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: Split by J.B. Salsbury

What do you do when you wake up with no memory of what you did last night?

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama, inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from cystic fibrosis.

As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure.

This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start!
1.Live Big because life don't give us enough chances.


2. Take risks, you never know which moment is your last. 


3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you.


4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living.


5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.


Until next time...Bye!

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

One day I came across a title called Soulmate, written by Deepak Chopra and that too a fiction!! So I knew I had to read this and I just picked up this book.
The thing that attracted me to this book was its cover an…
