Publisher's Summary

The epic conclusion to The Boy & His Ribbon

"What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No...that's not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does? I'll tell you what you do. You hope."

Ren

Ren didn't know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own. To begin with, he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything. Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly. But then love turned to lust and ruined everything. 

Della

I was stupid to write down my secrets, but I'd been stupid before, so it was nothing new. I couldn't blame him, hate him, fix him. I tried to move on without him. But no matter what I did, I couldn't seem to delete the secrets I'd written. Until something happened. Until he came back and read my stupid secrets. And nothing was the same after that.

Somebody hold me

While I had no idea that this is where I would end up and I have no intention of ruining the story in any way for anyone else, I will say that this book is beautifully written in all ways. In book 1 Ren and Della were separated, in this book, they are brought back together and we are the conclusion of their story. Though hard and difficult to listen to in some places, it also was so perfect and so blindingly awesome.

Hayden and Will were perfection. Duet isn’t my favorite choice for narration, but they were flawless. Every transition was seamless. There were complications with the audio when I listened, but I just reverted to the book for the chapters that were missing. I know a lot of people wouldn’t be happy with that, so you may want to check and make sure those issues are solved before you start listening.

BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE!

Heartbreakingly brutal but realistic! A twisted and painful read/listen with a beautiful message, I think.

This turned out to be one of the most, gripping and enthralling stories I have read this year. The irony, I keep listening non-stop hoping for a miracle.

This story truly messed up with my mind and emotions from the very beginning. Once again, Author Pepper Winters delivers a very compelling and captivating story that touches the very depths of your soul, however in this case it will rip your heart out if you're not thinking realistically (in my defense, this was too close to home).

Nattators Will Watt and Hayden Bishop did an outstanding job in their performance!! JUST BRILLIANT!!

Great listen

I have listened to both books in this duet. The boy and his ribbon is the first book and the story concept caught my attention. Both are well written and the narration is fantastic. That being said, the story has a very sad undercurrent with the predictable sad ending.

So, if you require a happily ever after, this is not the book for you. It is gritty and angst. It’s a love story that works its way into your sole. I loved it and would recommend it highly

Well worth your credits for both books!

Beautiful and heartbreaking

I loved this story so much! The narrators were amazing, and as always pepper winters stole my heart. But I must warn others not to listen to the last few hours at work or while driving. I found myself full on ugly crying at my desk praying no one would knock on my office door!

Fantastic!

I'm not normally a fan of duet narrations, but these two were fantastic. I felt every emotion with them and they brought life to Pepper's words. It'll take me awhile to get over this book!

Have tissues ready...

Have your tissues ready because the second part to Ren and Della’s story is full of ups, downs and everything in between. I loved this series, but after finishing it I recommend going for something light hearted. Maybe a romantic comedy. Five star ending to the book and the narration made it come to life more than any other audiobook I’ve listed to which is a lot!!! :)

PEPPER WINTERS BROKE MY HEART!

First of all, let me say this Hayden Bishop & Will M Watt I bow down to you both because this has to be by far the best audiobook I have ever heard and not only because of the story itself but the way you both told it. it was your voices that dragged me into Ren and Della's world and kept me there. I played a sample of The Boy And His Ribbon and I was hooked, I devoured it and had to have this book and while it will be a long long long time before I forgive Pepper for breaking my heart I am so glad I got to be part of this world for a few hours your performance is OUTSTANDING!
Now for the book Where do I start?
Devastating, soul-crushing, Happy, Romantic, Hot, Sad, Crying, Crying and well more Crying!
those were just my emotions listening to this series but this book alone was the one to crush me and maybe I am absolutely insane but I am glad it did because this is a book that will stay like a scar on my heart until the end of time such a powerful story told by Oscar-worthy Narrators is something you do not come across often.
you guys need this book yesterday it's that good!
Would Ren Wilde be my book boyfriend? Hell yes! he is my book husband! #Claimed

What is right or wrong

I love this book. I wonder if the book is base on fact, because people are so cruel to children.

Perfection!

This story will make you feel. The heart ache and break. The ups and downs happy and sad. You will cry ugly tears and have a book hangover for sure. I loved this book. I am so happy this was a book about life.

Heartwrenching

Oh my God! Its a kind of book i have never heard or read. Though I have read tragedies but never of this kind. It keeps you hooked, locked, addicted to its tale of ups and downs in the life of Ren and Della. I had fallen in love with both of them in the first book but this book just cemented itself in the deep recesses of my heart word by word..

The previous books of Pepper gave me an idea that her books always have a dark corner but not even the prologue can prepare me for the despair I know I was going to face. Despite knowing the ending you are bound to read it, till the end as it is one of those rare gem that will grab your heart and you will feel each of its beats along with Della. You'll long to have the kind of love and connection share by them, To taste the kind of love they were forever bonded by. I have only praises for this book. As a bookoholic I want to request you to please read it as its one of a kind experience of life. A piece of reality though bitter but needed to be tasted as it is something to be always cherished & treasured in your soul.
Keep your tissues handy in the final chapters..

Excellent narration that made this journey all the more memorable..

An amazing story

I have to admit, that this book is one of the best that I have ever read and I have read a lot, over 500 books in my library. I was gripped to the very end, It almost felt that the book was based on someone’s life’s history, it felt so real and I immersed myself deeply with REN and
Della, cried and sobbed at the ending. Their love for each other was told beautifully. The first book , The boy and his ribbon must be read first to understand the second book .

fantastic story but no for the faint of heart

From start to finish I laughed, I cried I was frustrated with the characters!! I could not put it down!!!! It made me realise that life is short and that there are people out there with worse! Despite being a made up story it opened my eyes up and made me thankful for what i have, Thank you x could not recommend a better book

Amazing. Be brave.

Take the plunge and read. It is an emotional story that will break your heart then mend it back together again ten times over. Pepper Winters has once again done an amazing job.
