"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.

Dollars is the second Volume in Pepper Winter's Dollar Series. It picks up where book one left, off so I would highly recommend starting from there. This book is stacked with emotion, rips at your heart strings and sets your mind on fire. The characters continue to grow as they move forward from their horrific past. It gives you a peek inside the minds of Elder and Pim. I could not get these characters out of my mind, long after I left the actual story. Though there are dark twists and turns woven throughout, Pepper Winters had an amazing ability to create and capture my heart as she shows how Elder helps Pim move forward. I loved this story so much, I immediately one-clicked book three. I can't wait to see what Pepper Winters has in store for me next. PS - Kylie C. Stewart and Eric Rolin do a phenomenal job of bringing Pepper's characters to life. Their performance enhanced the story and made me fall more for Elder and Pim with each and every word.

Watching as Elder tries to bring back everything she buried from her years of hell, while also fighting his own demons. I love how the story slowly unravels through the series allowing you to get to know every piece of the characters. It's cute at times, hard at others, and beautiful at some. Watching a person grow back into their new selves after being broken is a beautiful thing to read. This is an addicting story because you will want to know how each person grows and the secrets they keep.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. This just might be my shortest review to date because I do not want to spoil this book for anyone waiting to read it. I felt this book gave us a look into more of Elder and why he is the way he is. And the internal fighting Pimlico went through deciding if Elder was out to beat her or sell her. The pain both Pim and Elder go through almost jump off the pages and will make you feel all of it but you can't stop reading. Because you will have to know what happens next. Can these two help each other to survive and make a future together? I hope so but even if they go their separate ways, then they will help the other move on to live a better life without the other. I know that the story of Elder and Pim isn't over by a long shot, so I will wait impatiently to see what happens in Hundreds, book 3. Pepper Winters has done it again and the next book can't get her soon enough for me. **Wicked Reads Review Team**

Theme song: "Just One Yesterday" by Fall Out Boy Elder came back for Pim, but not for her--for him. Her silent strength seized his attention, drew him in without her consent, and overpowered their will for distance. But now that he has her, the entire game has changed. Pimlico belongs to him now, but he is not her sordid master. He is her rescuer, her care provider, her saint sheathed in shadows and secrecy, and a complete conundrum. To Elder, she is an antidote to his aloofness but the poison to it too. Regardless, her fortitude and brokenness seep into his veins, corrupting and confounding Elder. Trapped together at sea, there's nowhere to run or hide. For either of them. While Pennies presented the physical horrors of Pim's captivity in Crete, the second installment centers the repercussions of having lived in constant purgatory. In Dollars, we venture into Pimlico's long road to recovery and integration back into society. It lagged a little for me in certain parts, but that is probably because I prefer intense scenes. The ones that make you have to turn the page to see what happens next. This book is also sincerely dark. It is not an erotica, so if that is what you're looking for, I'll direct you to the Tears of Tess. Comparing the Monsters in the Dark series to Dollars, the former seems grayer in comparison. They both have intensity, a dump load of sexual tension, but split between committing to the physical act. Dollars nor Pennies get hot and heavy in the way MitD does; it is deeply character-based. It explores how two damaged people must steal each other's secrets while sorting through conflicting internal emotions and trying to cling to their sanity. All that said, Dollars is an amazingly written novel! Compact with description and depth while steadily evolving the characters, I loved the prose and structure of the book and the emerging romantic dynamic between Pim and Elder's complicated relationship. While I preferred the first novel over this one, Dollars introduces the goal of the following books while withholding enough to pique interest. It leaves off with a semi-cliffhanger, allowing the reader a satisfying ending if they choose to discontinue the series or a push to dive in with Hundreds.

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.

I'm on pins and needles for book 3!!! Pepper, you never fail to amaze. Charge me Hundreds for the next in the series and I'll gladly pay it, because you're worth it!
