Publisher's Summary

"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 600 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.

Book 2 is even more addictive!

First Debt is the second book in Pepper Winters' Indebted series. It picks up where book one left off, so it should definitely be read in order. For me this book was even better than the first. It shows you more of an insight into Jethro Hawk's life as well as Nila Weavers.

For generations, the Hawks have been collecting the debt owed to them from the Weavers. What started out as cruelty of the Weavers towards the Hawks, turned into a generational debt only the first born Weaver can repay. The crimes the original Weaver family committed are now being sought as retribution for the acts that were committed against them. Mark for mark, tear for tear, each debt will be repaid, according to the Hawk matriarch, even if those that must follow it out are in just as much pain as the indebted!

Pepper Winters ability to develop characters that delve deep into your heart is outstanding. As much as I don't want to like Jethro Hawk, the more I find myself feeling for him. The way she pulled me into this story and had me burning through the pages was incredible. I had to know what was going to happen next. Before I could even write this review, I had to start on book three. This series is that good!

PS- Will Watt and Kylie C. Stewart do a phenomenal job of narrating this series. I actually purchased this series because I am a fan of Will Watt, but two books in and I am honestly a fan of all three of this incredible trifecta. The dynamic duo bring Pepper's world to life and I simply cannot get enough. Well done!!!

The narration is the best I've heard on Audible

Addictive, dark, tense. Not for everyone. The narration truly takes it over the top. I can't wait for the third book to release!

If you like a story with the Male being a wimp..

This book has probably been the most frustrating stories to try and get through, ugh. The male character always being so "what are you doing to me". I cannot, this story line was different and I THOUGHT it might be interesting, but it is simply annoying. There is little to no sexual encounters and this is book freaking 2. I- I'm done, no I could not finish this book let alone the series. I'm out, good luck if you choose to read or listen to this anyways.

So far I go from not being able to quit listening to being almost sick to my stomach. So we'll see what happens

Wow, even more questions as the debts play on...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this series keeps getting better as the debts play out and there are more debts to come. The audio performance is great and writing is amazing.

What other book might you compare First Debt to and why?

They are similar styles to Tillie Cole's dark style of writing and also about a MC club but also very different all together. Tillie also has violence in her books so if you are used to that some of the storylines in this book are nothing compared to Tillie's books. I would also say they are similar to Penelope Sky's Button Series as they are about a debt but this one is much darker than that book series.

What does Will M. Watt and Kylie C. Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The vocal perfomaces bring life to the books that just reading the story from a page doesn't. Reading a book and hearing a book are two different things. When you hear a performance from Will and Kylie you can hear emotions and almost be brought into the storyline. It's like the story is being brought to life instead of just reading the book and turning the page.

CLIFFHANGER

I enjoyed the story but HATE the way the book ends. I understand that it's a series but is it to much for one book to finish an idea & start a new idea in the next book?

Yuck!!!

Would you try another book from Pepper Winters and/or Will M. Watt and Kylie C. Stewart ?

The summary of this book was intriguing and I was looking for a series. I'm not a prude but the opening chapter was so grossly sex-focused... Can't call it erotic, not sure that pornographic is entirely accurate but certainly graphic and brimming with gratuitous sex from the opening. I had no reason to care about the story, the characters or connect in any way. This book was a huge purchase mistake. I regret buying it and deleted it from my device after Chaper 1.

Excellent Narration

Love this series. Pepper Winters writing is phenomenal!
The narration by Will M. Watt and Kylie C. Stewart were so believable.
I'm not a huge fan of Audibles but these two narrator's are Very Good!
They made me believe that they were actually the characters they were reading.
Well done!

Devastating-excellence!

Just wow! This book is achingly terrible and devastatingly beautifully delivered. Performances by Will Watt and Kylie Stewart are the icing on the cake that is this tragic story. Moving on to book 3 with what is left of my broken heart and the whiplash from unexpected plot twists.
