#BookReview: Watching You by @SeGreenAuthor #WatchingYou #NetGalley

About the Book:

Viola’s always been that girl from that family, 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.

Frightening messages.

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.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I have been a fan of SE Green since I read her other series Killer Instinct and this one although not as good as that one was still worth the read.

Notes and Opinions:   I wasn't sure what to make of this one when I was approved for it. I really loved what the author was trying to do but I think it would have worked better as a new adult vs. teen.  I did enjoy it but I think it could have been a lot better. The characters were all there and well formed but the story itself just felt a little off and a little out of place. The mystery was done very well and we all know that SE Green can do mystery!! (like really well!!). So that part of this story was all 5 stars!  It really came down to this just missing something that I couldn't put my finger on. 

Go Into This One Knowing: This one works with the characters, plot, and story. Worth the Read
