Series: O'Brien Family #4
Publication Date: May 23, 2017
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.
I’ve waited for this book since I met Declan and Melissa in the first one. Cecy finally put me out of my misery and gave me what I wanted. I’m pretty meh about romance lately, but Feel Me gave me all the feels.
Declan is on the rise. He’s an Assistant D.A. who takes his career serious and has high aspirations. Not to mention the man is muy caliente! He has no problem with the ladies, except when it comes to Melissa. They didn’t exactly start out on the right foot and he tends to muddle it up whenever he sees her. It’s quite entertaining. Lucky for him he gets the opportunity to get things right when they wind up working together.
The thing is, Melissa is deaf. This is a huge reason I wanted to read Feel Me. It’s rare that we get a hearing impaired heroine, so I was eager to get to know Melissa. She’s dealt with adversity, but has come out on top. I really like her fire and drive, especially when it comes to protecting the sexual assault victims she works with.
Declan and Melissa are a great fit. They have wonderful chemistry in and out of the office. I love that she isn’t timid or become someone else around him. She has no qualms about calling him out on any bullshit. They have their rough moments, but thankfully the angst is just right.
And of course, there’s the whole O’Brien family! I love when they’re all together being loud and giving each other crap.
I do have to say that I could do with a little less commentary about Declan’s good looks and how everyone reacts to him. It gets a bit tiresome.
Overall, though, I really enjoyed Feel Me. I just can’t go wrong with Cecy’s books.
