From USA Today bestselling author W Winters comes a emotionally-gripping, standalone, romantic suspense.

I didn't need anyone to tell me; I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.

He was a boy I should've been afraid of, and definitely a boy I should've never wanted. No matter how much neither of those statements were true.

From the first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place. And years later, it hasn't softened.

We lived on the same street and went to the same school, although he was a year ahead.

Even so close, he was untouchable.

He was bad news and I was the sad girl who didn't belong.

One night changed everything.

We both had secrets. We both saw the pain in each other's eyes.

The gaze that gave me chills turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of me.

But that didn't change who he was. A man who would take everything from me.

This was another great book by Willow Winters. It's a love story about two people being too scared to admit their feelings for one another after years of loving each from afar. For me, since I've read the series in the order the books were released, the very last page packs a punch to the whole story. It ties it all together. I highly recommend buying it!! There is mystery, suspense, and a love story. Who doesn't love all that in a book?

Wow! Once again Willow Winters never seizes to amaze me with a story so emotionally captivating as Sebastian and Chloe's was. Two people with similar backgrounds who have suffered most of their young lives at the hands of the ones who should love and care for them. There is a connection neither attempts to acknowledge to the other. Yet they both recognize it. It started in high school and is never discussed again. Five years later Chloe is having a hard time dealing with her past and Sebastian sees that she needs support with it. Sebastian has always looked out for Chloe though she seems to not notice it at times. My heart went out for all that Chloe has been through. This is a beautifully written story that will draw you in and keep you wanting to read their story until the end. I liked how we are able to get a look at Carter Cross from the Merciless series, and see what may cause him to be the man he is now. I also enjoyed seeing how Sebastian is slowly revealed to the readers who may think him as a dark and broken man and yet as the story continues you come to understand why he makes the choices he feels he must and that deep down he cares deeply for the people who mean the most to him and will do what he needs to do to help. I would love to see more of Sebastian and Chloe in the coming future

What do you do when your all alone in a town that only wants to swallow you up and spit you out? A town that has taken and keeps taking from you? Chloe is the shy, quiet girl that is barely surviving. Her main goal is to get as far away from Crescent Hills as she can. After the passing of her mother Chloe became bitter towards everyone that didn't help, all who remained quiet, didn't speak up, didn't care. Soon that bitterness came back with a vengeance and Chloe's life once again became hell. Barely surviving her only saving grace is Sebastian, the boy that was always watching and near in the shadows, the boy who was her first kiss. Now a man, Sebastian has become Chloe's guardian angel, there to protect her through her nightmares and self doubt. Sebastian has always been known as the bad boy. The one that everyone feared and didn't dare to mess with. However when it came to Chloe Sebastian was someone else. He always knew that Chloe was meant for him, down to the very first time they met. Growing up he was fascinated by Chloe, keeping her at arms length but close enough to help if she needed him. Lurking in the shadows he watched and kept danger far away from her. Although he knew he was bad news and would only bring danger into her life, when Chloe started to lose her mind, her self worth, he couldn't stay away anymore. Sebastian finally made Chloe his own. The attraction between Chloe and Sebastian was undeniable. It was clear from the start that they were both meant for each other. Both placed on the earth to save the other. I loved how Sebastian's compassion and warmth came through when he was Chloe, how protective of her he was and went to any debts to keep her safe. Also how protective Sebastian was of Carter and the guilt he felt when he couldn't save him from his fate. A Kiss to Tell was a perfect introduction to how Carter from Merciless became who he is, and how a person's future changes with the circumstances in life. I loved this story, well done W. Winters.

Willow just continues to perfect her craft! A Kiss to Tell is full of emotion. The angst, ugh, it was my favorite! I love a book that can make me feel and this story will make you feel everything! The characters were expertly written and the storyline grabbed your attention and never let go. I found myself walking around the house doing chores while still reading. I didn't want to put it down! I highly recommend this story.

A Kiss To Tell is a brand new, standalone romantic suspense from Willow Winters. It’s a haunting, emotional tale of two broken souls. It’s a dual POV, so each character gets to voice their thoughts and feelings, and they have plenty. Life’s been less than kind, leaving them tattered and torn but still somehow, they find the will to persevere, there’s always been a connection between them, but for years they denied it’s existence. Chloe has a lot of past anguish she has to deal with, she’s sweet and shy, but the guilt she carries around with her is weighing her down. Sebastian is a dark troubled character, he’s had a hard life, and even though he loves Chloe, it’s always been from afar until one day, things change. Chloe turns to Sebastian for support in her time of need. He thinks he’s not enough for her but she doesn’t and they are finally forced to face the truth. Of course, with this being a Willow Winters tale, nothing is quite as simple as it seems and there’s a lot going on. This is a twisty, turny haunting tale, with a plot full of suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. But, you will love it too. I for one did, and look forward to more from this amazing author.

