It was a debt to be settled, a price to be repaid.

Sold. My body, mind, and soul, are given to the most terrifying man I’ve ever met.

Enzo King.

Violent, commanding, gorgeous, and sinister.

He’s a killer, a thief, and feared by many.

He has the ability to pin me to the ground with one single look and make me feel things I don’t want too.

Feeding off my fears, he holds me captive in his mansion away from the rest of the world.

I know what’s to come.

He’ll break me.

Take from me.

Own me.

Soon enough my life will no longer be my own, but his.

Every part of my body, every breath I take, and every beat of my heart will belong to him.

He’s determined to settle the debt by taking everything from me, what he doesn’t know is that he’ll never have my soul or my love.

**This book was previously published in 2014 under the title Indebted, but has been completely rewritten with new character names, and a more in depth story line. You’re not getting the same story from before.**

This book started out with a brutal scene and of course, that got me right into it, lol.

I love a good mafia story when it’s done right and this one certainly was!

I thought I had figured out who had done what and how it was going to end right from the beginning but!!! I was wrong! (yes it happens once in a blue moon).

So, yeah, points for surprising me, lol!


I liked this lass. 

She was just your average 20-something making her way in the world, off to uni, thinking she knew what was what in life.

Her mum passed on a year or so ago and she was nervous about leaving her da’ to deal with the farm alone.

After getting an email asking her to come home, however, her whole life just got fucked right up.

Dad has borrowed money that he can’t pay back and the only things they’ll accept are either her going willingly with Enzo or they kill her pops.

I have to say as the story went on the more I liked her.

She spoke her mind…maybe a little too much, lol, but that’s what I liked.

It kept just ‘slipping out’ and I loved how that infuriated Enzo.

She’s got some spirit, I’ll give her that.

“Did you just yell at me?” I ask coolly. Now she really did hit a nerve, and the only way I know how to deal with things that get on my nerves is to kill them. Except I can’t kill her. Lowering her voice and keeping it even, she answers, “I told you exactly what I’ve wanted to since you tied me up in my home.” This time she is the one radiating coldness, and that angers me even more. This woman is infuriating. I hate and love it at the same time. No one talks to me like she does. Even through her fear, she can’t help but speak her mind, and there is something refreshing about that.

She also has a wee bit of a dark and kinky side that she knew nothing about before meeting him. And of course, she was a virgin before he got to her – you know how I love a good virgin heroine story.


This guy is a prick. And he gives zero fucks if it offends you.

He has a very dark side that he has actually nurtured in order to get revenge for his mother.

He’s the big boss of one of the top mafias and has long ago lost any humanity…or so he thought until he met Amara.

He gets what he wants. 


And no one talks back to or disses him.


Until, again, he meets Amara.

I feel myself growing feral with every word that slips from her mouth. She’s mouthy, she’s sinfully sweet, and she’s extremely dangerous to my sanity.

He is intense and hot as sin…and also quite possibly a little unstable.

But all the best ones are!

Awesome alpha-hole, lol.


Can we just take a moment to appreciate that an author finally wrote a heroine that didn’t ‘love the taste of his come’ !!!

Hot semen hits the back of my throat, and though it tastes salty and absolutely disgusting, I swallow every last drop.

We don’t all love the taste! 

But some of us love the power we hold over them while we do it, ye ken?


Oh yeah…I had my hips rocking along with Amara a few times during this book, lol.

“Please,” she greets me with a begging plea as she lifts her other leg to place it over my shoulder to allow me to grip her ass and bring her pussy to my face. She smells delightful, and I can’t decide what I want to do more— fuck her or eat her out. I nuzzle her, and I feel her legs grip my face tighter. I smile like the prick I am. My tongue darts out, circling around her clit. “Fuck…” she cries out. Her fingers grab at my hair. Fuck is right… Nothing in this world can pull me away from her. Leaning forward, I lick her from back to front until her legs are shaking. Her hips move feverishly, and I can tell from the purrs she is making that she is right there. I enter her slowly with one finger, testing just how close she is. Her muscles clench around my thick digit as I suck her clit into my mouth. Who knew such a small, little thing could bring such great pleasure? “Oh…” She barely gets a word out as her pussy grinds against my face. I don’t mind, though. I’m smiling, sucking, and nipping at every piece of her. She tastes just as she smells, and I pull my face away to remove my own clothes. “I’m going to fuck that tight pussy now, piccolo.” A sigh leaves her mouth as I blanket her body with mine. I stare into her hooded eyes. Parting her thighs, I position myself at her entrance. My cock is stiff with need. Dipping a finger inside of her, I take the wetness from within and rub it onto my cock. I stroke myself hard, a hiss leaving my mouth as I press into her folds. “This is what you do to me. You make me a crazed monster…” I murmur against her flesh. My teeth bite down on her shoulder as I push into her ever so slowly. She is tighter than anything I have ever felt. A cry escapes her lips as I release my hold on her shoulder and look into her eyes. Being a virgin, I know she is overwhelmed with emotion and pleasurable pain, so I sit still for a moment before pushing into her all the way. No words need to be said. I plan on spelling everything out plainly and simply. My strokes and bites will be my words. “Your pussy is mine…” I croon as I wait for her to adjust to my presence inside her. It is all mine for the taking. I’m going to pound her so hard…“Yes, yours,” she implores, her eyes rolling into the back of her head as I pull out and slam back into her. I grab her ass and tilt her hip up to give me better access. My muscles clench, and I know I’m going to tear her apart if I don’t slow down. “You get what I give.” I don’t sound like myself as I pull out and push back into her. My cock is swelling. I feel my balls squeezing, wanting to release even though we have hardly begun. Sweat covers our bodies as I stare at her, nose to nose. 

Final Thoughts on INDEBTED by J.L. Beck & C Hallman
