Addison Snow is your typical teenager. She has a family that loves her, friends that make her laugh, and she’s wrapped up in the excitement of graduating high school and going off to college to pursue her dream of becoming an author. When her mother, who also happens to be Addison’s best friend, dies unexpectedly, her world comes to a crashing halt.

Death changes everyone…

To make the pain go away, Addison and her father travel down separate, dark paths. She chooses to end her grief forever, while he drowns his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. How do you learn to live again when the most important person in your life is gone?

Addison struggles to pick up the pieces of her life. Instead of getting back to being the carefree teenager she once was, she’s stuck handling all of the responsibilities that should have been her father’s. She has no time to grieve, no time for emotions, and no time for happiness…until Zander Reinhardt walks in. All it takes is one little handwritten note on a napkin to kick-start her back to life and help her realize that maybe there’s more to that life than pain.

But can it really be that simple? Can she really trust this man who makes her feel alive again for the first time in a year?

Addison and Zander both have secrets they aren’t ready to share. When the truth finally comes out, is it enough to tear them apart or has something bigger than themselves always been watching over them, pushing them together, making sure they both get their happily ever after?

Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars

I can not believe how talented Author Tara Sivec is, she had me laughing so hard in Seduction and Snacks, I swooned over Brady in Because Of You and she touched my heart in Watch Over Me! I tend to get nervous that I will not get pulled in to sad emotional  books!! I hate reading books that leave me sad, I like to escape into a happy ever after book. So I tend to shut out the sad, I put up a wall and just try to read the words without the feelings. Watch Over Me was beautifully written, and I was engrossed into by the first chapter. It was a slow emotional book that gradually tore at your heart. I was really touched by how true and moving this story was carried out!  I felt absorbed into each word and chapter. Addison feelings were portrayed so perfect and real that I felt her slowly opening up and letting her heart feel. I felt right there  holding her hand. Zander with his gentle soul and wisdom was a breathe of fresh air. He took my breath away and eased his way into Addison world and heart! Beautiful book, one you won’t be sorry to have read it will touch your heart!!
