book blurb

When Claire walked away from Cooper, she thought she was doing the right thing, the safe thing. Marrying Robert was supposed to solve all of her problems.

Unfortunately, Claire’s view of Robert changes from perfect to terrifying when she sees a new side of her husband—a violent side.

The last person she expects to save her is Cooper. When he does, they form an alliance to bring Robert down for not only hurting Claire, but for the death of Robert’s first wife and Cooper’s mother, Marie.

As Claire digs deeper into Robert’s past, she learns some truths that can never be forgotten. Suddenly, Claire is in danger, and Cooper is the only one who can help her.

Enter the world of Claire, Cooper, and Robert as new alliances are formed, relationships are shattered, and feelings simmering under the surface are suddenly brought to light.

Can Claire survive the truth long enough for Robert to finally face retribution for his past?

my review

4.5 Stars

If you read the first book, (which is necessary) you’ll start Retribution just as I did. Ready for the epic implosion of the Evan’s household. There was too much there waiting to go wrong. It was unavoidable.

Claire married Robert. She wed him even though she didn’t love him and was worried that he was potentially a dangerous murderer.  She is so young and is desperate to have a home that she accepts so little for herself.  I wanted to be annoyed with her stupidity but I got it. There are monsters everywhere and some times the lesser evil is the one known versus all the unknowns. Robert has her exactly where he wants. Helpless. Desperate. Unemployed.  What can she really do??  She is broke and homeless without him.

Claire learns quickly and harshly that none of that matters – she should have listened to Coopers warnings. Here’s the twist though. Instead of it making her weak, the offense strengthens her will to survive and to escape the madness. Her character grows so much through Retribution – I was so proud of her. The initiatives she takes toward taking Robert down so she can get her life back. It’s awesome.

Layered onto all this crazy drama, is Cooper and Claire’s romance. Their lust and attraction was felt from their first interactions. But their friendship and connection is developed throughout this book. You’re rooting for them to succeed in their plot – you want them to escape and to find happiness together.

The climax of this story is crazy, crazy good. It’s intense and scary. You’re totally anticipating it – thinking you’re ready for it and BAM! The author blows you away. I loved it.

You do not want to miss out on this series – it is very suspenseful and entertaining.
