A #sinsandsecrets Series Novel
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 5, 2017


She made me a better man, but I still wasn’t good enough to keep her.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, with sleeve tattoos, ripped muscle and a cold-hearted stare, I am who I am.  The bad boy she knew to stay away from.
I knew we were never supposed to last.  But the way her lips tasted, the way her curves felt under my hands…  I couldn’t let go. I did everything I could to keep her.
I put on a ring on her finger and straightened out my life.  All for her.
I should’ve known better.
One mistake tore us apart and I don’t know what I can do to salvage what we once had.
I knew it wasn’t supposed to last, but if I could make her stay with me once...  I can do it again.
Watch me. I love my sweetheart; I’m not losing her again.

After the ending of Damaged left me with so many questions I couldn’t wait to get started with this book. 

So we know that Kat and Evan’s marriage is in serious trouble but what had he done to put such strain on their relationship. 

Evan although with the best of intentions completely alienated his wife at times so much so that I wanted to slap him silly at times. I really wanted Kat to show more of a backbone at times and not give into him so easily.

This was a story that kept me engaged throughout, it kept me guessing trying to negotiate my way through the clues and red herrings. It’s been quite a ride over the space of the two books.

The haunting poetry in these books makes it so hard not to become emotionally invested. (I totally was.)

Evan and Kat break before our very eyes and all we can do is hold on. Hold on to hope, hold on to love, and hold on to our hopelessly romantic hearts. It isn't easy.

So many things happen that will lead you astray. You will fight it. You will justify it. You will deny. But in the end, you will be content. Evan and Kat need this. Whether it's make or break, they need this time.

It hurts. Their hearts, my heart, and according to Willow Winters, her heart too. "You're the reason my heart is scarred." Powerful words that evoke so many different emotions. This book is almost like a room of fun house mirrors. Not in a weird and creepy way, but in the sense that there are so many ways of looking at something and never quite seeing it all. So many ways to feel a certain line out of context but in context it evokes a more substantial feeling. I'm not sure you are still reading this because most people think I am cuckoo but sometimes a book's "feels" speak to us more than the words.

As a reader, we judge books. We decide how we feel about them. But when books make us their puppets...those are my favorites. I love when the book leads you around and makes you follow their directions. Willow Winters is definitely my puppet master today.

Damn me for what I’ve done,
Hate me for the lie.
Let the web weave and thread,
But don’t let what we have die.

I know it in my blood,
She’s mine to keep and hold.
I’ll stop fighting only once,
When I’m dead and cold.

The piles of dirt are getting larger. The metal shovels pierce the frozen soil. The sound cuts through my bones, one and then another and another.
It’s been constant as I stand here, helpless. I’ve never been colder, the wind and bitter snow beseiging my body, but I still don’t move.
I can’t take my eyes from the two graves.
The shovels spill the dirt, the piles mounting as my eyes drift to the tombstones.
The first my father, a man who died before his time. A death of tragedy.
And then to my wife’s. My love’s. Gone before her time. No one believes me. He put her there. James killed her.
My eyes pop open wide when I hear Kat whisper, “It’s all your fault.”

I wake up breathless, my heart pounding and I swear I can feel Kat’s hot breath on my neck even though I’m alone. My eyes dart around the room as I slowly lift my body into a sitting position on the bed.
Just a terror. The same as last night.
I’m quick to grab the video monitor for the security system from the nightstand and flick the button on to bring it to life. I had it installed after the break-in.
It’s only when I see Kat in our bed, that my heart starts to calm, and my heated skin seems to succumb to the chill of reality.
She’s okay.
I close my eyes and when I open them, it’s an image of her rolling over in bed. To my side. My fingers brush the glass where she is. I’ll be there soon. I’ll be with her and it’ll all be over. I won’t let her down.

Author Bio

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!

Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
