Perfect for readers of Colleen Hoover, Jay Crownover, and K. A. Tucker, the first novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy kicks off an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.   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.   My father. Advance praise for Never Tear Us Apart   "All the best parts of romance and betrayal . . . I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."--New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover "A powerful story that left me raw yet hopeful."--USA Today bestselling author K. A. Tucker "The characters...will have readers gasping and feeling every emotion that they go through." -- RT Book Reviews Top Pick, January 2016 "Monica Murphy has written a compelling and emotional love story of two severely broken people, each of whom can be healed only by the other." -- Booklist Reviews From the Trade Paperback edition.
