Well now going to dive in book 2 of this series Blood and Chaos as it’s out now can’t get relief until I find out the conclusion of Sophia and Creed / Deavolo as known as ghost
Recommended to all my dark romance lover felows ,
Sophia Cova lived a quiet, normal life, shadowed in sadness after the loss of her parents in a tragic airline accident. With her older brother being her only living relative and her anchor, Sophia is sure she’s destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken.
Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and woke to every woman’s worst nightmare.
With only four grimy basement walls and a rancid mattress, she loses her sense of time, and preserves what’s left of her dignity by hurtling herself into the safety of her mind. The men, the beatings, they come and go with no reaction, until she hears one word that sends an arctic chill through her body. Sold.
On the eve of Sophia’s bidding, all hell breaks loose in the mansion of horrors. Gunfire and screams erupt all around her, as panic rises.
Snatched by one monster only to be taken by another, Sophia slowly starts to learn that not everything is as it seems. When secrets unravel, and the twisted game of cat and mouse ensues, The Puppeteer pulls his favorite strings and chaos brews. Lives are lost while the clock ticks, and only time will tell who will be killed next… WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious content, strong language, and graphic violence.

P.S : “Beh love Ehd” this sentence is the core of this book and it tooks my heart away , part of my heart will always love this book.
It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?
Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from, she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.
Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive but beautiful man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle.
With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.
TRANSCENDENCE: an epic love story told from a caveman’s point of view.

Monsters in the Dark Series by Pepper Winters is now in KU!
This was my first DARK book series i ever read years ago and since then i am not only hooked with this outstanding author but also it introduced me to my darker side now i am a die hard fan of all the dark romance genre darker even better.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars (its more like 3.5 star, there isnt any critera on GR to give 3 an half or 4 an half so opted for 3)
“Is your heart frozen, cruel one?”
NOTE : ITS A DARK AND ADULT VERSION OF A FAIRY TALE. READ IT ON YOUR OWN RISK.
“A TWISED VERSION OF ELSA AND ANNA TALE”
OMG! what a twisted, unexpected version of the best fairy tale i just read. Which was crulest, brute, vindictive, vile, and fucked up in some extent but very swoonworthy at the same time I think I loved this version of Frozen more than the innocent one.(because i am an adult and i love dark romance)
I love the way Ryke barged into Elzira KINGDOM and commandeered everything she owned and ruled including her. One was cold ‘ sad , fading and dying slowly then the other was full of fire and energy and intend to ruin everything that come in his way. I love the way they taunted each other with names like snowflake and volc. Which also represents small part of their big powerful personality. As Elzira used to be full of powers as a Queen of Whitestone. Cold Queen. Creator of diamondblades. Weather maker. The Punisher of The Damned. She hide a BRUTLE beast in her. She was the most feared Queen but somehow she is losing everything in her rein.
As soon as Ryke set his eyes on the queen he knows what he has to do even though he planed to marry young princess. He saw things which other people ignored to see, he saw those things not only he was the Truth seeker, Fire maker , the king of Bloodstone but also he was infatuated by the aura of the Cold Queen. And he want answers and to learn the truth about dying kingdom so then he can override it.
Both of the king and queen were dark , brute, and fierce.
All in all it was an outstanding read. Loved every bit of it. Full of suspense , thrillers, secrets and mysteries. There were some parts that were way too darker then my liking but it’s the part of the bitter and cruel reality.
Recommended all those who love twisted dark love story.

