5* #Review #NewRelease Crown of Lies by @PepperWinters



“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”

Crown of Lies is NOW LIVE!

Full Blurb
“I met the man I wanted. But then he vanished, and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”

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.


Holy Shit!!! Pepper Winters just upped the game for the year. Damn!!

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

This is only my second book by Pepper Winters and I am literally kicking myself. Why have I not read more from this woman! She went above and beyond with this story and her writing its thrilling, seductive and obsessive! You will be turning the pages and if you’re like me when you are really into a book, you keep looking too see how much is left because you don’t want it too end!! Lord I think I need to have a drink after finishing this! So much I want to say...AHHHH

Spoken from Noelle’s (Elle) POV, you see the many struggles that she is facing. This begins on her twelfth birthday. You see the battle she has in her mind at such a young age of what is expected of her. She is going to rule the Belle Elle Empire someday, but is that what she truly wants? She doesn’t know, but her father has taught her at a young age to be successful and she wants to make him happy. He’s all she has now. However, never having any friends, being sheltered, not being a kid you know might come back to haunt her. 

The next age we visit Elle is on her nineteenth birthday. She is fully running the company, but she wants one night. One night of freedom, where no one knows her, where she’s not followed by security and can just be a normal teenager without any responsibility. She sneaks out and ventures into the unknown...only things don’t go as planned. She’s attacked, but a stranger steps in to help her. A man in a hoodie who will remain Nameless. 

Nameless is scary, but yet she feels at peace with him. She knows he won’t hurt her, he’s her knight. All Elle gets is a few hours with him. A few hours that lets her be a teen, who gets to experience a little danger, a first kiss, a first crush. But soon Nameless is ripped away and she has no way of knowing if she’ll ever see him again or even what his real name is. 

He looked arctic and unreadable. He smelled expensive and impenetrable He sounded powerful and untouchable. My worst nightmare wrapped in perfection
Fast Forward three years….Elle meets Penn Everett...Mr. Egotistical, powerful, but holy crap is he gorgeous. Elle can’t stand him, and her body betrays her. He is sending ripples throughout her body making her blood sing and she can’t stand it, she wants him, but will never let him know that! 
Penn is so mysterious and dominating you don’t know what is going through his head. Who he really is or what his end game is? He has a proposition for Elle. I’ll strip you, taste you, devour you. I’ll eat, lick and bite you. And only once you’re begging will I fuck you.
Does she take it and let her body become his? Will she give into his seductive game? 

The moment you said yes, all your choices became void. This is my game now
OMG the intensity of these two is so combustible. You need a fan to cool yourself down. This is filled with so much sexual tension. Penn is such a dirty talker and holy crap possessive. Yet he also comes across as soft and gentle at times. I loved both characters. Two different souls that are pulled together just like magnets. They are opposites and the momentum directs them together. Of course at times it is a push and pull relationship...as I said major sexual tension, but there is a hint of something else. What though? 
Reading the blurb you aren’t quite sure how the story is going to go. I felt that Pepper portrayed Penn wonderfully. He comes across as a jerk at times, but I have a feeling that he is a hero and will make me love him more. Elle is so strong, but yet she’s delicate too. She comes across as naive at times, but boy can she control a boardroom. I loved loved loved her! I could go on and on with these two characters. 
You chased Me, Wrong I hunted You

Lies..Lies..Lies...But are they really lies or Truths that aren’t unveiled yet? Will Elle survive the lies and betrayal? Will Penn confess his wrongs if he has any? GAH so many questions. Crown of Lies is a duet so be prepared that you will have to wait for your answers. However, have no fear because Throne of Truth will be released shortly! YAY!! 

Pepper Winters is the puppet master and we all fall victim to her after reading this. She weaves a story that you think is going to be dark, but surprisingly it isn’t. Its a story filled with questions, a story filled with butterflies in your tummy, a story filled with sexual tension. Crown of Lies is so seductive and spellbinding you won’t want to put it down. Definitely a re-read, and an audio buy for me. Going into a top read for 2017!
