When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.
But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.
I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.
Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.
Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.
If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
The way the first part of the duet ended had my jaw hanging open and begging for me. Thank goodness Written With You picked up right where things left off because there was no way I could let that bombshell go!
It was only a matter of time before the secret Hadley was keeping came to light and when it did, the earth shook beneath Caven's feet. He was a mix of angry and sad and overwhelmed. And he wasn't sure how he was going to break it to sweet Rosie. Talk about a heartbreaking sacrifice. The things that Willow did for Hadley, for Rosie for Caven were so selfless that I couldn't help but hope something good would happen for her.
Mini spoiler alert....things got worse before they got better. But when Willow was threatened, it was all Caven could do to keep his wits about him. There was a lot of soul searching, more confessions and even more forgiveness. Just when I thought things were going to be alright, that they had all settled into their new normal, the other shoe dropped again.
Oh my goodness. Aly Martinez, I hereby dub thee QUEEN OF THE PLOT TWIST! I didn't see that coming in the slightest. I was just as blindsided as Caven and Willow. My heart was racing and I was reading as fast as my eyes would let me and it still wasn't fast enough. Written With You gave me emotional whiplash. I went from shocked to upset to happy to fearful in the span of a few chapters. But that ending, it was the kind of happy that put a smile on my heart. It was what that they all deserved after the hell they had been through.
