Quick and easy contemporary romance taking place on a Reality style TV Dance show. Meagan is the producer and Sam is head of security. They've both suffered career-ending injuries - his as a Special Forces soldier and hers as a dancer. This brings them together as they both attempt to forge new lives and new careers.

The romance simmers gently between them with Meagan in constant denial about her feelings but Sam isn't about to let her shut down and refuse him and they have some fairly hot scenes

Stepping Up Series

Meagan Tippan is more than just the producer of a reality dance show, America’s Stepping Up. It’s her baby and the last chance to prove to everyone, including herself, that she has what it takes and is worth the risk. One that proved even riskier since the series of mishaps began on set causing rumors to swell and consume the entire cast and crew as well as the media who had glammed on to the news.

Samuel Kellar, head of security, knew Meagan was the

Watch Me is the typical Blaze book – hot, fun, sexy…and predictable. But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying it! I love all things Blaze.

I usually buy all my Blaze, but while browsing Net Galley I saw a new one from Ms. Jones and had to have it, like, now. I loved her book If I Were You and cannot wait until the squeal.

I’m a sucker for reality TV as well, and although I never got into Dancing with the Stars or You Think You Can Dance, one of my

This was a quick and fun read with a bit of steam in it. I don't usually read Harlequin, and when/if I do I'm a bit picky on what I do read. This was one I could not pass on.

Lisa Renee Jones has quickly become one of my go to authors and so I knew I was in for a good read, and she did not dissapoint.

Reading this book was as if I was watching one of the one too many reality shows currently out there. Except Watch Me is focused on dancing for a dream. There was a bit of intrigue, steam, a hot her

Watch Me has a lot love scenes. I skimmed over them. I really like the plot of the story and the characters.
The main plot is the making a reality show of dancers and after the dancers are down to certain amount all live together and live dancing competion with someone being voted off the show. But the show is cursed or is it.
Meagan Tippan had dreamed up the show but things keep going wrong. Broken pipes,fire,tornado,fights and back stabbing.

This was such a read. In romance and television there are nasty people and then there are total bitches. Kiki was Megan's thorn. What an evil girl! Megan started out at Julliard with a promise and then she got injured. Next phase starts with her major shifting to television and a dream for a dance show where contestants live together. Viola there is the plot, drama and bitchiness. When the head of security as former war hero Sam gets under Megan's skin the sparks fly.

Lee's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

The concept behind Watch Me was something that I really enjoyed considering I am a reality television fan.

Meagan Tippan is a TV producer with a new reality dance show she is trying to launch. So far everything has gone wrong and the cast and crew of the show are convinced there is a curse.

Meagan doesn’t buy into the whole curse business but she will admit that her attraction the Sam, the head of studio security, is a problem she DOES NOT want to have.

1.7-2.2 Stars. Public Library 1/19/15. I've not read anything by this author but I liked the description. Unfortunately there is more bickering and sexual tension then dancing. I wasn't feeling the characters if we weren't being told about their sexual tension (instead of showed) we were being treated to Megan's whining. Megan's motto should be my way or the highway. I can understand wanting things to go your way but when you're being difficult to be contrary takes things a step too far. Sam our ...more

This book tell the story of Meagan and Sam who is working together in a reality show; Meagan as the producer and Sam. the Head of Security. Accidents seems to be happening rampantly in the reality show and Sam is being roped in to do the damage control to save the show. Both of them seems to hit it off instantly and between the two of them, Meagan seems to be trying hard to resist the fireworks between them.

I like the fact that although this book focus mainly on the relationship between Meagan

In a sea of re-used and overused romance novel themes, it was so refreshing to read a novel that is as current as it gets. Reality TV, especially a dance show - and then throw in the possibility of a curse? Perfect set up for a romance novel in these times. I could do without backstabbing and vindictive people, but I get that it adds to the drama that is reality TV, and subsequently this book as well. I loved the matching damaged set of Meagan and Sam, and how their pasts and current situation b

Great book about dreams and drive staged where of all places a reality TV. Great story I loved Sam and Meg and the whole cast. Can't wait for the next book. I mean I was in love from page one there is a small side character named Ginger. Keep them comin
It was ok. Some problems here and there, not much character development and a very simple (and weak) plot. But at least is readable.

I liked the hero and heroine, but I really didn't like the setting/background. All of the dance competition/employee drama became annoying very quickly.
