**This is a dark title with adult themes.***
Benny loves his pretty little dolls.
As long as they do exactly as they’re told.
He keeps them perfect by brushing their hair
and gives them pretty dresses to wear.
He likes to toy with them late at night.
One so timid but the other likes to fight.
When his favorite doll runs away…
despite the other doll promising to stay,
his heart becomes broken and he can’t help but cry.
He wants her back home or his pretty little doll must die.
Have you ever had to make a decision that haunts you every single day for the rest of your life…the life you stole back?
I ran for my survival, rocks and twigs cutting into the soles of my feet, my lungs burning and screaming for rest, every muscle tensed and fighting along with me for existence.
I left her.
I ran, ran, ran—from Benny and his lone, pretty little doll—until I couldn’t remember where to find them again.
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
I know what you're thinking. "Ker Dukey and K. Webster are working together to write a dark book? I will never be the same person again." You would be right. Dark, gritty, dirty, and sexy are just a handful of the words I'd use to describe Pretty Stolen Dolls. Incredible, unforgettable, and twisted are a few other words I added after completion. Known for their incredibly dark and unique novels, Ker Dukey and K. Webster combined forces to write PSD, a total wildcard in the dark genre right now. Intentionally left vague, PSD follows Jade Phillips as her past catches up to her present. Kidnapped as a teen, she escaped the clutches of Benny and spends every moment since thinking of how to find him again and punish him the way she's punished herself since she ran and left behind another doll. Jade is an incredible narrator, if only a bit unreliable. With glimpses into her past, the reader sees her become a strong, determined woman with haunting memories. Benny, or Benjamin, is the darkness. Years later and he still spins Jade's mind with his twisted words and terrifying actions. Every move she makes, every thought she has, circles back on her, never allowing her to move past her time imprisoned as a doll.
“He's on the hunt again.
If he’s on the hunt,
then he’s growing bored with his little dolly.
maybe he’s replacing a doll who’s too broken to repair.
I have to find her.
It's a story about obsession, the kind of obsession that rules your life. As the obsession deepens, so too does the darkness in Pretty Stolen Dolls. There are new twists at every page turn, a slowly thickening plot line, and a romance that makes the darkness even more inviting. It's the kind of book you can't look away from, you can't put down, and if you're me, you don't care that you're reading it on a plane full of people. It made me angry, it grossed me out, disgusted me, and yet it still made me smile. I like the darkness, it's nice there. It's a nightmare come to life and Ker Dukey and K. Webster did a magnificent job putting that nightmare into words. If you're looking for a new dark read, look no further than this new release from the Queens of Darkness themselves. I can promise you this, the cliffhanger is worth it.
My beautiful, broken girl....All of your pieces are mine to hold. Each shard is mine to willingly slice myself on. You're worth the pain. In fact, I want to embrace that pain if it means, even for one second, I can take some of that pain from you.
