“I'm done hurting her. She's been hurt enough. It's time I set her free...”

Once upon a time, I wished to go home and forget.
Now, I’m strong and ready to fight.
Seduced and claimed, Elder no longer just demands my voice, he commands me to be a thief like him. I refuse.
But he offers me things I shouldn’t want, favours I should run from.
In return for his protection, I’m ordered to steal enough pennies and dollars to buy back my freedom. Only, we both aren’t prepared for how he changes me, evolves me.
It’s my turn to learn about him.
It’s his wish to teach me how to be normal.
Until something goes wrong.
And our life together comes to an end.

Third Book in the USA Today Bestselling Romance, Dollar Series


I'm just gonna go ahead and say that the ending of Hundreds destroyed me. I'm used to cliffhangers when it comes to this author's books but this one... well, let's just say that I want the next book "Thousands" RIGHT NOW. I really hope we don't have to wait long for that book. 

Pimlico and Elder are my absolutely favorite couple of the moment, even though they break my heart over and over again. They may even be my second favorite couple out of all the books Pepper Winters has written. (Tess and Q coming first, of course). 

So yeah, this book was beyond amazing. And in one way it felt slightly different from the other two books because it delves way deeper into the characters and their personalities. Pimlico is slowly finding her way back thanks to Elder after everything that happened to her when Alrik was her master. Simultaneously we're also getting to know Elder on a more personal level. Which I absolutely loved. I'm so intrigued by him!

Hundreds felt pretty dark, even darker than the previous books as  I'm used to from this author. She never does shy away from really tough stuff but I feel it's even more noticable in this book for some reason. It's why I love her books so much. And the writing is also a part of it all. It's so damn beautiful, even poetic at times. I always devour each and every word.

Overall, this series gets better and better with each book. I know I said this about Dollars too but Hundreds was even better than the previous book. It was so freaking intense and some of the romantic scenes were scorching hot. Pepper Winters has amazed me yet again.

  2. After you didn't enjoy your last Pepper Winters novel as much as you wanted to, I am glad this one could be back to the level of great that you love! Even though it was a bit different as it was a bit darker than the others. It sounds like the ending is amazing!
