Cover by: Okay Creations
Through every drop of blood I spilled, I lost a piece of my soul. I’ve sacrificed seven long years and the woman of my life for the Family. With prison behind me, I’m finally taking the reins of my destiny. I won’t allow the choices of my past to define my future. But I’m not done fighting—not yet.
Eve is still out there.
I will stop at nothing to get her back.
After having my heart torn out by the son of the biggest crime family in New York, I was forced to start over in California. With three thousand miles between me and my past, life is finally set on cruise control. I’m a lawyer at one of the best law firms in the country, I own my apartment, and I even have a doting boyfriend by my side.
As for love?
It’s not worth the fight.
*Redemption (Vincent and Eve Book 3) is the final book in the Vincent and Eve trilogy. You must read Rising (Vincent and Eve Book 1) and Reckoning (Vincent and Eve Book 2) in order to enjoy the conclusion of this heart-stopping romance.

P L O T
Set years after Reckoning ended (let’s not forget about that cliffhanger) Eve has a life now, she’s successful, she’s finally out of the blue houses, but like any other love story she’s not entirely happy. There’s a hole that only one man can fill but she thinks that man left her for good. This second chance romance is letting sparks fly all over the place! Vincent doing his best to get back his girl and Eve is fearing for her own heart because he might leave again and break her even more.
We’re silent, but my heart pounds a mile a minute. Can he heart it?
C H A R A C T E R S
This final installment to the trilogy is so far from the Vincent and Eve we all knew from the first two books. They were young, crazy in love, and full of life. In this book they’re kind of like walking on eggshells around each other, cautious with their movements and reactions and I just want to see them happy again.
They have both grown up, two mature adults making mature decisions. Planning for their individual futures. But the heart wants what it wants and it’s complicating things. Eve had a role to play to save someone’s life and I think that scene was the clear indication that she’s not the same fearful girl back in Rising.
Love shines from her voice. But encasing her emotion is strength.
W R I T I N G
I’d say the aura of this book is so different from the first two books because everything is different. It’s a new place, a new time, and though we have the same old characters they kind of are different because of their growth.
He stares up me hotly. Holy shit. Vincent is so sexy it’s insane.
O V E R A L L
That ending was just so bittersweet. What a goodbye it was to our beloved characters and it really felt like a closing of a book, the end of a story. I can’t wait for more from Jessica. Though it’s not entirely over yet because there’s a spin-off to the series with a certain character’s story. Look up Warrior Undone for the deets.