This book is undoubtedly an awesome read and definitely is a 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ read and as compare to the title it’s for sure dirty and ugly But written so beautifully that i couldn’t take my self away from it not only for a moment until I finished and my mind still occupied and and still couldn’t stop thinking about the characters. This book is raw, brutal, very intense, it showed very tragic and ugly part of the society. Even though Braxton Kennedy was seems arrogant, sexy,handsome and sadistic bastard but I literally fall in love with him as soon as he picked his dirty Toy from the street to fulfil his sadistic needs. Both main characters has very troubled past, it ripped my heart to know what they have endured. As much I love Braxton as I love Jessica/ Bunny The dirty ugly Toy . She was sassy , feisty, witty, at a time was very vulnerable before she met brax, but became stronger gradually even though Brax tried and made her vulnerable, humiliated and degrade her time an time again but also help her developed strong and beautiful side of her. Whatever he wanted to do with her but ended up the opposite. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It’s very captivating, there is suspense mystery and thriller to make you keep reading till end. There are many things I want to share about the book but can’t tell as it lost all the fun so if you want to enjoy the story how Braxton and Bunny story evolved so you MUST READ.
NOTE: Highly Recommended to those who love Dark Romance.
Synopsis: Her time is over. Things are looking up.
She’s dirty and ugly. He’s wicked but handsome.
Six months to toy with her. Six months of vacation and a ton of money.
I’ll hurt her beyond repair. I’ve been through much worse.
She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey. I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.
I should hate her. I should hate him.
The game has changed. I will win.
Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.
This book is undoubtedly another master piece by Pepper Winters. Every time she gave us some unique and very different new story that no body before her probably thought about to write. This is a second book in “Master of trickery” named The Living Canvas and book one is . The Body Painter
As far as this story is concern it’s poignant, portrayal of some dark and disturbing reality. Even though the main character Gilbert Clark deal with colours but his own lives colours was fading day by day. It tells that sometimes love of your life is in reach but you are so helpless to have them and to protect them.
This book is about love, trust, deal with loss and helplessness, and it takes great effort to deal with all the emotions and feelings I mention prior. Where at one hand it shows us some bitter aspect of life but on the other hand it shows there is some hope still left. If the world is full of cruel, bad and vile people but there are still some of goodness left in the form of the people who take care of others and give anything to anyone selflessly and when it comes to deal with their friends and family they would do anything to accommodate their needs.
And as usual pepper winters story never end without any lesson to learn, and the moral of this story was, to be silent on some very crucial incidents in your life which impacts bitterly not only on your life but others as well, is crime, and it took sometimes very precious time and moments from your life, it also tells never ever hesitate to ask for help, and always share things that is unbearable in your life with your love ones and friends so that you can save yourself from some serious consequences.
At the end of this review I must say I like the book and its unique concept but there were some loopholes in the story and some stretched love scenes. like, in UK, school requires to be informed in case of unable to attend the school, second if absence happens more than 2 days then we need to give them some valid reasons for kids absences, otherwise authorities took matter in their hand and involves in this matter and in this story kid was absent from school for a years and plus kid father also voluntarily or part time teach painting at his kid’s school but they didn’t take any action or notice about either of their absence. But if we ignore this thing by considering this is not a real but fiction story then all is good.
Overall it was a good read, I liked it. It has some mystery and suspense elements also some thrilling action and the anticipation of what would happen between GIL AND OLIN , if they sorted out their differences or not and come to their sense that they couldn’t be without each other or chose different paths of their lives that would keep you busy in reading until the conclusion. all in all its worth read this book. if you are into some unique love stories that depicts life bitterness and reality and also shows its pleasant aspect then its completely recommended.
Ever Since Pepper Winters share the idea of The Body Painter very 1st time years ago I want to grab a hold on that book . It was my Most Awaited and very highly anticipated book of the Year. And I must say it was totally different than I anticipated beyond my expectations. Story is as usual Very unique with completely new concept that one never could think about, Gripping, heart wrenching , soul shattering, full of thrill, suspense and mystery, unable to put down, very captivating and extremely painfully beautiful. Pepper winters’ s word has magic that took you straight into the world she created. Where we felt all the emotions which characters were dealing. This book just sucked me whole in and I am totaly consumed By the emotions it awoke inside me. Such as Emotions of Love specifically the agony of true and pure love ,hatred towards cruelty ,anger towards ignorant and abusive family, fierce wrath on those who took advantage of vulnerability.
