OUR REVIEW:


So book 2 in this series started exactly where book one left off (so make sure you absolutely read book 1 FIRST or you'll be lost. Yes, this cannot be started mid-series guys. DON'T DO IT! 

In this second book, you'll find that Nila seems to become stronger and stronger and Jethro seems to vacillate more and more. She seems to have a more single-minded focus as he seems to be losing his. I love this journey Nila is going on, as sick as that is. Even with everything going on that we cannot tell you because, hello spoilers, the character development in her makes the story even more worthwhile for me.

It's interesting that both of them have some epiphanies about themselves in relation to their families; and without spoiling it, both of them are definitely having issues with the roles their families have in their lives. The struggle is real, y'all (at least for them). IT IS. IT IS INSANE, BUT IT IS REAL. Gah, these families are insane. But the story is well thought out, and I can't wait to see where the realization and struggles in what is expected goes as the series moves forward. The series is morphing in my eyes, and I was very, very, very excited about this book.

As with the first book in this series, Nila, and now Jethro, have a very conflicting emotions that seem to consume them. It's like watching a tennis match--a very quick one. I'll give Pepper Winters credit--she has her characters admit that they're doing it, so it's not a case of the author ignorant of how she's writing them. They are so conflicted. And in that honesty in their heads, we finally get  a little bit of information from them as we go. The pace is wicked fast, and I love that. We have to have this hard, passionate drive forward, or I don't think this would work so well for me. I am loving it, but if we also didn't have such honesty in each character's point of view it would be lacking. IT IS definitely not lacking.

Other random things: When we got to the 'first debt' scene I was happy that Pepper wrote it the way she did--I thought Nila's reaction was perfect. I also am very curious about what these other debts are... And, I'm eager to see how the rest of this story plays out. See, again with such honesty. There is nothing held back. Nothing. Whew.

The first book in the series was hard to take but this one, I felt, was one I settled into and read quickly and with less hating of myself for reading it (that first book...the scene where Nila is 'introduced to the Hawks..it's haunting). Yes. The first book, was omigod what have we gotten ourselves into thoughts, but we couldn't stop. And I'm glad. I really enjoyed this book. I can't wait to see where the debts go next, and I had a thought that I was right about. Thank God. But the end. Whew. Need the next one NOW! ..... Oh. And the unexpected steam. OMIGOD---->>> going to take a cold shower. 

Excerpt 
A small gasp fell from my lips as his fingers kissed the paper-thin skin. His eyes held me hostage. The golden brown was now a swirling bronze, raging with the same demanding hunger I knew reflected in mine.
“This sort of reminds me of the forest,” I whispered. “The trees around us—no one else.” My words fell like petals, waiting for Jethro to crush them beneath his glossy shoe.
But…he didn’t.
Tracing one hand from my wrist, along the inside of my arm, and right to my throat, he fisted my ponytail. With intensity that stripped my soul to the very essence of who I was, he pulled my head back slowly, sensually, full of sexual power.
His eyes dropped to my mouth. “I’ll let you in on a little secret, Ms. Weaver.”
I panted, my neck straining against his hold, but I made no move to break the poignant awareness.
“You won that night, but I lied when I said it pissed me off.” His mouth dropped, his tongue licked my bottom lip with the barest of grazes.

First Debt (Book Two) Indebted Series

Blurb
“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.



Debt Inheritance (Book One) Indebted Series

Blurb
“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter.
She is no longer free.
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.
There are no rules. Only payments.
