This is the fourth instalment in Pepper Winters' perverse and twisted take on Romeo and Juliet. Two star-crossed lovers from opposing families falling in love despite everything and we all know how Shakespeare's version ended. Will Jeth

What the bejeezus was this book?! There’s no question I loved it and I read it in one sitting too, but holy flying mind is a mess right now. I thought the other books in this series were intense but nope, they don’t even compare when it comes to this 4th book. I would even go as far as to say that Third Debt is my favorite book in the series thus far and I see it as the turning point in Jethro and Nila’s dark, twisted journey.

It's been a few days since I finished Third Debt and I still don't know how to express myself about this book. It left me speechless by the end and I am numb ever since. I am broken, destroyed, ruined for life after that book. I think that Pepper Winters and her series Debt Inheritance are by far my most favorite and most anticipated for me. She's a true genius and I can't give her enough praise. If you love reading about dark stories this one is a MUST RE

"Nothing is ever black and white, Nila. You should know that by now. It's all how you survive the grey."

How is it that Ms Pepper still continues to stump me at every turn? I really thought I should have known better after one cliffy to another but HECK NO. She just pulled out a massive one here that left my brain crying at the idea of that ending!! Honestly, I'm still trying to pull my thoughts together after this read because let me tell you it was freaking. intense.

I have to be honest here...I was scared shitless to start din fourth book in the series. And, no, not because the previous book ends with a huge cliffhanger. Actually every book in this series (so far) ended with a cliffhanger so, no. But because I knew something colossal will happen in this installment, something that will change everything. I just felt it! And I was so fucking right! Anyway..this installment is hands down the best (so far) in the series. At least for me. “Third Debt”

It's no secret,I have a HUGE author crush on Pepper Winter's writing.

As many of you know, I'm a fan of dark and NO ONE does it better than her!

This series is amazing! Book #1 Indebted is basically the beginning of the story. Each book after is a debt, a complete story. These are 100K words. And boy are they full of intrigue, twists, love, heartache, pain...OMG...I could go on and on.

I LOVE Nila and Jethro. I'm captivated by their story and the obstacles they both must overcome. Th

At the end of Second Debt, we were shocked to find that someone has come to free Nila from Hawksridge.

After some time apart, Nila still has a longing for Jethro. She desperately wants to go back, as she has no desire to be back in her old life. She also has no clue as to what's become of Jet

How can I start to explain the state I'm in right now. I think Pepper Winters is definitely my favorite author. Each book she writes, she proves me she can exceed herself, she can re-invent her characters and bring her readers to exceed themselves.

What's even more spectacular is that with her Indebted series, she is

Being apart from Jethro made Nila realize what she really gained and wanted out of the atrocious Debt Inheritance. Naively, she followed her heart and tried to find her way back into his without realizing that Jet was no longer someone she thought she knew as he found a new perspective in life.

Third Debt picks up right when Nila is taken from Hawksridge at the end of Second Debt. Nila may be out from underneath Cuts roof, but for her to stay safe Jethro is going to have to pay the price. If he's going to live, Jethro has to do everything he can to earn back his fathers trust. To do this he takes pills that numb him and leave him an empty shell of himself.

My soul is literally crying after reading this book!! Just when I thought that Pepper Winters could not thrill and shock me more, she pulls out all the stops in this latest book in the centuries-old Weaver/Hawk family feud. This is a long, very dark, brutal yet sexy and erotic story. I am completely addicted to Jethro and Nila. Bring on the next book! And the peek into the upcoming Ruin and Rule was a pleasant surprise.

It’s so fucked up, so freaking different. I love every heart stopping, gut wrenching, I am going to fucking lose my mind any second, moment in this series.

Okay my wonderful wonderful friends, I have finally decided to sit down and write the review for this book. Just a couple of warnings. One is that this will not be my typical review. Normally I sit down and collect my thoughts before I write my reviews. This brings me to point number two. I've been struggling for nearly two weeks to write this review. That does not in any way mean that this is a bad book. Its actually frickin' amazing and that's the problem.

Just when you think that Nila and Jethro have finally come to terms with their feelings, something else happens to throw everything back into a state of turmoil. The love/hate relationship between the two is as intense as ever. This book had my rapt attention from start to finish.

Cliffhanger!! That cliffhanger is the death of me. This is the best from this series. I love how Jethro finally telling us whats wring with him. And i love him more.

I do love the relationship grows between Jethro and Nyla. They both finally admitting their true feeling toward each other. I feel it all. Just like Jethro feel the burden of his world and his destiny.

The story has not ending yet. Now off to the next book.
