book blurb

How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache…

Or could you?

From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together…

Always.

Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler’s and Dean’s world—as they knew it—had ended.

Or had it?

Tyler

My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.

But had I truly moved on?

No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn’t I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.

I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.

But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day…

Everything changed.

Dean

You can’t hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn’t be dead. I wouldn’t allow you to be dead. You’re out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes…

I will finally make you MINE.

my review

4.5 Stars

I spent the last couple days reading Deviant and Redemption. Holy crap – what an intense ride!! Deception, manipulation – major plot twists and turns; this series is full of so much drama and suspense. You’re unable to put it down until the journey is over.

Dean and Tyler were best friends all throughout their childhoods. Their connection with one another is almost instantaneous and you’ll think their bond is unbreakable. It’s the kind of romance we all dream about and look for in our romance novels. That is until that love is shattered.

Redemption is the continuation of their story – they’re now adults and living worlds apart. You finally know why they were unknowing enemies – there really is so much to their story and I don’t want to give away anything.  (You’ll want to experience it yourself.)  Just know – they both still have secrets that they’re desperate to keep and they live in a world where they fear the unknown.

When it all falls apart and truths are revealed – it’s painful. There needs to be healing and atonement for past sins. Dean and Tyler’s path towards happily ever after is nothing short of crazy. The author weaves this intricate storyline and you’re impressed it all melds together and keeps your attention without being overwhelming or too much.

I absolutely recommend this series and look forward to reading more from Jaimie Roberts.
