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.

*Someone told me this is an MC book, I wish I knew before I bought this book.  I am not a fan of MC books.

I am quite repulsed by what I just read.  To be honest, this book was disturbing on so many levels, it was not easy to read and it got very uncomfortable really quick.

Debt Inheritance was about a bloodline debt, which can be traced back to 600 years ago.  Now you may wonder, what sort of debt was it that made you signed over the life of the first female born ? (after they are at a legal age)  Well, after finding out the truth (somewhat), I am quite taken back.  And I kind of thought it was bunch bull****.

Basically to avoid getting hanged, the Weavers’ ancestor signed an agreement with the Hawk’s ancestor to end the bloodbath.  In order to make up for all the heinous crime the Weavers committed (don’t know what they were), this agreement basically allows the Hawks to enslaved the first female born of the rest of Weavers’ bloodline.  What a load of carp!  What kind of monster would sacrifice your bloodline and make this sort of deviate deal with the devil!

Honestly, I am not sure how I got through some of the scenes in this book.  I was horrified, and disgusted by many situations that Nila Weaver has to go through.

Nila Weaver’s character was terrible, she was spoiled, bratting, and incredibly native.  She would do the stupidest thing over and over.  Say your father wants you to go out the night with an obviously dangerous stranger.  Say you go with him, and become uncomfortable then left.  Then you turned to the stranger that you have been sexting with, demand to meet him in person, because you are lonely and horny.  Then processed to have a fight with your sexting buddy, because he again, refused to meet you in person.  He would then accuse you to trying make more of this bizarre “relationship” you two shares.  Then he “break up” with you.  So your feeling is hurt, you feel a little humiliating.  So what do you do?  Oh right, you turn around and go back to the one person on Earth that you shouldn’t go to.  The obviously dangerous stranger.  And in your native and incredibly dense, pretty head, you think you can get back to your sexting buddy, by sleeping with this stranger.  (WTF, I don’t even know…)

Another stupid thing that Nila did, so she got punished and was sent to sleep in the barn with the dogs.  Somehow she still has her cell phone, and what does she do with this lifeline?  She used up her battery to reconcile with her sexting buddy.  (You got to be kidding me)

Jethro Hawk was a jerk, a monster, and a sadist.  He was basically looking forward to see Nila is being force to have sex with him, his father and all of his brothers (are you kidding me).  So Jethro is the first born of this Hawk’s generation, therefore he owns Nila Weaver.  Now, what I am understanding so far is, because he owns Nila Weaver, he should have the power to reject his father’s request, but Jethro didn’t not.  He allowed Nila basically serve food naked to his father and the fellow 27 other members of the club.  The services include each of the men basically sexual assault Nila.  (Are you f-ing kidding me).  Sure Jethro has felt some angry, because he was possessive of Nila.  But he allowed it anyway.  Then when one of his brother took it too far, Jethro took over and himself process to finish what his brother started on the dinning table, in front of 28 other men.

Where were the explanations, who die and make it alright for the Hawks to enslaved, sexually assault, torture, and killing the Weavers’ woman.  Sure the Queen had signed it six-hundred years ago, but I doubted she would’ve been ok with whatever the hell these Hawks man has been doing for centuries.  The so-called heinous crime (that was not explained) happened 600 years ago, it has nothing to do with the rest of the Weavers’ bloodline.  Nothing makes sense to me.

I think it would be quite difficult for Jethro Hawk to redeem himself after this book.  I don’t believe he would, and he certainly didn’t show any sign of regret or if he questioned everything he was doing to Nila.  He thought it was righteous, and he was awfully arrogant.

To me Nila was a victim in this book, it was horrifying and quite difficult to read what she had to go through.  And I felt the book was trying to justify and downplaying her situation, by showing us that Nila was feeling something while she was going through the assaults.  I am sorry, but that it’s not okay with me.

Honestly I don’t know why this was categorized as an “erotica romance” book, because not only I found nothing erotic in this book, there were also zero romance.  For me this was a bundle of humiliation, crudity, sexual deviate and just horrifying in general.  Maybe some readers are okay with this sort of subject.  But I am not, not even slightly.  This book is most definitely not for everyone.
