Blog Tour & ARC Review: Second Debt by Pepper Winters

26 Jan 2015

Second Debt by Pepper Winter is LIVE! 
Read the dark & sexy continuation to Jethro & Nila’s Story!



Second Debt (Book Three) Indebted Series

“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. 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.


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.
"You don't know the meaning of intense. I'll show you intense. I'll show you what it's like to live in a world full of fucking intensity."
Ladies, we are about to move into some dangerous territories with this one and what an absolute rollercoaster ride it was. If there's anything that this author can do right, it's definitely throwing these characters into the depths of hell and making them claw their way back up. I don't even want to go too much into details but if you think the First Debt act was cruel and vicious, you ain't see nothing yet till you see the Second Debt.
"Delusions were no longer something to fear, but to be embraced. Delusions brought fantasies to life, soothing me, eradicating monsters from my world."
I've never been so terrified for a character's life and trust me, Ms Winters delivered the dark and gritty with this act. My heart was in my throat as I read that scene and in that moment, I truly felt and grabbed onto every inch of resilience that was left in Nila.


 The push and pull dynamic between Jethro and Nila definitely intensifies, they're both prisoners in their own ways and won't be long anymore till they break into each defences and release themselves from the shackles. We definitely got to delve so much more into Jethro's psyche and make you feel for this iceman. Feelings that they both can no longer ignore but will acceptance save them or worst of all, get them both killed.
"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."

 And holy freakin hell, with each book comes a bigger cliffy that makes me anxious for the next one! This ending once again will propel the series into another direction and I absolutely cannot wait to see what Ms Winters has in store for us. I have no doubt in my mind that with each book, this series just keeps getting better and better. 

  Second Debt is the 3rd book in the Indebted series and must be read in order with the previous books.
