Button & Lace by Penelope Sky


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.

My Thought

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 πŸ“š πŸ“š

    1. That’s why I didn’t said it was bad. It wasn’t I just couldn’t handle it my self. But besides that the story was interesting. I think that’s why I was having so much issue stopping it


  1. Great honest review, I know books that deal with sex trafficking is a really hard book to read, I read a book like this one before and I was very emotional reading it. But the book was also an eye opener for me about sex traffiicking as well. I’m really sorry this book didn’t work out for you, I hope your next read is a much better one. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