Let me warn you, it’s a love story but not like fairy tales kind of with full of swoonworthy romance but the opposite, twisted and dark, with full of pain , abuse, helplessness, sadness, lonlines , an agonising tale of two lonely soul who love each other immensely but the bitter and cruel reality come between them no matter how strongly they fought with the brutality of their fate but it never let them together with peace and love.
I love equally both Gil and Olin. Both were lonely , damaged, broken. I loved The way their childhood love start, the structure of their love in the Past was sooo pure, Innocent and cute that made me want to protect them from evil and wicked world but cruelity intervene and tainted their pure love and in Present their Love for each other made me cried and killed me thousand time knowing they want to be together but they couldn’t, I felt the pain every time one rejected other’s love and kindness and the one who was dismissing other one ‘s love was dealing the great pain than the one who is rejected .
One hand Olin was Soft , kind hearted, selfless, helpfull ,empathetic broken but strong. On the other hand Gil was strong but vulnerable, damaged, protective for his Loveones.
Book is written in past and present context very skilfully. There was lots of twist and turns with the tinge of Suspense and mystery that would shocked you and the end of th book one is so mind blowing, the cliff hanger just killed me. Now the wait for the 2nd book The Living Canvas is become so excruciating. I couldn’t get peace until I know the conclusion of Gil and Olin’s heart wrenching tale of love.
Undoubtedly 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ read. It’s a must MUST READ. You won’t be disappointed. And HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. All in all it was just amazing and outstanding book. An other MASTER piece in litrature by PEPPER Winters .
Couple of minutes ago i finished “Chase The Butterflies” i am just out of words right now to describe my feelings. I am so over whelmed by all sort of emotions. I cried last half of the book till end. And my heart still feel the urge to cry . I just want someone to hold me. GOD DAMN what an outstanding book Monica James has created Literally its out of this world.
It was poignant, sad , very emotional, romentic, mysterious,so poetic, and beautifuly Magical. Very skillfuly written. It has held all my attention from the prologue.as soon as i started to read a smile appear on my face but that wasnt last long and left me in shock. Well 1st half was good but some certain things were not clear in the begining and described vaguely that allure you to dive in deep to understand their meaning. And when you past the 57% of the book it has become more and more interesting. There were some unexpected turns and events took places in the book that most definatly left you dejected and stunned. And Oh man! What a magnificent End was, it was extraordinary.The End was beyond my expactations honestly I anticipated something differnt but i bet monica just nailed it and left me in an emotional mess.
I wish i could describe the beauty of the book, because sometimes i am unable to do so, the reasons are, 1st some books are so damn good that render me speachless and dumbstruck that your brain couldnt function and this is one of those book that left you in a emotional mess and 2nd english is my not 1st language so sometimes i find my self out of words to describe it appropriatly but nonetheless i do try always when it comes to the books i like the most. Well all the praises to Monica James for producing such a marvelous book. I thoroughly enjoyed and loved it. In my opinion this book comes in the category of #MustRead books. I would definitly recommend this book because its a worth read.

I love the book but lill bit disappointed on some facts that needed to be wraped up neatly as it was a final conclusion of a murder mystery plus mackinzy and Baz love story . It was highly-anticipated for me. I won’t say that I didn’t enjoy the book infect it was captivating with full of unexpected twists and turns, and also it was angsty, emotional, nerve wrecking , heart wrenching tale but with a HEA you would love to read.
As much as I want to write my full detailed review but I couldn’t because I am afraid I will spoil the fun for other readers coz the book is yet to be released And the things that was bit disappointing for me probably won’t be for other readers regardless of that it was interesting and unable to put down.
P.S: My hands are itching to write down the issue that realy disappointed me and made me give this book one less star though I actualy wanna give 3.5 star but I settled for 4 star. BUT I CAN’T. probably after one month of release I will write down with spoiler tag.
Recommended to all the readers who love dark , angsty, emotional book with tinge of Suspense , mystery and thriller.
