    I had totally mixed feelings for this book and I am still conflicted with the rating I gave it. I liked the story and characters but I hated how it was written.

It really drove me crazy how it was assumed that we as readers would know things that were never explained before in the book. For me the book would have been a lot better with some back story or some kind of explanations about what was going on. There were a number on places where I just wanted throw my Kindle across the room because the book was so poorly written when it comes to the author explaining things and assuming we are all the little voices in her head that know everything that is going on, went on and will be going on without ever really getting ant clear explanations half the time. I see there are more books in the series and with this being the first I am almost afraid to even attempt to read the others. I loved the characters but I hated the writhing style so much I am thinking I will save my money and wait and see if the others end up free like this one before I even think about giving Ms. Brookes another chance with her annoying writhing style.

    Watching (PAVAD: FBI Romantic Suspense, #1) by Calle J. Brookes This is the first book in the PAVAD Series, I am really enjoying this series so far. The writing is really good and I love all the character being introduced and I assume some will have their own stories. Really good suspense story line along with romance. I have rated Watching 4 stars, and I will continue to read the rest of this series.

    It was interesting enough. Reminded me of a criminal minds episode. One thing for me is that I felt there is an imbalance between the seriousness of the case and the romantic tension, so at some points it felt a bit awkward for me. Maybe I'm comparing it to a CM episode too much. All in all it was enjoyable so I plan to look for the two prequels and continue with the series

I can't help but compare Watching to a more in-depth Criminal Minds episode, without as much creep factor. There is a love story but it is a low steam book with more sexual tension than actual sex. The story did drag on at times and seemed long depsite the average page count. I think this is a result of there being two different story lines. The primary story line concludes at one point and a secondary story line continues on for the last quarter of the book. The result made the story really drag at times. In the end, I think the book (and series) have a lot of potential but unfortunately Watching came across as too long and a bit boring. I'm still going to read the second book in the series because the blurb seems quite interesting with the heroine being an FBI agent with Aspergers syndrome. I'll wait until I finish Wanting before I decide if I'll read more of this series.

    This was free on Amazon. I wanted to enjoy this book and on one hand I did. But there were elements of it that just didn't quite gel with me. For one thing there seemed to be a lot of worry from Hellbrook about the women on the team; even though they are all meant to be fully trained FBI personnel they seem to be unable to defend themselves and have to be protected at all times.

Another thing is that there are a lot of characters that get introduced in this book. This is fine but what doesn't help is when the author uses different names for the characters which can be a little confusing. As to the story-line, I could understand the main story of someone killing brunette girls to an extent. But there was no discussion as to why the killer started killing so many girls and given that the PAVAD team are meant to be profilers I would have thought there would be more about this. Also how on earth could they have missed that the attempts on some of the team's lives were being done by a different person. It just didn't gel with me and the storyline felt a little forced. I've got the next book in the series as this was free as well so we will see what it is like.

    not really a story about a special unit of the FBI. More a coming up love story besides some crime ...... not really, not happening. If you like drama, wild and unrealistic storys, unprofessionel professionals, than you should read the book ! Which unit chief calls his teammember PRINCESS .....give me a break.

    There was potential, is how this review needs to start... the issue is that it is so lackluster and repetitive. The same theme was done over and over, will they, wont they, what next, etc. I found this boring and by 75% of the book I was zoned out and thinking of the next story. There was so much here but honestly the book could have shaved off 100 pages because it was too much of the same thing

    Good! This was the first book I've read by this author. I don't read crime/thriller books often,but when I do I have a bad ha it if binge reading a series. This was the first crime book I've read in a while. I did enjoy the story. I don't think it was as polished as it could have been. It was drawn out at parts, repetitive at others, but the story was addictive. The characters were appealing. If you like a crime novel, that isn't bombarded by lots of technical words then you'll enjoy this one.

    Two psychopaths...one love Good read. Great suspense. Opposites attract. Love was a slow burn that finally combust. And the psychopaths in this book were well done. I would have preferred that the author gave voice to both of the psychos not just one. Supporting characters also a delight. Editing required.

A couple of so-so points: Some inconsistencies (nine months since Linda died, then six months since Linda had touched him; they added her to an already completed team, later she says Hellbrook probably felt protective of the woman whose place she had taken). Some common grammatical errors (Your/you're, than/then, their/they're).

    Good Story. Only complaints: 1)The relationship went a bit too fast. 2) It definitely felt like there could have been more to the story like teasing the couple, teasing Hell, getting to know each other better, looking into the rest of the "cult" like community who stoned as punishment. 3)Sometimes the characters went from natural (from my P.O.V) to a more proper speech. 4) Switching character P.O.V. with no indicator until you start reading.

