He holds a power over me like no one else ever could.
Maybe it’s because my heart begs to beat in time with his.
Maybe it’s because my body bows to his and his alone.
Maybe it’s because he thought he loved me before he even laid eyes on me.
He thought wrong, it wasn’t me he thought he loved, and nothing has made me suffer like that little secret has. He thought I belonged to him, but he was wrong. It was never supposed to be me.
Our memories are deceiving, but I know what I want now.
What I need more than anything.
I won’t rest until he’s as much mine as I am his.
It’s always been him.
There is a part of me that wants to hate Aria and Carter’s story. A big piece that knows their love isn’t healthy. But, the bigger part of me loves them. Loves how toxic they are. Loves that she tames part of his wild and he releases part of hers. Endless was an explosive conclusion to the Merciless saga, and I am eagerly anticipating more books in this world, mostly so I can back in on Aria and Carter.
Aria seemed to finally be coming into her own in the previous book, Breathless, but she really showed the world she was more than the terrified, sheltered girl we’d first met in Merciless. For the most part, she was still very submissive when it came to Carter, but she had a spine of steel when it mattered most and she easily held command in a situation she would have never been able to before her time with Carter. Aria has grown and evolved so much in this series; I sometimes wonder if she would recognize her former self at all if confronted with it.
Carter came to some incredible revelations in this book. There were moments he seemed almost human – kind, even – something beyond the brutal dictator he’d been throughout the rest of this series. His moods were as mercurial as ever, but with the help of a few well-chosen words from trusted confidants he was able to see the truth within his soul and know how to tend to and express the emotions in a meaningful way.
Endless was rife with tension and emotion. There was so much on the line at the end of Breathless and with the new information that came to light in Endless, there was only more. Ms. Winters added so many more threads of intrigue into this world; I’m sure we’ll be unraveling them all for some time. I’m happy that the threads that were introduced helped Carter and Aria to find a place where they could find love and acceptance in one another, but I am eagerly anticipating what those revelations will mean for these characters and the rest of the brothers going forward.
Endless is the fourth and final book in W. Winter’s Merciless saga. These books are no standalones and must be read for cohesion. There are a couple of other books, Possessive and A Kiss to Tell, that are a huge part of this world and I would suggest reading before starting this series. Endless is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Aria and Carter.
Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!
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!
