J&M's Book Diaries rating:
What a heartbreaking, emotional, & beautiful book. The Redemption; A story about looking back and accepting a horrific past, letting go, and moving forward. A true story about overcoming emotional and physical damage done by ones that are close to you.
In the first book we got to know Callie, and Kayden. These two broken people who came together to find love, & trust in each other, after years of keeping thier demons to themselves. In this second book they have to try to find away to heal and to move on & forward in life. They both have so much to work through in order to reach that happiness that they both want so bad with each other. They are the perfect couple; they are constantly facing demons but they do so much better facing them together. Together, they are the light to their dark, the hope to their despair, the laughter to their tears and the answer to their pain. They honestly complete each other.
The ending was a great lead in to what we assume will be Luke's story, and I'm looking forward to seeing what that will be.
