5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was not an easy read, not a sunny light hearted romance you casually read on the beach. This book made me cringe, made me hope for good things only to be dashed with more horrors. Give you an inch only to snatch it away. I loved it. 

I am one of those readers who love dark stories, the darker the better and Pennies was one of the darkest I've read. Brutal and heartbreaking for most of the book. But I went in knowing this was a series and I would get no happily every after, not in Pennies and probably not for a good while. 

Pim was such a warrior of her own sanity. Her life was taken away from her and she endures a life of nightmares. But through most of it she has this iron will, this lockbox in her heart that she keeps her soul, where no one can break her. She is smart and defiant. 

Elder (cool name) is so interesting. He is a bad guy in a world of bad guys, he has brutality and kindness. He intrigues me.

Beautifully brutal start to a very dark tale and I can't wait to see where Pepper Winters takes us.

“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.

Fuck this.

I stalked forward.

My hand came up.

The urge to soothe her catapulted my fingers to her cheek. My skin erupted from her delicate heat. I’d already had my single touch when I’d petted her hair. I wasn’t permitted a second.

But it didn’t stop me.

One second, she stood close, arching her chin at the door.

The next, she was across the cage, flying into a stack of boxes that tumbled in a clatter of butcher knives, butter knives, and sharp forks.

Her eyes turned luminous in the gloom, locking on mine with rage.


I’d forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadn’t forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.

I didn’t look away. But I didn’t explain myself, either.

I’d borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that she’d leapt away meant I could report her to her master and have her punished.

Or you could punish her instead.

The distance between us grew thicker as we breathed fast.

I waited…wanting to know just how deep her education in pleasure flowed. Tearing her gaze from mine, she swallowed hard. Piece by piece, she hid her loathing, replacing it with reluctant acceptance.

Inching closer, her toes nudged aside sharp blades as she made her way to me and fell to her knees on the cold concrete.

Half of me jolted with insane lust. Most of me shied away with repulsion as her straggly hair covered her face but not before I saw the twisted disgust and echoing despair.

“Get up,” I murmured. Even though my voice was low, the cavern of the garage amplified it, layering it with bite.

Instantly, she swooped up. The crackle of her joints and misused cartilage in her bones sounded like tiny gunfire.

“Don’t kneel. Not in here.”

1. Tell us a bit about yourself. I grew up in Nashville TN and now live in a small town on the outskirts. Met my husband Daniel on in 2004, married him in 2005, we celebrate 11 years of marriage this September. No kids or pets, only a LOT of Funko Pop dolls. I need an      intervention. 
2. What inspired you to write your first book? My husband. I had lost my job and was feeling very down about life in general. While talking to my husband on the phone, I told him about a TV show I’d been watching and how I would’ve written the plot differently. He suggested that I sit down and write a story of my own just to take my mind off things. That story turned into my first independently published novel. 
3. How did you come up with the title of For the Love of Gracie? It’s not really the greatest story. I had the character name and as I was writing I kept making mistakes and would say, “For the love of…” and change what was needed. Eventually I was like, “Ooh… For the love of Gracie!”  No joke…it’s really a terrible story on how I came up with that, lol. 
4. Describe your main character in five words. Compassionate, Strong-willed, Loyal, Feisty, Courageous 
5. Have you ever done anything strange or weird in the name of research? I’m not sure if it’s strange or weird, but I went to the gun range for the first time while writing For the Love of Gracie. The experience Gracie has at the range is the exact description of my first experience at the range. 
6. How long does it take you to write a book? On average, 6-8 months. 
7. What is your work schedule like when you're writing? Since I have a full-time job, I don’t get to write as much as I’d like to (I’d love to make it a full-time gig). Currently I write for about an hour and a half to two hours each night during the week and for two to four hours on the weekend. 
8. What book are you reading now? Straying Sadie by Felicia Tatum 
9. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Thank you for all your support and for loving my characters as much as I do! 
Random Questions:
1. What’s in your fridge right now? Leftovers from grilling out with family. 
2. What song do you sing at the top of your voice every time you hear it? Dancing Queen by ABBA. 
3. Other than writing, what special or unusual talent(s) do you have? I enjoy drawing and do a pretty decent job of it. I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger so I used to spend my time drawing as much as I write now. Also, I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue. 
4. Where did you last go on holiday? Knoxville TN for Fanboy Expo. It’s a three day comic-con. I got to meet one of my childhood idols-Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke of The Dukes of Hazzard). It was a nerd-tastic weekend which is my favorite kind. 
5. If feral aliens attacked your house and they were zapping your home with their Über super bombs, what five items would you save? Does my entire Pop Funko collection count as one item??? If I only get five, I’d say my wedding album, signed poster of The Chamber of Secrets, Autographed Princess Leia Funko, my Laptop, oh and I guess my husband!

New Release: No Second Chances by Marissa Farrar

Title: No Second Chances
Author: Marissa Farrar Genre: Contemporary Romance Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
When I was seventeen years old, I was told to stay away from Cole Devonport. Kids like him only ever meant trouble. I should have listened, but I didn’t, and surprise, surprise, I was the one who got hurt. But escaping Cole didn’t mean the end of my pain. Life has a way of screwing me over, and after joining the Army as a way of forgetting him, I suffered a loss I’ll never recover from.
So now here I am, back in the town I ran away from, with my alcoholic father apparently looking after me.
The last thing I need is Cole showing up on my doorstep because nothing has changed—with his prison tattoos and don’t-screw-with-me edge, Cole Devonport still means trouble...
I let everyone down all those years ago. I made mistakes and I’m not proud of them, but I’ve done my time and now I just want to keep my head down and get on with my life. I thought I was doing exactly that until I heard Gabriella Weston was back in town.
Despite what she thought, I was always in love with her. She might hate me, but whether she knows it or not, she also needs me.
I want to make it up to her, but with my past still trying to pull me down, perhaps it would be best if I just stayed the hell away like she keeps telling me to. Problem is, I can’t seem to resist her, and I’m the type of guy who always gets what he wants...
‘No Second Chances’ is a stand-alone, second chance, contemporary romance. It is a full length novel with no cliff-hanger!
