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 Evan and Kat split up, Kat is more confused than ever. She doesn’t hear from Evan forever and she wonders if it’s time to just move on. Meanwhile, Evan hates letting Kat go but he feels he must to keep her safe. While Evan tries to prove who is behind the death that happened on his job, will the two grow even further apart? Or will Evan find that he needs Kat at his side to survive this danger together?

“It’s too many lies to know what the truth is. Too many secrets to hold on to what’s real.

I’m just afraid of losing everything. It’s like it’s all crumbling around me and I can’t stop it.”

I really didn’t know how this story was going to go. Poor Kat and the angst and the torment of it all. Evan legitimately believes he’ll put her in danger if someone realizes they are together but dammit….the man drives me insane. Thank the lord for Mason. That man…you thought Evan was a fixer…Mason, he’s a pro. This book is an emotional roller coaster and I found myself riding high and then plummeting down when the next time something would come to light and the secrets lingered. It definitely kept me on the edge wondering how it was all going to work out. Sometimes someone has to think outside the box and the solution just pops up for everyone to see and say…oh! Nice way to tease us with the next friend’s story as well.

This duet is for anyone that loves a good ol’ angsty romance. Just when I thought Kat was going to end up in the looney bin from guessing what was going on with Evan, things finally settled down. I was probably going to need the room next door to Kat if it went on much longer!

Excerpt

Evan
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!
