***PDL’s Rating: 6 Stars (like WHOA)***
Seriously how can a book from the first page be ri-DICK-ulously awesome to just keeps getting better and better by the page?????!!!
Okay, let’s be clear on one thing. If you are looking for a light read, HEA, prince charming or your knight-in-shining-armor coming to your rescue kind of book. THIS is NOT that book! Pepper Winters took dark romance to the next level. I kept thinking to myself, wait where the fuck is the romance (80% in)… all I got so far is the dark and that did not even occur to me or matter because I was disgustingly engrossed in this story. I totally climbed into this book. I feared, remained strong, loathed, lost faith, and became hopeful as much as these characters did. I could have easily been passed as one of the characters because that’s how much I felt. Flabbergasted, I am.
MAN OH MAN, you all know how I LOVE my Hades Hangmen series but I have to say… after reading PENNIE$ (book #1 of the Dollar series); this just sky-rocketed right up next to my Hades Hangmen. I think I am developing a pattern here. Seems I am most emotionally invested when I am tortured – go figure! Truth is, this book was extremely well written and the story sucks you in from start to finish. You know how when you watch a movie and think to yourself “well fuck, that asshole or sweet ass can act his/her ass off… got me thinking shit is real!” Well, PENNIE$ brings forth all the same feels in you, if not more!
I think I am going… NO, I know I will be obsessed over this series the way I am with Hades Hangmen. My life is officially ruined once again, in a way that I will keep crawling back for more. If you love your characters as complex as I do, these characters will shred your soul. My stomach was in knots and I was possibly cringing throughout. Guess I am more of a pussy than I thought, but SHIT! It’s the most disturbing, sadistic, nauseating read I have ever read and I troublingly relish every single word of it and am dying for more. Makes me kind of a sick fuck, huh?
Tasmin (Pimlico) in this book is my fucking heroine. The way she puts up a fight and stand by what she believes in is astonishingly unreal. I have nothing but love and the utmost respect for her character.
Elder Prest, I haven’t read a book with a character this fucked up in the head ever, and damn I already know when the time comes and more is revealed of his character I am going to fall flat on my face for him.
This book is fucking twisted and I am not sure what that says about me since I cannot get enough of it and want more of this monstrous-fuckery, in a very bad way. Book #1 did not end with a cliff-hanger. It wrapped up perfectly. It also swallowed up your entire existence that you will find yourself clawing your way to book #2, let’s just hope we all make it out alive.
I fucking bow down to you Pepper Winters!
