I owe him a debt.
A big one.
The payment can’t be settled with money or favors.
He only wants one thing.
Every action gets a reward. A button. Once I fill his jar with three hundred and sixty-five buttons, he’ll let me go.
He’ll let me walk away.
But I have to earn every single one.
By submitting to the darkest, cruelest, and most beautiful man I’ve ever known.
** TRIGGER WARNING ** There are some dark and disturbing scenes of abuse and punishment.
Ok, first of all I found this books in my library and they called my attention. At first I thought it was just one of those books with a lot of romance and sex on it. I wasn’t expecting what I had to endure reading this book.
what I like
This is my first time reading anything by Penelope Sky and I absolutely loved her writing style. She had a way with words andthe story drags you in from the beginning.
What I dislike
As much as I loved her writing style I absoluty hated the context of this book to the point that I found my self a few times while reading it debating on weather I would finish it or not. I know, I’m weird.
This book talks about sexual trafficking, slaving women, has a lot of talk of sexual abuse and violence. I could read a book with one horrible scene of a girl getting rape and not get as trigger as this whole book made me feel. The things that Pearl had to endure made me I’ll.
I can’t say it was horrible but I can say it wasn’t for me.
I give this book two out of five bookstacks 📚 📚
