BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Pennie$ by Pepper Winters

“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.”
Meet Elder in PENNIES,
Pepper Winters’ newest Dark Romance Series!

Google Play:

“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 fulfil 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.

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.
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.”

Sonja's Review

Oh, I just finished Pennie$ and now all I want to do is cry because it's over and I have to wait until September to find out what's going to happen next! OOOoooOOOhhh, it just stinks! GARGH! UUUgggHHH! 

Okay, I've got all the crying, whining, and moaning out of my system now... mostly... I still want to cry, but I won't. I'll just start my review the way I was planning to before the ending got in my way. 

Pennie$ is the first Pepper Winters' book that I've read - although I've been meaning to read her for a long tim, in fact, I think she was probably one of the first indie authors that I found back when I didn't even know what an indie author was. You're probably wondering why I waited so long before I picked up one of her books and at first, it was because I wanted to wait until her series were completed, but mostly it was a lack of time. So, you can imagine that when she started a new series and I finally had the time, I totally pounced on reading Pennie$ and I'm so glad that I did because it was incredible! It might have been a long wait for me, but it was completely worth it and I'm excited for the time when I get to read her again.

I'm debating on whether or not I should tell you about Pim and Elder and/or what I should say about them. They're not your usual kind of hero and heroine - not that you deal with the usual kind when it's a dark book, but I guess I should say, to me, they weren't normal even for dark characters. It was definitely not a bad thing though, just different. 

My heart ached for Pimlico and I hated what happened to her and you know what? Hate isn't even a strong enough word, I loathed everything she had to endure and I couldn't help but admire and respect her unbelievable strength and resolve. It's not easy being inside her head, seeing what goes on, and feeling all her emotions, but I don't regret any of it and I'm eager to see who she will become in the upcoming books.

Elder - sometimes I loved him and sometimes I hated him. He made me want to shake him and to scream and yell at him to do something. He was frustrating but also intriguing - I wanted to know about his past, what made him tick, and I waited on pins and needles for whatever he would do next. I'm still not completely happy with Elder Prest, but d*mn if I don't want to see him again! 

Pennie$ sucked me in, captivated me, and I devoured it. There were times when I absolutely could not tear myself away and whenever I did have to, I would do whatever I had to fast and hurry back to it. It had my emotions all over the place: it broke my heart, infuriated me, scared me, and it made me feel both hope and hopeless. Pennie$ is a phenomenal, heart racing, heart pounding journey that will leave you breathless and on the edge of you seat.

Pennie$ is the first book in the Dollars series, it's told from Elder and Pim's POV, and if you couldn't tell from before, it ends in a cliffhanger that will make you crazy.
