    ~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~ I will be honest, I am struggling a little with how to rate this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it a lot. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect. The plot was super engaging and kept me turning the pages like a crazy person. I just couldn...

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Where to start? Carter captivated me from the very start. Merciless is without a doubt one of my favourites books of 2018. Carter is the head of his family business. He's cold-hearted, ruthless and always gets what he wants. An...

    This book was phenomenal. Carter is all alpha with dark needs. War is coming and he will get what is wants. Aria knows what it is like to be in his fathers world. She plays the good role but that?s it. She lives in fear. She doesn?t see the redemption coming but Carter is determine...

    Oh yes!!! Willow Winters is amazing at Mafia Romances. Very few authors are able to make chills run down my arms and spine when it comes to this genre without having to resort to the very dark aspects of this type of novel, and yet, this author has easily mana...

    Holy Mary, mother of God! Wow. Willow I am hooked! To know that I can enjoy this twisted sadistic story is proof that you are a badass. Not everyone can pull off such darkness with Grace, but by God you never fail to amaze me. You wanted to know what I thought of that ending?? IT WAS P...

    *****NOW LIVE**** This is a real page turner! I couldn't flip the pages fast enough. Carter Cross is one of Willow Winter's most enigmatic characters yet. And the ending... ABSOLUTELY MIND-BLOWING! When he was introduced at the end of Possessive, I wanted his story immediately!! In...

    Merciless by Willow Winters is yet another dark, and twisted tale of love and maybe redemption. It?s a truly exceptional story about Carter Cross and Aria Talvery. Aria is a mafioso?s daughter, one of the biggest crime lords around and she becomes a hostage when she?s captured b...

    Oh my gosh! I have been waiting for this book ever since I got a glimpse of Carter in Possessive and it was worth the wait. Dark, so much darker than Possessive, and you find yourself tensing up a lot, but you can?t put it down either. Carter is so intense and Aria is so broken, but ...

    Carter Cross is one sinfully addicted alpha! Merciless is exceptional. Carter is sexy, powerful and dangerous. I love it. It is a book that captures your attention and doesn't let you go. I couldn't help but to fall in love with both Carter and Aria. Page after page, word after wor...

    Carter and Aria's story is way dark and intense. And not over. So much of this is waiting as she slowly breaks- this girl is super strong-willed and fierce. A good match for him. These brothers are really something, quite a power family. I hope they all get a story! Carter can be pr...

    Willow Winters has done it again and this book is going down as my early favourite of 2018. This book is gripping; an astounding mix of cruelty, brutality, beauty and frailty combining to produce a story that will leave you shellshocked and wanting more. Carter Cross is the dark kni...

    Gilded Cage This book by Willow Winters left me completely breathless. Carter is a man you love to hate. When he sets his mind on something he wants, he takes it on no holds barred. Carter has his sights on Aria. He knew she was his Achilles heel, but he could not stop himself from ...

    * Read more of my reviews at Whoo Gives A Hoot * Willow Winters knows how to write her leading men in a way that both excites and terrifies readers. Ever since meeting Carter, the sexy and intimidating eldest Cross in Possessive (Daniel and Addison's story), I have been eagerly anti...

    When I read the blurb to Merciless I knew I needed to read it. I enjoyed Possessive by this author and was very curious about Carter's story. While I am (fanatically) obsessed with dark mafia type stories I just could not really connect with Carter and his relationship with Aria. As a ...

    Willow Winters has a gift for writing men that captivate us despite our best intentions. Men we root for even when we don't know why. We look for reasons to care for them, lost after them, love them. Carter is one of those men and Aria is the woman trying to answer those questions....
