The Boy & His Ribbon by Pepper Winters
The Ribbon Duet Book 1
Publication Date: April 3rd, 2018
Genre: Coming of Age Romance
“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret?
I’ll tell you what you do.
Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.
His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.
But then…he ran.
He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.
I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything.
My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it.
At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.
For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.
But by the end…he loved me.
The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.
And slowly, my secret drove us apart.
I just read one of the most soul clenching, heart-rending, and utterly hopeful love stories. And yet, I am a sobbing mess of despair. You see, the Boy & his Ribbon, isn't a traditional love story. It's a story filled with love, hope, and devotion. It's an idealistic dream in a reality far too dismal to imagine.
A love and bond created in hardship. A love developing over time. A family. the Boy & his Ribbon.
I still hurt all over from this book. It's impossible to finish this story without a heart rending ache. It's impossible not to echo Della's feelings. It's not probable that you can read this story and be satisfied with the end because it is truly a beginning. But we don't know to what, and honestly, that tears my heart up wondering. I'm afraid of what will become of my friends. I'm afraid of the rift. But most of all, I'm terrified I won't get my fantasy Disney dream. You see this melancholy story is the perfect set up for an amazing fairytale...
But life isn't fairytales. Pepper Winters is a genius at shredding my heart. She has never let me down and so I will struggle with my need. I will clutch my chest hoping for quick relief. But we both know, that nothing Pepper writes comes without sacrifice. I know it will hurt but when it comes to books....I am masochist begging to be hurt more. Clawing for the pain, I will always, ALWAYS, ask, plead, beg, chant, and pant for more.
In the end, you will be just as needy. Don't say you weren't warned!

I still remember reading this authors first book and how I felt and in my opinion Pepper’s writing just gets better with each new story. This is not only her best book to date but my top read of the year.
I’m not sure I can express how I felt whilst reading I just know I felt EVERYTHING. My heart my mind my emotions were all fighting one another. This is a story unlike anything I’ve ever read, it’s heartbreaking, it’s happy and sad.
The relationship between Ren and Della is so special, the bond they forge through the years and the struggles they face was .... I just can’t find the words. They are under my skin and I never want them to leave.
I would give anything and I mean anything to get my hands on book two. Bravo Pepper ❤️