    This book is a great free read. It follows a sweet and sexy FBI profiler named Georgia Dennis. She and her boss Michael “Hell” Hellbrook are trying to catch a psycho that has been stoning his young victims to death. While trying to find the identity of the killer, Georgia finds herself the new target of the killer. There are lots of plot twists and some steamy romance throughout the book. The story moved fast, which I really liked. Overall a pretty good weekend read.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written who-dun-it murder mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great murder mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this book. The characters were fun (though sometimes hard to keep track of) and the plot was interesting. I got a Criminal Minds vibe from it too which I have yet to determine whether that is a good thing or not. I thought the main two characters - Georgia and Hellbrook - were developed quite well. I sometimes found their hesitance to be together annoying, but I could understand it knowing about Georgia’s past. I’d say that strangely, my favourite character was Stephenson.

I didn’t like him that’s for sure, however, he seemed to me like the deepest character. He was one of the antagonists and yet, somehow I was able to feel slight sympathy for him even though he did some really bad things. One of the things I’d wished we’d seen in the book was more background on the relationship between Georgia and Bryan and also some more bonding scenes with Matthew seen as he played a dominating factor in Georgia’s life and her motivations. I only really had one major problem with this book and that came with the story itself. Sometimes I’d get really confused as to who the person they were after was. We had the original killer and then we had Stephenson. Sometimes it just felt as though we’d never find the original seen as the story had strayed quite a bit. Not to mention that when they did finally get him it was quite underwhelming to say the least. The real climax was more with the Stephenson kidnapping thing than with the original murres. The original case was rather predictable but Stephenson was not so much. I think they should have just stuck to one or the other. Overall, I quite liked this book. It wasn’t anything too special in my opinion but I think it has broadened my horizons when it comes to “crime novels” if you can count this as one.

IDK... look around? Again, he does something stupid that makes it obvious someone was there, so to cover up any DNA that might incriminate him, he "accidentally" burns down the motel all the agents are staying in. Frankly, if I knew for certain that the author intended this to be funny, I might finish the book, but I strongly suspect that's not what she's doing, so I'm done.

This is a romance, but not a pot boiling erotic romance. The focus is definitely on the search for a very intelligent, and incredibly devious serial killer who is killing young girls of a particular body type and coloring in the St. Louis area, a man who is killing women by the ancient biblical method of stoning. The chase is intense, and the leads are many, but once the man is captured, the FBI team cannot simply fall into their desk chairs and sigh, mopping their brows. There is another suspect on the loose, and a lot more mayhem beginning, much of it intimately involving the FBI team. This story is an incredibly intense, many faceted crime thriller with a complex plot that will keep the reader guessing from one end to the other. It can be read in a single day, if you have all day, and 1/2 the night. The story ends with an incredibly tense moment and it's quite a satisfying ending.

Female law enforcement officers have enough to contend with in the first place without the advances of their co-workers welcomed or not. PDA is not acceptable in that venue especially in these ligation happy times. the romance was unbelievable and frankly, rather juvenile. The suspense was not up to par either. The serial killer's apprehension was too convenient; certainly not the result of brilliant police work. The other mystery had potential but was clumsy and ultimately silly. again it certainly did not reflect well on this supposedly elite unit of the FBI. Readable? Yes. but far from satisfying.

    I gave this book 3.5 stars.... for the following reasons: I had a hard time following the storyline.... it felt like something was missing... details, lots and lots of details! I mean it was like the characters were in one place then teleport to another place without the details to fill in the transport. I felt lost most of the time as if I could not put 2 and 2 together. I blame this on details and combining sentences together. It was slow to start but jump all over the place.

    Sooo good. Tracking down a serial killer is not for the faint of heart. Georgia Dennis is a likable character. You can feel her conflicting emotions about Hellbrook. I think the tension between the two should have been more in the background and the details of the case should have been the main focus of the story.....but that is just my opinion. I enjoyed the story. I think those who like romantic suspense will like this book. If you pick up a copy I would love to heat your views on it. Enjoy!

    I liked this book I liked this book over all. The story was enthralling and the characters were interesting, my issues with the book were that it was written a bit weird... I don't know how else to explain it. It seemed almost disjointed..? I did however really liked how there was almost no inner monologue or exhausting character thought process with this book. Lots of action,and passion. I would recommend this book and I will definitely continue with this series of it continues to be free like I liked this book I liked this book over all.

    WTF? THIS HAD SOME SUPER TWISTED SHIT IN IT (yes and I liked it). ONE THING BOTHERED ME THE SPELLING OF PITTSBURGH IN THIS BOOK WAS WRONG WE HAVE AN (H) ON THE END OF OUR CITY AND ALL THROUGH THE BOOK IT DOES NOT HAVE THE (H). THAT IS NOT COOL TO A PITTSBURGHER. THAT’S THE ONLY THING I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK, OTHER THAN THAT, I LOVED IT. OH! I WENT AND BOUGHT 2 MORE BOOKS IN THIS SERIES. ;D

    Hello all!!! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I’ve been slacking this week on my reading. I was finally able to finish this book #watching by #callejbrookes it’s not a typical boon I’d read but I really enjoyed it. Two FBI agents on the search for a serial killer who’s stoning his victims to death. But while the agents are searching for the killer someone is watching and sabotaging their case. It brings the two agents closer as well so there’s a little romance. I highly recommend this book
