Product Description

ENTIRE SERIES AVAILABLE NOW: Becoming a Jett Girl, Being a Jett Girl, Forever a Jett Girl and a spin-off book, Repentance: The Story of Kace Haywood

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence, which dictates the outcome of your future.

I was once on top, I was living the life I dreamt of, I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content…until one night.

One off day.

One moment in time I wish I could take back. My biggest regret.

The once bright future I possessed vanished and in its place a dark world of self-hatred and loathing encompassed me.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

If like me you've been looking forward to reading Kace's story since reading Becoming a Jett Girl I'm happy to report it is well worth the wait. The story is told entirely from Kace's point of view and this is very much all about Kace. The story switches between the present where Kace is struggling to live with the guilt of his actions, and the past where we get to experience the events that lead to Kace's life falling apart. We are able to judge for ourselves whether or not we think Kace deserve a second chance. I did feel the way the storyline resolved was entirely predictable but given the genre that is to be expected.

Repentance is a captivating story. It is intense and I didn't realise how much the story had affected me until I felt the tears running down my face.

I've had this book in my to read collection for ages now. For some reason, I could never bring myself to read it. I knew it was going to break my heart. I loved Kase so much in the Bourbon Series, and just knew that his story was going to crush me. And it did. But I loved every minute of it. Thank you so much Meghan Quinn. This beautiful story broke my heart and put it all back together again. Weirdly, so glad I waited to read it. It was worth all the anticipation I put myself through ❤🖤

Found the H - Kace to be fixated on his past deed. The dialogue was repetitive and drawn out.
Liked the h - Lila. She put up with his downward spiral too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Took Me a Bit 19 October 2015
By TiffanyReadz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a fan of Meghan Quinn's funnier books, The Virgin Romance Novelist and Newly Exposed, this book was different from what I was use to. The deep, brooding side to her I suppose. Having not read the series where Kace was introduced, I felt a bit lost at times during his story and it took me a few chapters to really get into what was going on with him. I will review a bit vague as to not spoil any of the story line.

"Some people celebrate the day they were born. I celebrate the day my soul died. This is the story of my repentance." ~ Kace

Kace had his whole life ahead of him until that one night. One night changed everything he knew and now he has to live with the consequences. Carrying such a heavy burden makes Kace a very unlikable guy. He is moody, depressed and an all around a-hole most of the time. Surprisingly, he has a best friend that sticks by him repeatedly trying to bring him back from the dark side.

"I was emotionally detached, deprived, stripped bare because of my wrongdoings. I’d chosen to live in grief. I’d chosen misery. It was a slice of the penance I actually deserved." ~ Kace

And boy does he live by these words. Kace wants no help from anybody, including the one girl that loves him for who she knows he is, not who the public thinks he is. Kace can't let the walls of self deprecation down to let her in and risks losing her with his actions. Chapter after chapter we learn just how much the past is eating away at Kace and wonder if the guy will ever catch a break.

Meghan Quinn takes her readers back to Kace's past then to the present so we can see exactly what he has been fighting all of these years. The book is well written and I think I would have appreciated Kace more reading the previous books in the series. He is surrounded by a great group of friends with quite the story to tell as well. I was also glad to see the funny Meghan Quinn writing style through the character Goldie, she was the perfect amount of humor for such a heart wrenching story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 8 October 2015
By Helena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Meghan Quinn is a relatively new author to me as this is the only second book of hers that I have read and I'm swiftly adding her back catalogue to my TBR.

This book is a spin off from Meghan's Bourbon series that follows Jett Colby and his girls and as I have not read these books I found this can be read as a standalone but I think looking at the relationships and friendships I kinda wished I'd read the other books, not for lack of understanding but just because I really liked the secondary characters from this book.

Kace is quite a dark character, he is self loathing and hates himself for the sins of his past and his only reason for living is to provide for what he took away.

The book is written from Kace's POV and in the first person and I applaud any female author that can deliver a great male POV as its so hard to connect with the heroine in a story without hearing her thoughts and feelings but Meghan did a spectacular job of bringing Lyla to life through the words and thoughts of Kace and I felt a deep set connection to both characters throughout the read.

Lyla is sassy and she goes after what she wants, she sees the pain in Kace's eyes and she has her own demons and she is determined to give him his life back from whatever it is that is haunting him.

There really is some stunning writing in this book, Meghan's quirky writing style, which usually in my limited experience includes some feisty and sassy ladies, I especially liked Goldie and her manipulative ways of getting her own way, there is some dark subject matter involving Kace"s secret and I think it was portrayed well and sensitively and I really felt Kace's pain during these difficult scenes.

