I’m going to heat it up a bit this month with the first book from Penelope Sky’s 6 book series:
Synopsis: I owe him a debt. A big one. The payment can’t be settled with money or favors. He only wants one thing. Me. 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 **
Dark and possibly disturbing scenes of abuse and punishment.
I’ve never ready anything by Penelope Sky, but this series receives pretty high ratings on both Amazon and Goodreads.
I’ll post my thoughts and open it up for discussion at the end of February, so if you have read it, or plan on reading it along with me this month, stay tuned for the last week of February.
Also, if you are interested in weighing in on Bridgerton: The Duke and I (or the television series) – check out the January book discussion.
Book discussion is open on the Facebook Group Page.
Or add you opinions in the comments. Here are some questions to get you started, but feel free to talk about whatever got you thinking:
Do you feel the trigger warning on this was enough to prepare you for the content?
How did you feel about the main character?
What are your feeling on the writing quality?
What were your overall thoughts on the situation this book presents?
Do you plan to read the other books in the series?
I personally couldn’t handle this book. The abuse was just too much for me and the rape scenes made my skin crawl. I also found the main character hard to believe. And the writing quality just wasn’t enough to make up for it all or keep me engaged. So, I put this down half-way through and walked away without looking back.
