my review -
This review is so long overdue!
Opposite attracts. Lauren and Josh had proved it once again. While Josh is the ultimate player who sleeps around different girls daily, Lauren is a saint – she’s a diligent student, a great athlete and a loyal girlfriend.
But the moment she was cheated on by her douche of an ex-boyfriend, she decided to live a little.
They go to the same school, with the same set of friends, but never really saw each other until that party – and the attraction was just intense at first sight. Josh wanted to know her, but he had been forewarned. So did Lauren, she received a whole lot of warning from her concerned girlfriend. Did both of them listen? Nuh-uh.
Josh had been through a lot at a young age. He tries to shield himself from pain, puts up a façade so realistic you can almost believe it’s the real him, until you get him to put down his barriers. Until he met Lauren – he couldn’t explain the connection he has with her. All he knew, that after that night she ruined him for other girls. I would have loved this guy if he doesn’t walks out a lot. I know girls like to throw that tantrum – but guys? Rarely. So imagine my surprise when he storms out during tough times, good thing his friends had more sense and urge him to stay.
As for Lauren – she had a perfect life, until all of a sudden, one block comes down right after the other. And before she knew it – her pitching arm was injured and she suddenly couldn’t do the thing that brought joy in her life, playing in the field. All of a sudden, she closed off – and did something that I didn’t really expect of her. For an intelligent girl, it was a very stupid move. Really stupid. Arghhhhh!!!!
What did Josh do – he walks out again. Only this time, I think he had a valid excuse. He had been through this sh*t in his whole life, and he couldn’t imagine going through it again. He had the reason to be mad, and to be angry. But what I didn’t like was for him to just give up like that on her – to lose faith in her. Lauren was lucky enough to be surrounded by friends who love her and never left her side despite all the circumstances. Now – she just have to win him back, if he’ll have her.
Redemption is a story of two broken people who run into each other in their bleakest days, and unexpectedly fell in love with each other. But their HEA wasn’t just a walk in the beach, they needed to fight all the demons, and their past that’s surrounding them before they ever make it. Nevertheless, the ending was worth all the heartache.
