WOW!!! When I finished reading this book, I honestly did not know what genre to put this book in! And I was afraid to give anything away on Goodreads. I literally had to email the author to ask her explicitly which category she thought this story should be in. It is NOT dark/taboo/forbidden. What it most defitnitely is: sweeping, grand, thrilling, exciting, heartbreaking, joyous and life-affirming. . . and unlike ANYTHING you’ve ever read from Pepper Winters. Enjoy the ride!

EPIC READ ALERT!!! I'm not gonna lie, this baby took me 3 days to finish. It's a complex, sensational love story that I just wanted to savor. So powerful, so beautiful, so damn compelling. A true Pepper Winters masterpiece!

This book BLEW ME AWAY! It's unlike anything I've ever read before, and my god that's saying something! I haven't read every single one of Pepper's books, but I think it's safe to say that this is something completely different. Something new. Something fresh. Something heart

Pepper Winters and dark reads go hand in hand. Pepper Winters + contemporary romance = SAY WHAT??? When this lovely author announced she would be stepping away from the dark side to write a book that was so different to what we were used to getting from her, to say I was intrigued is an understatement. This was a book she was writing for herself. It

Don't you hate it when everyone loves a book but you? Le sigh. This review is actually painful for me to write. Why? Because I adore Pepper Winters. I’ve read the woman’s entire backlist, so when I saw she was coming out with a secret project and revealed the cover to this book, I was beyond thrilled. Heck, I couldn’t wait to get my grabby little hands on it.

When it landed on my kindle, I dropped everything and began reading…

Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
There are some books that take our breath away, some we love and some unforgettable. This book takes all these categories and I will even say, that this story is one of my favorite ever and that will stay in my mind forever.

While reading it, I wanted it to end fast because I couldn't wait to see how they would survive and live. At the other way, I never wanted it to end, as I was so captivated by their feelings, their survival, their almost death...

I wish I was worthy of writing this review.
I do not want to taint it with my words.
Maybe if I could have proven myself more in the past.
Maybe if I could still prove myself somehow.
I just don't know how and it hurts my soul. Deeply.
I am in so much pain. I wish I was more worthy...

If these sentences made your eyes bleed, then Unseen Messages by Pepper Winters is not your cup of tea. This book was full of dramatics and what if's.

This review will be hard to write, but here we go...

I have to punctuate one thing. I LOVE PEPPER WINTERS.
She is wonderful storyteller and one of my favourite dark romance authors.
This book though, is not dark romance. As Pepper herself wrote on her web site this is a survival romance.

But what's with the hype?
I absolutely hate when everyone likes a book and I am like.. meh... it was okay.
I kept asking myself: "Did I miss something?".
I have mixed feelings...

Not gonna lie, this was a looooong read… much longer than I anticipated… Did it have to be? I dunno. All I do know is that by the end, I was happy I read it.

This is the second Pepper read for me. I may have had some issues with the storyline in that one, but what I didn’t have issues with is her writing. Her writing is what pushed me to read this one too. That, after seeing the cover, of course, which I love!!!

The newest book of Pepper Winters was totally different from her previous works. I didn't know what to expect about this book, cause I went it blind, again.

Unseen Messages was like a modern Robinson Crusoe. But it is so much then that.
This book is about bad times, worse times and worst times.
This book is about good, better and the best times of life.
This book is about survival.

Total. Silence. I've never read such an excellent, well-built, carefully written story.
This book put my world upside down. The are ghoosebumps and I'm crying really hard. Even now. Why? Because all I feel is pure joy.


This is a book I went into absolutely blindly. I've heard about Pepper Winters but I've never read any of her books. (Recently, I've purchased Monsters in the Dark.) But I can say, she quickly became my favorite. She has a real power in her writing.

This is a survival romance novel

! Unseen Messages (Stand-alone). Epic love! What ifs! Life choices! Destiny! Cause & Effect!

“Love doesn’t live in first glances. Life doesn’t dwell in second chances. Our path exists in unseen messages.”

Unseen Messages (stand-alone) starts off as cryptic as its blurb. This is an epic love with story spanning some eight years if you count the extended epilogue.

