Book Review: Redemption by Laura Lee

USA Today Bestselling author, Laura Lee, brings you a standalone story about love, loss, and second chances, set in Corinne Michaels' Salvation Society world.

I fell in love with Beckett Armstrong before either one of us knew what that meant. He was my first kiss. My first love.

My entire world.

We promised each other forever, and we meant it wholeheartedly. But unfortunately, when tragedy struck, love wasn’t nearly enough to save us.

Little did we know... it would only get worse from there.

Twelve years later, Beckett and I wear our scars like finely crafted armor. We’ve been in survival mode for so long, we’ve forgotten how to live. After everything we’ve endured, can we move beyond the pain to forge a future together?

Or are we destined to repeat the mistakes of our past?

*REDEMPTION contains graphic scenes that some readers may find triggering.

If you’re looking for a second chance romance that hurts until all the right pieces fall into all the places, then this is the exact book for you.

Childhood best friends, that’s actually love at first sight. It’s a complete fairytale, whirlwind romance, dream come true, until tragedy strikes, and everything just crumbles. Our heroine, and our hero, are forced to pick up the pieces from where they lay, and try to forge new paths for themselves, but that leads to more heartache, and pain, and disaster.

This story bring about second chances. It questions whether you can truly go home again. Can the past be rewritten, forgotten, or moved past?

I loved these characters. They hurt, they loved, and they gave it as much as they could take it. The back and forth was amazing. The angst was intense, and we all know what a sucker I am. For that angst. Overall, this story is sweet, and romantic, and heartwarming in ways that you never knew you needed.

It’s also refresh to see a strong female lead facing such hard emotional moments that should break her, but doesn’t. It’s empowering to read as she pulls herself through to the end, and possibly find her way back to the happily ever after that she truly deserved all along.

This redemption story is worth way more than five stars.
