Review: Crown of Lies (Crown of Lies Duet #1) by Pepper Winters

*****5 STARS*****

I always find myself in utter awe of this author - she never fails to deliver. Just when I think I've read her best book yet, she releases another which blows me away. 
I honestly couldn't pick a favourite and this evocative, story is no different.There's so much emotion interwoven into this story - loneliness, guilt, passion and denial but above all truth and lies.

Elle has had her life mapped out for her and although she not ungrateful, she also feels trapped. 
When she dares to venture outside her routine, her life is altered irrevocably.The male lead in this book draws you in and keeps you hooked and just when you think you've got him figured out, the story twists and turns. He's possessive, protective and an utterly magnetic.

This story ends on a precipice and I'm itching to get my hands on book two. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Another unadulterated triumph from 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.”

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.
