It began as a ruse. Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on. Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell. I found her. My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy. I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things. Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us. In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless. I may very well lose the only woman I've ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming. *warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.
It was a deal. A contract. No muss, no fuss, no feelings and $250,000. It should have been easy. It was all a facade. Until what was Lost In Between became Found Underneath...
"She’s color, she’s sun, she’s rain, she’s earth, she’s breath, she’s warmth , she’s salt, she’s sweet. She’s life. She’s..."
But what will become of this "thing" when the past comes to light? How will two closed off individuals share enough to become one...or is their fate more like the crumbling house of cards?
I honestly put off reading this arc until the last minute possible. I was afraid of answers and afraid of the questions. I fell so deeply in love with Shaw and Willow that I didn't want to entertain the idea of anything else. So as much as I needed to know, I fought it.
I can safely say that I could have read it sooner but I still would have cried. I still would have shaken my fist. And I won't promise that I won't show up at KL Krieg's house to demand more. Yay be satisfied and content but I will always want more...
Perhaps Noah's story...Bluebell'sOr a certain snippy hard @ss best friend...
If like me you were afraid, know this...Sometimes it's better to get all the facts than to wildly guess the answers. Just ask Willow.You have nothing to fear except fear itself....Okay, that's bull but this story's conclusion is nothing to fear. It honestly could not have gone another way. (Seriously,KL Kreig is never wrong...)
To recap, I loved it. I hurt. I cried. I denied. But in the end, I need to.....
Wait I can't tell you that! Then you'll get the wrong impression. Read it. Get the facts. Figure out what team you are on and how far you will fight for it!
I was really looking forward to this book after finishing book 1 I was excited to see what would happen when the pretence is over. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Willow and Shaw, the banter combined with the sexual tension was a winning combination. I still enjoyed the story but found this one harder to get into in part because the first half was for me a little lacking but it was what I would class as a slow burner and when the action picked up I was hooked. There is still a lot to be resolved with their story and the are plenty of twists and turns to keep you invested. Shaw really came good for me in this one, ironically he was the one not willing to give up, the one who was secure in his feelings for Willow and she was not which made me want to smack her a few times. This was a good second book that was fast paced and full of emotion.
With reverence, he peels the fluffy garment from my body and lets it fall to the floor, leaving me bare and exposed, craving his next touch, his next word. “In them, I saw absolutely nothing.” My nipples bead when he runs my lobe through his teeth and breathes, “But in you, Willow, I see a blank page I want to fill with color and memories, light and laughter. I want to pack page after page with the story of our life, and I’ve never wanted that before.” My eyes well up and goose bumps blanket me. Shaw Mercer weakens every part of me but strengthens me in equal measure.

Lost in Between
As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption. Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
