ARC: Soulless - Sarah J. Pepper (Once Wicked #1)

Release Date: February 23, 2016
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Synopsis: Our love is imperfect in the most perfect way. It is love done our way. Raw. Unconventional. Sexy as hell. Most importantly, it is honest to the core, or so I think. One little, white lie shouldn't do so much damage. Yet, it changes me forever.
The worst part is that Declan whispered that sweet nothing out of protection. My safety is on the forefront of his mind, especially since there are others who’d hurt me simply to get at him. I never think that he would be the one to cut me so deeply. And it all starts with that first prick—the night he saved my life.


His perilous stare deepened as his grip fastened around my waist. The maniacal thoughts passing over his eyes confirmed that I wasn’t the only one who wanted all the space between us eliminated.

could hardly breathe when his gaze fell to my lips. It left me speechless. It was the very way a passing glance could leave you without words. But Declan didn’t just take a glimpse. No, he unapologetically looked me over. He loved me, but didn’t say them in so many words. Yet, I heard them all the same. I heard them with each moan that echoed in the air. I felt them as he held me gently in his arms. Even if I didn’t feel the desire radiating off of him in a fury of passion, he bore that intensity in his gaze. The world around us melted away until there was on me and him.

My heart was stolen by this book. I am a huge sucker for fairy tales and this book puts a sick twist on them. Needless to say, I loved it even further. Declan and Piper are definitely on my favorite book couples list. 

They steal each other's love and souls and breath. 

I never was a fan of these particular characters in the original fairy tales but Sarah J. Pepper does a fantastic job at weaving this storyline together to make you love them. I want to tell you their names so bad but I promised no spoilers.

There's passion. There's action. There's romance. There's desire. It seems overwhelming but it was pieced together in a sense where you actually cannot seem to get enough.

But I am going to say that you need to read this book. It is beautifully written and I definitely fell in love with Declan. There is the hint of creepy in a messed up fairytale. Don't the evil deserve love too?

With a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, I want to invite you all to read this book. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds. ;)
