Darkly sexy, emotional and forbidden, a woman unwittingly falls in love with the son of her abductor. The beginning of a two-book contemporary romance series by New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy.
Katie Watts was almost thirteen when she was kidnapped at an amusement park. Held captive for days, she’s finally rescued by her captor’s teenage son, Will, who’s been subjected to his father’s mental and physical abuse for years. In the aftermath, Katie was sent into seclusion with her family, and Will was shipped off to one foster home after another, completely disappearing from her life.
Fast forward to present day and Katherine is ready to tell her story on prime-time news. She believes talking about it will help purge all the self-hatred and devastation once and for all. But she is wrong.
Will watches Katie’s interview on TV and is inexplicably drawn to her. Her vulnerability, the quiver in her voice as she tells her story—a story he shares with her that no one else understands—makes him ache to protect her once again. He starts to follow her. Watch over her. Ensure she’s safe. Banish all the horrible memories that still linger within. Because now that he’s found her again, there’s no way in hell he’s going to lose her a second time.
“This book has all the best parts of romance and betrayal. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”
Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author
“A powerful story of friendship, trauma, coping, and betrayal. The characters jump off the page into real life and will have…[listeners] gasping and feeling every emotion that they go through. Another amazing book to add to Murphy’s already stellar library.”
RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“An intriguing concept: Ethan manipulates vulnerable, clueless Katherine into falling in love with him by exploiting their inescapable childhood bond. Murphy imbues these characters with genuineness and plausibility.”
“By having Ethan and Katie take turns narrating alternate chapters set in the past and the present, Murphy has written a compelling and emotional love story of two severely broken people, each of whom can be healed only by the other. This is the first book in a two-part series, and…[listeners] should be warned that it does have a cliffhanger ending.”
“A powerful story that left me raw yet hopeful.”
K. A. Tucker, USA Today bestselling author
