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.
Buy Links - Destroyed
I knew the minute I started this book I would be so consumed and there was no going back. Destroyed is by far one of the most amazing stories I have read this year. Pepper Winters never ceases to amaze and astonish me with her impeccable writing.
Destroyed had me drowning in the pages till the very end. I couldn’t put it down. I have never read a book that had me so in tuned with it like this one did. My emotions were on overdrive the whole entire book.
Zel is a remarkably strong woman. My heart went out to her the whole book. She had such a horrible time in her past, but it never stopped her determination to give her daughter, Clara what she deserved. Zel is one of the best mothers ever that I have read in a book. She will capture your heart as much as her daughter will. Clara is one beautiful little girl. She will have your heart filled with so much love that it hurts. She brings two people together who have such dark pasts and does it with just the adorable little smile on her face and her big amazing heart.
Roan Averin! My goodness he’s the most remarkable man I have read about this year. He had me hook line and sinker as soon as he came into the story. I fell hard for him. He’s strong and struggles with a very dark past that you will read about and it will have your heart going out to him. Wishing he had had a better childhood. I held onto hope throughout the whole book that he would see some light into his life and find a way out of the darkness and once he did find some light it’s one of the sweetest changes you will ever see happen in a man. All because of a beautiful child. Just note you will need a box of tissues while reading. I bawled my eyes out for about half of this book, my heart was shattered into a million pieces and was slowly put back together, but there were still a few pieces that couldn’t be fixed because of what happens.
Amazing job Pepper, your writing and stories just keep getting better and better. I absolutely loved Destroyed and I’m looking forward to more of Roan Averin aka Fox, if there is going to be more ;)
Thanks so much for having me on your blog. Um, good subject. I’ll pick five books that I’ve enjoyed. However, I have a LOT more favourites than just the ones mentioned below:
1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I LOVE this woman’s writing style and fell in love with her lyrical prose as well as Akiva.
2. Captive in the Dark by CJ Roberts: I love the darkness of this and how tortured Caleb was.
3. Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James: Purely because she brought erotica to mainstream and allowed so many other writers to build on their careers.
4. Harry Potter Series by J K Rowlings: I look up to this woman as she has turned being a writer into a HUGE franchise. She’s amazing.
5. Cross-stitch by Diana Gabaldon: I LOVE the richness of history and how sexy Jamie is.
Thank you so much!
Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero the better and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex… her books have sex.
She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby (who speaks French—hot!) who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends. She loves to hear from her readers so hit her up firstname.lastname@example.org
