Scarred - Willow Winters

This book picks up where we left off in [b:Damaged|36177314|Damaged (Sins and Secrets Series of Duets Book 3)|Willow Winters|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1504486234s/36177314.jpg|57707854], Evan behind bars and Kat learning that she's pregnant and alone. In some ways, it felt like I was in the middle of a superhero tale - where the selfless hero denies his love in order to protect her from the evil-doers who will harm her if they know it will torture the un-hurtable super.

In this case however, they're all just flesh and blood humans. And the bad guys already know that Kat is Evan's weak spot - separated or not. This was one of my main nits with this book. Subverted somewhat by the protection she was given at several times in the story, but IMO, not quite enough for my tastes.

Kat and Evan kept doing the same dance throughout. Evan can't stay away, Kat keeps giving in. And I use "giving in" for a reason. I really wanted her to have more backbone. I was also pretty peeved at her for some other stuff that happened, because wishy-washy much? kissing Jacob

I'm not saying the book isn't good, because it is. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, but at times it was frustrating. I don't mind red herrings, character dances, lies for safety sake, and secret love-fests, I just wish these two books were condensed into one - or there was a little less of the push/pull keep-away dance.

On the bright side, and yes there is one, I love Willow Winters' work, and her writing is what brings me back for more.

I give this one 3 "instances of stumbling onto evidence" stars
