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 have.
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.
I’m sorry.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Jade Phillips and her sister were taken by a disturbed man when she was a teenager. After years of enduring the nightmare as Benny/Benjamin’s favorite living doll, she managed to escape and vowed to return for her sister. But years gone by and it turned into a cold case until Benny decided he wanted back what belonged to him.

When I see a book that is dark and disturbing, it feels like coming home – that special warm, fuzzy feeling that make me feel like I belong. This book gave me that haha!

This is what I do. I’m like a poison, polluting the people I care about.

Even though now free, Jade was still imprisoned by her nightmare. Benny haunted her every time and everywhere. But, she was not just some scared fragile victim. Her strength and determination was something admirable.

Oh, Benny is the one I love, love, love…
My ultimate favorite type of character is not just the dark, but especially the disturbed. There’s just something about their psyche that’s so hauntingly beautiful. Benny is a sick fuck for sure. My kind of sick fuck lol!

“You’re my little doll,” he groans against my hair as he thrusts brutally into me.

For me, this book wasn’t that dark. It was mostly suspense in between the dark but it does contain triggers. The sex scenes were hot especially the ones with taboo element.

“Such a dirty, dirty doll. Why did you run away from me— from us? I kept her just for you and that was how you showed me your appreciation?”

Pretty Stolen Dolls is a story of obsession and possession between the victim and the captor. The enthralling cat and mouse game is paired with a good balance of darkness and suspense.

Note 1:
That creepy rhyme is now stuck in my head, head, head… haha!

Note 2:
If I’m going to dress up for Halloween, I know what I’d be – Benny’s dirty little doll :p

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.

International Bestselling Author Ker Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
