Mel's thoughts...

Rising hooked me, Reckoning ruined me and Redemption !!!! Well Redemption consumed me. So the second and I mean it, the second Redemption hit my kindle I dove in and didn't come up for Air until I hit The End. One of my most anticipated reads this summer, I've been DYING for Redemption and the conclusion to Vincent and Eve. After being rocked to the core at the end of Reckoning I've been desperate to see what happens next for Vincent and Eve. So far the journey has been quite the ride. It's been 7 years since Vincent left Eve's heart shattered and me reeling from what happened at the end of Reckoning. And now well now Vincent is back and determined. They aren't college kids anymore, both grown and having spent so much time apart but the intensity is still there. I could literally feel it especially when they cross paths again. Vincent Borignone is a force, in your face the man is just hard to ignore. Is it their time finally, will they get to have the life they both wanted or will his obligations get in the way again. I can't even pinpoint what it is about this book I love so much because there are so many things. But their connection is one of those intangibles that you can feel. It's strong throughout this entire series, undeniable even thought everything in their lives says it shouldn't be. I couldn't help but NEED for this story to end well. But I also have to say that I love my books to have drama, suspense and angst and Redemption just like Rising and Reckoning did have all those elements which make for a highly entertaining and engaging read. I still can't help but be a bit in awe of the fact that this is Jessica Ruben's debut series and if this is how she comes out swinging then hell dang girl, let me know immediately what is up next. I'm a fangirl already.
