Title: Watch Over Me
Author: Tara Sivec
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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?


Watch Over Me is about Addison going through losing her mom, then almost herself. Now she's just trying to live. She's having problems with her dad, and she just can't seem to find happiness anywhere. 

Until one day she meets Zander. He's constantly trying to get her to smile or laugh. And they seem to form a relationship very quickly. But they each have secrets they are keeping from each other. 

Overall this book was okay. It was a nice plot, and good writing. But I couldn't connect with either of the characters. I just felt like something was missing out of the whole thing, so I couldn't connect with it.
