'We met in a nightmare. The in-between world where time had no power over reason. We fell in love. We fell hard. But then we woke up. And it was over . . .'
RUIN & RULE
She is a woman divided. Her past, present, and future are as twisted as the lies she's lived for the past eight years. Desperate to get the truth, she must turn to the one man who may also be her greatest enemy.
He is the president of Pure Corruption MC. A heartless biker and retribution-deliverer. He accepts no rules, obeys no one, and lives only to reap revenge on those who wronged him. And now he has stolen her, body and soul.
Can a woman plagued by mystery fall in love with the man who refuses to face the truth? And can a man drenched in darkness forgo his quest for vengeance - and finally find redemption?
Ruin & Rule is the darkly addictive, decadent first novel in bestselling author Pepper Winters' PURE CORRUPTION MC series where friendship means family and feelings never die.
This book kicked my ass, and finishing it left me with the worst book hangover imaginable. I could not turn away, it was absolutely captivating, and utterly brutal.
The main character wakes up to horrible circumstances and it’s one of the most heartbreaking plot devices I've read lately. The way the past keeps slipping in and out and mingling with the present… She has all these feelings, but no way explain them. She has the strength to fight back, but not the will. There was just so much pain and longing that it almost hurt to read. So many things unexplained, and so many questions asked. I spent most of the book muttering to myself, while trying not to scream, or cry.
This was not a quiet, simple read. This was a stand up, pace the room, set it down before you throw it, sniff back tears kind of read. The kind of reading experience that makes the people around you give you weird looks because you're talking to your book again.
Then there was the fact that it was oh, so hot. So, so hot, in a “my body knows you even if my mind doesn't” way; in that star-crossed, soulmate, bonded, ‘OMG! Amazing sex!’ way. So please, do yourself a favor. Don't ask questions, just go, read it, now!

I am a lover of all things Pepper. I love her twisty mindfucks, her story lines, and the characters she brings life to. And these two have now catapulted to the top of my list of all-time favorites.
Kill is the President of an MC, Pure Corruption, and has more layers than an onion. His past is all he lives for, but when his past comes to tangle with the present, will he be able to believe his own eyes?
So, this couple… PERFECTION! From the beginning you root for these two, even if you are as in the dark as Cleo is. The passion that flows between them is palpable. But remember, passion does not always equal a good thing. It can include hate, contempt, lust, and vengeance.
I really, really liked this book and can NOT wait for more from this series! I just hope you all have a very good case on your Kindle, because in true Pepper fashion, her writing will have you wanting to throw it at least once!

Pepper Winters is a New York Times and USA Today international bestseller. She loves dark romance, star-crossed lovers, as well as the forbidden and taboo. She strives to write a story that makes readers crave what they shouldn't, and delivers complex plots and unforgettable characters that keep readers talking long after the last page is turned.
On a personal note she loves to travel, has an addiction to creme brulee, and is married to an incredible Canadian who puts up with her endless work hours and accompanies her on signings. She's also a firm believer that the impossible can become possible.
