Watch Me by Cynthia Eden {ARC Review}

Watch Me (Dark Obsession #1)
by Cynthia Eden

Coming December 9th, 2014

He was hired to protect her.

Watching gorgeous Gwen Hawthorne wasn’t a hard job—but it certainly was tempting. Chance Valentine had tried to keep his distance from the sexy socialite for years, but when her father hired him to keep watch on her—as a twenty-four, seven bodyguard—Chance knew his control was about to be pushed to the limit.

He’d never wanted another woman the way he desired her. Hot. Intense. Consuming. Being so close to Gwen, Chance knew that he wouldn’t be able to resist her. So he gave into his need, her need, and he took them both to the edge of a dark and consuming desire.

But Chance soon realizes that he isn’t the only one watching Gwen. Someone else is out there, a stalker who won’t rest until Gwen is destroyed. Every day, every moment…Gwen is in danger. And Chance knows that if he can’t unmask the stalker, then he may just lose the only woman he has ever loved.

I'm a HUGE Cynthia Eden fan so I was super excited when I saw that she was coming out with a new romantic suspense series. I really enjoy reading stalker/serial killer stories and Cynthia Eden can write a stalker like no one else. Unlike most authors, she lets us get into the head of the stalker and I have to admit that's one of my favorite parts.

Chance and Gwen have wanted each other since the first time they met but since Chance worked for her dad, he wouldn't cross that line. After some humiliation and embarrassment on Gwens part, they don't see each other for months until Gwen's dad, Will, hires Chance to keep a 24/7 watch on Gwen because he fears she's in danger.

Of course Gwen questions Chance's reappearance in her life, but she's so happy when he saves her yet again that she let's it go. Poor Chance... He wanted to be with Gwen and protect her but he knew when he admitted that her father did indeed call him and ask him to watch over her that she'd probably never want to see him again. I guess in a way I see where he's coming from but he had so many opportunities to tell her the truth that he should have just been upfront with her.

Luckily, Chance is pretty good at groveling and Gwen forgives him without putting up too much of a fight. I really love the dynamic between these two. Their attraction for each other was apparent, but you could tell it was so much more than that. And when they did finally have sex? It was explosive just like they knew it would be.

As for the stalker... I had a feeling that I knew who it was as soon as we were introduced to them. But in true Cynthia Eden style, she had me second guessing myself a time or two. I won't say whether I was right or not but I will say this... I sure enjoyed the roller coaster Ms. Eden took me on!

If you enjoy reading a good romantic suspense, and even if you've never read a Cynthia Eden book before, you should definitely read Watch Me!
