Watching Him (DGU: The Sons D'Aquino) by Jennifer Cody

Watching Him is a fun paranormal romance that masquerades as a contemporary, at least at first. You'll understand what I mean when you read it!

From the blurb:


I like to people watch—and it’s not like I’m unique or creepy or whatever else the people at the office
seem to think. A lot of people enjoy the same activity. Just because I can’t keep my eyes off that guy doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with me. I mean, he’s handsome and all, but I don’t have a crush on him. That would be creepy or at least crazy. I watch him because he’s so weird. He’s charismatic and charming, he makes friends with everyone, and he has a well of patience a mile deep. All that is totally normal, but the fact that he can’t see me? Like, at all? That’s weird. Tell me it’s not, I dare you. Because it is. It’s totally super weird that I’m invisible to him. Weirder still? I don’t think anyone knows his name; I certainly don’t.

Watching Him is a 48k MM Paranormal Office Romance between an obsessive guy with some eye-catching assets and a man who's able to see just fine as long as he isn't looking at his stalker. This is the prequel to the next Diviner's Game Universe series: The Sons D'Aquino, and while it stands alone, it reintroduces as adults a few of the Aquino boys that readers fell in love with in The Diviner's Game Trilogy.

Jacquie's Review:

I really, really, need to go back and read the rest of the books in this world. I own them, just haven't gotten to them!

Don't get me wrong, this can absolutely be read as a standalone as Mick gets an introduction to things that serves as our introduction and it is a prequel series, setting the scene for the larger world. It was also useful to me that I'd read some of the Hudson Hub stories, though I haven't read the Diviners Game series. Those that have read them might get more out of the cameos in the book. 

Watching Him was steamy and fun. I got to just over the halfway mark and had actually forgotten that it was supposed to be a paranormal story, so that reveal was wow!

Then we get our crash course in the Hudson Hub and everything that was kind of strange that I'd just written off just started to make sense.

The relationship between Mick and "that guy" really just worked. I loved the possessiveness that he showed Mick and the steamy scenes were fantastic!

All in all, a great series opener.
