About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

Our love story isn't a tragedy but it sure as hell started out like one.

I grew up in the life, and learned to hate everything in this town. 

Everything but her. She was my constant through it all.

Just a look would tempt and torment.

Just a touch would singe and soothe.

I only survived because she was by my side.

I feared the danger would bleed into what we had.

After all, she was too good for this world. But I was too far gone to push her away.

I was Laura’s downfall. 

Problem was, she was mine too.

Hard to Love is book 1 of the Hard to Love, romantic suspense, series.

Oh. My. Freaking. Gosh. I went into this prepared and thinking I would be okay. That did not happen. I was absolutely and totally knocked on my arse and proven utterly wrong. If you think you are ready, you are not. This is Seth and Laura’s continuation and it will rip you apart. There are so many twists that will make your heart stop. I wanted to cry, yell and throw my kindle. There is suspense, angst, secrets, lies, heartache, heart wrenching emotions and twists that will blow your mind. 🤯🤯🤯 I had to take a few days before writing this and I am still having side effects. Just when you think, “okay, I got this,” another twist is thrown at you. You are left stunned and thinking, “I did NOT see that coming!” This deserves more than five stars and is the best Willow book to date. I am absolutely taken in by Seth. Easy to Fall cannot come fast enough. Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be a bumpy and emotional ride. “Her eyes light up, her lips turn up, everything goes up and everything is better when I call her babygirl.” My favorite quote and it sums up Seth and Laura’ relationship perfectly: ““I’ve always loved him and even though...” I trail off because I don’t even know where to start. Our love story isn’t a straight line, it’s chaotic scribbles on a page. It’s f***ed up. “I need him right now. Why would you question that?””

I can tell anyone that wants to listen that I will read every single book from this lady and think it's not enough. She knows what she's doing. She knows how to capture our attention as well as our heart. Willow Winters is the best. Her books are to die for and it's Hard not To Love. Her writing is raw and wild, intense and emotional with a touch of hotness and darkness. Just saying. Hard To Love is her latest release and tells the stories of Seth and Laura. I've been wanting to go to know more about Seth since the first book from the Merciless series. He's that enigmatic. This book will let us know more about him. Seth is always surrounded by a dark cloud. Being inside the drugs and crime business will make that to any person. He doesn't think that he's capable of loving someone let alone be loved by anyone until Laura. Laura is struggling. From a young age, she was used to fighting for what she wants and to help the ones she loves. Her grandma was her everything and after her death, her world crumbled. She thought that the love of her life was going to be there with her but sometimes... I was so freaking mad when this book ended... Mad I tell you... Why Willow? Why? Why? This book was perfect until it wasn't... Dayum... Why is it over? Why? Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense. Darkness surrounded every page and it was nearly impossible to stop reading... It was page after page of suspense, desire, and darkness. Jesus... I'm stunned... I said that I was mad, but not in a bad way. This author can't write a story that I don't love. She can't. Now I'm going to be insane waiting for the next one... Willow... Oh, Willow... Why? Why woman? You're lucky that I love you... Just saying... I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I am catching up on W. Winters Hard to Love series because she is will be releasing book four soon! I am addicted ya'all. Hard to Love has so much angst, my stomach felt like there was a lead ball in it. Laura and Seth's story is still a mystery. There is a lot we learn about the dark life, but so many unanswered questions. Like what is the deal with Laura's dad and her life style before? What happened to the eight years lost with our beloved characters. And the things the side characters go through are heart wrenching. This is a love story about a couple who never stood a chance. The flame is barely alive until you reach the end. Then one flicker happens. The a couple of more. I am not sure what will happen with Laura and Seth. But I am ready for the next book and see what will happen next!
