Blog Tour and Giveaway: Indebted #3-First Debt by Pepper Winters
“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.
My 5-Star Review
The story-line of this journey is so unique, one can't help but to be drawn in. It's captivating and gruesome at the same time. When I read the first book, I had certain expectations for the rest of the series... However, Pepper has already taken me places I hadn't expected. I can't wait to continue with this journey in the second book.
In this book, we get a few answers to things that didn't quite make sense in the first book. Then, we are handed some new perplexities that we can only speculate on at this point. Nothing about the details of this story are cut and dry, black and white. It's all grey area. These characters are who you perceived them to be and, at the same time, they are not what you expected them to be.
Aside from the "debt", these characters are all forced to face who they truly are. They have buried their true selves long ago in order to appease their families. Now they are forced to let their guards down and learn some hard lessons about life. This isn't just a story about some sick family and their unwillingness to let an age-old vendetta go. It's about people forced into a life they may not have wanted for themselves, who are now learning more about themselves than they thought existed.
I got to know Jethro and Nila a lot more in this book. I can't say I dislike either of them. I don't necessarily like some of the choices they make in this part of the story. However, it is survival of the fittest in this story. Who will triumph. Who will come out on top. Who will win. We are also introduced to Kes in this book. I can say, I don't care for him. It is clear he has his own agenda, and I wouldn't doubt that he would stab his own brother in the back without batting an eyelash.
I can't wait for the next book.... Although I am a little squeamish to see what the next "debt" is that Nila will have to endure. My heart is already breaking for her after the first "debt". I expect to see more cruelty and passion as this story continues!
