Product description

Product Description

She has a secret.

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 have 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.

Secrets destroy them.

**Pepper Winters is known for her Dark Erotica. This book is more a Grey Romance. It isn't fluffy, and still deals with darker subjects, but it isn't brutal.**

Destroyed is a complicated love story between a man with a terrible past and a woman who holds his cure. A man who finds redemption in love and a woman who loses her heart and reason for living.

Death brings life, and destruction brings new beginnings.

Complete at 144,000 words. No cliffhanger. Stand alone. HEA

I feel like I have been pulled apart and put back together. Not sure what draws me to Pepper's dark stories, but I am ensnared by her imagination and her story telling abilities. I abhor violence, however, there is such redemption and rebirth in Pepper's stories that I am captured by her characters. Just like Tess and Q have become embedded in my heart, now Hazel and Roan have also. Thank you Pepper, you are amazing.

Being an Aussie, I liked that this story was set down under.

I had been wanting to read this book for ages and just never had got around to it, I'm so glad I made the time. Yes I have given it five stars because the story was an epic one, and raw and emotional and yet very frustrating for me at times, but for the life of me I couldn't put it down. In my opinion the second half of this book was much better than the first part and the writing was impeccable as always.

Hazel is a born fighter in life, but some things just take us down and after some life changing news her life is unraveling slowly. On a night out with her best friend, she meets Obsidian Fox ( Roan) and for reasons she can't fathom she is pulled towards this beast of a man. He has a very dark past with problems no one can help him with, he is conditioned and damaged so badly it actually scared me. I couldn't find a connection to Fox at all, I honestly didn't like his character but Hazel on the other hand I quite enjoyed her, such a determined lady, strong yet loving and with a tragic past of her own I couldn't help but gravitate towards her. Fox felt the same - he wanted Hazel, she had made him "feel" and that hadn't happened in his life for a very long time. He makes her an offer she really couldn't refuse because of certain circumstances in her life at present and from then on she is enveloped into the dark dangerous life of Fox and what a ride of discovery we are taken on.

I really liked that as the book goes along we get to delve into both their pasts and how they have gotten to this point in their lives, it is told in duel perspective so we really get to know these characters very well.

First, let me say that Roan is darker than the devil himself - hands down. Yet he's just as seductive, stealing inside your head because you understand where he's coming from. His violently stolen childhood and subsequent conditioning are nothing short of brutal. Yet he makes you feel that he deserves happiness - or at least the hope of it.

Hazel, whether she knows it or not, is looking for an out from her tragic life. I understand her despair at her circumstances, but I don't understand how she could just walk away from her responsibilities, when time is so important. Yet Roan is such a powerful character that he carries the story from the start.

Ms Winters' vivid writing made this story so real to me I actually had nightmares as a result for about a week afterwards. My almost-eight-year-old daughter having a My Little Pony movie marathon in the background as I read this book probably didn't help the situation.

No, the characters aren't normal people - their circumstances and their pasts mean that they can never be normal. But they do deserve a happy ending.

Superb writing that truly deserves five stars.

Finished!
This one took me a little longer than usual because it is not a novella but also because it was not an easy start for me. The first hundred pages or so I really felt like I was dragging myself through and I made a fair few stops and starts.
When I thought about why I realised it was because it took lots and lots of sentences to say the same thing over and over. I felt like I was on repeat... "didn't I just read that?" It was not concise and what could have been said in one page took about ten. The book could have been about 100 pages shorter and I probably would have enjoyed it even more.
The other thing that I, personally, didn't like was the amount of time it took to find out about what was going on in the hero/ heroine's life. It worked ok for the hero but all the talk/ mind discussions from the heroine I found a little frustrating. She was a strong character and I wanted to know why she had become so tough and yet somehow maintained her need to care for people with issues. This came out as the story progressed but for me I felt a little uneasy about her. I wished that she had been more understandable right from the word go so that her need to help Fox was clearer... I can understand why readers would think she was mad to keep going back to someone that was sooooo disturbed!
My last gripe is the ending. For someone with a lifetime of issues (and SERIOUS issues, supposedly) the rainbow and unicorn ending was a little hard to come to terms with. I think if there had simply been improvements for whatever reason, this would have been more believable.
Other than those three issues I thought the story was very enjoyable. The premise was good, the characters were good, the relationship development was enjoyable. 4 stars
