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.

This Book Nerd Says:
If the synopsis doesn’t hook you (IT ABSOLUTELY HOOKED ME) then the story will. I couldn’t put it down once I started. It’s a story that launches from something so very dark but the darkness never overwhelms the story. It’s fixed firmly on Will and Katie… their story of survival. It’s a story that has continued eight years after Katie endures the worst kind of darkness and depravity at the hand of a serial killer.
Katie and Will’s relationship is so profound. I found myself so emotionally invested that I wanted to interject every time something or someone threatens to pull them apart. Their bond may be inexplicable to others in their lives, but to me, the reader… it was one of the deepest bonds and one of the most touching love stories I’ve read lately.
Don’t be fooled. There is a love story here. Pure and raw. Blossoming despite everything that could suffocate it…
In the same line as the ripped from the headlines stories and tv shows, NEVER TEAR US APART takes us on a completely fresh route. Instead of focusing solely on the what happened during… we are taken to the what happens after. The changes Katie goes through and the way the world around her perceives her and how it makes the way Will treats her stand out even further.
It’s love and betrayal despite love kind of story. But it’s also a story of survival and quite simply put… living.
I am desperately waiting for book 2 now.
