Release Blitz + ARC Review + Giveaway: Sin & Suffer by Pepper Winters

Sin & Suffer
Pure Corruption MC #2
by Pepper Winters

"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 . . .

I read Ruin & Rule almost six months ago, it might as well be six years for all the things that I can't remember. I did went back and refreshed my mind by reading the last chapter though of Book 1, though.

Sin & Suffer started right from the cliffhanger with Cleo being kidnapped by Kill's father, Rubix, while Kill himself landed in the hospital with a major concussion. Kill being the ever protective lover was adamant to save his girl rather than to receive more treatment, much to the doctors and his brothers' dismay.

Meanwhile, Cleo was being held captive by Rubix for what purpose, I'm not quite sure. His intention seems a tad ambiguous to me. Just to prove a point? I'm expecting Kill to go in gun blazing, but when he was finally there, it was anti-climatic.

During the middle part of the story, Kill and Cleo get reacquaint with each other and we get to know more about Kill's plan and his club business. For those of us who are more eager to get down to the face off with Rubix, I felt that this part was slightly draggy. I want action, I want suspense, I want blood.Instead, I'm treated to Kill's evasiveness about his condition, secrecy about his ultimate plan and Cleo constant pestering about his health. I think we can shorten this part down by cutting off about 100 pages. However, this portion might satisfy those who appreciate the relationship development part between Cleo and Kill. I actually enjoyed the little tidbits on their past that appear at every new chapter. If only Kill just admit his weaknesses and let them both support each other, it would have work out better for me.

I think Pepper Winters still did what she did best with delivering her dark edgy romance. I wish she could get down to business and focus on the main climax much earlier because somewhere in the middle my attention is slipping away. However, this series did end with a bang and I'm sure fans of Book 1 will be eager to find out how it all ends for Kill and his Buttercup. Grasshopper coming up next? I hope so.
