Overview

"I should never have asked for a night with you. This would never have happened if I'd had more willpower."

Once upon a time, I was a mute captive who wished for death.

Now, I’m stowed away on a yacht.

Saved and taken, the thief who stole me demands my voice, my past, my everything.

I won’t give in.

But Elder refuses to take no for an answer.

He pushes and cajoles, slowly discovering who I am. Until I find out he plays the cello to escape his demons, all while his music conjures mine.

He’s rich, I’m bankrupt.

I’m mute by choice, he’s curious by nature.

So many reasons why we can never work.

But that doesn’t stop our connection, our passion.

Until one night, he ruins everything.

I'm completely addicted to the mystery, intrigue and thoughtful nature of this story. Everything about the story, characters and writing is so intricate and eloquent. It’s so easy to get lost in the story and it’s pretty much impossible to speed read. I have to read slowly to process and savor all the deep thoughts and feels, sometimes re-reading a paragraph to fully comprehend the depth of the idea. I had so many involuntary epiphanies throughout the story. So much thoughtful brilliance. Dollars does not contain any of the graphic violence found in the first book, Pennies. Instead if focuses on Pim’s physical and mental healing and the developing bond between Elder and Pim. They seem to be caught up in some sort of strange dance of one step forward and then two steps back, trapped within the confines of an endless power struggle. Elder clearly has some deep and dark secrets, but all we get are whispered hints as to the truth of his dark past and what he truly wants with Pim. I'm completely dumbfounded as to what those secrets could be. This series is slowly ripping me apart with mysteries, emotion and a slow burn laced with equal parts hope and despair. I'm dying for the next installment!

3.75 stars--- DOLLARS is the second installment in Pepper Winters’ contemporary, adult DOLLAR dark, romance series focusing on Elder Prest, and Tasmin Blythe aka Pimlico. DOLLARS should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events of book one PENNIES. WARNING: DOLLARS is a dark romance with scenes of graphic and implied violence, rape, sexual abuse and torture. DOLLARS and the Dollar series may not suitable for everyone; there may be some triggers for more sensitive readers. SOME BACKGROUND: Two years earlier Tasmin Blythe was sold to a sadistic Norwegian businessman and in the ensuing time suffered abuse, rape and torture at the hands of Alrik Asbjorn (aka Master A) and several of his friends and associates. Refusing to give Alrik the satisfaction of her pain and turmoil, and in an effort to protect her mind our heroine shut down and opted for selective mutism. This is her continuing story. Told from dual first person points of view (Pim and Elder) DOLLARS is a story of healing and recovery. Elder Prest is a man determined to ‘own’ our story line heroine-body and soul- but first he must allow Pim the time to recover and heal. Tasmin Blythe aka Pimlico was sold into slavery two years earlier and has suffered unimaginable physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Elder Prest, a complicated and domineering man, is both her savior and her keeper, and the man who pushes Pimlico to fight the demons that control her mind. Elder’s need for revenge, and darkened past of secrets and betrayal control the lifestyle that has made him the man he is today, and it is that darkness that he focuses on the woman that calls to his heart. At times, his treatment and threats directed at our story line heroine were abusive and reviling- a bird in a gilded cage is still trapped behind wires and bars-our heroine traded one type of captor for another. Greed, revenge and an unknown future dictate the paths of our story line couple. The story is told through the thoughts and memories of a battered and broken woman, and the conflicted ramblings of a man desperate to fix what has been destroyed by deviance and evil. Elder Prest is no innocent; his list of sins is long and corrupt but something about Pimlico calls to his missing heart. But….I do have an issue with this particular story line and it has nothing to do with the story line content but more so with the lack of any definitive story line progress. DOLLARS is a story of recovery –mind, body and soul-but for all intents and purposes the focus remains on breaking down Elder’s cold-hearted facade, and the recovery of a woman who had lost the will to live-while very little else happened along the way. There were a couple of hints as to Elder’s past, as well as Elder’s association with the people who had stolen Tasmin’s life but nothing has yet to come to fruition. The slow build up and absence of any real development is both frustrating and disheartening. DOLLARS, and the Dollar series is gritty, raw and emotional. The complexities of a broken mind are slow to heal; steps must be taken to ensure a recovery that is not destroyed by pushing the boundaries too soon or too fast. The premise is unique and creative; the characters are tragic and passionate; the romance fated and angry.
