“Do you like to watch?” He whispers this question into my ear as he tugs my thong to the side.

I don't answer him, but stay there in the shadows, and watch the couple in the VIP room. I can't look away. Watching them is turning me on more than anything ever has before.

Do I like to watch?

I am fucking furious.
I don't think I have ever 'hated' a book much like I do this one.

If a young girl picked this book up and learn't that everything inside it was okay.

"Do you like to Watch"

Olga therebelreader
In this gripping story, two couples play an erotic game of voyeurism/exhibitionism and find out why it's such a sexy rush. Each person's excitement amplifies the other's arousal. But how far they go to satisfy their sexual fetiche that's fuelled by their sexual fantasies?

They say a voyeur and an exhibitionist are a match made in fetishism heaven. One loves to watch, the other loves to be watched. Sharing intimacy and fantasies is such a big turn on and these two couples get to know how voyeurism

Holy Hell this was a steaming hot read. Yeah, it's short and sweet, but it's also amazingly HOT! Super freaking sexy Jack introduces sweet innocent Celia to a bit of voyeurism in the nightclub he manages, (view spoiler)

Warning, do not read this book if you are sitting in line of the carpool lane waiting for you kids to get out of school. You will be panting hard and parents will notice. True story!

Watching is the story of Celia and Jack. Celia is waiting in line for her coffee at the local coffee house when it is robbed and someone gets hurt. Coming to Celia's aid is Jack. The chemistry is instant and wasting no time Jack lets Celia know he wants to see her again.

Jack is the sexy manager of the hot trendy clu

Jeeeeeeeeeesus Christ! This serial: Watching, Watched & Watch, was so ridiculously freaking sexually intense that if your girlie parts weren't screaming for attention while you read it, you might wanna get yourself checked out ... just sayin.

I am SO fortunate to have been able to receive all three of these episodes at once. I have no idea how anyone read these with a pause. I jumped from one to the other straight thru without a singl

"Do you like to watch?"

Hell yes.
I couldn't put this down. It is a fast read, but it packs a punch with the steam factor.

Christ on a cracker I need to get my hands on "Watched". Jack and Celia are smoking hot and I cannot wait to peek back in on them!

I recently got this one. Not something I usually read, but I wanted to give it a chance.

It deffinietly was interesting, and hot. Made me want to read the next one.

If you are looking for a quick, steamy read - I definitely recommend this one.
This was hot, dirty and short. Loved every minute of it.

Hot quick sexy read!

Stopping by her favorite coffee shop on her way to work, Celia witnesses a robbery. Realizing one of the employees has been shot, she's obviously upset and basically shuts down. When a handsome stranger comes to her aid, she's unsure whether he's real or her imagination. The chemistry between Celia and Jack is not only instant, but intense. He offers to drive her to work and then asks if she'll meet him the next night at the night club he manages. Things heat up rather quick

Hooolleeee Freakin Hell, this book was everything it said it was going to be and so much more. The Sex in this book is Incredibly erotic.

It was beyond Smokin hot from the front cover to the Dedication this book delivered. Yes Jack was the epitome of Hotness and yes Celia was the self confessed good girl/gone bad but together they were off the charts.

Once Celia meets Elle and Drew she is transported to a place she never knew. Celia is on a journey if learning things she never knew about herself

*****3 1/2 STARS*****

This is an erotica novella. I enjoyed most of this story and especially the ending but for some reason it didn't grab my attention completely. I didn't have a problem putting it down and coming back. I'm not sure if it's because it was an erotica I preferred to read it when I was alone or if it's because the book I read prior to this one still impacted me. It's hard to tell. If you are looking for an erotica than this is a good book to pick up.
Oct 21, 2015 rated it it was ok
I received an arc of this book. I would call this a short story rather than a book. While I'm ok with erotica as long as there is a story to support it there really was not much of anything other than sex. No real character development. Not sure if I even like the two main characters since all they do is have sex or watch their friends have sex. ...more

5 scorching hot, dirty stars!

Well I wasn't sure whether I would like this type of story but wow how wrong I was! This author doesn't mess about it's a great quick read. I found it hot and dirty and probably not one you want to read at work or even in Public! Great debut and I look forward to the next instalment!!!

4.25 Stars

So far, so good...Not much plot, but steamy sex scenes. I think it's hilarious that the author dedicated the book to her two favourite male porn stars.
3.5 stars. I liked this one but felt a bit rushed with no actual plot. Still, the ending made me purchase book 2 instantly.
Christina Montminy
This very short novella was extremely hot. A robbery brings two unlikely people together & the very hot relationship begins with direct honesty as to what Jack wants with Celia. It doesn't seem possible for their relationship to get any hotter but as they move forward in it they're chemistry just heats up even more. This book was written well & kept your temperature raised throughout. If your looking for a quick very hot read.....this is it. Recommended. ...more

Holy smokes this short book really hooked me from the beginning. I absolutely freaking loved it and I can't wait, please Bethany don't make me wait months before we get the second part to this story. I need to find out what in the world is going to happen ..... I need to know!!

A woman who lived a pretty routine and boring life. Didn't have a man to answer to until the day her favorite coffee shop got robbed and she happened to be there when it happened and a handsome stranger came to her rescue.

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review

“This is not the kiss of a man who is not interested. His full lips are firm against mine. One of his hands holds the back of my neck, the other my waist. His tongue strokes the seam of my lips and I part them to grant him entry.”

5 sexy, steamy stars!!! This book was so much better and hotter than I ever expected!! It’s short but it’s packed full of heat!!!

If the hysterical dedication, which you just have to read, isn't enough to grab your attention, the opening scene to this one sure will. Watching is fast-paced and chocked full of sex. LOTS of sex- in various places and positions...So if that makes you squirm (and not in the good way) this may not be the book for you.

I liked Jack and Celia's uncanny meeting and how a random act brought them both so much more than they were ever expecting. Be warned this book is hot and heavy and doesn't let up
