“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.
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.
There are certain authors that you just KNOW that when you read their books they will be something that you will not be able to forget, that they will take ahold of a piece if your soul and just stay there. That you just know that this book is going to be dark, it is going to mind fuck you, it is going to leave you on the edge of your seat and that when you finish that you absolutely need the next book right this very moment. For me, that is the best way to describe Crown Of Lies and Pepper Winters.
In an effort to not give anything away I am going to try to keep this review pretty short which sucks because I want to talk about everything but then that would spoil the book and I never want to do that to anyone. Noelle and Penn these two will pull you into their story and clutch on to you and not want to let you go. The mystery, the suspense, that edge of not knowing what is the truth and what are lies keeps you enthralled. I can’t wait for the next book to release!
