    Another great read by Leslie Kelly!

    The first book in Hollywood Heat Series, Watching You, is another great read from my favourite romantic suspense author Leslie Kelly! It’s a playful twist star-struck attraction in this novel. This time, it’s the former movie-star turned director Reece who feels an instant attraction to the average-looking, sweaty, red-headed jogger visiting his Aunt’s art gallery. But Jessica Jensen is not about to follow the script Reece has planned. To top things off, someone keeps taking attempts at their lives – but who is the target Jessica or Reece? Who is the villain? Is it a business rival, Jessica’s ex or one of Reece’s jealous and obsessed fans? I’ll admit it, right away my emotions were on edge as I initially hated Reece for what seemed to be his arrogant and controlling personality. I felt equally ashamed for Jessica, who came across as weak and submissive. They were such intense feelings, and for that, Leslie should be commended for her strong character development. I found myself wanting to read more and more needing to understand these characters. By the second chapter I had already “forgiven” the characters for their faux pas and perhaps understood the reason(s) driving their behaviour. I’ve always enjoyed Leslie’s use of voice in all her novels. The dialogue flows easily and always proves realistic to her characters. Leslie’s sense of humour is what initially drew me to her writing and once again, she didn’t disappoint. Jessica’s sarcasm provides for much comic relief throughout the story, particularly in contrast to Reece’s more controlled and calculated persona. Playful banter between the Winchester brothers seemed genuine and familiar and provides a good setup for the next novels in this series. I related to Jessica’s no-bull attitude and inner struggle to prove her place in the world despite a hard upbringing. Throughout the novel Leslie was able to draw upon both the direct contrasts in lifestyles of the rich and famous to the pay cheque to pay cheque life of Jessica, while exposing mutual similarities and vulnerabilities. I was reeled in and engaged as I followed along with real-life situations, actions and outcomes. Leslie’s influences from and references to current pop culture only emphasized her strong wit and sarcasm. Needless to say, I read it quickly. If you haven’t read a Leslie Kelly novel, you’re missing out!

    Romantic Suspense - Mystery

    Truly enjoyable story that captured my interest immediately and held it throughout – superb writing – great plot – wonderful characters – can’t wait for book two – Jessica Jensen aspires to make it big in movies as a screenwriter. She works hard, is talented, pretty and also a very good person. Her life has been difficult but she won the lottery when adopted by Liza’s family. Liza and she are tight as sisters and BFFs. When Jessica promotes Liza’s art to Reece Winchester’s Aunt Sharon she has no idea he sees and wants her. Reese Winchester is a man of Hollywood. As a child star in a family of stars he has seen much and has secrets. When they finally meet there is hot immediate chemistry. Their interlude is rudely interrupted by a window shattering and that is just the beginning of the bad things that seem to dog them. With one thing after another happening it is not an easy road to a HEA for the two of them…not at all…but it is an action-packed read that kept me turning pages to find out what would happen next. Reece and Jessica made a great couple and I loved their dialogue that had her stating exactly what she thought without being star struck or fearful of saying what she was thinking. And Reece…great guy and great book boyfriend! This story introduced me to a new author – one I want to read work by again. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the other two books in the series. I would like to thank NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing-Forever Yours for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
