There was a man once. A man who dealt in myth and secrets, hiding behind his mask, making me hunger and wish to know the truth.”

Eleanor Grace belongs to the man and the monster, hating them both but unable to deny that something links them. Something she doesn’t want to feel, someth

In this difficult time of Coronavirus, I had the pleasure of reading a book that kept me sane, even if only for a while. Every time I had to stop reading, I waited to get back to this wonderful world Pepper created. 💜
Her writing was like poetry - I felt the sand under my feet... the taste of the fruits... the breeze of the sea in my hair... and the HOT chemistry between Sully and Eleanor. 🔥🔥🔥

'TWICE A WISH' is the second full length dark romance book in Pepper Winter's 'Goddess Isles' series. It picks up where the second book left off. Spoken in 'dual perspectives.'

All I can say is WOW!

This story had me from word one and I was engrossed all the way to that Phenomenal ending. The intricacies of the plot were original, surprising and fantastic. As the heroine Eleanor/Jinx argued different points with her owner/captor Sully, I wanted to argue as well. He is a complex man and in the first book I didn’t think he could be redeemable at all, but we got to see him as a good man in certain ways.

Bella -
A HEART WAS LIKE a sea. In one beat, it could be ruthlessly cold, cavernously deep, and protective of its secrets, yet in the next, it could be blissfully warm, wondrously calm, and piercingly clear. That was my heart. A complex ecosystem of darkness and light. Hate and lust. Forgiveness and revenge.


Whom does Sullivan ACTUALLY hate? Humans or Women?

In my first review, I forgot to mention this because I was busy with getting used to the story, BUT...

I have been camping this weekend and just got home but I wanted to write a quick blurb about this exciting book!

This is the second instalment and I found it way more exciting than the first. We got to learn about Sully and why he is the way he is. I was really glad about that because I needed to see some “good” in that man! In the first book I actually hated him!!! Lol! I am happy to report he’s a little better in this book! Although he still has a long way to go!

You know what pisses me off the most? Sully’s ideals when it comes to the islands aren’t bad in theory. For instance, I agree that we are tethered to societal norms, especially women. If he had just done it the right way, I’d fucking applaud him for his genius.

I think the islands, maybe the elixir or a bit of everything makes people delusional. Sully the most delusional of all but his goddesses as well. The only ones that appear to remain unscathed are Cal and Jealousy.

Review of Once a Myth ➤

This series got even more delicious with book numero dos! I'm entranced by Sully and I cannot get enough of his inner conflict. He is such a contradiction - human and vulnerable; monstrous and vicious; caring and kind; not to mention the fact that he buys women for the pleasure of men! I hate him. I love him. I'm Eleanor.

I felt like I was really able to get inside Sully's head. I'm beginning to understand the dichotomy of his character. On one hand,
Raise your hand if you ever been personally victimized by Pepper Winters...


Ok, again, I need a little bit of time to figure out the rating for this. Twice a Wish, the continuation of Once a Myth, is equally disturbing and intensely wicked. And even though some parts had my stomach churning, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enthralled by this nefarious tale. Just like the first book, this ends in a massive cliffhanger, and I'm just SO confused with everything that's going on.

I’ve reached my undoing... and it’s only book two.

‘TWICE A WISH,’ Book 2 in the Goddess Isles series by Pepper Winters, is a blazing inferno of heat radiating throughout your mind, body, and soul.

Bombarded with pleasure, compacted with sexy sinful desires, a drum roll of antagonizing animalistic tendencies.. in a disheveled state.

Can I remind you again it’s only book two out of a five book series and I feel so intoxicated with what I just read that I’m drunk on all things of Goddess Isles.

Pepper did something amazing with this book. She touched a theme that is very close to my heart. No spoilers, but she pulled at my heartstrings and made Sullivan my new cinammon roll. A very dangerous cinammon roll, but he is all mine!

"If you were an animal, then you'll be the most dangerous of them all. You would have the power to shred me limb from limb.
Your claws would kill me.
Your teeth would devour me.
If you were an animal, Goddess Jinx, then I would have to fucking bow to you."

Wow! Wow! Wow!
This book immersed me in this dark tropical fairy tale, again.
The story of Goddesses, Gods and monsters.

You have no idea what's coming for you. The slow burn, the angst, and everything in between. I am going to die before the ending of this series. Dark romance is my favorite thing to read. Pepper is, by far, one of the best authors out there for it. If you haven't read her yet, start now, you'll be happy you did!

Just when you think that nothing can top your favorite Pepper Winters's book, she goes and writes these books.

The Goddess Isles Series started so strong with Once A Myth where I was easily immersed into this world of seductive fantasies. Twice A Wish conquered my heart even more and left me utterly speechless! I’m blown away by all the emotion this book delivered. I wanted to know more about Sully, this enigmatic man, and I was served with a heartbreaking story that showed that he’s so much more than meets the eye.

Again I promised a zero spoiler review to Pepper and it will really be challenging as the synopsis is so vague!

What to tell you?

That this is the second book of the series and starts where the cliffhanger left us and that I will end on another HUGE cliffhanger! Think something when the killer is unleashed and will pounce on his next victim well, that’s something similar.

You just NEED to hold the third book already.

This Book Is Not For Everyone!!!!

I’m not even sure this book is for me lol.

After book one you all know how I felt towards this series, it’s very different from what pepper usually writes. All her dark romances are always so real and gritty and that’s why I love them but for me this series is the total opposite. Most of the time in book 2 I felt like I was reading a completely different author. In book one we got to know sully and jinx a little and we discovered that both of them are vegetarians

The second is going to knock you off your axis and turn this paradise into a whirlwind of lust and major angst.

Get ready to be blown away. All I can really say is Eleanor has some major balls in the things she does to Sully. I was happy dancing all the way through these chapters.

DELICIOUSLY EPIC! So brilliant! The chemistry, the angst, the anticipation, heat, it all crackles heavily on each page. It’s an amazing work of art being created.

Each series I think I couldn’t possibly favor another and yet, the Author knocks this out of this world. It’s amazing.

Each chapter I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Legit I felt like I was holding my breath. The anticipation, the craving for what would happen next made me feel like I’m an addict jonesing for the next bit. I couldn’t be m

"I did feel something for her. Something I refused to accept. Something I wished would die. And that vulnerability only amplified my need to be cruel. To keep her far away from the parts of me that could one day belong to her."

Pepper Winters is a goddess of words with a talent for storytelling like no other.

This was the second part of a five-book series and I'm obsessed with it!

With the cliffhanger in book 1, I was pretty eager to jump into this book and find out what happened. I just knew there was no way Sully would actually offer up Jinx to a stranger. No way....he had feelings. He wasn’t going to be a monster, right???

Ugh!!! I wanted to strangle him!! How could he!!! Reading the beginning of book 2 just reaffirmed how much I hated Sully. Nothing changed from book 1......until.....something changed.

This book started right where we left Sully Sinclair & Jinx. I now have a new favorite series it is everything. You don't know if to hate Sully or worship at his feet. One thing that is undeniable is the crackle of chemistry between Sully & Jinx raw animalistic hunger, however they are the only ones trying to avoid it. What Sully doesn't realize is him & Jinx have more in commend than he knows lover of animals and that is when Jinx gets a new friend that has claimed her Skittles, a parrot Sully ...more