At the pace that new books are coming my way I have two choices... Read faster or stop sleeping... And guess what I choose to do? I did both. Lol Willow Winters has been in my booklife for quite some time and each book drove me crazy but in the good way. Her writing is hot and sexy, forbbiden and super intense. Each book made me feel things and see things differently. Just give her a chance and find out for yourself. A Kiss To Tell is her latest release and tells the stories of Sebastian and Chloe. Sebastian had a bad childhood and that made him the typical bad boy with a huge reputation. He knows what to expect from life but sometimes we can't predict our future. Chloe had endured so much pain that made her insecure, sad and sometimes afraid. She just wants to be invisible and forget but sometimes our pasts come to haunt us, no matter what we want. When these two meet, a few years back, and kissed each other they can't imagine the impact that single gesture will have on their futures... And I'm saying nothing more. This book was awesome. The darkness surrounding it made reading this story so much more intense. The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and powerful. The darkness, the suspense, crime were very present as well as love, hope and second chances. Reading this book, due to its suspense, made it impossible to stop. Finishing one chapter I needed to start the next one right away because the suspense was killing me. It was an amazing read and I want more. Sweet baby Jesus... Willow you rock woman. This was another great reading and it was amazing to hear from Carter, to know how everything started... That just made me want Breathless to come super quick. Can't wait for more. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Sebastian and Chloe are two broken and wounded people that will tear out your heart as you read their story. The desperation and the depths of their despair as they try to get out of their environment in one piece is such an emotional read, it was truly heartbreaking. Although he doesn't do it very often, Bastian showing his tender side makes him more human and likable. There is no doubt it is due to Chloe. Their story is filled with drama and darkness, but they find a way to make it work and find their happiness. Another great read by W. Winters, it is a 5 star review from me.

Chloe and Sebastian, both a little broken, are trapped in dead end lives. Sebastian has loved Chloe for years but in order to protect her from his unsavory life, he has stayed away. When circumstances finally force him to reveal his true feelings to her, he realizes he loves her too much to ever let her go. Chloe knows Sebastian is a dangerous man but he has always had her heart. Overwhelmed with fear and guilt for events of both past and present, she only finds peace within his arms. A Kiss to Tell is a dark, emotional romance and very compelling. It has a lot of drama and suspense with some surprises, including an introduction to a very young and sympathetic Carter Cross who goes on to star in the aptly named Merciless book series. The writing is great and although I would have liked a more detailed finish to Chloe and Sebastian's story, the love these characters have for each other really shines through. I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.

Sebastian Black is your next book boyfriend!!! Be forewarned you will lose sleep from not being able to out this book down. I loved this book! Sebastian Black is the guy legends are made of. He isn't a good guy and he never claims to be. But he loves with everything he has. My heart broke for poor Chloe Rose. I loved that this book gave you more of a insight to Carter. I do hope to hear more about Sebastian and Chloe in Carter's next installment.

Not the story I was expecting but still sooo good. I love the little peak into the Cross brothers past that we haven't gotten much of until now. I'm looking forward to what is next in the series and hoping Sebastian and Chloe make an appearance. This is my honest opinion of this title

Once again Willow Winters amazes me! I praise Willow’s ability to write such deep, gut-wrenching stories that hit you right in the chest.

A great read and a look into the beginnings of Carter’s life from Merciless as the story is told with two main characters that were in his past, Sebastian and Chloe. The story revolves around these two, Sebastian’s obsession with Chloe, keeping her at arms length and protecting her while Chloe secretly holds a crush on Sebastian, the boy in school who was her first kiss and she is the only one who isn’t afraid of him. Their story is dark with Chloe’s nightmares and all the happenings going on in the evil town she is stuck in and it revolves around her mother’s death as well as all the bad things that Sebastian has done to get his reputation. We also meet a young Carter and get a glimpse into his life with Sebastian who took him under his wing and tried to protect him and treated him like family. A read with steam, murder, mayhem, secrets, death, and drugs. I liked these two and enjoyed their story and I love how this author writes these types of stories with dark themes and lots of angst. I was a little disappointed with the ending as it left a huge question that I would have loved an answer to....does Sebastian ever tell Chloe his secret ? But the ending does a great lead into Merciless and answers the question of what was Carter like when he was younger before the incident that changed his life. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

I can not even begin to describe how I felt about this book. It is one of the best by Willow Winters. Every time I read her books they get better and better. I think the way this book ties into the Cross boys is smart writing. I love that it gives you insight on the one brother. I can’t wait to see how everything will tie back in together. I recommend reading this book and all Willow books.

