The Body Painter (Master of Trickery Duet, #1)

“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...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    “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...

    ”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...

    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 feelings about it are all over the place. I both loved and hated it. I can't remember reading a book that made me feel so strongly in both a good and bad way.Let's first talk about what I hated. My biggest problem with this book - Olin. Our heroine. Now, I haaatttteeee disliking the her...

I am not going to go into details of this book I don't want to give anything awayThis story is unique, I have never read anything like this before. This book pulled me in from the first chapter.

    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 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 ...

    Three and a half This is the first in what appears to be a duology and it’s every bit as twisted as Tears of Tess which was such a groundbreaking story. Here we meet Olin who is down on her luck and desperate enough to respond to an advert for a life model. The artist turns out to be Gil the boy who broke her heart at school but amidst the turmoil of meeting again Olin discovers that Gil has dark secrets and now they are putting Olin in danger ...
