Review: Ruin & Rule (Pure Corruption MC #1) by Pepper Winters

Title: Ruin & Rule
Author: Pepper Winters
Series: Pure Corruption MC #1
Genre: dark romance

"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 . . ."


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?

After a long thorough discussion between the two,

Final verdict:


I know I’m in a minority here and even my kind hearted bestie rated it “4 stars” but not me, I’m more the bitchy picky one.

Before this happens

You have to know we both love PW’s books and when it was released we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it.

So what made me so angry?
It was not because of the cliffy at the end which was bound to happen when Kill overestimated his smartness or that he thought nobody could mess with him but for the fact Pepper winters delivered such an unrealistic plot with lot of flaws, too many inner monologues, repetitive scenes and unnecessarily dragging of the story to the point of boredom. Also this was supposed to be a MC book right? but I didn’t see a single MC action going on. Wearing the club patch, riding motorcycles, having a nickname and eating pizzas/burgers along with other members doesn’t make one a MC club.

Ok, not everything was bad! Pepper’s writing was still spectacular no doubt in that, and adding flashbacks every now and then made it more interesting. What I usually like about her books is that she gives one bad-ass heroine and the ‘forgetful girl/woman’ in this book is yet another strong and feisty creation from PW. Certain actions of her are debatable but I loved her, adored her courage, strength, passion and love even when she was a prisoner in her own mind.

On other hand I had this love/hate relationship with Kill aka “super human”. No matter how much blood he loses or has a hairline fracture he has a strength of an elephant. I get it what made him the person he become but the constant avoiding of confiding his secrets everytime she asked begged him was so pissing! Investing so much time just to get a disappointing story made me furious.

Will I read the sequel?? Uhhmmm...lets see, Do I want to see how stupid and raged filled monkey Kill is going to be and not to forget there’s going to be huge ass drama between the two, plus angry sex, make up sex, sex sex in every page and ooh ooh… loads of green eyes!!


I hope all her future books are winner for us though:D

♥Buddy read with awesome bestie Eda♥

P.S: Thanks babe for not blocking my number, while I was bombarding your phone with my not so subtle texts;P muahh!
