Reviewer for Alpha Book Review



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…




(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)

I was given this ARC for review. I didn’t read the first part of the story. I am glad I didn’t because I would not be able to read the abduction and horror that Katherine went through by Will’s father. I would have missed out on the beauty of the second part of this love story. Monica Murphy was very descriptive at retelling the first part but not enough where I got the play by play. Monica Murphy drew me to her characters.

My heart was torn for Ethan/Will and Katherine. Katherine loved Will but doesn’t trust Ethan. Her mind and heart torn with the knowledge that Ethan and Will are the same person. Ethan loves Katherine dearly but knows his deception cost her trust for him. This story had me glued to my Kindle. This is a story I highly recommend.

Reviewer’s Note:
I would only recommend the second book because I wouldn’t want to read in detail Katherine’s abduction.
