Book Review – Debt Inherited by Pepper Winters

Despite not a fan of dark romances/BDSM genre, Debt Inherited proved to me that you don’t need to be a fan in order to enjoy the story. Every scenes had me in full alert, and despite the cruelty (which can be really disturbing to some), it was still a pretty fine read. The writing style was incredibly good too so why not give this one a try eh?

“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter.

She is no longer free.

Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.

There are no rules. Only payments.


I think the idea of paying a debt you inherited from your ancestor were kind of intriguing that’s why I decided to give this one a shot.

The first chapter really had me going and it also didn’t help that it’s a dual POV. I love dual POV! It gives me a clear idea what both the main characters were really thinking base on their own thoughts and it sure gave me an understanding despite all of those cruel things that’s happening on the heroine. It was really cruel and so inhuman I can’t still believe I was able to finish it let alone giving it a 3.5 star rating!

I’m never a fan of dark romances or BDSM despite having to read Fifty Shades of Grey lol. I’ve read three books of that said series but I don’t think I’ll ever be ready reading anything from this genre any time soon. My! I can’t even count how many times this book made me cover my eyes in a lame attempt to unsee or in this case, unread all those intense dark scenes. But I am saying that not in a negative side, I guess.

I think one of the things that made me stick to reading this story despite the heavy scenes was that it never once lost my attention. I don’t know how to explain it but every scene – however absurd or cruel it was, I can’t help but give them my full attention. It’s like I was in a spell lol.

There were ofcourse some scenes that were quite absurd or pathetic but it surprisingly didn’t faze me.

As for the characters, the hero sure is someone I’m definitely not wanting to meet in real life, haha. But in all fairness, I won’t deny that I find him hot, because he really is! His cruelty, all those selfish actions were also justified because of his upbringing. I’ll definitely want to see what he’s going to become on the next installment.

As for the heroine, dang! She’s definitely unpredictable. My first impression on her is that she’s a s*x craved girl because of her overprotective father and possessive twin brother shying her away from guys. And ofcourse you know me, I love twins. I guess that’s also the reason why the heroine got my attention as early as its first chapter, *wink. She was raised in wealth so imagine what she felt when she found out about the debt she needs to pay. It was really….crazy. She has her pathetic moments but I have to salute the girl for being so feisty and hopeful despite her hopeless situation.

Overall, I think it was a fine read except on the s*x texting thing though, haha. I just can’t seem to grasp what’s its use lol. Aside from that, I don’t think I have any other concerns because the writing style was surprisingly good.

For now, I am giving Debt Inherited a 3.5 stars and well, I think I am going to get a copy of the second book now, *wink.
