From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes an emotionally gripping, standalone, contemporary romance.

It was never love with Daniel and I never thought it would be.
It was only lust from a distance.
Unrequited love maybe.

He’s a man I could never have, for so many reasons.
That didn’t stop my heart from beating wildly when his eyes pierced through me.

How would you feel if you came face to face with your soulmate, only to realize they couldn’t be yours? What lengths would you go to to stay close? The theme of this book could be called a beautiful sadness. Denying your soul, trying to do the right thing, is it worth it? Addison carries this deep sadness inside of her but I found that only drew me to her more. Her sadness made her beautiful. Both are lost without the other and yet each is a current going the opposite direction. Fighting against ...more

First, I want to say I had NO idea this book had (view spoiler) I'll take cheating over that any day of the week...sigh. That said, I wasn't bothered by that as much as I usually am. I'm attributing that to this author's amazing storytelling ability. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect. The plot was engaging and had me hooked from the first page. It was a fairly quick read clocking in at just two and half hours. It was also du

I came upon Possessive serendipitously. That is, through a casual conversation between two authors, Willow and I got on the subject of new books, and I asked if I could read whatever it was that she was currently working on. I received an early copy of Possessive a few minutes later, and I didn’t stop the book until I was finished. Just to contextualize that, I’m in the middle of writing 2 books of my own, and I put that business on hold to finish this tremendously engaging read from Willow.

*** 3.5 Stars ***

This was just an ok read for me. I had trouble fully connecting to the characters and I can’t put my finger on exactly why? I’m hoping if I give myself time to think about it, it might come to me!

There are brothers of the hero so there will be other books.. the storyline is intriguing enough that I’d be willing to pick up the next instalment; but if I end up having trouble connecting a second time, I would probably give up then.

The positive aspect to this read was the sex! Holy

Be prepared, because this is not an easy read. Not because it's a bad book but because you will live it. Willow Winters writes in a way that transports you into her story. You feel every nuance of emotion that each page holds. Daniel and Addison's story is full of love and lust. Tragedy and triumph. Full of wrongs done and wrongs forgiven. But can the past truly be put behind them when it is filled with so much pain. ...more

Addison and Daniel are finally here — and they've been by far my best book yet. Hands down in every way. This is the story that kept me up at night, and begged me to write their story.
It gave me a book hangover from writing it. I can't wait for you to get your hands on it and experience it for yourself!

ღ I am struggling for word, I cannot even tell you how great this story is without giving away the storyline! I am going to be honest here, the read wasn’t easy, it is heartbreaking gut wrenching read. Such pain- When I read Tyler thoughts I had to put down the book & collect myself. ➦ Hope you enjoy this read & also always keep in mind this is just my opinion

I really wonder what it would be like to be in love with two men at the same time. Okay, not really, but I do think it's an interesting concept. And for those two men to be brothers is just icing on the drama cake. Throughout this story, I kept asking myself how I would handle loving two men and not being with the one I'm most passionate about.

I found myself quite absorbed by the tragedy that laid the foundation for this story and how it affected Daniel and Addison in such different and yet simi

This review is hard to write because it's almost like I've read a different story than everybody else.

It felt a lot like watching an episode of a TV show without knowing what's actually going on. There were a few times when I wanted to give up reading, foremost in the first half of the book, but I was stubborn enough to pull through.

It got only slightly better in the second half of the book but I did like the chapters of the past because they gave me at least some kind of story, emoti

First I want to say I LOVE the cover of this book! Wasn't as dark as I expected after reading the blurb, but I think it is a great story. Lust, forbidden love, wanting what isn't yours. Possessive has all the feels! Willow kept me guessing which direction things were going. Addison reminded me a lot of my younger self, I felt like she was easy to connect with. Daniel was quiet and guarded, just my type of guy! I wanted to know their story, I cou

Anyone who knows me knows that the enemies to lovers trope is my jam. I absolutely love the tension, the fiery banter and the explosive AF chemistry. Possessive had all of these things and more but with a dash of the taboo. Daniel and Addison were sexy, damaged, unpredictable and so hot. There was alot of pain between them but when they got together - it was pure Fireworks! I could not get enough!

