Pepper Winters is one of my favorite authors of the dark and twisted genre, and she didn’t disappoint when it came to First Debt. She took a seriously messed up book with a crazy and intense ‘hero’ (and I use that term very loosely) that was kick ass on it’s own, and wrote a second book I loved even more than the first. Jethro Hawk is not anyones hero. He’s a villain. The bad guy in the story. But maybe… just maybe he’s not quite as bad as I originally thought.
Nila was told to run. And she did. But it’s pretty apparent that she wasn’t going to get far. I loved that she still tried. In these circumstances, it would be easiest to roll over and heel. To play nice and try to make things as pleasant as possible. But not Nila. She is doing her best to survive and she won’t let anyone control her. Jethro holds all the cards, but she slowly gets some of the power.
As the attraction and lust between Nila and Jethro come to a head, both have to decide if thats something they can handle. They both know their fate. Neither one chose it, but they are where they are.
“I don’t kiss my enemies.”
“You just fuck them?”
“Only if they beg.”
The sexy times in First Debt were truly sinful. Sexy, erotic, raw, yet very sensual. When physical turns to intimacy, thats where their problems really begin. Neither one can afford any type of feelings toward one another.
Feelings. Thats what is different in this book, opposed to the first. It’s not sweet or light by any means, but the hero of the story struggles with his feelings and obligations. It didn’t seem quite as cruel as the first. I love how she made Jethro a tad bit more likable and redeemable, but still kept him on the dark side. It would be unrealistic for him to take a huge leap in such a short amount of time…. but I definitely think it’s possible in the end. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
One thing is for sure. Nila and Jethro have both changed in big ways. They’ve been impacted hugely and it’s changed the way they thing, feel and look at things. Nila is as kick ass and resilient as ever. No matter how hard things get, she never gives up. She’s a fighter until the end. I love heroines who have that backbone. Even though Nila’s gone through this terrible ordeal, she’s living. Maybe even more than she ever did in her mundane life before Jethro.
Raw. Intense. Erotic. Deliciously Dark. Forbidden at it’s finest. I love that one of the big questions from book one got revealed. It wasn’t at all what I expected, which is great. Nothing better than being shocked or surprised by the twists and turns in a book.
Once again, Pepper Winters has written a dark and enthralling story. Be prepared to read nonstop because once you start this one, you won’t be able to put it down! 5 stars for the writing, 5 stars for the characters and 5 stars for the story! I’m anxiously awaiting more Jethro and Nila! For all lovers of the twisted tales, this is one I highly recommend!
“You’ve destroyed me, Nila. And now it’s my job to make sure they don’t destroy you, too.”
