Review & Giveaway! Happy Release Katie Ashley, Redemption Road!



REDEMPTION ROAD by Katie Ashley

About the book:
Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, gives in to an attraction to a sexy biker she meets one night. 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?



REVIEW!
Katie Ashley can write no wrong. Redemption Road is the second book in her Vicious Cycle series. This book follows Rev Malloy and Annabel Percy. 

Annabel is the daughter of a top politician. When her wild side gets the best of her, she ends up in a situation no female should ever have to endure, let alone think of. When one of the club member's of the Hell's Raider Motorcycle Club's daughter is taken by the same person Annabel is taken by, Rev goes on a mission to get the daughter back... What he finds is a very broken and battered girl, Annabel. 

Rev saved her. My goodness that man broke my heart. He had demons and darkness from his past too that made him very relating for Annabel. When Rev is left with no choice but to take Annabel with him to keep him safe from the man who took her, Rev & Annabel develop a connection.

I am not going to give more than that. This book for me topped the first one in the series. I loved the beautiful notes of this book. I loved the brokenness of this book. I fell in love with Rev & Annabel. And of course I loved Willow, that little stinker. 

Katie Ashley wrote this book so well. It flowed. It was different yet so good and even though it took on a darker note than I am used to for her, I loved it all the same. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Redemption Road will be hard to top!

Excerpt: 

“What are you doing?”
“Getting you into the shower.” At what must’ve been my skeptical expression, he added, “It’s the fastest way to get you warm.”
“I see,” I murmured.
He made quick work of turning on the water and testing it with his fingers. When it seemed to his satisfaction, he turned back to me. I still sat on the toilet, shivering and trembling.
We stared at each other for a moment. Rev jerked a hand through his hair. “Yeah, uh, I guess I better let you get in now.”
When he started to go, I grabbed his arm. “Wait. I need help getting out of this dress.”
His eyes flared at my request. It wasn’t a come-on in disguise. I had needed the help of one of our maids earlier tonight to get it zipped. Instead of asking me to stand up, Rev bent over my back, bringing his hands to the zipper. Slowly, he tugged it down.
As the front gaped open, I didn’t bother trying to cover myself.
Rev’s hands momentarily faltered, and when I looked up, I met his gaze, which was staring at my bare breasts. I hadn’t needed to wear a bra because of the tight-fitting bodice. He cleared his throat several times, then tugged the zipper the rest of the way down.
There was not a doubt in my mind, heart, or body about how much I wanted him. I knew he expected me to want to take things slow in the sex department, but that’s not how I felt. Regardless of the ghosts of the past, I wanted him more than I had ever wanted any man. I wanted him to be the one who proved to me that sex was physically and emotionally safe. That it could be a loving act between two consenting people.
But with the roller coaster of feelings rocketing through me, it was more about an all-consuming lust and desire.
When Rev stepped back from me, I rose to my feet. The dress slid down my body and pooled at my feet, leaving me in only my panties. Both empowerment and vulnerability raced through me.
“Rev, I want you to look at me.” He shook his head and kept his gaze on the floor. “I said I want you to look at me,” I repeated.
“That’s not what this is about. It’s about you getting warm before you catch pneumonia,” he countered.
“I could care less about getting sick. Right now what I care about is seeing the man I love want me sexually. To look at me like he wants to devour me.”
His eyes, which burned with lust and unfilled desire, snapped to mine. “How can you ever doubt even for a second how I feel about you?”
I threw my hands up. “Because I’m standing practically naked before you and you won’t fucking look at me!”
“We’re both teetering at the edge of uncharted territory. After everything you’ve been through, I would rather die than hurt you.”
“You hurt me more when you won’t look at me or touch me,” I protested.
With an agonized sigh, Rev finally allowed his gaze to rake down my body. There was no feeling of embarrassment or inadequacy. Just the look on his face warmed me from head to toe. “You’re so beautiful,” he murmured.
Tears stung my eyes from his adoration. “I am?” I questioned.
He smiled. “Every inch of you.”
