Sin and Suffer is finally here!  Check out my review and Q&A with Pepper Winters! Enter for a chance to win a paperback copy of Sin & Suffer (10 copies are available).



About SIN & SUFFER
"Some say the past is in the past. That vengeance will hurt both innocent and guilty. I never believed those lies. Once my lust for revenge is sated, I'll say goodbye to hatred. I'll find a new beginning."

She came from a past Arthur "Kill" Killian never forgot. She made him sin and made him suffer. She tugged him from the shadows and showed him he wasn't as dead as he thought. And with her resurrection came betrayal, deceit, and war.

But then they took her. Stole her. Imprisoned her.

Now Kill's carefully laid plans for vengeance are complete. He craves action, retribution-the blood of his enemies. War has begun. War is all they'll know until they've paid their penance. He will get her back-and rewrite their destiny . . .

Review of Sin & Suffer

Sin & Suffer by Pepper Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.50 Stars
Title: Sin & Suffer (Pure Corruption Book #2)
Author: Pepper Winter
Release Date: January 26, 2016
Series - Two book series

If you read Ruin & Rule (Pure Corruption, Book #1), there isn't a chance in hell that you aren’t reading this book. It’s mandatory reading after that cliffhanger ending!

Kill and Cleo’s story picks up right where Ruin and Rule left off, without skipping a beat. The final book in this series gets into the politics of living an MC way of life and Kill’s true agenda! Pepper crafted an intricate web of revenge that was action-packed, gritty and addictive. Kill and Cleo’s story was written from a dual POV using excerpts from their childhood diaries, which provided a great backdrop for the plot to unfold. This story is complex and no ordinary MC book. Cleo and Kills's story transported me from blood-soaked MC clubs to backroom political drama in Washington; this plot was entirely unique.

I would highly recommend reading this series in order.

This review appears on www.kindlecrack.net, www.facebook.com/kindlecrack, Goodreads, Amazon, Pinterest, Google+ and Twitter. A review copy of this book was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.


Q&A with Pepper Winters!

1.  What would readers be surprised to find out about you? 
That I’m really not that interesting. Um…not sure…let’s see. I don’t like tomatoes. That’s a random fact.

2.     Tell us about your writing process. Do you start with an idea or a character? Do you know what’s going to happen from the beginning or do you figure it out as you write?
I have a vague plot line and character script but as I get to know the people I’m writing and the story arc, it normally always changes. It’s great to see characters take control and guide me in a different direction.

3.     Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?
Not particularly spoken piece of advice, but I do remember reading Laini Taylor’s work and ‘clicking’ with her beautiful writing. That was the day I found my voice.

4.     Is there one thing you have to have when writing?
Yes, a glass of icy cold Coke Zero and lots of water.

5.     How did you choose the names of your characters?
I let them choose. I might have place holders in for a while until it comes to me, or browse on baby websites until something clicks.

6.     How has music played a role in your life and in your writing?
Not at all. I have to have complete silence to write. But I love the way some lyrics can tell the soul of my story and list those in the playlists at the back of my work.

7.     When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?
When I was about six years old and I wrote a story in my school book that was meant to be math homework.

8.     What can you tell us about your couple, that we won't find in the book?
Oh, not sure. What sort of stuff do you want to know? I guess, you won’t find their generic everyday likes and dislikes. For example, Kill loves coffee black.

9.     Do you have any favorite book boyfriends of your own?
I have too many to count. It wouldn’t be fair to list in case I miss one.

10.  What are five books on your night stand/bookshelf?
Boring ones. I have The Secret, Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) Napoleon Hill (Think Rich) and a renovation guide to large homes.

11.  What’s your favorite quote or scene from your books?
That’s like choosing a favorite child. There are many but I love the scene in the shower with Tess and Q in Monsters in the Dark.

12.  If your couple’s relationship had a theme song, what would it be?
Um, again, I’m not sure. Their emotional growth encaptures so many theme songs.  I kinda suck at this, I know.

13.  Tell us about the cover process. Is this what you had in mind?
Yes, completely. I love an artist that can pluck the idea from your head and make it a reality.

14.  If your book was being made into a movie, who would you include in your dream cast? I’m going to suck on this question too. I honestly don’t know. My characters are unique in my head, so I don’t see them as anyone else. I know if it was ever made into a movie though, whoever was cast would do a great job.

15.  Where do you find inspiration for you writing? Do you use real people/places as a foundation? Yes and no. I tend to get random plot ideas while driving or in the shower. I don’t really use outside influences but let the character guide me to the next chapter etc.

16.  Do you have any hobbies or activities that you enjoy outside of writing? Yes, buying real estate and traveling.

17.  Would the 10 year-old version of yourself kick your butt or praise you for what you've accomplished in life? Praise me. I think I’ve been very lucky and happy with my life so far.

