Product Description

Some secrets are best left untold...

Mia Lee escaped to the sleepy little town of South Boston, Virginia with the intent to be normal, and to find a place she could call home.

Sadly for Mia, her past has come back with a vengeance, and forced her to flee yet again.

This time, however, she’s not alone…

Mia and Quinn are on the run, fleeing for their lives, while attempting to prove their innocence for a crime they did not commit.

But with a tainted past like Mia’s, it was inevitable that one day, it was going to catch up to her in a way she never fathomed.

One ill-fated decision leads to an explosion of unimaginable events, and now Mia and Quinn are not only running for their lives, but also, for their redemption.

3.75 stars--SOMETHING LIKE REDEMPTION is the second installment in Monica James’s contemporary, new adult Something Like Normal series focusing on Mia (aka Paige) Lee and Quinn Berkeley. The series must be read in order. There is important information contained within each storyline and each novel ends with a cliff hanger leading to the next installment.

Told from first person point of view (Mia) the premise follows Mia and Quinn on the run from the law and from the man who wants to destroy her life. Suspected in not one but two murders in Quinn’s hometown, Mia and Quinn struggle to remain in control on the road. Mia continues to keep Quinn at arm’s length hoping to protect him from the horrors of her life but her continuous need to push Quinn away is aggravating and infuriating; at times almost impossible to accept especially when her need to run from Quinn, and her jealous behavior, places both of them in danger time and again. Mia does not want to depend on anyone and she is fast becoming dependent on the man by her side.

We follow Quinn and Mia as they make their way across country heading to Canada in search of Mia’s mother; from seedy bars to even seedier motels, beautiful scenery and busy cities, our couple battle one another while on the run, hoping someone will prove their innocence back home. Quinn’s dark secret and even darker past continues to build a wall between our couple when Quinn refuses to talk.

While on the road, the relationship between Quinn and Mia continues to build. There are moments of pure happiness followed by painful memories and the realization that they are on the run. Mia and Quinn will cross paths with a former friend and in this their life on the road will never be the same.

I really enjoyed these two books in the series. I hope there is another one in this series letting us know what happens to the daughter and her boyfriend after her father captured them.

HASH(0xa7f366b4) out of 5 stars Bravo Monica James, Bravo! 14 October 2014
By JC @ All is Read - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
OMG… so I don’t even know where to start with this review. Have you ever read one of those books where there is so much you want to say but then you don’t want to say too much and give away all the juicy awesome parts of the story…yeah that is my dilemma.

Something Like Redemption picks up right from the point where Something Like Normal ended. Mia’s past makes an appearance placing both her and Quinn on the run, hopping from one place to the next. With Mia’s past always one step behind her and the police also on their tail, Mia and Quinn have to determine who they can trust as well as learning how to trust each other.

For all you action seekers who loved the thrills of the first book do not get disappointed as this book though it has its thrilling moments is not heavily focused on the action. This book is all about Mia and Quinn’s relationship with each other. Their fears, their heartache, their past and the decisions that will impact their future.

I loved this story. I love the strength and passion of Mia and Quinn. Mia is headstrong and determined to ensure that the people she loves don’t get hurt so much so that she is willing to do everything in her power to push them away. But there is a problem with her plan because Quinn is also stubborn and determined to stay right by her side no matter the cost. Mia has never had anyone care for her like Quinn, never had the safety of someone’s arms around her or the peace that comes with Quinn’s presence. It’s new to her, scary, frustrating, heartbreaking and simply amazing. In Something Like Redemption we see Mia embrace this new part of her life that is Quinn. After much struggle of course and though she has her moments of doubt and insecurity we see Mia begin to accept what she deserves; the love and protection that Quinn is so willing to offer her.

And Quinn, he has never faltered in his efforts to be with Mia, his feelings for her are so strong they literally leap off the page and squeeze your heart. Despite Quinn’s hard exterior we get to see so many sides of him in Something Like Redemption. We see his compassion, his fear, his love and just how much he is willing to sacrifice for Mia, to keep her safe. We also get some more clues into the past that Quinn has been so hell bent on keeping a secret. We begin to see how Quinn is struggling with his inner demons and though he cares for Mia deeply he is not convinced that he deserves her.

This title of this book is so appropriate as this entire story is about these two lost souls Mia and Quinn trying to redeem themselves and make up for the ill choices they have made in the past. For Mia, Quinn is her ray of hope; he offers her a home for her heart and promises to keep it safe. For Quinn, Mia is a ray of light in his darkness. A chance for him to protect what matters the most to him even if it means giving up his own life in the process.

The character development in this book is phenomenal, it’s rare when you get a whole book in a series dedicated to just building on the relationship between two characters. It gives you such an inside view into what these characters are feeling; making you that much more invested in what happens to them in the future and what they may have to endure. This book will still give you that thrill of the chase with some of its plot twist and turns, and you will still find yourself blushing and getting all hot and bothered by some of the hot intimate moment between Quinn and Mia. But this book will also leave you with something else; it will leave you with a warmth spread over your heart and a hope that Quinn and Mia will finally find Something Like Redemption.

HASH(0xa7f36bb8) out of 5 stars and the story continues 31 July 2015

Okay so much happens in this one.

Lifts off right where the last one ended, so it's helpful to read or re-read before starting this one. It ends in a cliffhanger.

