She has a secret.
I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.
I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn't realized how far I could fall or what I'd do to get free.
He has a secret.
I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.
I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.
One secret destroys them.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I took me a few days to read this book, but not because I didn't like it. Pepper Winters' writing takes time to read. I find it so descriptive and expressive. Very few writers (IMO) have the talent to do this.
First, the bad. This book is LONG. I found some of the dialogue to be a little repetitive.
This is another book that I didn't read the synopsis before diving in. I saw 'dark read', 'stand alone' & 'Pepper Winters' and couldn't wait to start reading.
The best piece of the puzzle to this story, I can't share because it would be a HUGE spoiler. Zel and Fox are undeniably drawn to each other , but they are both so utterly broken that there is no way they can possibly survive each other. There are so many facets to each of them. Just when you think you know, a layer is peeled away and you're left feeling emotionally raw.
The second half of this book is so dark and depressing and just heart breaking. It'll bring you to a place that, I promise, you won't like... but keep reading. It's overwhelmingly beautiful in the end that you'll be happy you stuck it out.
I am giving this book 4.25 stars
