Sometimes I read books, and I enjoy them, but I never think of them again. Sometimes I read books, and I enjoy them, and I think perhaps I'll read them again one day. But then sometimes I read a book, and I waiver throughout along that thin line between love and hate, and when I've finished reading it, I feel so emotionally exhausted and mentally taxed that it will take time before I fully recover from it.
This book was like that for me. It is packed full with so much rawness, explicit everything, vulnerability, emotion, forgiveness, love, redemption... not to mention the wealth of psychological implications surrounding revenge, sexual repression, sexual fantasies, self-loathing, self-forgiveness, selfishness, selflessness...
Nina Jones has achieved what every author wishes they could: an emotional gripping of the reader. All authors hope for that; Ms. Jones achieves it. Well done!
It is a dark tale. It is erotic. It is graphic. It does confront controversial topics, trigger topics, sensitive topics. It is explicit. But... oh god!... it is worth it, right up to the very end.
Mia Tibbett decides to indulge in a secret little sex fetish following a suggestion from a friend. So she logs onto a sexual fantasy website and hires someone to fake rape her—as in the sex is real but she’s consenting.
Tax Draconi has a vendetta against Mia and takes advantage of her pseudo rape scenario, replacing the ‘attacker’ with himself. Except his original plan to kill her shifts paths after engaging in the rape fantasy with her.
This is definitely a gritty, twisted story with an underlying depressing mood to the tale. It’s not the best dark romance I’ve ever read, but it’s still decent. As a thriller it’s pretty good. It’s probably most aptly categorized as an erotic thriller—trust me, there’s plenty of rough, detailed sex.
As a romance, I would have preferred more development in the relationship department. It’s over 400 pages after all; yet, the ending felt a bit abrupt and through much of the story there was a distinct pattern of sex—Mia and Tax individually lamenting over their feelings—sex again—feelings debate—sex…rinse-repeat. They tended to lack in the conversation department, and while I did sense their chemistry, I couldn’t always quite figure out what they saw in each other—as it felt like more tell than show.
Tax is an intriguing, broken hero. Despite his cruelness and the blood on his hands, I still felt sympathy for him and the hands in life he was dealt.
Mia came across a little weak in my estimation. Despite the obvious humiliation Tax is dishing out for her and the fact that he has some kind of grudge against her, Mia continues to see him through flowery rose colored glasses, certain that he just needs to get in touch with his feelings and be loved.
Told via Mia and Tax’s first person point of view, Debt has some good depth to its story, and the overall plot is crafted well. But some editing to improve the pace and eliminate what felt like repetition in parts would have made it a more solid four star read for me.
The characters are great and full of depth, the plot is intriguing and well written from dual POV. It's the kind of book that I will come back to reread and I will recommend it again and again. Enjoy!
Mia is looking for a little excitement in her otherwise dull, sex-free life, which is funny considering she works for a company that designs and makes sex toys. So when a friend tells her about a deep web service that you can hire to abduct you and take you forcefully (I’m avoiding a certain word here, because it is all consensual) she decides to take the plunge. But when she decides she wants to back out it’s too late, her “attacker” has already come for her, or has he?
Tax is looking to settle a years long debt with an unsuspecting Mia. He takes advantage of Mia having hired the “escort” service to exact his revenge, but it goes even deeper when Mia finds out that Tax is the new owner of her company and she works directly under him (in every sense, even the biblical one). But as he gets closer and closer Mia, he begins to question exactly what role it was that she played in that night that nearly ruined his and his sister’s lives. Was there really any ever debt at all?
Jones is becoming one of those one-click authors that you can just count on to tell a story that is complex, with characters that are so well-developed that the love or hate you feel for the is palpable. Tax is a swoon-worthy, alpha anti-hero and Mia is strong throughout her ordeal, something I admire in a heroine. The sex is hot and plentiful and the chemistry between the two is off the charts. This story is dark, and may not be for everyone, especially those triggered by rape, but if you’re willing to give it a chance, it is well worth it.
