Meagan is just trying to get her dream off the ground and give the viewing audience a chance to see dancers at work She used to dance until an injury pulled her from it but has made the best of things to become a producer who has sold the network on a dance competition show She s driven to make it succeed even with wht appears to be a curse operating on set We first meet her when she is forced out of the house they are staying in by a fire alarm complete with sprinklers While trying to turn them off she runs in to Sam in the basement and all sorts of sparks fly.Sam is the studio security head He s a great guy who just wants things to succeed and finds himself drawn to Meagan even though all they do is fight He s got items in his past that drive him but once he decides she is what he wants he does what he can to help her trust him.There is a lot of drama around the show but all in all it was a nice story with two people finally finding the one that completes them without taking them over I am going to have to pick up the others in this series as they come out.Thanks to NetGalley.com and Harlequin Blaze for the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review. Meagan Tippan is a producer that is trying to make twelve young dancers dreams come true with a reality TV show But there are rumors of a curse when sets are sabotaged and their living quarters end up flooded If Meagan can t turn things around and quickly the dancers dreams aren t the only dreams that won t be coming true but Meagan s dream of the TV show being a hit won t happen either Sam Kellar is a former Special Forces and now head of security While it is his job to make sure the security for the show and dancers are covered he is also proving to be a pain in Meagan s butt As Sam and Meagan work together on the show the tensions between them continue to heat up and it is soon becoming clear that their only choices is to either get everything out between them so that they can take it all off.Meagan knows Sam is hot but he is also an alpha male that she has a tendency to steer clear of but for some reason when it comes to Sam she is inclined to head his way rather than away from him Sam enjoys the challenge Meagan presents him as she keeps him on his toes but he knows another way for them to work out what is between them he just has to convince Meagan to see things his way.This story is a fun take on the reality TV craze The characters are interesting and will draw readers into the story and keep them hooked And with this being a Harlequin readers are guaranteed an HEA The story also gives the readers a small peek into the behind the scenes of what can happen on a reality TV show This one will have readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the Step Up books.

picky on what I do read This was one I could not pass on.Lisa Renee Jones has quickly become one of my go to authors and so I knew I was in for a good read, and she did not dissapoint Reading this book was as if I was watching one of the one too many reality shows currently out there Except Watch Me is focused on dancing for a dream There was a bit of intrigue, steam, a hot hero, a feisty heroine, a curse , and fights between the contestants Really, it was just like a reality show There was quite a bit of sensual tension at the beginning of the book between Sam, the hero, and Meagan, the heroine however, it kind of died down a little as the story progressed It was still good regardless Overall, for anyone who likes reality TV shows and looking for a quick fun read, this would be a good book to check Blurb Twelve young dancers are competing for the dream Only one will win But with sabotaged sets and flooded living quarters, the Curse threatens both competitors and crew And unless she can turn this train wreck into a TV triumph, producer Meagan Tippan s dream will be the Curse s last victim.Enter security head and former Special Forces soldier and all around pain in Meagan s butt Sam Kellar He s a nightmare and the stuff that X rated dreams are made of But as tensions between Meagan and Sam become increasingly explosive, their only choice is to get it all out and take it all off 3.5 stars Me is the typical Blaze book hot, fun, sexy and predictable But that doesn t stop me from enjoying it I love all things Blaze I usually buy all my Blaze, but while browsing Net Galley I saw a new one from Ms Jones and had to have it, like, now I loved her book If I Were You and cannot wait until the squeal I m a sucker for reality TV as well, and although I never got into Dancing with the Stars or You Think You Can Dance, one of my favourite movies is Center Stage so I do enjoy things that center around dance Meagan Tippan is an ex ballerina, turned news producer turned reality show producer She s your typical heroine smart, beautiful, successful I like strong female leads in the books that I read and Meagan fit that She liked being in control, was good at it, and didn t take shit from anyone My kind of woman Sam Kellar is a former Special Forces hello uniform, definitely my kind of man turned head of security for Meagan s show He s also your typical hero sexy, smart, successful, and damaged In Sam s case his damage is physical rather than emotional No surprise, Sam also likes to be in control and is very good at it as well Put two stubborn, control freak leads together and what do you get Sexual tension so thick it s liable to suffocate you The plot isn t very original, but like I said earlier, that won t stop any Blaze fan from enjoying it It s well written and Ms Jones is a great storyteller, she knows how to give her readers what they want.

Watch Me by Lisa Renee Jones Stepping Up SeriesMeagan Tippan is than just the producer of a reality dance show, America s Stepping Up It s her baby and the last chance to prove to everyone, including herself, that she has what it takes and is worth the risk One that proved even riskier since the series of mishaps began on set causing rumors to swell and consume the entire cast and crew as well as the media who had glammed on to the news.Samuel Kellar, head of security, knew Meagan was the kind of woman who could hold her own in almost any situation but things were quickly getting out of hand with the accidents and it was his job to get involved and flush out who or what was behind them Even if it meant getting closer to Meg than he had expected Call it a bonus.Meagan had a passion for dancing that an injury put on permanent hold but nothing compared to the one which forced Sam to resign from his Special Forces position She needed to focus on that passion and this project Not failing And not getting involved with the sexy as sin head of security The studio was promoting the curse as a paranormal threat against the show but the danger is real and the danger of falling in love is even so for Meagan when Sam steps in to flush out the real threat A threat to the show, to Meagan and to her very real connection to Sam s heart.Lisa Renee Jones is the Queen of taking every day reality fiction and creating captivating romantic escapes for her readers With her spin on Storage Wars as part of the base for If I Were You she created an erotic world of intrigue and emotional revelations for her characters In Watch Me, a spin off a reality dance show is the basis for a suspenseful romantic read that kept me entertained from cover to cover Sam and Meagan were both intriguing and sexy as hell as they finally give in to the instant chemistry that they had been denying for a while and let it lead them into both a relationship and a passionate love that they both shared I loved their banter and deliciously passionate and arousing path they take in finding out the truth about who is out to stop them from sharing a future together and making the show the success they both want it to be.
