She was too good for this world. I was too much of a bastard to push her away.
I grew up in this life, and now I run these streets. Blood and violence taint everything I touch.
Everything but her. She was my constant through it all.
Just a touch would singe and soothe.
Just a look would tempt and torment.
She became my escape and my addiction.
I only survived because she was by my side.
I should’ve known better than to indulge.
I should’ve known better than to let her fall for me.
It was only a matter of time before the danger bled into what we had.
I was Laura’s downfall. Problem was, she was mine too.
I can not believe I’ve waited so long to read Willow Winters. This book… THIS FREAKING BOOK… I basically ate it for dinner. My heart is still not back to normal and when I think back on everything it’s just been through, I get flickers of pleasure pain all over again. The writing on these pages is STELLAR. The storytelling is EVERYTHING. This world Winters has built is dark and gritty and terrifying and passionate. I both hated and loved every bit of it. I could not get enough. It was so good. So so good.
Omggggggg!!! I can not believe I’ve waited so long to read Willow Winters. This book… THIS FREAKING BOOK… I basically ate it for dinner. My heart is still not back to normal and when I think back on everything it’s just been through, I get flickers of pleasure pain all over again. The writing on these pages is STELLAR. The storytelling is EVERYTHING. This world Winters has built is dark and gritty and terrifying and passionate. I both hated and loved every bit of it. I could not get enough. It was so good. So so good.
I’m hooked. I need everything this author has ever written. I need more of THIS, this elusive FEELING that rarely makes an appearance while I’m reading but was present on every single page of Hard to Love. This is what addiction must be like. Seth and Laura’s story is intoxicating. Euphoric in the way only the ugliest, most lush high must be like. It feels so good even at its darkest. It heats your blood, makes everything feel alive even though it might just kill you… and as soon as you come down from it, you only WANT MORE. I want more.
This couple is a tragedy in the making. Their story was born in devastation and it exists in that place for it’s entirety. But that darkness, that desperation… it’s peppered with moments of such rightness, such hope, such absolute soul searing LOVE. It’s those moments that keep you on the edge, on the tenuous line between hope and absolute despair.
It hurts so good, this book. I devoured every word because it was just THAT delicious. Seriously, Winters’ way with words is everything I didn’t know I needed. I couldn’t get enough. This story is so emotional, so gritty, so suspenseful, so devastating. There were moments so grim, my heart broke right down the middle. There are moments so hopeful, I couldn’t help but NEED. And that’s where I’m left… completely needy for what’s to come. I’m so THRILLED I’ve found this new-to-me author because while I wait for more of this story, I’ll be binge reading her backlog. I can not wait for what’s next.
About the Author
Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Best Selling Author!
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!
