Book description:
Crazy how eight years can disappear in an instant. One look at Katie Watts, and I'm a fifteen-year-old again--the one who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. She's grown-up now--beautiful, quiet, composed--and telling her story to the world. A story that involves me in more ways than you can imagine. She used to call me her guardian angel. Sure, I risked my life, but she was worth dying for.

I need to make contact with her. Just to ensure that she's safe.

Somehow we reconnect. We become friends . . . but I want more. I want to make her mine. And she wants me too. Does she know who I am? Has she figured me out? Not yet. But she will. In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone.

So, yeah, I'm stealing these moments with her. Savoring them. Knowing, dreading, that she'll soon find out who I really am. And everything will fall apart. All because of that twisted, perverted monster sitting on death row. Her kidnapper. A convicted serial killer.

My father.


My Review

I love Monica Murphy, so of course when I saw she was releasing a dark contemporary romance I was jumping at the bits to read it. Now that I have finished Never Tear Us Apart, I am completely torn. The one thing I know for sure is I desperately need the conclusion to the story!

Katie Watts was abducted, beaten and raped when she was twelve years old. Her life as she knew it was over and she quickly learned her actual life would soon be ending, too. Will changed Katie’s fate. A young boy himself, he choose to go against his fears and do the right thing. He saved her from his father and took her to the police. 



Now eight years later Will has changed his name and tried to leave his past behind him. Despite years of therapy Katie is struggling to do the same. Everyone knows her story and everyone wants a piece of her. Regardless she tries to move forward, to be a normal girl and experience things other college students are doing. Katie is trying to move on when she meets Ethan, but he is holding back a huge secret that could completely destroy her. 

This story is super fast paced and I was immediately engaged. I was so desperate to get some answers. I wanted to know everything about Katie and Will’s past and what their future would hold. I was not disappointed in that regard, but even after I finish I am still left with tons of questions and lots of mixed feelings. I am seriously struggling with how I feel about everything and who can be trusted. 


The story is told in dual point of view and switches from past to present so the reader can see the full story. I can honestly tell you this story will have you in knots. My feelings have gone back and forth and I have had an ongoing debate about how things will play out. I am so desperate for the sequel and conclusion to this story. I highly recommend if you like darker romances, with a hint of suspense. (The suspense is probably just me, but I am seriously jacked up over this one!)
