ARC Review: Redemption Road by Katie Ashley


5 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

I can't get enough of this author. This series is a hit and I wont be soon forgetting it. The perfect blend of sexy and suspense.

Sometimes you read a book that just hits home especially hard. This is one of those. My heart broke over and over again while reading. For the moment I started this novel I couldn't put it down. I know I say that a lot, and it is true, but especially so with this novel. I had to get to the end. I needed my conclusion and my happy. I needed to know where everything was going. This novel has you on your toes for sure. I found myself gripping my e-reader just a little tighter than normal while reading some parts and cringing at others. This novel is so full of raw and true emotion that it will move you to the core whether you want it to or not. Don't get me wrong, we are talking about Rev, so it does have its light moments and there are some parts that had me in down right stitches, but overall it was an emotional rollercoaster. After Annabel is rescued by Rev and the guys, things are bound to get worse before they get better. She has a road of healing ahead of her and she plans to do it with the man who saved her. Good thing he has no qualms about this. Once we are back at the club with out newest addition, all our favorite characters from book one come out of the woodwork. I loved that they were such a big part of the novel without stealing away from this plot. It felt like the perfect balance. This characters gives you a bit of whiplash, but in a good way. The characters react in a way that feel completely natural. Instead of the hot and sexy romance from the start that most MC books have, this story starts with healing and things take a relatable course of action. That is not to say that the characters agreed. One minute they were content, and the next Annabel was making one decision while Rev was making another. Then they were doubting themselves and thinking they should be behaving one way because that is what society says. See? whiplash.I know that sounds weird, but with the context of the story being what it is, I was very glad that the author had it flow the way that it did. It was the perfect pace. GAH! I don't even know what else to say without giving things away. This was a novel about healing and as the title states, redemption. Healing from physical hurt as much as mental scarring. Each event creates ripples in life and this novel rides the ripples. Get lost in this series again, you wont regret it.
