BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 

However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 

Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches. 
Including her. 

Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 

Until her past collides with her present. 
And it’s her turn to lie. 

To everyone…including herself. 




5++ "Do You Trust Me?" Reading Owls


This book OMG OMG OMG *jumping excitedly*. What the hell did I read? It's just amazing. No words can explain what I am feeling right now. Crown Of Lies has confused the ever-living fuck out of me.

So Pepper Winters:- The Queen Of Dark Romance has done it again This book is my undoing. Pepper Winters has written a book full of mystery, angst, suspense, romance, with so many twists and turns. This book just sweeps you of your feet and that ending just leaves you hanging in the air.


"we're all a little corrupt doing our best to fit into the world that's broken but still demands perfection" 

Crown Of Lies introduces us to Noelle Charlston(Elle)- the heiress of Belle Elle.She has everything, a doting and loving father, money, a successful and well planned future, everything except her freedom. Belle Elle is her empire and she is completely owned by it. The story begins with a 12 year old girl trying to adjust to her lifestyle as a heiress and then takes a time leap and we meet 19 year old Elle who craves a normal life, who wants to love, kiss and lose her virginity like normal girls.

On her 19th birthday, she decides to go on an adventure, to discover the streets of New York but who knew, a little innocent adventure could change her life. On her little adventure she steps into a dark situation and is saved by a man in hoody whom she named 'nameless'. She is insanely attracted to him and feels that their is some connection which binds them together.


But then her knight in the shining armour vanishes and she is left all alone. She tries to find the man who has owned her heart but in vain.

“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanishes" 

The story takes us three years ahead and she meets a man named Penn Everett *holy hotness*.

He is a complete opposite of nameless and Elle hates him at first sight.

"Thieves can become saints. Saints can become thieves. Most of us deserve a second chance." 

Penn is dark and dangerous, his life is an unsolved mystery. He wears lies as his second skin. He has animalistic magnetism and is extremely confident*fangirling*. penn is a complete egomaniac and Elle hates his guts but nevertheless they are insanely attracted towards each other, the sexual tension is off the charts. Penn wants to own her, completely consume her, control her. He wants her body and soul.


"I'll strip you, taste you, devour you. I'll eat, lick, and bite you. And only once you're begging will I f#ck you." 

He wants to own her and possess her, she'll not let him. She is determined to unfold the secrets and discover the truth behind his lies. She'll make him remove his mask. Towards the end, when you think that everything is going to be fine, the author drops a bomb*utter shock*. It's one hell of a plot twist. I wanted to smash my head but that ending *holy goodness* has left me utterly confused.


I just loved this book. Its alluring and an ultimate page flipper. It's dark and light. Its sexy and sensual. The storytelling is awesome, you'll just lose yourself in the book. That ending has left me with so many questions*ugh*. Eagerly waiting for the second book.


This review so far was the most difficult because I was just not able to express my feelings in words. Dearest author you have successfully made me speechless*cheers*.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 

The plan …
