***Review - The Redemption by S.L. Scott - 3 Stars***

The Redemption by S.L. Scott
Out Now!!!

3 Frustrating Stars

The Redemption is a standalone novel. The Resistance is a standalone novel, but the two books share characters and background.

He was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.

Soulful, amber eyes 

A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation

A body that beckoned for sin

Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years. 

Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.

Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever? 

The Redemption is book #2 in The Resistance Series but it's actually the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.....

This book is FRUSTRATING!!!!! It goes round and round in circles and I'm sorry to say that if I were Rochelle I would have cut my losses and dumped Dex's ass and moved on!!!!

This is the main issue I have with this book I just didn't like Dex!!! 

Rochelle has a justifiable and perfectly reasonable reason for doubting Dex and the decision to move on with her life!

But what's Dex's excuse, that he has lots of shit going on... Well don't we all!!!

I really didn't take to him at all in fact I'd go as far as to say I kinda disliked him!

I liked the stuff when Dex and Rochelle were together as a couple I found them cute and sweet but then we got into the age old get close for him to pull back and need to reassess his life. 

Well seriously he can't have wanted her that much and he was a seriously lucky bastard because anyone else would just have moved on!!

Although this was s standalone I feel like I would have benefited from having read the first book in the series....

I didn't hate this book I just found it a little long winded and I'm just not sure what happened at the end to make this time the keeper????

Sorry but this book was just ok for me 3 stars