It’s also a story of survival, self-reflection and growth, life choices, second chances, the what ifs, following or not followi

Well known from the Indebted series, she shown us spine tingling darkness and unimaginable depravities.

Unseen Messages is a beautiful modern day contemporary where the author reinvents herself with a new set of castaways. Life becomes a daily struggle, death is on the horizon and failure isn’t an option. There are no second chances, repeats or do overs. All that remains is survival.

Once within a song, a music lover and a broken man fell from the sky. It changed their lives forever...

I'm a huge fan of survival romances but they don't come around too often so when I heard about this one, I couldn't resist diving in especially after reading the blurb. The heroine and hero are strangers thrown together when they crash on a desert island forcing them to rely on each other for survival... and face the hidden desire they feel for each other!! A
Jessica  (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
As compared to Pepper Winters' previous books, this story is lighter... but I wouldn't necessarily call it light in the traditional sense of the word. There's an ominous, foreboding tone to this story. It's not dark as we've come to expect from this author, but you know right from the beginning that something disastrous is looming. By ignoring the signs, by allowing fate's messages to remain unseen, Estelle Evermore is headed to her doom. This story is tragic and heartbreaking and fraught with l ...more

Estelle finished her tour and really looks forward to some quiet time. Galloway was on his way to his new job. The Evermore family is looking forward to a family vacation. Fate brings them together with devastating consequences.

This was a very long story but oh so worth it!! I loved every second of this heartbreaking survival struggle of a stranded ‘family’. Not by blood but b

These characters....I fell hard for these people. Seriously. Just look at my status updates while reading this and you'll see!

I don't really know what to say here other than that I'm uber bummed. I love castaway tropes and couple that with the fact that I love the bejeebus out of this author, I'm sad to say this wasn't a win for me. I'm a painfully slow reader to begin with and my free time is not always condusive to reading books with a total reading time of...wait for it...18 hours long (it's over 80 chapters in length).

I just don't even know where to start with this book. There's so much that I want to say, but because of spoilers, I just can't. But I hope you I at least make you realise just how bone deep I loved this story. I mean, I'm not a fan of long books. I'm too easily distracted and I get bored waiting to find out how the story ends. I didn't realise when I first started, but Unseen Messages is close to 600 pages. 600 pages filled with such a powe

Overall Opinion: I'm a sucker for marooned romances, and this fit the bill. I was afraid for a time when I was balling (and my husband was snickering at me) that it wasn't going to end the way I wanted it to. The author, Pepper Winters, isn't known for fluffy sweet romances (she tends to go on the darker side) I started making my own horrible predictions. But rest assured -- she gives us an HEA and I would even say it was sweet! I liked it. My biggest complaint would be that I thin

She is one of my favorite authors!I love her writing and her books!Unfortunately this one was not good.Even though the plot wasn't so bad and reminds me a movie as far as I read it was slow and some parts wasn't necessary in my opinion.I really wanted to like it but I couldn't.

Hopefully you'll like it more than me!

Unseen Messages is an epic tale of survival, family, and best of all love. This story weaves together the lives of complete strangers and creates a bond between them that transcends life and death. Thrilling, action-packed, steamy, and tender, Unseen Messages is a novel that will crash land its way into your heart and will remain forever stranded. Another outstanding hit for Pepper Winters!

This book was addicting as hell. I've always had an interest in castaway stories, and this one swept me away--oh I cringe at my own pun. Anyway, I really liked this book! The characters grew on me, it took awhile, but they did. The plot however got me from the beginning, I wanted to know what was behind the next corner. I couldn't stop thinking about this book when I walked away from it, and to me that's the sign of a damn good read.

Ok I have to confess I'm a Pepper Winters virgin. Yes that's right in spite of so many friends raving about her books I've never been tempted to take the plunge until now. What's changed? Well the rather unusual synopsis for this story had me perplexed about just what would actually happen to the characters . Clearly not as dark or disturbing as previous offerings from this author but nevertheless a haunting adventure that questions what we perceive as normal .
The basic premise is simple, how of
