Release Blitz + ARC Review- Crown of Lies (Truth and Lies Duet #1) by 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.”

Title:  Crown of Lies (Truth and Lies Duet #1)
Author:  Pepper Winters
Genre:  Erotic/Dark Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 31st 2017
Plot:   “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.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via TRSOR PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

Pepper Winters has a knitch for mind fuckery.  Oh, yes, indeed.  I wouldn't say that this book was heavy and demented like many of her other inventory, but don't dismiss this read as any less of a contender for twisting and captivating your mind in its tale of love, lust, deceit, and hidden agendas.

Elle, the book's protagonist may seem to have everything but don't let that facade fool you nor her personality.  She's lonely, a hardworker, and has been betrayed by love before.   But her dad wants a king alongside with her to rule his business empire and that is where Elle is put between a rock and a hard place of what she wants and her father's whims.

As for her love interest.  Hmmmm, this is where I felt stunted and baffled.  I'm still up in the air as I still feel a little in the shadows.  Penn, I was constanting wanting but also nervous to know more about him.  Why is it that I always seem to be drawn in my these complicated sex on a stick male characters that aren't always what they seem?   Damn, I need bk2!!  This book left me on a cliffhanger and some withdrawals! Haha

My Rating:
