Second Debt (Indebted #3)
Author: Pepper Winters
Release Date: 26 January 2015
“I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn’t. Jethro isn’t what he seems—he’s the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further.”
Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and sex…sex is her greatest weapon of all.
She’s paid the First Debt. She’ll probably pay more.
But she has no intention of letting the Hawks win.
Jethro Hawk has found more than a worthy adversary in Nila—he’s found the woman who could destroy him. There’s a fine line between hatred and love, and an even finer path between fear and respect.
The fate of his house rests on his shoulders, but no matter how much ice lives inside his heart, Nila flames too bright to be extinguished.
I’D TAKEN HER, but ultimately, she’d taken me.
I’d tried to destroy her, but serendipitously, she’d destroyed me.
This was the beginning of the end.
Not the end of my feelings for her but the way of my life, my world.
Something would have to change.
Something would have to give…
Someone would have to die.
Second Debt picks up where First Debt left us, desperate for more. Nila and Jethro are still locked in their deadly game where neither of them have full control of the plays. I love the chemistry between the two, but the soulful connection between them that develops in this book blew me away. Honesty starts to play a more important role in their relationship and it was so satisfying to see more of the real Jethro.
I will say the only thing that kept me from giving this book a full five stars was the back and forth in her feelings towards Jethro that Nila undergoes during the book. Whilst everything she feels is totally understandable, sometime the swinging between love and hate could be a little grating.
For everyone wanting to know more about Jethro's secrets, the debts and the history between the Weavers and Hawks (which is everyone, I know), then never fear! There is enough to just about appease your curiosity, whilst stoking it even higher.
One of my favourite things about this series so far is the utter unpredictability. I frankly never have a clue what to expect next and I love it. That ending....really was not expecting it and I honestly can't figure out what could happen next. Which just makes me absolutely desperate for the next installment. I need a glimpse into the author's mind just so I can know!
I'm not sure that Pepper Winters is capable of writing a book that just doesn't just slay me. The kaleidoscope of intensity and fierce emotions kept me completely enthralled. The book is rife with a dark poetry and I just adore how Ms. Winters can describe things so beautifully without overdoing it. I honestly can't recommend this series enough!
