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?

The bad boy is going to have his happy ending - FINALLY!

I was excited to read this story, and I must say, I wasn't disappointed. S.L. Scott gave me one heck of an emotional ride, complete with all the ups and downs. I haven't met a couple who seemed to be perfect for each other but couldn't find the right time to be together.

To say they have baggage would have been an understatement - both of them were overloaded. Rochelle was still mourning over the loss of Cory, and Dex? He was feeling guilty, and lost. It didn't take just days for them - it took weeks, months, years - they were okay, then fate would intervene and drive them apart.

They have more than just second chances. True, you cannot rush true love. What they had? It may have started out wrong, perhaps out of guilt and loneliness especially on Rochelle's part. But Dex? It was almost two-decades in the making. They try to rush it, to play it cool - but nothing seemed to work. I was wondering if the two of them would ever end up together, with everything conspiring against them...

But fate will always find a way to bring two people who are meant to be back into each other's arms - it may take awhile, both might have to cross mountains and swim rivers, or even get lost along the way, some may even found another to love... but if you are meant to be, you will find your way back home.

It was a great read, I couldn't stop reading. S.L. Scott made sure I stick to the book, second guessing if the ending would the ending be. Highly addicting, completely emotional, one heck of a love story - this was an emotional journey that you wouldn't want to miss. Because when the long ride is over, all the bumps along the way is worth the destination.


to summarize my rants...

“Here’s the truth of the matter. If we do this... again, there’s no going back to square one tomorrow. Not for me. I won’t be able to act like I don’t care about you, like I haven’t thought about you every day since we were together last. So it’s easier to stop now than later.”

With a discouraged sigh, I say, “You’re stronger than me, Dex.”

“No, I just know my greatest weakness is the woman beneath me right now.” He rolls over sighing in a way that shows frustration has set in. Turning his head to me, he says, “I want to fuck you so bad, but I also want to do all that making love stuff too. And if we do that, I can’t pretend it didn’t happen.” He sits up and walks to the other side of the room, leaning his back against the wall.

I prop myself up on my elbows, caught by the heaviness of the emotions I’m suddenly feeling for him.

“Go to sleep tonight. Fly home tomorrow.” He walks into the shadow of the entryway. “I’ll see you in a few weeks.”

I hear the door open as I fall back on the bed, my own sexual frustration setting in.

But just when I hear the door close, the weight of his body lands on top of me and he kisses me hard. Surprised, my eyes fly open, but then I go for it just like him and kiss him back with just as much passion. He pushes off of me again and stands between my legs. “I make very few promises in life, but this one I can make to you. Rochelle Floros, I’m coming for you. It’s our time, so get ready for me.” He turns abruptly and leaves me sitting there stunned... and tingly.
