Feel Me (O'Brien Family #4) by Cecy Robson



Goodreads Review



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.  



4 Shepherd Dog Stars.

Office romances don't always work for me. Feel Me did. I am a happy bunny.

Declan O'Brien appointed A.D.A is smooth, women love him and he loves women. But there is one woman who doesn't fall for his charms. The less she falls the more he wants her.

I didn’t always like our male lead in this book but he grew on me and in the end I was rooting for me. He did try to make up in the grovel department but not enough for me to be honest.

Melissa Fenske doesn't like Declan she thinks that he is unsuitable for the job and maybe in the beginning he is.

Melissa is a fantastic female lead I love books where either one of the main characters has a disability.  Melissa is hearing impaired add a tough start to life and as a character I admire her.

Declan wants it all. D.A for Homicide not SACU. Mayor and even Senator. There is a spanner in his works. He wants Melissa but he is a slight commitment-phobe. And eventually he screws it up.

Feel Me left me raw, emotionally drained and a mess yet despite all that, the sap in me always loves to see that love really can conquer all.

Our MC as a couple complement one another. Ms. Robson has a unique writing style that pulls you into the loud, boisterous in your business Catholic family. I personally love every single moment of their antics. In saying that though Wren is MY favorite O'Brien. Major girl crush going on here.

Although we get an Epilogue the ending and our couple making up felt somewhat abrupt.

On a side matter note the author did a fantastic job of being tasteful and respectful and what the survivors of such hideous crimes go through.

When I read Wren’s book 3 I said I’d backtrack and read 1 & 2 but I never did. I have now bought book 1 to read.
