You give up everything for your loved ones… Even your freedom…
Criminal. Outlaw. Murderer.
That’s only a few of the names people call me, and all of them are true.
I did the unforgivable. I killed a man in broad daylight.
I did it for her.
I paid my dues, did my time.
Now I’m out and I want her back, no matter the cost.
She hates me, but that won’t stop me from hunting after her.
I need her to be mine again.
And there’s a secret I have to tell …
But everything has its price.
I’m willing to pay.

Note: This story contains disturbing content that may be offensive to some readers.
So, as far as short stories go, this was not even a bad one, I have to say. To be honest, I still have mixed feelings about the book. I know, I know. It is short, so you cannot really prepare the characters, the whole circumstances and yet sometimes it just falls into place so nicely.
I was a little bit disappointed to be fair. I mean, you had to wait for the big secret-reveal until the very end, you were given bits and pieces of information that just confused you and made you a teeeny-tiny frustrated. They were talking in riddles, nobody had a solid character build-up, so yeah. I was disappointed. I love everything that Clarissa writes, but this time… It was just not my story.
Especially the ending. Yeah, it is kinda HEA if you look at it like it. Living like outlaws and marked their whole life hiding somewhere out in Mexico? Yeah, not so much happy for me. I will definitely check out the other novellas in the collaboration though.
