Title: Pennies
Author: Pepper Winters
Series: Dollar
Genre: dark romance

“At 18 I had pennies, but money didn’t make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didn’t dull the pain of being sold. At 20 I had hundreds, but then I met him and was found. At 21 I had thousands, but all I wanted was to be bound.”

“At 23 I had dollars, but life changed and made me rich. At 25 I had hundreds, but it wasn’t enough to stop my killing itch. At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.”

Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday. She had everything planned out. A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence.

Elder went from penniless to stinking rich with one twist of fate. His lifetime of crime and shadows of thievery are behind him but no matter the power he now wields, it’s not enough. He has an agenda to fulfill and he won’t stop until it’s complete.

But then they meet.

A beaten slave and a richly dressed thief. Money is what guided their separate fates. Money is what brought them together. And money is ultimately what destroys them.

She was poor. He was rich. Together…they were bankrupt.

EDA’S REVIEW


** 5++ “you’ll never be found” STARS **
“A penny for your thoughts, silent one. Perhaps, today you’ll speak.” 
description

 She was Tasmin once. A beautiful young girl. Successful. Brilliant. Loving. She had a life planned out for her. A good life. Perhaps a happy one. Then she was killed. She was only eighteen then. Now, at 20, she is Pimlico. A broken piece of glass. A girl with nothing. Not even a voice. She is still dead because breathing doesn't always mean you're still alive.
“Sometimes, it isn’t what’s spoken that is the loudest reply.” 
description

 She is used to being beaten up and broken by men. But HE is different. Elder Prest is a puzzle for Pimlico. An enigma. A man with so many secrets in his eyes. Anger and blackness. Cruelty, but also kindness. More importantly, he knows... He can hear her. She doesn't need words and sounds. He can understand her thoughts. He knows. How? How is that possible?
“I’d seen her once. Touched her once. Once would have to be enough. Because a man like me could never have a second chance. It was my most unbreakable law.” 
description

  Elder had been no one once. A penniless thief. Not anymore... That life is behind him now. He has power and a plan to conduct. He is merciless and heartless. Still the monster he once was. But then they meet. And now everything is in ruins. He is quickly becoming obsessed with her. She is quickly getting caught up in his calming authority. Once a thief, always a thief. He will get what he wants. He will steal the silent girl and make her talk.
“I’m not the hero in this story, Pimlico. I’m another villain. You’d do best to remember that.” 
description

OVERALL: For a dark romance obsessed freak like me, this book was HEAVEN. There's no doubt if you're looking for a little (or maybe a lot) twisted in your smut, Pepper Winters is the one to go to. I will be impatiently waiting in the shadows for more of Elder and his Mouse, and all the wretchedness they will come across along their journey. 100% recommended.

EXCERPT




Fuck this.

I stalked forward.

My hand came up.

The urge to soothe her catapulted my fingers to her cheek. My skin
erupted from her delicate heat. I’d already had my single touch when I’d
petted her hair. I wasn’t permitted a second.

But it didn’t stop me.

One second, she stood close, arching her chin at the door.

The next, she was across the cage, flying into a stack of boxes that tumbled in a clatter of butcher knives, butter knives, and sharp forks.

Her eyes turned luminous in the gloom, locking on mine with rage.

Shit.

I’d forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadn’t forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.

I didn’t look away. But I didn’t explain myself, either.

I’d borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that she’d leapt away meant I could report her to her master and have her punished.

Or you could punish her instead.

The distance between us grew thicker as we breathed fast.

I waited…wanting to know just how deep her education in pleasure flowed. Tearing her gaze from mine, she swallowed hard. Piece by piece, she hid her loathing, replacing it with reluctant acceptance.

Inching closer, her toes nudged aside sharp blades as she made her way to me and fell to her knees on the cold concrete.

Half of me jolted with insane lust. Most of me shied away with repulsion as her straggly hair covered her face but not before I saw the twisted disgust and echoing despair.

“Get up,” I murmured. Even though my voice was low, the cavern of the garage amplified it, layering it with bite.

Instantly, she swooped up. The crackle of her joints and misused cartilage in her bones sounded like tiny gunfire.

“Don’t kneel. Not in here.”
