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.
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.
Our Review 4 Blushes
The Girl and her Ren is a duet and is the second book. You must read The Boy and his Ribbon first. Pepper Winter’s writing is so often poetic in nature, that you can’t help but get lost in the near rhythmic beat. She writes this story so eloquently. The Girl and her Ren will pull on your heartstrings.
Ren has to face what had been done to him.
“I laughed before I could stop myself. Play? There was no play. I’d been beaten with a piece of lumber, had wall debris smashed over my head, and a hot brand driven into my skin.”
Della was also forced to deal with her past. She has to face what her parents did to her and to Ren.
Della and Ren are forced to face so many things in this story.
“Pressure wrapped around my lungs with black affliction, but then my heart drowned it out with Red affection.”
I was really shocked at the direction this story took. To be honest, It took a really long time to get to where it went and once it got there it was a heartbreaking journey.
I loved this book, but I also was annoyed with this book. For me, it’s pace was too slow. I would start to lose interest and I hate that, however, Pepper is such an amazing writer that I still love it.
“They said love had the power to make you become someone better than you were, but adversity and hardship revealed the truth about who you were at heart.”
I think the duet is one you should read. Be warned you will be in it for a very long haul, but its a journey, often a painful one, but a journey. It is one of the best duets I’ve read, again, however, I wish some scenes were toned down because I wanted to skim, and that wasn’t fair because then I could miss some of the beauty.

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.
“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.”
“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 analyzing every sentence I said to you, amazed that you never heard what I’d been shouting for longer than I could remember.”
