I loved that Marlie didn't take handouts and she relied solely on herself; it spoke volumes about her character. I also loved how she never gave up on her sister. She would have walked through hell to get her sister and in a way she did.
Kenai is a broody @$$hole, but I loved him. He was pure alpha and he had no qualms about that. Once Marlie cracked through his walls, we got to see a softer side to Kenai. He was strong, sexy, smart, determined, protective and possessive (in a good way). He never let Marlie go into danger, he just felt the need to protect her and I loved that. Seriously, when he would go all alpha and protective on her, my heart fluttered. Kenai always supported Marlie and after learning the truth about everything, he never doubted her.
Together, Kenai & Marlie had a chemistry that was off the charts hot and their connection was instant, but they are both stubborn and fought their attraction at first. This book had me on the edge of my seat from the first page until the ending. This book also made me tear up and it had my heart pounding. I am so excited for the next book!!
