Review: You Own Me by Shiloh Walker

Rating: ★★★★ stars
Date published: August 4th, 2014
Publisher: Shiloh Walker
Synopsis: It had always been her…

Ten years had passed since the doors slammed shut behind Decker Calhoun, taking away his freedom, but more importantly, locking him away from Elizabeth Waters, the only woman he’d ever loved—the woman he’d given up everything for. 

The day he was sentenced, he’d looked at her and said, No regrets, Lizzie. But he lied, because he did have one. Although he’s been out of jail for three years now, he was a year too late. Lizzie never knew how he felt and just months before he was released, she found somebody else and it’s too late. 

Or maybe not. It seems that Lizzie’s boyfriend wants an open relationship and two can play at that game. Now all Decker has to do is convince Lizzie that he’s the better man…and has been all along.

What I Thought:

I'm a total sucker for unrequited love stories.  When I first read the blurb for this book, I thought, "Oh Decker!"  Of course once I got started, I learned more about Lizzie and Decker's relationship and I fell a little more for the both of them.

It goes without saying, I liked this book.  I wish Decker had spoken up sooner and gotten over the idea she was too good for him.  I do like how he finally decided to step up to bat, so to speak.  I guess love did make Lizzie blind to what an ass her boyfriend was.  I didn't like having to see her go through that pain when she realized what Noel wanted.  I loved the way Decker treated Lizzie; like she was precious.  

I read this book fairly fast and it is hot!  I got what I was looking for and of course you know Decker and Lizzie got together too.  Shiloh Walker did a great job at writing a story I didn't want to end.   I'm always looking forward to her next book.
