Release Day Blitz - Unforgiven by Willow Winters

The sins of his past can’t be forgiven.

Mason Thatcher gave me chills when I first laid eyes on him. The good kind. The kind that makes your body ache and your heart hammer.

What’s better is that he looked at me the same way.
There was a hunger in his eyes that wouldn’t be sated, and a confidence in his stride that told me I could never run from him. Back then, I didn’t want to.

It’s not fair that his touch eased my pain.
That his lips on mine made my worries vanish.
That his love gave me a reason to breathe again.

With him, I felt complete, as if fate had given me a second chance.

Then I learned the truth: the sins and secrets of what really brought us together.

I knew it was too good to be true, but I could never have imagined he’d be capable of something so cold and cruel. That he was the reason my world crumbled.

There’s no way we can go back to what we once had and it’s not as easy as walking away. He can’t risk me telling his secrets.

I don’t know what choices I have or how I’ll survive this.

What he’s done is unforgivable, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to let me go.

Unforgiven is the second book in the new series, Sins and Secret Series of Duets by Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author Willow Winters. It is book 2 of a 2 book duet although other standalone duets will be featured in the series. It is not necessary, but highly recommended that you read book 1, Imperfect, before reading Unforgiven.

   They say if you love someone, you should let them go.
   That’s bullshit.
   I didn’t know it until I lost her, but I had nothing to live for without Jules.        
   There’s no fucking way I’m going back to that.
    The idea that she could turn me in has hardly even registered. It’s merely a passing thought that intrudes upon the images of seeing her walk away from me. The memories of her pushing against my chest, scratching and violently kicking me. Her screams that she hates me ring in my ears over and over.
    I swallow thickly as I descend the stairs, gripping the railing and matching the heavy thud of my bare feet with the pounding of my heart.
   I need to figure out how to make her forget the past and remember her future is with me. My head nods, envisioning how this was supposed to be. How it could have ended so beautifully.

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!

********MY REVIEW********

This is the conclusion to Imperfect, which is a duet in the Sins and Secrets series.  You have to read book 1 to understand book 2.
Mason Thatcher will do everything to get Julia back, to get her to stay with him. Since becoming aware of what Mason has done, things are unraveling fast and now Julia is now a prisoner in the home she shared with Mason. She suffers from a range of emotions- the biggest are anger, confusion and yet love.  All these emotions are driving her a bit batty. Mason himself is going slightly mad himself – with all that has gone on, he doesn’t want to lose Julia. He loves her deeply and madly. He doesn’t want to own up that the lies and deception he was forced to engage in could push her away for good. He isn’t about to lose her and he will do anything to win her back after his lies and deception have come to light. The thing is, will his sins outweigh his love and total devotion? That’s the true question perhaps.
I couldn’t put this book down and I  wavered back and forth yelling at both major characters. There is some major twists and turns in this book that kept me on the edge up until the very end. You don’t want to rush the telling/reading of this book for you will miss that sudden twist. I swear I felt like I was literally right there with Mason and Julia during this story living out their bittersweet love story.  I have to say, Im so glad I don’t have to make these decisions that they did for Im sure I would fail. Mason and Julia have a complex and unique love story that is full of Secrets and lies, angst, sadness, steamy and erotic love and yet at the same time deep intense love. So many emotions, so many feelings. You don’t want to miss this love story.

My Rating:  4.8 stars *****
