Release Blitz & Review - Crown of Lies - Pepper Winters






“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 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.”

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

However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver.

Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched.
Including her.

Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else.

Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.




Our Review:


Okay so I finished this 2 nights ago, but I still haven't made up my mind about how I feel on it. To be honest, as this is part of a 2 book series, it's hard to have a full opinion until the story is finished. But here are my thoughts so far....

Firstly, Pepper Winters wrote this. That alone already bumps it up to 3 stars just because her writing is completely epic, and every book she releases is just incredibly unique. Her storytelling skills just never seem to falter, there is nobody else like her, and she just gets better and better with each new release. 

Secondly, The atmosphere is full on intense and nail biting. I love that about Pepper's books, you literally can't put down a story of hers, it's almost like a drug. You have to continue or have withdrawal from it. :)

Thirdly, The details and backstory. Pepper always manages to put in so much detail into her stories, it feels like she has lived the world contained in the story, everything is so clear and easy to place yourself into the pages. 

Now normally I would go on to the characters, then the overall plot, but this is where I'm holding off until the final part of the story is released. I'm still not 100% how I feel about Penn as yet. Part of me loves him, part of me uhh doesn't I guess. So instead of making a decision now, I will wait until he spilled all his beans and secrets. :) Love Noelle (Elle) no complaints on her, she is a totally awesome character. The story itself, I want to love but I'm holding back a little, hoping there will be a big twist or shocker in part 2, so that I can say "OH I didn't have it all sussed out, I didn't see that coming."

So basically, in my opinion this isn't like Peppers dark and twisty stuff. It's full on gripping and exciting, and EXTREMELY sexy, the chemistry and heat is literally oozing off the pages. It's got a lot of mystery and visually the imagery is stunning, in my mind. All in all, loved part 1. Hoping part 2 blows it out of the water. :)

4 Stars.
