I truly enjoyed "Watch Over Me", Lucy Monroe's latest book in her 'Goddard Project Agency' series about Alpha male former mercenary heroes and the women who semi-tame them. Monroe is one of those authors I count on to deliver a story I'll enjoy, without having to deal with 'too' much reality in the form of death and destruction. She also delivers the heat without fail!

Lana is a genius and a scientist. She's also a bit...well, let's just say there doesn't seem to be much of a filter between her b

Watch Over Me is an excellent installment into Lucy Monroe’s Mercenary/Goddard Project series. I found the last one lacking, but this one makes up for it. You can probably read this as a stand alone, even though previous characters are mentioned. There is enough detail given so that you don’t feel you are lacking any information.

Mykola is an INS agent turned security specialist (I know, just go with it), assigned to protect his sister Elle Grey, who we met in The Spy Who Wants Me. Elle is a secu
Excellent romantic suspense read. I've really enjoyed this series and another book [brother Roman Chernichenko:] yet to come!

As is usual with these books - action driven plot with great characters and lots of sexual tension. Some of the characters from previous books [both Goddard Project books and her Mercenary books:] have supporting roles or make appearances in this book. It's nice to see old friends!

The hero is a serious white knight - one who spent too much time undercover and having to do
It was a good story with a very science fiction twist that supported the plot.

I just wished that she had men
I have to say I enjoyed Watch Over Me a lot more.
Lana is a socially inept, not physically perfect scientist, her lack of social skills and the way she blurts out what she is thinking is often amusing and embarrassing for her. Mykola is a super secret Goddard Project's newest member, a true Alpha.
I really liked the characters. The story was a little too predictable. But overall I enjoyed this one.
I've read two or three Lucy Monroe books and enjoyed them, although I never thought she was a great writer. This book was a joke, however. It probably deserved only one star. The romance wasn't believable, and neither was the "suspense" plot. The characters were cardboard, the dialog cliched, and the "Hallmark card" moments a little nauseating. A tortured hero who takes one look at a geek scientist in a shapeless lab coat and falls instantly in lust..not to mention that he's a "professional" and ...more
Scientist heroine has hard time filtering her lusty thoughts about hero who's part of special security hired to protect her & her inventions from the hands of the wrong people.

Monroe's latest books have not been as good as her older ones. This one was tepid...the romance & the action-suspense. It just seemed like she prolonged what-could've-been a much shorter (like 100 pages less) book. It would've made the overall book more exciting. Some of the dialogue was superfluous & boring so

Sappy, Sexy, Predictable...perfect romance!

I've finally figured out why I keep reading this series. It's homey. Just not in the way I've been using the word.

One of the things I've enjoyed about series is finding out what happens to the characters as they go through life.

Throughout the Goddard Project series, while the writing itself is rather bland and predictable, most of the characters show up for various lengths of time so I catch up on what's "happenin' in the family" but what keeps drawing me back to GP is the relationships they ha
I wasn't sure about bringing Myk into a book since there wasn't too much mention of him in the other books, but boy am I glad that he was made a main character. Him and Lana were absolutely hilarious...mostly because of Lana. Her inability to filter and keep things in her head endeared Lana to me from the get-go. And Myk was usually so stoic, but around her he couldn't quite keep it a good way. Both of them came apart when they were together and they were all the better for it. gre ...more
I had the opportunity to read this book as a selected judge on the Readers' Crown Contest.
Very interesting read. A scientist's research has become the interest of a very dangerous group and Mykola, a former INS agent/spy/mercenary becomes involved in the case to protect the scientist. A romance explodes once Mykola meets Lana. VERY HOT.
This book looks like it's part of a series of novels.. I'll definitely be checking the rest of them out!

Though I've never read the rest of the series, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The ending (specifically the last chapter) seemed a trifle bit rushed to me, but that's really my only complaint.

The chemistry between the two main characters was scorching, and I really enjoyed the nerdy, socially awkward heroine :)

I plan on reading the rest of the series in the future.

I really enjoyed this one! The conflicts were outside, the angst level was low, the romance sweet, the sexy times ... sexy. *laugh* I might need to check out more of this series (which, I didn't realize it was a series when I found the book).
I am noticing with Lucy Monroe that her writing is very oddly timed. It is always instant attraction, together within a day of meeting, then a bunch of the suspense builds to a very anticlimactic ending, finally ending with an abrupt "I Love You" moment and THE END. It really takes away most of the believability of the story. That is my two cents anyway.

The female character was written so weakly in this book, I couldn't stand her! She's written as a genius scientist with zero social skills, yet she belly dances and tracks her assistant w GPS. And she survived a kidnapping and escape. But yet enter the love interest and she's all clingy "yes, dear" stupid!! Ugh!
Maybe the Goddard Project is improving as the series continues. I really the way thoughts leave Lana's mouth without a "filter" and that Myk is attracted to the egghead scientist.

I still don't love this series like I do the mercenary trilogy...
Very good book. I liked the characters Myk and Lana. I was glad to see a continuation of the Goddard Project books.
This series is a guilty pleasure, and this particular installment in the series was my favorite thus far.
A decent read. Sexy hero, geeky heroine, believable dangerous plot… a bit superficial, though.
So far I'm really enjoying this book. Very funny, hot lead character. Lots of sexual tension.
