An Elegant Weapon by Candace Blevins
Life becomes hell when The Abbott gives Holly to the sadistic Bran, but she survives because there's no other option.
This story picks up on Holly's part of the story in LEASHED. It's recommended you read these two books together.

AN ELEGANT WEAPON was absolutely amazing and not at all what I was expecting. If you’ve read LEASHED already or are considering buying it, then grab this one too, you so won’t be disappointed. I absolutely loved how Holly was sorted and the steps it took to get her there. One of the things I really love about Candace Blevins stories are the attention to details. There’s so much going on and then, she’ll throw in a detail and suddenly, I can picture everything she’s describing. One example (and it doesn’t give away spoilers) is: “Oddly, the pain was a balancing point — like salty caramel, or citrus chocolate.” Much like an addiction, Ms. Blevins stories will leave you craving more.
Everyone responds to different stimuli. Holly is a junkie who didn’t respond well to Abbott and Spencer’s kindness perhaps Bran can give her what she needs. Bran tears her down and rebuilds her into the woman he knows she can be. The process is often painful and degrading but so is the life of a junkie. Bran makes her want more. If you want pretty this book isn’t for you if you want gritty then this fits the bill. This author takes me places I’ve never been before and gives me things to ponder.
