The sins of his past can’t be forgiven.

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 strid

I devoured part one and jumped right into this one. It's the conclusion to Mason and Julia's story. Mason takes obsession to the next level in this story. It pushed at my boundaries and I wouldn't call what he did "healthy" for a relationship. When I was able to get out of my own filter and comfort zone, however, I was entertained.

The plot took both anticipated and unexpected turns. I felt Julia had more of an opportunity for growth while Mason was pretty much who he was right from the start. S

It was so hard to finish this book. So freaking hard!! Why??? Because I HATED Julia. HATED HER!!

I just couldn't find it in myself to like the heroine. She was a complete basket case. She was useless. She was inconsistent. She was not relatable. She was utterly unlikable. What pushed me to continue reading was the hero. Ahhhh... Mason was AWESOME!! The author gave us so much of him. His inner workings, his inner thoughts, his motivations, his passion, his compassion, and his absolute devotion and
Unforgiven is book two of the "Sins and Secrets Duet." This installment picks up right where the first book left off. Unfortunately, I found Jules to be one of those annoying heroines that I just do not care for. Mason; the hero....deserved a much more loyal woman....especially while he was willing to go to any depths for her. I hate when one of the couple is 100% invested in their relationship, and the other one just complains...and won't even try to forgive the other person. That pretty much s ...more

Title: Unforgiven
Author: Willow Winters

5 amazing stars

Here are a few things I knew as I went in this book:
1- Jules and Mason's relationship was explosif to say the least
2- Jules was a broken woman after the death of her husband
3- Mason is hiding the biggest secret from Jules, one that will rock her to her core
4- Mason's father is a first class a$$hat (and I'm putting it mildly)
5- Imperfect ended in quite the cliffhanger that gave me one heck of a book hangover

"Right now, I just need to feel like you love me again..."

A fantastic conclusion to an intoxicating duet! I loved IMPERFECT, and UNFORGIVEN was not what I was expecting, but in the best way.

How far would you go to forgive the man you love... I admit, at times I felt Jules was clinging a little too long to her first husband, who'd betrayed her over and over... Still, it was a great read!

Suspense, betrayal, HOT sexytimes, and a surprising mystery--if you love these things, don't miss this FIVE STA

This is the conclusion to Imperfect, which is a duet in the Sins and Secrets series. You have to read book 1 to understand book 2.
Mason Thatcher will do everything to get Julia back, to get her to stay with him. Since becoming aware of what Mason has done, things are unraveling fast and now Julia is now a prisoner in the home she shared with Mason. She suffers from a range of emotions- the biggest are anger, confusion and yet love. All these emotions are driving her a bit batty. Mason himself is

This is the conclusion to the story and in it you get all the heartache and love. I loved this story and read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. The opening poem (Chapter 1) was so intense and so much feeling. It gives such an expression of loss of self and strength to fight. Mason continues to professes his love for Jules. But will Jules?
The story continues with the manipulation, betrayal and death. How many will fall before the truth is revealed?

Wowzer, did this part of the story get dark....I mean DAAAARK! This concludes Julia and Mason's story and I am pretty speechless with this ride. Right at the beginning since you found out some secrets Julia and Mason are in a very delicate situation. I thought Mason was all swoony and sweet but I got to see a very dark side to his being and I was very unsure if I could continue my love for this character. Julia tried to be a stronger character but I think she fell flat. I enjoyed the new mystery ...more

This is the second book in this series and Imperfect needs to be read first.

Mason Thatcher will do everything he can to get Julia to stay with him, even if that means keeping her a prisoner in his home. Yet he believes he is doing this to protect her from his father and from whomever knows the truth about what happened that night with Jace.

Julia Summers hates Mason for what he did to her life, even if the life she was living was a lie. She thinks he is dangerous but she has no idea how far his f

What an exciting tale! There were twists and surprises that kept me on my toes!

