Summary: The Debt Collector
I pay my debts, and I expect others to.
I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father’s passing meant I would automatically take on dad’s debts. I refused.
And I paid for that refusal.
So did my sister.
So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that’s where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a “favor” when I arrived.
I paid for that one too.
I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her.
Besides, trouble is my middle name.
I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn’t care who gets rolled over in the process.
I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying “I’m sorry.” The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad’s wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.
I drink. I party. I meet guys.
But I wasn’t always like that.
I’ve had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many ways, and yet so the same.
She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun.
But there’s a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you.
Which is when I met the Debt Collector.
It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me.
And yet…so unbelievably right.

Source: I received a digital ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review and participation in the Release Spotlight.
Debt was a stand alone new adult novel involving a college girl and an underground fighter, which may sound familiar, but it was definitely unique. It was full of romance, and while it was steamy, it wasn’t just a short novel filled with various scenes. I felt like the story did a full arc and explored the characters pretty well.
The book explored both Kyla and Logan’s past and actually contained some closure with their childhood issues, which was definitely awesome. While Logan and Kyla had a very instant connection, their relationship didn’t feel rushed or anything. I’m so used to New Adult books being so rushed and fast and hot, so I was definitely impressed with how well the author did with creating multifaceted characters with backgrounds and issues, while also delivering great romance in the process.
I definitely enjoyed Debt and I will read more from the author in the future. It would be nice if the book became part of a series and explored some of the secondary characters like Tyler and Vera, but I’m glad that I got to see a little bit of Kyla’s friends and even Logan’s acquaintances.
