I’m watching you….
Cassie has reluctantly taken on of the lowest positions possible for an attorney. A temp job sorting through mundane emails, working in what she describes as a bunker. But e-mails from a particular lawyer upstairs grabs her full attention. Highly personal emails for one Forest Watts. One of the firms top lawyers. Suddenly she becomes obsessed with meeting him and enmeshing herself into every sordid detail of his life.
The storyline seemed to plug along nicely until about 80% when it jetted off in a totally different and unexpected direction. It seemed completely out of place to fit where (I thought) the storyline seemed to be heading.
This book had a bit of an identity crisis. It had every intention of becoming a thriller, with Cassie playing the role of an obsessed, dangerous stalker. But for me, at times Cassie came off as misunderstood and vulnerable and my heart went out to her. Lol! Yes! I felt for the off kilter stalker! Please don’t judge me! She has some understandable reasons for her behavior!
Overall, a fun read and look forward to more from this author.
