About the book:

In the first book of a thrilling new romantic suspense trilogy, USA Today bestselling author Leslie A. Kelly shows just how hot – and how dangerous – Hollywood can be.

In the shadows, someone is always watching
Aspiring screenwriter Jessica Jensen grew up on movies starring heartthrob Reece Winchester, the eldest brother of a Hollywood dynasty. She never thought she’d meet the man in person, though. Actor, director, millionaire, and gorgeous mystery man–he’s every woman’s fantasy.

Reece wants Jessica the moment he sees her, and he’s a man who always gets what he wants. At first he was only after a night in her bed, but as he comes to know the smart, confident woman beneath the stunning exterior, he realizes once will never be enough.

Unfortunately, Jessica’s real-life Cinderella story is about to take a deadly turn…

Reece’s world is filled with fierce ambition and dark family secrets the Winchesters desperately want to hide. But he and his brothers aren’t the only ones who know those secrets. Someone else is out there, waiting to strike. Waiting-and always watching.

When danger finally steps out of the shadows, Reece will have to face his past. And Jessica will have to decide just how far she can trust the man she loves with her heart…and her life.


I’ll Be Watching You by Leslie A. Kelly is the first book in the romantic suspense Hollywood Heat series. This first of the series was actually first published in 2018 and is now being reprinted with an all new cover. And even though this is a series each of the books can be read on their own as with each book the main couple changes.

Jessica Jensen is an aspiring screenwriter who is currently helping her artist sister with her show when she meets Reece Winchester. As soon as Reece saw Jessica he knew that he had to meet her and Reece is the type who always gets what he wants. However, when these two do meet someone takes a shot at the room they are in and with both having secrets in their pasts Jessica and Reece aren’t sure who was the suspected target.

Well, I have to admit I got off to a rough, slow start with I’ll Be Watching You and wasn’t sure I would like it at all. In the beginning of this one I failed to find any romance or suspense to it and got a little worried however once the story took off a bit more I did find the rest a worthwhile read leaving me to give this one 3 1/2 stars overall.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