Quinn and Mia are on the run from the police, Hank and her dad. They travel across the country attempting to hide in plain sight but not doing a very good job of it and running into an old high school friend.... and this is where I started to not like this part. It was so obvious that Justin was not who he says he is that it's ridiculous...and that those losers can find her all the way across the country seemed odd... and unrealistic.

Q and M are steadily building their relationship and while Q's attitude is noble, I found him a little too alpha male for my taste. Am curious about her Mom though and how they can get saved and stay together, so will read book 3!

HASH(0xa7f36eac) out of 5 stars So good & so refreshing! 16 October 2014

I AM SO DYING TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!!!!!! When is the next book coming out?! I am really loving this series. I feel that it is refreshing to have a couple fall in love so slowly. Most books these days the "I love you" comes so quickly. What a wonderful story of two from rough backgrounds making anything possible! I really can't wait for the next book!
HASH(0xa7f36f54) out of 5 stars A heart stopping romantic suspense! 30 December 2014
By Bianca - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Nothing could have prepared me for this story. I absolutely loved the first in the series and had to continue. But this book? It blew me away! Monica James has always been a favorite of mine, but she absolutely poured her heart and soul into Something Like Redemption.

“...because as long as he’s happy and free-I can live with anything.”

Something Like Redemption picks up right where book one, Something Like Normal, left off. Mia and Quinn are running away. They are in some serious danger, and of course Quinn refused to let Mia run away alone. But there is some heavy guilt. As much as Mia feels for Quinn, she knows the danger she faces and does not want him to endure a fate that is meant for her. But Quinn never backs down. He challenges and pushes Mia back harder every time she pushes him away. Quinn and Mia have this pull on each other’s hearts that the author never explains, she simply allows you to live and feel this pull.

“He is the eighth wonder of the world. Scrap that-he is my first and only wonder of the world.”

As Mia and Quinn are on the run, there is a slow shift in their relationship. They begin to realize that there is something much deeper between them. And that feeling is not going anywhere. It grows stronger as each day passes. As they overcome each obstacle, their connection is truly solidified. What Mia and Quinn have is so genuine. It’s felt in every scene. The emotion, the angst. You will feel everything. I love that the author doesn’t force a love story, it naturally happens. Yet the words are not spoken. They are simply felt.

“...and this is the first time in two days I have felt alive.”

As a reader you become so hypnotized in what these two feel for each other. It’s so deep, so consuming, yet there is so much about them to discover. They are not easy. But then again, love is never easy. It’s hard to imagine that this broken girl has become Quinn’s whole life. She becomes his. In every sense of the word. And Mia doesn’t understand it...until her heart allows Quinn to find his way inside.

“But what’s more hypnotic is the steady of Quinn’s heart which is beating wildly in sync with mine.”

Don’t be mistaken. You will not be able to put this book down. Something Like Redemption has it all, suspense, and romance. You are left on the edge during the entire time. You have no idea what to expect from one moment to the next. The author weaves the story into an addicting adventure on love, life and redemption. Mia and Quinn are easily a testimony of love and all it’s strength, resilience, and power.

“Because, Red...I don’t want you to stop looking at me the way you do.”

Something Like Redemption is simply a great continuation of Mia and Quinn’s story. There is so much that happens that the reader must experience. I cannot put it into words. I love that this series is not predictable. Monica James puts her unique twist on romantic suspense. I cannot wait to see what is to come for this series and it’s characters.
HASH(0xa7f36e40) out of 5 stars Something like...Incredible! 30 November 2014
By KelHawk - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Something like…Incredible! What a wild ride! Monica James does not disappoint. We pick up right where we left off where Mia and Quinn are on the run. Mia’s past has finally caught up to her. Her friends stand by her side and do not disappoint. They stand by her completely. Quinn and Mia are on the run. Mia is struggling with her own demons. She feels like everything is her fault and she has a hard time processing this as she has never had loved ones she wants to protect before. She and Quinn are learning more about each other with each passing day. They both have their own pasts to deal with but are learning to trust each other entirely. I can’t go into depth about how the story unfolds as it is something you have to experience for yourself. Mia experiences a lot of firsts with Quinn that we all take for granted. But don’t for a second think this is a typical love story, because it isn’t. There are so many twists and turns. You just know something big is going to happen and when it does, well, I will let you fill in the blank. WOW!

A few of my favorite quotes:

“It’s been said that before you die, our life flashes before your eyes. All the good, all the bad, all the significant, or the non-significant, it’s all meant to flicker before you, presenting you with an epiphany. And then in turn, you’re meant to embrace death, and accept it’s your time.” … “But what happens if you’re not ready to die? What happens if your life is snatched out from under you, with no real say as to why it ended so suddenly?”

“I hate that look. That ‘sucks to be you’ look. It’s a look that makes you feel weak. It’s a look that makes you feel like a victim. And no one wants to be a victim, especially someone who knows firsthand how that feels.”

“At the start of this journey, it was all about revenge and vengeance, but now? Now it’s about survival.”

“I’m spent. I’m sticky. And I’m shaky. But would I trade this feeling for anything in the world? Hell to the f**k no.”

Everyone is running from something. It starts as revenge and vengeance but sometimes there are bigger things that are happening. This is a must read. The story ends with one hell of a cliffhanger, again, but I am (im)patiently waiting for the 3rd installment. Absolutely cannot wait!
