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😢

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.

Don't bother

Erotic novels are my thing. This series did have moments, for the most part it was a book no one can relate to. It isn't realistic, and the times you go "oh well no shit" and feeling you know the end of every chapter is just, annoying. I almost didn't finish it, but I honestly cannot never finish. The first book is such a cliff hanger you have to buy the second one. I'm giving two stars because I love the author. But the story frustrated me.

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?

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!!!

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.

This was ok, not what I expect from Pepper Winters

It was just ok. I have started to expect a certain flavor from different authors. So when I sit down to read or listen to a Pepper story, I expect a certain level of intrigue, dark and dirty romance, twists and turns. There were elements of these. Maybe she set her bar too high. I just expect it every time. -- this was good, just not great.

Great ending!

such a sweet ending to this story. I love Pepper Winters writing! She pulls me heart and soul into her books. I am so glad to finally get the answer about Penn. The way he acts makes so much sense now. It took me until this before before I fell in love will him. He had a rough life but is able to overcome everything with Larry and Elle. Elle is an amazing character that you can't help but love. She fights so hard for Penn. I love this book! Kylie C. Stewart and Eric Rolon did an amazing job narrating. I love them together. They brought such emotion and depth to the story.

Improvement to the first but still predictable

An improvement to the first book however this was still predictable and stretched out, I found myself skimming through 50%. The content of both books could have easily been one. I love Pepper Winters but this wasn't the best.

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!

Well read by both narrators.

I chose this Series because I loved reading Pepper Winters' "Boy and His Ribbon" series, and because it was a Duet narration, a bonus I search for when browsing. We need to see this more often btw. The narrators were great, and Eric Rolan is amazing. So many different characters, and he made each one unique. A real gift. This storyline was great but inside of the story, I sometimes fast-forwarded the sex scenes as they often went for 1 or 2 chapters each, and they became generic. (Very unlike her "Boy and His Ribbon" books that built the romantic tension so you felt it, and really wanted them to finally get together). Despite this, I gave it 5 stars for the original storyline but mostly for the great narration.
