“Must be slim, able to stand for long periods of time, and be impervious to the cold.”The headline caught my attention.“Hours are negotiable, pay is minimal, clothing absolutely forbidden.”The second line piqued my curiosity.“Able to hold your bladder and tongue, refrain from opinions or suggestions, and be the perfect living canvas.”The third made me scowl.“Other attributes required: non-ticklish, contortionist, and obedient. Must ...

    "If I was brutally honest with myself, I was mostly in love with her and I’d never even said hello." I had to read this book sectionally. Only because I promised myself I would not DNF it, nor would I make my final judgement until and unless I've read that last page. I knew I had to leave my review for a handful of days after release day, because for all intents and purposes - Pepper Winters deserves any and all success with her releases, and ...

    OMG I can't believe I have been chasing this book since last year so as you can expect this book right here had my anticipation levels sky rocketing!! I had such high expectations for this book!! So looking at my rating of 3 stars I liked it but I didn't love it..And it pains me to rate it as such..Me and books have been in a real weird place of late, if this is what a book funk feels like I want off of it!! This took me a while to get into, it e...

    Gil & Olin took my whole life energy and I *mentally* kicked them on the face too many times while I was reading this book but still that end gave me WTF vibes... 😳😳😳 I'm giving 3 stars because it was so frustrating the push&pull between Gil & Olin. I found it too much but still I hope you don't mind my rating and you give a chance to this story. Who knows maybe you'll love it more than I did...👍And now I'm literally dying to read 2nd...

    3 STARS Our attraction exploded. Our togetherness ruptured. It burned. It ached. It wanted. It's no secret that Pepper Winters is a master when it comes to crafting intricate and captivating stories, and the Master of Trickery duet is no exception. It was beautifully written, twisted with secrets, and smothered with pain. Unfortunately as much as I wanted to love it, I struggled immensely to get into the story. Much like all Pepper's books, thi...

    “Something unique and special and absolutely terrifying.” “Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”—Vincent Van Gogh (This quote taken from the last two sentences of Epigraph before the book.) In her indomitable writing styl...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ upload image📚 “If you knew me, you’d run from me.” His voice thickened. “You should run. Please, God. Run.” 📚GOD, I've been waiting for this book for too long!!! I even embarrassingly stalked Pepper until the ARC reached my Kindle. LOL 🙈In the past, she wrote that this was one of her darkest duets, and I'll admit I was worried. But around 50% I thought: "This is it? What exactly is dark in here?!?" 😂Until, su...

    Sometimes a story comes along which takes you by your scruff and shoves you right in the midst of a swirling, dangerous storm. The events unfold all around you and you watch helplessly your favorite characters take a beating,bleed, hurt, ache, cry and wail. This is such a story! “You haven’t changed. You hurt me when we were younger and you’ve hurt me now.” “Congratulations, Gilbert, you’re successfully the only man who’s broken my ...

    I have no idea why I love this book so much. There are definite things missing, like more of a faster plot and the complete obliviousness of the heroine in this book mind of drove me crazy; but, for some reason, the combination of characters and situations just worked perfectly. The fragility of Gil & Olin’s relationship felt believable and never became exhausting for me as a reader. The alternating POV enables the reader to bond with both of t...

    Lately it's taking me longer to get through books and this is fine because I want to make sure I enjoy the stories I'm reading but with this new Pepper Winters book it only took me about four days to read it and that's really fast for me. This means that I really, really enjoyed this story. I was pretty hooked!Olin and Gil... what can I say about them except that their story made my heart ache so much. I loved the deep and pure connection they ha...

    ***ARC GENEROUSLY PROVIDED BY THE AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE OF AN HONEST REVIEW***This is a story about Gil and Olin. Gil is aka Gilbert Clark. It's about Olin re-discovering her first love, Gil, when she goes to an appointment through an advertisement. It's about Olin trying to figure out why Gil hates her. Why Gil left her? What broke them in the past? Along with all of these questions, there's underlying suspense and a murder mystery going on.With su...

    50% into the book. And the writer still doesn't get to the point.A heads up : 50% of the book is repetitive. There is no head, body, structure of any sort. Every other chapter is a switch b/w the past & the present. And really nothing happens. You're merely spending a week at best both in the past & present with the heroine just being needy, not understanding the meaning of no, annoying the brains out of both the reader & the hero (we're supposed...

    I had to think on this. I was into it mostly, I was loving the heartache and the push and pull. I really liked the characters, was completely intrigued by everything that was happening, despite the fact that I found Olin's begging a bit infuriating. I understood this all consuming epic love she was feeling, but at some points even I wanted her to walk out the door, find some self respect and move on with her life. The secrets had my mind reeling....

    ”How could a man who surrounded himself in barricades suddenly leave himself wide open for attack?”I loved this book.I love Pepper Winters.She is my absolute favorite guilty pleasure author and read. If I ever want to indulge myself into some troubled men / troubled women I ALWAYS go to her— her writing never fails me.I love how Pepper creates the relationships that she does. The heart-wrench filled / angst filled ones. The troubled boy, th...

    I loved this and yet I didn't.Yes that makes no sense, I know. The Body Painter is so full of beautiful imagery, powerful writing and emotion that spills from its pages into your very soul. I loved every single word that was written, really enjoying the dual point of view. All the present day is from Olin's perspective, and makes up the majority of the book, with brief glimpses of their past from Gil's viewpoint. For me that worked well, allowed ...

    Okay, I am on the fence with this one. I hadn't read a romance book in a while and this one certainly wasn't just romance. It was part romance, part thriller. Also, this is a Pepper Winters book and she is my Queen. Her Indebted Series will forever be my number one dark romance. Jethro Hawk has my soul. So, I was very excited to read this. It was steamy but oh so frustrating ! I guessed the twist early, but of course the writing kept me going. Gi...

    *** 3 Stars ****ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest reviewYou can't say Pepper Winters doesn't write an exciting story. This book was intense.

My biggest problem with this book - Olin. Our heroine. Now, I haaatttteeee disliking the her...

    This is a hard review for me to write, the simple fact is that I liked the book I just didn't love it. I am a fan of Pepper Winters and have LOVED everything of hers I have read but for some reason I just couldn't connect with Gil and Olin, now I have to mention that there is A LOT going on in my real life right now that may be interfering with the ability to really dig my teeth in or it could be my head space right now isn't what is needed for t...

    4.5 Stars / 3 Steam Fans I am still reeling from the beginning of this crazy, dark, and twisted duet. Olin and Gil have been frustrating, annoying, but in the end if you stick with the crazy you are left dying to know how everything ends. Since this is a duet and there are so many twists and turns to the story it is hard to write a review without any spoilers. So these are the things you should know: Gil hires Olin as a canvas, Olin and Gil have ...
