Viola’s always been that girl from thatfamily, so a scholarship to a prestigious private school in Florida was supposed to be her ticket out of poverty and into a brand-new life. But Viola’s secrets have followed her. Her relationship with the intelligent and gorgeous Riel should have been the salvation she needed—he understands her troubled past better than anyone. But then weird things start to happen.
Missing personal items.
The unsettling feeling that she’s being watched.
Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.
Watching You by Shannon Greenland was a fantastic quick read with just the right amount of romance and suspense to keep me turning pages.
I adored Riel’s character. Even faced with huge disappointment, he is everything good and kind, and an incredible big brother. Viola is no stranger to hard times, growing up in backwater Tennessee with a stripper mother, felon father, and addict sister. Somehow, she rises above the struggle and works hard for an academic scholarship to a prestigious academy, which has the potential to pave the way to her dream – MIT.
I really enjoyed this author’s writing style. It flows naturally, the dialogue is genuine, and the characters well developed. The storyline is solid and engaging.
I highly recommend this for fans of YA Romance and Suspense. !
