Press Reviews

  • <i>Romantic Times</i>
    Entirely heartfelt, hot and should be the very next book on your TBR list - 4 stars
  • <i>Holly's Red Hot Reviews</i>
    This book truly was outstanding and I can't express just how much I loved reading it. It's the kind of book that I felt in my chest and made me angry when life got in the way of my reading. I was thinking about Kat and Carter whenever the cruel world required me to put it down. The writing was beautiful and poetic; Jackson made me feel every single feeling and emotion. A Pound of Flesh is a breathtakingly beautiful story about conquering your fears, finding love, redeeming oneself, and reminds us all to never judge a book by its cover
  • <i>Book Bitch Reviews</i>
    Their relationship was intense, drama filled and certainly filled with sex. But I couldn't have loved them more if I tried. It reminded me of Travis and Abby's relationship from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and it certainly holds the appeal of Fifty Shades of Grey fans. This may be the book of the year for me, and I cannot wait to get my hands on An Ounce of Hope
  • <i>Totally Booked</i>
    The romantic telling of this story that held us captive. The reading of literature and poetry woven throughout was mesmerising as were the many memorable moments in this story of fate, hope, redemption and second chances. A Pound of Flesh is a book we'd definitely recommend
  • <i>Hopeless Romantics</i>
    Wow!! I loved, loved, loved every single thing about this book. If you are a fan of forbidden love stories, you are going to love this one... Sophie Jackson has incorporated everything I love into this delicious story. It is a must read
  • Tara Sue Me, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of the Submissive Series

    [Sophie] writes the type of stories today's reader wants: beautifully created characters filled with emotion, and a storyline that sticks with you long after you turn the last page
  • J. M. Darhower

    A Pound of Flesh is an intriguing tale of acceptance, and understanding, and finding love in unexpected circumstances. What sets it apart from others is the way Sophie weaves storylines to build suspense before everything ultimately comes together, leaving the reader guessing and gasping until the very end
  • <i>Lancashire Evening Post</i>
    Star-crossed lovers Wes Carter and Kat Lane share a passion that will sweep you off your feet...what makes A Pound of Flesh stand out from the rest is Jackson's powerful, elegant storytelling and a love affair so hot that you could get your fingers burned turning the pages... Jackson plays a blinder in this stunning debut, creating a vivid, seductive story that tingles with emotionally-charged tension, weaves in some cleverly worked literary parallels and rounds off with a suitably satisfying surprise in the tail. As Shakespeare so beautifully put it... 'This is the very ecstasy of love'.
