“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.

“A penny for your thoughts, silent one.”

● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Tasmin is an eighteen-year-old girl with her whole future ahead of her. She has a mother that has money, although she may not be very loving but supports her in her career choice. Tasmin’s life is a pretty happy one. That all changes when she is killed. She is choked to death and brought back to life and forced into a new identity.

“You’re worth pennies, but I’ll make you worth fucking millions. However, what I expect in return will be unpayable.”

Pimlico is now 20 years old. She was stolen and sold as a slave to a horrible evil man. All Pimlico knows now is constant pain and abuse at the hand of her Master. Pimlico’s life has become complete torture, yet, she has remained strong through her silence. All Pimlico has in her life that makes her feels less alone are her secret journals to no one. Master A is determined to make her speak, and staying strong is proving to become tiresome for her. She’s near the end of her rope when things take a turn for Pimlico when Elder Prest steps into her prison.

Elder Prest is quite the mysterious and powerful man. He seems to have many secrets and some demons of his own. He may appear to be cut from the same cloth as Master A, but there is something about him that is different. Pimlico is confused by him, but also wants to be near him. He is the only man that has shown her another form of treatment that didn’t include pain. Elder Prest is just as intrigued by her as she is by him. He slowly becomes obsessed with her and wants her for himself.

‘I wasn’t a nice man.
I was a tormentor. A killer. A thief.
And I wanted to steal her courage drop by fucking drop.’

This book was so crazy. There was a warning in the beginning of this book, but I was like, “Yeah, yeah, I got it. I’ve read Pepper Winter’s other books, so I should be fine.” I was so wrong. This one made me cringe so hard at all the horrible dark things that occurred. My emotions were all over the place. My heart hurt so deeply for Pimlico. I just wanted her to finally escape from the horrible nightmare she lived daily. I wanted Elder to help her. I wanted Master A to pay for everything he ever did to Pimlico. I was biting my nails the whole time waiting to see what would happen next. Of course, it ended with a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I loved Elder Prest, so I can’t wait to find out more about him and seeing how these two characters grow and change. I really recommend this one, especially if you are a fan of dark reads.
