Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.
Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.
To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.
For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.
For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.
For me to walk out the door.
For it all to be over.
Throne of Truth is the finale for the Truth and Lies duet. This is less intense in comparison to the first book, still, it’s remarkably wrapped up.
It begins at the end of Crown of Lies wherein Elle Charlston was abducted by Greg Gobson, her father’s best friend’s son and her childhood friend. Who would have thought this idiot was evil and Elle’s instincts were right all along. Penn knew something was sketchy on her sudden disappearance and he’ll do everything in his capability to find her and eventually as soon as he save her, it’s an opportunity to answer all her questions truthfully.
I made a guess on the previous book of who “Nameless” is and I hold on to it until the end….and I freaking got it! Glad I got it right and too bad it was too predictable I may say. I have to give big hands on Elle in this duet. Her character is consistently impressive throughout the story. She’s courageous, supportive and loyal. She knew the love of her life was an innocent man and deserved freedom. Penn was falsely accused for the crimes he didn’t committed and she fought by his side. She and Penn had been through a lot and I’m glad these two got the happiness they both deserved. I’m also glad it’s in dual POV and it’s nice to hear Penn’s thoughts.
As always, Pepper Winters delivered another great story. I recommend her books if you’re into dark romance novels.
