**This review is going to be done in three sections. One for each book.**
“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.
I accidentally read this book in one sitting. Oops…
I could not put it down. Just like the Monsters In The Dark series, I was sucked in.
So far, I really like Nila. Her name is very unique. She’s a unique individual. She’s a loner, only around her twin brother, Vaugn, and her father, Tex. Also, she has a weird obsession with texting someone she’s never met before.
She has a runway show for the clothes she makes and at the end of it her father introduces her to Jethro.
Jethro has yet to do anything to make me like him. He seems like the prick Pepper has made him out to be. My heart hopes he’ll be like Q. (Please be like Q and not an ass hole!!!)
Jethro brings her to her new home and they lay down the rules. They expect her to be obedient. She won’t go down without a fight though.
Nila is a strong person and I adore her for it.
This book was a fantastic read and I’m looking forward to what happens after that cliffhanger!
“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.
From the beginning, I knew I would like Jethro. He’s not as hard as he pretends to be. We know he’s waiting to inherit the entire estate, just to ruin it all.
We also know he has feelings for Nila. He even goes easy on her during the first debt, which is a big no-no.
He gives her the chance to run even, but if she can’t find her way out she belongs to him. We all knew how that one was going to turn out. He wrote down marriage-like vows. He now owns her soul.
Nila also thinks that this “Kite” she’s been talking to is Jethro’s younger brother, Kes.
This book was such a great follow up for Debt Inheritance. I couldn’t put the damn thing down. I love all of the characters. They are all so complex, even the characters who hardly have any scenes.
“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 naive 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.
So far, this is my favorite book of the series. So much happened.
Love, hate, punishments.
Nila finally gets pushed over the edge.
Jethro falls in love.
The Second Debt will probably be my least favorite out of all of them. Not that I would like any of them! But drowning will never tickle my fancy. If it weren’t for Jethro resuscitating her, she’d be dead.
With that, they blow their cover. His family finds out his true feelings of her. They know he’s not as hard as he needs to be.
It finishes with a cliffhanger. Nila is free because her brother did everything in his will-power to help her escape.
But she didn’t want to leave.
UGH. CLIFFHANGERS KILL ME. Luckily, I bought all of the books before I started reading the series!
