“Some say the past is in the past. That vengeance will hurt both innocent and guilty. I never believed those lies. Once my lust for revenge is sated, I’ll say goodbye to hatred. I’ll find a new beginning.”
She came from a past Arthur “Kill” Killian never forgot. She made him sin and made him suffer. She tugged him from the shadows and showed him he wasn’t as dead as he thought. And with her resurrection came betrayal, deceit, and war.
But then they took her. Stole her. Imprisoned her.
Now Kill’s carefully laid plans for vengeance are complete. He craves action, retribution-the blood of his enemies. War has begun. War is all they’ll know until they’ve paid their penance. He will get her back-and rewrite their destiny . . .
Ruin & Rule ended with a stunning cliffhanger. . . and Sin & Suffer continues the thrilling, sizzling rollercoaster of a ride!
Arthur “Kill” Killian must devise a scheme to get his true love away back from his sick, twisted father. He is a broken man but he will stop at nothing to wreak revenge on his “family.” At the same time, how can he possibly protect Cleo from the evils that surround her?
“Cleo eclipsed everything. She was my Sagittarius, my soul mate, my best friend. Not only had I failed her once and persecuted us to eight years apart, but she’d also been harmed twice at my father’s hand. She’d suffered more than she ever should and it was all because of me and my need to settle the score. I wanted to forget about my goal—to halt the guillotine hovering over both our futures—because if I didn’t, if I continued chasing death, then I didn’t deserve her. And I want so fucking much to deserve her.”
Cleo is battling her own devastating past, but like all Pepper Winters’ books, Cleo is one kick-ass heroine who is strong, stubborn and resilient. Kill is her soulmate, her true love since childhood and she can withstand almost anything now that she knows he is back in her life.
“There hadn’t been a single moment in the past eight years when I’d awoken and wished I could forget.
Every morning had been a struggle to remember.
Every night a battle between needing to know and needing to forget.”
Sin & Suffer has TONS of twists and turns. I love MC books so this book was a pleasure to read. It is not quite as dark as Ruin & Rule, but it is just as thrilling and satisfying. Cleo and Kill are two unforgettable characters and I loved the conclusion that Ms. Winters gave to them in Sin & Suffer.
“Her flaws could be called ugly—an imperfection to be hidden. But it only made me fall deeper in love with her. She had the strength to bare them—even using them to define how others saw her.”
