its almost shameful listenjng to this and thinking its good because it happens! its not just entertainment but it is written very well and the strength of character is the mainstay of the story.

Pennies by Pepper Winters is a great first book in the Dollars series. I had a love/hate relationship with Elder Prest but can't wait to find out more of his past secrets. I didn't like the way Kylie Stewart read the character of Pimlico. I switched between reading and audio and I felt she was a stronger character when I read than when I listened.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I wouldn't recommend this audiobook, as it does not enhance the reading/listening experience. Had this been my first read of this book, I may not have gone on to read the series.
This is the second time reading Pennies and the first time listening while I read. As an avid reader, I love to listen while I read. When the narrator is spot on, it brings the book to life.
Kylie did an extraordinary job as Pimlico, however, Eric's narration was poor. He read as if he was just simply READING, monotone, boring. There was no dramatization, no inflection, no emotion for the character of Elder. When changing his voice for Alrik, his voice took on some character. I actually turned down the volume on the male parts of the audio, so I could read it in my head, in my own voice. It really is a shame, Pepper Winters is an incredible author, and this audiobook could have been phenomenal had there been a different male narrator.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
This is not Eric's first audiobook. I actually looked up his work because I was so shocked that his voice was so boring, lacked inflection, emotion, drama. The character is fighting an internal battle, heated and demanding conversations with Alrik, dominating and compassionate conversations with Pim. You get no of that with his narration. Very disappointing. I'll read the next book but will not spend the money for the audio.

Thought-provoking. Heart-breaking. Profound. Gut-wrenching. Those were my initial thoughts. I know they don't all sound great, but this book is the perfect dark and gritty romance.
I've never read anything this dark and been this moved. Pepper Winters is a masterful writer. Although my heart pounded and broke for Pim, I loved everything about this book. In the face of pure horror, our heroine, remains strong. That was key for me. Add great writing to a great heroine with a stunning storyline and that leads to 5 Stars!!
