New Review – A POUND OF FLESH by Sophie Jackson

It’s LIVE and well worth a one-click. You need to #MeetCarter


Their love is forbidden. But won’t be denied… Can true love heal the deepest scars?

For Kat Lane, teaching inmates at a New York prison is her way of upholding the legacy of her beloved father, murdered fifteen years ago. But when new student Wes Carter walks into her classroom, she’s shaken by the strength of her attraction to him. Carter is as handsome as he is dangerous, as mysterious as he is quick-witted – and he ensures people keep their distance. Yet vibrant Kat bypasses his defences and challenges him to reveal the real man behind the intimidating reputation. As their emotional barriers crumble, their inescapable but forbidden feelings cannot be ignored. But will Kat’s discovery of Carter’s role on the night her father died force them apart…or bind their hearts for ever?

A Pound of Flesh is a tale of loyalty, redemption and all-consuming love against the odds, introducing an irresistible bad boy hero…


Forbidden romance. Quite possibly two of my most favourite words when it comes to books, and those are two standout words when it comes to Sophie Jackson’s debut novel. A Pound Of Flesh is sure to put a sizzle in your summer reading list.

When Kat Lane and Wesley Carter meet at Arthur Kill, we soon find out that their connection runs far deeper than that of a prison tutor and her criminal student. Sparks fly–along with desks–and in no time at all you have the makings for one of the most addictive reads of 2015.

The storyline made for gripping reading, both the background of the characters and the situation in which they now found themselves in, though I felt like the fact they were in this taboo relationship was brushed aside during the second half of the book, and more conflict/drama could have been added.

Considering Carter is a known criminal, I have to say that I loved everything he was. He was loyal almost to a fault, protective to the core, incredibly smart, and sexy as sin! Kat was the perfect match for Carter. She balanced him out and fought for what was right.

Life has never been easy for Carter and his Peaches, but by paying their debts, they were rewarded with something far greater than either of them could have ever imagined. Eternal love.
