Watching You by Shannon Greenland is a young adult/new adult contemporary suspense. This one really reads a bit more like contemporary romance with a side of suspense to it though but more on that later.

Viola has had a pretty rough start in her young life, her mother is a stripper, father in prison ...more

The romance in Watching you was really good but I was a little disappointed when I found out who the stalker was. I'm all about romance and so for me, this book was really good. I'm going to try and explain without giving too much away.

Viola has a secret. She wants to attend MIT more than anything. ...more

When I was approached about reading and reviewing this book, my answer was a definite YES as I love and read all of Shannon Greenland/ S.E Green's books to date.

Such a great read!

It was so refreshing reading about high school teenagers written as actual teenagers instead of grade schoolers. (If you read my review on "Tradition" by Brendan Kiely, then you know what I'm talking about). I am so sick and tired of reading high school teenagers as the cliche mor ...more

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that’s had me guessing incorrectly so many times on who the stalker was as this one.
