Release Date: September 26, 2016Willow Lamott’s best friend is a murderer, and no one in the small town of Gilt Hollow will let her forget it. For four long years, she’s tried to fade into the background—but none of that matters when Ashton Keller comes striding into school, fresh out of juvie and fueled by revenge. The moment their eyes meet, Willow no longer feels invisible. Drawn to the vulnerability behind Ashton’s mask of rage, she sinks deeper into his sinister world and begins to question whether he’s a villain, a savior, or both.
Ashton thought he wanted vengeance, until Willow reminded him what he’d been missing. Now he longs to clear his name and become the person she sees in him. But the closer they get to uncovering the truth, the darker the secrets become, and Ashton fears his return to Gilt Hollow will destroy everyone he loves, especially the girl he left behind.
I have met Lorie a handful of times now and I absolutely love her! She co-wrote the Doon series and I really enjoyed the first book in that series and being able to gush about Scottish men with her. When she told me about her new release the last time I met her in May, I knew that I had to pick it up. There is mystery and romance, two things that I really enjoy in a book, so I can't wait to finally read this!
