“Love had been stolen from me for reasons entirely my fault. But then a miracle happened, and Pim gave me something I thought was lost forever. She gave me a love I’d earned. Love that ruined me. Love that made me hopelessly hers…”
Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal.
Now, I’m talking and trusting, and it’s all thanks to Elder.
He gave me my life back, and I gave him my heart, but love stories like ours are never simple.
I did something to protect him.
He did something to survive me.
We screwed up.
And now, it’s no longer just about us.
It’s about safety, sanctuary, and sin.
First of all I want to say that I had a little trouble getting into the story in the beginning. I did get hooked again once Pim and Elder were reunited again, which took less than 30% so it wasn’t that long. Still, the start wasn’t too great for me, which is why I bumped one star off the rating when all the other books have gotten 5 stars. Obviously I just want Pim and Elder to be together. And that’s it. Of course it’s never this simple with books by Pepper Winters.
In this book Pim and Elder were a little bit awkward towards each other. They were at the point where they weren’t sure how deep their feelings for one another went. It was clear for themselves, but they weren’t sure about the other. In the meanwhile they also dealt with the growing threat of the Chinmoku, who would surely find them. It would be only a matter of time.
There were a lot of amazing and swoony scenes. The sexual tension between Pim and Elder skyrocketed in this book. There was also the masked ball at Hawksridge Hall so I knew Jethro and Nila (from the Indebted series) would be showing up. I was really so thrilled to be reading about them again. I felt like Pepper Winters was giving her readers treats by doing that.
And then there was that ending that about killed me. I thought I had figured out how it would end. I was pretty sure the Chinmoku would show up and maybe take Pim from Elder. I don’t want to say if this does happen because I don’t want to spoil the story for those who haven’t read it yet but the end sure had a very unexpected twists. And let me just say… it wasn’t just Jethro and Nila making appearances in this book.
Thousands by Pepper Winters was a great addition to the Dollar series. The author’s beautiful writing never fails to amaze me. Also, she’s the queen of plot twists, which may or may not be a good thing depending on who you ask. But you can’t deny that she writes some thrilling endings. It made me even more excited to get my hands on the final book, Millions. I, for one will be counting the months, weeks and days for it.
