Review: Love and Always (A Pound of Flesh #1.5) by Sophie Jackson


Love and Always (A Pound of Flesh #1.5) by Sophie Jackson



Orange Is the New Black meets Jennifer Probst’s New York Times bestselling Marriage to a Billionaire trilogy, in this e-novella of love and redemption in the sensational A Pound of Flesh series.

When prison tutor Kat Lane met arrogant inmate Wesley Carter in A Pound of Flesh, it was hate at first sight. Carter’s quick wit and reputation for being as dangerous as he was handsome kept her at a distance. But as they grew to know each other as teacher and student in the New York prison, Kat found there was much more to Carter than she thought.

In Love and Always, Kat and Carter’s story continues as they share the news of their engagement—which doesn’t go over well with Kat’s mother. On top of it all, Carter has a new role as CEO of WCS Communications, which adds more pressure to his new life outside prison. Trying to juggle family, a billion dollar business, and Carter’s best friend Max’s rehab stint doesn’t leave much time for the happy couple to enjoy each other. How will Kat and Carter handle the pressures of marriage, family, and work—and keep the passion alive through it all?


4 out of 5 stars

This was such a great addition to the series. Kat and Carter are fantastic characters and I adore them together.

There were some fun, playful elements in this as well as some heartfelt and loving moments. I love Kat and Carter’s chemistry and connection, they just make me happy. I loved seeing where they were at now and where their relationship is going. There was also a lot of heat mixed in as well, this novella packed a punch! I thought it all had a great balance.

Really good flow throughout, nice development, a little bit of tension but no major drama. It was wonderful catching up with other characters and after reading this, I am even more anxious for Max's story. I love the friendship and bond that he and Carter share and I can’t wait to get more of it.

This was definitely a fun read, just the right mix of hot and sweet!
