My entire world changed the second that I saw her in my casino.

She’s a professional gambler. And a cheat. A damn good one… but not good enough. And now she owes a debt to me. A debt that only her body can repay.

I’m restless with lust and need and desire for this thing of beauty not in my possession. My mind and cock are obsessed with her.

When I spank her for the first time

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2! Her Debt, book 1 of 3. Tristan sets in motion his devious plan to collect a debt only to get derailed by lust & compromise!

I really loved this book. The story was a deeply erotic and sensual BDSM tale. The pacing was smooth. I hung on every word, trying to savor each. Also, the intensity of emotions floored me. Unlike some BDSM books there was an amazing storyline rather than just sex! Give this book a try and I hope you fall as deeply for this Dom and sub as I have. I'm looking forward to reading book 2!

In short:

I sometimes need to remind myself that expectations of norms, rules and limits in any "fictional" world, situation or character that an author creates need not follow a formula. Come to think about it, when does our own reality ever live up to the absolute constructs we impose on it.? We are human and very fallible.

Your probably asking yourself and the point being? Here's the thing... I was somewhat rattled by the fact that Tristan, the dark devastatingly dashing Dom, basically abdu

Emma Lia learnt how to cheat with cards in casino from his father and with her brother she seems to be very lucky until she’s caught by the casino owner Tristan. Tristan gives her an ultimatum-become his submissive or go to jail. Emma Lia doesn’t like either of the options, but after considering both options, she chooses to become the submissive. It’s a world she doesn’t know much about, but that’s what Tristan likes about her.

It’s the first part of the series and it was a solid introduction to

I was pleasantly surprised by this author! I love how strong Emma is and that she doesn't bend so easily! I know, I know this is a dom/submissive story but it still is fun to see a sassy and strong person. I don't like Claire, I understand her frustration and anger but she is a sub and there was an arragement so..

I would recommend this to everyone who likes a little darker side story with dom/sub.

sadly this was a 2 star for me. liked the writing. I tried to keep an open mind but sadly I believe this might be myy last fiction book about BDSM. as some one who is living and learning more about this lifestyle I just couldn't get past what happened in the first chapter when he left his sub and had no aftercare.

God knows I'll read just about anything, but the conversation between the H {read: complete Asshole - with the capitol A} and the sub he's kicking out of his home to replace with a new one after a year...well, just NO.

Book #2 of 2020 is a bit different than my first. No fairytale syrupy sweet romance here.Nothing but some dirty, less than ethical, hot written porn to make 50 Shades fans blush. This book is mostly sex,with just enough storyline to keep it from becoming boring. While the story isn't extensive, Rose excels at giving the reader just enough to keep them interested and set this book apart from the loads (hehe) of other books in this genre. I know I'll be looking for the next in the series.

This is my first book by Rebel Rose but it won't be my last. Her Debt is about a woman that's born in the family of gamblers that cheat and steal the system. Emma Lia finds herself having fun and winning at the same time, that is until she's caught by Tristan himself. She has taken him for well over a hundred grand and he gives her two options, one is jail and the second is be his submissive and work off the debt. Tristan wants her and he will stop at nothing to have her. Emma Lia agrees because ...more

Sorry but this wasn't a book for me. I hate the idea of a man who rapes a woman.....and that is what he is doing. I didn't get through the first part it just disgusted me!

Her Debt is the first book in the Lock and Key series. Tristan is a sexy as sin dominate who has his sights set on a lawbreaking woman.

Emma Lia is a card shark. She plays the tables with skill and wins big with her brother by her side. Bad luck catches up to her when she is caught by casino owner Tristan. Now Emma Lia is looking fate in the eyes. Either submit to Tristan or go to jail.

Tristan is dying to break this one in!

This book was advertised as BDSM, but the most important rule in the community is CONSENT. I under what the author was attempting to do, but by kidnapping, blackmailing, and drugging Emma she was not given the change to consent. He even had an IUD placed inside of her while she was drugged.

Now, i do not have a problem with books that involve kidnapping or books that have ethical errors. One of my favorite books is about a man who kidnaps and psychologically “breaks” a woman by using sex. But th

Great idea that fell flat for me because the H turned into a wimp. He's a big, bad Dom who sort of kidnaps then drugs the h, invades more than her privacy with is on-call female doctor, what acts way beyond what'd expect - because he demanded it. Loved the edgy actions but I didn't like the h. She's vain, and spoiled and thinks she's smarter than she is. She is so arrogant, she puts her family at risk. But what I hated was that he found her 'assets's so spectacular, the H turns into a beta pussy ...more

I always love a good Alpha Male story with a strong female who is willing to relinquish control. This story surprised the hell out of me because I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I did. You have a young woman who gets caught cheating a Casino, but the Owner doesn't want her to repay what she's stolen from him, he wants to use her body for his own pleasure instead. He wants a woman he can train to be his submissive, molding her into the perfect sub. She is anything but submissive, and the ...more

Pleasant surprise

A friend sent me the link for this book and demanded I read the blurb. I did, and immediately one clicked the book.
Rebel Rose is a new author to me, and she has definitely piqued my interest.
I absolutely loved part one of Tristan and Emma Lia’s story.

I love the whole Beaty and the Beast vibe the story gives off.
The beast locking beauty in his castle, only this time he has no desire to be turned human again. He is quite happy to be the beast forever.

I am ready for part two!

How far will a man go to get what het wants? How hard will a woman fight to avoid giving in? Tristan Broussard is a man obsessed. Emma Lia is the object of his obsession. Once she comes on his radar Tristan sets out to ensnare her, control her, and make her submit by eliminating her options. Emma Lia resists him at every turn with a strength and resilience that calls to the Dom in him. He breaks his own rules for her. She is both outraged and enthralled by the idea of submitting to him.

Her Debt is Rebel Rose debut novel in the Lock and Key series and I absolutely loved it. I was hooked after the first chapter. Rebel’s writing is gripping and will have you wanting more.

Tristan Broussard is a casino owner who also happens to be a Dom behind closed doors, is ready for a new Sub, someone he can train for his particular tastes. Emma Lia Grant is a card shark who has been playing at this casino for a week, thinking she not going to be caught cheating. Little does she know that she j

On my gosh, pick a lane. Either embrace the dark so kidnapped you to be my love slave aspect o r be a living example of informed consent and consensual bdsm. Not the swinging back and forth between the 2. I

Not impressed by this book and not very much fun reading it.
♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️
I wanted to give this book 5 strong stars, but I couldn't and here is why.

First let me say, that I really enjoyed the story all the way around. The characters are good, and the story is strong.

Tristan is a Dom that is obsessed with the women that have taken his casino for a hundred grand. So he is going to give her an option. Become his sub or go to jail.

Emma Lia is a card cheat. She was told never to gamble in Tristan's casino, so when she is caught, she knows she is in a big deal of trouble.

ARC provided for an Honest Review. I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy and quick read( when I actually got to read). I am really excited to read the rest of the series and read about Tristan and Emma’s relationship. I will admit, not a lot happened in the book than I expected. I thought book one was going to have a lot more of the BDSM and their relationship. I can’t wait to read more about Emma and see her character change and evolve.
