The Body Painter (Master of Trickery Duet, #1) by Pepper Winters

September 11, 2019

This was heartbreaking, all-consuming and addictive. I am an emotional wreck after reading this. How will I wait for the sequel? Ms. Winters, you must be a sadist to let us wait for the part two 🙂

Gil was Olin’s soulmate. Her rock, her tormentor, her everything and then he just left and pushed her away. After a few years, she accidentally runs upon him and the intense chemistry is still there. But he changed. There are new secrets, new tormentor and new heartache. How much can she take? Everything, because he is still the one and only.

This is not a happy story, it is dark, passionate, unfair, intense, emotional and cruel. It is also a love story. And in every love story, people hurt and bleed and tear up their heart that the pain is almost physical. I went through the roller coaster with this story, I cried with unfairness for a young boy, got angry toward people cruelty and wielding they power, I wanted to smack them and shake them, but most of all I felt for both of them. So much happened because of other people selfishness and the life they were put in, so much hurt because they just wanted to protect each other. I was wondering how much more can she take? I guess with our soulmates, we can take everything!


There is such strong chemistry between them, but his secrets are killing both of them. I had my suspicions about Olive when more of the past was revealed and I understood his reasoning but still…couldn’t he just confide in her and maybe, just maybe there would be some light. I missed just a little bit of happiness, one pure moment when things could be ok for them, there is none in the whole book, so I really hope they have their HEA in the second book.
I literally can’t wait to see the outcome!
