Redemption Road (Vicious Cycle #2) by Katie Ashley
Release Date – October 6, 2015
Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.
Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.
Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?
Redemption had a dual meaning within this novel. Annabel has kidnapped and needs saved from the brutal ways she’s suffered. Rev, President of the Hell Raiders MC, is on a mission to find the missing daughter of one of his club brother’s. Rev needs his own redemption and he struck his match in the red-headed woman he saves from the cartel. Annabel and Rev build the foundation of their relationship on friendship and trust. They have shared experiences of being assaulted and have formed a bond by being present while the other is suffering emotionally. This sharing of past pain gives Rev the courage he hasn’t had to open up to his family about it as well. Rev may be a burly biker, but he’s also sentimental and sweet. The tension lurks around every corner as you anticipate the cartel wanting revenge. Katie places you in the middle of this biker community where you feel the love and support of a family. Annabel takes to Willow immediately. The grief Annabel works through with her loss…well I was hoping the cleansing waters would heal her. I can’t wait for the next Hell Raisers MC novel, which will be Bishop’s. Rating: 4 stars
