Entirely heartfelt, hot and should be the very next book on your TBR list - 4 starsThis book truly was outstanding and I can't express just how much I loved reading it. It's the kind of book that I felt in my chest and made me angry when life got in the way of my reading. I was thinking about Kat and Carter whenever the cruel world required me to put it down. The writing was beautiful and poetic; Jackson made me feel every single feeling and emotion. A Pound of Flesh
is a breathtakingly beautiful story about conquering your fears, finding love, redeeming oneself, and reminds us all to never judge a book by its coverTheir relationship was intense, drama filled and certainly filled with sex. But I couldn't have loved them more if I tried. It reminded me of Travis and Abby's relationship from Beautiful Disaster
by Jamie McGuire and it certainly holds the appeal of Fifty Shades of Grey
fans. This may be the book of the year for me, and I cannot wait to get my hands on An Ounce of Hope
The romantic telling of this story that held us captive. The reading of literature and poetry woven throughout was mesmerising as were the many memorable moments in this story of fate, hope, redemption and second chances. A Pound of Flesh
