O’Brien Family #4
By: Cecy Robson
Released 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.

I didn't expect the protagonists to be as touching as Melissa and Declan!
Let me start from the beginning. When I started the book, I was expecting a rather stern and not likable hero. But what I got was a hero with complex character. On the surface, Declan seems to be a jerk but when the surface is scratched, I got to know a completely different guy with so much depth to him. I love his evolution throughout the book. That's why I kind of fell in love with him at the end. Of course, he has to do some idiotic moves at times to get annoyed at. Of course, why else would be a hero!
As for the heroine, Melissa, she was a perfectly loveable person from the beginning. She is so strong and so confident inspite of having a few insecurities like a normal person. She is so relate-able, more so than Declan. She is kind of my hero after this story. I love her passion for her work and also her sexy persona around Declan.
I believe this is one book which is a more character centric story rather than a story one. The story is a basic plot which leaves maximum exposure of the reader's mind and heart to the protagonists' emotions and feelings. There are certain parts which are too realistic,like the abused clients and their backstories which adds to the tension in the story. The romance is quite heavy and sweet in turns. This story stayed with me even a bit after I finished the book, especially Melissa's character. I believe I would reread this one to enjoy the nuances of the protagonists'!
The pace of the story is at the perfect pitch while the imagery created by the author's words is executed with the right touch. I for one enjoyed the book and I am confident that I would have many more books from the author which would touch me as much as this one.
I received a copy for reviewing purposes.
My one line review : A protagonists' centric story with a heavy dose of sexy romance.
My rating : 4.5/5
My reread factor : 3/5
