First Debt by Pepper Winters

This is the second novel in the Indebted series and it only gets crazier from Debt Inheritance.


“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 six hundred 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.

So we learn more about the so-called Debt Inheritance. And it’s very dark. How do they not realize that they’re basically doing the same thing Nila’s ancestors did.

Nila is definitely growing as a character. When she’s first introduced, she seems almost meek and complacent. Now she is starting to stand up for herself. And she believes that she can actually end this horrible thing.

Jethro is having a hard time coping with being close to Nila. And there’s something else, he has a condition that he is trying to gain control of, but it seems that Nila makes things difficult.

These two are constantly arguing, half the time I’m frustrated with their argument and the other half I’m like “why don’t you just kiss already?!” We also get to see a budding  friendship with Jethro’s brother, Kestrel, a.k.a. Kes. I’m still confused as to who Kite007 is.

Did I mention that Jethro’s youngest brother and his father are kind of awful, because they are. Honestly the whole situation is kind of horrendous. I believe we also meet Jasmine, the only sister Jethro has. She doesn’t seem so bad.

And when the first debt is paid, it’s harsh, how was that the easiest? Honestly, the only thing keeping me from stopping this series is how Jethro and Nila’s relationship will change. As of right now, they’re just debtor and debtee.
