    Dark suspense

    Going into this one, I wasn't sure what I'd find. I knew what I expected, and I also knew that this author would most likely twist that into something else. I was right about that - in part. This dark, gritty read gave me a bit of both the expected and unexpected. I'll admit that I wasn't completely on board with Dean and Allison, but I couldn't really put my finger on why. Then, as the story progressed and the tension builds, it all came together wonderfully and things fell into place. I'd love to elaborate more, but any details would give spoilers and this one really needs to be read spoiler-free. Suffice it to say that Willow Winters has woven a tale that is tragic, heart-breaking, and shocking, and laced it with a bit of hope.

    Pulls you in and holds on even after the end

    "Victims aren't the ones who are supposed to be sorry." I have a sort of fascination with Willow Winters' books. She has an uncanny ability to remind me that life & romance aren't always hearts & flowers; tidy & neat. Mostly, it's messy, dirty and filled with roadblocks, even tragedy. This book is no different: angst-ridden, trigger situations, deceit, death, guilt, pain - it's all in there. Ally is guilt-ridden. Carrying the burden of a friend's tragedy, she's decided that she has to make things right. "You'll make all sorts of promises then. Promises to make wrongs right. At any cost." Her hiccup? She makes eye contact with a rugby player with anger management issues & shadows in his eyes. Dean and Ally forge a heat-filled connection almost immediately. They recognise each other's pain - and desire. Reeling from parental betrayal, they cling to each other, but Dean soon realises Ally's got a lot more than her sexual desires hidden. This book completely floored me. It made me respect Mrs. Winters' ability as a writer all over again. She handled this touchy topic with great aplomb, giving the reader plenty food for thought & consideration. I couldn't find it in me to put this book down until I was completely finished with it. It's a book that will stay with me for awhile. I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Consequences of Revenge

    When your life mission is driven from pure revenge, what happens when life throws a curveball and your once thought out plan takes another direction? Allison is set on taking down the one who changed her life forever. Once upon a time when she was free to explore the world with no worries or regrets. It's funny how one night can change it all, sending Allison's life into a tailspin. How that one night changed not only her best friend Sam's life but Allison's as well. Dean had a rough life. Losing his father was painful, but watching his mother move on so quickly was even worse. Anger, that is what fueled him day in and out. Unable to control his impulses he lashed out on anyone around him. Not feeling loved by his own mother left a gaping hole in his heart and that hole just grew larger and larger feeding the anger more and more. His only choice was to leave, leave his home and be on his own. Might as well since all his mother cared about was herself. When a girl set out for revenge meets a boy who feels unloved, their relationship is doomed from the start. Allison wasn't expecting Dean, and Dean wasn't expecting to fall so hard for Allison. As much as Allison fought her attraction to Dean, the harder she fell. He wasn't supposed to be part of the equation. She had a plan and Dean was interfering with it. Dean didn't want to let Allison in because letting her in made him vulnerable. He was already programed in believing that he couldn't be loved, so letting his guard down would only prove that true once again. But what the heart wants is what the heart gets. In the end, Allison games end up hurting the Dean the most. The one man that accepted her for who she was and loved her unconditionally. She Asked for It was heart wrenching, provocative, dark, vulnerable, dramatic and emotional. Willow Winters blew me away with this one and I get excited waiting to see what else she will come up with for her next book. Phenomenal, writing, story and author! Thank you once again Willow Winters!

    MEMORABLE STIRRING SIZZLING ROMANCE

    SHE ASKED FOR IT has a grim mystery to it so don't let the title fool you. A thought-provoking story that seized my full attention from the start; could not stop reading until the end. An unconditional love story about two people who find each other but a clouded past threatens to crush the sunlight they could have. The reality of this story pawed at my heart to empathize with Allison and Dean; misty eyed was I visualizing certain scenes as they played out and cheered in delight at the conclusion of their story too! Inside; suspense, family drama, bleeding-heart moments, action, humor, powerful vivid scene descriptions, and fiery passionate sensuous romance. Dean and Allison meet at college; Dean's come-hither looks and provocative innuendos melt Allison but she plays hard to catch which only makes him want her more. The shadows of Allison's past wreak havoc with her heart. Emotions skyrocket as Dean continues his chase to capture the woman who holds his heart. The two do get their happy ending but getting there is quite a whirlwind story. RELISHED this engrossing story and I applaud the author for writing it. Behind the blazing hot romance is quite an impressive story. I adored Allison and Dean together as they do make a perfect match. There is another character that I was also truly fond of; Daniel one of Dean's friends; as I see him as the voice of reason. The author shows that trust and honesty are pivotal in a lasting relationship. A most gratifying read; a story to be talked about and a fabulous book for a reader's library. I loved this story so much {I volunteered to review an advanced copy.} Without reservations, I recommend this read.

    Love Heals

    "Once you're shattered, you can be glued back together but the cracks are there." ~ Allison Usually when you start reading there are things that will make you have a love/hate relationship with the male lead character, but in this book my love/hate is with the female lead character Allison. She is very broken and with the love of Dean she is slowly being put together. This book is a very intense read that may hold triggers for some reader. If you dare to read Allison and Dean's story you will be put through the ringer and hopefully you will come out not as shattered as Dean and Allison. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
