Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new shopping centre. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera.
Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s behaving like a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch.
Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide an explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to the real-life chance of romance?

This book was ok. I honestly thought that it would have been a little better than it was but all and ok it was interesting read.
Ken works behind a CCTV keeping an eye on the upscale shopping and restaurant area. It is not a very exciting job or at least it was not one until recently. Now Ken is second guessing his thoughts about it not being a good job because it seems he has an exhibitionist on his hands with a waiter from one of the restaurant me that he is in charge of keeping an eye on.
The only problem is the waiter seems to not want Ken to see his face or again at least not until the waiter is ready to reveal who is to Ken.
When the reveal comes Ken find himself second guessing th reasoning behind keeping their identity quite. So this was an unexpected blow to what could have been the start of a great relationship. Now Ken is not so sure since the person in question is not only someone he knew but also Ken wonders if this was all just some sort of game or laugh at Ken’s experience.
This was a good read but I was really hoping for a little more. Not sure exactly what that more could have been but there was definitely something missing in my opinion. Even still it was a good read.
