“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.
I have to admit that I was debating between 4-5 stars, so this will take 4.5 stars from me. It certainly was a better installment to the first book, 'Debt Inheritance'.
I enjoyed the First Debt way more than the first one. I remember being frustrated after reading Debt Inheritance. I remember how much I loathed Jethro. I remember being even a fan of Kestrel and I was shipping him with Nila.
Well, guess what? Things change, people change.
And boy, did the MCs in this book changed! Whoah! I couldn't believe how much Jet had changed in this sequel. It was like reading an entirely different character. I was so shocked that at first it didn't sit well with me. Such a rapid change of character? Like I said, it was like it wasn't the same character & I was a little disappointed to be honest.
BUT moving through the book I could see what was really going on. What was hidden beneath his character & I have to admit that I enjoyed his character development.
But what I enjoyed most was Nila's character development. The weak fashion artist we knew from the first part with the constant vertigo issues? She's got some balls & I certainly enjoyed how she changed throughout this sequel. I can't wait to see more of her in the next installment.
I have to say that I really admire Pepper's writing. She needs a damn applause for this. I loved the raging war between Jethro & Nila. I loved how their constant meetings were always a battle of who would win and who would lose. Who was the hunter & who was the prey. I enjoyed watching things becoming reversed. Nila going after Jethro & him trying to pull away from her. I'm such a happy reader thanks to her.
We couldn’t deny what’d just happened.
It wasn’t just sex. It wasn’t just lust.
It was something more.
What I can't say I enjoyed was that, even though I accidentally spoiled myself about Kite's identity, I have to say that it was the only thing predictable while reading this book. Yes, I already knew who he was while reading, but still, it seemed too obvious.
Nonetheless, I would encourage people to read this series. And I know that the first one may not be very pleasant, but keep reading, because this one definitely explains a lot & it doesn't disappoint! :)
