I don’t know what I was expecting when I started this story. Mostly I was curious what kind of debt would cause a family to give up their first born female to another family. What would that family do to her? What had one family done to another to owe such a debt that never goes away? Curiosity killed the cat right? Well, it almost killed my desire to read for a few days and left me with so many more questions, I can’t decide if I want answered.

Nila Weaver is an aspiring fashion designer just finishing up her successful fashion show. Protected all of her life, she plans on a quiet dinner with her father and brother, when her father introduces her to Jethro Hawk, a man her father wants her to go out with for the evening. She senses something is wrong, doesn’t want to go, but feels compelled to follow. All the time she is texting with another man who sexted her by accident…or was it? At this point we don’t know who the mysterious texter is and really I felt he was an ass. Having been spurned through text, Nila goes willingly with Jethro and so starts the hell that is her debt for being a Weaver.

Jethro Hawk has lived a loveless life, being groomed to take over the family businesses while also becoming the head of the motorcycle club. His inheritance includes Nila. Given a crash course on how tradition goes and what is expected, he goes to collect Nila. Repulsed by her, but also attracted to her, he is ruthless in getting her to go willingly with him. In the end he resorts to threats to her family, taking her into a world that is mysterious to her as well as us.

So I won’t give too much away on this one since really we only get small pieces. Make no mistake, Jethro is pure evil for all of this book. His family is pretty bad as well. I couldn’t figure out why she was allowed to keep her mobile phone as she keeps texting with the obnoxious man on the other end. There is one point where you fell you are going to find out why there is a debt and what it will entail, but really you just get a preview of the endless depravity her life will embrace.  It’s dark, gritty, dirty and gasp worthy. *GASP*

Overall it’s one of those dirty little guilty indulgences on what would you do if your life was taken over for a debt. You know nothing, you are put in a sexual position where you life and your families life depends on you cooperating. You don’t know why? What? And you are sexually lustrated with a life so protected, you only lost your hymen from an one time deal.

So, I ended this one feeling let down with all the secrets, horrified on Nila’s behalf, but also wanting the answers to all the questions I had. Is it worth feeling dirty and soiled to read the next one? I don’t know. So for now, I am skipping it…until my curiosity kills me.

  • Pepper Winters is an author that I’ve wanted to try for a while. I do like dark erotica and I know it is not something for everyone. I should probably give this one a try, as I already have it.

      I think I am going to wait until 2016 to get back to this one. I read some reviews of the latter books that make me want to continue. It is a serial. so that’s another good reason for me to wait a little bit.

      • I’m not a fan of serials. I prefer to wait until they’re all out and then read them like a regular book.

  • I started this one a few weeks ago, but I put it down until I can bare to read it again. I only got to 12%, and it was pretty boring. So I told myself that it must be worth the read with that many ratings and reviews over on GR. I’ll give it another go one day. Great review!

      It was pretty bad to start with. I can’t say the writing really gets any better as the situation is really bad and very little is revealed except he owns her and will ultimately be her death. It’s like he owns her, but then lets her have liberties. It was just plain too weird at points. I am going to try the second one, but wait for 2016. Don’t want this to put a damper on my Christmas joy.

  • I love the premise..you typically see this trope in historical settings…doesn’t sound like it was executed very well if it left ya feeling dirty.

      Yep, the initiation was hard to read not knowing what would really happen. A group of British motorcycle club also making drugs and owning politicians …. it just all led to me mostly wanting to know what the heck was going on.

  • Hmm, it sounds like its that big shock-set up sort of thing, but revenge using an innocent has never set well with me so I can see why this left you with a bad taste. But I totally get why you are dying of curiosity.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I am dying to know what and why, but it will have to wait. Just too many other books I want to read for now.

  • eh I was halfway curious about this one, kinda glad I did not pick it up

      It is a tough one. The writing is kind of off and the story needs some depth I was missing.
