Review: Unforgiven by Willow Winters

Unforgiven Unforgiven by Willow Winters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was so hard to finish this book. So freaking hard!! Why??? Because I HATED Julia. HATED HER!!

I just couldn't find it in myself to like the heroine. She was a complete basket case. She was useless. She was inconsistent. She was not relatable. She was utterly unlikable. What pushed me to continue reading was the hero. Ahhhh... Mason was AWESOME!! The author gave us so much of him. His inner workings, his inner thoughts, his motivations, his passion, his compassion, and his absolute devotion and adoration of the heroine.

Mason was truly a worthwhile hero!!

Now, in my opinion, murder is never okay. Ever. But in the way that this was written it felt like the heroine was absolving her dead husband, who conspired to murder, while condemning this new man that she loved. Her dead husband killed not out of self-defense or for the better good of the world, but because he didn't want his secret to come out whereas the hero killed in order to give the victim of her husband some much-needed justice. I'm not saying it was okay, but since when was her husband the highest measure of virtue? Why was it Mason could never catch a damn break? I'm just baffled by how she could treat him so abhorrently.

Overall this was a decent story. I feel that many parts needed to be fleshed-out and the crux of the story had a bit too many gaps, some of which weren't realistic. I did enjoy how the author played up the suspense of the novel and it lent to the passion that surrounded and made up the hero. I felt like it gave more credence to his story and I think I would have preferred that the story was told from his perspective alone. I'm sorry but he was the only character that was proven relevant to me.

So the question is... Will I read another story by this new-to-me author? Heck yeah. Her writing style was different when compared to anything I've ever read and I found it enjoyable. So reading another story from her will definitely be in my future!
