Tour Stop: WATCH OVER ME by Tara Sivec ~ Review/Giveaway


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 kick­start 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?

Review ~ 5 Stars
Can’t quit thinking about this book!

WATCH OVER ME was a beautifully written and emotionally charged story that I just can’t get out of my head. It sucks you in and holds you there until the very end.

Addison goes from being a normal, fun loving, happy teen to barely keeping it together after her mom dies. Her dad becomes an alcoholic and continues to fail at rehab leaving the responsibility of running the family bakery completely to Addison as she struggles through the grief of losing her mom. Addison finally reaches the point where she realized that she can no longer support her father – she really just needs to focus on herself.

Along comes Zander and his napkin notes…. helping Addison move on and live again. As their relationship develops, Addison is receiving advice and counseling from a therapist recommended by her friend. Zander is the perfect person to pull Addison back into the dating world….until she finds out that there is something that he has kept hidden from her. Something so devastating that she must seek out advice from her therapist…. I’m not going to ruin this….but this is the part I can’t stop thinking about – WOW!! Just loved it – I’ll read anything Tara writes after reading this book!
