Publisher's Summary

At the tender age of seven, Jess Riley's parents were ripped out of her life by the Tear, a ripple of white light in the sky which randomly transports people from Earth to alternate realities and distant planets once a year. On the night the Tear first appeared, the Watchers, a mysterious group of men possessing supernatural powers, made their presence known to the leaders of the world, earning their complete trust to deal with the turmoil the Tear caused.

Now 22 years old, Jess is an agent working for the Watcher Agency searching for a way to bring her parents back home. When the leader of the Watchers, Mason Collier, recruits her to join his team, Jess quickly discovers she is meant to play a major role in sealing the Tear forever. Mason and Jess instantly find themselves drawn to one another but they both resist their mutual attraction for different reasons. Broken by past events in their lives, they each struggle to overcome their fears and find the strength to take a chance on one another.

Great book on its own

This is easily the best written out of the series. The story is engaging and has a great plot. Character interactions feel normal and not rushed in this one.

The series goes downhill after this one unfortunately. So if you are just looking for the one book, get this one. Don't get dragged into the rest of it.

Great story line!

I loved every part of this listen. The writing was spectacular and the story line entertaining. I wanted to keep listening because it had me on edge. The narrator did an excellent job building up each character. I loved the romance, perfectly portrayed while keeping it clean.

For those wanting something sweet, with action, adventure, and surprises around every corner, this one is perfect.

This story sucks you in!

First things first... this book is rated "simmering" but to me it's more on the sweet side. If I had a teenager, if let him/her read the book. Nothing too... sexual is what I'm trying to say. However... I can tell that the author is trying to build up the suspense, so I can not speak to how appropriate books 2, 3, and 4 will be. I rarely do romance, I mostly read YA dystopian thriller type, but I'm currently trying out the romance package from audible and this was in my recommendations. Well Audible... you know me well, because this book was right up my alley! One thing that's very important to me in a book is a likeable main character. I personally love strong, smart female main characters and Jess is just that. The Male lead is... typical but that's okay I guess his personality would be "swoon worthy" to most women. I also like a love triangle and unfortunately this book is missing that. But I can live without it because this book has so what sooo many romance books is missing which is action, action, action! The main characters aren't just laying around having sex all day and getting into pretty arguments. There's an actual storyline and purpose (sealing the tear) which I love. Hats off to the author, I can't wait to read book 2.

This is story seemed to pull me in..

I was presently surprised.... this plot was different and intriguing. I enjoy books that use concepts in the Bible and explore ways humans can overcome destruction..
Characters seem to be complicated but strong.... whiny h/H annoy me. Going to be interesting to see what comes of this series

Loved it!

I started this Watcher series with this book, I would suggest finding the initial Watcher trilogy and starting there. Once you get into the characters, you’ll get hooked on discovering what is next. I would highly recommend having book two ready when your finished with book one. Quite the cliffhanger....

Not going to bother finishing it

I keep trying to convince myself to pick this back up. I like the plot, but the main characters annoy me. Stop whining and pining long enough to focus on the story line!
From the view point of either character at different times in the book: The world as we know it may be ending, but the thing I really care about is if he/she likes me as I constantly check my phone for juvenile texts.
I gave it 2 stars because the world created and the plot really do have promise. If you don't mind pre-teen type angst this is probably a great book.

LOVE!

I Love S.J. West!. I have read all 3 series of watcher books multiple times. I usually don’t like reading (or listening) to books over and over but even though I know what is going to happen I still enjoy her books every time I read them! I highly recommend these books and have even got my 16 yr old started on them..
