She has a secret.
I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.
I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn't realized how far I could fall or what I'd do to get free.
He has a secret.
I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.
I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.
One secret destroys them.

Honestly, I went into reading this book knowing it was going to be great because I love Pepper's writing style, but I didn't expect the overwhelming magnitude of the storyline. From the excerpts, teaser and synopsis, I had no idea how truly heavy the feelings would run. I didn't understand how emotional I would be, how much I would actually think on the subject matter. Most all of the characters had horrific backgrounds and/or shocking present lives.
There are so many factors that I can't write about without spoiling the book for someone that hasn't read it. I stayed up all night reading. It had my attention on so many levels, layer after layer of interest. I was enthralled by the details, amazed by how I person could live the life Fox lived.
Fight with honour, fight with discipline, fight with vengeance.
Then, I bawled my eyes out during the heartbreaking parts.
Hours inched past as I toyed with metal and fire and sweat. Working with such unforgiving materials was a reminder that no matter how set in stone we seemed, we could always change. We could mould and adapt and become something new, even a hunk of iron.
I had to hold faith.
I could change.
The plot isn't all about the sexual attraction in this story. That factor is definitely present, but there's more to it also. It's about true love, family, loss, endurance, soul and many other deep-rooted aspects of human life. It's a very intense read, especially for a mother, I feel. Every part of this story was so full, no down time. I would not want to trade places with any characters from Destroyed, but I was awed sharing in the stories of their lives.
I loved them all. Roan is now definitely in my top 10 book boyfriends. His greatness is immense.
