Through every drop of blood I spilled, I lost a piece of my soul. I’ve sacrificed seven long years and the woman of my life for the Family. With prison behind me, I’m finally taking the reins of my destiny. I won’t allow the choices of my past to define my future. But I’m not done fighting—not yet.
Eve is still out there.
I will stop at nothing to get her back.
After having my heart torn out by the son of the biggest crime family in New York, I was forced to start over in California. With three thousand miles between me and my past, life is finally set on cruise control. I’m a lawyer at one of the best law firms in the country, I own my apartment, and I even have a doting boyfriend by my side.
As for love?
It’s not worth the fight.
*Redemption (Vincent and Eve Book 3) is the final book in the Vincent and Eve trilogy. You must read Rising (Vincent and Eve Book 1) and Reckoning (Vincent and Eve Book 2) in order to enjoy the conclusion of this heart-stopping romance.
Whoa! Talk about an amazing conclusion to a great series! We get all the action and all the romance as Vincent & Eve get their second chance at love.
This book picks up 6 years after the end of Book 2 as Vincent is being released from his prison sentence. Vincent is a man on a mission. He has goals to open his casino, extricate himself from “the family” and of course reunite with Eve. Vincent!!! Excuse me while I fangirl a little. Talk about alpha male hotness in all his glory. This is the man you have no choice but to adore and he demands your respect. And let’s not forget just absolutely sexy as hell. Yes, daily prison workouts have made him bigger and bulkier and now marked with new battle scars from prison fights.
Now let me talk about Eve. In book 2 I didn’t like where the author took her character, I felt like she was weak when I wanted her to be strong. Well let me tell you, I want to go back and give a higher rating for book 2 because I completely understand why the author took Eve in that direction. In this book Eve is now a successful, confident lawyer. She has come a long way from the girl she was in the Blue Houses projects and now I am able to not only appreciate her professional accomplishments but also her growth into a self assured woman. There are even parts where Eve goes all bad ass to protect her man and the ending of this book left me speechless! How dare I call this woman weak. My profuse apologies Jessica Ruben!
The chemistry Vincent & Eve had from Book 1 is still very much alive and on fire. Their connection was palpable on a physical as well as emotional level. The intensity of their love was felt throughout this whole book and when they reconnected after so many years, it was just explosive.
We get quite a suspenseful read as Vincent’s father does not take his leaving “the family” very well and there are some angsty, edge of your seat scenes. Hold on to your seat for a wild ride that will captivate you from beginning to end.
I loved taking this journey with Vincent & Eve. The sweetness and innocence of their young love blossomed into a once in a lifetime soul crushing love that withstood the test of time and seemingly insurmountable struggles.
