A Brand New Tangled & Tempting Romance from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters.
"Must be slim, able to stand for long periods of time, and be impervious to the cold.”
The headline caught my attention.
“Hours are negotiable, pay is minimal, clothing absolutely forbidden.”
The second line piqued my curiosity.
“Able to hold your bladder and tongue, refrain from opinions or suggestions, and be the perfect living canvas.”
The third made me scowl.
“Other attributes required: non-ticklish, contortionist, and obedient. Must also enjoy being studied while naked in a crowd.”
The fourth made me shudder.
“Call or email ‘YOUR SKIN, HIS CANVAS’ if interested in applying.”
The final made my heart race.
I should’ve kept scrolling past the advertisement.
I should’ve applied for the boring receptionist job at minimum wage.
I should’ve clicked on any other job where I got to keep my clothes on.
But I didn’t.
My interview is tomorrow…

I seriously cannot wait to read book #2!! This was amazing and I could not put it down!
Definitely worth the read!
I’ve been waiting for this one and for good reason! This is definitely a darker theme that will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what’s going to happen next. Throw in a suspense element mixed in with true love and the ultimate sacrifice, you won’t be able to put it down. The ending will have you begging Pepper Winters for book 2 NOW!
Covering up secrets...painting human canvases
Earning a complicated love comes at a price, one Olin doesn’t understand because Gil has past secrets that he’s hidden from her.
He’s the master body painter and she’s the canvas. There is no us there can never be an us with a hidden past lingering in the present.
I was expecting more artistry from the body painter instead this was a story about Gil’s haunting past that he’s not willing to share with Olin. The mystery of this past haunts these pages for the entire premise of the book.
The reader is unaware of Gil’s past and what led to him working as a body painter. As we follow the lives of both characters we are given a slow integrated backstory of their past relationship and how it affected the present.
If it’s even possible I’d venture to say Gil was more of a sexual beast then Ren. Pepper loves her dark dangerous monsters by giving her male characters a tortured dark soul.
I hate feeling this anxious towards a character. It takes away from my enjoyment. This long lingering secret held back the progression of this story.
The savage sex scenes were redundant. Instead of quenching my thirst of the desire and lust that brewed between them for seven years I felt bored with the redundancy of the violent nature with which he behaved.
Pepper is the queen of evading secrets, but enough is enough and I lost interest. Rather than be interested that Gil and Olin have reconnected I’m skimming the book to find a connection. In the past, I appreciated the words Pepper wrote, but this time it seemed stagnant with very little progression.
The dialogue went round and round in circles dishing out the same lines with sex being the only thing progressing these two characters.
The unveiling of secrets was few and far between and there wasn’t enough story to push this story forward. Yet, Pepper ended with the most epic shocking truth which had me doubting my distaste for this story. I do need closure even though this was a difficult journey, I’m certain I will persevere with more tortuous words.
Don’t get me wrong Pepper is a true artist. Her covers alone are stunning. Each one is eye catching and this one certainly paints a pretty picture. Yet what I envisioned and what was delivered didn’t line up.
