Product Description

Product Description

From the USA Today Best Selling Author comes the second book in The Syndicate Series.
Roan Diamond's loyalty to the family may be obligated by blood, but nobody ever said he had to love them all, right?
As the next in line to head the Diamond dynasty, he has loose ends to take care of, and one of those is his brother Royal. Yet his plans for revenge fall apart the minute he lays eyes on Alina--Royal's ex-girlfriend, who also happens to be the daughter of the rival Solokov family.
As a mafia princess, Alina Solokov knew it wouldn't be easy when she made the decision ten years ago to leave the family for a new life at a college in England--but betrayal is often a dish served cold by those who you love the most. Now, back in the United States after a job offer that she couldn't refuse, her new found strength is pushed to the limits when Royal returns to claim her for his own.
When the man who captures her heart amongst the chaos is front and center in a lifestyle she swore never to return to, can she hold her ground and fight being sucked back into the black hole that is the mafia underworld? Or will Roan's love be worth the ultimate sacrifice?

The redemption of Roan is the second book of the Syndicate Series and it was freaking brilliant. Absolutely love it. This book is pack with action, suspense, anxiety, passion, love and most definitely hot, sexy, steamy parts that will make you panting for more. I was on edge of my seat with every page I turned to the end of the story. I love the way characters from The Wrath of Cain book 1 were an intricate part of this book as well, definitely worth reading before the Redemption of Roan book 2 and won't be disappointed. I love Roan and Alina, they are very one hot and sexy couple.
I can't wait to see what Kathy Coopmans will have install for us with her next book.

Roan, Roan, Roan…sigh…Roan, Roan, Roan…

I wasn’t sure how Kathy Coopmans was going to up the bar from The Wrath of Cain but somehow she did. She exceeded every expectation I had. Roan was a sweet side character in the first book but man, in this book he grew into an amazing character. He was just … he was just so everything. He was strong, sexy, hot, sensitive, loving, protective…I could go on and on but you’ll get it once you read the book. Now, aside from Roan being everything, the storyline was amazing! It’s a fast paced, action packed read that will leave you on the edge of your seat. I did not want to put this book down. I read it in a day. I made excuses to the family because I just had to finish this book and then when it was over…ugh, major book hangover. So now I am looking forward to Deidre’s story… sorry book 3 but you have some rather BIG shoes to fill!

What starts out as wanting to use Alina to lure his brother back soon turns into Roan wanting to protect her. So he watches her and keeps an eye on her. Alina has been through hell and back all because of her relationship with Royal (Roan’s brother). She belongs to Roan’s enemy’s family. A family she wants nothing to do with. All she does is work and spends time with her best friend Deidre. She becomes aware that Roan has been following her and she confronts him and ends up shocking them both when she finally agrees to go out on a date with him. The chemistry between Roan and Alina is HOT! Their connection is intense. I loved these two characters together. They made sense together. I’m not going to give you a full report on what happens in the book, just know that this book has sooo much more action than book 1 and I didn’t think that could be possible. It wasn’t over the top done. It flowed and made perfect sense.

I cannot say enough great things about this book. It’s simply wonderful. It has moved into my top 5 favorites list.

5.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT MISS THIS AMAZING READ 15 December 2015
By Bloggers From Down Under - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
** Provided on behalf of the author for an honest review **

I watch her.
I stalk her.
I need to protect her.
She’s stunning.
She’s beautiful.
I need her.
I want her.
But I lurk in the shadows so she never sees me.
I need to keep my distance to keep her safe.
But the pull she has on me is too strong.
It’s time I reveal myself to her.

I see him.
I know he’s watching.
I know he’s following me.
I need to keep my distance.
He’s nothing but trouble.
His surname says it all.
He’s a Diamond.
I need to protect myself from him and his family.
But the desire is too strong.
I need to know what he wants.
I need the answers that only he can give me.
It’s time to reveal myself to him.

This is Roan and Alinas story.

Roan a Diamond, Alina a Solokov. Their families are enemies. They hate each other. But Roan and Alina cannot help the magnetic pull they have towards each other.

So battered and scarred Alina fears to be with Roan…..After-all he is a Diamond, and it was a Diamond that completely ruined her, shattered her into a million pieces, took her innocence ten years a go. But nobody knows what Roans brother Royal did to her. She has kept it secret until now.

