My opinion

I read the back of the book which says ‘For the fans of Orange is the new black’ and knew I had to read it. From the beginning it reminded me of a more rough Colleen Hoover book. I fell into the book and didn’t want to let go until I’d finished it. Carter is that bad boy whom every women thinks they can change him. The motor bikes and jail time included, this guy is worse than bad. But it turns out to be a little bit more different than you think.

You end up hoping that Kat and Carter end up together at the end of the book and that all will end well. And if that’s the case, well, you have to read the book to find out. If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover, I’m sure you’re going to love ‘A pound of flesh’. This is a tad more grown up, the sex scenes made me blush and the love between Kat and Carter made me swoon.

‘A pound of flesh’ is a wonderful book, which is also a bit mean because you can cancel your plans when you start this book, because I’m sure you won’t be able to put it down until you’ve finished it.


It reads like a rollercoaster, because you’ll get sucked into the book. A smile, a tear and blush on your cheeks, it’s all in ‘A pound of flesh’. At the end you feel like Kat and Carter are your friends and you’ll want to read the book again.
