A Pound of Flesh (A Pound of Flesh #1) by Sophie Jackson

A Pound of Flesh (A Pound of Flesh #1)


Orange Is the New Black meets Jennifer Probst’s New York Times bestselling Marriage to a Billionaire trilogy, featuring a strong-minded prison tutor who discovers that her sexy bad-boy student is far more than he appears to be.

Haunted by nightmares of her father’s street murder fifteen years ago, Kat Lane decides to face her fears and uphold his legacy of helping others by teaching inmates at a New York prison. There she meets arrogant Wesley Carter, who’s as handsome as he is dangerous, as mysterious as he is quick-witted, and with a reputation that ensures people will keep their distance.

As teacher and student, Kat and Carter are forced to leave their animosities at the door and learn that one should never judge a book by its cover. As Carter’s barriers begin to crumble, Kat realizes there’s much more to her angry student than she thought, leaving them to face a new, perilous obstacle: their undeniable attraction to one another.

When Carter is released and Kat continues to tutor him on the outside, the obstacles mount. Can they fight the odds to make their relationship work? Will Kat’s family and friends ever accept her being with someone of his background? And will Kat’s discovery of Carter’s role on the night her father died force them apart forever...or unite them?


Meet the proverbial bad boy with the typical chip on his shoulder—Wesley James Carter, or JUST Carter—Inmate #08156, Arthur Kill Correctional Institution, NY. Then introduce yourself to his soulmate—Katherine Lane—Kat to her friends but to Carter she is his “Peaches”. She is THE someone who will become his saving grace for his present and future as he was hers in the past, for what seemed a lifetime ago What finally brought them together?? Kat’s last promise to her Dad, her pound of flesh. “We give back Katherine,” her father said the night he died She is the literature tutor for the institution that houses Carter.Their journey will not be a smooth ride. With the introduction of secondary characters & subplots along with the social barrier their story will be downright rocky at times. But always remember, all is NOT as it seems.Her pound of flesh will lead him to his. Her.“It was his most deeply desired obligation.His precious debt.His beloved pound of flesh.”
I loved Kat & Carter. She was his ying as he was her yang. They were each other’s strengths to offset their weaknesses. Kat was a wonderful heroine. I really enjoyed reading about how strong she was. A real spitfire, like her Nana Boo. She was a true to herself character. Carter, well he was just plain HOT. A guy that when you get to know you realize there is so much more than meets the eye. Kat saw through him and called him out on his “bull” more than once. She never tried to change him but instead showed him alternatives. For her debut novel Sophie hit it right out of the park. I loved this book. All of it, start to finish. Even the secondary characters, good or bad. They all had a purpose. The plot was believable and the flow of the book was right on. I can’t wait for the next in this series. This review was provided by guest reviewer, Corinne Regan Bridges. An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.
