Fighting Redemption is one of the most anticipated books of 2013. A story of a soldier leaving behind his one true love. A story of a young woman making a career for herself… with only a shadow of herself. A story of friendship, love and family. A story about war and sacrifices made. A story with a powerful and captivating plot twist that will leave readers panting wanting for more. This is Ryan Kendall and Finlay Tanner’s story.
“I’ll love you longer than the stars that live in the sky.”
Ryan and Finlay’s love story is not just the center of the whole book. And I love it like that. We were given a chance to see a glimpse of the lives of the supporting characters. For a standalone it’s actually a risky move because some may fall more in love with them that your lead characters thus resulting to a disappointed reader. But I think Fighting Redemption was so remarkably crafted for readers to lose interest.
This is one of those books that have a powerful prologue. You know that this book would rip your heart into shreds but you don’t care because you know it will be worth it. I alternated to laughing and crying like crazy. I swear this book defeats a roller coaster ride. One minute I’m rooting for them and the next I want to pound Ryan for being a douche. What I love most about this book is that every emotion is so damn powerful you could almost taste it. It’s like being mad suddenly becomes rage… it was all so magnified. The longing, hatred and love between our heroes and heroines is what makes this book perfect to me. It was so beautifully written you couldn’t help but invest so much to the characters.
