Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero, the better, and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex… her books have sex.
She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.
This is the second book in the Dollars series and this one packs one heck of an emotional punch!
While this book is definitely dark and covers some pretty difficult subject matter, there’s so much more to this as well. There’s everything from touching moments that brought tears to my eyes to moments of triumph that turned me into Pim’s own personal cheering squad. This girl’s been through more than most and I admire her fierce tenacity and refusal to give up that she possesses and find myself wanting nothing more than for her to finally find some peace and maybe even a little happiness in her life.
This story begins with the prior book titled Pennies and I cannot stress enough how important and essential it is to begin with that book before diving into this one since so much takes place in each book. This is a direct continuation of the first story and you’ll be lost if you start with this one.
I love how much more of Elder is revealed in this book and we are given a look at the man within the monster here. There are even a few parts where I found myself falling a little bit for him myself and I can honestly say that I’m now a huge Elder fan. There’s a few more books lined up to continue this series forward and I have already pre-ordered each and every one of them and will anxiously be waiting for every one of their releases.
I am a huge fan of this author and have loved every single thing I’ve read of hers and I can’t wait to see where she takes us next! I highly recommend reading this entire series to anyone and everyone, with the understanding that it covers some pretty dark subject matter of course and I look forward to so much more from this author in the future!
