“There was hate once. Hate born from dangerous attraction and fate’s cruel design.
There was love once. Love destined to kill us if we didn’t surrender to our war.”

Eleanor Grace suffers an awful affliction. She’s falling for a man who doesn’t deserve her affection or her forgiveness. But there is no cure, so she does something reckless, stupid—she throws safety to the sea a

This book starts from where the previous ends, when Eleanor decided to gamble on her body and heart. She did the unforgivable and rattled Sullivan's world... Eleanor has no idea if this will save her future or ruin everything - but she's ready to deal with the consequences. 💥

Sully has always dreamed of Eleanor, but he never imagined his dream would come true - and turn into his nightmare! She's everything he ever wanted and everything he shouldn't have... However, Eleanor is not like other g

'THIRD A KISS' is the third full length romance book in Pepper Winter's 'Goddess Isles' series. It picks up where the second Twice a Wish book left off.

Wow!! Perfectly perfect, perfection at its best!
As you can see I was hooked from the get go. Chasing my quarantine blues and spending time in paradise was the perfect time to indulge in this series.
This series is going from strength to strength, ea

Great book, terrific cliffhanger!


Wow again! Pepper Winters is great at creating some killer storylines and fantastic cliffhangers. I am just glad that I am not reading these as they come out so I don’t have to wait months to start the next one. Sully is still the God of the island in this book and still has his Goddesses that he bought from sex traffickers. In this book we find that all is not as rosy for these Goddesses as Sully would like to think.

In the first book, he told Eleanor that al

I honestly have no words. Pepper Winters introduces us to a alluring new world full of love, lies and deceit. A world that is as beautiful as it is deadly.

'She could never pry us apart as we were two pieces of the same whole. I belonged to her as much as she belonged to me.'

I am honestly not gonna say much cause I’ve got the next book to read but I gotta say, this series is definitely one of my favourites this year and I would highly recommend it!

Love tasted metallic and fragrant, sweet and sour, spicy and forbidden. But it smelled of fresh rain and new beginnings, of shared lust and musk, of hard-earned truth.

A laugh was what made me fall head over heels for Sullivan Sinclair.
A laugh that Jealousy told me was impossible.
A laugh that spread out over the ocean, clear and wonderful…
…and all mine."

This series is addictive indeed, Pepper Winters is the queen of dark romance!

How strange that I reached the same percentage point as Deliver and giving up for the same purpose. Although I might go back to this one eventually considering how invested I am and that I own the whole series. Again nothing against Pepper Winters, she’s an amazing writer. The captivity trope just isn’t for me.

Here’s my review for what I finished:

Anyone else not feel bad that Sully’s basically got road rash on his dick? Just me? Well I did admit that I’m a vengeful little creature.

What. Did I. Just read?! The amount of flipflopping of emotions left me with whiplash. I love him. I hate him. I love her. I can't trust her. It was an emotional rollercoaster and I knew something had to give. The tension was swelling and this couple were about to burst!

There is no amount of "OMG" that can prepare you for this book. I read the first two and was floored with how much it consumed me. I always love her books but these are just...WOW. Sully really owns a piece of my heart right now after this book in particular. I lost my shit at page one of this book and messaged Pepper to tell her she ruined me for any sleep I was expecting to get that night - and it did not let up after that. There are so many layers to this story, some are amazing, and some jus ...more
Oh wow!! I am totally hooked on this series now! The reveals in this instalment were huge, and the new things that happened had me on the edge of my seat! If you are a reader who loves an exciting dark read, this series is for you! It is definitely not to be missed!!!

I am moving on right away to the fourth book and I am dying to know what is going to happen next!
I am very glad the whole series is out now, because the cliffhangers in each tale has been drastic!!! I literally haven’t been able to

Third A Kiss continues to ramp up the passion and intrigue of the Goddess Isles series, and Pepper makes it hurt so good. Well, damn. Jinx did a bad bad thing by unleashing the sexual beast in Sully, and now look what happened! “I

Wwwooowww! Pepper Winters is the 👑Queen of Dark Romance👑. These characters are everything right now. Angsty, romance, and brutality all swirled into one relationship. We are so far from where we started.

Pika and Skittles can they just be real and be mine. Pika kills me with Sully... hanging upside down on his head. I think they really run the island. They just let Sully think he does. 😉

When I started reading Third a Kiss, it was apparent one of my theories was right. My thoughts were, OMG!!! I

Omg I can’t catch my breath! This book was so phenomenal and had me on edge throughout the entire book! The whole series is genius, brilliant, unique beyond anything you could imagine. Sullivan Sinclair is alpha, sexy, he’s brilliant, he commands attention and makes no apologies for being who he is. He’s the ultimate book boyfriend and I can’t stop swooning over him.

I’m so addicted to this series. I crave every single word written and am desperate for more.

Ho-ly ISH! This book! I almost don't even know where/how to start.

Once a Myth and Twice a Wish were absolutely amazing...but Third a Kiss?? Absolutely Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it! Legit I am having to pause and think about this review because I cannot find the words to do it justice. Words like perfection, stunning, and HOT even pale in comparison to what this story truly is.

We pick up right where Pepper left us at the end of Twice a Wish and...OMG OMG OMG OMG, no soon as

I was super lucky to get an early copy of Third a Kiss (Goddess Isles #3) by Pepper Winters. Eleanor and Sully's feelings are put to the test in more ways than one. Sully continues to battle his inner demons and trust issues. Eleanor comes to terms with falling for Sully, a monster with a heart of gold. But does a relationship with Sully mean a life sentence of agony and ecstasy with a man she is desperate to understand? 

Pepper serves up love, lust, lies, and revenge with a kiss of suspense that

Every book that follows the last one in this series is a new experience, a new paradise and you can’t even begin to imagine how you’ll feel with the next one, because reading this series is a whole new level in Pepper Winters world.

Eleanor knows that falling for Sully is wrong in every way, but she can’t stop it and she feels the need to prove to Sully that there’s something between them, something that connect

Im still speechless and flying with violent need after reading book 3 of this seductive series. Pepper definitely knows how to weave her sorcery just like her anti-hero Sully in this book but it’s Eleanor’s strength that will leave your heart pumping so much lust, want and angst into your soul .

Book 2, well that ending was the most do or die moment for Eleanor and her bravery. This story picks up just from that heart stopping ending and what transpires will leave your body wanting to jump into

Whew! This book really got my adrenaline pumping! I have to say, I am loving this series. We finally get some answers in this book. And man, I have never been so glad to be right. Third a Kiss starts of with bang (hehe) and is nonstop intensity for the entire book. It’s sexy, and suspenseful, and so angsty. I loved every minute of it! If you haven’t started the series, go back and start with Once a Myth. You will definitely not want to miss out on this series!
