The Debt Collector was one part darkness, one part suspense, ten parts extreme heat! Yowza! I mean, you kind of could guess that from the cover. But basically, there’s Tessa, who gets herself in a sticky situation and has to work something out with Locke, who can be hard to read. Is he good? Can she trust him? Then there’s his friend. Oh and they are all so very friendly. I enjoyed this and appreciated how Tessa didn’t back down when it came to demanding to be treated well.
The Debt Collector was a great 5 star read and part of the Underground Bad Boys Romance.
Tessa is an Emergency room doctor who also helps girls that come in and are clearly involved in slavery. One evening she meets a mysterious man that she is completely drawn to, but she doesn’t learn his real name before he leaves.
Circumstances and fate bring these two back together again when Tessa is taken by the slave ring men. Locke is shocked to see the woman he met at the hospital. Determined to help her he makes a deal to buy her. Once he has Tessa safely in his home, he suggests a deal that will keep her safe.
Will Tessa be able to keep her heart out of it? What will happen if she discovers Locke’s secrets?
All I can say is WOW, what a heck of a read. The secondary characters were great, I have to say my favorite was Gage, Locke’s friend who is a hot as heck cage fighter. Tessa was a strong and determined woman who fights for what she believes in. If you’re looking for a great thrilling read with some hot and steamy moments, this is the book for you.
Ohhhhh India Kells this corrupted my mind so good! I absolutely had to one-click this novel like I do with just about every India Kells novels. This one was a tad more steamy than I am used to seeing from her and I loved it, every wanton moment. Now keeping in mind that I have mentioned this is a bit of a steamy read be smart and don’t pick it up if that isn’t your thing, although I do think you would be missing out on quite the read, especially if you are a fan of India Kells of novels.
There is a lot going on in this book, but it is done flawlessly and not too overwhelming, I was able to read it in one sitting. Tessa finds herself in a slave ring. Everyone’s worst nightmare. The man who saves her, Locke has a proposal, one that is something she would never have expected to find herself involved in either. Oh and then there is Locke’s best friend Gage. These three have some intricate personalities that work together a lot like poetry. Which for me is what makes a novel like this work so well. For all the other juicy details run and one-click right now.
The Debt Collector is part of The Underground Bad Boys series. It can be read as a standalone. There is one part of the story involving Gage that is left open, probably to be explored further in another book.
I read this book in just a few hours because it kept me hooked so I couldn’t put it down. The interactions between Locke and Gage…wow…I thought my Kindle was going to catch fire, lol! Definitely not a book for anyone under the age of 18.
The author has done a wonderful job of creating complex characters with interesting personal histories. Although I was actually more entertained by the dynamic between Locke and Gage, the Tessa character definitely bridged between them well by adding a compassionate strength to offset their physical presence.
Hot! Hot! Hot!
