From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes an emotionally gripping, standalone, romantic suspense with an edge of darkness.
I never thought of life like the petals of a rose before.
But they're so alike.
Delicate and easily crushed.
Broken... just like he made me.
He could pluck away and there was nothing I could do except be destroyed and accept my fate.
That's what he does, he ruins what he touches. Ruthless and cold hearted.
They gave me to him.
To do as he'd like.
All because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He grew addicted to the feel of plucking away at me. At leaving me bare and taking control over every piece of me.
And if I'm honest with myself... I grew to love it too.

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!

I will say this.. the writing is great however, the female character Emma, yeah I can't get past her. All she does is think I can't deal with this, oh yes I can. She left him when they were young for dealing. Now he "runs the town" and she can be OK with that?? Oh and he admits to killing someone. Don't worry she's OK with that too. She will not stop with being upset about him dealing then being OK with it. Couldn't take it anymore. I have finished some really bad books but couldn't with this.
I got through the book although I almost stopped mid-way. There were a lot of emotions in the story but they did not portray a depth to pull me in. The female lead was just a turn off for me. I think the story plot was a good one and would have been much better read if the book had been longer and more detail.
Second chances don't always come around. Will she forgive him or slam the door in his face? When they do you grab them and make sure you don't burn that promise again!
A Great, Sweet, and Sexy Book Derek was a bad boy who dealt drugs in high school to help support his mom who had cancer. Emma was the good girl who couldn't look past the drugs. But, neither one got over their hidden, yet effortless high school romance. When reintroduced by Emma's sister & her boyfriend, sparks fly. Emma can't say no to Derek, but she certainly doesn't want to either. This was a great, sweet, yet sexy book about a rekindled romance. But, it is also a book that explores setting boundaries in a relationship that challenges your beliefs. Excellent read. I loved Emma, Derek & Kate's characters. I ended up really disliking Tony's character. That to me is a sign of a great book! Very well written with some very emotional scenes and scorching hot sex scenes. The plot was very engaging. No cliffhanger. I highly recommend this book.
Derek and Emma were high school sweethearts, but Derek was dangerous with an illegal reputation. Not wanting to be involved in his secretive life she walked away. Now five years later Derek is wealthy and this bad boy has his second chance; he will do anything to make Emma his. A wonderfully written story with praiseworthy characters, an intriguing plot that keeps you hooked, emotional moments that pull your heartstrings, dynamic scene descriptions that wow you, and fiery passionate romance that is genuine. Derek is definitely the alpha male but he does cherish Emma and Emma is definitely his perfect match; loved them together. I relished this passionate story; a most gratifying read. If you treasure bad boy romances this is definitely a fabulous book for your library. Without reservations, I recommend this book.
Interesting enough .
