Review: Pennies (Dollar #1) by Pepper Winters

“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.
I can’t.
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.

MY REVIEW

Pennies by Pepper Winters
Pimlico, Elder, and Master A
HOLY. FUCKING. HELL.
5 DARK FUCKING STARS

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.

Pepper Winters is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today International Bestseller. She loves romance, star-crossed lovers, and the forbidden taboo. She strives to write a story that makes the reader crave what they shouldn’t, and delivers tales with complex plots and unforgettable characters.

After chasing her dreams to become a full-time writer, Pepper has earned recognition with awards for best Dark Romance, best BDSM Series, and best Hero. She’s an #1 iBooks bestseller, along with #1 in Erotic Romance, Romantic Suspense, Contemporary, and Erotica Thriller. She’s also honoured to wear the IndieReader Badge for being a Top 10 Indie Bestseller.

After releasing two books with Grand Central, Hachette (Ruin & Rule and Sin & Suffer) Pepper is a Hybrid Author of both Traditional and Self-published work.

Represented by Trident Media, her books have garnered foreign interest and are currently being translated into numerous languages, including already released titles in Italian and Turkish. Audio Books for her entire back-list will be available in 2016.

deb•o•nair

adjective \ˌde-bə-ˈner\

of a man : dressing and acting in a stylish and sophisticated way : urbane, attractive, charming and confident

Debonair and sexy-as-sin Tyler Sinclair has fought his way from poverty to the top as a Wall Street stockbroker. Hungry for success, ambitious for power and glory, he doesn’t have time for messy emotions like love. When his colleague is called away on business, Tyler is stuck with an intern he never wanted and doesn’t have time for. Three weeks of torture await him.

Raised by a single mother, Brooklyn Bennett is an Australian girl who works and studies hard to achieve her dreams. She scores an internship with a prestigious firm in New York for six months. Focused on her career, she can’t afford to lose sight of her goals. Love is not on her agenda.

From the moment Tyler lays eyes on the girl with the golden hair, strange accent and sassy attitude, something about her intrigues him. Can he teach her all she needs to learn without losing his heart? Can he make her yield to him not only in the boardroom but also in the bedroom? Will a few nights of passion change the way they both feel about love . . . or is it just about sex, money and desire?

Some things won’t stay buried…

Drake Jefferson has been missing for years.

Wanted by the very people who hired him, he left behind his job, his life, and his love to pursue a career of the criminal variety

Caitlin Saunders, Drake’s ex-wife and one of the AFP’s best analysts, is doing her best to move on after losing the love of her life. Originally a part of the team that managed Drake’s operation, she gave up her field role the day she realized he’d turned. And she hasn’t trusted a soul since.

One phone call in the middle of the night will force her back to active duty – a suspect in an ongoing case has been captured and they insist they have information on Drake – they just aren’t willing to talk to anyone but her.

That information will change everything she believed to be true and send her down a path that could land her in the exact position Drake ended up in.

It will take every skill set she has, just to keep her head above water as she learns that right and wrong don’t always follow the rules, and that when you’re fighting for love – there are no rules.

I belong to no one.

It’s the way I’ve chosen to live. Master of my own destiny, finding my way through this bullshit thing called life.

I learned from a young age how to get my way. Being a woman isn’t a weakness. It’s the opposite. I’ve spent my life being surrounded by four overbearing brothers, but I’ve never been a wallflower. Independent and unwilling to be tied down, I grabbed life by the balls and lived it to the fullest.

I was enjoying myself, minding my own business at my brothers wedding. Then WHAM.

Ever have a man walk into your life and alter your entire universe? My answer would’ve been no before he tempted me into his bed.

I’m talking about the big damn bang.

Everything that I thought was right, suddenly spins on its axis and bitch slaps me in the face.

No words of love, no whispered promises, just sex and drugs and rock and roll. No one gets a piece of Reed but what they will get is the night of their life, the chance to let go, break their own rules and the best, the dirtiest, filthiest sex ever… Along with the other four people in my bed.
