I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

A Gritty Yet Stunning Debut by Sophie Jackson

A Pound of Flesh - Sophie Jackson

Gritty and bold, while still remaining utterly passionate, A Pound of Flesh was a dynamic debut novel from Sophie Jackson.

‘Theirs was a love beyond words, beyond reason, beyond even the two of them. It was indescribable, inexplicable, but unbreakable and unyielding. Their connection, their bond, was sixteen years in the making.’

I guess what surprised me most was the tender, all-encompassing love story between Carter and Kat. The cover and book synopsis made this seem like a dark story, which it certainly was. But the connection between our hero and heroine as well as the loyalty they felt was so powerful that it negated the darker undertones. At least for me.
