Standalone Novel

The Debt Collector

I pay my debts, and I expect others to.

I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father's passing meant I would automatically take on dad's debts. I refused.

And I paid for that refusal.

So did my sister.

So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that's where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a "favor" when I arrived.

Another debt.

I paid for that one too.

I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her.

Besides, trouble is my middle name.

Kyla Hensley

I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn't care who gets rolled over in the process.

I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying "I'm sorry." The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad's wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.

I drink. I party. I meet guys.

But I wasn't always like that.

I've had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many way, and yet so the same.

She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun.

But there's a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you.

Which is when I met the Debt Collector.

It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear.

That's all it was supposed to be.

I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me.

And unbelievably right.

Standalone Novel.
No Cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debt paid in full! 1 March 2016
By Anniek Snowroses - Published on
Logan grew up in a rough neighborhood where violence and drugs were very common. When his father dies the people he owed money to come to collect. Logan refuses to pay for the mess his father left behind. He and his sister suffer for that decision big time, learning early on that all debts must be paid off.

All Logan lives for now is paying his sister's college fees. He wants to give her the best possible education so she can have a good job and therefore a good life. To get the money he needs he does what he knows best, he fights. He is very good at what he does, but his refusal to make a deal with the mafia results in getting little fights only. When he goes knockout during a fight with a long time rival Kyla is the one who makes sure he gets to a hospital and she stays with him.

Kyla had a life without worries about money. This doesn't mean she had it easy though. Her mother walked out on her and her father. Her father is too busy with his work and his trophy wife to really pay attention to Kayla. Her first boyfriend betrayed her and ever since Kayla has kept men out of her heart. She goes out with her best friend Vera and does what she wants with men. Ever since she has laid her eyes on Logan she can't get him out of her mind though. She is scared to death that he will hurt her or break her heart, but she can't ignore her feelings for him.

Debt touched my heart straight away. Logan is a real Alpha man, but he is also the kindest and most caring man Kayla has ever met. I don't think that there is a single woman out here who wouldn't fall in love with Logan instantly. He is gorgeous and when he finally opens his heart he gives everything. I loved Rachel Dunning's characters, they are perfect the way they are. She's made them come to life very well and I believed every single word she wrote. I couldn't read this story fast enough, because it made me so curious to find out more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! 1 February 2016
By Amber@WickedGoodReads - Published on
*I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Logan is known to most as the Debt Collector. He is a hard-core fighter - who makes money with his fists, all so his sister can live a better life than he has and can have an education. He grew up in the slums of London, with both of his parents killed before he turned 18 and his little sister being shipped off to a distant relative - he did the only thing he could to survive. Fight.
Kyla grew up in her own version of hell. What she wasnt lacking in money, she lacked in parental love and support. Her mother abandoned her as a baby, leaving nothing behind but one photograph with the words "im sorry" scribbled in French on the back. Her father raised her (if you can call it that), living in the same enormous house with his plastic wife and household staff. Kyla filled in the lack of parental love with a lot of shopping, partying and sex. During a break in college she and her crazy friend Vera go road tripping and wind up in a bar in Texas. This is where the story starts and she encounters Logan for the first time.
I was hooked on this book from the first few pages! Sometimes with a book it takes a few chapters to really get going and decide whether or not you are going to like the story and the characters. I had none of those feelings with Debt. Straight out of the gate, it was non-stop... I couldn't put it down. I was reading at work, my daughter's dance class, while the kids were in the tub.. you name it. It was great! The main characters Kyla and Logan were very well developed and had a depth to them that you certainly dont get in every book that you read. The story line was really complex and it flowed along at a nice pace. The editing was great, I didnt notice any errors - even for an ARC. I really have nothing but praise for Debt. It was an amazing read and I think anyone who likes sports stories, especially MMA or fighting books in particular, will LOVE it!
I give Debt by Rachel Dunning 5***** WickedGoodstars and will definitely be recommending it to my fellow readers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Debt 28 January 2016
By Lunaland Books - Published on
I received a copy of Debt by Rachel Dunning in exchange for an honest review.
Rachel Dunning is absolutely fantastic! I adored Debt and the beautiful romance it centred around.

Kyla was such a tragic heroine but i love how she grew throughout this book and how amazing her journey was. And our Hero the Debt Collector himself was a bad boy with a heart of gold. I fell in love with him the second he entered the bar. He is magnetic and an Alpha to his core. The obstacles this couple overcome are astonishing and I was completely enthralled with their story from begging to end.

Rachel Dunning's Writing style is so easy to read that I found myself devouring this book and I had finished this wonderful story far to quickly.
Debt is now on my recommendation list, especially to those of you who love a good New Adult romance.
3.0 out of 5 stars Never Owe A Debt You Cannot Repay 4 February 2016
By Jennifer Hines (Hines and Bigham's Literary Tryst) - Published on
**2.5 Fiery Hearts!**

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Logan had a rough start in life. He lost his father, then his mother, and then made it so his little sister was taken in by their aunt, leaving him to survive alone. The one thing he knew was that he didn’t want to survive how his father had, he had to do it on his own…no debts. He was doing it too, but then in walks Kyla and he can’t get her out of his head. He’d change, he’d do anything for her, and he barely knew her.

Kyla may have come from money, but she didn’t come from love. She never saw hearts and rainbows when looking at men, she just saw what was different about them, but she never got much further than looking. She wanted more, but without knowing what exactly that more entailed she’d been on the fence about men in general, especially after a few bad decisions in the dating department.

Their relationship is instant, sweet, and passionate. They each know what they want even if they’re afraid to ask for it, but they’ll each get it nonetheless.

Now for the downside. The writing style seemed unorganized. There were times when it was formatted like a novel and other times it seemed more like a screenplay with colons dictating speech and parentheses showing thought, action, and/or pronunciation. It is written in alternating first person and every time it switched the chapter headings would restart at 1.

I don’t see this too often in first person, but it felt like someone was telling me a story versus being pulled in and part of the story. It goes back and forth between present and past, almost every time a new character is introduced it goes back to how they knew that person and what happened that made them the person they are today. It was as if I knew everything about every character and at the same time felt no depth to any of them. The continuous detailed back stories did not add to the the characters, if anything it hurt the storyline and detached the characters from me.

My Favorite Quote:

“The thing I know is this:

I love this man. I love him irrevocably. I love him more than I’ve ever loved anyone.

And I know I will lose him.

I know it. More intuition.

But I love his very soul.”
4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Romance 13 February 2016
By Megan - Published on
Debt was a stand alone new adult novel involving a college girl and an underground fighter, which may sound familiar, but it was definitely unique. It was full of romance, and while it was steamy, it wasn’t just a short novel filled with various scenes. I felt like the story did a full arc and explored the characters pretty well.

The book explored both Kyla and Logan’s past and actually contained some closure with their childhood issues, which was definitely awesome. While Logan and Kyla had a very instant connection, their relationship didn’t feel rushed or anything. I’m so used to New Adult books being so rushed and fast and hot, so I was definitely impressed with how well the author did with creating multifaceted characters with backgrounds and issues, while also delivering great romance in the process.

I definitely enjoyed Debt and I will read more from the author in the future. It would be nice if the book became part of a series and explored some of the secondary characters like Tyler and Vera, but I’m glad that I got to see a little bit of Kyla’s friends and even Logan’s acquaintances.