Always around one another but weren’t together in their lives, all changed after one kiss. Love the title, love the cover, the plot, the dynamic in characters and personalities, and ohhh the tugging of the heart strings. I enjoyed seeing the younger version of Carter pop up in the story (from this author’s other book, Merciless). I’m hoping theres a part two to this book because it didn’t wrap everything up for me with everything that was going on and the secrets that were there.

She has done it again!! This is Chloe and Sebastian's story. Two people who have known each other since childhood. Separately they are lost,, but together they are found. They are the salve to each other's pain and they are unstoppable as long as they are together. This story has darkness, lots of angst, heart wrenching pain, secrets and questioning if there are really coincidences. These two mesh so perfectly and they won't let the other fall. The chemistry they have has been simmering for years and it finally explodes. You will get to see Carter during a crucial time in his life and how much Sebastian looks out for those he cares for. This book had me hooked from the beginning and I could not out it down. Willow has a way of writing the stories that pull you in and make you feel like you are right there. You will laugh and cry with these characters. This storyline just flows smoothly and I highly recommend this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. Wow, this book was absolutely amazing. Sabastian and Chloe were off the charts sizzling. This book is emotional, intense, dark, suspenseful, read that you will not be able to put down. These two have been intertwined since high school and that kiss that happened between them. They are both broken souls who need each other, but Chole always believed that he was out of reach. Chloe knew she should stay away and Sebastian knew he would ruin her and tried to stay away, but just can’t seem to do it. Little does Chloe know that the one kiss they shared bound her to Bastian forever, he would be her protector, take care of her, they belong to each other. So many feels with their story, it is heart wrenching, epic love story that will leave you reeling and wanting more. I loved it and highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed. No spoilers here, this is a must read, wow, just wow is all I can say.

A bit of a thriller, a bit of a mystery and love story with heat.  That's what A Kiss to Tell by Willow Winters is for me. This story of Sebastian and Chloe (love the name! Hee hee...) is riveting. Chloe is a victim of her environment.  She tries to preserve with the life she has. But deep down she longs for more, she longs for better, she longs for Sebastian. Sebastian too is a victim of his environment.  He thinks he doesn't deserve more, doesn't deserve better, doesn't deserve Chloe. He's been watching over her since they were children.  He wants to be more, but doesn't know how. This story is a page turner.  I loved where my mind went when I was reading.  The nightmares, the paranoia.  I was thinking one way and Willow flipped the script! I love the fact that it kept me guessing until the end. This story is a stand alone, but there is a touch of her other books in this story.  It was intriguing!

Chloe Rose and Sebastian what a story they share growing up together on the same street their lives seem destined to intertwine. Sebastian is strong and determined to have Chloe and to save her no matter the cost to himself. Their story keeps you turning page after page until the end, or is it? We also meet Carter when he was a young and gentle soul just trying to care for his mother and younger brothers as he is Sebastian’s best friend. Sebastian is mixed up with Romano a thug who doesn’t have Sebastian’s best interest in mind as Sebastian tries to stay on Romano’s good side. Chloe Rose is haunted by her mother’s brutal death and the list she wrote of people she thinks deserve to suffer for that death. This is another great book by Willow Winters. I can’t get enough of her stories and this one was no exception.

The love they share is beautiful even amongst their troubling pasts and the mistakes they make along the way. Amazingly written and beautifully told. Willow never disappoints!

Omg from the gorgeous cover to the pages in between, this book was amazing. LOVED every single part of it. A Kiss to Tell had me hooked from the first page and I did not want to put it down. Fingers crossed there will be another book about Bastian and Chloe, would love to find out how the end up.  Willow you blow me away with your writing it is simply addicting and your books are page turners and need to be read by everyone!!!

Wow!!! Oh my damn!!! The angst and longing can be felt through the book. Sebastian and Chloe have chemistry off the rocks. It's told in different Povs, no cheating, but it does end with a question. This book has passion and angst but also an emotional connection. To be continued. I highly recommend this book.
