Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.
Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.
Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?
I was lucky enough to receive both of the books in this series at the same time. It begins with Vicious Cycle (see my review here) and continues with Redemption Road. I had a really hard time getting into Vicious Cycle, but I ended up loving it. I was happy that I had the sequel to jump right into.
If anything, I liked Redemption Road even more. Maybe it was because I was already accustomed to the violence, but I think it was because I really liked Rev. He’s just a nicer guy than the other men in the books. Make no mistake, Rev can be just as harsh and physical as the others when it’s needed. However, he is willing to look for an alternative to death and mayhem if possible.
Like the previous book, this one should come with trigger warnings. Horrible things happen to people, but it is not gratuitous. They are necessary to the plot, but it still doesn’t make it easy to read.
I finished Redemption Road in less than a day. It was that good. I’m giving it a solid four star review.
Book three, Last Mile, is due out May 3, 2016. I cannot wait!
This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
