Redemption by Stephie Walls
Omg HOLY FREAKING EMOTIONS.
If you have never read a Stephie Walls book before you are MISSING OUT. Stephie has this magical ability to rip out your heart and tear it to pieces while breathing life into your soul. Her books are emotional, so, so emotional. They touch on every nerve ending, they make you feel almost as much as the characters do. Her words are like poetry formed in breathtaking verses that sing. Her passion to not only her words but her characters and their stories is clearly visible at all times. How Stephie writes these books I’ll never know but I urge her to never stop.
From the start of Redemption we are thrown into heartbreak and devastation. The suspense of the past claws at you while reading, it pulls on every internal string, enveloping. The flashbacks make you wonder and hold your attention so vividly. And when it all becomes clear it’s a shock. So brutal and it makes you fear for Lissa’s future.
Meshed in with this past is the present. A stunning, highly charged present filled with hope and love and redemption. Dan & Lissa are truly mesmerizing, they come together so well and they are HOT. They are raw, carnal and intense. They breathe hope into the most broken parts. They are amazing. Dan is amazing. A love that fierce is what every person dreams of having.
Through it all, the pain, the past, the love and the present, something fierce grabs onto you and DOES NOT LET GO. Everything pounds into you and just holds you captive.
Redemption is a raw tale of life becoming what you make it. There is always love, always hope. You just have to go out and find it.
5 emotional, intense, inspirational stars!
One horrific mistake.
One lifetime of hell.
Everything I got was justified, and all I lost warranted. No matter where I went, the hell of my past followed. There was no forgiveness, no reparation—I would spend the rest of my days trapped in purgatory. His pain was mine.
And then came Dan.
Followed by hope.
And possibly redemption.
