Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters
Publication Date: February 28th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.
Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.
To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.
For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.
For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.
For me to walk out the door.
For it all to be over.
Dramatic and fated, this conclusion to Crown of Lies is one dark romance that grabs you and never lets go till the last heart-pounding page.
I was painfully impatient and needy to read this because I craved to uncover all the secrets, and to see Penn redeem himself from all his lies and his ill treatment of Elle. And, believe me, he does. So does she!
This strong woman realizes many things, too, and fights her own guilt. Yet this novel jumps from one terrifying obstacle to the happiness to another with scary celerity. I cringed at the severity of Elle's ordeal at the beginning of this second and last novel. She suffers so much, yet is always strong, resilient. The wods describe both her helplessness and her bravery so vividly.
The only thing that was confusing for me is what happens after she is saved from her ordeal. She goes to Penn's home without waiting for the police to give a statement and have evidence gathered of her bruises and mistreatment.
END OF SPOILER
Anyway, all the past injustices and hurts coalesce into the present, drowning Penn and Elle in another wave of despair that prevents them from being together, of healing their wounds and start anew. That part was incredibly intense and harrowing. They hate and love each other with ferocity, and it was amazing to read!
The characters fight to the bone for their freedom to enjoy love at last. It's a tale of atonement, of restitution, of lust and need and forgiveness and wrongs so raw that they become yours. I admit that Penn was stubborn as hell and he dragged the impossible nature of them being together too far, I'd have cut out his last stand and make-up scene, but it all paid off in the end. Impressive dark romance.
