Undecided

The second book in The Goddess Isles series has left me unsure about Sully. He’s my least favourite male character I have read and hate he’s yes/no personality. It’s alienating me for feeling anything for him and wish Elanore would just turn her back on him and Pepper find another male character for her to end with. Sadly if the third book doesn’t redeem him or offer someone else for a fierce and great Jinx character, I’m not sure I will continue to read this series. I’ve loved all of Pepper’s other dark romance series so I’ve got everything crossed that the third book will be the turning point.

This book is edgy and very dark, it is still sexy and all the feels a good dark romance book should be. I really enjoyed it!

Deliciously Epic

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 more obsessed with this series!

Goddess Series

Twice a Wish (Goddess Series, Book 2) brings out more of Sullivan's complex character. I loved learning more about Sullivan's history. A dark romance that is extremely twisted, listen at own peril. Looking forward to listening to the next audio in this dark romance series.


Narrators Sarah Puckett, Scott Rider brought so much more to this audio. A perfect performance dual narration. Sarah Puckett is my favourite female narrator and Scott Ryder is excellent at performing Sully. Sarah has the ability to play out the role in such a realistic way. Scott's inflection was smooth and brought out the tangible sentiments.

...😬 another cliffhanger?,., 👎🏻😣😖😡

Eleanor was still annoying (though a bit better in this book) and Sully was got really weird. How can a red blooded male and an alpha at that let someone else sleep with the woman he “loved?” In other words Sully was pimping her even though he didn’t need the money? So, did he love her or was that his twisted way of pretending to be an alpha while nowhere near that title. He didn’t control anything, he just came off as a money hungry bleeding heart wannabe.
I wish I didn’t waste my credit, nothing like what I thought book 2 would be going... just a continuation of drawing out longing 🙄🙄 2 books? If there’s a third I’m not doing it. This feels too lifetimey or twisted dark romance soap...the near misses, the constant interruptions got to be too much.

ETA: I dragged and persevered and finished yet another cliffhanger. So frustrating. I’m no longer interested in this story. I enjoyed Tears of Tess (as twisted as it was but it didn’t feel like I HAD to get the second book.)

While I like the idea of the story, it was at times too wordy like the author was supposed to meet a word quota and/or make us buy the next book. Not for me.

Dark, Savage, and Intense

NOLA504NERDS BLOG
“Unapologetically kinky, dismally dark, and deliciously deviant.” (Pepper Winters)

My review for books 2 through 4 will be minimal as far as the story line to avoid spoilers. But everything you need is in the synopsis. First things first: these are NOT standalone books. Each has a cliffhanger, and the series must be read in order. Trust me, you don’t want to start book 1 unless you are prepared to read/listen to the whole series. Also, this series will literally kill you. Seriously. I’ve got my coffin picked out. You’ll die a very sweet and euphoric death though.

“I wanted to snatch her, savage her. I wanted to rip her from the heavens and bring her firmly into my hell.”
Book 2 is more graphic and triggering than book 1. In this book, you learn more of Sullivan’s past and why he’s become the way he is. Pepper’s writing really made me understand the dichotomy of Sully’s character. He’s overwhelming in the best way. Meeting Eleanor is challenging his control and making him question his life. Eleanor is full of hope, determination, and strength. She’s struggling with her new reality, which causes her to make some bad decisions. But who could blame her after being abducted and thrown into this new life? The electricity between Sully and Jinx continues to grow. The story is spellbinding and full of so much pain and passion. And that cliffhanger ending… I’m speechless!

Readers, get ready for a ride that is dark, intense, raw, twisted, exhilarating, exciting, kinky, sexy, dirty, addicting, angsty, full of internal turmoil, and scary in the most scintillating way. A ride that pushes your limits and makes you crave everything that Goddess Isles has to offer. Pepper Winters is truly talented! She is detailed and describes everything with such perfection, it makes it easy to picture everything. This is one of those series that will stick with you forever.

The narration is done in true Duet style. The flow was nothing short of amazing. Sarah Puckett embodies Eleanor and her tenacity, stubbornness, and spunky attitude. Sully is one of the darkest and most alpha characters I’ve met. Scott Rider couldn’t be more perfect in portraying him. Scott perfectly delivers Sully’s dark, twisted, and complex character. Sarah and Scott ARE Jinx and Sully. Sarah expertly delivers Eleanor’s anger, lust, desire, and emotional turmoil. Scott expertly delivers Sully’s raw emotions that are full of lust, anger, desire, jealousy, internal turmoil, and hardcore alpha male persona. Their duet narration plays out the story in a very realistic way and makes you love the characters even more. When I’m done with this series, I will definitely be searching for more books by these 2 narrators!

Totally addicted to this series..book 2

This was such a fabulous hot series...book 2 continues where we left off and as a listener, it was so wonderful to have dual narration and Sarah and Scott were phenomenal. Love the fact that Eleanor tried to run away and continue to stand up to Sullivan. Ends with a cliffhanger and off to book 3 !

