The Rebel's Redemption- Book 2 in the Wounded Hearts Series
An Action-Adventure Romance
Annie Campbell has made a good life for her young son in the mountain town of Tidal Falls. She's dating the sheriff, owns a successful business, and has the support of the community.
So why isn't it quite enough?
Jared Martin left Tidal Falls a hotheaded youth. Eight years in the military has turned him into a cynical, disillusioned man.
Then he returns home and finds out he's a father.
When an old enemy follows and causes mayhem in the small town, can Jared overcome the odds to protect the woman he's always loved and the child he never knew?
Or will it be too late for a second chance?
Format: Kindle Edition
Second chances and forgiveness are two main themes to the books I have read over the last few weeks. We all need forgiveness but what happens when the one person you love more than life itself walks out of your life and you hear nothing from them for eight years? Then one day, that person returns.This is exactly the premise of The Rebel’s Redemption. Annie loved Jared and thought they would be together forever. He ran off to join the Navy Seals and Annie was left wondering what happened. Eight years later, he returns and she has to come to grips with her aching heart.
Jared is a tortured soul, mired with regret, and the last thing he needed was to reignite his relationship with Annie. But circumstances have changed and he must come to grips with the cold hard truth.
An enemy of Jared’s come to town, seeking revenge and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly, Annie and Jared must work together to defeat this dangerous enemy. Can they do it before it’s too late?
I’m a sucker for romantic suspense and this book doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read in a long time. The author grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the final page. The action is pulse-pounding and I read it in one sitting. The relationship between Annie and Jared wasn’t choppy, like I have seen in other books. Sure, there is betrayal and hurt feelings but the author created such energy between Annie and Jared that it flowed really well.
What sealed the deal for me on giving it a five star rating was the complexity of the characters. Each character had its own back-story and they felt so real to me. I caught myself nodding along whenever the dialogue made logical sense. I was completely absorbed in the story and that’s rare for me as a reader these days.
This is book two in a series but it also reads as a stand-alone. I, myself, am going to read book one and wait patiently as the author writes book three.
If you love a good story and want to be taken away on a suspenseful journey, pick up this book immediately!
Ugh, do I have to pick just one? There are so many that I love! Okay okay, if I had to pick just one I’d pick Annie. Annie is one strong woman and in the end she follows her heart to save those she loves. I love her insecurities and how real she is. She and I would be best friends for sure.
