The Debt by Karina Halle
Review: From the first moment that I started reading about Jessica I was hooked. The first ten pages was liking trying to get out of quicksand and failing. I was stuck in this book with these characters, and I was perfectly happy to be there.
I really liked how you could see the changes in Jessica and Keir as they made their way through the book with you. The best part of this to me was watching them get better.
Every time I picked up this book to read I was always struck by the words that the characters said, they were just some really great quotes that really touched me. I feel like those quotes helped me out a bit while I was going through a tough time and that they could be applied to so much more too.
Although there were some topics they talk about very briefly, I felt like they need more then what they got and the ending was just a bit lack luster for me.
I was still waiting more at the end of this book, but not for the characters because their story was over. No, it was for the writing that will and does entrap you in it. Now it seems that I will have to check out all the Karina Halle books.
Favorite quote: I did not choose a favorite quote form this book, because there were so many great ones that really got to me. So I guess the quote I choose is the book.
Would I? Recommend this book for others? YES! Would I buy this book for anyone else? Yes. Would I get it in other formats? Hell yes! Would I check out what other books Karina Halle has written? I am already looking on Amazon!

Summary: Her life changed in an instant.
And he’s the only one who could have prevented it.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and The Lie comes a new standalone contemporary romance about those McGregor men.
Jessica Charles shouldn’t have even been in London when the unthinkable happened.
She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, having drinks with her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always.
But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica’s world changed forever.
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes.
That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again.
Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you’ve got pretty much the perfect Scotsman.
Except Keir is anything but perfect. He’s got a past he’s running away from and a guilty conscience he can’t seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her.
And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart.
He may have been a stranger to her.
But she’s never been a stranger to him.
