From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

I saw her from across the bar.
My bar. My city. Everything in that world belonged to me.
She stood out from the crowd like she was looking for someone to blame for her pain.

That night, I felt the depths of my mistakes. I felt my scars. With a single glance, I knew her touch would take it all away. I craved it more than anything.

I knew she would be a tempting, beautiful mistake.
One I would make again and again... even if it cost me everything.

Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

Left me hanging by my fingernails...GAH! I so need book 2 now!!! Jase is a bad boy through and through. Bethany is hurting, and she needs answers. These two had me from hello. I loved how the story flowed - the angst, the emotions, the desire and arousal that burned through the pages! I can't even begin to y tell you how much I was aching for more at the end. And oh, that ending... like I said, fingernails... ❤

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Willow Winters provided me an ARC for a giveaway I was hosting on on Instagram so I asked if she would provide me a copy. Omg, this book was sooooo good! I finished this book feeling drunk in love with Jase Cross. Talk about a major book hangover! Bethany Fawn is suffering from the tragic murder of her older sister Jenny. When she doesn’t get the answers she wants regarding her sister’s death she takes matters into her own hands. She goes looking for answers at Jase Cross’ club. There he sees Bethany on his security monitors and is intrigued. This story is full of mystery, suspense and hotness! I loved their characters. Beth is strong and confident even though internally she fears Jase’s dominant & powerful persona. I love that you get a glimpse of the sweetness Jase can be. “I don’t want you to be alone either.” Their chemistry is so sexy!! The fire between Jase and Beth is scorching! “With every thrust against his bedroom wall, he forced air from my lungs. He took it, he made it his. The air, my body...and more.” To cure this book hangover I really need to get my hands on book 2! Willow leaves us hanging in this book I am so pleased to have discovered Willow’s books last year. She is an exceptional writer and definitely knows how to keep her readers hooked! I loved this book! 5+ stars for Jase & Beth’s story! (Darlene Palma)

Ahhh! Willow Winters has done it again folks! She has captured our hearts and fueled our lust only to leave us begging for more! A Single Glance was heart pounding and sensual! I have been waiting for Jase to get his story and I’m loving it! I have to admit I may love him most out of the Cross brothers! He’s battling with himself trying to learn from his past, helpless again the beautiful brunette that has stormed into his world. Bethany has broken me. I feel for her so much, everything she’s been through. I just want her to have peace with her sister and for this thing with Jace to to change both their lives! I loved everything about this book! I totally said some pretty nasty words about that cliffhanger ending! I’m convinced Willow enjoys torturing us! Gah! Cannot wait to find out what’s to come! Although A Single Glance is a stand-alone I recommend you read all the books that tie the cross brother together! I received an Arc in exchange for an honest review.

The Cross brothers saga continues and now it’s Jase’s turn for his story with Bethany, a woman who wants answers to her sister’s death and the only clue she has is the Cross name and The Red Room. When Jase goes to see her, she turns on him and instead of killing her, he is intrigued and offers her a way out of her sister’s debt. Beth is torn but follows through on the contract because she wants answers...will he give them to her. A steamy read with intense and emotional scenes as the two grapple for control. A fiery woman and a deadly man, what a combination and their story is not over yet...there is more to come with a cliffhanger that makes you go....NO !!!! *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

OMFG!! This book just slayed me. I have been waiting for Jase’s story since the beginning and I was not let down. Jase and Bethany’s story is one filled with angst, heartbreak, lies, secrets, lust/love and of course, some twists and turns that just make your jaw drop. Willow took me on one emotional rollercoaster ride and I loved it. Both Jase and Bethany have big losses in their lives. Neither wants to admit that they need each other. Jase knows he should leave Bethany alone, but he can’t. Their chemistry is off the charts and they are the missing piece that they are both missing. They complete each other. I was hooked from the very first sentence and DID NOT want to put it down. Once you start, you won’t want to put it down. I have wanted Jase since Possessive and started falling for him in the Merciless series. In this book, he stole my heart. WARNING: Willow’s books are like Pringles. Once you start reading her books, you can’t stop. You will want to read more and more of them. This is my favorite book so far, and I believe this is her best so far. I can’t wait to read the next one. I highly recommend reading this book, and if you haven’t read the ones before that, I recommend reading them also. You will not regret reading it. She takes you on a dark, dangerous, and twisting story. She writes it so well, it feels like you are right there. It is fabulously written.

A Single Glance is Jase Cross's story. I like him so much better than his brother Carter! He's hot, he's sexy, and he's dangerous but he doesn't give off that cruel vibe like Carter. In the opening of the book, Bethany's sister has been killed and she is searching for answers. This leads her to Jase's bar. She is stirring things up and Jase needs to put a stop to it which in turn leads to their first intense meeting which is both electric and jaw-dropping. Since Bethany and Jase both want the same thing - to find out who murdered Bethany's sister and why - they reach an agreement that ultimately blows up at then end of this book, leaving us with a cliffhanger. Willow Winters is an excellent storyteller and the writing is great, as always. I can't wait for the next book in this very steamy, unbelievably hot romance. I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.

