5 Stars...and most of you know I don't throw that out all to often...

This brilliant author just has it! She can write a book that reads like a movie and there are never any uncomfortable reading pauses... her style is flawless. "Someone to Watch Over Me" was filled with grand surprises, grand adventure and out of this world love. From page one you know you're in for a delicious ride.

"Michael watched her walk away. Did he mind waiting an hour for her?
Not at all.
He'd been waiting years for her."

The build up to one of the sexiest love scenes I've ever read is worth its wait in gold... My heart rate soared, I was on the edge of the couch and my mouth was embarrassingly hanging open.

Good Lord it is was amazing.

My soul is filled with lead knowing that after reading this one there's only a couple of this fine ladies books I haven't read, and I'm already missing some of the best couples I've ever known.
