This is one of my top favorites of the year! It’s a story about “a strong-minded prison tutor who discovers that her sexy bad-boy student is far more than he appears to be D From the moment I h D From the moment I heard about this book, I knew I had to read it! That gorgeous cover and blurb called to me. I just knew this would be a story I’d adore and I was right because And, from the moment I started reading, I was captivated and completely drawn into the story.
Wesley James Carter had been in and out of jail since he was a kid, accumulating a rap sheet several pages long and a reputation as the prison bad boy. Now, at twenty-seven years old, he was doing time again but what few people knew was that he didn’t commit the crime he was jailed for.
Needless to say, his cocky, arrogant, reckless attitude made him the “poster boy for rebellious deviants” and that was how the world saw — and judged — him.
His tattoos and buzz cut and fuck-with-me-if-you-dare aura just solidifying his image. In reality though, there was so much more to this guy than met the eye Kat Lane was haunted by the memory of her father’s brutal murder by street thugs when she was just twelve years old.
She’d been there that night and were it not for a mysterious boy whose face she never saw who pulled her away from the scene and hid her, she would have met the same fate. Now, at twenty-five years old, she was facing her fears head on by tutoring inmates at a prison. And her newest student pouund none other than than Wesley Carter. He was, after all, just like the other men she taught. He was animalistic and, for that brief time, utterly uncaged.
But it soon became clear that poind classroom environment wouldn’t work for him and so began their one-on-one lessons They were drawn to each other fleshh a very deep level but with the strict non-fraternization policy of the prison in place, they had no choice but to hide their growing feelings for one another.
He swallowed hard and Kat stared at his Adams apple bobbing at the front of his throat. She shook her head free of the inappropriate thoughts entering it. Not least, the one where her tongue traveled the length of the black neck tattoo that was teasing her mercilessly. This was a deliciously slow build that teased the intensity of their connection along with the thrill of having to keep it a secret.
A Pound of Flesh
All the subtle but intense glances, the flirtatious banter, and even just a brush of the hand became supercharged with this sizzling chemistry that made my heart race! It was an intoxicating mix of danger, desire, and forbidden temptation. The silent question that hung between them was whether he had the strength to remember that or, rules be damned, cross it anyway.
His past was heart breaking but I am so strongly drawn to broken, tortured heroes. I fall for them every time and I certainly fell hard for him. And let me just say I will never look at an Oreo the same way again! They were still bound by their working relationship, but granted more freedoms. It allowed them more room to be playful and flirtatious even though they still had to keep them true feelings hidden.
I was smiling, laughing, swooooooooning. My heart was fluttering as I hung off of every word I read. I saw a spider. I don’t know how to describe it better. There are good stories, and there are well written stories, but the best ones just have this extra spark to them that, for me, is that almost magical quality that turns them into top favorite reads.
The sexual tension between Carter and Kat just rolled off the page!! He tilted his head, his mouth a luscious whisper across the edge of hers.
And not only did they have to keep their relationship hidden because of her work, they also faced extreme judgment on all sides — her family just saw Carter as a worthless criminal. They couldn’t see past his label. It didn’t matter how he felt about Kat, or what kind of person he actually was, it didn’t even matter how much money he had, all they saw was his criminal past.
But I loved that Kat looked right past his labels and just saw him. I loved the way she stood up for what she felt and I loved the way he didn’t let people walk all over him just because he went to prison. I loved the message that not every criminal is a bad man.

And not every free person deserves their freedom. Carter let his nose touch the tip of hers. Before he could argue, Kat pressed on. It had a gorgeous od unique!! There was no ‘stupid drama’ at all. Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes, but even their mistakes were understandable and realistic. To be completely blunt, I think it’s opund sign of a very strong author when they’re able to write a page book without a single thing in it that makes my eyes roll, lol.
I felt this story!
The emotions, the romance, the pure raw sexiness, the desire, the complications of their position, the forbidden nature of their love, the depth of their feelings for each other, I felt it all.
I want you so fucking much. Back when Twilight was first released, it inspired a lot of authors who weren’t already authors to begin writing. They just completely changed everything else about them. Those developed over time into what could be a full book or series. Many of those were so popular and unique that they’ve now become independently or traditionally published novels of course, with now changed names.
The books that resulted from these fanfictions are a HUGE part of what started the reading craze that brought so many readers back into reading. I personally love them! And A Pound Of Flesh is absolutely one of my new top favorites! This can easily be read as standalone.
It has a resolved ending, with a gorgeous epilogue, so no cliffhanger! There will be a follow-up novella later in the year though for readers who want ‘more’ and the next book in the series will be about Carter’s best friend Max, so a totally different couple. But you don’t have to wait to read this. A Pound Of Flesh is essentially a complete story, or standalone. And one more time because a lot of you have askedhe’s 27 and she’s There’s nothing taboo about their relationship, it’s only forbidden because of her work.
There is no cheating and no cliffhanger. It was perfect to me. The thrill of the forbidden romance kept my heart racing the whole way through. I could not stop reading! If you love sexy bad boy heroes and unique love stories that’ll make you swoon, you have to read this and meet Wes Carter!
Can be a standalone. View all 39 comments. I wish I could’ve rated this book with more stars. We shouldn’t label it with something simple.
