Sophie Jackson’s award-winning Pound of Flesh novels reignite “that feeling of sneaking risqué books under the bedcovers with a flashlight” (RT Book Reviews)! Join her millions of online fans with this irresistible enovella that takes the intimate relationship between a gutsy prison tutor and her sexy bad-boy student to the ultimate level.
When tutor Kat Lane met her brooding, dangerously tempting student Wesley Carter behind bars, she never dreamed of the day she would be excitedly planning for their wedding. It won’t be long before they’re man and wife, and neither Kat nor Carter can wait. But as they settle into the joyful haze of nearly-newlywed bliss, all their friends seem to be one step ahead. Everywhere they turn, couples are becoming parents, and the longing in Kat’s eyes worries Carter. What if she gets baby fever…and he’s not so sure? Carter’s childhood was rough, and his father was no example for how to be an upstanding man—or a good parent. Can Carter create a happy, safe, supportive home for his future children with Kat—the life he never had growing up? He had better figure it out soon…because Kat just told him she needs to take a pregnancy test.

Caro’s Review: 5 stars
“Fate and forever” is a novella featuring the MC’s from Jackson’s first novel, “A pound of flesh” Carter and Kat, as well as his friends Riley and Max. You should have read the main novel first, for “Fate and forever” is like an extended epilogue for this book.
I loved seeing Carter and Kat again, even when they struggled in their newly-wed bliss. We also got a new glimpse of Riley’s story, which will be next in this series in “A Measure of love”.
5 stars, recommended to all fans of “A pound of flesh”.
Angy’s Review: 5 stars
More of Carter & Kat and Max & Grace! YAY! And a little glimpse of Riley! YES PLEASE! I loved every word of this novella. It was funny, sexy, it had lots of drama! Oh. My. God! My poor babies! But it was all so awesome! As always, I enjoyed Sophie’s writing, her characters are getting better and better and she has a way to create new ones that I sure will love like crazy.
Despite this novella has POV from all the main characters of The Pound of Flesh Series, it’s mainly about Carter & Kat. They have their beautiful honeymoon and their marriage starts, but…. And here is where the drama begins. I won’t tell anything of what it happens because it’s too short to ruin with little details, but I assure you, it’s AMAZING.
I can’t wait to read A Measure of Love. I’m sure I will love Riley!
