The second novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy wraps up an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.
The truth hurts, they say—and my pain cuts deep. While I was falling for Ethan, he was deceiving me the entire time. He held a huge secret, protected by his lies. When I discovered what he was hiding, the truth shook my world, threatening to ruin us forever. Ruin me. But I soon realized that what we share can’t be destroyed.
The connection between us is too strong. It always has been. I can’t deny him any longer. And I can’t deny my truth: I’m in love with Ethan.
I don’t want to let him go.
While we’re trying our best to make this relationship work, other forces are fighting against us. My family, who wants to keep me safe. The media obsessed with my tragic past. The public that feeds off of it. Even Ethan’s father—the man who nearly destroyed me all those years ago. He’s doing his best to finish the job.
Despite my love for Ethan, the doubts creep in, clouding my mind. Is he worth the pain? Will our love survive, or will we have no choice but to end it—end us—once and for all?
Katherine Watts wants so desperately to break free from the chains of her endless pain. She refuses to let the convicted serial killer, Aaron Monroe steal her future in the same way that he did her past.
And yet there is a lingering part of the monster that somehow makes it all better – Will.
When Will reappeared in her life as “Ethan” - she surrendered body and soul. And when she learned his secret, she thought she would never be whole again. Being together is forbidden. But being apart is impossible.
It can never be the same between us. I know this. Yet despite my anger, I’m still sad that what happened is too large of an obstacle for us to overcome.
Will Monroe has fought so hard to bury who he once was. He even changed his name. It didn’t matter if he was Will or Ethan – he was still hopelessly in love with Katie. He’s willing to do anything that it takes to win her back. And in the process, he’s going to prove that it doesn’t matter what the world thinks of their love as long as they weather the storm together.
“I’m afraid.” She pauses and I wait patiently. When it comes to Katie, I can be forever patient. “I’m afraid we’re not good for each other,” she whispers. I lean in and press my mouth to her cheek. Her breath hitches at the first touch of my lips on her skin. “In the end, all we’ll do is cause each other pain. I don’t know if I can stand that again. The pain. Always so much pain in my life.”
Monica Murphy saved the best for last with Never Let You Go. She gives her readers everything that they were hoping for in the conclusion of Will and Katie’s story and so much more! It packs an intensely charged emotional punch that will leave you daring to believe that love can really conquer all.
