“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.”

"You're worth pennies. But I'll make you worth fucking millions". 

You know without a doubt that if you open up a book and there's a warning, not just any warning, I'm talking an entire freakin page: You're in for some deep sh*t. So what did I do? I went ahead and read the warning and about halfway through the story, I wanted to smack myself for not listening to it. There are some books that pushes the limit and takes you out of your comfort zone and there are some that down right makes you cringe and question your own morals. But do you stop reading? HELL.NO.

At Eighteen years old, Tasmin had the perfect life. Her mother was well off with having money, she loved going to school and was looking forward to pursuing a career as a psychologist. But on one fateful night, her life as knows it was over. Kidnapped and sold as a sex slave, Tasmin is now known as Pimlico by her Master. Evil was now a part of her future instead of going to school and torture became a normal thing for her. But there is someone else that she needs to be worried about and he's not someone you want to mess with.

"I wasn't a nice man. I was tormentor. A killer. A thief. And I wanted to steal her courage drop by fucking drop".. 

Elder Prest didn't have a lot when he was growing up but when he reached his twenties, he became a millionaire. Now he has it all. An Empire, Money, Power, Respect, and earth shattering fear from anyone that crosses his path. But how did he get there? How many secrets and bodies did he have to rack up to be one of the most feared bussinessman around? While settling a deal, he meets Pimlico and is drawn to her. But does he want to save her from her own personal hell or add more fire to her demise? 
I'm going to be honest and say that this story is NOT for everyone. There were moments where I cringed at certain scenes and held my stomach and I couldn't believe how evil some people could be. With that being said, this story defenitely kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. Ms.Winters takes you to the edge but leaves you with just a flicker of hope. I loved how she makes you fall in love with someone but at the same time question everything about that person! Are there two bad guys or one?

My only problem was that I would've liked to see more action but knowing that this is the first one in a five part series, I understood why it was done this way. So to all my dark reader fans, this is the book for you but just know that you've been warned.
