Another great read from this author. I thoroughly enjoy her blend of mystery, intrigue and romance. This book continues with the characters we have come to know so well in other novels. Each one becomes an integral part of the story and grows on you. Well written and well paced.

Format: Kindle Edition
For me this book was a perfect wrap-up of all the events that have taken place in past books. But the first thing I feel like I need to point out is that you should probably read previous books first. If you haven't the sheer amount of plot lines going on and the reasoning behind them may take longer to grasp. I also need to say that if you are planning on reading previous books please don't continue reading this review as it will inevitably have spoilers. Having read nearly all of Karen Rose' books I was itching to get this latest one and as soon as it was ready to go on my Kindle I eagerly started.

Stevie Mazzetti is a ballsy woman, however she is also a woman that has spent 8 years grieving the loss of her husband and son. With the killer behind bars she has a path to follow and is desperate to rectify some things. Her ex-partner turned out to be a dirty cop and as Stevie starts to dig cases up, it seems her life as well as her daughters are now in danger. The danger levels are pretty high up from early in the book and to be fair don't drop until the very end making for a fast-paced and pretty tense read.

The additional characters that are involved in this story could take a while to detail, but the main player being Clay Maynard the PI who wants to protect Stevie and her kid. Clay is a great lead character and although he is the main lead in this story we see the return of many other characters from previous books. One of the things I love about the Karen Rose books is that the characters are not forgotten. They may appear frequently or just the once but you get to see glimpses of people from previous stories and how they link to the current characters.

A Karen Rose novel guarantees nail-biting suspense and a roller coaster ride, narrated in no-nonsense prose; and 'Watch Your Back' is no exception. The main protagonists are characters from earlier offerings, so the context is immediate and real. The plot is riveting and the conclusion satisfying.

Karen Rose does not disappoint with Watch Your Back. More action packed than a bag of microwave popcorn the story keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire story. Great job.

My first book by this author and it won't be the last. Good plot, some steamy parts, unexpected twists, and a real page-turner. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars, but you can't do halves. I definitely recommend this book!

Watch Your Back by Karen Rose is another thrill a minute read.

Homicide Detective Stevie Mazzetti has endured tragedy that would have taken down a lesser person. She vows to right the wrongs her former partner dealt the city of Baltimore. This brings her to the attention of some very dangerous people. Fighting the good fight has but Stevie and those she loves in grave danger. But local PI Clay Maynard has made it his job to protect Stevie and her young daughter.

Clay Maynard work as a PI and security specialist has him on alert 24/7. He sees the danger surrounding Stevie and will do anything in his power to watch over her. Clay sees so much more in Stevie then she sees in herself. Clay had falling in love with Stevie from the moment he met her. Stevie has some major sorrows to overcome before she can let anyone into her world.

When the danger escalates Stevie is forced to put her life and the life of your family in Clay’s capable hands. Watching Clay put his life on the line for her is a real eye opener for Stevie. She knew Clay was an honorable man and his caring for her young daughter opens up her heart to a love worth fighting to keep.

But the people want to stop Stevie will stop at nothing in order to keep their long held secrets hidden. Will this new found love be able to flourish before the evil comes knocking on their door?

Watch Your Back is another exceptional book by Karen Rose. The tension is top notch and will have you unable to put the book down. The romance between Stevie and Clay is emotional as well as all out sexy. It was an added treat to revisit with characters from past books. Karen Rose is tops on my list of authors I must read.