I loved it! I have been waiting for Jase’s story ever since I finished the last Cross read and it certainly did not disappoint! Jase and Bethany’s story is a great addition to this series, fast-paced with loads of drama and suspense. The chemistry is off the charts hot and I can’t wait for more!

A Review of A Single Glance by Willow Winters Jase and Bethany - 5 Stars This is the third Cross brother and his story. I just love the way Willow writes these books where they are all interconnected, but you can read them in any order you like, but if you want to read the brothers out of order, make sure you read ALL the books for each brother in order (if that makes sense). Definitely a book that you will want to read ... it will keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering which way the roller coaster is going to go this time. ********** **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

Wow, just wow. This is the first book I read by W Winters and her words starting straight from the Prologue kept me hostage till I got to the very end, and one that ends on a CLIFFHANGER! This book was intense, mysterious, suspenseful and sexy as hell! It's definitely a dark read but one that has captivated me and kept my attention with every detail. Jase Cross is just *fanning self with hands* and Bethany is an assertive and strong heroine. I love a good crime mystery read and this for sure gives you that plus more. The ending got me going like WTF?! I just realized this will be a series so I cannot wait for the next one! This was amazing and definitely recommend it to those that love a crime, enemies to lovers, sexy story.

I’ve been waiting for Jase’s story since we met him in Daniel’s book and then got to know him better in Carter’s story. Wow! He definitely didn’t disappoint. Jase is a multi layered, super sexy, amazing man, who happens to be a cold blooded killer when protecting his family. Bethany purposely falls into his world to try and make some sense out of the chaos in her life and gets caught up with Jase. These two people are so wrong for each other but at the same time so right. Ms. Winters has once again given us an exciting, heart wrenching, oh so sexy read! Jase is everything I imagined he would be and even more. Thank you Ms. Winters for these fabulous characters, their story was worth the wait.

A Single Glance by Willow Winters was one emotional roller coaster of ups and downs from the beginning to very end. Jase Cross has met his match. Bethany Fawn stole his heart with just a glance and captured his soul with her fire and fiery temper. She became his cailin tine. Bethany wants answers, she wants to find the people that murdered her sister and make them pay. What she didn't expect was having to repay a debt her sister owed the Cross brothers. Jase is ready to collect but for selfish reasons. He just can't get Bethany out of his head and his heart. Although Jase and Bethany don't want to admit it, they need each other. As Bethany starts repaying her sisters debt, she finds herself falling for Jase. However, doubt lingers causing Bethany to question Jase and the truth. Who is behind the death of Bethany's sister? Why does the Cross name always seem to be present when things are revealed? Can Jase and Bethany be more? Wow Willow, what a story you have weaved for our Jase and Bethany. Just when I thought that there couldn't be a better Cross boy story Willow goes and writes A Single Glance. Truly a remarkable story that I WANT MORE OF!!! Jase is raw, lethal and unapologetic but GOD is he real and vulnerable around Bethany. Bethany is one fierce, complicated and loyal woman who just wants to find her peace and love.

Beth is on a mission out the truth about what happened to her sister and that search has sent her to The Red Room where she has caught the attention of Jace, the owner. Jace is one of the infamous Cross brothers and he is drawn to the fiery beauty and the things they have in common will rock both their worlds. Jace is sexy, dominant and will stop at nothing to protect those he loves while Beth is strong, determined and feisty and together they are explosive. This story takes you on a suspense filled adventured filled with action, twists and hot chemistry that lead up to an epic cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more of Jace and Beth.

Willow Winters has done it again. This book is intense. It will completely capture every emotion and send you senseless to the end. Speaking of the end, it will crash into you without applying brakes. I had to take breaks throughout the story, just to remember to breathe. So many feels and so many twists kept taking my breathe away. A Single Glance will capture you and not let go. Jase is the ultimate bad guy. As with most bad guys, he has some heavy baggage. Bethany is in a fight or flight survival mode. Jase wants to control her and Bethany wants answers. These two are hot, explosive and so addicting. I cannot wait for more!
Fictionalluv More than 1 year ago
Brace yourselves - 'A Single Glance' will have you reaching out for that o' sheet handle!! Holy mother of all things fictional!! Folks- This book, is an intense, provocative, plot twisted, messy, break your heart in two kind of read. The characters just scream they need to tell you their story! Willow continues to amaze me with the stories, and worlds she creates. Jase and Bethany's torrent of pain, lust, and connection - I am all in and ready for more! I have a new favorite Cross brother and story!
Rachalrenea More than 1 year ago
The beginning of Jase and Bethany's story will have you captivated by the first chapter. Jase is a powerful yet thoughtful and caring man. He is exactly what Bethany needs and she for him. Bethany is a troubled young woman who has been dealt an unfair hand in life. Their love for one another is endearing and sweet. I cannot wait to see what Willow has in store for these two amazing characters. I am hooked!

