Product Description

Product Description

How do you protect someone from the darkness when that’s all you know? I tried to fight it. I tried to get her to run from me. I tried everything I knew to get her to despise me. But she never faltered, pushing back at every turn, unknowingly bathing me in her light. But could her light save us both?

Mason Maxwell resigned himself to a life of loneliness, forced into a world he didn’t want, but he had no choice. He had to remain in the darkness if he wanted to save the only living family he had left, his sister Adeline. While his life was desolate, it was simple. That was, until he met her.

Lila Stone was doing everything in her power to keep her head above water, taking care of a sick mother while trying to find yet another job to support them both. Little did she know her life would take a drastic turn when she was shoved towards a life, and a man, she had never even imagined.

3.0 out of 5 stars Keep Reading. It Gets Better 12 May 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

“Redemption” is one of those novels where you’re not a fan of the actual story and the events taking place (at the beginning), but then end up really liking the last half. Well, that’s how it was for me. It’s your typical love story of two beautiful people from two different worlds, both broken (how I really, really hate that word). Lila, a good daughter who works at whatever job(s) in order to pay for all her mother’s medical expenses, and Mason being so filthy rich (what? you thought he’d be poor? are they ever?), trying to exude the alpha in him by degrading, humiliating and controlling her, always with the threat of losing her job if she doesn’t acquiesce.

Maid uniform

"When the bathroom door swung open, I actually had to take a step back. The uniform I had given her was more of sexy maid’s outfit, not a real uniform at all. The skirt was barely covering her satin panties and even though she was still wearing her bra, her breasts were on full display, causing my breath to catch in my throat. I had never in a million years thought she would actually go ahead with it, but seeing her standing in front of me, practically naked, I knew she was more than I’d bargained for. But I couldn’t let her know it, so I went right back into d**k-mode. “What do you think?”

“Why are you doing this to me? What do you get out of humiliating me?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s the required outfit, and if you don’t like it, then leave.””

Live-in position

““As you know, Lila, this is a very large house and it requires a lot of upkeep. And as such, I am going to need you to…” My words were cut off as I finished my drink. “… move in here while you’re employed under my services. This is now a live-in maid position.””


““I wanted to give you a list of rules you’re to follow while you're in my employment. It’s short, but I reserve the right to add to it at any time.”

“There will be no unapproved visitors. You will receive a key to the house, but if you lose this key, you will not receive another. If this happens, you will have to work around my schedule in order for you to leave the house and come back again. You will have your own private quarters, equipped with your own bathroom.” She stopped quickly and took a breath before reading the last rule. “There will be a curfew of eight o’clock, to which you must be in the house for the night. You will work Monday through Friday, having both Saturday and Sunday off, but again, you will be in the house at eight o’clock.” She stopped abruptly after reading that and stared at me, mouth wide open. “You can’t be serious. I have a curfew? I’m not a child, Mr. Maxwell. You can’t make me follow this, especially on the weekends.”

“I can, and I will.””

Throughout it all they're both fighting the obvious attraction they have for one another and, of course, end up in bed together where they declare their love for one another.

While many readers will find Mason to be sexy because of his alpha traits, I’m not one of them. I thought he was an obnoxious a**hole. His excuse for all his demands is so she’ll quit her job, leave and then never be consumed with thoughts of her. I don’t think so. If anything, his demands fulfill his own twisted fantasies. But who’s worse? Him or her for going along with it all? At this point I was thinking of chucking it all in, but I kept at it. Surprise, surprise. The tone of the novel changed and it changed for the better as an actual story started to take place. We learn more about Mason, his job, his father, and the mysterious calls that have him leaving the house at all hours. Talk about a story that turns out to be quite intriguing that has now captured my full attention making me want to read each and every word. What can I say except I really enjoyed the last half. I’m not going to spoil it for you so I’ll leave it at that. Just know that the one-star rating I was originally going to give “Redemption” changed to a three-star rating. At least it got better, not worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great S. Nelson book! 20 May 2016
By The Bohemian Housewife - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have picked this book up a few times these past few days, but I just didn't feel like reading. I would put it down after a page or two. Today, I said enough was enough - I've had this book for at least a year and I need to read it. Well, now I know if I would have finished the first chapter I wouldn't have been able to put the book down. I read half of it before I realized my husband would be home soon and I hadn't started dinner/done the dishes. After I was finished, I told him via phone call that dinner was on the stove and sat back down to read the second half of the book. It was that addicting. While I'm normally not a fan of Alpha guys, I was okay with Mason for some weird reason. He was definitely very alpha. I liked Lila too, she was stubborn but a bit more submissive than I would ever be. That being said, I understand where both characters are coming from. They both have their reasons for being the way they are.

Redemption is labeled as contemporary romance, but I would say it's probably dark romance? or maybe suspense? Its plot is no walk in the park, I can tell you that. The story never slowed, and I liked that it never felt like it was dragging on. S. Nelson is good at that, her first book 'Stolen Fate' was just as well paced. I would read more from her in the future, and I'm sure I would like it just as much. I'm a little sad I waited so long to pick this one up. If you're looking for a suspenseful darker read, with a strong alpha, Redemption is probably for you. (I did get a copy from the author for an honest review, but my thoughts are my own)

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption and the Maids Uniform 12 December 2015

Redemption by S Nelson
I am a huge fan of S Nelson work – I love her style of writing and her story plots have twists and many “oh my word, did not see that one coming” moments. This story was great with some giggling moments, the maid’s uniform being one. This is the story of Lila and Mason. Lila take a job as a maid at Mason house, to assist her mother who is dying of cancer. Mason is dark and broody. Mason tries hard to keep away from his attraction to Lila and by doing so, sends to many mixed signals. This book does touch on taboo subjects such as human trafficking and abuse. However this book is a love story of note and one that I truly enjoyed. Would I recommend it? Yes, most definitely.

Please be warned that it does touch on some touchy subjects such as Human traffacking, abuse etc

I loved this story it was my first book by S Nelson and it did not disappoint at all. This is Mason and Lila story. Lila is a sweet girl that works so hard to take care of her mother who is sick but when she loses her job and end up as mason maid he is not so happy about it. Mason has a dark past and secrets that he is hiding from everyone but when his past shows up and puts lila in danger a somewhat dark and twisted story unfolds. I finished this story the same night that I received it because I refused to put it down without finding out what happened this is a truly amazing read. :) :) :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and intense read. 26 February 2015
By BEX - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bloody superb story! With many hot and intense moments 'Redemption' made for a read which was impossible to not inhale in one sitting. Great characters enabled this story to be one I actively cheered for and kept me guessing along the way, while the amazing creation of tension left me gasping for breath and speeding toward the end in my desperate attempt to chase the ending I desired. And what an ending! I LOVED every moment.
