BLOG TOUR: Watch Over Me by Tara Sivec

Addison Snow is your typical teenager. She has a family that loves her, friends that make her laugh, and she's wrapped up in the excitement of graduating high school and going off to college to pursue her dream of becoming an author. When her mother, who also happens to be Addison's best friend, dies unexpectedly, her world comes to a crashing halt.

Death changes everyone...

To make the pain go away, Addison and her father travel down separate, dark paths. She chooses to end her grief forever, while he drowns his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. How do you learn to live again when the most important person in your life is gone?

Addison struggles to pick up the pieces of her life. Instead of getting back to being the carefree teenager she once was, she's stuck handling all of the responsibilities that should have been her father's. She has no time to grieve, no time for emotions, and no time for happiness...until Zander Reinhardt walks in. All it takes is one little handwritten note on a napkin to kick­start her back to life and help her realize that maybe there's more to that life than pain.

But can it really be that simple? Can she really trust this man who makes her feel alive again for the first time in a year? 

Addison and Zander both have secrets they aren't ready to share. When the truth finally comes out, is it enough to tear them apart or has something bigger than themselves always been watching over them, pushing them together, making sure they both get their happily ever after?

Where to buy?


I am just speechless.  This story hit me on so many levels I just don't know where to start.  I  have just finished reading it and I HAD to start writing this review, even though I don't know what I could possibly say other than you need to experience this.  Not soon, not tomorrow, not even later, you need to go purchase this and immediately begin this journey.  This is truly more than just a book or a story.  I felt like Tara Sivec has shared something extraordinarily intimate with her readers.  I'm not even sure I can label the emotions I'm feeling right now after reading this.  I can't tell if I'm completely destroyed or totally empowered.

Watch Over Me touched on a few topics that are very close to my heart.  As I get older I've come to realize that so is my mother.  She is my best friend, just like Addision's mom was her best friend.  I literally spend hours on the phone with her  every day and cannot imagine what life will be like when she is gone.  Because of this, I felt like I was experiencing Addison's loss right along with her, and it was horrible!  Thankfully, it was also therapeutic and reminded me to never take a moment of time I have with my mom, or anyone, for granted.

As a teenager/young adult I suffered from rather severe depression.  Years of therapy, medication and the support of my friends and family left me loving myself and my life.  Addison, however, only has herself to rely on to get through her depression over the loss of her mother and the overwhelming responsibility her father's downward spiral gives her.  When Zander enters Addison's life he helps her to remember what it is to be young and happy again. Zander is really an amazing guy, I could go on and on about him, but I won't because you have to experience his LEGO genius for yourself!

Tara Sivec has really outdone herself this time.  She has proven that she is a versatile writer and can be successful within multiple genres.  Watch Over Me is by far her best book to date and I cannot wait to see what she will come out with next!
