review || FIND ME by Margaret Watson

Margaret Watson | December 9, 2013 | Romantic Suspense
Donovan Family, book 3


After witnessing the murder of an FBI agent in a parking garage late one night, Lizzy Monroe meets with the FBI and agrees to work with a sketch artist. But on her way out of the office, she comes face to face with the killer – another FBI agent. She knows from experience what happens when a criminal is a member of law enforcement – cops protect their own. So when the killer shows up at her door later that morning, she knows she has no choice but to run. 

From the moment he sees her, Mac Donovan is intrigued by – and in lust with – their beautiful witness. After Lizzy disappears, he spends his free time tracking her down. When he finally finds her on a remote island in the San Juans, their chemistry is explosive and the sex is even hotter. But he's hiding his identity from her. What will happen when she discovers who he really is? Will she be able to forgive his betrayal? Or will the killer find them first? 

Warning: Contains explicit sex and graphic language.

Every now and then you find a gem that you wish you had read when it first released. Sometimes, in order to find those gems, you need to find a review, or have it recommended, or in this care, be asked to review it by the author.

So thank you, Margaret Watson, for offering Find Me to me to review -- you have found a new reader in me.

When Lizzy takes a break from the translating gig she has at a hospital, she finds herself witness to a murder. With a past that does not warrant trust in the city's finest, Lizzy next finds herself on the run -- she will not give up the information the FBI wants.

Mac was drawn to the woman when he first saw her, but after she disappears, he chalks his obsession up to the fact Lizzy has the answers they need -- when we all know just exactly what she does to him.

I loved the drama of this story. As a reader, you're actually given the answer right away at the beginning, but the suspense and angst as Lizzy fights to keep herself hidden and safe from the perpetrator was part of what made this story so fun. Add to the mix Mac, their first nameless night of passion, and the ensuing emotions and relationship after... this was such an enjoyable read.

The characters were developed in a way that you felt you knew them. You could understand both Lizzy and Mac's intentions as the story drew deeper and fuller. Then there was the Donovan family -- and thank goodness this story is part of a series that belongs to them, because I loved every single one of those Donovans.

This particular story may be two and a half years old, but it's certainly not too late to pick it up and see what you've been missing these last two-plus years. I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Watson has thought up for this family!