Roan strips Alina’s walls. He needs to get to the bottom of her secrets. He needs her to open up so he can protect her from his own blood. His brother Royal. He’s a madman, he’s sadistic and twisted and Roan will stop at nothing to protect the woman he has fallen for.

But what happens when Alina’s secrets are revealed?
Can Roan protect her from Royal?
Will Roan be able to accept Alina’s past?
Will Alina ever be able to move forward?
Can two families who have been enemies for so long, work together to kill?
Can Roan kill blood?

You are just going to have to read The Redemption Of Roan to find out.

Omfg what can we say…….This novel is absolutely amazing. It’s edge of your seat stuff, always having you guessing at every turn. It’s raw, confronting, highly emotional and damn sinfully delicious.
We fell in love with both Roan and Alina from the very beginning, loving their story, their struggles, their fears, their strength, their fight for survival and their love. We were gripped from beginning to end.
But be prepared people……Roan what can we say……Mouthwatering delicious that will leave you drooling.

To Kathy Coopmans…….Thank you so much for giving us Roan and Alinas story, we absolutely loved it. We honestly can’t rate this book high enough. It’s a DEFINITE NOT TO BE MISSED read.

Guys you need to get on this novel…..You will not be disappointed.

A HUGE 5 star read.

4.0 out of 5 stars ” What a great addition to the Syndicate series 16 December 2015
By Amy Bosica - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars!!

“That one word–spark, the beginning to a fire, a storm brewing, a desirable connection between two people..”

What a great addition to the Syndicate series. The Redemption of Roan is told from dual points of view and is Roan and Alina’s story.

Roan is the next in line to take over the family business, but before he can do that, he’s got one last, but very important loose end to tie up; he’s got to get revenge on his brother Royal. Sounds easy enough, right? It was a simple idea until he set eyes on Alina. Once he saw Alina, he knew that there was no way he could continue on with plan. He found himself impossibly drawn to Alina and was thirsting for a chance to get to know her…..Alina may be a mafia princess by title, but wants nothing to do with the life. She wants to help and heal people, not hurt them. She’s finally returned home after many years abroad, hoping to get a fresh start, but she will be pushed to the limits, when Royal returns to her life. There are things about her past that no one knows about. See Royal has hurt Alina in the worst way possible. And now, Alina has found herself an unlikely and unexpected ally that will finally get her some justice from the pain Royal has inflicted. The last thing Alina was prepared for, was to fall for Roan, Royal’s brother. Terrified of what she is getting herself into, Alina will quickly learn that Roan is nothing like his brother. He wants to worship and protect Alina, no matter the cost. And when Royal comes back and begins to bring havoc and chaos into their lives, they will find themselves tested in ways they didn’t think was possible…..

The Redemption of Roan was a really great read. It was dark and intense and sexy. I was captivated by Roan from the moment I met him. I wanted to know more about him and loved his alpha personality. I loved how he was with Alina. At first, he wanted to use her to get to his brother, but then when he saw her for the first time, he knew that using her would be an impossibility. There was no way he could hurt her. In fact, he found himself needing her and wanting to protect her. I loved Alina and how strong her character was. She went through a very tough and intense experience and kept it to herself. She somehow managed to put it behind her, survive and create a life for herself. She had some reservations about Roan in the beginning, but I gotta tell you, I was so happy that she gave him a chance. The two them had some amazing chemistry and I just couldn’t wait to see where their story would go.

The Redemption of Roan is fast paced and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next. The story-line and the characters are so intriguing. You’ll find yourself desperate to know more about the characters and their stories. Yes, this story is dark and pretty intense. It does deal with some serious and at times intense subject matter, but it was handled in a very respectful way. That being said, this story is not just a dark tale, it does have plenty of romance, sexy good times and swoon worthy moments. I enjoyed everything about this story from start to finish and as this story wraps up, we were given a little taste of what to expect when the next book comes out, and I gotta tell you, I can’t wait to see where the next story will go!

