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.

Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆
4/5 Stars. I basically read this book in one sitting. I was captivated by this book. There’s just something about dark romances that I’m obsessed with. I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait to stick my nose into the next one.
TW: Abuse, sexual abuse, kidnapping, rape and murder.
I’m not going to lie, this book is very similar to Tears Of Tess, but I think that’s why I loved this book so much. I finally found a dark romance that’s close to what I already love.
Plot Rating: ☆☆☆☆
Seeing as this book is similar to my all-time favorite series, I love the plot.
Pearl, aka Button, gets kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. She’s sold to a monster called Bones. She’s made to do despicable things with him. That is, until she’s “saved” by Crow. Crow is almost like Bones, but better.
Obviously, they have more attraction to each other or there wouldn’t be a story.
Character Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆
I love Pearl. She’s such a strong character and she won’t let anyone break her. I love that there’s such a strong main character. And I love that even though her body’s been through so much, she’s able to find such enjoyment with Crow.
Crow is the just the person that she needs. He’s definitely hiding something and I’m eager to find out what it is. I can’t wait to see his character grow to love Button.
I hate his brother though. Cane is such a douche and I really hope either Button or Crow kills him off.
Writing Style: ☆☆☆☆
This is my first book I’ve read by PS and I really enjoyed her writing style. It was so easy to read and I never got lost or confused once. Her writing is captivating. She really knows how to keep you drawn to the book!
