Review – Redemption by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

Redemption (Standalone)
by Dr. Rebecca Sharp (Author)

This review is from: October 16, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

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.

Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Holiday Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le
Release Date: November 7, 2019

BLURB

This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.

I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.

Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life.
Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.
He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays.
A recluse of the worst kind.
Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul
… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.

He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and we run out of condoms.
I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him.
Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.
Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go.
He wants me home for the holidays
… and this is my last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.

One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent night.

Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

Cover Reveal – Embracing Fate by Ellie Masters

COVER REVEAL
Title: Embracing Fate
Series: Captive Hearts #2
Author: Ellie Masters
Genre: Dark Captive Romance
Cover Design: Ellie Masters
Release Date: October 30, 2019

BLURB

Who do you hire to save innocent women from monstrous men?

You find a man the monsters fear.

My job is straightforward. Buy a girl. Make her mine. Infiltrate a human-trafficking ring and take it down.

It doesn’t matter which unfortunate girl I choose. I’ll sacrifice one to save the many, or some such nonsense like that. Does that justify what I must do? Does that make me the hero?

No. It makes me a monstrous man, but I’ll do what needs to be done.

I don’t want to know her name. I’m not her savior. I’m not her knight in shining armor galloping in on a white horse to save the day. I’m her nightmare, a man who will break her so others may live.

There’s only one rule. Don’t fall for the girl.

But when have I ever followed rules?

Blurb:
Top three reasons why sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea…

1. She’s my fiercest rival.
2. She’s also my fiery ex.
3. We’re going up against each other in a stiff competition to win the hottest new client on the market.

And yet, I’d like to be up against the wall in a stiff competition to get her to call out my name.

Time to double down on my resistance to her tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, sexy-as-sin attitude. The same attitude I find irresistible.

That’s a big problem, because in this race to nab the client, I run into Haven in the hotel, on the beach, in the guest quarters late at night.

Hate sex would be a terrible idea.

Except, it’s the complete opposite, and now we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Trouble is, I’m not so sure it’s hate I’m feeling anymore.

And that’s the biggest reason sleeping with the enemy you’re falling for is a bad idea — my job literally depends on never letting her into my heart.
