“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.
I just released the breath I’ve been holding since I opened this book…. This is my introduction into the fucked up world of Pepper Winters. Yep, this is how I popped my Pepper cherry and I’m telling you… I’m reeling from this… I could not (for the life of me) put this dark and dank book down!
Pimlico (Tasmin) is such a resilient young woman. I don’t think I’d have half the courage she had for so long. Think of the unimaginable as far as what you think you can endure and then triple it! This woman defies the odds and keeps her chin up. Well, when Master A would allow it! Broken bones and bruises where the norm on the outside, but her spirit and tenacity kept her from sinking into the abyss. I love her in every way, shape, and form.
Master A is a complete and utter fuckstick! He’s the epitome of evil. He hurts without regard, he takes without concern, and he walks around like it’s all ok to be such a dick. I can’t even begin to describe the evil that he is. The devil could learn a few tricks from this prick! He can take his white house, white clothes, and white life and shove it up his Lillie white ass!
Elder… oh God, Elder… I think I love him. He’s dark, mysterious, and all alpha. He makes me want to see the good in people. He’s done things he’s not proud of and I’m sure he’ll do more, but where Pim is concerned, his heart is slowly breaking through its rigid shell. I’m not sure where his intentions will bring him and Pim at the moment, but I’m hopeful it’ll be a place of respect, adoration, and hope.
This story is uber dark… you need to heed the authors warning at the beginning of the book… It has many triggers and will probably go down as one of the top ten darkest books I’ve ever read. It’s gripping, it’s persuasive, and it’s tragic. The characters are powerful and the storyline profound. I’m not completely sure how many books are in this series, but this one is not a standalone. I’m gonna dive into the next one soon.
