Review: Sin and Suffer by Pepper Winters

Publication Date:  1/26/2016

Series: Pure Corruption MC #2
Rating:  5 Stars

Official Blurb:

"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 am abso-flipping-lutely floored by Sin and Suffer.  After re-reading my review for Ruin and Rule and counting the sheer number of times I used the f-word in the three short paragraphs I wrote, I knew that this was going to be one of the best books to start off 2016 reading.  I wasn’t wrong either.  Winters throws us back in the Pure Corruption MC world just as Dagger Rose MC rocks Pure’s world.  Cleo’s life has shattered as memories run rampart in her mind and Kill’s dark secret is finally revealed.  I seriously screamed the end of Ruin and Rule because of how it was ended and how readers were left in the thick of the action.  Not cool, Ms. Winters, so not f-ing cool.

With Ruin and Rule, readers were introduced into the dark MC world that Winters creates with beautiful darkness. Yet with Sin and Suffer, the darkness begins to fade as Kill’s plot set into motion so many years before finally comes to fruition.  You’ll honestly be shocked when you find how far the rabbit hole burrows with Kill’s intentions.  I won’t beat around the bush and say that everyone gets a HEA ending because frankly in a world as dark as Pure Corruption deaths are bound to happen. 

You’ll find yourself many times while reading Sin and Suffer nearly at your breaking point.  I can think of at least six times I had to put it down and walk away for fear that my heart would shatter even more.   This book is chaotic and yet so damn beautiful at the same time.  It shows readers that justice comes in many different forms and when it’s dealt, it is shift.  While I am sad to see the Kill and Cleo’s story arch end, I am anxious to see if this series continues on with more of the side characters.
