Redemption is a second chance story about life. While this is a book that follows two characters from Sharp’s previous book, Reputation, it can be read as a complete standalone. Ash and Taylor are pulled from that prior world and set in another town, Carmel Cove, which is the backset to where their healing begins.
Ashton has always taken care of others to the point that it became a detriment of himself. To fill the void of what was missing in his life he began filling the empty hole with alcohol. A functioning alcoholic during the day and a blackout drunk at night. His life was deteriorating before him until Taylor stepped in and saved him. Unfortunately, he doesn’t even remember the night his angel started his way towards redemption.
Taylor grew up in a very religious family, so showing up pregnant would not have gone well when she was still single. Instead she went to the one place or person she felt would understand. However, Ash had disappeared five months ago and she wasn’t exactly sure he wanted to be found and she also wasn’t sure he’d like the news she had to deliver.
Ash was rebuilding his life, sober, for the first time in a very long time. He was also living his life for himself, but when Taylor shows up at his doorstep, pregnant, everything changes.
