Mason Thatcher gave me chills when I first laid eyes on him. The good kind. The kind that makes your body ache and your heart hammer.
What’s better is that he looked at me the same way.
There was a hunger in his eyes that wouldn’t be sated, and a confidence in his stride that told me I could never run from him. Back then, I didn’t want to.
It’s not fair that his touch eased my pain.
That his lips on mine made my worries vanish.
That his love gave me a reason to breathe again.
With him, I felt complete, as if fate had given me a second chance.
Then I learned the truth: the sins and secrets of what really brought us together.
I knew it was too good to be true, but I could never have imagined he’d be capable of something so cold and cruel. That he was the reason my world crumbled.
There’s no way we can go back to what we once had and it’s not as easy as walking away. He can’t risk me telling his secrets.
I don’t know what choices I have or how I’ll survive this.
What he’s done is unforgivable, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to let me go.
Unforgiven is the second book in the new series, Sins and Secret Series of Duets by Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author Willow Winters. It is book 2 of a 2 book duet although other standalone duets will be featured in the series. It is not necessary, but highly recommended that you read book 1, Imperfect, before reading Unforgiven.
I didn’t know it until I lost her, but I had nothing to live for without Jules.
The idea that she could turn me in has hardly even registered. It’s merely a passing thought that intrudes upon the images of seeing her walk away from me. The memories of her pushing against my chest, scratching and violently kicking me. Her screams that she hates me ring in my ears over and over.
I swallow thickly as I descend the stairs, gripping the railing and matching the heavy thud of my bare feet with the pounding of my heart.
I need to figure out how to make her forget the past and remember her future is with me. My head nods, envisioning how this was supposed to be. How it could have ended so beautifully.
Unforgiven has so much angst, it killed me! This book hands down is better than book one. Maybe because we finally have closure. Through the first half of the book I was not very happy with Mason. He held on to Jules as much as he could. We start off where we left off with book one. I was so anxious. Sins and Secrets Duet books are about true love. Seeing the beauty in it even if you are surrounded by dark. Hope is another word that comes in mind. Forgiveness. There is just so much that this story gives, I am still on overload. Unforgiven is powerful…
There is more than the lies. Deceit is everywhere. I feel like the truth is not enough anymore. Jules is held captive but only by her heart. She tries to break the chains of despair. It’s no use. Just like the words from the book itself, the heart wants what it wants.
The twists and turns are everywhere. I think I have all the answers to the truth, then I come to find out I was not even close. When we do get to the conclusion of this book, I was definitely in for a surprise as much as the other characters were. Willow Winters straight up captured me from page to page. I loved this duet. I feel she puts Dark Romance above all others. Unforgiven is THE MUST READ so far!

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!
