wrong and dumb in so many ways....

He's on revenge mode because of some comments that happened years ago. He will resort to killing. Wow! Talk about a mountain out of a molehill. His over-reactive behavior is repulsive. He could have had her in a 100 different ways. Like... ask her out for a date... duh!! After all, she liked him too. Kidnapping, imprisoning and marring is the best he could do???

He captures her with the threat to kill her father. She has to comply to his sexual demands. So much for romance.

Father sells his daughter. Brother is okay with this. So much for family love.

She can escape but is wishy washy. Oh, I wanted to slap this woman! If only I could.
Her internal dialog is that of a bimbo. This is the worst part of the book.

This is a duet narration. A bit different from what I'm used to. Regardless, the narration is done well.

Sure it ends with a cliffhanger. I'll pass on the next book. I think I'm okay with that because these two aren't going to get any smarter.

Loved this book

Loved Easton & Charlotte. Danger, twisted, action, dark, disturbing, steamy, sexy and so good. I didn’t want to stop listening to this book because it was just that amazing. Be aware there is a cliffhanger.
Once again Kai & Wen knocked it out of the park with their amazing narration of this book.

An alpha couple trying to best the other

This is my first Clarissa Wild book and I think it's pretty good. Be warned, some details may be triggers. I personally don't find it too disturbing, but if you're sensitive towards captor/captive, "selling" a daughter, etc., then please go on to another book.

The couple met years before and their initial meeting was a cute flirtation, but was ruined by Charlotte's high-brow father. He seems to like caging his fiery daughter at any chance he can get so he could use her to his advantage for the company. When Easton and Charlotte meet several times over the years, Easton was constantly reminded of how he's not of the privileged society and her reluctance to defend him added to his wounds.

In her mind, Charlotte was trying to protect herself as best as she could until she was able to break away from her father, even if it meant ignoring the one guy who seemed to not suffocate her. He interpreted her coldness as a spoiled rich princess and the only way he thinks he can hurt Charlotte's father is by "buying" her. He also hopes to punish Charlotte as well for not defending him in the previous encounters.

Easton's obsession to become richer than Charlotte's father made him very successful and he never forgot about the woman who hurt him. When he saw the opportunity, he made the offer to her father: die or give Charlotte to him. During their time together, Charlotte becomes irritable and desperate to get out of this new cage she's been confined to. Easton wants to break her and make her his mind and soul, however she fights it at every turn. He wants to give her the love and care she didn't get growing up in his own morbid way, but in order to do that, she needs to let go of her hurt caused by family.

There's an obvious attraction between them and Charlotte craves to be freed and be held at the same time. Her temper is as hot as her alpha husband; she won't back down even if he threatens her.

I applaud the narrators for this book. They voiced their main characters and supporting characters very well and distinctly. Wen Ross continues to impress me with his accents. I've heard him in The Bravta's Baby with his Russian accent and it's believable (to me, at least). He does sound like a younger version of Patrick Warburton or the guys from the Old Spice commercials, so I couldn't take Easton seriously. lol Kai Kennicott was pretty good and I liked how I could tell which character she was voicing. At times, she did sound like the actresses in the black-and-white romance dramas who overact their emotions, but it overall wasn't bad.

Be warned (again), this does end on a cliffhanger.

I don't think I'll be listening to the next book only because the feeling to move onto the next one and the anticipation of what's to come next was missing for me. Maybe I'll just read it if it comes out on Kindle. Overall, good job, Clarissa Wild!

Also, this is a duet narration like Renea Mason's books. :-) LOVE THESE KIND OF AUDIOBOOKS. It makes the stories more believable.

Total ten. Great story and great audio.

The story was good. I love when the heroine does not cave by chapter 3. The narrators were great. It made listening to this a wonderful experience. Looking for more they have done now.

Reviewed by Fantasy Land Blog

The first thing I have to say about A Debt Owed is that I finally got what I always wanted. The narrators switching off back and forth in the chapters! I have wanted a book to do that for so long that it makes the book seamless!

Kai and Wen are flawless in A Debt Owed. I read the book when it first came out and I don't ever have a voice in my head when I read books but these two do it great. Kai brings Charlotte to life with the innocence you expect when Easton (Wen) comes back into her life after years. But when Charlotte needs to fight and regain the strength to fight off Easton's plan Kai brings that out when needed.

I couldn't stop listening to this audio and was happy to hear it.

I couldn’t get through half an hour

The performance is terrible. I stopped listening after fifteen minutes because I couldn’t take anymore. Buyer beware.

Interesting ......<br /><br />

It's an interesting plot. Forced marriage without any mafia themes.

They liked each other as kids but he wasnt good enough for her dad. But now he paid her father's debt for her hand in n marriage and her dad had no problem with it.

Her life as she knew it was over. Easton's dad died because of her dad and he wants to ruin her dad through her love for him .......but it ends in a cliffhanger before that can happen.

Wow!!!

Wow!!! What a dark twisted book. Easton has worked his way up in life to be where he is at today. Charlotte's dad owes a debt to Easton & they decide that Charlotte will be the way to pay the debt back. Charlotte's whole world is about to change with Easton. This is definitely an enemies to lovers book. I can't wait to see where the next book takes them. Clarissa Wild writes a very good & unique story that hooked me from the start. Now add Kai Kennicott & Wen Ross for narration & now you have an smoking hot audiobook. They bring the book to life. You can chemistry that is portrayed throughout the story. I can't wait to listen to the next book. Loved it!