Great second installment... love the narration!

“Twice a Wish” is the second book in the Goddess Isle series, and we begin to discover more about Sullivan’s past, the reasons behind his actions, and how meeting Eleanor has now challenged his control, as he falters with his strict adherence to personal and business standards. Eleanor’s hope is shown in her strength and determination for freedom as she continues her defiance, but another hope brews as she discovers the new feelings she has for Sully may not only be one-sided. This installment may seem slow at times, but the twisted dark plot continues, and we’re left with another gripping ending that will have you surely diving into the next book! Sarah Puckett and Scott Rider’s narration was amazing. I love the duet performance! The emotions are captured perfectly, and it makes me love these characters even more!

Ohhhhhh, the FEELS!!!

Pepper Winters continues on with her Goddess Isles series. We really get to know Sully and Eleanor during the second book while they also get to know each other as well. Sully is fully aware of the ties Eleanor has wrapped around his heart and wants to loosen them. It's fascinating how much h I dispised Sully in the first book. However, he really starts to win you over in this book. Eleanor is holding onto her strength. She sees what she does to Sully and tries to play it. Lord this story sneaks up on you and just hooks right into you!! It might be messed up. It might be dark. But it's great!!

I love that the narrators were the same from the first book. Sarah Puckett and Scott Rider bring these two characters to life! Puckett was fabulous! I loved that she didn't make Eleanor sound weak. She might have been in a difficult situation but she had a steel spine and Puckett really gave her strength. It's hard to find that line between that girl that has been taken and is scared to the strength she shows. Sarah Pucket brought her to life. I really enjoyed Rider's deep voice. Sully is a no-nonsense voice that edges on cruel while still sounding sexy.

Dark & Twisted Brilliance🎧📚🎧 Awesome Narration!

Pepper Winters continues to blow me away with her “Goddess Isle” series. It is a dark and twisted story and I am loving every moment of it. This book picks up right where the first book, “Once a Myth” left off, if you have not read or listened to that yet stop right here and get that book pronto, it is a must read/listen. Eleanor survived her first full experience in Euphoria, as did Sully, he has been struggling with what Eleanor does to him, she makes him feel and want things he should not have. Eleanor reads him like no one ever could, it surprises Sully but he continues to fight what he is feeling and continues to push her away. But as Eleanor learns more about him the more she understands and she starts to push back. I loved learning more about Sully Sinclair, is he a genius or a madman or maybe he walks the line between both, either way he has some deep and serious trust issues. At times I think he is at war with his inner demons, a very personal psychological warfare. It broke my heart to learn his troubling past and what he went thru as a child. It gives an excellent insight why he does the things he does. I loved how everything plays out in this book, there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt moments, some thrilling and suspenseful moments, some hot kink and a very twisted very screwed up possible love story. Pepper Winters, thank you for this amazing story, I am looking forward to what comes next for Sully and his jinx!

Sarah Puckett and Scott Rider are talented narrators and voice artists. They continue to bring these characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of the characters is exceptional, they truly grasped who they are as they humanize, allowing you to hear their emotions in their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another amazing listen🎧

AMAZING

This series just keep getting more intense, seriously I couldn't stop listening, it's so enthralling and captivating that I wasn't able to put it down.
Sully and Jinx chemistry is off the charts and explosive, even though they try to fight this pull between them.
There are many things happening and I can't wait to see what's happening next.
The writing is perfect, all the scenes the descriptions just so vivid that it actually makes you believe there is such place as the Goddess Islands.

The narration was amazingly perfect, I love the great duet that are Sarah Puckett and Scott Rider, their voices can make you feel everything that's going on, all the emotions are so tangible with their amazing performance.

Twice a Wish

Twice a Wish is a continuation of Eleanor and Sully's story and is just as good as Once a Myth. Sully has his faults for sure but I love the way he is so caring and compassionate about animals.

I love all the sexual tension between Sully and Eleanor. They can deny it all they want, but their chemistry is off the charts. There is so much going on in this book. OMG! That cliffhanger is so intense. I can't wait to see how Sully and Eleanor are going to handle this predicament they have found themselves in. Run, Eleanor, run!

Sarah Puckett and Scott Rider have brought out all the emotions of these characters in their duet narration.

Chemistry is on fire but not much going on outside of that...

I like this book but I don't love it like other Pepper Winters series such as Dollars. Eleanor and Sully continue their relationship dancing between dislike and desire. Their perfervid expression of lust is palpable throughout the book. You learn more about Sully's background and childhood some of which aligns with Eleanor's beliefs particularly regarding animal cruelty and vegetarianism. Not much happens other than that which makes it feel stretched out. I will read the next book because I like the chemistry but more sub plots required to elevate this series.
