I loved this romance. It is perhaps my favorite Kleypas novel, the chemistry is perfect between the two characters. Their physical differences (he is quite tall and she is petite) is humorous and sexy. They share a powerful attraction that is hot and I loved reading every minute of this book. I re read it often, Kleypas created a flawless romance with this one. A great read for women who enjoy masculine, assertive and strong men.

I read a lot of others books from Lisa Kleypas, but I was a little disapoint with this. I think the romance was a little slow and the suspense and the policial plot over came the romance.

I initially purchased this novel two months ago, before my mind was tightly wrapped within the whirlwind of the Wallflower & Hathaway Series. Every time I completed a book within those series, I would constantly glance and push aside this novel. And, still purhcase other Lisa Kleypas novels in the process. What an enormous mistake on my part. This novel has suited my needs completely. Having to deal with my own sibling frustrations within the past few months. This novel has opened my eyes regarding the behavior and characteristics of my sister and I possess. How devastatingly different we are, just as the main characters within this book. However the revelation of the fact, she and I can find true happiness with whatever we decide to do with our future; regardless, if one doesn't agree with the other. Thanks to Lisa Kleypas I have found immense comfort with this novel. As usual I'm infatuated with every single novel written by Lisa Kleypas, I've read thus far. I'm extremely eager to continue with this series, and read the other novels by LK. Mrs. Kleypas is a distinguished, remarkable, talented, superlative novelist of all time, and one of my most favorite authors. UNDOUBTEDLY ALWAYS DESERVING A 5 & WELL BEYOND STAR RATING!!!

Many good friends recommended this book to me, and I finally gave in. I admit that I was a -little- disappointed but it was by no means awful. Grant Morgan and Victoria/Vivien Duvall are endearing characters but there were times in the book where it seemed to drag on forever. Like someone mentioned, the story line isn't all that original. However, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another Kleypas novel since she seems to be a talented writer.

¿Someone To Watch over Me¿ was a good book. I wouldn¿t rate it great and I wouldn¿t rate it bad. The reason I couldn¿t give it more stars¿.I didn¿t really buy throughout most of the story that ¿Viven¿ was who she said she was. It seemed apparent to anyone paying attention that clearly the person everyone THOUGHT was Viven couldn¿t possibly be. Even though she lost her memory after almost being killed and pulled from the river half dead¿she had none of the characteristics that everyone said she had before (was a high priced, well known prostitute, ½ the men in town had slept with her at one time, all the women hated her, she was cold blooded, devious, out for her own good and she was a seriously twisted sex style maniac). Suddenly¿Viven looses her memory after the water trauma and acts sweet, tender, kind, naïve, appalled by sex and virgin like. Why it was like she was another person! Because¿she was!!! I couldn¿t buy that all these Bow Street Runners were such great security and detectives in town ¿ often working for the crown - yet¿they couldn¿t do a little research on the real Viven and look at her history, family, where she grew up etc. and find out there was TWO children ¿ twins ¿ and thus, that is why the girls were so vastly different from one another. The characters of Grant and Victoria ¿ they seemed a lot like many other characters that Lisa Kleypas has written about in previous books. Our hero has a hard luck history ¿ often from the streets ¿ clawed his way out of a bad past to find a career to prosper, make money, get some power but, he is always alone and on the fringes of high society. In turn, our heroine Victoria is a sweet natured, thoughtful and kind girl on the verge of womanhood who finds herself in a dangerous situation and she puts herself in the hands of the hero for safe keeping. Thus¿their attraction and love build. Nice but, nothing new. Nothing fresh. I just feel like ¿I¿ve been there before¿ when I finished this newest book. I felt that Victoria forgave Grant a bit early for his revenge plot and deception to her. She was rightly mad at first and wanted some space but, it didn¿t take long for her to forgive him and take him back for his bad ways. In turn, everyone seemed to go easy on Viven in the end for all the trouble and difficulty she caused with her actions and behavior. These two things could have been played out a bit more for my taste. LK is a really good author for the most part. Pick her up if you haven't yet. She almost never disappoints. Some books are more memorable than others but, all will entertain.

Predictable story. I knew what would happen and who the bad guy was before I read it in the story line... takes the mystery out of the story. I did enjoy the book.

I have read this twice now. I still thinks it's a decent story. If you like to read strictly about an aristocratic relationship, this probably isn't for you. Two commoners, albeit one well placed in society, but not of the people of the ton.

I really loved the suspense. I liked the fact that the story unwound slowly. It gave time for the character development to unfold smoothly.