If you loved the Bourbon series then you will devour this book, its sad, funny, heartbreaking but just a fantastic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars He knew his life was to never know happiness and he wanted better for her than what he ... 9 October 2015
By Book Boyfriend Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Repentance: The story of Kace Haywood is about the life of Kace Haywood after his boxing career was taken away from him and one lapse in judgement changes his life. He lost his house, job, and the respect of everyone in his city. He had made a vow to live every day of his life as punishment, in misery, and grief. Kace was barely living only doing what he had to during the day and then drink his night away.

When Layla walking into Kace’s life there was an instant connection, but one that Kace wouldn’t let himself give in to. He knew his life was to never know happiness and he wanted better for her than what he could give her. Kace also knew he had to stay away from her because every moment he spent with her he wanted her more and more and knew that both their hearts would be torn to shreds with the inevitability that he couldn’t provide her with what she needed. She would ruin him.

No matter how much Kace hurt Layla she wouldn’t give up. She saw his heart, that he was a good, kind man underneath the troubled eyes and the hurt and wanted to save him.

I have to be honest that I was expecting more romance and suspense with this book. Instead, I found it sadder than anything else. It wasn’t angsty, but the more I read of Kace’s story the sadder I got for him as he continued to spiral further down the hole. Kace had stayed for his best friend, Jett, but now that Jett had found Goldie, Kace knew that he would be fine without him and he was ready to give up on life.

Meghan Quinn did a great job of at writing Kace and making us understand his thoughts and actions. We get both the present and the past and at times I was annoyed when a chapter would end and the next one would go back to the past when I wanted to more of the present. But you have to have Kace’s past to truly understand the reasons for his reactions in the present.

If I knew the story would have had less of the romantic suspense, I probably would have had a different mindset when I started reading it. You know how that can be when you are expecting one thing and get something else with a story. Sometimes it’s good and other times not. I’m not saying that this story is bad because it definitely isn’t I was just expecting something else and don’t want others to have that same experience.

** I was provided an arc by the author for a fair and honest review.**
4.0 out of 5 stars Repentance was an emotional ride, and I thought that Meghan pieced it together perfectly. 14 October 2015
By Naomi @ Naomi's Reading Palace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ve been keen to get my hands on Kace’s book, since the very first time I met him. He appeared to be a dark and broody guy and I wanted to know what happened in his past that shaped him to be that way. Repentance was as difficult as I thought it would be, visiting Kace’s past and seeing how much he despised himself, and felt he didn’t deserve happiness.

Each chapter alternated between the past and the present. I saw what Kace was up to now, and then I would get a story from the past that was important in regards to the man he is today. In the present, I could see him struggling with his feelings for Lyla, because he felt that he wasn’t supposed to find any type of happiness.

In the past, I watched Kace get everything he dreamed of, only to have it all shatter around him, and just when he thought he was at his lowest, his world was rocked again. I loved how Jett was there, every step of the way, trying to help Kace through it all, but it was difficult when Kace didn’t want to be saved. Kace functioned day-to-day, helped Jett with his club, but never let go of his demons.

Repentance was an emotional ride, and I thought that Meghan pieced it together perfectly. Kace had many lows and didn’t know how to get out of the hole that he found himself in. Lyla kept fighting for him, but in the end there is only so many times a girl can be rejected before she has enough. Kace has such a kind heart and I loved what he did to make amends, despite how difficult it was. I was happy with how it all tied up and I closed the book with a sigh knowing that all characters involved had great futures ahead of them.

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I first met Kace Haywood reading Meghan Quinn's Bourbon series.  Even as much as I liked Jett Colby, Kace was always there in the back of my mind.  He was the one I wondered about and felt for.  I wanted to know his story, understand him and why he felt so unlovable and undeserving.  I was super excited to find out that this book was coming out and it was as great as I had hoped.  Kace thinks that he has ruined the lives of a woman and child because of one night that he can never take back.  His life had already started unraveling at the seams and one action sealed his fate.  Jett, who has been Kace's friend since they were kids, helps keep Kace out of trouble and gives him a job when his fighting career is over.  Kace works at the Lafayette Club, helping the Jett girls.  Now that the Lafayette Club has closed and Kace is going to be working at the community center, he has to face more than one of his demons.  With Lyla he wants more, he wants to be loved.  She might actually understand more than he thinks.

This is a touching story that Ms. Quinn has written.  Tragedy, friendship, punishment, pain, love.  Truly the story of Kace's repentance.
