Blurb: “Elder is the most dangerous man I’ve met. Not because he can hurt me but because he has the power to steal my heart.”
Pimlico used silence as her ultimate shield. But then she was stolen by a thief who became her master and almost-friend. Life will never be innocent again, but perhaps the crimes Elder wants to teach her will keep her nightmares at bay.
Elder thought he could take what he wanted and sell Pim once he was through. However, that was before she did the impossible and stole his last thread of affection.
Now, they have a choice—give in to fate’s odd chemistry or forever remain strangers.
Pim wants Elder’s secrets. Elder wants Pim’s past. To earn such gifts, tasks must be completed, and Pim must do what Elder says—become like him, become a thief—only then will she have the money to buy her freedom.

This is the 3rd installment to the Dollar series and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this. Pepper Winters has sucked me into this world of debauchery and chaos and showed me that even people who have been through the worst can have moments of self discovery and maybe even happiness. This story was riveting and I found myself not being able to step away from these characters.
The struggle Pim goes through to find herself is raw and awakening. I connected with her on every level. Pepper made me feel her pain, her revulsion, but also her strength and determination to become seperate from the thing Alrik made her. I envied her, sympathized with her, and cheered for her in those moments where her strength won over her fear. Her connection to Elder is unique in its own way and completely raw.
“He’d [Elder] rescued me. He’d awakened me. He’d kissed me awake like Sleeping Beauty and removed the poinsoned apple from my soul like Snow White. He was my happily ever after. I just had to be brave enough, strong enough, and fearless enough to claim him.”
In this part of the series we see another side to Elder. When we first met him he seemed like this dominant have-it-my-way kind of man and he still in, but we see more of the war that goes on inside his head, not just because of Pim, but because of his condition and past experiences. Elder shows a vulnerability with Pim and for Pim that he usually keeps locked away and I fell even more in love with him because of it.
“My respect was the hardest thing to earn. My heart even harder. So why did I rip both from where they lived inside me and hold them out to her in bloody hands, desperate for her to take them?”
This installment was everything I wanted and needed from this story. We saw more of Elder and Pim in ways that I didn’t think possible. We see Pim as she becomes more than the shell of the woman Alrik turned her into and we’ve got to glimpse into Elder’s past and truly see what has shaped the man he is now. But Pepper also gives us sexual chemistry in the form of words and vulnerability. I loved every single word of this book…I was glued from page one.
