REVIEW: The Girl & Her Ren by Pepper Winters

Mel's thoughts...

There are books that you read and you enjoy and then there are books that leave you speechless. It started with The Boy & His Ribbon, Pepper Winters captivated me with Ren and Della’s story. I immediately knew with Book 1 that this series would land on my fav reads list. What I didn’t expect was how much I would feel, overcome with emotions The Girl & Her Ren is bittersweet and beautiful. It tells a tale of just what love is truly meant to be and everything that comes along with it. Devotion, hurt, comfort, trials, happiness and all the other things that come with life. It makes you take a step back and look at your own life. This book will stay with me for the rest of my life. I was overcome with emotions. The way this story is told is flawless, it really is story telling at its finest. For me it was a story and it characters that came to someone’s mind. I honestly believed that these characters were talking to me the story just that powerful. I was reading this and feeling both Ren and Della as they told me about their life together and it captivated my heart in a way that very few books do. This is easily my fav read of 2018. It’s raw and intense and emotional and will leave an impact.

The Girl and Her Ren by Pepper Winters The Ribbon Duet Book 2 Publication Date: June 5th, 2018 Genre: Coming of Age Romance


“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?

I’ll tell you what you do.

You hope.”


Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.

To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.

Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.

But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.


I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.

I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.

I tried to move on without him.

But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.

Until something happened.

Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.

And nothing was the same after that.

The fallen papers crunched beneath my boot as I shifted my weight, leaning into her, seeking an answer. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

She flinched, her eyes closing beneath an avalanche of pain.

This hurt.

Everything hurt.

“Della…please.” My calloused thumbs caressed her silky-soft skin, catching on her young perfection with my older imperfection.

Ten years separated us.

Ten years was an eternity when she was a babe and I was a boy, but now…it no longer held such power. I refused to let it because I didn’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t touch her the way I was touching her now.

She laughed quietly, full of torture and tragedy. “I did tell you. In a roundabout way.”

“You didn’t.”

“But I did.” She dared meet my eyes. “I never understood how I could touch you, hug you, kiss you, and you never knew. I didn’t know how I could hide my jealousy when you were with Cassie or later with your one-night stands. I lay awake at night analysing every sentence I said to you, amazed that you never heard what I’d been shouting for longer than I could remember.”
