"I'm not the hero in this story, girl. You'd do best to remember that."
Once upon a time, I was an eighteen year old psychology student.
Now, I’m a man’s property.
Stolen and sold, I’ve been decorated in bruises since the day my world changed two years ago.
I suffer in silence, I crave freedom, but I never break.
Until he arrives.
Elder Prest, the only man to look at me and see me. The only man more ruthless than my owner.
He wants me for reasons I don’t understand.
He claims me for one night then leaves and never looks back.
Until he returns.
And life becomes much more complicated.
Pennies is book 1 in the USA Today Bestselling Romance, DOLLAR SERIES
Another awesome book!!!!!
She warned us. The book came with a very clear warning. Enter the darkness of Pennie$ only if you dare. I dared and holy sh*t!
Pennie$ was inky black, delving back into the evil world of human trafficking as experienced by young Pimlico. The abuse hinted at in The Monsters in the Dark series was laid out in a full emotional way in Pennie$. Pim was debased, dehumanized, raped, demoralized and treated no better than a disposable toy for a sick master. The actions of her owner made me want to step into the story, rescue her and serve up a cold plate of justice on a scrum-bag of a man. And through it all she was surprising strong until she reached a point where she couldn't take any more. Where death (a second time) was the only way to be free.
Then enter Pepper's newest lead male character, Elder Prest. I heard he was Q and Jethro wrapped up together and I would love him more than them. I don't know if any character will ever take the place of Q for me, but I was highly intrigued by Elder. He was a thief, full of darkness, but bound by strict training from his previous life. He had boundaries, rules to keep himself under control and the darkness at bay. He was drawn to Pim and fought the pull toward her, knowing he was just as evil as her master. But would he save her or just throw her into more of a nightmare? You need to read the book to find out!
Not all was revealed in Pennie$ since it was the first of a new series. In typical Pepper fashion, clues and hints were casually dropped and tiny bits of information were glossed over. Veteran readers of her books will catch them, hi-light and wait for more details in the rest of the series. I know I hi-lighted more than usual! Those bread crumbs will keep me guessing and looking for answers in the future books.
I expected a cliffhanger at the end. It kind of was one, but not like the cliffy endings in the Indebted series. I didn't throw my iPad and curse Pepper's name in vain. But she hooked me into the story so much that I couldn't put it down and will devour the next book, Dollar$, the minute I get it. I need to know what happens next!!!!
Was it darker than her previous books? No, not in my opinion. It was on the same level. However, she left a lot to the imagination. Yes, there were several graphic, ugly scenes, but she also made the reader imagine the abuse through Pim's writings where she simply couldn't voice the atrocities done to her. (Maybe my own mind is just as dark as Pepper's so I wasn't shocked by the story!)
Bravo Pepper on another instant hit!!! You made me feel Pimlico's horrors. You have my undivided attention with Elder Prest. I NEED Dollar$ NOW!!!
(An ARC was kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.)
Pennies was dark, twisted and disturbing, but I was so enthralled that I couldn't put it down. I have been left speechless trying to absorb everything. This is one of the darkest and most painful books I have ever read, but I want more! The strength that comes from the main character, Pim, is unbelievable. My heart absolutely broke for her. I am on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what will happen next in Dollars!
You can Call Me Elder
Way darker than Monsters in the dark and its only the first book. So if you dont like Dark DO NOT READ skip this book there is a warning so really it should be no surprise. Now if you read her book Monsters in the Dark Its nothing like that either lol This one has a twist so I can see how people keep trying to compare if it is. Its Not and yes you will either love or hate. I love it The DARKER the better. I love these two characters I think Pim is a force to be reckoned. This girl is standing her ground. Shes No One and shes lost. I love her notes of tissue I think without that little release she might of been broken all the way. She might have been Stolen, Sold and bought. Her Voice is all she has left and her last words where yrs ago she still refuses to give that up. Alrik is pure Evil I thought he might be the dark hero So very wrong not like Q in pain and pleasure. Nope Alrik is straight up a Sick man with Sick Tendencies. Who bought Tasmin and has her go by Pimlico the place she was taken from. Elder and Alrik old friends from the streets. Both now Rich and trying to stay on top. Elder has something Alrik wants and Vice Versa. Elder is still a mystery and I cant wait to find out more about him. He has a dirty mouth and isnt a golden boy either. Whos more powerful Alrik, Elder or Pim ..
