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?
I don’t want to give away ANY of the story line because I feel you should read it and take what you can from going on the journey yourself. So I am going to keep this review brief and to the point.
Theres Rochelle who lost the ‘Love of her Life’ (Cory) - the father of her 2 boys and then there’s Dex the best friend of Cory all sharing the same group of friends and all struggling to come to terms with Cory’s unexpected death.
This is an amazing story where we get to watch two people who have known each other forever, really get to know each other and grow closer, discover problems and learn how to adapt in different situations. The support they have from their close network of friends is inspiring too and just goes to show you should never assume anything. The challenges that are thrown their way make you wanna shout ‘Oh! Come! On! Give them a break already!’ In my eyes if a reader feels so involved the author has written a pretty effective story.
Its heartbreaking at times but totally heart warming too. At some points I honestly felt like shouting at the characters to get their shhhh sorted and heads straight, so it definitely can be described as angsty too. There is romance a plenty which is just what I needed as my last few reads have been more on the dark side.
“My feelings for you are real. But for you, I’ll be your Peter Pan and you can pretend to be Wendy and we’ll stay in Neverland until you’re ready to see that Neverland doesn’t have to live only in our imaginations.” - With quotes like these I need say no more!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and award it a heart warming 4 Stars!
