Thousands by Pepper Winters

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

There is no GREATER HIGH than when I sink myself into a Pepper Winters story. Half of her words penetrate me like a knife, cutting into me deeply, twisting and turning around my heart, where I plummet through the dark. OH DO I LOVE THAT FALL! The other half shines through me like the sun, soaking me in warmth and light, where I feel as if I’m floating on air, everything so right. It’s this whirlwind of light mixed with dark that draws me into Pepper Winters’ creations, stories that strip me bare as they bare everything to me.

Here I sit days after reading, still STUNNED SPEECHLESS, still so very MOVED by Thousands, Pepper Winters’ latest story in the Dollar series. Thousands sank into my soul—my emotions on edge—as its pendulum-like push and pull SPELLBOUND ME. Words opened the floodgate of feels: POIGNANT … PASSIONATE … POWERFUL. These words penetrated me like rain and I wanted to feel every last drop.

Two hearts are broken, longing to be whole.
Two souls are dead apart but alive together.
Elder and Pim, fate finds them together again. 

Now I understood the message. I was dead without her. I was alive with her.

Dark-haired, dark-eyed, and inked Elder is gorgeous. Hero and hunter. Angel and devil. Saint and sinner. PURE PERFECTION. Burned by a painful past with wounds that still resonate deeply, this beautiful man seeks salvation. I NEEDED HIM TO BE SAVED TOO. I LOVE ELDER, MY DARK HERO, SO MUCH!!! 

I was nothing. I was no one.

My HEART BLED for Elder, this beautiful and broken man! Elder doesn’t want to love Pim when he can’t love himself, but the fuel of fate is too lethal to escape.

“You’ve emotionally crippled me, Pim. You’ve reached inside and wrapped around everything vital keeping me alive.”

These words PENETRATED ME. These words gripped my heart. These words soared straight to my soul.

Beautiful Pimlico ‘Pim’ has survived hell, battling the most evil of monsters. She is gaining strength, fighting back to reclaim part of who she was before her life ended. I LOVED this STRONG HEROINE, a WOMAN WARRIOR!!! From meek little mouse to roaring lion, it’s Pim’s turn to roar. I admired her courage and tenacity so much! She is sweetness and strength, a survivor.

Pim seeks to be the light in Elder’s dark world, the spark to his soul. THOUSANDS was a SPARK to my SOUL.

I no longer lived for me. I lived for him.
She wasn’t alive because of me. I was living because of her.

Elder and Pim’s chemistry is UNDENIABLE. One look is all it takes for their electricity to detonate. I felt it through the pages, this combustible chemistry that MELTED ME. 

I launched myself at her. She didn’t run. She was weightless as I crushed her to me. She was eager as my mouth slammed on hers and every last thought exploded into nothingness.


The kiss speaks what words can’t. A kiss that is a fusion of soulmates. A kiss that is EVERYTHING. 

“All things worth having are terrifying.”

“Then you must be the greatest thing on earth, Pimlico, because you f**king petrify me.”

These words are PURE POWER.
Power to break.
Power to bind.
Power to feel each one.

Oh did I FEEL!!! I FELT these words vibrate through me, GRIPPING and GUTTING ME, as they cast a spell on my soul that spun, soared, and shattered for Thousands The persistent push and pull…the fire and ice…the secrets and lies…SO INTENSE, so much that I FELT THIS STORY along with Pim and Elder. I FELT every heartbreak, every hope, every bit of happiness, and every bit of bleeding angst from these real-to-me characters. I FELT EVERYTHING!!!

That END?!? IT SHOCKED and SHATTERED ME!!! When you think you can’t wade into the pits of hell any deeper, Pepper Winters takes you there, thrusting you into despair where you can only pray for survival from the massacre on your heart and soul. A MASTERMIND of monster-mixed-with-hero stories, so FLAWLESSLY fused with dark and light, there is no better dark romance author than Pepper Winters. NO ONE. This Queen of Darkness is IT for ME!!! Thousands is a TOP 2017 book, a MUST-READ romance!!!

HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL and PASSIONATELY POIGNANT, Thousands hits the heart and slays the soul. From the moment I began Thousands, this soul-searing story both bared itself to me and STRIPPED ME BARE, stealing every smile and tear, entangling itself around every emotion. I knew this book would break me, and that it did. This book BROKE ME in the BEST WAY!!! I WAS RUINED!!! But oh was I IN LOVE!!! So much love!

I lived Thousands. I breathed Thousands. I was bound to Thousands. I became Thousands, a story worth billions in gold. THOUSANDS OWNED EVERY PART OF ME. I am still BREATHLESS, my heart beating for Thousands. Thousands thrust itself into my heart, both throbbing as one, and never let go. I still can’t let go. 

This was pure love, and I sank to the bottom of it and didn’t care if I drowned.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heartbreakingly beautiful ‘but worth 1000s ‘stars

“Love had been stolen from me for reasons entirely my fault. But then a miracle happened, and Pim gave me something I thought was lost forever. She gave me a love I’d earned. Love that ruined me. Love that made me hopelessly hers…”

Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal.

Now, I’m talking and trusting, and it’s all thanks to Elder.

He gave me my life back, and I gave him my heart, but love stories like ours are never simple.

I did something to protect him.

He did something to survive me.

We screwed up.

And now, it’s no longer just about us.

It’s about safety, sanctuary, and sin.