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's time we all get our redemption." 15 December 2015
By Missy Harton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! I have been waiting for this book since I finished The Wrath of Cain! I highly recommend reading The Wrath of Cain (book one in the Syndicate Series) first, as it will give a better picture of how Roan and his family find themselves in this predicament. Roan is DEFINITELY swoon worthy! Alina can't resist his charm. Deidre is hilarious...OMG...what she goes through; book three will be interesting!! I'm LOVING this series. Can't wait for more!!!
Roan Diamond is on a mission. He will not stop until he finds his brother. He hopes to use a past love to draw him out of the shadows. Roan never planned to fall for Alina, but now that he has, he refuses for her to be involved in the capture of Royal.
For the last ten years, Alina Solokov has separated herself from her family. Dating a man that (her family welcomed with open arms) destroyed her innocence. She had to stay quiet in order to keep the peace. Spending time with Roan has convinced her to reconnect with her family. She doesn't agree with how they live, but she misses and loves them enough to overlook it.
There is a constant danger present with Royal's whereabouts unknown. A lot is at stake. Who will pay the ultimate price as Roan seeks his redemption?

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption of Roan might be my favorite of the series so far 15 December 2015
By MP604 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Roan will do anything to seek revenge on his brother, Royal, including using Royal's ex-girlfriend to draw him out of hiding. Except when he finally lays eyes on Alina Solokov, he's instantly captivated by her and he knows instantly that he can't follow through with his plans. After 10 years in London, Alina is back home with a job offer that she couldn't refuse and a new found strength. That strength is quickly tested when her ex-boyfriend, Royal Diamond, comes back to claim her once again.

Redemption of Roan might be my favorite of the series so far. It is captivating and suspenseful. Once, I started it, I could not put this book down. Kathy Coopmans really draws you into this story through her writing. The story-line was fast paced, unique and engaging. I love how loyal Roan is to his family and those he cares about. I admire Aline's independence and strength. The banter between her and Roan was very entertaining and their chemistry is palpable. Through the whirlwind that was Roan and Aline, there was also plenty of humor. Deidre had me in tears on more than one occasion. I really enjoyed the interaction with the supporting characters and Kathy introduced a few that I can only hope we get to read more about in the future. I can't wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family was never more complicated 24 January 2016
By diducky - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
*4.5 stars*
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book! Literally, I just COULD NOT WAIT!

Calla and Cain’s story started it all and I was not so patiently waiting for Roan and Alina. Mafia. That word conjures up so many different feelings and thoughts. Violence, revenge and crime spring to the top of the list but also love and family. How could love be party to such dark thoughts and deeds? I think it can because, at the end of the day, every family yearns for the same thing – happiness. What happens though when the light can’t reconcile the dark side? An emotional struggle and chaos of epic proportions. That is no stronger in evidence than in the Diamond and Solokov families… Alina and Roan are from families that, while not at war, uneasily co-exist. When Alina returns to the United States and begins to re-connect with her family, it is a catalyst that will blow both families apart…

I knew after reading the first in the series that these books were going to push my comfort level hard. Really, really, hard. Roan was handsome, successful and sexier than should be legally allowed. Protective doesn’t even begin to describe him. His way around a woman’s body is only rivalled by the sweet and dirty things he talks about…

“I want to take my c**k and pound into her so d**n bad. Draw out that bad girl in her. Make her naughty.”

Roan sounds perfect, doesn’t he? He would be if he didn’t lead such a violent life on the wrong side of the law. But, as in most things, there is that grey area that shows Roan to also be a loving son, a loyal friend and a man who can love his woman in a way that one dreams… Alina recognizes all the good, and not so good, about Roan. As they get closer, she has to wrestle with decisions she thought she’d already made. Will she come to the realization that those that love and cherish her – Roan, her family - are worth loving in return?

“You were worth waiting for, Roan…”

From start to finish this book had me on the edge of my seat and totally engrossed in the characters and plot. Friends, lovers, and family come together to fight a common enemy and become stronger for it. I didn’t want to leave the story for a minute, getting downright cranky with anyone, or anything, that tried to pull me away.

When I finally came to the ending… Wow, that ending… It was emotional, gritty, and bloody; the perfect climax to a book I couldn’t wait to finish but also never wanted to see end. Oh, and that epilogue? This author is torturing me… TORTURING ME!!! Instead of basking in the afterglow of a beyond satisfying story I am now, very impatiently, on watch for book three. 5+++ emotionally spent stars.
