About the Book
Life hasn’t been kind to Harper Evans.
The small-town gossip about her dead dad and drug-addicted mother has taken its toll. But when her mother is admitted to a long-term rehab facility a few hours away, Harper sees her chance for a fresh start.
A shoebox apartment above a Chinese restaurant isn’t exactly the escape she dreamed of, but she makes it work. With limited funds and social life, she views her new city through a dusty old pair of binoculars.
There’s no harm in looking.
Just a peek and I’ll stop.
Harper finds her new pastime quickly turning into a full-fledged obsession. She begins falling for a man she doesn’t know–has never met–as she watches him have sex through the window of his apartment. Daydreaming about what it would be like if she were one of his conquests.
We all reach a point when watching isn’t enough–when we can no longer just be a spectator in our own life. That’s when it’s supposed to get good, right? When we take control and go after what we want. But what happens when it all blows up in our face and we’re left with less than nothing?
|I only gave this 3 stars because it almost became my first DNF book. I HATE starting a book and not finishing it, so I stuck with it. I’m glad I stayed with it, but it wasn’t the greatest book I have ever read. Once Harper got passed her stalker tenancies (watching Luke having sex with multiple women, following him around, etc) and actually got her obsession gone, or to where we didnt have to hear so much about him, the book took a turn for the better. I believe I won a giveaway Jiffy Kate had in a group on facebook and I was able to choose a free book written by them. I chose Watch and See.|