5 CAPTIVATING STARS!! I was captivated with Jase and Bethany's story all the way through. This story had me on the edge of my seat with all the unknown, sexiness and suspense. I can't wait to get more of their story soon, I am so engrossed in these two. W. Winters is phenomenal in her storytelling and always a 1-Click for me.
AngelaT520 More than 1 year ago
Gahhh!!!!!!! What a way to leave a person wanting more! Willow has done it again with another amazing book that gives you everything! Against, sadness, emotional, wanting to throw stuff. Jase is everything I was expecting & more. If you haven’t started reading about the Cross brother’s you should!!!!!

Captivating new couple I swear. I finished this book and wanted to slam my reader against the wall. Now I'm waiting on pins and needles to see how this ends. This installment is another story in the Cross saga. Finally, we get Jase's story. Well, part of it, but so worth it. The chemistry between him and Bethany is... fiery. Bethany is a strong character and the perfect match to Jase's iron-clad facade. There's so much teasing here - between the characters, between the author and reader. Ms. Winters known how to tell a tale to get you hooked and make it tough to stop turning that virtual page. Aside from the chemistry and building connection between the characters, there's the continuing storyline of the Cross family and their turf war. And yes, I'm itching to see how this ends. /I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. This did not affect my opinion of the book or content of my review./

This is the first book in the series that focuses on Jase Cross and Bethany Fawn. It is just book one, so be prepared for the cliffhanger! Right from page one, you know this book is going to be intense! The love/hate, push/pull between these two keeps you on edge and engaged. I sympathized and liked both these characters. Jase is intense, wounded, guilt-ridden and feels undeserving of love. All of that can not stop the consuming desire he feels for Bethany. Bethany is in a spiral of pain, anger and guilt. She is torn between her quest for answers and vengeance and the attraction and need she feels for Jase. And she refuses to admit or surrender to those feelings. When these two come together sparks fly and the kinky scenes get very hot. The emotional turmoil, suspense, drama, angst, danger and heartache have hardly gotten started and I'm already nervous about what will happen! So deliciously good! I can't wait for the next book!

Wow! Just wow! This is an amazing story that just begins to touch the surface of what is to come with Jase and Bethany. Two broken people brought together when Bethany goes looking for answers to questions about her sister's death at Jase's club and what really happened. Jase takes one look at Bethany and can see her pain and can't deny the attraction he has to her. Bethany somehow believes Jase if not one of the other Cross brothers either had something to do with her sister Jenny's death or knows who did. Jase comes up with a way to answer Beth's question while also satisfying his need for Beth. Willow Winters has a way of pulling you into a story and keeping you wanting to read more and to really feel what the characters are experiencing. Jase and Beth may seem as if they are enemies (what Beth seems to believe) but the chemistry between them is undeniable. Both have no problems accepting it. This book is full of suspense, mystery, lies, an intense connection and at times even some trust. It will pull you in from the beginning and leave you wanting to know what happens next. Be warned this book ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you wondering what just happened? I can not wait to find out what will happen next and read more of Jase and Beth's story. I thought Carer Cross couldn't be topped. Looks like Jase may just steel the show!

Prior to reading this book, W Winters was an author whose name and work I'd seen in passing, whether it book sites like Goodreads and BookBub or online e-retailers. I had yet to read anything of hers because when I did take notice of her, she already had an ongoing series, and I'm not a fan of jumping in the middle of series that are already a few books in. And then A Single Glance came along. The blurb intrigued me and I decided it was the best time to finally see if the author's writing merited the hype I'd read online. My verdict? Yes, indeed, she deserves it. I'm not saying she gets nothing but rave reviews--no author does--but a vast majority of the reviews out there do point out her talent for putting her proverbial pen to paper and for having her readers keep coming back for more. Clueless me had no idea Jase and Beth's story was part of a larger universe. A quick peek at the author's Amazon page gave me a reading order that I now have jotted down on one of my notepads. But here's the thing: this book actually works as a standalone because while I was curious about one of Jase's brother and the guy's fiancée, this was very much all about Jase and Beth and the intrigue swirling around them. Winters knows how to weave the sort of tale that has you sitting up straight and paying attention, and while I love books that I can lean back and relax with, I live for those that have me on the edge. This book? It was...everything. There's a cliffhanger, but I'm going to use the time wisely by catching up on this insanely addictive universe A Single Glance is part of. Five stars. ♥

MEMORABLE - BREATHTAKING - FIERY PASSIONATE ROMANCE When you open a story by this author prepare yourself for the unexpected. A SINGLE GLANCE is a stunner of a story that combines heart-rending moments, anticipation, astonishing moments, doubt, trust, scenes that leave you breathless, and jaw-dropping sensuous passionate romance. Thought-provoking read that held my interest until the last word! SUPERB deep feeling page-turner. Jase Cross is a man with a plan - Bethany wants answers. Both characters are praise-worthy and together they are phenomenal. I sighed at the end wanting more. Relishing this read on a voluntary basis I reviewed a pre-release copy.
