She has a secret.

I’m complicated.

Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face.

Just complicated. 

I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion.

But I hadn’t met him.

I hadn't realized how far I could fall or what I'd do to get free. 

He has a secret.

I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving.

I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.

I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after.

I told myself to shut up and stay hidden.

But then she tried to run.

I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.

One secret destroys them.


My eyes flared.

“Why on my stomach? A vital part of my anatomy isn’t
useable unless you intend to teach me how to dry hump a mattress.”

I tried to joke, to dispel some of the tense anxiety between us,
but Zel’s lips only twitched.

I’d mistaken any sense of relief when she secured the padlock
- she hadn’t relaxed at all, shaking with tension. 

“I want to do something.”


She wanted to touch my back.

She wanted to look deeper at the tattoos, see
beneath the ink to the lash marks and countless other scars
hidden beneath the Ghost designs.....

Raising my eyes to lock with hers, I murmured,

“I want to lick you.”

Her eyes flared wide; her toned tummy tightened.

When she didn’t move, I cocked my head.

Let me taste you and I’ll gladly let you touch my back.
But I’m not going anywhere until you obey me.
Come here.”

She shook her head, a blush covering her cheeks.

 “I can’t. How would you—”

Logistics seemed simple to me.

You have to sit on my face, Zel.”

I couldn’t stop the small smile and
the thrill in my stomach at the thought of her presenting herself to me.

She’d have to willing expose herself
and hold herself in place while I pleasured her. 

“Move. Now. I won’t ask again.”



Clare's Review:


Just fucking wow.

I'm not entirely certain what goes on Pepper Winter's head, but it's clearly a magical, brilliant and twisted place.

Destroyed takes twists and turn. Many unexpected. Many that rip your fucking heart out and cause angry tears.

And also many inexplicably sweet moments.

It was weird. I mean in an awesome way. Lol.

It was unlike anything I've ever read before and I found it fascinating.

It was very  easy for me to be completely absorbed in the story and into the painful lives of the characters.

Roan is so confusing and dark and tortured. And hot
Zel is conflicted and beat down, but when she grows some balls, she is a force to reckoned with.

Through all the tears and heartache in the story, it's actually really beautiful tale of love, redemption, friendship,and family.

Really loved it.

5 stars

Not for the faint of heart;)
