Blurb: When a drug lord risks exposing all shifters, Manuel, a Watcher, knows he has to step in to stop him.
Manuel doesn’t much care about what humans do to each other, but when a shifter drug lord risks exposing all of them, he knows he has to step in. While trying to find the man’s weaknesses, Manuel runs across Sydney, the drug lord’s son.
Sydney has always lived under his father’s control. He’s seen too much, and he only wants a chance to have his own life. It isn’t what his father wants for him at all, though, and Sydney has been looking for a way out.
Their attraction is instant, but before they can make sense of the pull between them, Sydney’s home is attacked by a rival drug lord. Sydney is taken and Manuel will need the help of the other Watchers to mount a rescue operation.

Review: Each book in the Watcher’s collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Manuel is trying to take out a drug lord who is using shifters. He needs the man’s weakness, but when he finds out the man has a son things get more interesting. Sydney is his mate.
I have read the stories these two authors have out together, and I have to admit that they do have away about them. There is so much promise in them but unfortunately the follow through is not so hot. They start out pretty damn good but then they just seem to fizzle out.
I was hoping that as time went by the books would get better but so far they are coming off pretty much the same. The same problems that is. They just come off very rushed and not fully developed.
I was a bit disappointed in this story but am holding out for the next one.
