Description
The second novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy wraps up an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.   The truth hurts, they say—and my pain cuts deep. While I was falling for Ethan, he was deceiving me the entire time. He held a huge secret, protected by his lies. When I discovered what he was hiding, the truth shook my world, threatening to ruin us forever. Ruin me. But I soon realized that what we share can’t be destroyed.   The connection between us is too strong. It always has been. I can’t deny him any longer. And I can’t deny my truth: I’m in love with Ethan.   I don’t want to let him go.   While we’re trying our best to make this relationship work, other forces are fighting against us. My family, who wants to keep me safe. The media obsessed with my tragic past. The public that feeds off of it. Even Ethan’s father—the man who nearly destroyed me all those years ago. He’s doing his best to finish the job.   Despite my love for Ethan, the doubts creep in, clouding my mind. Is he worth the pain? Will our love survive, or will we have no choice but to end it—end us—once and for all?Praise for Never Let You Go   “As a reader, this relationship shouldn’t work even though it has to work. It’s only because of Ms. Murphy’s skill in delicately addressing survival from sexual assault and abuse that we find the capacity to heal through touch and love.”Heroes and Heartbreakers   “Much like the first book, this story was an emotional roller-coaster ride that never really let up. But that’s what made the story so fantastic and engaging.”—Emilie’s Book World   “A story that will grip you, pull you in, and keep you immersed til the end . . . an emotional and sweet story that will stay with me for years to come.”—Read-Love-Blog   “A dramatic and beautiful and frightening story.”—Fictional Candy   “Murphy nailed it with this one for sure. . . . Katherine and Ethan. Katie and Will. They are such a dynamic couple. Everything they have been through makes their bond tight.”—Mommy’s a Book Whore   Praise for Monica Murphy’s 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“A powerful story of friendship, trauma, coping and betrayal. The characters jump off the page into real life and will have readers gasping and feeling every emotion that they go through. Another amazing book to add to Murphy’s already stellar library!”RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars)   “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   “Murphy imbues these characters with genuineness and plausibility. . . . [Readers] will look forward to the promised sequel.”Publishers Weekly

Never Let You Go
fullDescription
The second novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy wraps up an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.
 
The truth hurts, they say—and my pain cuts deep. While I was falling for Ethan, he was deceiving me the entire time. He held a huge secret, protected by his lies. When I discovered what he was hiding, the truth shook my world, threatening to ruin us forever. Ruin me. But I soon realized that what we share can’t be destroyed.
 
The connection between us is too strong. It always has been. I can’t deny him any longer. And I can’t deny my truth: I’m in love with Ethan.
 
I don’t want to let him go.
 
While we’re trying our best to make this relationship work, other forces are fighting against us. My family, who wants to keep me safe. The media obsessed with my tragic past. The public that feeds off of it. Even Ethan’s father—the man who nearly destroyed me all those years ago. He’s doing his best to finish the job.
 
Despite my love for Ethan, the doubts creep in, clouding my mind. Is he worth the pain? Will our love survive, or will we have no choice but to end it—end us—once and for all?

        April 4, 2016
        Fans of Never Tear Us Apart will be pleased that this sequel fulfills the promise of Murphy’s decidedly unconventional contemporary love story, set in an unspecified part of the U.S. Years before the story opens, serial killer Aaron Monroe imprisoned young Katie Watts. Aaron’s son, Will, saved Katie from his father and then disappeared. As an adult, Will renamed himself Ethan Williams and manipulated Katie, now called Katherine, into falling in love with him. It’s been a few months since Katherine discovered her new lover’s true identity and kicked him out of her life, appalled by his deceit. Along comes ratings-hungry TV reporter Lisa Swanson, who had once gained fame by exploiting Katherine. Now she’s skating on the edge of journalistic ethics by attempting to arrange a meeting between Katherine and Aaron, who’s currently on death row. Inevitably, Katherine and Ethan/Will are drawn back into each other’s lives. Tension mounts as the charismatic but broken lovers struggle to heal each other while dodging media attention. The superior characterization and compelling plot are enough to outweigh the awkward prose and clunky structure. Agent: Kimberly A. Whalen, Trident Media Group.

        The second title in Murphy's Never series (Never Tear Us Apart, 2016) starts with Ethan and Katie trying to move on from their failed relationship. After learning the truth about Ethan, Katie isn't sure that she can ever trust him again, and her family would like her to end all contact with him. When Ethan's father (Katie's abductor and rapist) claims in a death-row interview that Ethan was a willing accomplice, Katie has to set the record straight. This brings her back together with Ethan, but are they strong enough to withstand the disapproval of everyone around them? Murphy doesn't shy away from the taboo in telling this heartbreaking story of forbidden love.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
