“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.

Second Debt is another deliciously dark and intense installment in the Indebted series. With every book in this series, I get more drawn in, more invested in Nila and Jethro’s story. I have to know what happens next. And after the ending of this one, I’m just dying for the next one!

Nila Weaver thought maybe there was something more to Jethro Hawk. That she could make him care for her. Fall for her. And maybe, just maybe, things would turn out differently for her than the rest of the Wea

“Second Debt” is the third installment in Pepper Winters's “Indebted” series and picks right where the last installment ends.

To say this book was intense and kept me on the edge of my seat it would be a understatement. There’s so much going on in this installment. The story is so unpredictable, you never know what will happened next. It’s angsty, twisted and I couldn’t put it down. Nila and Jethro’s relationship becomes more and more complicated with every installment.

If we can’t hate Jethro hawk is because there is no stable identity to hate, , he’s been manipulating and screwing with Nila's head sometimes he is human loving caring lover and other times a blood thirsty monster , Do i think that Jethro is a hypocrite ? Well i do, and so should you !! He pretend to be a cold monster but his actions is telling us otherwise ! I dont even know what’s going on any more the story has lots of turns and twist !!

4.5 STARS! ★★★★☆

"In that simple fusion of flavour and souls, we gave up. We gave in."

If I can just sum up this book in ONE word, it would be f*cking INTENSE. Okay okay, that's two words but holy hell! This one could have set my Kindle repeatedly on fire with the amount of angst and smokin hot scenes. Everything was just burning up with this instalment, emotions were running an all time high and the series of events unfolding went on a whole new level that's about to spin out of control.

Pepper Winters has the ability to leave me shell shocked every time. This book was completely intense, it kept me on edge the entire time I was reading it and at the end I was open mouthed, turning the page in hope to read more, but nope, it was the ending! My god, woman, why are you so cruel??

Okay, this book was intense and explosive! As of now I’ve actually read it twice and even knowing what happens while I read the second time around, these characters and plot twists still manage to surprise me. That’s one thing I love about this book and series – the story is just so unpredictable. Books that keep me on my toes, has an edgy romance, and dynamic characters are my favorite, and this book had all three.

When Debt Inheritance came out, Pepper Winters introduced us to the cold, brutal, terrifyingly unfeeling Jethro Hawk. And with each new installment of this series she has been systematically chipping away at his armor to reveal more and more of the man that keeps hidden inside, behind the icy persona.

Dark, disturbing and utterly consuming.

If there’s one author who I can guarantee will get my heart pounding at what I’m reading it would have to be Pepper Winters. She’s in a class all of her own in dark erotica and this series is getting ever darker with each instalment if that’s even possible.  She transforms the written word into absolute physical horror and it’s so freaking compelling, it’s not true.

As always with these Debt Inheritance books, the story ambles along at a fairly steady pa

If you thought book #1 and book #2 was terrifying, book #3 is ten folds INTENSE than first two! The entire game of Debt Inheritance has been changed by the very love infiltrating hearts and minds of Debtor and Debtee.

Second debt starts off with Nila learning the truth of her mother’s disappearance and her fate if and when she pays her final debt, the very proof of that is the past of her ancestors, every first born weaver women w

Second Debt is the third installment in the Debt of Inheritance series.
This book can't be read as a stand-alone so if you haven't read the previous two books. it's best to stop reading this review and start the series with Debt Inheritance and First Debt

This books got me hooked from the first page until the last (and damn, that ending!! But we'll get back to it in time)

The third installment of the Indebted series, was all-consuming. This is an awesomely intense read, full of questions, anxiety, and forbidden lust.

At the end of First Debt, Nila had found out one of the mysteries we've been dying for: Who the hell is Kite007? She needs to figure out how to use this information to help out her situation.

Second Debt was one of those pull your heart out on the ground and let it bleed type of reads.

With everything moving at a roller coaster jet speed, Nia and Jethro find themselves dwindling more and more into dangerous territory between their two feuding houses and their unfolding forbidden romance.

I will read anything Pepper writes and I have! Indebted Book 3 is FANTASTIC. I've said it before and Jethro has somehow managed to steal my heart from Q. (Sorry, but I know Tess is taking good care of Q's heart!)

Jethro on the other hand needs me! And, I'll be there for him!!

We were damned to our fates, brought together by a ridiculous vendetta. Yet…something right had come out of something so wrong. We’d somehow found the one person we were meant to find.
This book changed everything for me. I felt a little sorry for Jethro and protective of him. Am I crazy? Probably.
