He was a boy I should be afraid of and definitely a boy I should never want. No matter how much neither of those statements was true.
From the first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place. And, years later, it hasn’t softened.
We lived on the same street, went to the same school, though he was a year ahead. Even so close, he was untouchable.
He was bad news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.
One night changed everything.
We both had secrets. We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes.
That gaze that gave me chills, turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of me.
But that didn’t change who he was. A man who would take everything from me.

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!
That being said, it wasn’t a bad book either. Like I mentioned the writing was excellent. This author is fantastic at writing emotional stories that grip the reader right from the start, and this book was steeped in emotion and pain. It is a relatively short book, so the pace was quite quick. There wasn’t any OW or OM drama. The hero wasn’t a manwhore. The heroine (unfortunately) was a virgin. We get a couple of good sex scenes. The secondary characters (mainly Carter) were interesting, and the two main characters were likable for the most part.So yea, as I said above, it was a bit of an odd read. And as much as I enjoyed it, I still think it could have been much better had the author fleshed out the story more. In any case, I am still going to go ahead and recommend it. Especially if you have been reading the Merciless series as the little extra info about Carter makes a welcome addition.
