Feel Me by Cecy Robson Blog Tour

RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Feel Me, Declan, the sexy, driven powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm...

Declan O’Brien was always driven to take his place among Philly’s elite, working hard for everything he’s earned, including the title of Assistant District Attorney. He’s won seemingly impossible cases, so he’s furious when he’s assigned to lead the one unit he doesn’t want.

Melissa Fenske was born hearing impaired to a neglectful mother, finding solace when she was adopted by a young attorney, now Declan’s boss. As the current Director of Victim Services, Melissa’s livid when Declan is placed in the main unit she oversees. She can’t forget their disastrous first encounter. Or shake how he makes her feel.

Declan considers the assignment another step toward his political aspirations, despite that he can’t get Melissa out of his mind. Melissa sees Declan as egotistical and self-serving, kicking herself for how fast she’s falling for his charm. Someone as hot, smooth, and perfect as Declan isn’t supposed to want her.

In another situation with any other woman, Declan wouldn’t hesitate to take Melissa to bed. But she is the boss’s daughter, and for once, Declan finds himself wanting more than just a one night stand.

Neither counted on each other. Both just met their match.

My hands fall to my lap. “I suppose now is a good time to tell you what I’m looking for,” I say quietly.

“What you’re looking for?” he asks.

I tilt my chin, wondering why he seems confused. “Well, yes. I have certain needs that I’m hoping you’ll help me with.”

His grip to his pen tightens. “Needs? For yourself?”

“For my unit,” I clarify. I wish like his brother, Declan also understood American Sign Language. Then I could sign and not give away how nervous I sometimes feel around him. I roll my ankle, trying to shake off some of my anxiety. For all he drives me crazy, he’s doing a hell of a job making me feel self-conscious. That doesn’t mean I’ll cower or stay quiet. “It’s my understanding that the assistant D.A.s currently assigned to SACU are burnt out and requesting reassignment.”

“That’s right,” he says, his expression sour. “Just a few hours on the job and I’ve already received transfer requests in writing.”

“I’d like to help select their replacements.”

“Excuse me?” he asks.

Okay, here we go. Boob appreciation hour is officially over. “I’m not trying to step on your toes.”

“But?” he asks, leaning back against his chair.

“But nothing. I respect that the decision is ultimately yours. I’m only asking for the opportunity to provide input.” He keeps his expression neutral, and I can’t be sure he’s listening. I force myself to continue. “There have been a few new hires, and a few D.A.s looking to be challenged. I’d like to observe them in court and see how they perform on their feet. More importantly, I want to observe how they interact with victims of the more violent crimes.”

Declan appears anything but pleased. Either I’ve pissed him off or I’ve pushed him into something he’s not ready for. “I’m going to lay it right out for you,” he says, his tone matter-of fact. “SACU is the unit attorneys least want. I’m surprised the A.D.A.s currently there have lasted as long as they have.”

All right. I did annoy him. “They’ve lasted because it takes a while to become acclimated,” I counter. “But once there, they realize their importance and how much the victims and their families depend on them to help them through the process.”

“I’m not saying the work or the victims aren’t important. What I’m saying is no one is exactly begging to work there.”

“I realize SACU is the last place our attorneys want to be placed,” I say, staring straight at him. “Especially those who enter this office strictly to make connections and jump start their political careers. But it’s one of the most important units because of the sensitive subject matter and the degree of violence we see.”

I don’t mean to be so blunt, and maybe he doesn’t either, but here we sit with our gazes locked and the tension between us escalating.

Damn it. Dad wants us to work as a team. But the more we speak, the more I’m reminded Declan doesn’t want to be a part of this unit, and nowhere near me.

I inadvertently trail my fingers above the collar of my dress, it’s a nervous habit, much like when women tuck a strand of their hair behind their ear. But I never tuck my hair with my hearing aids in place. Any sound that brushes too close to the receiver such as the movement of hair, putting on a hat, resting my head against a pillow, even an intimate whisper, creates back noise similar to nails on a chalkboard.

My fingertips stroke close to the swell of my right breast as I think our situation through. I freeze when I realize Declan’s stare is following each subtle movement.

This is too weird. No way can Declan O’Brien be eyeing me like he wants to take a lick.

I ran into him at a restaurant a few weeks back. I was picking up takeout following a five mile run, still wearing the shorts and sports bra I ran in. Of course I had to see him. And of course he had to look good... and so did the blonde on his arm. She was a total stick and all legs, wearing a dress I don’t think I could have shoved my left breast into. I’m so not his type. So then why...

“I’ll allow the input,” he says.

“I’m sorry?”

“I’ll allow the input,” he says, a little louder.

This time I don’t correct him. I didn’t hear him, too busy watching him watch me which is absolutely ridiculous―ludicrous even―and good God, why does he have to look so good in that damn suit!

“Thank you,” I say, tripping over the word.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Declan O'Brien is asked to take over the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit and become acting District Attorney while District Attorney Miles Fenske deals with a recurrence of cancer. This means working closely with Miles’ adopted daughter, Melissa, who is hearing impaired. Declan isn't one to believe in love, given what he grew up with. Yes, his brothers and sisters found their happily ever afters, but Declan doesn't believe it's in his cards.

Declan has to work closely with Melissa on a series of cases, apparently, he can't help making a fool of himself in front of her. Melissa watches woman fawn all over Declan, she's just never been that type of woman. Their feelings for each other start to blossom and before they can stop it, they are acting on that attraction.

I found it interesting learning about Melissa's impairment and how it affected her. The chemistry between Declan and Melissa is super hot. I can't wait to read more in this series!

Cecy Robson has become one of my go-to authors for a great read that will suck you in from the very first page. The O’Brien boys are hot as sin and I’ve enjoyed each of the stories more than the last – Declan’s story being my favorite so far!

Declan O’Brien is the newly appointed ADA and has been given this position by Melissa Fenske’s father… the woman who he can never seem to keep from embarrassing himself in front of. Melissa doesn’t much care for Declan, believing he’s arrogant, rude, and a manwhore. Especially since Declan isn’t as appreciative as Melissa believes he should be in his newly appointed position as he actually wants the position of DA for Homicide, not SACU where he’s been put. Melissa and Declan work very closely together at the SACU offices and the close quarters are causing things to really heat up. Declan has always had a thing for Melissa, but Melissa isn’t one to give in easily and makes Declan really work for it…

Melissa might have been one of my favorite heroines in a long while, she’s overcome her hearing disability to have an incredible career, a fierce attitude, and a huge heart. I love that though I believe this book can be read as a standalone, we get huge chunks of the other O’Brien boys and their women from previous books – it really connected well together. I love this series and can’t wait to read more!

This is the fourth in the series, and I would definitely recommend that you read them in order. As each O'Brien sibling falls in love, we get to understand more about this close knit yet complex family. Declan has, to date, been the most resistant to even the idea that love is real, so inevitably his fall is so much harder for him to deal with at all.

Told from both Declan and Melissa's viewpoints, we get to see how these two function, and how even when they finally acknowledge their feelings for each other, there are plenty of obstacles in the way. I may have wanted to slap him a few times... but luckily his sister and brothers' significant others all give him a few pointers as to how badly he is messing up. It was refreshing to see a woman with a hearing impairment in a successful career, and to appreciate better how tough life must be when in that role within the legal system.

Miles, Melissa's father, deserves a special mention for being a special man – and when he tells Melissa about his time with Mae, he is the ultimate cool Dad!

The only problem with this book ending was that I would very much like the next one already – so I do hope you are busy weaving your magic, Ms. Robson.