Possessive by Willow Winters is the story of Daniel Cross and Addison Fawn.

Addison lived through the foster care system but while attending a high school she meet Tyler Cross. Addison never felt wanted but Tyler made her feel that way and then when she met his father and brothers they seem to like her too....except Daniel. Daniel just watched her all the time. Addison did feel an attraction for Daniel..more so than Tyler. But she was 17 and dating Tyler but then after several months she did br

I just don't care what happens.

This did not interest me AT ALL. Don't even care what happened before, don't care what happens next.

I don't know whether it was the writing.. or the plot.. or how the story is being told.. or the pace of it.. or just whatever.

I just didn't connect with this book.

This book is currently my favorite book by Willow!
I feel like every time I read her next new book it gets better every time. And this book pulled me right in.

I loved all the emotions that this book provoked in me, like my heart was in my mouth. And I loved the way it's written, it changes between past and present and has various POVs. The angst, mystery, forbidden love, emotions, bad boy, strong woman and all tied with a good plot. And it's sexy as hell!

The only thing that stopped me

This is Addison & Daniel story, it was a little slow considering Merciless series. It gives back ground of their history and how Addison comes to being with Daniel.

Willow Winters is an author who seems to grab me with every book she releases, each one begging to be read. They promise the dark romances I favour, the gritty storylines that keep you hooked. Despite having quite a few Willow Winters reads on my Kindle, it was only recently that I popped my Willow Winters cherry through reading She Asked For It. I adored it, and was left wanting more.

Fortunately, upon finishing She Asked For It, we’re made aware of a connected story – Possessive. In She Asked F

Addison and Daniel don’t have the easiest time. I loved that they are both broken from the same thing but were also able to find common ground and something so much more because of it. This book gave me the mob/mafia type feeling and leads up to what will be another book of one of Daniels brothers. Yes we get a romance with these two characters, but i felt that the end really opened it up to a deeper plot for what’s to come and I will say I’m excited and can’t wait to read the next one. 4 Stars ...more

There is nothing wrong with this book per se however did the blurb imply that the heroine was with the Hero's brother? Noooooooooo of course bloody not.

Even though the Hero's brother died to some tragic incident this book was drenched in guilt, self-blame and suffering I cannot pick out one happy moment or thing is this book.

But Ms. Winters is good at portraying emotions but there is no balance to the emotions of these two.

I stopped reading at page 187 of 286.

Have you ever been in love so much it hurt? What if that person, that soulmate, that ONE for you was not yours to love? If an opportunity presented itself but was surrounded by insurmountable sadness and loss, would you still do anything and everything to make them yours? When does it all become too much?

This is the heartbreakingly beautiful love story between Addison Fawn and Daniel Cross.

Before you read this book you may want a box of tissues nearby. This is a love story about Addison and Daniel who were attracted to each other but there was someone else in the picture also. Even though there was no real love between them, Addison couldn’t bring herself to hurt him, he had done so much for her already. Five years later Addison and Daniel’s paths crossed in a bar. This is where their relationship sparked into an explosive and emotional affair. Daniel couldn’t get enough of Addy a ...more

I've been looking forward to reading Daniel's story since She Asked For It and boy I knew it would be dark but I never thought it would be THAT dark. He was hiding way more secrets than I had thought, so yeah it was kind of like meeting a new Daniel.

Let's be real though, even though his life and his past was dark, he had a lot of good in him and I love that. He was just a boy who had been dealt a shitty life and who had been hurt one too many times and so he had been lost,

Possessive had me under a spell!! Willow had me absolutely captivated, hooked, fascinated, and mesmerized by her superb words.

"I have a soft spot for her."

Possessive is about....well, possession and let's think about that word for a minute. When I think about Possessive a few words that come to mind are overprotective, jealous, controlling, greedy.

"I'm drawn to him and always have been. It's like my body knows his. Like my soul was waiting for his."
