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.
This was REALLY good. I liked the premise and the characters and all that jazz. There was angst and mystery and character development.
So why not more stars?
I felt like there was a little too much repetition and Fox’s “epiphany moment” at the end of the story seemed a little too sudden, a little too miraculous, and little too clean cut for it to ring authentic for me.
Otherwise, I really enjoyed this and I will definitely read more Pepper Winters.