I was excited for this book and it didn't disappoint. So here's the thing, starting from where book one left off, she's afraid of him. But really, she's more afraid of the truth. I mean cmon he was willing to tell her everything, but she didn't ask a whole lot of questions.

I love their story. I love how Willow showed different sides to them. They were real and flawed, but strong.
I received an arc of this.

When the man who helped put you back together is the one who blew you apart

Willow Winters conclusion to her Sins and Secrets duet is a masterful study of betrayal and the pain it causes. It also proves the adage, the heart wants what the heart wants. Jules and Mason's relationship was never easy and the challenges they now face put them in danger not just of losing each other but losing it all. this is Miss Winters best work to date.

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for an unbiased review.

This is a review of both Unforgiven and Imperfect , as I read them both together.

Once I got into the meat of the story, I couldn't put these books down. They're classified as suspense, but I think I'd go with just a semi-dark romance. There's definitely an element of danger, and some mysteries to be solved, which puts it in that category - but I really like how everything was woven together in one big hot mess of a story.

Unforgiven drew me in from the very beginning, the intensity, and raw detailed emotion grabbed me by the feels and took me on a rollercoaster ride full of frustrations, sadness, hug it out moments, and awe-inspiring love.
To me, this book felt a bit darker than the first, but in IMO that is one of Willow Winters talents.

Great conclusion to the story. As we begin this one, Mason is sort of holding Julia prisoner. She's numb from what she's learned about the true fate of her husband. She wants to leave, but Mason wants to make sure she knows the entire story -- how he and her husband were connected and why Mason did what he did. It's not as cut and dried as it seems. But now Julia is in danger because she knows, because someone else told her, which means someone else knows. And Mason needs to keep her safe until ...more

Unforgiven is a continuation from where Imperfect left off and can't be read as a standalone.
Unforgiven is another fantastic 5 star read and is everything I'd hoped it would be when I finished Imperfect.
This book ripped me apart and I couldn't put it down once and I had to read it in one sitting.
Willow Winters definitely knows how to keep her readers hooked with all these fantastic plot twists and the heartbreaking story of Julia and Mason.
I absolutely loved this story and fell hard for Mason

OMG.OMG.OMG. This was a very intense book, but very good! I finished the first book this morning then started this one & didn't put it down until I was done! It hooks you from the very beginning and keeps you hooked through the rest of the book. Even up until the very end, it remained intense and kept you wondering what would happen. Mason and Jules definitely have an interesting love story to tell their kids about in the future. I found this to be much better than the first book, which was ...more

😬This story took me by surprise. It was raw with so much emotion! It kept me in my toes with a few twist and lies going. The love between these two is intense and consuming. Love and hate are emotions that both bring out the most passion. You definitely have it in this story. Totally recommend. Must read book 1 to get the foundation of this story.

Can you forgive a killer?  Can you love one?  These two questions are tearing Julia up inside and ruining what was between her and Mason. Book 2 of this series has twists and turns, darkness and some light. It makes you think and reach deep into yourself to ask the hardest of questions. Truth is, you never know how you would react until placed in that situation. It is that that Julia must learn amd understand. Beautifully written, I loved this book and it was a fitting end to this 2 book duet. C ...more

To be completely honest, I kept the first book to read when the this book came out because I knew it would drive me insane having to wait to read the ending! WELL WELL WELL worth the wait! I REALLY enjoyed both books! Can't wait for the 3rd book in the series (different characters)

The poetry in this book at the beginning of each chapter is just as beautiful as the the book in this duet.

This is the continuation of Imperfect. This is not a stand alone.

I wanted to smack Jules and take Mason away from her. I am so in love with him. My one downfall is to see a man cry.
This book had me crying, it had me so torn up.
The plot twist in this book was fabulous. It keeps you guessing.

One thing about Willow is she delivers in her books. She never disappoints.

I can't wait for Kat' s story.

I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book.

It really is full of twists and turns and lots of guessing weather there relationship could work 

Great book by another amazing author and would deff recommend
