Declan, the sexy, driven powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm . . .

O'Brien Family #4
Cecy Robson
Releasing May 23, 2017

RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in FEEL ME, Declan, the sexy, driven powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm . . .

Declan O’Brien was always driven to take his place among Philly’s elite, working hard for everything he’s earned, including the title of Assistant District Attorney. He’s won seemingly impossible cases, so he’s furious when he’s assigned to lead the one unit he doesn’t want. 

Melissa Fenske was born hearing impaired to a neglectful mother, finding solace when she was adopted by a young attorney, now Declan’s boss. As the current Director of Victim Services, Melissa’s livid when Declan is placed in the main unit she oversees. She can’t forget their disastrous first encounter. Or shake how he makes her feel.

Declan considers the assignment another step toward his political aspirations, despite that he can’t get Melissa out of his mind. Melissa sees Declan as egotistical and self-serving, kicking herself for how fast she’s falling for him. Someone as hot, smooth, and perfect as Declan isn’t supposed to want her.

In another situation with any other woman, Declan wouldn’t hesitate to take Melissa to bed. But she is the boss’s daughter, and for once, Declan finds himself wanting more than just a one night stand.

Neither counted on each other. Both just met their match.

The idea of a hearing impaired heroine was interesting. I also really liked that this was a factor in their relationship, in who Melissa is, but not a deal breaker. This appealed to me, as it was nice to see a heroine who was less than the "ideal" but still the heroine of the story, and perfect for Declan, the hero. I really liked that.

Oddly, though, I thought there were times when the hearing loss that she deals with was too much of a non-issue. Places where I thought it should have been addressed and it wasn't. It was a minor thing, but it was there.
I enjoyed the chemistry between Declan and Melissa. I liked that I believed in him, and in his attraction to her, that he really wanted to be involved with her, that he cared about her, and the interest had nothing to do with her being deaf and everything to do with her being a woman.

I thought the pacing was mostly good, although I thought the story took a long time to get going and that there were a couple of extra characters that were not necessary and slowed down the progression of the romance. Once I got farther into the story, I was able to enjoy it and I liked it.

I do recommend this overall.
