Mission: Irresistible

Super spy Mykola Chernichenko comes from a family of geniuses, and though he’s no idiot himself, he’d rather be where the action is than analyze it to death. That’s why his vacation has just been cut short by a call to get two of his siblings out of some serious trouble—while protecting a nerdy scientist who’s latest project could change the world...and get her killed.

The guy who’d rather act than think guarding an egghead in a lab coat? Myk would appreciate the irony more if he weren’t so busy trying to figure out how, exactly, to get under said lab coat. Because Lana Ericson just happens to be the hottest thing working the scientific method since, well, ever. Myk has a feeling Lana’s laser-like focus would translate to something equally intense in the bedroom. And if she’s as curious about him, Myk might just be willing to donate his body to science—each and every night...

She’s not exactly model material, but she’s got a heart of gold. He’s not exactly ready to walk away from his job, but he’s a sucker for her quirks. What happens when they have to work side by side? Read Watch Over Me and find out.

Ms. Monroe continues her Goddard Project series with this next installment, Watch Over Me. In this one we meet Myk, the agent who wants to protect the world. You feel like you’re really in their world and going through the situations with them. When you can’t forget the characters, that’s fun writing.

Myk makes a great alpha hero because he’s an act first, think second type of guy. He’s happy being the brawn of the operation. I liked that he was attracted to the woman whom the reader can identify with – a normal woman. I liked that her normalcy was what drew him.

Lana was an interesting choice for the heroine because she was so average. She’s not a rail and she’s not bubble-headed. Too many heroines are gutsy but have that foolish attitude from time to time. Lana still had a childlike respect for magic and wonder. She cared about everyone, even those not yet created. I liked her Disney d├ęcor. We each have our quirks and its fun to find that one person who understands and accepts us for who we are.

Although I thought the love scenes could’ve been a bit hotter, each couple has their ways to be together and make love (not the act, but the emotion involved). Myk and Lana’s love scenes suited them and that made it hot for me.

If you want a fun book filled with unique characters you’ll remember long after the end of the book, then you need to read Watch Over Me.
