His second chance may cost him his sweetest addiction …

The truth about NEVEAH’S cheating fiancée hit hard—but not as hard as her right hook to his jaw. After ridding herself of him she travels back home to Huntsville, Texas to her father and his boxing gym where she grew up. When she finds a beaten man in the woods beside her home, her entire life changes and things get—complicated.

Ex-con RAGE only wants two things—for the man that set him up to release his sister, and for him to burn in Hell where he belongs. After being released from prison, he heads straight to the man that put him there, only to be beaten and tossed in the woods for dead. When he’s found by the most beautiful girl he’s ever met, he knows he’ll have a chance to rescue his sister even though she doesn’t realize she needs saving.

Neveah and her father, nurse Rage back to heath, offer him a job at their gym and quickly find out that he’s amazing in the ring. Without them knowing who he is, he knows he’s been given a second chance to live his life. The only condition is that he has to stay away from Neveah, which is a promise he soon realizes is hard to keep. The feisty southern beauty normally gets what she wants, and Rage wants to give her everything.

With the truth lurking in the shadows, Rage must decide if his sweetest addiction is worth giving up his second chance.
My Thoughts

Wow! Redemption by Alla Kar was hot, fast-paced and all sorts of exciting! I can’t say that the novel was flawlessly written, but it definitely caught my attention and had me rooting for Rage and Neveah from the moment they met! These two characters were a perfect mix with their off-the-charts chemistry and fair share of obstacles.

Rage Cohen has one thing on his mind the moment he’s released from prison, and that is to save his younger sister from the clutches of the drug lord Dexter who was the reason he was imprisoned. When his rescue attempt lands him in a wooden area nearly beaten to death, he knows his breaths are numbered until an Angel crosses his path and saves him.

The last thing on Neveah’s mind is falling in love after being cheated on by her fiancé. When she leaves Phoenix, and heads back to Huntsville, Texas to work at her father’s boxing gym, she stumbles upon a handsome, injured stranger behind her home and knows immediately that a connection is inevitable. However, with Rage’s shady past and his promise to Nev’s father to stay away from his daughter, the odds are stacked against them from the very beginning.

First off, I enjoyed Rage and Nev’s story. Alla Kar has a way of drawing her readers into her novel with fast-paced action, likable characters and steady paced drama that never feels over the top. Rage and Neveah had a ton of chemistry between each other, and I enjoyed Rage’s alpha-male moments that were all well intended. He showed how much he cared for Nev and proved he was willing to sacrifice anything to keep her safe. 

The secondary characters, including Wes, Shelly, Chase and Dante were a perfect compliment the story. I could easily pick up a novel that was dedicated to these characters. 

Overall, Redemption is a perfect fix if you’re in the mood for an exciting novel that’s filled with erotic moments and perfectly matched characters.
