The Redemption by S.L. Scott
Release Date: Nov 3
He was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.
Soulful, amber eyes
A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation
A body that beckoned for sin
Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years.
Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.
Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever?
Whitney’s Four Star Review
I have been looking forward to this since the day I finished The Resistance shortly after it’s release. I had very high expectations for this novel and while it fell a little short in some areas, I really did enjoy it.
Dex is the bad boy you still fall in love with and root for. His character is very flawed but at the same time, he is a wonderful man. Rochelle has suffered heart breaking loss after her long term boyfriend and the father of her children dies. Even a few years later, she struggles to get through each day and hasn’t really grieved properly. She has been so focused on her children and holding herself together, you know she will break down eventually.
These two are so back and forth over the majority of the book, parts of it start to read the same. And this was what kept me from giving it five stars. I would be reading and thinking… didn’t they just do this two chapters ago? However, there is enough fresh material to keep you interested and since I fell in love with the characters, I knew I’d be reading to the end to see if they got their HEA.
I won’t give any spoilers though! I definitely recommend reading this book if you enjoyed The Resistance. While The Redemption can serve as a stand alone, you will be best served reading it second.
