Darkly sexy, emotional and forbidden, a woman unwittingly falls in love with the son of her abductor. The conclusion of a two-book contemporary romance series by New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy.
Lies hurt. Lies destroy. I tried my best to understand why Ethan kept his secrets but it was so hard. Until I realized that I couldn't deny myself any longer -- I needed to be with him. We needed each other. Despite my family's wariness, the media's fascination with us, the fact that his father still has a stranglehold on our lives, we belong together. No matter what. I will never let Ethan go. But sometimes love destroys us too, and we're too weak to banish the demons. Especially when our demons are determined to ruin us...

This was a great emotional read from Monica Murphy and it was completely different in a way to her other books.
The story is about Katherine Watts who at a very young age was subjected to something that no child should every encounter when was kidnapped at the age of 12. Will was her saviour, who saved her all them years ago. Now in order to help her move on Katherine does a tv interview to tell her side of the story. This is seen by Will (Ethan, his new identity) who knows he should stay away but he is just drawn to Katherine.
This was a very emotional read. It's not only a story of second chance love but it is underlined with betrayal and lies. The story is told from both of their POV's and it also switches between the past and the present. This is done very clearly by the author and I liked how it interweaved between the two. It is really well written and has a great pace. I was sucked in to the story early on and wanted to keep reading. This was one of those books where you are hoping for a HEA for characters but we need to wait for book 2 to see if they do. It's not a cliffhanger ending as such I don't think but it does end you wanting to read book 2 straightaway. The book does deal with some very difficult issues and I thought the author dealt very well them in the book.
Overall a great emotional read and I look forward to reading book 2.