Thanks so much for having me!!

Excerpt from Sin & Suffer
There hadn’t been a single moment in the past eight years when I’d awoken and wished I could forget.

Every morning had been a struggle to remember.

Every night a battle between needing to know and needing to forget.

I’d tried to trick my mind into remembering, but either I was too stubborn or too afraid, because it never worked. And . . . as the days turned from hell to heaven and Arthur fell back in love with me, I didn’t really mind that a chunk of my life was missing.

I had him back. Larger than life and even more perfect than any recollection could do justice.

I was content with that.

Book Boyfriend Blog Hop Q&A - Marcus (Keep Me by Faith Andrews), Peyton (Consensual by Livia Jamerlan) & Dr. Chase Walker (Reluctantly In Love by Niecey Roy)

Today we will be asking our beloved book boys a few questions...... We were lucky enough to have Marcus from KEEP ME by Faith Andrews,  Peyton from CONSENSUAL by Livia Jamerlan and Dr. Chase Walker from RELUCTANTLY IN LOVE by Niecey Roy



 


So boys….the first time you saw your girl what went through your head?

Marcus: Well considering I first met Tessa when I was a thirteen year old little shit, the head on my shoulders wasn’t really an issue. It was the one in my pants that was suddenly all alive and tingly. And guess what, when I ran into her all those years later in Starbucks…it was kind of the same reaction. Tessa’s always been the type to turn heads without even having to try.

Peyton: She would be mine. One way or another I was not letting Braelynn.

Chase: The first time? All that long black hair piled up in a mess on the top of her head . . . she was gorgeous. But I think the best part about that first image was the pink cooler she was trying to lug across the pasture toward the canoes. She gets this glint of determination in her eyes, and it’s adorable and frightening at the same time. The second time I saw her? I was equal parts thrilled and terrified. The last time I saw her she was a walking disaster, and I had the bruises to prove it. *rubs forehead*

Tell us 3 adjectives that best describe you.

Marcus: Faith loves her hashtags so, here’s three I think she’d use to describe me:  #ReformedManWhore #TessaSavedMe #BadBoywithaHeart

Peyton: Controlling, passionate, demanding.

Chase: Easy-going—I love a good laugh. Patient—I really have to be in my line of work. Family-oriented—my family and I are real close. I’d do anything for them.

Last but not least….we’ve gotta know….tell us one of your biggest secrets.

Marcus: Oy! Secrets. They’re secrets for a reason, no? But if you MUST know (and I’ll have to kill you if you tell her this) my sister Riley is the person I look up to the most. Since my mother died, she’s been the closest thing to one for me and her opinion, whether I listen to it or not, really means the world to me. She’s a nagging pain in the ass, and a hypocrite in many ways if I do say so myself, but I’d walk burning coals for my big sis and I love her more than she probably knows.

 Peyton: I like a woman on top and in charge.

Chase: My biggest secret? I’m an open book. There was that one time back in high school when my buddies and I got caught sneaking beer out of the back of a bar. We outran a cop in my buddy’s pick up—lost the cop on a gravel road. We never told anyone—some of us might have lost our scholarships over that one.

About the authors

Faith Andrews

Faith Andrews lives in New York where she is happily married to her high school sweetheart. They have two beautiful daughters and a furry Yorkie son, Rocco. If she isn't listening to Mumford & Sons or busy being a Dance Mom, her nose is in a book or her laptop. She's a sucker for a happily ever after and believes her characters are out there living one somewhere . . .

Livia Jamerlan

Livia Jamerlan is the author of Divided. She is also a hopeless romantic who is always looking for her next love story to pop in her head. Though Livia kept a journal throughout her early life, she never thought about pursuing a career in writing. She always used it as form of therapy, pouring her heart out into words. It wasn’t until a story developed in her head that she decided maybe she could write a book. At first it was just an escape from reality, but now she uses it as a power to put all her feelings, hopes, and fears on paper. Deciding it was time to tell her story, she began to write. With each passing day the story grew, characters were formed, and what seemed like a hobby at first has now become a passion for Livia.

She is a New Jersey Native who loves spending time with her husband and two dogs Buddy and Daisy. When she is not writing or hiding behind her Kindle, you can find her with outside, gardening, at a local shopping center enjoying some retail therapy, or enjoy a pepperoni pizza.

Niecey Roy

Niecey Roy knew she wanted to be a writer from a very young age, but her moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail. It was then she realized her place in life and happily parked her butt on writing romance. Her dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters.

When she’s not at her day job where she works as a legal assistant, she can be found at home at a cluttered desk, pounding her tired little fingers away on a keyboard with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as her weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When her fingers need a break, you’ll find her at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of (sometimes ridiculous) high heels. She’s usually the loudest at the table and most often the one snorting with laughter.
