Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller Pepper Winters delivers another delicious dark romance.

"I'm not the hero in this story, girl. You'd do best to remember that."

Once upon a time, I was an 18-year-old psychology student.

Now, I'm a man's property.

Stolen and sold, I've been decorated in bruises since the day my world changed two years ago.

I suffer in silence, I crave freedom, but I never break.

I can't.

Until he arrives.

Elder Prest, the only man to look at me and see me. The only man more ruthless than my owner.

He wants me for reasons I don't understand.

He claims me for one night then leaves and never looks back.

Until he returns.

And life becomes much more complicated.

heartbreaking and tragic but so beautifully wrote

What did you like most about Pennies?

Pepper Winters is one of my top 5 favourite authors and this book just solidified her place there for life!

It is important to know that this is not a story where a slave falls for her captor. It has graphic scenes and violent content that may challenge some readers as it shows the captor as the Monster he truely is. This is not a warm and fuzzy story it's dark and damaging, heartbreaking and tragic but so beautifully written that it lures you in .


Kylie Stewart is an amazing narrator, I love the depth of the emotion she uses in her narration. Eric Rolan is a new narrator for me and took sometime to get used to his style but he portrays his character well and rhe more I listened to him the more I liked him.

The dual narration makes you feel so more more connected to the characters and it gives them a more realistic persona. The pairing of these two to their characters is perfect and their perfomance really enchaces the intencity of the story.

Female Narrator: 5/5
Male Narrator: 4/5
Narrators matched to characters: 5/5
Storyline: 5/5

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is a dark romance that will leave you desperate & aching for more. Pepper adds so much raw and gut wrentching emotion to her stories that you actually feel the tightness in your chest as your read her words,she breaths each page to life with her talented writing and creative mind.

Any additional comments?

Pimlico( Pim) has been kidnapped and sold into sex slavery, she has been abused physically and emotionally for two years by the man who brought her, Alrik (AKA -Master A) In the entire time she has been held captive she has been mute.Its her only form of defence and a brave and stubbon refusal to not let him have that part of herself. She has become so desperate for her freedom she would even consider death as her way out. Thats until she gains a new source of hope in the form of a man named Elder Preist an intense and mysterious business associate of Alrik.


Elder Preist is a self proclaimed theif and criminal so he is not exactly a knight in shining armour, but he might just be Pim's way out.The story ends on a cliffhanger that will have you frantically grabbing the second book in the series Dollars to get some answers.

Love the story! Disliked the male narration!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I wouldn't recommend this audiobook, as it does not enhance the reading/listening experience. Had this been my first read of this book, I may not have gone on to read the series.
This is the second time reading Pennies and the first time listening while I read. As an avid reader, I love to listen while I read. When the narrator is spot on, it brings the book to life.

Kylie did an extraordinary job as Pimlico, however, Eric's narration was poor. He read as if he was just simply READING, monotone, boring. There was no dramatization, no inflection, no emotion for the character of Elder. When changing his voice for Alrik, his voice took on some character. I actually turned down the volume on the male parts of the audio, so I could read it in my head, in my own voice. It really is a shame, Pepper Winters is an incredible author, and this audiobook could have been phenomenal had there been a different male narrator.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

This is not Eric's first audiobook. I actually looked up his work because I was so shocked that his voice was so boring, lacked inflection, emotion, drama. The character is fighting an internal battle, heated and demanding conversations with Alrik, dominating and compassionate conversations with Pim. You get no of that with his narration. Very disappointing. I'll read the next book but will not spend the money for the audio.

Heart-breaking

Thought-provoking. Heart-breaking. Profound. Gut-wrenching. Those were my initial thoughts. I know they don't all sound great, but this book is the perfect dark and gritty romance.

I've never read anything this dark and been this moved. Pepper Winters is a masterful writer. Although my heart pounded and broke for Pim, I loved everything about this book. In the face of pure horror, our heroine, remains strong. That was key for me. Add great writing to a great heroine with a stunning storyline and that leads to 5 Stars!!

Hard listen but AMAZING story

What made the experience of listening to Pennies the most enjoyable?

This was without a doubt one of the hardest listens I've ever done. The book delves so deep into the depravities of humanity and human trafficking....The story is so raw and real. There were moments I wanted to come out of my chair with anticipation. Elder's entrance into the story and the hope he her is what got me to to the end. I cannot wait to start the next book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pennies?

THE ENDING!!! I litterally felt like I was on the verge of a mini anxiety attack waiting to find out what happened to her.

Which character – as performed by Kylie C Stewart and Eric Rolon – was your favorite?

BOTH! I have listened now to several books by both of them and they are A-MAZING together. It's like the most perfect reading duet.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Penny for your thoughts....(I <3 Elder!)

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this...just go in knowitng there are some really raw/hard to read contents. If you can get through them...it's so worth it.

Penny for your thoughts

This story was hard and unrelenting on my soul. I’m all for a dark read and love PW stories, but this one had me shuddering from the first word. Gruesome doesn’t describe the torture. No reprieve. Just pain. My heart ached for Pimlico. I wanted to stop reading just so the pain would stop, but I couldn’t. I had to know if she would make it.
3 & 1/2 Stars
Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll continue the series because the words gouged out my eyes with their horror and strangled the air from my lungs.

Very dark and violent.

Dark and depressing

This was a hard book to listen too. I had a hard time getting through it. I’m sure it could be something that actually goes in in these days. The book sounds like it could have been written by someone who actually experienced exactly what girls have to go through with human trafficking.

If you enjoy hours of abuse then you may enjoy

I really enjoy this author but once I was over 2 hours into the book and the girl was still simply bring tortured and mentally abused I just couldn't go on. There needs to be glimmers of hope to keep the book interesting. This is not as good as Buttons and Lace.

I hate that I like this

This was a really dark novel and in no way a romance. However, it was compelling, emotional, and left me needing to know more.

Devastating

This was the hardest story I've read or listen so far. I considered to quit in the middle on several ocasions. But it is worthwhile to stick to the end.

tough to listen to but bloody good!

A great book!

Pennies by Pepper Winters is a great first book in the Dollars series. I had a love/hate relationship with Elder Prest but can't wait to find out more of his past secrets. I didn't like the way Kylie Stewart read the character of Pimlico. I switched between reading and audio and I felt she was a stronger character when I read than when I listened.
