The emotional impact of each A Pound of Flesh story has deeply touched me, and though the fourth book is only a novella, the wide range of feelings depicted drew me into every compelling moment. While more attention is centered on Kat and Carter, there is also some insight into the current lives of Max plus Riley, letting me know what has been going on with these two interesting men. Sophie Jackson manages to always create intriguing circumstances for her characters, and FATE AND FOREVER delivers quite an emotional punch.
Kat Lane and Wesley Carter have just said “I do” to each other, and it is definitely a marriage between two individuals who seem totally opposite. They connected when she was his prison tutor, and now they are planning a rewarding future together. Their honeymoon was absolute perfection, where fantasies were fulfilled with lots of lusty sex. Then Kat brings up the subject of kids, and Carter does not know how he should respond to her comment.
Even though Carter loves Kat with all his heart, he frets over the idea of being a dad someday. His father was not a man that showed love, thus making him wonder how he will treat his own child. After returning from their honeymoon, everything looks to be great for the couple in all ways. But when Kat starts to act strangely, Carter worries if she might be keeping a secret from him.
There are a close-knit group of friends in the A Pound of Flesh series, and several fascinating facts are exposed about these likable people in the latest installment. What is learned about Riley is especially exciting, as I know additional details will be discovered in his upcoming story. Seeing more of Max and Grace is also wonderful.
Although every aspect of Kat and Carter’s marriage appears to be picture-perfect, all it takes is one innocent remark to turn his world upside down. From that moment on, anxiety about what will occur if they have children is never far from his mind. I really enjoyed how Sophie Jackson made every single instant in the story come across as truly realistic, from candid statements to genuine responses, making me feel as though I was actually watching lives unfold with honest reactions. I am very glad the author wrote the very informative FATE AND FOREVER, as it brought me up-to-date on several very important developments.
