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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Author: Willow Winters
Here are a few things I knew as I went in this book:
1- Jules and Mason's relationship was explosif to say the least
2- Jules was a broken woman after the death of her husband
3- Mason is hiding the biggest secret from Jules, one that will rock her to her core
4- Mason's father is a first class a$$hat (and I'm putting it mildly)
5- Imperfect ended in quite the cliffhanger that gave me one heck of a book hangover
To say that you need to have read the first instalment in this duet before diving into Unforgiven is an understatement. You SHOULD have read it beforehand, especially if you want to understand exactly where this book starts off since there's no time difference from the end of one and the start of the other. Willow Winters delivers another unforgettable story with the conclusion of Jules and Mason's story.
I was captivated. Stuck in my seat until I'm done, forget the world around me and ignore that I'm an adult, captivated me. I HAD to find out exactly who knows what Mason did. I HAD to know what Jules and Mason's story and how their relationship would end up. Finally, I find out who and what Mason's father's job actually is! Who would have thought that his day job was that (and no, I really don't want to spoil the Reveal on that one) , and it makes sense on how he managed to get away with so much! There was so much suspense, intrigue and mystery and I couldn't get enough of this couple. I absolutely love Willow Winters' novels and can't wait to get to read more from her in the future!
