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.

Ok, so let’s start of with how I felt after the prologue. My kindle note was “Oh, shit.” As in, “Whoa, what’s going to happen, I’m not putting this thing down until I know.” I was not disappointed.

We pick up where the novella stopped, Piper is on the verge of death and Declan stops it from happening … for a price. Now, not like you’re thinking, he loves this girl. I mean luuurves this chick.

“Piper was mine. all mine. No one could take her away from me. No one.”

The relationship between Declan and Piper is something spectacular to behold. They truly, wholly, and unconditionally love each other. And yet… Well, nothing is perfect. Hold on, that’s not true. Ms. Pepper’s story is perfect. I felt EVERYTHING. I related to both characters and sympathized with them on EVERY LEVEL. No, I’ve never killed, but I was RIGHT THERE with them. I was RIGHT THERE while Declan and Piper were separated and thoughts were forming based on not knowing what was going on.

“I already knew that he would hide many things for me, but he would never withhold his feelings for me.”

“You are fucking imperfect in the most imperfect way, Piper.”

Another thing that you get in this story is a plethora of characters that ALL MEAN SOMETHING to the story. and every character has depth, they aren’t simply window dressing.

It’s not often you are sucked into a story so completely, but there really is no way around it with Soulless. I loved these characters as if I were them. The merging of Ms. Pepper’s originality and stories that we have grown up with hit me hard. I loved this book. I LOVED the ending. You must read it. Must.



Sarah J. Pepper specializes in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit? Get a glimpse inside her head at http://www.sarahjpepper.com
