Orange Is the New Black meets Jennifer Probst’s New York Timesbestselling 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?
I made no secret of how much I adored Pound of Flesh, so when I saw that Sophie was releasing this novella as an accompaniment to the series, I pre ordered that bad boy as fast as my fingers would click. Then, 1st August arrives and it lands on my kindle, but I couldn’t read it straight away. When I did eventually got round to it, I was sucked straight back into the world of Kat and Carter.
I have to admit, it didn’t hold my attention as much as Pound of Flesh did because, while it was amazing to spend more time with these characters, it felt as if it were an extension. The story, revolving around a second Christmas together – this time in their own home – would not have been out of place at the end of the original book. It felt a bit like an extended epilogue, rather than something new, which is fine.
Having said that, it’s Carter and his Peaches. I’d read about them having breakfast. I love these characters and the journey they have travelled together to get to where they are in this novella.
I’m waiting, rather impatiently, for Max’s story because although we get to know him and a little about his back story in Pound of Flesh, and he appears briefly in Love and Always, I really want to know more about him. So, hup to Jackson!!
