Publisher's Summary

The thrilling follow-up to Crown of Lies from New York Times best-selling author Pepper Winters.

Two years

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.

Two days

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who'd been stolen from me.

Two hours

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

Two minutes

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.

Two seconds

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.

Two breaths

For me to walk out the door.

Two heartbeats

For it all to be over.

😳WTF😳Sooooo Disapointed!!!!

I loved book 1, could not wait for book two, what a shame. I get that the story is Fiction, but really Pepper yes our legal system can be messed up but really accused have rights as do victims.
I feel so ripped off by the writer, I had to skip through 3/4 of it, but there is a HEA !!
The narration was great, actually the only redeeming fact of the story.
I am a huge Pepper Winters fan but I can't believe she wrote this second book. Worth a credit?? No Freaking Way, unless you are a devoted fan like me and can fast forward past the ridiculous to support one of your favorite writers😢

I loved this book and the previous one! Great amount of mystery and romance romance and all the good stuff that gives you all the feels. I also enjoy listening to them, the narrators do a great job.

Five Star, Must read!!!! This is book 2 start w #1

I actually had the first book in my library for months and couldn't get past the violent scene in the first or second chapter. One day i had no power, no service, and only a few books to choose from so I decided to tough it thru to see if it got better and I'm so glad I did! This duet is now at the top of my favorites list for sure!!!

Good story, pronunciation incredibly bad...

It seems like every other word over 1 syllable was mis-pronounced - including larynx, for goodness sake! Please, someone listen through these publications before letting them go - embarrassed on behalf of the narrators and really distracting to listen to.

Pepper Winter is coming

This is my first time reading from Ms. Winter. Her writing is amazing and mind blowing. She knows how to bring the emotions out of her readers. Which is WOW!? Now to the Mr. Rolon and Ms. Stewart. You guys were amazing. Any chance you guys are dating or marry? Lol Overall, Kylie and Eric did an amazing job. They know how to bring the characters into life. Like wow!!!! Ms. Winter!!!!!!! Is possible if they finish doing the audible for Tears of Tess?

just wow<br />

Wow this was a great book it made me laugh and cry. It is amazing what love can makes us do crazy things. How love makes us put the neesds And feelings of the person we love before our own.

The only things I really didn't like was how Elle came across a little weak at time. How she had to have so many doubts and question everything in her head instead of asking out loud. But other than that this book was amazing. It was worth the credit I paid for.

Dang you Pepper Winter's, you just had to make me

So many questions were finally answered, so many tears were shed while listening to this book (I'm sure my co-workers think I'm a nut job), and so many broken hearts were mended.

This was the best conclusion to a duet that I have read. I was nervous when I only had a half hour or so left in this book, not knowing if Penn and Elle were meant for each other had me in tears and a mild panic attack. I thought for sure Ms. Winters' would leave us hanging and these two characters would get the HEA they both deserved (she's shady like that).

Needless to say this was a great book and I look forward to more books by Ms. Winters.

I enjoyed it

Was not as good as the first but still enjoyable. Loved the narration. Narration like this really makes listening a pleasure. Wish audible and tantor would do this with their books. This is what makes audible books so enjoyable

  • Overall

An okay ending

This book was too wordy, editing would have made it an excellent book. Again, Eric Rolon was great, he has admirable vocal range. His voice dominated this selection which was a good thing. I like Pepper Winters as an author, but this book seemed like a stretch.

Maybe I'm too snobby?

I struggled getting through this one. The first book was amazing but this one dragged. Because nothing says sexy like prison and "Hey, this is the bridge I used to sleep under." Also every sexual conversation seemed to take place in rooms full of people..... and Elle's father who said nothing!
